Found it! (&Freebies).

I searched for a “wintery” sim to take a picture of my new Free Dress in and found a stunning sim but more about that after I tell you about the dress and the small cart sale it came from.

XXXWinter1

This cart sale is called the “Get That Cart Sale” and each cart has a heart-shaped giftie waiting to be snagged and of course I snagged, snagged and snagged some more and then I actually spent some Lindens on a gorgeous pair of Glass Slippers.  This dress is from the Dru Wear cart and comes in a cute wearable Dinosaur delivery system but it wouldn’t unpack so I simply rezzed it on the ground and unpacked it the standard way.  However this meant that everything ended up in my “object” folder rather than unpacking into its own named folder.  No big issue to simply create a folder and drop and drag the goodies into it.  I also hate to mention that the Alpha layer either didn’t unpack or wasn’t there but again that was no biggie as I simply used one from a similar outfit and we ALL have plenty of Alphas now LOL.  Worth the minor bother simply because this dress GLOWS in some windlight settings.  If you want to stand out then this dress is whats going to do that for you.  Comes with not just the standard sizes but also the metal spiked armlets, a choker and that band on the top of the dress is also a spiked band.

So when I first TPed to this sim I knew I was going to be here for a while happily killing time and pinching ideas for our own sim.  The first picture is in the large Ballroom which is beautifully decorated with dining tables, balloons, Xmas trees, dance Huds etc all so tasteful and elegant.  The whole sim isn’t just beautifully landscaped it’s also “skyscaped” so lots of flutter snow and spotd of lights dancing around just lovely.

This is a no flying zone which in a way is good as it forces you to roam around and admire all the hard work, imagination and yes also a heck of a lot of money that has gone into making this a stunning place for anyone and everyone to visit.  There are places where you can pop a few Lindens in to say “Thanks” and if you can you should.  I don’t think any group or person who goes out of their way to make such a place for everyone to use ever expects to get enough donations to cover a fraction of the cost but sometimes knowing that people have donated even just a small amount is just nice to know that people have appreciated it.

FOUND IT!  This is going to be my new home or rather my old home because I actually already have this Laq Cottage in my invent and I’m pretty sure that I also have the add-on pack of snow as well and if I remember correctly all of that will still come to less prims that the house I have up now so more primmy prim prims for me to rezz more Xmas deccies.

I’ve taken all the pictures just using the sim setting and no photo editing at all, apart from a simple frame of course, just to show you how easy on the eye this setting is and if you want to come and snap some of your own pictures but don’t feel confident about it then this sim offers you not just the perfect lighting but also all of the places with seating and pose ball and dance balls etc.  I almosty

Maudalin.

Faith and I for many many years ran a rental company but sadly RL pressures meant that something had to go and it was that side of SL and yet even after all this time we still miss some of the aspects of it.  So when I got a note off Pet (petunia908.pinklady) telling me that she has had the opportunity to set up a few homes part of me felt a pang of jealousy.

Honestly I only ever make mistakes on my blog when I don’t do the write up when I’m stood in the shop so I can double check and in this case I’m pretty glad I did because this is how this home looked yesterday but today it looks like…………………….

Snow….this.

This is a perfect opportunity for those of you who are looking for a home to rent for winter or have never rented before and aren’t sure how to do it.  I know that Pet is frequently in SL running her business and chatting with her friends so she isn’t going to be one of those landlords who never help you if a problem occurs (remember folks NOTES not IMs how I remember that desperate plea lol).

If you’ve never rented before it can’t be any simpler.  This home is not rented because you can see that the rental box is large and noticeable, click the box and it should give you the rental details you need to know, simply how much each week, how man prims you can use and which group to join so you can rezz your possession. If those details seem reasonable to you reclick the box and pay and voila you have a home (the box should shrink, fade and move up into the sky).  As an old hand at the game the prices are more than reasonable and the prim allowance is more than generous.  The houses are set on one side of the sim and each also has a small beach area but she has also laid out a pictureque skating pond, seating and the cutest skating penguins ever.

PlantPet also has her Christmas shop open so naturally I went shopping.  Not only are her items reasonably priced I love them.  The very large white privacy bush is a prime example. Large beautiful and deep and yet only a single prim and 50Lds.  Going to be dotting these all over the sim (copy of course).  A brilliant splash of cold.

floThis, if I remember correctly, is also available in the main shop because I had meant to pick it up previously but forgot.  A simple translucent floral picture to hang at a window to allow the light to show through. I’m so pleased that she’s also put this into her Christmas shop as although it’s not Christmassy I think it looks gorgeous there.  Might shove one of her colourful Poinsettias on the windowsill later.

Plant2This isn’t wrapping paper texture this is an extreme close up of one of the shrubs called Winter poinsettia and look at that depth! This is believe it or not a 1 prim shrub.  All of her shrubs even though they are single prims have a real full look to them.  She has a whole selection of garden plants from the berry laidened bushes to frost covered trees and yet again so reasonably priced and copy.

Her main shop is much bigger than her Christmas shop and both inside and outside are packed so please check it out.  I have put her link to the Marketplace but really you need to see these in world to really appreciate the quality.

Doll Face (SAH Item)

This was just a tester photo to see what the pose looked like at different angles but I ended up just loving it so what the heck I’m using it.  A SAH Gift (Suicide Awareness Hunt) from Mar.

I also love this photo as I think it shows clearly why this skin is called Doll.  It’s very china pretty with blushed cheeks, pale skin, glossy lips and oversized lashes (prim)  The skin comes from Mar (Creative Studio). The tag line on her skins is “built for beauty” and they are.  These are strong  skins with dramatic shadings and colours.  Fierce is the type of woman who would wear these skins no wishy-washy here.  Lots of demos to try on and I loved everyone I did try.  Small selecetion of clothes, eyes and lashes (bought myself a pair of pearly wispery ones which look so good on) but loads of skin demos.  But make sure to check out outside because she has some shapes on offer of 25Lds and although there is no demo they look like good shapes and for that price worth a try.
