It’s BananaN’s!(Freebies ‘n’Dollarbies).

Not sure whats more pleasing, finding a tube of Pringles in your cupboards or some decent things on the Marketplace.

First Dollarbie are these “Mad Hatter” table sets.  You get 5 colours and each piece is only 1 prim.

These bunnies are FREE and adorable.  I put them on one of the Mad Hatter tables but I don’t think the colour contrast does them justice, they should be in pastel, froo froo bedrooms or home.  Just behind them, you will just be able to make out the delivery box which is a nice shape and a prim so for those, me, who like to use boxes as scattered decor items the delivery boxes these items come in work well for that.

And yes EDITABLE! so I’ve Took away the flowers which will make a lovely decor item on its own and you can shrink or grow the vase and of course, add your own flowers if you wish.

Yup this is as random as it gets LOL.  A little cardboard box cafe.  It doesn’t come with the little critter you see in the picture but there is a little mouse dollarbie which you should check out as well and that looks as though it will tuck inside there quite nicely.

This is an another dollarbie but worth so much more.  Washi tape/ribbon on a holder. 1 Prim.

I’m not going to show you the last dollarbie I picked up because the pictures I took of it are complete and utter rubbish but when you check out the link to the BananaN Marketplace shop you will be able to check out all the gifts/dollarbies and 10Lds offers for yourself.

PS I’ve put the link to the inworld shop from the MP shop but I’ve not checked it out yet but of course you might just want to.

I have cake & a super sim decor bargain

I got a New RL bread maker last night so today I have made 2 loaves, 1 cake and a pan of Jam, or as you Yanks say “jelly”, and since the sun has struggled out from behind the clouds I’ve been lazing like a Lady of Leisure in my garden feeding my fat face.  It goes without saying I’ve eaten too much bread and cake and now I feel bloated and sad!

I’ve mentioned the 25Ld Tues offers before, just sub to one of the shops involved in it and you should get sent out a note with the LM’s and shops involved in that weeks 25Ld Tue offer.  Most of the shops involved are more towards the RP/Rustic/Gor/Medieval SLers BUT do NOT let that put you off if this isn’t your thing.  I’ve found some excellent decor items for my sim and home and occasionally an outfit which I couldn’t resist.

I have to admit that once I get my hands on the list I quickly scan it to see if my Fav shops are in the list and this week DD (Dysfuntionality Design) were on the list so that was my first place to TP over to and check out these low primed pretty floating Chinese lanterns.

XXXHome1

You get the 5 colours shown, copyable and only 1 prim each so you can rezz as many of these as you wish.

XXXHome3

Super simple menu with them just rezz  on the ground click on it and you get 2 tabs the first is to choose how wide or how close you want the lantern to float to where you rezz it and the other to activate it and once you click that it just floats away.  Being able to choose to keep it in a restrictive area means you can rezz these even on a small plot and of course again you can rezz just the single lantern or as many as you wish.

If you’ve never been to DD (Dysfunctionality Designs) then you must go, I’m pretty sure there is some decor freebies there but it’s been a long time since I’ve checked, but go for the fruit n veg because you will find some of the best, realistic and low primed fruit n veg planting you will find in SL.  Very reasonably priced as well esp for such exc quality.

How good is this! I know that there is a quick redelivery system here at DD but as I was LM grabbing, it doesn’t take you direct to the 25Ld offer but look on the ground and there are signs that lead you right to it, but I also decided to splash out and I’ve bought some grasses, bunnie rabbits and other items for our sim inc a stunning rose-bush which comes with a colour hud etc but I’d forgotten I’d already bought it so I paid my 125Lds which is shockingly cheap for such quality and I got it returned to me!  Took me a second to realise, and check my invent, that I already own these roses and so it wouldn’t let me buy something I already own! How good is that!

I Wish!

I’m off for one of my weekend breaks this weekend but unlike my normal cottage weekender’s this is a city break and as much as I’m looking forward to it I really REALLY want to go and look at this….

follow4

The Eiffle tower of course.  I’ve been lucky enough to visit Paris twice in my life once as a child and once as a teenager but as an adult it’s still on my wish list of places to go, however my OH has been twice, he goes on cycling holidays and there’s no way I’m putting my sorry ass through all of that work, and on his last visit he not only gave me the obligatory picture of himself and his bike, posing in front of one of the most famous towers in the World he also brought back a tacky and yet beautiful Eiffle tower ornament made of glass and filled with sweeties.  It’s now standing in my kitchen filled with Balsamic Vinegar.

OK enough waffling.  These ornaments come from Follow Us and because they’re another 48 hour discount on the Marketplace I thought I’d get them in quick.  For 99Lds you get the same base colour of silver and the 3 sizes and copyable which you can see I went overboard with in this picture.  The “love” comes with a choice of colours, red, pink or blue (my fav) but they’re in separate packs.  So if you want the blue writing (my fav) then buy the blue pack etc.

Best of all and I almost missed it, I even took a load of piccies before I realised that the V and E of the word have little lights on them and if you click on them they light up.  You have 2 colours white, shown, and random.  Once I’d clicked on them all my whole room was glowing.  I took the picture in my Nams setting but all those little lights brighten and warmed up the room.

follow6

I think theses look just as good as stand alone pieces or for something as dramatic such as my mantlepiece.  I’m very much into scene setting and if I had a SL lover then for a romantic evening I’d rezz a whole load of these and a table groaning with food and of course one of the wine ladened trolleys/carts which can also be picked up from the Follow Us Marketplace shop.

Don’t worry because I always finish off my Follow Us posts with a reminder that there are a total of 35 items priced between 1-10Ls and even more 11-100Lds and they’re all brilliant quality.  You can of course for just a token 40Lds join Laurent83Waco’s inworld group and grab everything that’s out for group members.

Last minute PANIC!!!!

I just couldn’t help myself but grab these GG’s before they’re gone.  If you don’t even need any more Christmas items I’d still recommend you go grab these because I’ve still got some of last years Christmas Decor items set out because Follow Us quality stands the test of time.

follow us

A simple tray with mugs n cookies and that tree shaped tray is a lovely touch.  Only 5 prims as well and of course FREE but the Group isn’t free.  However the cost of joining the Follow Us group is only a token 40Lds which is nothing esp since Laurent not only puts out regular monthly group gifts but keep them all out for anyone no matter how late they join the group to grab.  The normal Group Gifts are in the main shop but the Christmas Gifties are in the Christmas house on your right when you TP in, look on the wall behind the staircase.

Something I also don’t point out often enough is when you’re a member you actually get a lot of monthly offers and discounts as well as the regular monthly gift so you can see why I say that the joining fee is just a mere token.  If you get tempted into buying any last-minute Deccies or gifts make sure to be wearing your Group Tag as you will get a 20% discount but only on the Christmas Decor items.

followus1

This tree is another of the Christmas GG’s. You get 2 and this is the larger version with a smaller one in the pack.  Not sure I’m going to keep it out mainly because I still have this beauty out.

treee

Yup although it’s an old piccie that lovely subtly lit tree is in my home, it’s not free but zoom in on the lovely sledge with the pressies on top.  Yup another GG and only 4 prims for that one!

Now for the “PANIC” bit but you don’t really need to.  Unlike a lot of places esp on Laurents Marketplace the items are TRANS:-).  Obviously non copy but this way you can either buy in shop and send or simply send as a Gift through the Marketplace.  He has 35 items priced between 0-10Lds and 177 items priced between 11-100Lds and there are some amazing things for both sexes, from sewing machines to desks, coffee, fruit baskets, clothes stands, garden decor, fully laden tables, party items and on and on …..and something for everyone’s pocket.

Fun stuff (Retro Freebies)

Retro

More goodies.  The dress, hair and sideboard are the freebies but also check out the wonderful heart shaped light behind me.

The dress is a The Retro Hunt item from Soulglitter a classic SL design with a classic retro texture.  I actually loved the bow so much I made a copy and used it as a hair decoration.  Sorry I haven’t really took a good picture of the hair, again a TRH item but you get 4 high gloss colours with fat curls and a scrunchy holding it all together.  A perfect compliment to a retro look.

Side

I decided to take a different snap of the the sideboard and lamp which come from Axo’s.  The sideboard is the hunt item and you get 3 sizes, large, medium and small so one for every home or every AV size.  However when I was in Axolotl Icthan shop picking up the prize I couldn’t help but notice how CHEAP her stuff is.  Some lovely trays for only 5Lds, posters, Shabby Chicness and the heart shaped lamp in the picture which lights up a room beautifully and is only 15Lds and 2 prims.  You really need to see her in world shop because then you can not only grab the free posters but also see the (I promise this will be the last time I say “retro”) retro stacked  tables and the shabby chic shelves that have a colour menu inc and everything is a such bargain prices.

1,2,3

Does this not look inviting? I have found that when someone spends time and money-making their shop/store look great then the stuff they sell will be great. This is Ice (Icewood Bayn) shop called EoD (End Of Daze) and yes I blog them a lot because I love his stuff.  Clean, uncluttered, unfussy, excellent texturing, low primmed, low price and on and on.  Less is more with his designs.

ShopThe 1,2,3 of the title is how easy it was to rezz his brand new range of kitchens.

WinFirst rezz the rezzer and as you can see it has been made idiot proof so you can simple place it where exactly you want your kitchen to fit.

Win3

Then rezz.  Because it’s clearly marked on the floor where the fronts are it just makes it easy and everything is locked into place just in case you do need to move it and then once happy one click to finish and the rezzer is removed and you end up with this.  A complete ready to go kitchen.

Comes with great single and couple poses, although as a singleton I’ve not been able to check the couples one but I am happy to assume they’re going to be just as great and a choice of colours.  The green is shown the red is more vibrant and the white is emm white.  However in SL I am almost a midget so my feet, even in my tallest heels, are still floating a bit off the floor with the poses.  I did try to find a normal sized AV(Faith is also a midget she just doesn’t admit to it) but I couldn’t.  You could if your on the small size like me slightly lower the kitchen to no ill effect on the overall appearance as there is a kickboard BUTS I’m pretty sure for you normal sized AVs this is a perfect fit.   Having said all that it’s hardly a major thing esp since the AOs are pretty smooth and cool.

win8The kitchen on its own is 17 prims and another for all the extras comes to another 10 prims. However when you stand and wash dishes the sink miraculously appear and when you use the cooker you get a pan to fry or a pot to stir.

utensilI have to show you all the accessories which are rezzed with it but are not joined so you can use them, move them or lose them but since they are so low primmed and so detailed I’d just leave them.

Utensil2Zoomed in on the close up so you can see the detail AND I’ve not blurred this picture it was take in my fav normal setting,  nams optimal skin and prim, so you can see how realistic these things look.  That knife block is only 1 prim and the scales are only 2!

I’m not sure how I’ve missed this before but if you’re a Group Member then not only do you get regular monthly group gifts but a discount on your purchase.  So make sure to wear your tag and click the prominent Group label next to everything in the shop.
