Outside chores (free hunt gift & free hair)

gacha garden & FREE Basta outfit_003

I’ve been a little busy tidying up my garden at home ready for Winter, hence here I am in SL replicating it as usual! I headed over to the Gacha Garden event today to take a chance on some Analog Dog hair – only $50 a pop and thankfully after three goes I landed the rare light blondes yay! If anyone wants light reds or dark browns I’ve left them out at the cafe on our sim Dreamworks – you’re welcome to them for free as I would never wear them. My outfit is courtesy of Basta, its their gift in the Dirty Turkey hunt. The hints can be found on the blog website listed below – it took me an age to find this prize but I REALLY liked it ! Mesh skirt and sweater with a fancy bow at the waist, all sizes included.

update: The hair is gone, so glad someone is gonna get some use out of it !

Basta!

Humpfh n Junk.

The “humpfh” is the SL lag I was suffering from as I was trying to take pictures of my new treats.   I popped over to Junk and treated myself to a great Barber chair and an upcycled table/lamp and then I stumbled on her SALE items and went crazy.  OK not that crazy but at the prices she’s slashed them to you can afford it.

light

Because the lag was bad I decided that instead of setting them out in my home as I intend to do, I rezzed a retro style house and placed them out.  Loving not only the texturing but the details on this “milo cabinet”.  Not only is it only 50Lds in price but only a single prim!!  You have to see it inworld to really appreciate the details, the sloped back and the books inside etc but also the other colour options she has set out.

dress

The chair is also a Junk item but since when I relogged in Lag Hell was over I decided to take another piccie of that and just use this sky home as a retro back ground for my new FREE dress.  The style is now quite common but the satin sheen of the fabric and the folds at the neck and the scooped back are very natural looking.  A sign of quality.  A TDTH find (the dirty turkey hunt) item from ECRU.

chair

This is a real statement chair in the  picture above this one you can see the cushion textures better, there is also a choice in the shop,  and in this photo you can see one of the great poses.  Tab Tatham doesn’t stint on the poses in her furniture and thats what makes the difference between a great piece of furniture and a greater piece of furniture.  One you like to look at and the other you like to look at and USE.  The poses aren’t rigid static but have gentle smooth AO’s to them. Only 4 prims and 75Lds for this statement chair.

urbdusk

Again another bargain, a classic magazine stand with the jug of flowers and only 50lds.and only 4 prims,  again a choice of colours in the shop.  I also picked up some 25Ld rugs as well and I’m using one of them in this picture.

A whole mix of stuff in Junk’s sale from simple rugs to chairs, tables etc so even if you’re not after what I’ve shown you

Special mention to the lamp.  It’s a permanent fixture in my home now no matter what style my home is in I just love this lamp and what I love even more, apart from the low price, 15Lds and low prims 2, it actually lights a room up.  This is in the inworld shop but not the Marketplace one and from what I can see there is stuff in the shop but not in the Marketplace one and visa versa so you need to check both out.  Going to be buying myself that “The Witches Hovel” as soon as I can.

Baggy Turkey

Yes indeed, as foretold by Faith, here I am showing the male version of Argyle Anonymous’ Dirty Turkey Hunt gift: the baggy sweater.

This is so lovely, it reminds me of the big, loose and oh so comfortable sweaters I love wrapping myself up on those cold days (how I miss them already!). The sculpted upper and lower sleeve parts add to the baggy effect, as does the body attachment. The texture is also fantastic, you can see just how warm this is and the forest green colour is gorgeous. The baggy sweater also comes with a shirt collar you can add on to wear beneath or you can go without it, either way looks awesome.

As Faith also mentioned, this will take some looking to find, but with some patience I’m sure you’ll get it and it is most definitely worth snapping up while you can.
