The Magical one to ten prim house !

I saw this on the market place and was curious enough to buy it. At $99L its not overly expensive- so kerching it was in my shopping basket.

I am not sure how the 1Li house was achieved as its a good build, with a working door and some pretty details. Originally it seems this was built as a sim filler or for purely decorative purposes BUT – as people liked it enough to want to live in it – the builder (MeshPromo) also gives a version with some added features which takes the build to 10Li. I rezzed the 10Li version and was impressed! Id definately change the 4Li curtains as I have some of my own that are just 4Li, Id also change out the fireplace. While the fire is nice, at 2Li I’ve have nicer ones for 1Li – I’m such a prim miser ! This version also comes with a Hud that gives you four textures for seven parts of the house from the roof to the walls and more – brilliant ! Several colours of the build are included in the box.

Take a look at it on the market place and read more about it.

All you can see – $99L PROMO

Im always stalking the Inverse store on the market place – awaiting their latest intro offer on their newest homes. This one is called “Porto” and I really like it. You’ll need to hurry if you want it as they are pretty fast shelving the offer and then its full price – I got this yesterday and its just a 48 hour thing! You get three versions, unfurnished, furnished with shadows, furnished without shadows. (full furnished with shadows (262 LI) – full furnished without shadows (262 LI) – unfurnished (143 LI)) I like to catch them on a promo then sift through the furniture and grab what I like for my own home – yes I am a scavenger. The build is lovely and as usual most of the furnishings come with menus with adult and PG animations. I wont write any more but the link is below so you can read all about it and grab it while you can.

Crawl back into your Cave (Free)

I love a home, but even more I love a free unusual home ! Spotted this cave home by Felix for free on the market place. Its deceptively gorgeous and Id actually use it as a home or perhaps a retreat to retire too. The interior is rough stone with nooks and crannies that would suit decorating and adding some cosy touches. Amazingly its only 8Li (that includes the door which is scripted) I plonked it on the hill beside Zans home and it just sort of blended right in.

I’m a Gooseberry – Renting a home in Second Life

Well well well I have certainly struck lucky ! Decided to look around the rental home market and found this absolute gem. I am currently renting a home with Gooseberry Estates. I found them via their market place decor shop and was a little confused when I landed in the shop. However I was helped on my way by one of the estate managers Bren. I was fully expecting to find yet another cookie cutter estate – you know the drill? But I didn’t ! Hooray for Gooseberry and their rethinking of the rental market.

Soooo first decision was a small or large or premium plot – the small was $600L per week with 400 prims. I went with the small plot, which turned out to be pretty BIG really ! Chose a plot, paid the mailbox  et voila – I’m moving in. Now you may have experienced the skyhomes where you can choose from a selection of homes yes? This is similar (but better) land based – they do not de-rez when you leave unlike most of the sky home versions I have encountered. On the reverse of your mail box you’ll find the button that gives you a huge choice of homes – not just any old homes but the latest & greatest homes by all the cool designers on the grid ! They are also landscaped – mmhmm each house rezzes with its own landscaping – gawd a godsend for me. Every plot big or small is water facing and you are permitted to rez a little pier to enjoy the view of the water from.

Currently I am enjoying this Cory Edo house – but I am pretty sure in a few days I will change it out for something else! I have also joined the community group which looks to be pretty busy with events, gifts etc. I also read their gazette over my morning coffee – and learnt a couple of things I didn’t know about SL . There are heaps of cool things about renting on Gooseberry – go and take a look !

No beach? No Problem!

I came across this brill beach scene on the market place yesterday from CEBO Buildings. You could use it as a summertime backdrop for all your bikini snaps, it is modify also – so perhaps have a go at editing it. Add stuff of your own etc – however it does come with everything you see here. Also brill for a beach if you don’t have one – I’ve got mine in the sky above my studio platform – and just $125L .

Thrifty idea (Free)

One of my favourite past times in Second Life is looking at homes and whilst I was at AT Design I spotted a board saying “Useful”, on that board is a free gift of Skybox covers. If you never knew you needed one of these – well you DO! Such a nifty idea. We all have some of those gorgeous skyhomes right? The ones that are gorgeous inside but look like a carbuncle on the outside? Yeah you knowww. So in this box are covers, many different sizes with a texture change function with lots of different facades to choose from. Simple but effective and just 1Li !

Big Bang for Your Bucks!

You know how sometimes you see something and BOOM ! You just have to have ittttt. Well I mosied on over to the new home & garden event The Boardwalk – spotted this giant over sized wall clock by Z.O.E and knew I wasn’t leaving without it. Just 2Li , it actually does tell the time and super pretty – who couldn’t want it. Five colour options to pick from , I went with a traditional sort of Chinese blue pattern, as I’m pretty crackers on that type of design in real life *happy sigh*. $149L per colour , and that’s a whole wall in your home accounted for.
