It was fate!(Dollarbies).

A few days ago I had been looking inworld for a shop and I couldn’t find it but because time was running out I shelved the idea of finding it till I had more time but today because of ImproLibra’s tip about the super builds on the MP I decided to check the MP out for any more bargains and freebies and I found the shop I had been looking for because it like the shop she linked me to is now on the MP only. But first the pants.  Yes they’re very old blogged items but they’re such good quality that I think they deserve a reblog.  You get them from the Mels Store and they cost just a single Ld.  There is a couple of other Dollarbies in Mels very little MP shop and the dress and top were both really good but to me, the pants were total keepers so I already had them in my invent.  You can also see the shoes that I wore in my last post which was the lucky board win from S@bbia. I have to give Faith credit for finding the shop “^upcycled^” first and everything in the shop costs just 1 Ld. … Read the rest

Gardening in SL(Freebies n Bargains).

I’ve just spent a lovely afternoon meandering in SL and picked up a few things to unpack and check out later but I found myself at this shop which made me spend Lindens! You know me I’m a sucker for any sporty stuff and I so I happily snapped up this little yoga set which is one of the freebies at the LM given. You get the 3 linked rugs, a bowl of joss sticks and a pile of rocks and I forgot to rezz the rocks.   2 nice yoga sequences and yes they’re real yoga moves and I do yoga, with a lot of grunting and a fear of farting.  There are more Freebies but I do remember showing you them, twinkling stars to lie on the ground and a headdress/horns made of branches. This is the first thing I was tempted by.  50Lds for all of these pots and although I’m not 100% sure I’m 99% sure they’re copy.  Obv I already have a shocking amount of plants and planters but what I loved best was that although they’re all different they still go so well with each other. … Read the rest

The only weeds I love.(Super bargains & Mention of Freebies).

I’ve got a bad gardening itch at the moment and so I  popped over to T-Spot to check out any new stuff and look at my “weeds”! A lovely thick clump of weeds and flowers which make for a great splash of colour but at only 1 prim you can make a bigger clump and in this case I’ve put 3 of them in front of my window. I’ve only bought the 1 pack but I’ve spotted that there are 3 versions of this weed patch so I will check them out to see if they’re different enough to buy but at only 35Lds so cheap! and copy and Trans! T-Spot is a really good shop and as you can see there is also a Marketplace shop which I’ve put the link in for you to check out BUT you must see them inworld as they need to be seen to be believed.  Word of caution but it’s only a tiny weenie little word, there is a mix of prims and prices so before you buy to make sure they are what you’re after. I think a lot if not all of the items from this shop are not only copy, mod but also trans and the reason for that is a lot of them are Full Perm. … Read the rest

Times up.(Freebie’s).

RL cannot be ignored and so in 5 mins I’m going to have to log off SL and log in to RL…damn!  So instead of rushing back and unpacking and scene setting my latest freebie I simply pointed and clicked on the plant which is already being used as a decor item on the beautiful little floating platform which the Mokka shop is on. You get 2 shades of this Hydrangea, this “purple” one which looks pink/red to me and a blue version.  Just stunning.  3 prims to each clump but the boldness of the colours means you just need to use 1 or 2 of them to get a great impact.  This item is a free for all so just click on the board to buy for 0Lds but there are 2 food based GG’s as well……..and that’s it time to goooooooo…… Mokka

I’m a hoarder.(Cheapies n Mention of FREEBIES).

I have an artists soul but the talent of a 4-year-old.  That doesn’t stop me from slapping paint onto paper and occasionally I do manage to make something decent enough for it to go on the…..fridge LOL. I picked this up from the Kei spot stall for just 25Lds because you can never have too much crafting stuff in SL and esp RL.  Only 4prims as well and it comes with poses, I especially liked the “admiration” pose which has you kneeling and admiring your work of art, trust me that never happens in RL lol.  I do believe it also has cuddle or couple poses but of course this for me is just decor. A lot of the items here are items that were offered as 25Ld Tue or 30Ld Sat items but also lots of discounts and I bought a burlapped bath for just 50Lds which I’ve not even looked at yet but it looks great and is a cheap price. As for the FREEBIES you will have to join the Free VIP Redeux group and on each stall is a gift and there are a lot of stalls so a lot of gifts. … Read the rest

I feel bad.(Freebies).

It’s either too cold, too wet and today too hot to clean out my greenhouse but I’m just fishing for excuses because I’m really a lazy cow. It’s a bit like my SL garden in front of my house in that there is a patch of land with not much in it. A really nice 2 prim planter and nope you can’t edit it because you know I would have ripped it apart for those flowers.  You get 2 options this summer one and a winter one which is just the planter but with a mound of snow on top. This little candlestick is actually animated and gives off a really nice glow so pretty unusual. Both gifts and another which is a flower and I’ve shown that one to you before but it will make a nice surprise if you can’t remember it or have never seen it are to be found at the  “Never Totally Dead” shop.

Landscaping made cheap ‘n’ easy.(25Ld Tue).

I finally managed to work my way through the 25Ld Tues list even though it’s now Thur and yes sadly some of them are now gone as those sellers have decided that their offer will only be available for just 24 hours but fortunately Dysfunctionality (DDD)  looks like they’re keeping their 25Ld offer up for the whole week and I was lucky to snag this grass (and in the previous weeks lots and lots of shrubs). Although I’ve rezzed it where there is already grass this is nice and dense texturing not the gapping you can get with low primmed grasses. So I will be slapping these flowers down all around our sim. You get 2 versions in the pack and I think that’s simply a case of bright and not so bright, check the board for the details.  Not only is this a lovely dense patch of flowers if you click on it you get a pop up hud which gives you not just 4 different textures, the only one I’m not showing you is the very white wintery one BUT also you can change the actual shape of the patch with the hud so you can have it round, half round, roundish and square. … Read the rest

Schadenfreude Carnivorus Plants in Animal Skulls


Hand drawn carnivorous plants in animal skulls to keep in your greenhouse for Collabor88.  Each skull comes in bleached and a bit yellowed, with an insect eating plant potted in a hole cut in the cranium.  The Felis (cat) skull has a Dionaea muscipula (Venus flytrap- touch it and one of the traps will close!), and the Equus (horse) skull has a Sarracenia leucophylla (white pitcher plant).  Houseflies are included for feeding, so they can thrive.

At this March round of Collabor88 until April 6.

The Treif Menorah, Octopus Candelabra, and Tentacle Tapers

While themes are optional for Collabor88, I usually try to be guided by the theme.  This time though, I knew what I wanted to do for December before the theme was announced- Hanukkah this year starts on December 12, not long after the 8th (but maybe enough you have time for sim traffic to be reasonable).  One of my offerings for this month is a menorah.  A very non traditional menorah- the candles are not straight across, the octopus is not a kosher animal (sea creature without fins and scales!), and worst of all, was also used in anti Jewish propaganda (Nazis ruin everything).  On the other hand, 8 tentacles, 8 nights, and for those who want something a bit weird for their menorah!  (If you want a traditional menorah, -RC- Cluster just released some nice ones!)  The menorah version with the shamash also comes without the candle on the top of his head, an octopus candelabra for the entire year.  Both are texture change with 4 metals and 16 candles, and each candle can be lit and extinguished on touch to light each night, or as many candles as you wish otherwise, just visible flickering flames and cast point light versions included.… Read the resttreif menorah and octopus candelabra

Pottering & Parks

Autumn is my favourite time of the year and along comes Circa with some totally fabulous seasonal releases! The studio style building is one of the releases – “FieldView” – really tempting open plan build with windows either end to let in the glorious Autumn sun-rays. It comes with two planters and an ivy clad trellis wall. (Build is 36Li , plant decor 9Li) Check out the circular planters (part of the “Waterton” release), large array of different plants available plus of course the single tress with multi tone leaves via the menu and the tree with bench. Sweet single and couple poses built-in and texture change on the tiles. Also out now is the “Waterton” Park & Garden collection. I am so loving this – the details for the plants and foliage are superb. Of course I gravitated towards the fountain , adorable Koi and Goldfish (easy clean up option hurrha! No more groping around trying to collect them up if you move it!) This comes in three varying tones of brickwork btw.… Read the rest

Monday Meh!(Freebie).

Don’t talk to me, it’s 10.26am and I’ve only just finished my first cup of coffee! Trust me until the second cup hits my bloodstream NO ONE LIKES ME! Fortunately, I’d found this cutie last night and I’m just starting my second cup so by the time I click “Publish” I will be back to my sweet-natured self. The one thing about quality gifts is that people have a tendency to keep them and it acts as a reminder for your shop, so when I came across an old quality gift from CJ Creations I decided to pop over and see if it was still there as I don’t mind reblogging items when they’re perfect for the season etc the old gift is not there but this new one is. It’s a dog, obviously, sitting in an umbrella, again obviously, and it’s full of plants and pumpkins again obviously (remember no one likes me till my second cup!).  OK, you might just spot the puppy on the Mums head but the one on her back is out of sight.  This also comes with that sprinkling of leaves. … Read the rest

Dogtown Platforms, Fall 17 Collection

Panic of Pumpkin on the Okinawa sim is open!  Every day there is at least one gift waiting for you behind one of the doors, just knock and say "trick or treat" to get it on its day.  There are 4 areas to the town, at least one will have a gift every day, some days more!  At the landing point, it will tell you how many gifts, in what areas, are available that day.

There are also new releases- I made a new pair of shoes, Platform Dogtown, in spooky pattern options, Bones, Spiderwebs, and Bats.  Singles come with black and white scripted soles, 14 colours of laces, and 6 grommet options, and each pattern comes in 12 colours to choose from.  There are also packs- all of each pattern in a pack, plus one or 2 bonus colours, or the entire spooky collection in one pack with the 4 bonus colours.  All packs come with extra matching sole options- the bats have solid soles in their colours, the Bones have toothy soles, and the Spiderwebs have webbed soles.  Sections can be changed independently with the HUDs if you have a pack or multiple singles, so you can mix up your shoes and not have them all be matching if you like.  You can mix with HUDs from the Spring 17 high top platform Dogtowns.… Read the restfall 17 dogtown

The Nightmare


The Nightmare is here again this year, with all sorts of spookiness!  I have been missing my old prim coffin shelves something fierce, so I made fancy new meshy versions.  There are 3 sizes, and each come with normal shelves, or cross shaped shelves for the atheist vampire who wants to show off.  All can be changed to your choice of 4 woods.  1 LI for each shelf, large or small (though of course if you make them bigger, they will eventually be more!)


And if you make it to the end of the haunted house, collecting all the teeth on your way (which are mostly pretty out in your way so you won't have too much trouble), you can get fabulous prizes!  A ring inset with a tooth, from me.

 All October at The Nightmare!

DIY Tombstones



A set of simple tombstones for SaNaRae!  They are made to be customized- there is a separate face on the front that you can put overlays on for your own custom engravings (or spraypainting or whatever!)

There are 8 shapes of tombstones- each is included as a separate object (1 LI each), and there are 4 groups of 4 tombstones in one object- 2 lines of 4 straight standing tombstones in a nice orderly cemetery, and 2 groups of 4 that are all tilted and falling down- each group of 4 is also 1 LI each.  All tombstones have 4 texture options (change on touch)- the groups can all be changed to the same texture set, or you can click on each one to change it to mix them as you please.



First figure out what you want to put on your tombstone!  Note: texture MUST be set as an alpha blending texture (for best results, set to texture opacity not 0%- 1% does everything it needs and looks solid, but you can also make things more faded if you prefer).  So you don't want to replace the entire front- just do your design.  Full textures are also included in a box if you want to replace the entire thing.… Read the restdiy tombstones

I should be working but….(Freebie).

But instead of working I’m Sim Hopping and came across the “Special Moments” shop (above the doorway it says The Plaza) which I’d already been too and since the GG is still out and I already had it a quick TP home, rezz, snap and here it is. A very pink, pink lemonade dispenser only 2 prims and ont touch and you get a nice glass of pink lemonade to slurp on.  This and another Gift are to be found just at the entrance to the shop. The other gift is a lit up VIP sign which I will probably use some time as a prop in a picture. I should be working but I found a Twix in the bottom of the drawer, I must have hidden it a long time ago and forgot about it, and I’m just gonna have a lazy Monday sim hopping. Special Moments

Hedgie Costumes and Sugar Skulls

This time at The Arcade, I have 2 machines!

The Hedgie Costumes can be found in the center area, next to the great big cake celebrating The Arcade's 5th birthday!  They are little hedgehogs in costumes- they come with the hedgehog shown with the costume they are wearing in the key.  You can also remove and trade costumes between them, if you wish an albino shark, or a rainbow mermaid- or remove their costumes entirely (though Bones' costume is painted on, so that one doesn't come off!).  Hedgies can be held in left or right hand (with bento poses)- just attach them to either hand and they will animate and go to the right place, or they can be rezzed- they are 1 LI each at given size, to a bit larger.


Only at The Arcade this month, if you play 25 times, you get an extra copy/no transfer reward of a trio of pastel hedgies!  They also can wear the costumes if you desire.  Player rewards are retired after the round of The Arcade, they can only be gotten this month!… Read the resthedgie costume key

I have it all! (FREEBIES)

Woah! So I finally got over to the Cosmopolitan event which turns out to be celebrating 5 years in SL and you know what that means?  Nope no cake but even better…OOODLES and OOODLES of gifties and even better the gifts are so good! OK ignore the room I’m in as it’s actually a Rare Gacha win from this event, yes I do spend Lindens lol, but the rest is all freebies and I was having a very pleasant time just rezzing stuff, trying the clothes on and of course seeing what is editable and then I get the heads up that this event only has a few more days left to go!!! So I snapped some basic piccies in my Nams setting of what I already had out so you can see the quality and yes this shabby chic/romantic fireplace is editable LOL.
It’s obvious whats what in this picture but if you don’t need any new decor items don’t worry, shoes, boots, clothes, nails, jewelry etc are all there as well and from well-known SL shops. The dress in the top picture is from one of my fav SL shops and I loved this metallic with sheer bits outfit as well.  … Read the rest
