Sorry.(Freebie).

Sorry, it’s not a piece of clothing I’m showing you but tbh I’ve not had much SLing time today and nope it’s not because I’ve been watching the footie, I’d rather clean out an overflowing litter tray than be stuck watching a football match.

I did just grab this simple pot plant from Noctis.  1 prim and mod.  I did make it bigger, not in this picture though, and taking it up a notch or two made it look better on top of my piano and the prim stayed the same.  It said Mod but apart from changing its size I couldn’t rip it apart and use those leaves in my garden BUT at 1 prim there is no reason you cannot simply sink the plant pot into the ground and still have those lovely green leaves showing.  Notcis is an excellent shop for Victoriana/Gothic lovers, heavy and dark, sumptuous and rich furnishings and everything you need from the kitchen sink to knick-knacks on your mantle, and yes you can buy a mantle as well.

OK keeping this short and sweet so I can get back inworld and find a nice little outfit to show you.

Lovely by candlelight. (Freebie).

I was only at Noctis about a week ago to see if there was a new GG but sadly for me it was the old one, previously blogged, so as soon as the notice came out about a super timely gift I was off over there and you can see by my outfit that was just this morning.

You get both wearable and rezzable versions of these wine bottle candles.  It does come with a pose just not the one I’m using.  Only 1 prim each so rezz away.

I love Noctis it’s a shop, or two, packed with heavy Victorian/Gothic furniture and decor sets which are up to date with mesh and reasonable prim counts.  I’ve always wanted a Victorian Mansion and although God knows, I own a few builds which come close to what I dream of so far nothing has grabbed me but the best thing is that one day I know I will.  Anyhow check out Noctis and check out both shops as in the 2 shops you get 2 colours and so far I’ve just grabbed the red bottles and I’m not sure what the colour in the other shop is.

REMINDER.

I’ve mentioned Orchard Heights before but I just wanted to give another MASSIVE SHOUT OUT!  I’m still in the group but I’m going to have to leave it as there is so much put on for group members I really feel so sorry that I don’t have the time to become more involved in this amazing group/sims/roleplay etc  They have movie nights, dances, parties, breakfast mornings, coffee mornings, speed dating, even bloody GYM and YOGA sessions!!! They have 14 sim packed with things for you to do, cycling, fishing, bowling etc and undoubtedlyy because we’re almost at the haunting hour there will be a massive Halloween event to top that all off.  Every time I’m doing something and the notice comes out a large part of me twinges in disappointment that I just don’t have the time to go.

Although I’ve given you the LM to the renter’s office you DON’T have to be a renter to join them for any event and although “roleplaying” is in the title all they seem to want is people to come and spend time on their sims and just have a FABULOUS SL with them.

PS Just in case you’re wondering the candles do give off a really exc glow, I just dimmed the picture for effect.

Poison Candy for the one you love to hate.

We all love to hate someone or hate someone we love, occasionally, so here is the perfect Valentines pressie to send them…Bon Bons of Love, great name for them.

choc dust

I actually bought these to simply use as a prop in my home because I love that old Victorian styled box  as it reminds me of the type of chocolates that would be used to poison someone in an Agatha Christie’s book and those chocolates remind me of my fav RL one’s Thornton’s.  Turns out that they are really poisonous!

Watch as the one you love nibbles on the choccie, grasp their throat, stagger a little bit and then slowly sink to the ground…DEAD!

death

Just love it, you even keep the chocolate clasped in your hand.  Looks like the loved one “Victim” doesn’t even need to turn off their AO for it to take effect.  Since you get 2 boxes you can either send a box out to 2 people you love, to hate, or just the one and keep that one for your home.  Set it out and when you get visitors invite them to indulge in a choccie.

hatstand

Just in case you didn’t notice this in the background, it’s one of my fav SL pieces of furniture.  This hat/brolly/coat stand is a classic RL design even my Mum had one.  You really need to check it out inworld to see that it has all the details from the metal coat hooks to the lovely wood texturing.  The suitcase underneath  is mine but this stand comes with the brolleys and hats inc but they’re the non linked items so you can use them or replace them with your own.

The Choccies are only 55Lds and the stand is 225Lds.   Although I’ve not blogged Noctis before I’ve actually got a few items from here over the years.  Lots of old Victoriano and spooky items but it’s one of the few shops that can do the ornate and heavy Victorian style with the look of new mesh and not old blocky prims.  If I was to ever get that old Victorian Villa style home I’ve wanted my first shop I will be visiting will be Noctis.

PS the box of choccies isn’t oversized they’re on a small table LOL.

Guilty!

I didn’t need it, I shouldn’t have bought it, I don’t have anywhere to put it and yet….I couldn’t resist it!

CorneredOver the years I have lived in many homes but all have been along the lines of retro, old, shabby chic etc and over the years I have amassed a lot of old Victoriana style items including ovens but when I saw this full sized great detailed old Victorian Range from Storax Tree and I just had to have it.  It’s 24 prims, comes without the accessories.  200Lds and worth both the prims and the price.  This is a great room filler.  For those of you into RPing this is amazing and for those who aren’t but love the old style a great look can be created.

Cornered1Quickly digs out my sexy lola tango maids outfit so I can pose next to it just so you can see the size of the range which is the exact size an old range would be.  Even if your not into the look still check out StoraxTree which I know well because it usually has a hunt or in this case 2 hunts going on and best of all check out the range because sitting on it is the Menu Mania Heaven Hud (MMHH letters) for 5Lds you get a cool AFK prop pose but splash out a bit more and the 49Lds for the Birds and the Bee’s hunt (a big bird) and you get an amazing over sized shoe for you to  pose on.

And then I spotted the “clippie mats” which made me squeal.  I come from the North East of the UK and we call them clippie mats but most people call them rag rugs.  The texturing is so realistic of fabric strips woven into bright garden patternsand only 50Lds.

The Sexy Maid outfit comes from Gathering which is a shop for the bustiest of the busty.  It has a range of clothing not just for Lolas but all the boobs out there.  Yes it has the tarty and trashy but also the elegant and unusual.  Costumes such as the maids one or full lenth ball gowns.
