I think I’ve found my new home.(Freebie).

I sat my skinny AV ass down determined to work through a whole load of gifts from an event long, long over now and came across a stunning backdrop from a shop called Varonis. No this isn’t my new home the details are in the last part of this post.

This is the new Group Gift from Varonis and yes it’s FREE.

I know that for many people a backdrop isn’t really a useful thing and that’s why even though you may never use one I say you really have to admire the quality.  This room is pretty big it’s more warehouse-size which means that if you do take pictures you will have no issues getting great angles.

As you can see there is a doorway which leads onto a small corridor with totally different colours and again another photo opportunity.

All of these pictures have just been taken in my sim setting so you can really see the quality in the lighting and use of textures to create such great and workable backdrops.

There is a small selection of clothing but really this shop is backdrops AND builds which is how I’ve found my new summer home.  For the first time in years, I think I will be living in the sky because if you check out the Lueur skybox demo you too will find your jaw-dropping at the stunning texturing/lights, price and prims! This skybox reminds me of one I already own and yet if I placed them side by side the older one will look so much chunkier and dated which in all fairness it is since I’ve had it for XXX amount of years.  So at some stage, I think I will rezz myself a little hut or I did pick up an 88Ld caravan from Collab88 and live in the sky for spring and summer.

Slightly disapointed, NOT.(Freebie & Cheapies).

The one thing I try to do when grabbing freebies is to check out the shop they came from and I’m going to have to mention the “The Liaison Collaborative” again because this is where this freebie gift of decorative scattering of leaves and sparkles came from.

Gorgeous and only 1 prim for each big patch and I think in the end I had to rezz just 3 of them to cover the front of my house.

PS. That pram doesn’t contain a baby it has something even better…a sleeping cat in it.

Once done I TPed over to the shop who had donated this gift to the Liaison Collaborate event and it turns out SynCo is mainly a jewellery shop.  There are some nice pieces inc a delicate snowflake set but you know I don’t do jewellery.  So I almost left till I spotted that the Group Gifts do include 2 skyboxes and 1 prop box.

Taken just in my sim setting and all that stuff you see through the feature window are the trees on my land so you can see that you get a clear and unobstructed view through them.

This is the same design as the first but in a more Sci-Fi style.  Both boxes are big, big enough to really create a home inside and ONLY 3PRIMS!  Again if you want an SL home for Christmas you can rent one of the smallest plots with low prims really cheaply, rezz one of these and still have plenty of prims to decor it to your hearts content.

I’m not showing you the prop room, it’s a cube with cubes in it.  A nice hud to allow you to change the colour of the walls and the cubes.

The SynCo Group only costs only 13Lds to join and there are other GG’s inc earrings and a choker.

Can you blame me? (Freebies).

These trainers/sneakers from Vale Koer are just so good they deserve to be blogged and reblogged until every AV has them.

I remember when I first grabbed these how pleased I was because these are in a male clothing shop and it’s not actually clear that you don’t only get all the male fits BUT also all the women’s fits.  I think these are examples that before you bin anything to open it just to make sure.

This is the second pair of trainers and you can just see the amazing attention to details and both pairs of shoes come with damned big colour huds.

Vale Koer is a shop packed with classy, hip and sporty male clothing.  I swear if I still used my male AV I’d be treating myself to clothes from this shop.

I’m (not) sorry but I do judge male AVs and when you see a Cheap Assed Gorilla Man in some basic wear you know they’re only SLing for one thing.  Just as much as I judge Gorilla Man when I see someone who has spent a few Lindens and time and effort to make their AV look good I judge them in a much more positive way…I still wouldn’t “scr*w” them though lol.

As I was looking around I spotted near to the gifts TPs to 3 builds, skyboxes which have been created with unfussy, manly mancaves. I love them, as much as I like Froo Froo and clutter I also admire clean lines and quality.  So you will find the Group Gifts inside the shop on the shelves near to the customer desk and the TPs to the skyboxes are there as well.

PS.  Only 6 prims rezzed, I didn’t check the other shoes prims.

Get Fruity (Hunt&Cheapo)

boost

Confession, I did boost the colours in this picture because I just wanted to have a bit of fun.  Did a bit more of The Fruit Salad Hunt and I deliberately went for the shoes, dress and picnic table to use in my new sky boxes.  I won’t give the LM to each shop involved in the hunt because there is a very much appreciated list of Surls and Pictures of the prizes so like me you can pick and chose.

SkydomeI took a risk on these sky boxes because they come from a shop called Wee Ones which looks as though it caters to the Pixies in SL, however these sky boxes are equally as good for us full-sized AVs.

Skydome2

This is the second sky box I bought from Wee Ones but there are more of offer for a Wee price, yes I had to make that joke, of only 30Lds.  The top one is called The Secret Garden and the bottom one is The Rabbit Hole Sky box.

Skydome3

I zoomed outside so you can see that even on the outside of the sky box the texturing is really charming.  These only cost 30Lds each which is why I took the risk that they weren’t for Petites.

Wee Ones, as I’ve said, looks as though it caters to the Petites and you can pick up everything from make up and clothes to wings and knives and I did notice a whole wall of stuff for only 5Lds.

The Fruit Salad Hunt, Surls and pictures.

Shhh!!!

I’m not even sure how I ended up here but what a brilliant place this is for those of us who don’t have land to rezz props and poses or the funds to buy them then this is a stunning find.

Cubes

Kay Weston has been amazingly generous in that she has studios set out packed with props and poses.

guilty

Not only props and poses for singles but also groups and families (and the guilty).

wanted

Each studio has a simple to use rezzer and each packed with stuff.

Beach

But check out the TP because that too is full of sky boxes set out as full scenes.

haunted

Look what I found in one of the sky box! I remember this house from a previous Halloween and sadly because of its massive prim count only someone with a sim or in this case can have one of these.  I’ve taken this at the foot of the hill and zoomed right out because this is a massive build that you can walk up the hill to and use the house for many a scary picture.

green

Squeezes in a last shot because not only do you have studios and sky boxes but walk out of the studio area and on the land you yet again have beautifully stages settings out for you.

So what do you have to do, apart from follow the link, to use all of this? simply join  her FREE group image Essential and start posing. However please find it in your heart to make a donation.  Although Kay has a pose and prop shop (which you can treat yourself to some of her very reasonably priced poses, and plenty of males ones) you can never count on selling enough to cover the tier fee and when someone has spent so much time, money and imagination and then allowing everyone to use it for free is pretty damned generous so if you can, and there is a message sent out every so often to remind you, make a donation.  She may never get enough donations to cover the tier fee but at least it’s a sign that you really appreciate all of this but of course this is all for everyone’s use no matter how rich or poor so don’t let lack of Lindens put you off coming here.

Room With A View.

With the 2 very large picture windows and the glass around the door this is a very spacious looking and yet compact in size, price and prims skyhome.

D4I’m using a windlight setting to show off that even the windows have light polka  dots on them.  Lovely atmospheric texturing.

D4 DoorAlthough this is a small skybox with the 2 large picture windows and the glass around the door it seems more spacious.  It’s a Gatcha and OMG only 10Lds!  They actually have a small selection of skyboxes with cute interesting texturing and all not only low primed but also low-priced.  A few at 10, 40, 70 and a choccie skybox for a 100Lds.

D4 BenchThis picture was taken in normal SL light so you can see that even without windlight the colours and texturing are great as so is the amazingly shabby chic Victorian ladder. With its padded cushion and scrap of fabric draped over you wouldn’t expect this to be as low as it is, only 3 prims and 25Lds.  Capriccio is a small shop which is a shame as it has such lovely items for such a good price I’d love more. Special mention to the old-fashioned wash stand, the beams of lights (which I did buy) and the make it yourself poster kit.

Funny Farm

A whole new freaky/fairy/fantasy in a rezzer.

ScanSL was Lag Hell so decided to Marketplace surf and when I spotted this at first I didn’t believe that for a basic 100Lds you could get so much for so little!  Love being proven wrong.

Scan1A fairy fantasy land, or whatever floats your boat LOL.  Thank goodness this comes in a rezzer because if you had to unpack it all you would give up but one click of the rezzer and it’s all there for you.  Rainbow, clouds, fields, animal pens, swing, house, flowers and on and on.

Scan11A lovely hobbit type tree house and I did notice the swing has an adult menu in it but I didn’t try that out…HONEST!

Scan1111This is one of the animal homes in the pens.  Big enough for a grown AV to sulk in.

Scan11111You can see from where I am that this home is roomy enough to take all the furniture you will need, as if you won’t be spending all your time outside in the wonderful farm.

Scan6Last photo and this is the money shot.  Taken at midday so you can see that even if you can’t or don’t like Windlight this is still a vivid and imaginative place to live. When you’re on the ground your surrounded by hills and plants and feel nestled inside your own farm.  A big 164 Prims and as you can see it’s a lot of land but it’s still perfect even for those on a prim limit because you need to add so little to this to make it your fantasy farm. A few basic bits of furniture and a few fluffy animals and you’re good to go. Fortunately you don’t have to take my word for it because you will see on the MP shop lots of people have left glowing reviews of not only this but  other sky homes/farms.

Get used to this place and the other skyhomes, farms and boxes that I am just about to buy because I can see myself using these a lot for my photos.
