I’ve got Hives.(Freebies).

I managed to do the FLF(Fifty Linden Friday) and went over to Hive to buy the gorgeous garden hose and spotted FREEBIES. A top quality Pergola, I think it’s 21 prims but if you’re prim counting you get a non-light pergola option as well. This is the Valentines gift from Hive and only 3 prims.  Amazing quality. There is a third gift which is a sign warning people of falling coconuts and we don’t have coconuts on our sim so I just left that one. I don’t know if the FLF item is still set out but check it out when you’re gabbing these home and garden goodies. Hive

Stink Eye.(10Ld Group Gift).

That was sweet and simple and all thanks to a link from one of our readers, Brinlea, who gave me the heads up on this GG from Lode. I’m not sure why but the Jian chickens really seem to have “F*CK YOU” faces on them, chickens with attitude! The pump is the gift, not the stink-eyed chicken. Comes with it’s own little stone square and look closely you will see the dragonflies attached to it.  It is copy and mod…except the only thing you can unlink is the Dragonflies and as it happens I’ve removed the pump and left them because although they are static they look pretty good where they are. Cost 10Lds to join which is just a token price so simply join the group and you will find this gift in the group notices not in the main shop.  Better hurry as Group Notices disappear after 14 days and I don’t know how long this has been out. Lodes isn’t a furniture/house/garden shop it’s actually a shop which sells some stunning headdresses and now it’s also a shared clothes shop with VRSION(sic) upstairs.… Read the rest

Just this.(Oodles of Freebies).

Blimey, I’m pretty sure I’ve still not unpacked at least 2 folders previous gifts picked up from the Vintage Gacha fair’s but this time I’ve been harder and as I unpacked I binned, binned and ooo kept. This small rug is as simple as it all nice and scrunchy.  The Diamond tealight holder might look a bit tacky against the old fashioned textured rug but the reason I’m going to be keeping it is because of the ambiance light it gives off it’s like a “face light” for your room, gives off a really strong and yet soft glow so I’m keeping it and tbh since it won’t fit into the style of my living room I’ll hide it under a table or chair etc so I get the glow but without the clashing decor style. Then I gave in because of the Lag Hell but that was from all the other Greedy CB’s like me LOL.  So I basically only managed to do a third of this event.  I know that often there is a mix of good, bad and ugly but that’s half the fun.… Read the rest

Guilty!(Fun FREE Stuff).

Yup I’m guilty of time wasting on the Marketplace but I’ve downloaded a whole load of mesh head demos to try out and then this lot of pure randomness! This cover all allows you to be out and about and at the same time enjoying one of you fave hobby, KNITTING of course.  Actually, you can’t make me out but in SL if you look closely enough you can see the perv inside is emm “spanking the monkey” as we say sometimes in the UK.  You could wear this outfit when forced to go shopping inworld with your significant other or simply plonk yourself next to an innocent passerby or shopper and see how quickly your ass is banned from that sim. Yup, they’re back the scammers and begging bots!  You get 2 signs, the pose comes with it but that gurning face is mine. This is an oldie and a classic, both Faith and I at some stage has owned it but it’s still cute. I have a feeling this is for kids but since the movements you get with this are pretty good I’m not sure.  … Read the restslwuse

Retail Theraphy, FREEBIES.

First the Freebies. It’s the tree I’m looking at, a romantic cuddle tree with poses in the cushion and kissing pose balls, yuk! lol.  Comes on a little hill and some planting, NOT that red plant that’s on our sim but it looks like it’s with this tree. The other freebie is this pond with a fountain and again comes with the planting n stuff.  I’m pretty sure the tree above isn’t mod but this pond sure as heck is sooooo Voila. With simple editing skills, I removed the fountain bit.  If you look closely you might just see that I’ve also somehow removed the base of the pond but it has given me a good idea as you could use this as a secret entrance to a cave etc or in my case I’m swiping those plants to use in my garden. Now for the NOT free but if you have a home or land in sl but you’re not into landscaping then this is the place for you to visit. Pretty unique looking home and landscaping. Lots if not all of these stand alone pre-builds come in rezzers so it makes it idiot proof or simply an excellent time-saving device for those who just don’t have the time to use landscaping.  … Read the restslpond3

Failed!

I couldn’t find any freebie’s but what I did find outside of the shop I was looking in is this. I was after something like this in any case so once I’d priced/primmed checked I decided to buy it.  I’ve just slapped it where I want it on my sim and at some stage, I will soften it by landscaping around it to make it look more settled in. It does come with some single/couple and even dance poses, those I couldn’t try out but the single ones seemed ok and I’m using one in this picture so you can also see the sizing of the dock. As you can see a really nice boat is rezzable, 6 temp prims, BUT I couldn’t get the rowing position to work and I did try quite a few times.  For me, this isn’t an issue because I wanted a permanent boat out and not one that disappears as soon as you stand up but this might be a problem for you if you do need a rezzable boat that works.  So why buy?  It’s actually a pretty decent build for the price and prims, only 6 for the main dock and 1 for the steps leading up to it.  … Read the restxxxdockuse

Ma, she’s doing it again!(Freebies).

I don’t know what time it is in your part of the world but in mine it’s mid afternoon and I have decided that by the time I’ve unpacked all the FREE stuff from The Gacha Garden event it’s going to be late afternoon and it seems a shame to make people wait till then esp if they have time to kill now. This is where you rezz, just follow the leaves and it takes you into the event itself.  I keep my mini map open, I’ve said in previous posts why, and I know that this is a really easy and simple layout.  Just go either left or right in a circle and pick up all those FREEBIES on the way. I can’t remember how many gifts I snagged and I won’t admit to how many attempts at the Gacha’s I had but what I won I was most happy with.  So basically don’t wait for my pictures if you want to go grab them yourself before that post but I’m going to be relogging in and spending a lovely afternoon unpacking the lot, binning some, saving some and taking pictures of some so later I will do another post later on plus I also have a New Mina to show you.… Read the restxxxgachause

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
