Squeeze!(Freebies).

First, let me say the “Freebie” isn’t that adorable brolly, I’m just using it as a prop.  I hate thinking people are going to get excited when seeing something pretty special thinking it’s going to be a freebie only to find it’s not. Anyhow we’re into the second day of DIYing in RL and the second day of bitter wind and rain so basically not much has been done, so I was “Pinteresting”, did you know that sometimes SL items actually get “pinned” so as soon as I saw this cutie I decided I had enough time to sneak in and grab it. When I rezzed I was surprised to find myself at the CCB2 Event, I think it stands for “Collaborative Collection Builders” yeah I know I have that wrong but I don’t have time to go back inworld and check it out.  Even though I’ve got the title wrong I was going to be popping in soon in any case as this is an event I love even without gifties.  I always seem to find something really new and fresh and at a discounted price.  … Read the restxxxsabbiause

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

A Quick Kiss.(Freebie).

This is a really quick post because I think that for a very limited time the group for the Ariskea is free to join and I think when I say “limited” I mean just for today.  So I clicked to join and then I clicked to get this wearable and as it turns out rezzable rose. This picture just isn’t really doing it justice, it’s beautiful, but I am in such a rush to get this out before it goes.  I might try to sneak in a better picture later as it really does deserve to be shown off in all its glory.  You only get 1 copy, which is also Trans so if you missed sending a gift out yesterday then this rose today will make up for that.  I, of course, am keeping mine.  When I get some spare time I’m going to see if I can rummage up a nice simple vase to pop it in or just have it lying around because even though it comes with a lovely pose it’s actually only 1 prim. I’m actually logging right back in for a better look at this shop as I had spotted some landscaping items which are tempting me to spend lindens so the rose was just a really nice little treat.… Read the restxxxroseuse

Hunt with me.(Freebie n Dollarbies).

A quick post as I’m actually doing this hunt at this mo but when I saw the quality of this top I TPed home popped in on and here it is. The top is the SL Frees & offers gift in the Shae’s Design shop.  I went to find the rose which is what you’re looking for in this hunt and I did find it but this was the winner.  It’s supposed to be “pink” but it’s not which is even better because pink is not my fav colour and brown definitely is.  A great fit comes in all mesh and mesh bod sizes from what I can remember and great texturing which all means it’s a KEEPER for me. Now check out the flower behind me as that is actually a hunt gift from the Dixie Dandelion shop.  You get 2 versions this stand alone one and one on a stool.  Love the simplicity of it and it’s going to stay in my craft room. I’ve found the page with pictures of some of the prizes, each prize only costs 1Ld but the SL Frees & offers is of course free.… Read the restxxxhunt

Old MacDonald had a 510 plot of SL land.(freebie).

It’s my OH’s day off so it’s my SL day off except I’m an addict so here is a piece of randomness. As always found this though a notice from one of my free group and as you can see from the pose balls this tractor and scenery is actually a pose prop. The shop it comes from is actually new to me which isn’t surprising as I really now try to avoid pose/prop shops as I may just use a handful of favourites but I swear in my invent I have thousands of poses, props etc! I’m hyperventilating just thinking about them all.  So I grabbed and ran. Sorry can’t remember the total prim count but it was only something like 22 for the whole lot, grass, sheep etc and I know what you’re thinking “I’m not a blogger so what use is this to me?”  As always I clicked and checked and totally editable and so check out this stripped down version. I got rid of all the extras, which even for those with basic editing skills was so simple and if you don’t know how to unlink etc then this is a good item to practice on.  … Read the restxxxcatuse

Coming up roses, FREEBIE.

So after a morning of binning the rubbish, trying on a NEW Mina hair, doing some piccies, baking a cake, doing a hunt,  sorting through some notes, spamming Faith and ordering some new glasses I scored BIG this these lovely roses. PS guess which 2 of these activities I did in RL and not SL lol. A massive bunch of deep, glorious roses.  They don’t come with any pose or a change of texture but they do come with a resizer but check this out… …ONLY 7, freakin, LI! and as you can see from the first picture it’s a really big bouquet.  I’m pretty sure I have the perfect glass vase for these to go into as it will make a great decor item, and if I do and it’s still a free GG then I’ll add the link to it in an update. The funny thing is the shop this comes from, Scandalize is actually a clothes shop and there is some really nice stuff in here, Kardashian in style but with a bit more class.  I did click on a couple of items that peaked my interest and the pricing is more than reasonable.  … Read the restxxxroseuse

Sorry NOT Sorry. (Dollarbie).

As I’m slowly and painfully going through my invent bining stuff I keep on coming across items which I don’t know if I’ve shown you before but are just too damned good to not do a post.  So basically over the next couple of weeks, I might end up showing you something you’ve seen before but then again anyone new to this blog or someone who forgot to grab it the first time may just appreciate a repost. Having said all that I don’t think I’ve shown you this plant before. Wow, this is really a wonderful Dollarbie.  A single prim, stunning textures, colours, and COPY! You have to get this from the Marketplace as I’m not sure where or if there are freebies/gifts in the inworld shop because it’s more a case of sets of furniture and builds set out on a sim.  However, I spotted a really stunning sunroom/garden room which is fully decorated, everything with the sofa to china in the cabinets and in the sim setting it’s ethereal and so gorgeous!  … Read the restxxxplantuse

Retro Babe(Freebie’s)

Any excuse to go to my fav beachy sims and this black and white retro bather/jumpsuit was a perfect excuse. Just a “vanity shot” but even from this distance you can see how much I stand out. I used photo editing in this shot just for fun, but it’s turned the white into a creamy colour when it’s really black and white.  A fantastic little sexy number, get it now and tuck it away for the coming Summer months unless of course, you live your SL life in year round summer.  TBH I simply grabbed and ran from the KOM shop so I can’t tell you much more but it’s FREE for ALL so just buy for zero. Then I quickly TPed back to my studio.  Last night well past my beddy byes, I came inworld and binned so much it hurt but it was also good to be able to work out the keepers, binners, donators etc and although sometimes I have to bin excellent items I have to work out if they’re ever really going to be used again and if not no matter how good they are they have to go.… Read the restxxxboatcrossgreen

Click Bait(Freebies).

I’ve just eaten the last slice of cake which was supposed to be my OH’s but it didn’t have his name on it and just because he called Dibs on it doesn’t mean it was his plus I’m PMTing so if he’s got any sense not only will he not bring up the subject of the last slice he will also come home with an armful of chocolate and won’t bitch when I put that crappy horror movie on.  If it’s any consolation I not only do feel a bit guilty, I had to text him to confess I was a pig, but I actually also now feel rather queasy. Anyhow whilst he’s out I was finally able to get inworld and start unpacking and unpacking and unpacking even more.  I’d popped over to the Vintage Cacha event and didn’t realise that yet again almost every stall has a gift set out on it for us!  So naturally, I clicked away and have ended up with a completely stuffed folder. I’ve given up unpacking anymore! Not everything in this picture is a freebie but there is a whole selection of stuff.… Read the restxxxvintageuserap

Fripperies!(Freebie n Dollarbie).

The last 2 items I rezzed turned out to be the best.  Spent some time in SL and the Marketplace just rummaging for hidden treasures and when I filled a folder full I TPed home and unpacked and binned until I actually got to the last 2 items which are definitely blogworthy. This mirror was something I was going to bin once I’d taken the pictures, I have to keep my invent under control, but I’m actually going to keep it I was that impressed with it! I actually rezzed it next to me and it’s a pretty darn big mirror almost the hight of my AV, but then again I’m not a towering Amazonian AV.  Then I slapped it on the wall zoomed back and I think I might keep it, not on this wall but I might change this to the wall next to my dressing table or in the studio or actually just shove it back in my invent LOL.  So many decisions and since my home is still all out of kilter I can’t really think too much about adding anything to it until I’ve sorted the mess out.… Read the restxxxmirroruse

A simple Sub.(Freebie).

Subscriptions gifts which are sent to you act as great reminders to pop over and check out the shop.  So this lovely 2 primmed dressing table/bathroom decor item got me TPing right over to %percent. I actually know this shop reasonably well because I’ve got a few items which yes I’ve actually PAID money for LOL.  It’s not a super packed shop but has a whole load of mix n match items of furnishings in a retro style that you won’t find in other shops. If you’ve not subscribed to this shop just pop over and slap the board, I believe it’s on the top of the first set of stairs but not hard to find, if you are subbed but not received it yet then pop over unsub and resub and it should be sent to you straight away. %Percent

No no NOT the dress!(Freebie).

Sorry, although I would be so happy to be able to bring you such a glorious dress as a freebie this one is definitely a paid for one. So I was spending a few mins in my home rezzing some more decor items out because you can never have too much clutter in your life, and I came across some items from Aisling and since they are so good I decided to do a quick TP and check out if they’re still there and they are.  Home decor items, low prim and high quality, a mix of things ie rug with cute rat poking it’s head out, some lamps and the items I was rezzing are some extremely realistic houseplants which at only 1 prim and many shades I will be placing everywhere.  There is even a lucky tub and I won a rotten apple…err not lucky tub for me then. The one freebie I grabbed because I still have the others tucked away is this stunningly beautiful headdress of big fat Spring Roses. As always I rezzed a copy of this on the ground to prim count and Holy Carp only 1 prim! So not only a stunning wearable but an equally stunning decor item.… Read the restxxxdressuse

ASAP for this FREEBIE!

The reason for the ASAP (as soon as possible) warning is that this is the December gift from Dimandis and so it might get pulled soon. Yup, I accidentally rezzed it on me but fortunately for me I only lost my shoes LOL once I’d detached it I rerezzed it on the land although this is a skybox. I was trying to weed down my homes inc some of the many skyboxes I have and of course, as always I got tempted to pop over to Diamandis to see if there was anything new and I had a nice time using the TP in the shop to check out all of the builds and I was just about to grab the specially priced skybox, 50Lds, when I spotted that in the Group notices there is actually a FREEBIE for us and it’s turned out to be this skybox. It’s basically a square and although it has a passageway there are no rooms off it. As you can see etc texturing and if you scroll back to the first picture you will see that there are some really well thought out details such as a gap for you to slide a fridge into.… Read the restxxxskyboxuse
