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 !

Sweet Memories

Bubblez FREE musical bicycle and  Vika outfit - shoes,dress,hair bow & umbrella

Got a few things to tell you about that you really shouldn’t let pass you by. Miss Milo has been feverishly beavering away on a new sooper pretty location for a Bubblez Store. As you’d expect it’s ever so lovely, and to celebrate there is this gorgeous musical bicycle on the lucky board. Its 6 prims and plays a heavenly music box tune when you touch the words “Love is”. Also new out is the Vika outfit, charming mesh sundress in black and white, with a spotty bow at the neck, you also get a hair bow & shoes to match and an umbrella to protect you from those sharp summer showers !

Bubblez FREE skybox

I also picked up this rather scrummy sky box as a gift. The rezzing method is a bit different than usual, so pay attention ! The rez box, when touched, produces four other boxes. Each box rezzes its own part of the build. This means you don’t have to have the whole thing out, you can pick and choose which parts you want – clever huh? Outside is a little bank of grass, complete with butterflies that gently dance about. Inside is brilliant white, fresh and cool for this time of year. The walls are decorated with a stylish design, there’s a “bunker” which is a platform for a bed or couch, and underneath a space for utilising as a study. On one window there are side blinds, the other sheer white drapes hang lazily down – perhaps they are waiting for a soft breath of air to make them flutter?. While you’re there don’t forget to collect the darling set of dragonflies that s out as a gift too – they are such slippery lil suckers I couldn’t catch them to take a photo! Thanks Milo ❤

High in the sky.

nothin

I did a lovely Dollarbie house from Harmoni (still available) but I had also noticed that xMIKEx Static also has some great looking skydomes in their Marketplace shop and being a sucker for an easy to use backdrop/scene setting/workbox etc I decided to splash some cash and get one.  This is Grass Bubble one but there is a sandy one or still hankering for snow then a snow setting one.  I’m so impressed with this I’m trying to resist getting the others.treee

Sometimes when I see a home on the land and the surrounding area is horrible I always wonder why they don’t rezz themselves a skydome just like this and place their homes in there.  A perfect little setting.  This one comes with a certain amount of plants and rocks but the whole thing is editable so you can add and remove to your heart’s content.  You can even mod the texturing but I’ve not tried that yet however since this is copy then even if, when, I screw it up I’ve still got my original copy.  Comes with 7 (I think because I’ve forgotten) skies textures but no land ones.  This sky setting is by far my fav but it has a couple of night settings, sunset, sunrise, weird etc  I’ve taken all the pictures in the same Nams optimal Skin and Prim settings (Touche eclait for SL).

Costs 249 and although you can’t see it in an in world shop if you want to check it out then pop over to our sim, the LM given will take you to the cafe automatically but you can either TP again or simply fly up to my skyplatform to check it out.

Then I popped over to the Garden Gacha event and won a RARE!!! and a bunnie pose and some handy suitcase.  Will confess I had my fingers crossed when I played the Eternal Dream Cacha (50Lds) because I wanted this pose which comes with the bunny and carrot fishing rod so when I won it (it’s not the rare one) I was very pleased.

suit

Wasn’t bothered winning the rare one of these either because ALL of these cute suitcases look cute, not saying the rare one wouldn’t have been nice but more than happy with this (70Lds a play).

pag

This is the rare item. Comes from the rojo Gacha and at 50Lds a play I played it a few times and won this a lam, coffee table set and curtains all matching to make a lovely outdoor setting.

I zoomed back not even as far as I could to give you a better idea of the sky dome which is  75x75x75 in size.  Perfect for a big or small house but you may want to check out the foot print first.  As I’ve said if you want to check this out inworld then TP to our sim and then fly or tp again.

Put your running shoes on..

………and rush to Pilot because as a Happy Birthday pressie they have reduced the price of everything by 50% so if there is something you really wanted but just couldn’t afford or you are a Pilot addict and can’t get enough of them then this is the time to treat yourself but be QUICK because sadly this is only for this weekend which is why I’m getting this post out as quick as poss.

DollieAnd yes I caved in and bought  a new skyhome called Trautmann Skybox(I have no shame) but at 375Lds (will check next time I’m inworld) and only a tiny 20 PRIMS (I know it’s really IL) but honestly how could I not buy it.  2 rooms separated by doors that remain open until you click and shut them (which is a feature I LOVE) but there is a distinctive 3 areas because the main room has little steps leading up to a raised area.  OK pictures will show that better than I’m explaining.

New HomeThis is the view from the separate room the whole skyhome is pretty spacious with those large picture windows and the backdrop of tree’s.

New home2This is the view from the raised area and although you can’t see them if you look at the floor then you can see that the living area is a lighter shade than the raised area and there is steps down.

New home 3A better picture of what I’m trying to explain. This is also a more than reasonable side for a kitchen, study area whatever your hearts desire but check out the ceiling. Beams in the living area and a skylight in the raised and again all of this for only a land impact of 20! Amazing. But then again Pilot is well-known for seriously low primmed items.

Zoom back to the first picture and check out the dress.  I’m sort of rushing this post to let as many people get the chance to pop into Pilot and treat themselves but this dress is from my fav shop Dollie and yet again she’s given us an outstanding FREEBIE.  Mesh of course, a simple tube dress but with a dramatic slash back and that thick frill.  I have so many “dollie” outfits now so to get something as good as this for free is the icing on the cake.  Although if you haven’t by now join her group (free I believe) and grab the Group Gifts.  You don’t like the colour? don’t worry because she has 5 shades of this dress out in her shop all you have to do is find the 5 hidden treasure boxes click and type in the answer to the question.  Now don’t panic because she gives you those answers on her Facebook Page (and you don’t even have to “like” her unless you want to).

Pilot Marketplace (discount not offered but a chance to see what you can get when you’re in world just divide the price and that’s how much it will cost)

Hoarder

Barnesworth Anubis - mesh Paris sky lotd NEW!

I confess…I have a problem. The thing is….I hoard *sigh*. Life would be sooo much simpler if Barnesworth Anubis stopped making such sumptuous homes ! Everrry time he makes something for collabor88, I dash over, my heart actually races as I make my way through the crowd, and then I see the latest build. Never disappoints, and I just can NOT leave without buying it. When you see something so beautiful, and well made that it makes you smile big and your heart ache…should you deny yourself? Nu uh..and especially at the collabor88 price of 288L …it almost seems wrong to get SO much for SO little doesn’t it?

Barnesworth Anubis - NEW! Paris Sky Loft mesh

Sooo anyway, less ramble from me, more info for you. This month Barnes has made a mesh skyloft, it’s called Paris. I really can’t wait for you to go see it, because I know you’re going to have that heart-squeeze moment when you get up close and personal . Whats extra specially lovely about this, is you not only get the skyloft, which is gorgeous, but you also get a 3D surround. You see these houses over the way? Thats the scenic surround…its really low prim and so effective, makes you feel like you’re living in a central Parisienne inner street. You also get two versions … one as above with rain lashing down outside…and one without. The herb pots are my own, but in the non-rainy one are some lovely unlinked window boxes filled with pansies. You can use those with either version, only 2 prims !

Barnesworth Anubis - for collabor88

Not only good looking on the inside, but check out the rooftops. Superb skylight above the main living area, and one more over the bedroom. The texturing and finish is delicious…I mean really…when I gawk at a window for that long, its gotta be something special !

BA - Mesh Paris skyloft

There is the airy living area that’s central, one tiled space that’s perfect for a kitchenette, the bedroom section, and a door that leads to a tile space for a bathroom. Above I’m standing in what Id use as a bedroom space…great size, with heaps of light given by the window in the ceiling. There are so many scrummy little touches in this build, I could take a heap of photos and ramble on for hours…best thing to do is to get yourself over to collabor88 and tp up to the demo. You’ll be surprised to learn that this build is only 31 prims, if you use the surrounds and decor just 64. Ohhhhh, don’t forget to play with the porthole windows, they open and close !

Land & Sea

The reason I’ve made the “and” more pronounced is because at this prim count you too could have a home on your land and your sky.

I remember having flat basic building platforms that had more prims than this sweetie.  A lowly 8(4) prim count for all of this.

Big picture window so make sure you rezz it when you can capture an amazing sunset/sunrise.

Look at the texturing.  None of that ugly free wood plank look.  Perfectly in proportion to the average AV.

Apart from the open window this is the only feature in this home and the rest is a blank canvas.I’ve not used windlight at all just the normal environmental settings and you can see how gorgeous the texturing is.  Hop on the grey office chair and TP to the rezzed demo and you too will be able to see that this is a great offer. A small shop on an excellent shopping sim.  They have a couple of weird things, Flying Toast carpet, some really good and low prim wall decorations and for those with Brats, I mean kiddies, or those who are a child at heart a Dino Gatcha that gives you a rather good childs rocker but the best is this Mesh skyhome called Camelot and it’s only 8(4)prims and 50Lds!

With such a low prim skybox you can have a home on your land as well. This is a Dollarbie from Kukuvaya and it’s top quality.  Box is just inside the entrance on the floor.

A simple square but with gorgeous feature windows and a lovely porch area. 48 Prims in total but this is a sold well textured home.  Small and compacy with excellent scenic windows.

I’m in pain because I so desperately want at least 2 of these to be my new home.  This lady has managed to combine compact, cosy, snug, wallpaper, old fashioned  with open windows, clean-cut well textured and just plain homely livable homes.  Sometimes you want the view outside to be hidden and sometimes you want to bring the outside inside but still have a snug and private feel to indoors and she has managed it beautifully.  I’ve seen many homes in SL and I put these ones easily in my top 3 for prims, price, texturing and esp the windows and decor.  But of course this is only my opinion.  Fortunately she has a fully stocked rezzer for you to have a try.  She’s got land home, skyhomes (more than just a square box) pavilions and other smaller structures.

This isn’t a picture of the Dollarbie but just an example of the attention to detail.  This is a small Box room in one of her homes perfect for a shower room or in my case a craft room and even this small room has been given plenty of wall space and yet look at those windows such a good clear view of outside.

The BagLady Gets It (SAH Hunt Item)

The minute I rezzed this sky box (or land) I know that Tattoodiva Jules aka “baglady” understands that everyone needs to find their inner peace.  With this in mind she’s created this enclosed creative, artistic and physical room.  In one corner we have the potting wheel and I love the slumped over pose, it looks like you’re just enjoying the moment.  In the other corner is an excercise mat with some moves that I do in RL (crunch with a twist, it’s a killer).  One wall is devoted to painting and the other is a bookcase.

A whole set of poses inc a floating meditation one means that whatever you need to be able to switch off from the daily grind is catered for.
BagLady Design is a bit of a hodgepodge of shops and space but take a while and have a good look there is some brilliant items in there and all reasonably priced but if your poor or penny-pinching she always seems to have so many hunt items out and knowing how bad some people are at hunting and therefore take no joy in it she keeps them all in the same place and all on show just follow the pink arrow to the Hunters Deck.
