I bought this ‘n’ that but not the other.(Mini Sale@Kuro).

I popped inworld just for a mo but as soon as I read there was a bit of a sale going on at Kuro I had to check it out. I bought this cos not only is it delightful and low primmed it only cost 18Lds, I have to confess that I think I already own it but I didn’t want to risk not grabbing it just in case and at that price even if I did I’ve not wasted much. I bought this for the same reason as the first item.  A very unusual “vase”. But I didn’t buy this, even though it’s super, low primmed and only 18Lds it’s simply because I just would never use it. If you pop over to Kuro to check out the sale items you will find them in the small building where you rezz.  There are a few other 18Ld items in this small building and I’m tempted by a rather large and dramatic piece of modern art on the wall which I might just grab when I return to LM grab.  Not everything is only 18Lds so check before you buy plus the Gacha just outside the door is only 18Lds a pop.… Read the rest

A bit like me.(Freebie ‘n’ cheapie).

Another event with oodles of freebies and not a single bit of clothing to show you! This is just for the bag, which is from the Petit Chat shop and the LM takes you to that shop. That was me last night at a big shopping center, only with jeans, flat shoes, a coat and a harassed look on my face but with great hair.  The “Black Shop & Hop Event” as you can see is laid out just like a big shopping center and almost every shop has a giftie which takes me to the bag. No close-up but it’s a great leather bag with a holding pose.  As you can see from the sign behind me there are some well-known brands here. FREEBIE! Woah, a delightful Victorian gazebo/bandstand etc Really lovely texturing and you can have it with or without the snow and I can’t remember the exact prims but without the snow it was very low with the snow a lot higher. Without the snow, this will do all seasons and is a  really nice gift. Paid for this but only 49Lds as it’s such a good prop for our sim.… Read the rest

Sorry, I’m such an A**H*le.(Freebies ‘n’ hunt).

I popped over to a shop called Asteroidbox because I know they have a mini hunt going on and as always out of the 12 items I found just 4 of them but I do get 10 out of 10 for effort.  Don’t worry though because what I’m showing you-you don’t have to hunt for you just have to join the Free group. Yup this is the where I got the title of this post from. And this, yes yet another build.  I thought this was just a backdrop for photos and not a small 4 walled room it turned out to be. There is something “schoolroomish” about this room.  So a simple 13 primmed build.  Sadly that light doesn’t light up but it took 2 seconds to unlink it and then you can put your own light in and I think that will change the whole feel of the room. This is an interesting shop and although I did find some of the Hunt prizes I can see that they’re that chunky Kawaii Mary Jane style platform, some very interesting earrings and a headband which looks interesting but it was whats for sale in the shop that I was more interested in. … Read the rest

Winter Comfort Food

What is your winter comfort food? A batch of chili or a pot of soup on the stove top is usually my go-to. I also tend to drink more coffee or tea in winter. What do food trucks do during the winter months? Do they brave the cold and hope others will too? I would … Continue reading Winter Comfort Food

I can’t not!(Freebies).

I’ve only just done a freebie post of the gifts from La Galleria but another notice came through, slap that sub-board trust me you won’t regret it, and although I recognised a couple of the freebies a couple I didn’t. Anyhow it’s basically an excuse to revisit La Galleria. I’m 99% sure I’ve shown you the pumpkin display on the cart but at 10 prims for some it can be too many but that pumpkin with the twigs/flowers on the chair is only 2 prims which anyone can make room for.  There is more pumpkin gifts a nice one I didn’t recognise which is just pumpkins with corn on the cobs etc a rack of plates etc. You must slap the sub-board and check the “history” for yourself becuse you can get the old notices and see what it is you’re looking for as although these and some of the other gifts are easy to spot a lot of them as used as decor items in the rooms just at the LM.. So another quickie before I log off and go EAT SOME CARBS!… Read the rest

Baking Pumpkin Pie

Pie is one of the best things about Thanksgiving dinner. There is usually a pecan, sweet potato, apple, chocolate, and pumpkin pie. That is a lot of pie. Dust Bunny has a complete Harvest Feast at Collabor88. You can buy the whole thing or individual pieces. I found a recipe for you, so that you … Continue reading Baking Pumpkin Pie

Never gets old(Freebies).

Over the years a shop called La Galleria has put out some really lovely decor item’s and I think that I’ve probably gotten them all and still have them, but I have to confess I’ve never really spent much time wandering around the shop or rather the sim and it’s about time I did. First the freebie(s) and yes this is an old one, created in 2014, BUT as you can see still total quality and only 2 prims. There are quite a few Autumnal gifts out and although you do have to look for them they’re just close to the landing spot and a lot of them are used as decor items in the show homes.  So there is this, a cornucopia, a branch with leaves dangling off them plus a little pumpkin patch which is also a really good decor item.  Slap the sub-board because this is how I keep updated on the goodies and as I said the gifts are just dotted around and when you put your pointer on them you can see they’re priced at just 0Lds. When I go back in-world I’m going to have a nice morning roaming what looks like 4 sims of builds and furniture. … Read the rest

Uniqueness comes with a price tag!

I have a folder in my invent and in it I slip in the landmarks of shops that have something I want to buy but didn’t at the time, it may be it was a piece of furniture, hair etc anything which made me go “ooooh” but I either didn’t have the money or the need for it at the time and this new to me shop is deffo in my “Buy” folder. I actually only bought this Gacha win as an excuse to tell you about this shop and at 50Lds a try I was happy I won this. The shop is called Les Sources and I had spotted one of their designs in another shop, a Pumpkin seat on the wall, and I decided to pop over and I’m glad I didn’t just buy the first thing that made me go “oooh” because over the 3 floors there are several pieces which I’m tempted to return to buy  at later date. As you will see the next lot of photos are taken in the shop, set in my Nams setting, as again I’ve just not decided which one I will buy but this one so far is in the lead. … 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

Timely reminder.(Freebies@Redeux).

First, let me just make it clear that the warehouse I’m showing you is NOT a freebie or a cheapie.  I personally get a bit frustrated when someone posts a picture in a freebie Flickr group only to find that it’s the tiny little pinkie ring and not the stunning outfit, hair, shoes etc they’re wearing so I like to make it clear before I start, so the building is not a freebie but you may just need it!You will find me for the next hour and a half in this warehouse because I returned to the Redeux event and OH Dear! I’ve picked up not just all of the gifts but there are so many superb bargains and I’ve spent all my Lindens! I even ran out of money before I got to the Gacha’s which I suppose is a good thing as just the freebies alone I snagged will take forever to unpack and sort out. I’ve not unpacked anything yet but I can see that it’s going to be good stuff. As for the stuff I’ve bought most of those only cost me 25-35Lds and the most expensive was a selection of wrinkled rugs for 50lds.… Read the rest

Where have all the leaves gone?(Bargains ‘n’ Freebies).

I hope where you haven’t suffered too much from the howling winds we have been battered with overnight.  We sleep with our bedroom window slightly open and during the night all the leaves got blown off the tree outside and it looked like so many of them ended up blown into our room it was funny to wake up under a blanket of leaves. Redeux is a very time-limited event and TBH I wasn’t going to go as I was going to be a good girl and save my Lindens, invent and sanity but then I spotted a few pictures of whats on offer and it was a case of “Sod That”. OK, these first 2 items aren’t free but deffo in the “Bargain” category as both cost 35Lds. A dirty, filthy, disgusting retro washing machine!  When I say “dirty, filthy” etc I don’t mean the appearance I mean the menu! This is packed with some great poses with smooth movements, single ladies, men, and OMG I won’t be using those ones!  I bought this only 35Lds, there is matching pieces ie laundry basket, ironing board which also can be purchased as separate pieces or I do believe you can buy them as a set at a cheaper price than buying them bit by bit…but check first. … Read the rest

Saving for Christmas.(Freebies).

I hate to say this but you do know that there are only 2 PAY PACKETS between now and Christmas?  Most people use an advent calendar as a countdown to Christmas but me and my OH use pay packets LOL. So here is a great way to save, in SL at least. This gazebo is a FREEBIE! Top quality and this version with the lights on the roof is only 18 prims which is more than reasonable but if you want less prims then the unlit one is only 10. These were a surprise and a great one at that. KEEPERS! (I already have enough Gazebos to fill a market garden so it’s going!).  You get 2 versions, the only difference is the coloured bauble on top.  The rezzed size is the middle one and it’s only 2 prims I shrank one down and it’s 1 prim and then I made the third one bigger and it remained 2 prims.  So you can make them big for statement pieces or shrink em down for table/mantlepiece decor.  I should have zoomed in closer, I was having a bad morning, because the detailing esp in the greenery is exc.… Read the rest

Seriously SL!!!(Bargain).

I’ve just splurged my last 25Lds only to find I’m gonna have to splurge some more because one of our regular readers has just dropped the bomb that Trompe Loeil is having a blinking 50% SALE!  Seriously how’d I miss that…ok I know it’s because I get sent so many notices/notes etc things often slip me by which is why I truly appreciate it when people give me the heads up about something esp when it’s as good as this.  Have to say the sim is, of course, PACKED to the rafters and even worse the countdown started yesterday which means today is the LAST day to squeeze in! So basically as I was chucking stuff out I checked out the NN Marketplace shop to see if this still had this and they do and since my copy has been eaten by my invent I just bought it. It’s a massive spooky skybox and perfect for those who are planning a Halloween partay, me? I just open my front door and throw some sweets are the trick or treaters and tell them to “bog off” but having said that I do bake Pumpkin pies cos I love em.… Read the rest

A Quickie.(Freebie).

A really lovely gift from The Two Moons Garden Center of a windmill. I was happy with this shot as you can clearly see the water troughs, the lighter patch of grass and those whispy pampas grasses are also all part of this landscaping item. In total 19 prims which isn’t actually bad when you see the texturing and detailing you get and yes it’s FREE and no it’s NON mod LOL. Lots of lovely new stuff at this landscaping shop, I did notice a very interesting raining effect and a big spooky Halloween build.  If I remember correctly, although you can buy and create your own personalised landscaping from individual plants and props but if you’re a lazy gardener then this is the place to buy fully planted scenes for your home.  I didn’t really have much time once I’d grabbed these and snapped but I’ve left my AV over at the Two Moons Garden shop and when I get back inworld I will be having a proper mooch around.  I don’t know if I will buy anything as our sim is packed solid but I did spot houses on the TP board and I can’t really remember looking at them before.… Read the rest

For the old and the new.(Freebies).

Just a quickie. This coffee table is called “Summer Memory Coffee Table” and as you can see it’s stuffed with lots of travel and beachy stuff. Considering how packed it is it’s only 8 prims which is easy on the prim allowance. BUT check out whats behind it….yup an empty one just waiting for you to fill it with anything you want.  OK I will confess the pictures I took of the empty one was embarrassingly bad I’ve not used them but I think you can see from these 2 pictures that this is a quality piece of furniture and the empty  one is only 3 prims and you can put anything in it you want, leaves, books, gems etc anything that reflects you can the style of your home. Naturally, I checked and yesssss it’s editable and since its copy as well it means you can have fun picking out the best bits for you OR of course just keeping it as it is because it’s just so well designed and laid out it really is such a super gift. You will find this and a few other gifties at the “Knot and Co Summer Project”.  … Read the rest
