Cant beat this for $1L !

Dead chuffed to see a new release by The TinSmith , this “double decker loft” style apartment is just fab. At the moment its on offer for $1L – I suggest you grab it as the price will go up !

Its a low land impact high on style build. The lower floor is neatly divided into two distinct areas by means of a wall with place for a fire – or whatever you wish ! Burgundy marble would make such a lovely hearth no? Plenty of windows that give the whole space a bright airy feel. The stairs are hidden away to the rear, dark marble steps and a brilliantly decorative wall with lots of cubby holes for knick knacks. Upstairs is one large space with plenty more windows to let in the light – nothing boxy about this skybox !

Added – all builds are just $1L for a limited time on the market place store listed below

Upgrade your living space – Dollarbies

Found a new-to-me designer called The Tinsmith. Grabbed up these two gorgeous skyhomes , at just $1 why not! This home is only 20Li – let that just sink in for a moment. Yes 20Li, two floors, little reading nook, lighting, 100% mesh.

The textures are very sleek and modern and would lend to some great interior design. Light and airy fresh and bright.

In contrast is this sky home from the same designer with light wooden floors, wooden beams in the living space and 3 spacious bedrooms !

This one is only 29Li complete. The bedrooms are great sizes, or perhaps use one as a bathroom? I was mentally working out where I would place my gear as I walked round – so pretty and warm. The Tinsmith has just six homes for sale and all are $1L .

Worth it (Free)

 

For some reason I found myself at Lagom – and there were a lot of lucky boards. Decided to camp out and see what turned up, et voila. The boards roll along quite swiftly and in no time I had won this rather fab earth shaped wall light – only 1Li.

Next my letter came up for the (IMO) best prize – the converted barn sky box ! I spent the next few minutes wondering why I kept on sinking through the floor – finally fixing it by making my own transparent platform to slip underneath – if you win this and want that texture – shout and I will send it. Just 25Li and really adorable – its a keeper for moi.

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.

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 !

Dollarbie Mesh Apartment

I have to admit that while I was waiting to start my meeting earlier – I was browsing the market place on my iPhone ! I found this charming little apartment for just $1L. At 21Li it wont bust the prim budget and it’s really nicely put together. Hallway, Living space / Studio area, and a third room accessed through a door. Simple and easy to furnished for a home or studio. Keeper for me !

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 !
