You love what you love. (Freebies).

WOW, I did not expect a brand new FREE home and decor set from Trompe Loeil as C.Edo(cory.edo) has already been amazingly generous with his gifts but I was wrong and here it is.

I have a confession to make in that I own DOZENS of Trompe Loeil homes which I’ve picked up over my SL lifetime and yet I’ve never lived in one.  Most of my homes were picked up from events and at a price tag so reasonable even though I don’t need the home I just have to buy it, yes I am a home hoarder!

This home had only 2 very large rooms.  This is the downstairs one has lovely big feature windows and an alcove area for a little kitchen.

Quality texturing. I’m always impressed when staircases are so well detailed.

The large room upstairs has these windows on all four sides which not only makes the room look even bigger but it’s just nice to be able to see out from all four sides of your home.

I think the prims for this whole build was something like 88 prims.

For those of you who don’t need/want a whole build then these chairs may be just for you.  GORGEOUS! You get the 2 sets and each set comes in a fabric or leather option and the addition of a texture hud is just great.  Love the design and love the poses.

As much as I’m loving the new Hisa range it doesn’t mean I can’t look and admire the skill and work that has gone into other designers creations so I’m happy to add this to my house hoard lol.

Freebies Part 1.

What a great start to a much colder Monday morning.

Trompe Loeil has their NEW FREE FOR ALL out and yet again another top quality build just for us.

Again as always there is as much detail on the back of this build as the front, those doors are sliding doors such a nice touch.  Can you see the seats/shelves built into the side emmm bits..not sure what to call them?

This middle staircase neatly breaks up the large lower room and although I’m not showing you there is a nice fireplace as well.

Upstairs is a very useable platform with tons of space for a bedroom and even a bath etc.

As for this chair/stool set WOW not just keepers but I’m now wondering where I can squeeze these into my home. I think the name of this style is “Modern Danish” and it’s a style I actually love in RL but have you seen the price! Never mind at least I can own this even if it’s in SL lol.  Looking at the picture of this set on Flickr it looks like you can change the colour but it doesn’t matter if you can’t as I personally love this colour.

I’ve left this lot out because the house is I think 51prims and the chair 5, stool 2 so hardly prim eating.

Warning, Warning, Boring, It’s a Reblog.(Freebie).

Can I just say that THANK YOU to anyone who drops us a note with the info on something you think we will be interested in.  Most of the time it’s something that definitely has us running to get it but sometimes we remember blogging it or didn’t blog it for some reason but it doesn’t matter because ALL “heads up” are greatly appreciated and that brings me back to “Sparks” as she’s copy and pasted some details sent out by Trompe Loeil team.

You will remember this free house from just a few posts ago and the reason I’m using again is because it’s still there, as well as a chair, but the Trompe Loeil team have come to a decision to put out regular freebies for us and I do believe that a few of them will be like this top-class house actual big builds! So it’s there now but when I log in it may have changed but I for one have now added the Trompe shop to my daily visit list as to get freebies from this shop just makes my SL day.

OH and if you’ve never rented in SL maybe this is the time to do it, even this home can be rezzed on one of the smallest plots of land leaving you with enough prims to decor inside and out.

PS.  They’re on the pillar to the right of the door entrance and both gifts are set at 0Lds.

Seriously SL!!!(Bargain).

I’ve just splurged my last 25Lds only to find I’m gonna have to splurge some more because one of our regular readers has just dropped the bomb that Trompe Loeil is having a blinking 50% SALE!  Seriously how’d I miss that…ok I know it’s because I get sent so many notices/notes etc things often slip me by which is why I truly appreciate it when people give me the heads up about something esp when it’s as good as this.  Have to say the sim is, of course, PACKED to the rafters and even worse the countdown started yesterday which means today is the LAST day to squeeze in!

So basically as I was chucking stuff out I checked out the NN Marketplace shop to see if this still had this and they do and since my copy has been eaten by my invent I just bought it.

It’s a massive spooky skybox and perfect for those who are planning a Halloween partay, me? I just open my front door and throw some sweets are the trick or treaters and tell them to “bog off” but having said that I do bake Pumpkin pies cos I love em.

Back to the build.

Although these pictures have a frame on them I haven’t edited the pictures and even in my sims Nams setting you can see they’re pretty atmospheric so if you change your windlight settings I think you will get some very interesting effects.

Comes in a rezzer or you can rez it in edit mode and there are a few extra spooky ghosts you can have flying around.  For some reason the rezzer wouldn’t derezz it, the rezzer is in the well, but although this is a really big skybox it’s all in big chunks so only took a few clicks to pack it all away.  That also means that if there are some bits of it you don’t like then you can remove or move them.  The prim count is just over 100 but this skybox is a perfect setting for a Halloween party or if your incline to the spooky side of SL a nice little home.

PS I will be stripping right down to my Alpha and TPing as soon as I can to Tromphe.

Cheap and Cheaper.

I am a house hoarder.  Houses and skyboxes are what I waste my Lindens on (as well as plants, gardens, furniture etc) so I maybe a Cheap B* when it comes to clothes but it means I have the money to add to my hoard.

Normally I wait for events such as The Arcade or FLF(Fifty Linden Friday) or Collab88 where you can find amazing bargains esp from shops such as Trompe Loeil but I decided to check out the main shop to see if there are any gifties and there wasn’t but it wasn’t such a loss in the end esp if you’re willing to spend a few Lindens.

First is this Gacha win.

This is an old Gacha from a previous event but it’s now outside the main shop with some other Gachas and if you’ve never seen it before or forgot about it and need a small and yet perfectly formed home for ONLY 25Lds you cannot beat this.  There is also a model rezzed out next to the Gacha as well so you can check it out.

A “Shotgun” shack is usually a small single room and the reason it’s called “shotgun” is if I remember correctly you can shoot a gun through one door and it goes right through and out the back door.

Inside the main shop there aren’t any Freebies for Group VIP Members, or at least I didn’t see them. What there are is some discounted items, 2 builds and 2 items of furniture and it was this sky house that was the “Woah” for me.

You get 3 rooms in total all large and open, each has a fireplace and windows etc if I remember correctly 2 are identical and the 3rd is slightly different which just breaks up the monotony if there is any because these pictures were taken in my sim setting so you can see the texturing and details which go to make a classy design.

Big spacious rooms with lots of detailed windows and even a window type nook.

And if you join the Free VIP Group and this amazing skybox is just half priced at 250Lds.

As you can see outside is a snowy dark wintery scene but don’t worry as you get 2 versions, the skybox with or without the surround and a surround on its own.  A couple of extra’s is also blazing log fires for the fireplaces or a row of lit candles.

Like the Shotgun Shack there is a demo out for this build as well, above the desk in the entrance is the TPs so go to the “old builds” and you will be able to rezz yourself a demo for a good look at but don’t buy it from the rezzer, TP back to the main shop and this as well as the other Group Discounted items are on the wall behind the reception desk.

PS Can’t remember the exact primmage but it was under 50 for the shack and without the backdrop just under 100 for the sky box and with the back drop just over 100.

PPS I’m hoping the LMs take you near to the marks but I have a feeling the LM is preset by the sim and you will have to look around to find the main shop but it’s really easy.

Renting a home in Second life – Its all Sunshineacid

Rental Home 250L per week Furnished (plus a few prims)

Its been a few weeks since my last exploration of the rental home market, and as I was feeling particularly lazy I looked for furnished accommodation. Look what I found ! Actually I found this same home in a different location but it had just been rented so I lucked out – or so I thought. Luckily for me the owner contacted me and offered to put up an identical home . I know what work that is, even for a small home – but it was done in an hour and I was ready to rock up and enjoy my new place. I cant believe this build by Trompe Loeil – “Shipping Crate Studio Wood” passed me by, it’s totally lovely and cozy. So, the deal is $350L per week, with 25 prims FULLY furnished. I was pleased with the level of decor, infact I went straight out and bought the sweet bed by tarte for myself after sampling its delights. The whole sim is gorgeously decorated, I didn’t feel out of place mooching about. Theres bridges to pause by and some really terrific trees and landscaping. If you’re into photography its a great place to be.

Rental Home 250L per week Bedroom

Here is my bedroom, ever so snuggly and peaceful, the aforementioned bed (comes in a blue pattern also) and various posters and drapes add a delicious shabby ambience . There are heaps of other homes for rent, bigger and around the $500L per week mark. However, this one suited me and my budget down to the ground. You land in a small office that displays the homes up for grabs, just touch the picture of the one you’re interested in and it will plonk a landmark in your inventory to go visit – simple. If you like it, pay the rent box and contact Claire Bricklin for a group tag. (Theres a few other names listed on the notecard you get after renting to get a group tag also)

Rental Home 250L per week Furnished

Lounger in the main space , apologies about the fuzziness on the pillows, SL was hating on me when I took the photo ! I’ve visited at various times of day and night, and it always seems to be running perfectly with no Lag and quiet neighbours. Customer Service is BRILLIANT, I couldn’t ask for more help and I was made to feel at home, really lovely.
