Faith and I for many many years ran a rental company but sadly RL pressures meant that something had to go and it was that side of SL and yet even after all this time we still miss some of the aspects of it. So when I got a note off Pet (petunia908.pinklady) telling me that she has had the opportunity to set up a few homes part of me felt a pang of jealousy.
Honestly I only ever make mistakes on my blog when I don’t do the write up when I’m stood in the shop so I can double check and in this case I’m pretty glad I did because this is how this home looked yesterday but today it looks like…………………….
This is a perfect opportunity for those of you who are looking for a home to rent for winter or have never rented before and aren’t sure how to do it. I know that Pet is frequently in SL running her business and chatting with her friends so she isn’t going to be one of those landlords who never help you if a problem occurs (remember folks NOTES not IMs how I remember that desperate plea lol).
If you’ve never rented before it can’t be any simpler. This home is not rented because you can see that the rental box is large and noticeable, click the box and it should give you the rental details you need to know, simply how much each week, how man prims you can use and which group to join so you can rezz your possession. If those details seem reasonable to you reclick the box and pay and voila you have a home (the box should shrink, fade and move up into the sky). As an old hand at the game the prices are more than reasonable and the prim allowance is more than generous. The houses are set on one side of the sim and each also has a small beach area but she has also laid out a pictureque skating pond, seating and the cutest skating penguins ever.
Pet also has her Christmas shop open so naturally I went shopping. Not only are her items reasonably priced I love them. The very large white privacy bush is a prime example. Large beautiful and deep and yet only a single prim and 50Lds. Going to be dotting these all over the sim (copy of course). A brilliant splash of cold.
This, if I remember correctly, is also available in the main shop because I had meant to pick it up previously but forgot. A simple translucent floral picture to hang at a window to allow the light to show through. I’m so pleased that she’s also put this into her Christmas shop as although it’s not Christmassy I think it looks gorgeous there. Might shove one of her colourful Poinsettias on the windowsill later.
This isn’t wrapping paper texture this is an extreme close up of one of the shrubs called Winter poinsettia and look at that depth! This is believe it or not a 1 prim shrub. All of her shrubs even though they are single prims have a real full look to them. She has a whole selection of garden plants from the berry laidened bushes to frost covered trees and yet again so reasonably priced and copy.
Her main shop is much bigger than her Christmas shop and both inside and outside are packed so please check it out. I have put her link to the Marketplace but really you need to see these in world to really appreciate the quality.
