Nothing in this first picture is free….apart from the Gift Boards of course lol.
I knew there was something special going on at the Trompe Loeil shop but totally forgot about it till Sparta dropped a note and I went running.
The reason I’m showing you this part of the shop is so you know where to look for the second lot of gift boards. The first set of three gift boards are at the shop entrance and easy to find unlike this second lot so when you TP in, turn to your left and you should now find it easy to find those two gift boards which are packed with old Christmas gacha’ prizes.
The three boards at the front door of the main shop have fatpacks of side tables and tables which are the same design but different shades. The third gift is a fatpack of lamps each a different style and the handful I did rezz also have an on off and the light they cast is so good.
I’d forgotten I’d rezzed one of the Christmas gifts in this picture.
So thats the rest of my lazy day sorted, going to get a coffee and then work my way through all the lovely and much appreciated goodies.t.
I’m hoping the grammar Police won’t come after me as the “Two” of the title is a reference to the Two Moon Garden Shop and not a grammar error.
I used to visit this shop pretty regularly so I’m not so sure why it’s been quite a few months since my last visit but that means new everything, new LM, new Builds and new Group Gifts/Mini Mania/Auction Board.
At the LM is where you will find most of the things mentioned inc these new group gift urns.
Since it’s been a long time since I last did a post I will do my usual rambling now feel free to just skip to the LM. The reason I love the Two Moon Garden shop is the premade builds, you can buy everything from a mansion to a farm a patch of grass or a small landscaped garden. Not everyone wants to faff and fiddle with their home/garden or just like to change from season to season or whenever the whim takes them and this is what Two Moon Gardens allow you to do. As for price and prims they’re more than reasonable for such quality and attention to detailing. If it wasn’t for the fact I love to faff and fiddle with my landscape I would just pick up one of their extremely easy rezzers and live in a Two Moon Garden build.
As always everything is actually editable so in this case the gifts you can see is the 2 planters and this next picture shows the lovely draping flowers from the urn and just placed into another planter.
I’ve only scraped the surface of whats new at Two Moon Gardens so when I log back in I will grab the note when offered for the LM’s to the different departments as they may have also changed. I will see if there is any other gifts/lucky boards as there used to be and of course have a lovely time checking out all the new builds as well as their autumn planting/gardens.
BTW This months auction board is something I would have been temtped to buy to live in and its a prebuild cottage with a garden in full autumn shades. You click and place your bid and I have found in the past as I’ve won a couple of these auctions that they usually sell for 150Lds. So check that out and with everything you can actually TP directly to the build to see it for yourself before you place your bid.
Next stop on my list was Vespertine and I saw all the free group gifts inc a window frame I’ve had/loved for a long time and totally forgot to check their gacha’s!
You can just about see the wire and lights which are framing my window. It comes in a fatpack of different lights/decor items and thats the same for that star light hanging in front. Each item is just 2 prims and are super pretty.
There are lots of pumpkins and some old and updated versions of the same thing so you may have the old version but not the new…doesn’t matter as yet again it’s so relaxing to work your way through it all and sort it out into neat little folders for your invent to eat up.
This is also a reblog but I’d forgotten how damned cute it is.
Just adorable, the glazed look is a glass dome over this little scene. Again I think only 2 prims and yet the detailing is excellent. This is the Customer Appreciation gift.
When I get back inworld I will be checking for any gacha’s and if they’ve been discounted. I don’t think that will be the case so don’t be suprised if there isn’t an update to this post. I think a lot of sellers haven’t either got the message or have decided not to discount their gacha’s which is actually fair enough. I think many of us, and I include myself in this, forget that behind the shops/creators/designers/sellers are people trying to make money to support themselves. So as much as a love a discount/freebie etc I don’t expect it….mind you if there are gacha’s and they have been reduced I will be going bat sh*t crazy clicking on them as I love the Vespertine range lol.
I was meandering around a shopping sim and spotted outside of a lot of the shops signposts for the “SLF Anniversary Event” and we all know that next to a Birthday Event an Anniversary one is just as good for goodies.
I’m only showing you two of the gifts from the gift wall next to the LM the rest I will leave as suprises and there is a nice mix of items as well.
I was actually in the Acrid shop, on the shopping sim, admiring a bed before I spoted the notice boards and this is their gift of a 1 prim neon tap. Very interesting and another reminder I need to start cleaning up the clutter on my land.
These shoes do look very familiar to me. I suspect they were a gift from a previous event/offer and of course I could be totally wrong as I did check and I don’t have these and I know I would have kept them.
No shade intended thinking that they might be old gifts dusted off as I always think when a gift is top quality they can put it out/keep it out for as long as they want as that gives everyone a chance to get them. I believe these are from a shop called “Look at me” and the style is familar but not the shop name.
I’m going to give you the 2 LM’s one for the event and the other for the shopping sim so once you’ve saved money on the freebies you can spend money in the shops.
PS. This event is over on the 31st so still a few days left and I will be returning to check it out fully myself when I get back inworld.
How often do I do a simple sit pose? Trust me it’s rare as I just struggle with anything other than a standard, standing pose and looking at the camera. In this case I decided to try my best to sit as I needed to cover up my Foo Foo to make sure this is a PG post lol.
This dress is a gift from the Dubai Event which is celebrating it’s 3rd Birthday which means lots and lots and lots of gifts. I did pick up a few random ones and then this which is the gift from the Nyne shop and I love that yellow/grey combo it’s really good. Lots of fits as well which is good because I did get other clothing from this event which I couldn’t model for you.
Also check out the hair, this is the same hair from my previous post in it’s dry stage. “Rachel” is a lovely smooth hair, with the newer fine texturing etc. Check out my last post for the details about it as it’s both a dry and wet hair.
PS. I did find a really good free hair at the Dubai event from No-match. To me when it comes to skin and hair I think it’s very hard to find free or cheap skin/hair so it’s the one thing that I think you should be prepaired to pay a reasonable amount for but so many people are on a SL/RL budget so I’m always happy when I find a decent free/cheap hair so make sure you go get that hair.
As I was sim hopping I spotted in the distance a massive Eiffel tower and a Ferris wheel which tweaked my curiosity so I quickly flew over and I’m glad I did.
They’re at a shopping mall called “Japan Super Mall” it’s a basic “mall” of cubes stacked on top of each other and each cube is packed with total random silly/basic/fun/cheap & unusual stuff. Yes a lot of stuff which has an old school sculptie look to which appeals to some and not to others.
I personally love this sort of shopping sim as it’s just so random you cannot help but walk from stall to stall checking everything out and so far because of RL limitation I’ve only scratched the surface of this event. So tomorrow I will log back inworld in the morning with a big mug of coffee and have a relaxing time checking the rest of the shops out and I’ve also got a couple of LM’s in a folder to check out.
As for this little garden/forest scene. I got this from the “Jad Gardens” stall. Sadly non mod but at only 5 prims a very handy little filler for someone with a small garden or a patch in an exsisting garden.
Osima is 4 years old and I believe there is a 50% sale going on…please check though.
This skirt is being used in the poster advertising it’s Birthday and to find it you have to look on the shelf with the other free group gifts…just follow the sign on the floor.
The skirt is another “classic” design so I’m not sure if I’ve blogged it or something very similar. Classic skirts like this are always a good find and with the addition of 28 excellent colours/patterns very handy indeed. Sadly the newer top that is being used in the birthday advert isn’t a group gift so I snagged this one from the shelf above and it too has a nice sized hud.
I know I’ve blogged the top and a couple of the other gifts out before.
As for the background, I’m using it as an excuse to get you over to Vita’s Boudoir.
A lot of you may recognise this shop and for those who don’t you’re in for a treat. Precious Restless is a designer both in RL and SL and her unique take on everything from clothing to full builds stand out for quality and uniqueness. As you can see that pouf is a gift for us.
I am assuming the LM will take you near to where this is but since the whole of the shop is spread over quite an area it will make it much easier to find it by taking this picture of it in the shop.
PS. The “OH NO” is I hate the lipstick I’m wearing but it’s too late to change it.
