Time To Garden

Wow Wow and more WOW.  I loved my greenhouse, loved it details and charm and texturing but wasn’t too keen on its prims (I’m such a prim biatch). The WOW is the fact that I’ve managed to replace the greenhouse I had AND fully furnish it with amazing plants and all at either free or cut price.

EoD does it again (that’s End of Daze).  This lovely basic, rustic greenhouse has enough details to make it attractive to look at without eating up your prims (10 prims).  The glass is slightly glazed and I love the slatted wood  floor.  Because you don’t just get the greenhouse you also get the work benches that you can see just inside (3 prims) and also some starter plants (2-4Prims), wood pile (3 prims) and the 2 tools (2 Prims each) out front this also come in a handy rezzer so no fiddling either and since items aren’t linked you want to free up even more prims then just remove a few items although they’re hardly prim eaters.  I’ve also included in this photo the amazingly small primmed herb pots from a previous post. This is one of the amazing The Birds And The Bee’s Hunt items, (each item seems to be priced at 45Lds)  I’m not going to tell you where the little bird is because I want you to have a good look around EoD as it is stuffed with clean cut, well textured unfussy retro modern furniture which I have blogged before and as soon as I’ve set it up you will also see their latest offering of a tea set and trolley.

This potting table isn’t included in the EoD greenhouse and in fact is an excellent FREEBIE from Vespertine. I know this shop well as I have some of their skyboxes which have been well used by both Faith and myself as backgrounds for photos but of course for most people they would make small/perfect/prim light/well textured atmospheric cosy homes. Downstairs are the chairs, tables, wall decor all with a lovely touch of uniqueness and upstairs is the skyhomes.

Amélie (amelie.knelstrom) has been so kind as to set up a lovely large cafe and landscaped her sim so lovely subtle and relaxing for all to use.  If your not in the market for a home or home stuff but just want a calm place to visit this is the place to go.

Both Faith and I went to The Liaison Collaborative and drooled over the lovely “English Garden Party” themed items and we both went shopping.  I snagged these Hollyhocks from BA (Barnesworth Anubis).

Perga 4Normally I usually use only the one light setting which is Nams skin and prim setting but since I can use windlight and I love it all the previous pictures were taken with a windlight setting but since I know not everyone can or wants to so I’ve taken this photo to show you the beauty of this Hollyhock in normal SL midday light.  Because this is mesh this is one seamless beautifully coloured plant.  The kicker is this is ONLY 1 PRIM! Then the icing on the cake is that the pack costs only 123Lds and for that you get 4 different shaped plants and 5 different colour choices and copyably.  You could fill a whole garden with these beauties for those prims.

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.

Flower Power

Lavender Turns out both Faith and I were looking forward to this Lavender Hill Hunt but since she had joined the group before me I graciously backed down…apart from this hair.  I do have a liking for coloured hair, I think that if you’re in a dressed down mode then slap on a coloured wig and you still look a bit different from the rest.  The hair comes from Mina and once I’ve put my clothes back on I’m off there for a good look.

Mina’s  has a bit of everything. Hair, mens hair, shoes, hats, skin, eyes and I have to say that even if your not interested in the Hunt item still pop over because I loved the colour/pattern changing Beanie so much so I bought it and at a 100Lds for a choice of 9 colours/texturing a good item to have. Don’t forget to snag the gift bag on the counter as well, I’ve not had a chance to unpack it but it says “Fatpack” so it’s going to have a few colours in it for sure.

Now check out the flowers!  When trying to think of how to show off this hair I popped onto the Marketplace and typed in Lavender and almost the first hit was “Free For All” a shop owned by Ima Flanagan and yup everything is free (apart from the rentals which I will be having a peek at soon just out of curiosity).  Although they’re seriously low in prims, 1-2 prims, they’re pretty dense which makes them perfect space fillers.  A great choice such as  Mulberry bush, Lavender Thicket, Grass Thicket, Black Eyed Susan thicket etc etc and even some buildings.  Sadly most aren’t copy so I’ve shamelessly logged into MP and I’ve snagged myself dozens of them because after all they’re “FREE FOR ALL”.  These items can only be found on the Marketplace but if your in the Marketplace for a home then check out her rentals.

Free Pain

Meandering around SL like I do I came across this shop and I was stuck.  Stuck because I couldn’t for the life of me decide on which outfit to buy to showcase it’s serious sexy clothes but just as I decided to go away and come back another day my eyes fell upon a FREEBIE. For some strange reason it’s titled “Tiny Giftbox” which it most certainly isn’t because not only does it contain a great detailed (non mesh) corset with prim ruffles but also a great looking boa and an even better pair of black shoes with black rose details and each item on it’s own is shop quality. If this is the quality of the Freebie then I’d will be happy spending my Lindens there when I can work out which outfit I want.
OH I’ve just popped back to the shop and just at the front door is a sign is a special offer of 75Lds off anything (min purchase of 50Lds) so go BUY and fill out the notecard and wooo hoo I’m shopping now!

Close up on my PAIN! I love Cameo’s I also love A:S:S.  That’s the name of the shop 🙂 Honestly.  Ass is for the 3 sexes men, woman and who cares.  Mainly mens clothes with a fair selection of Unisexed clothes for people who care about how they look but also like to push their look that little bit more.  So you can pick up a great pair of jeans and a shirt or a mans full length kilt or if your really daring then a fur bolero for man or woman.

And then I saw this cameo and although the photo doesn’t do it justice it has a 166 prims worth of detail. The silver is cool and cold and the raised cameo has a depth and solid look to it and of course the wicked hooks that attach it to your chest.  Don’t worry if that’s not your thing the red layer comes in all clothes layers so you don’t have to wear it so it doesn’t look so “kinked”,  186 Lds and make sure you chose the right sex as most items come in Female or Male choices.

OK lets talk about men and make up and some men really really not only need it but look great with it and this is the place to get it.  Eye shadows, eye liners, lipstick for men and women and it’s GREAT.  My absolute favourite is the Drama Shadow.  A band of colour across the eyes and forehead.  Shaded and lovely colours and so dramatic.  Men be brave and go for it! 20Lds buys you a single colour and at a 100Lds for a fatpack of 20 colours and you might just love how it changes your whole look.

A small enclosed and private shopping mall and although there is an easy TP to use you only really need to use to get to the Skybox platform.  These sky homes are so good and so reasonably priced I have 9 of them in my Inventory. Priced from as little as 1Ld (Group Gift) to just a couple of hundred Lds.  Great attention to textures makes even the simplest of layouts look so much more.
