Not everything in life is free, but I do have FREEBIES.

As I said in my last post I decided to do my little bit and went to Zerkalo and went click crazy.

But first some purty piccies.

As I was wandering around the shopping sim I spotted a couple of little scenes set out on the water and since they all have the spirit of Zerkalo about them and the sims wind light setting is so nice I just took a few shots so you can get a feel of what’s there.

Don’t worry not everything is white, floaty and feminine there is enough browns, wood and leather for those who like a more solid look.

And then I went shopping.  Everything you see in the crates behind me is what I splurged on.  TBH I struggled to be able to pick and chose from the shop so in the end since there was not only so many Gacha’s but Gacha’s where I would have been more than happy with any prize I won so I just clicked away. Though of course I made sure to have money left over so when I get back inworld I’m off to the “The Book of Daniel”  event and although I’m only going to buy what I want and can use considering the list of creators who have so generously given to this event it’s not going to be hard to be able to go click crazy.

However even if you don’t have any spare Lindens you can still treat yourself because the unpacked items are FREE and there was even more which I didn’t pick up as I already have them but from memory they’re TOP QUALITY amazing freebies so even if you don’t like what you see make sure to still go as you will be happy with what else is set out.

This bean bag seat is new to me and omg look at the quality texturing, I can’t even knit that good!  So lovely and the more uprightness of this bean bag is unusual and of course, it contains great poses.

I have already shown you this great freebie but since I rezzed it I included it esp because you get 2 versions and 2 shades, brown and black shades and PG and Wooo Adult..which I’ve never tried out but I can only imagine that the adult moves will be as quality as the PG ones.

Just in case you’ve forgotten about it here is a link so you can read a bit more about “The Book of Daniel” and more importantly the two humans behind the AV’s and this story.

A great start, great freebies and a GREAT cause!(Freebies).

Woah such a busy morning this is the first time so far I’ve been able to sit and blog, I’ve been so busy I’ve not even had brekkies yet! So it’s lucky for me that I took not only some time out yesterday to do some landscaping on our sim but also to take a couple of snaps of some FREEBIES and an EXTRA SPECIAL MINA!  So pay attention at the end.

Faith is laying the foundation, ie the roads and path’s etc and anything else that takes her fancy and I’m following on behind her like a little Sim Fairy scattering tree’s and plants along the way and so far this is one corner of our sim….we just have 3/4’s left to go!

The freebies are the dress n shoes, both from the same shop, ZD which stands for Zhora Designs.  Although there is a GG out for the ZD group to get these you will have to join a group called “Third Life” and “SL frees & offers”, both of which are excellent inworld groups for free and brill bargains.  Don’t worry as the group invites for both of them are right next to the gifts.

When you go in the shop turn to your left and on the wall just on the inside is where you will find these goodies but turn to the right and you will find a row of Lucky Chairs.

Both the shoes and dress come with a lot of mesh bod and feet options so no matter what you wear there will be a fit that fits.

This hair is a special one.  Riva is a recent style from a previous event, can’t remember off hand which one, but I think it’s been revamped with a small dip dyed colour Hud which as it happens turns out to be full of what I consider to be Autumnal shades.

This is the hair from the back so you can see the “dip dyed” effect.  This hair is only going to be available at an event called “The Book Of Daniel” and I dare you to read the story behind the event and NOT BE MOVED!  I have to confess that I too have only just read the reason behind this fundraising event and I’m choked up!

Someone else is now living our nightmare, the thing that we dread to think of happening to ourselves and a loved one IS happening to this man and his wife.  The harsh reality is that any funds raised in SL would only make a dent in any medical bills BUT the generosity of people coming together and donating goods to raise money and people buying these items will mean so much more to this couple than any financial impact.

This event is open from tomorrow but even though I’m going to be there as the sim doors opens I’m off to Zerkalo later today.  Because even though my invent is stuffed with Zerkalo items I know there is many items I’ve out off buying and of course there is always new stuff to treat yourself to. If you’ve never been to Zerkalo, what is WRONG with you!  Unique & stylish items for your home and garden.  This is stuff crafted by people who not only want to try to make a living out of SL but also want to make SL a lovely living place for others.  So spend, spend and spend some more and not only will you be rewarded by the feel good factor of just helping a little bit you will also be filling your SL home with quality.

None too Shabby (Freebie@New Mina Hair).

Finally I get to get to the Shiny Shabby event and even better I found the Freebies this time.

OK firstly the non Freebie but even better a new hair from Mina.  Because this is a paid for item I’ve taken the picture in my Nams setting with no photo editing.  Obviously there are Demos out there for you to try for yourself, and I always recommend that you do.  Very Hippy Chick Chic, called Jacky which again I believe was a popular name in the 60-70ties.  The hair as standard comes with a colour changing Hud and you have a choice of the hair band colours.  At this event it’s not at a discounted price but again at 250Lds it’s hardly over priced. I also put on the second Free top from HPMD so you can see this one is a more natural SL light.  Check out the details for that in my previous post.

But never fear the Freebies are here.

sofa

It’s the sofa only the rest are rummaged out of my invent.  Sadly the sofa at 25prims is pretty high but check out the texturing.

sofa2

So realistic and if you’re into a real shabby, cottagy, Grandparent look then this is perfect.  A room filling big piece of furniture but you still don’t look like a little doll when you’re sat on it.

basket

For those with a little less space check out the Freebie from Zerkalo, a simple wow here.  An oversized Fishing Reel type basket with great detailing and texturing.  Sorry forgot the prim count but I’m pretty sure it was about 3prims and at that count anyone can squeeze this in their home.  I picked this gift up from the Zerkalo shop@Shiny Shabby but when I went back to LM the shop I couldn’t find it but that didn’t stop me as I TPed to their mainshop which is still being set up, that NEVER stops me from snooping and not only do they have the basket set out as a Group Gift but also this great sofa/seat set.

sofa11

WOW what a find.

sofa3

If I’m not mistaken this was a gift from Zerkalo at the last Shiny Shabby event, and it’s the one I missed, so I’m really pleased to have found it again but I do believe the only difference is that this gift actually comes with a choice of colours. Leather, old, muted and low primmed.  So if you too can’t find the Zerkalo shop @Shiny Shabby then don’t fear pop to their mainshop, join the Free group, and snag these excellent pieces of furniture and the basket.
