It’s not OMG it’s TMG…(Freebie(S)).

“TMG” stands, of course, for Two Moon Gardens. Since I know this shop well I know that as well as the ground level on platform 2 & 3 are also Lucky Boards and mini mania type boards so I always know to TP to all levels and click in those boards and check the Lucky Boards for my initial and for the first time ever on “Platform 2” all 3 boards have Group Gifts for us.

This ice pond has light sparkles floating up from it. You get the pond, those purply flowers, frosty grass, ferns and that very frost tree is inc. As always it comes in a super easy to use rezzer and you can rip it apart just for the heck of it if you want to.

It’s a perfect size for a small home/garden.

The LM takes you to the ground, make sure to check out the boards there and then TP to the other 2 platforms to get this and the other Group Gifts.

UPDATE: Dayum I didn’t realise that there is also an Advent going on as well.

A touch of frost. (Freebie & Other Stuff).

I’m starting to come across sims in full winter mode and that includes my fav lanscaping shop Two Moons Garden.

Regular readers know I just love these prebuilds which has everything from a full house and garden to itty bitty bits of interesting landscaping.

This one has a lightly frosted look to it rather than thick snow, plenty of that in other builds. Zoomed back you can see that this is a perfect fit for a small garden or a feature in a bigger garden. I do believe it’s only 15 prims as well.

As standard Two Moon Garden builds, even the small ones like this, come in a rezzer which is always appreciated. What is even more appreicated it that everything is copy and mod which means you can add and subtract what you want to use.

The main LM of the Two Moon Gardens shop has been completely blanked out in white and close by you can see a lot of the existing builds have been covered in snow and there is a whole area with snowy scenes. You will see Lucky Boards, special offers, sales and discounts all at the LM and make sure to check platform 2 & 3 for other Lucky Boards.

Before you buy try “Two Moon Gardens” NOT Free.(Only a mention of freebies).

As mentioned in my last post before you go over to M&M Creations to check out their homes check out Two Moon Gardens.

They now have their winter collection out.

Bunnie Badger has taken a lot of her classic spring/summer builds and totally winterised them.

This is the one that is tempting me

Two Mood Gardens does have homes and some small build/landscapes. Everything or most things come in easy to use rezzers so you just slap em down, click the rez and you can change your whole SL life in just a couple of clicks.

Not all builds are as big as the one in the last picture as there are also small little scenes which can be blended into your own existing builds. Everything seems to be editable and copy.

The Two Moon Garden items still come with a price tag but a much more reasonable ones espe when you take into account everything you get.

Plus remember that at the LM there is a Group Gift, which I’ve not shown you, some Lucky Boards, an Auction board plus a chance to win a build etc. You will find on the 3 levels, ground, first and third, there are different Lucky Boards with enough people loitering for you to stand a decent chance of winning a shop quality build/landscape.

Since we’re all heading back into Full Lockdown, then if you’ve only ever thought about it think a bit more about renting/buying a home in SL. It’s not as hard as you think and Faith and I have own our own homes in SL almost since the begining of our SL lives because just having a home base is comforting.

PS. Don’t reject the notes that are offered to you as they have all the LM’s you need but if you do don’t worry as there are 2 boards with all the LM’s you need.

Perfect for home owners. (Freebie(sssss).

I almost broke my rule and snuck downstairs in the middle of the night to do this post as I am SO EXCITED about this FREE Hunt going on at one of my fav shops.

I only popped over to the Two Moon Gardens shop to stand and work my way through my notes/notices and hopefully score a Lucky Board prize…I did… so it was a big surprise to see this.  This has made me so happy.

I did do their most recent Group Gift, which is free to join, and as always it’s such a generous gift of a pond with a backdrop of rocks.  Add to that Lucky Boards on all 3 levels, special offers and on and on and now we have this free hunt!

This picture is a bit of a “hot mess” of a mix of the flowers but the ones close to the camera and the dark red/yellow ones are another gift. They have been designed to line a path or the base of a wall/house etc and pretty long and depth to them for only 1 prim!

This bold tree is another gift and only 5 prims and you can see the row of flowers as well, I hadn’t rezzed the second lot yet.   One of the other gifts was a sweet little cottage path bordered by flowers.

The pumpkin is what you’re looking for which is pretty obvious but it on its own also makes for a nice decor item.

As the sign says there are 24 gifts AND definitely click on the board to get the hints as they do make it so much easier.

I cannot go without showing you why I love this shop and sorry it’s NOT A FREEBIE!

This is one of the premade scenes that Two Moon Gardens specialises in.  I have shown this one to you before. Not everyone has the time/money/inspiration to create their ideal home and …has done it for you and although this one is quite primmy it’s ALL there, even the home so you just plonk it down, rezz it move it into place and in the home, I can’t remember if it’s decorated inside, you place those things out which mean something to you.

Not all the builds are this big, some are just small patches of a garden with seating

I swear If I wasn’t into doing my own landscaping I would just buy scenes from Two Moon Garden’s and for a few months I’d live on a Goose farm, then this more fairy tale one,  a lovely English cottage or just get a walled garden to add to my home.  There are 3 levels to this shop and so there are enough choices for people to find their dream home or garden.

Loitering with intent. (10Ld and Freebies).

I went on the Marketplace to get that scooter Faith has just blogged and you just know I left with a full basket of cheapies so my next few posts will be those finds, if they’re decent of course.

First is this 10Ld outfit.

I was more intrigued by this sporty look than I usually would be because in the picture the seller has used there is a lot of black outlining which makes this outfit look cartoonish.  Only 10Ld so I decided to give it a test and nope it’s not cartoonish at all and it’s rather good.  I can’t swear to it at the moment but I’d say you also get 6 colours in the hud as well.

The reason I’m using this pretty cottagey background and not somewhere sporty is that I’m busy loitering on the “Two Moon Gardens” sim as I’ve slapped the “Big Prize Boards” and once you do that you have to wait at least 10mins on the sim before you’re registered.

While I was there I grabbed the Group Gifts and I’m really glad I did.

That fenced in area is the new GG, they really do seem to be changed on a weekly basis so grab now as I don’t know when it will be changed.  It comes in a very handy rezzer and is only 18 prims.  I’ve plonked myself in the picture so you can get some idea of the size.

The flowering grasses, there are 2 different styles in the picture, are also gifts and they have been out for a while and will probably remain out for a while as they’re really good quality ground cover.

PS.  I did change the colour of my outfit in the second picture.

UPDATE: Silly me! My only moan was this fenced-in area didn’t have a gate and as I was looking, squinting, at my picture I spotted what looked like a gate so I’ve popped inworld and YES! Excellent there is a double gate.  I don’t know why it’s not that important but it just makes it so much more useable being able to walk in and out of this fenced-in area and not having to fly over it. Now I am definitely going to be using it on my sim.

I’m having a breakdown.(Freebie).

On my never-ending search for landscaping items, one shop I always visit is the  “Two Moon Shop”.

This shop specialises in premade landscaping gardens, homes, parks etc everything from a cottage surrounded by very cottage style plants to a whole working farmhouse, inc a big red barn, paddocks, animals etc and all you have to do is plop it in place.

No fiddling or faffing it’s been made so simple even a NOOB could do it and this pond is a prime example, as well as being the freebie.

I just plopped it on a bit of our land and Voila, it’s a no brainer.

Add to all of that totally EDITABLE! Which means you can break this right down to the individual plants and rocks.  Even the water is made up of I think about 4 layers to give it depth.  I remember previously having a pond rezzed in my garden and what I did was edit copies of the plants to smooth and blend the pond into my garden.

As I’ve mentioned this pond is the freebie, there is also a couple of Lucky Boards AND an Auction board where the highest bidder wins the item and when I visited the bid was at 99Lds with 48 minutes left so someone was probably going to win themselves a very nice country walk set for 99Lds.  A new thing is also a weekly offer called “Frisky Friday” which is a whole build for just 99Lds, this is going to be something I check out every week!

You can use the large TP board to hop to all the different areas.

I’ve although I intended just to LM grab I cannot help but check out the whole shop and there is everything from a small vegetable garden, a working farmyard with livestock to a full-sized Abbey! I KID YOU NOT!

Deconstruct to Reconstruct(Freebies).

I swear tomorrow I’m going to clear my platform of all the clutter, pack up the contents of my old house which are still floating in the air and just clean up my carp! until then check out more clutter lol.

xxxtreeuse

So basically I was checking out the fountains I have in my invent for this really nice area in front of my home and I came across a simply stunning one that turned out to be an old gift so  I TPed over to the shop to see if this GG was still there, it isn’t, and if there is some new GGs, there are.   I picked 3 GG’s up and slapped a couple of gift boards before I had a good wander around and then TPed home to have even more fun.

The first item I’m showing you is this little meadow/tree set.  It’s all linked and comes with an unlinked bench which tbh I didn’t bother to put out. This tree and all the ground cover grasses is only 11prims, not sure how many prims the bench is though.

xxxtree2

This stone vase is only 7 prims and I’m not showing you the oversized rose bush on a trellis.

BUT what has got me all excited is that Bunny Badger the owner of Two Moon Gardens has allowed all of her gifts to be not only COPY but MOD and I’ve been tearing them apart with my bare teeth…ok with simple editing skills.

xxxtreeuse3

For example, the vase has bunches of these miniature Violas(?) which are only a prim each and will look stunning in the cracks of my old walls.  The grasses can be scattered across the sim to blend in with other grasses and break up the uniformity.  I have to be honest and say that the fountain set has, even more, examples of little cottage type bunches of flowers so when I get inworld I will be stripping that back to the bare bones but remember these are copyable which means no matter what I do to the original I will still have an untouched copy in my invent.

Gonna be a fun afternoon doing all of that and TBH If you haven’t learned how to unlink and other basic editing in SL it’s about time for you to give it a try and you couldn’t get more perfect items to test yourself on.

But of course you could keep these all together, the one thing I noticed about the …shop is that it has houses and small items for you to buy but the bulk of the stock is predesign scenes I’m only assuming but I feel that when you buy a preset piece it comes all in place just like the group gifts are so if you’re not into the fiddling with landscaping then this is perfect in fact it’s what I call “idiot proof”.

PS The gifts are on 2 levels and there is a handy TP board to take you to all areas of the sim but you might want to check out the MP to get an idea of the sort of things this shop has.
