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.

Decor Freaks ! (Hunt gifts)

Oh wow my flabber is gasted – seriously fantastic gifts from The Magical Winter Hunt ! Above I am showing the prizes from: Lunar Seasonal Designs, The Artists Shed  and Cleo Designs. The fireplace, fire,chair and snack table are from Cleo Designs – haven’t seen much from this designer lately and then BOOM – this pops up. (There were a few more little bits & bobs with this set but  a little too Christmassy for my tastes atm.) The astonishing picture is from Lunar Seasonal Designs – and its truly gorgeous – huge menu for the frame texture, the picture designs and even the stars – only 1Li, a real keeper for me. The lamp is from The Artist Shed, spot on trend and 5Li. Each prize is just $1L – now excuse me while I go and hunt down the rest !

All info, landmarks, and hints on the blog website HERE

P.S while your’e at Lunar Seasonal Designs, check out the new rezzable and playable games – ooOOooo I might have to buy one.

Moving on – $1L home !

I was dead chuffed to find this gift from Simple things & Forever summer today. Not everyone in Second Life changes their decor and surroundings when the seasons change – in fact for almost 8 years I lived on a tropical island year round (which is prolly why I have such an aversion to them now !) This is the “Trudy Tropical Island House”, its dead pretty and includes the patio, pool and all the trees and plants. You could use this straight outta the box as is – or play around with it.

You receive two versions one with everything and one with just the house – and beware none of it is in a rez box – so rez it in edit mode.

“The Trudy Tropical Island House is an open-spaced wooden house on stilts with 2 bedrooms. It sits on a man-made island with a swimming-pool. It has a spacious front balcony and extra-living area below the house. The house itself is 43 land impact and 22×26. The area for the ‘island’ and boulders is 36×43. The landscaping and pool are 90 land impact.”

It’s so low prim for what it is, Id use the whole thing and decorate – it’s no modify sadly but hey ho – what a find! The interior is nicely done with some shadowing and great wood textures. Limited time offer so grab it while you can. Check out the market place store while youre there – some other great builds for just $10L.

Winter Is Coming

My thoughts have already turned to winter decorating, Zan and I love to plan our winter theme early so we can get out and about spending farrrr too many Lindens in advance. I’m a big fan of Maya’s stuff, always stuffed full of furnishings, landscaping items and really cute animations. Everything in her store is $50L, and yes – that includes furnished homes with gardens!

This is the Martin Winter Cottage, a charming little home with a lounge, desk, fireplace, kitchen and even a loft bedroom. Every piece is animated and has the latest attachment scripts so no clunky attaching objects. What I totally adore is that Maya makes her items modify, so you can take out what you don’t need or want, or use items in other places or homes. I’m using a lot of her lighting lately as its so low prim and totally adorable. You get the snowy garden with this home, including some dead sweet winter trees and plants ! I would probably use my own bed (we always get used to certain animations don’t we?) and quite possibly add some more wintry plants – grab this and fool around with everything !

Deets: What you will get with this set?

✿ Small Room with Vanity

Free Seasonal Decor

I am totally loving decorating my home for the season, even better when I find such treasures for free! I think this little Basil sproutling from Apple Fall has been around the block a few times – but it’s so worth showing again. Amazingly detailed and just 1Li, for free – whats not to love. Use it on a sideboard or dresser, and it gives instant appeal.

Then I found a pack of three dressers by Nostalgia, you get three versions, black, walnut and white – 6Li each, and zero cost. I really love woody things in my home – they make everything super cosy. The chair is from Old World, 2Li with 2 single poses and 1 couple pose, there are two versions in the box for the princely sum of $1L. (I think the difference is the colour of the blanket.) The pile of boxes is from Total Destruction, 1Li and totally free !

I’m trying to learn from Zan about decorating – she uses little things to make a room POP – I think I did ok !

Its Six o clock – group gifts and a purchase

I love gacha – you all know that. Six o clock have SO many gacha’s it would be rude not to play them ! As I was heading into the store I noticed a few group gifts – join fee of just $25L and they were mine. The pink unit with plates inside is an unbelievable 3Li, the tea set is 1Li per piece – cracking stuff.

The I nabbed this sweet little wooden tree – I’ll have to think of something to do with it as its dead cute.

Then drum rolllllll please – I spied something that made my miserly heart go pitty patter – I adore lamps ! Especially when you get three in the set and they are just 2Li each ! They even light up when touched – I actually could’ve spent a small fortune in this store but left pronto as I’m pretty broke-assed as usual. Gifts are as you enter then take a mooch around it’s a huge place with plenty to see.

Making use !

Oh you’re gonna love this, maybe as much as I do – dunno. I failed to see this gacha machine by Lunar Seasonal Design when I visited The Garage Fair last week – blimey , not like me to walk by a gacha machine without giving it a whirl is it. Anyyyhoo low land impact and maximum cuteness, these little gardens are fabulous!

 

They all have ground attached, that is menu driven so you can choose something that fits in with your plot. You can also change the water-colour, leaves, and flowers ! $50L a pop – btw the event has a centralised landing point, so when you land, open up your map and follow the red circle to the machine – it’s a big event !
