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 !

Im living in a box – FREE home!

Gawd flash back song lol However you really can live in a box – a gift box – all tied up with a ribbon & bow (various colours to choose from). Vitamin have this fantastic and unusual home on the market place for free. I’m always curious to take a peek at homes, and if its free, why not? This turned out to be a hidden gem – Little bit on the primmy side, but it is mod and you can ditch a few things such as the interior drapes, add a teleport between floors and remove the stairs etc etc.

I loved the interior, beautiful textures used and upstairs you get a menu for window views – this is “panorama” – lovely! All windows have flexi drapes the open and close , there is even a little balcony to sun yourself on – brilliant !

Cheap and Cheaper.

I am a house hoarder.  Houses and skyboxes are what I waste my Lindens on (as well as plants, gardens, furniture etc) so I maybe a Cheap B* when it comes to clothes but it means I have the money to add to my hoard.

Normally I wait for events such as The Arcade or FLF(Fifty Linden Friday) or Collab88 where you can find amazing bargains esp from shops such as Trompe Loeil but I decided to check out the main shop to see if there are any gifties and there wasn’t but it wasn’t such a loss in the end esp if you’re willing to spend a few Lindens.

First is this Gacha win.

This is an old Gacha from a previous event but it’s now outside the main shop with some other Gachas and if you’ve never seen it before or forgot about it and need a small and yet perfectly formed home for ONLY 25Lds you cannot beat this.  There is also a model rezzed out next to the Gacha as well so you can check it out.

A “Shotgun” shack is usually a small single room and the reason it’s called “shotgun” is if I remember correctly you can shoot a gun through one door and it goes right through and out the back door.

Inside the main shop there aren’t any Freebies for Group VIP Members, or at least I didn’t see them. What there are is some discounted items, 2 builds and 2 items of furniture and it was this sky house that was the “Woah” for me.

You get 3 rooms in total all large and open, each has a fireplace and windows etc if I remember correctly 2 are identical and the 3rd is slightly different which just breaks up the monotony if there is any because these pictures were taken in my sim setting so you can see the texturing and details which go to make a classy design.

Big spacious rooms with lots of detailed windows and even a window type nook.

And if you join the Free VIP Group and this amazing skybox is just half priced at 250Lds.

As you can see outside is a snowy dark wintery scene but don’t worry as you get 2 versions, the skybox with or without the surround and a surround on its own.  A couple of extra’s is also blazing log fires for the fireplaces or a row of lit candles.

Like the Shotgun Shack there is a demo out for this build as well, above the desk in the entrance is the TPs so go to the “old builds” and you will be able to rezz yourself a demo for a good look at but don’t buy it from the rezzer, TP back to the main shop and this as well as the other Group Discounted items are on the wall behind the reception desk.

PS Can’t remember the exact primmage but it was under 50 for the shack and without the backdrop just under 100 for the sky box and with the back drop just over 100.

PPS I’m hoping the LMs take you near to the marks but I have a feeling the LM is preset by the sim and you will have to look around to find the main shop but it’s really easy.

What a mug! (Bargains).

I’ve had a lovely day today and a lovely touch inworld was picking up some super bargain.  Firstly this very pink candy box sky box.  SaNaRae is the event but it’s on the Anachron stand where you will find it.  At only 100Lds for me it’s a very handy little backdrop for when I want to show you girly/kawaii stuff but for you just imagine it stuffed with a Princess bed, rugs and throws, pillows and pouffes and of course FURBABIES! the sort that don’t do protest poo’s in your bag, yes mine did, cough up phantom hairballs, scratch your furniture, chew you book and how at their fellow creatures of the night at 4 friggen AM!

Sorry I got distracted, I’ve forgotten the prim count but it was in the 40ties and under the 50ties but there is a TP to the demo so you can check it out for yourself.

XXXMuguse3

As I said this is a skybox and so there isn’t a door not even a fake one but there is these lovely windows which you can look out of but the outside of this sky box does look like a “candy box” and the window are invisible.

Even if you’re not interested in this item there is a whole mix of clothes, poses, house and garden stuff all set on a stunning platform in the sky.

XXXMuguse

The other bargains turned out to be even cheaper because at imbue there is a small selection of Gacha’s and even though I thought I was Gacha’d (Sic) out, at 10Lds a go I gave it a go and I won myself this pretty dress a mug and an embroidery hoops with a little embroidered picture in it(not the hair bow or glasses just in case you think they’re there).  I’m so pleaded with the mug, I am using the pose it comes with and it has a pretty reasonable drinking movement, because of the writing on the front which says “I think you are succulent” and I grow Succulents in RL, mainly because everything I plant that is supposed to flower never flowers so I’ve given up and grow succulents and lots of “green” stuff.

This and that

Scarlet Creative & Aphrodite NEW!

Its Saturrrrday! Or should I sat Caturday – as my kitty cat decided I had enough sleep and to wake me up at 4am . Anywhoooo I have some glorious stuff to share and who can sleep when Scarlet Creative is in the newest Luxe Box?! This is ” Alaouite Skybox”  – funny thing is, for absolutely years I’ve searched for a build like this – and wow , voila! It’s a bit Grecian, a tad roman but a whole lotta beautiful going on. It’s in this months Luxe Box – which in my opinion makes the $1500 price tag for the box well worth it all on its own.

Scarlet Creative Luxe Box NEW!

You could use this as a retreat in the sky, a role play area, a space / back drop for photos, endless possibilities really. Rooms are spaced around an open to the sky courtyard and pool. The pool has poses built right in for singles and couples (really lovely ones to boot).

Scarlet Creative NEW For Luxe Box

If you walk around the rooms, you will find so many beautiful details and textures have been used – honestly its crazy delicious. My mouth was watering when I spotted the different types of plaster and tiles…y.e.s textures turn me on – weird hah!

Scarlet Creative - details

There are tiled floors, mosaic walls and different styles to make each little space unique. Its crazy beautiful and yet very peaceful and relaxing at the same time – doesn’t make sense I know – but it is. Left hand pattern is from the dining chairs btw – isn’t it gorgy?

Scarlet Creative & Aphrodite NEW

Aphrodite have produced a vintage style dining extravaganza for the summer, its in the new round of Tres Chic – perfectly suited for a wedding or party. Cut crystal glasses, silver serving dishes and a plethora of meals, starters etc for you to dine upon. Its pretty flexible also, as you can set up for as many or as few as you wish, remove decor items to save prims.  I just thought it looked so attractive on the open courtyard of the skybox – but I can also see this set being used as a centre piece for a wedding – whacha think?

So so so above is part of a set by Finishing touches, PG or Adult versions, and I have to say the Adult one is exceptionally lovely.

At Last !

Scarlet Creative collabor88 - NEW!

I’ve been waiting for Scarlet Creative to launch a new skyhome for simply ages, tadah – here it is! This is the “Rakkaus” sky home, and it’s totally awesome. All the features I so love are right there, the peeling plaster effect, the warm wood, all those creative touches that really make a space special and “homey” and über stylish. At just 67Li and costing only $188L its a show stealer. You can grab this at the latest round of Collabor88, there is a demo I believe also.

Scarlet Creative montage

If you touch the main window in the lounge area you get a menu for the views from all the windows. Brilliant as it means this sky home isn’t just for Winter – it’s an all year round pad. Quite a few options to keep you happy and it also means you get rid of that skyhome feel of being locked away inside – you have views !

Scarlet Creative NEW!

From the main living area there are a few steps up to a railed gallery, some of the poles have fairy lights wound around them which is just so sweet. Lots and lots of windows , so the whole build seems airy and fresh.

Scarlet Creative backgrounds

Just a handful of the window view options here for you to see, the décor panel is by Circa btw. (more info about that later)

Scarlet Creative details

And of course, a little teaser of some of the little details that always thrill me – which is why you really need to get your little paws on this and make it your home. I’m considering placing one above my land home actually, as a sort of “get away”, perhaps after Christmas ! Thanks Charlotte ❤
