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

A little bit of Decor.(MP Freebies).

Just a quickie for some basic goodies I picked up from the MP(Marketplace). I slapped em down took a snap.  The table, stool, and book come from an MP shop called [H], yup simple name simple goodies. The table is labelled as being a coffee table which is why I’m in this picture so you can see the sizing a bit better.  Actually to me it’s a perfect child’s table either for their room or classroom….or you can just use it as a coffee table.  The stool doesn’t have any AO in it and is mod so you can possibly add your own if you wish.  The book on top is another Freebie from this shop and there is also a big bold “Bazinga” sign and a cushion with a dragon fly as gifts. [H] (Marketplace shop)

Muted! (Oodles of FREEBIES).

You shouldn’t need me to tell you to go to the Gacha Garden Event as you should know by heart now by how amazing it is for the gifts set out and so many tempting things in the Gachas but if you need a reminder here it is. GET YET EFFING AV ARSE OVER THERE! It makes a nice change that you don’t actually have to do the usual rush job as this event goes on till the 31st of this month so plenty of time to stroll around and treat yourself to not just all the freebies but also some of the Gacha items and guess what?  I WON 3 RARES IN A ROW!  Having said, shouted, that, the other items which turned out to be common were just what I was hoping for so I was more than happy. Although I’ve only just unpacked 2 items I can see from the titles there seems to be a lovely mix of decor and accessories and even though the first item I opened I binned I shoved the lovely delivery box it came in in my folder for gift boxes/decor items. This thick fog is the second gift I opened and comes in a pretty Dragonfly rezzer and is simply controlled with a “fog on, fog off” command.… Read the rest

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

Pick it up pick it apart.(Freebie).

Even though my SL time was running out, don’t you just love it when I do a quickie cos there is less blabbing on LOL, so once I’d taken the picture of this rather good planter in my garden I had to TP to my studio and RIP IT APART! As it comes it’s 1o prims but since this is copy/mod you can shrink it or as you can see it can be edited down to its basic build. These come from Whims A Plenty and are out front with another GG and that’s a bird house. I’ve left my AV stood outside this shop as the name and the shop just doesn’t look familiar to me and although there won’t be any more gifts inside I’m going to have a nice wander around later to see if there is something new for my home/sim. OK that’s it see ya’s all later. Whims A Plenty

Works of Art.(Freebie n Dollarbie).

As soon as I get an update note from Loordes of London I always read it because I love the clothes and shoes and often they’re on at special events and even more importantly at special prices.  As it happens the lady who owns Loorde’s has a RL sister who owns Storax Tree and her shop is packed with home and garden items and like her Sis, she too has a lot of offers/discounts etc on offer which leads me to this painting. The reason I had to get this is because when I set up my new home (Hardwick House)  I need big and bold art work so this with its illuminating light just hits the spot, geddit? LOL.  The painting and light are linked and still come to just 2 prims. This is the size it rezzes at but I spotted that there is a resizer script so I’m gonna guess you can make it bigger or smaller depending on the size of your home.  Although this is a “Hunt” prize you don’t actually have to hunt for it as the LM takes you to a room where all the events and hunts that are going on are on the wall for you to see, so just find the poster for the “Masters of Style” hunt and buy it for a single Ld.… Read the rest

Dirty little stopper upperer!(Freebies).

Yes, I actually logged into SL at about 2AM just to see if I could grab the last remaining items from the Apple Fall sale and now I’m done.  Today is the last day so I will assume that you have some time to get in and grab and remember everything is priced between 25-75Ld and that inc the buildings(and my new home when I get around to it). Then, since I am an SL addict, I popped over to the Hashtag event and it’s its Birthday and we all know what that means…CAKE AND JELLY!  Sadly no but lots and lots of FREEBIES. I only grabbed about a quarter of what was there before I gave up and TPed home and started to unpack and of course started to bin away.  As usual, a lot of the small things but that’s not a bad thing at all.  I’m just not a tattoo or jewelry wearer so more often than not I bin it without unpacking it.  I like to just grab a load of stuff from a place to get the sense of the goodies and yes there are goodies to be found. But as soon as I unpacked this bucket of flowers it was the “money shot”.… Read the rest

One Tree Hill is on LEA7, which is a core sim and will be up and available until August 31st, 2017. It is also VR goggle friendly.

Free Rocks(& Dollarbie).

This is what I missed, I knew there was something else that I had grabbed from the Moon Sha shop yesterday but I just couldn’t remember what it was but thanks to one of our readers who gave me the heads up and here they are. These I have taken just in our usual sim setting, for some reason, it went to Linden Labs standard setting yesterday which isn’t a patch on the ones you can choose from Windlight and thats why yesterday my pictures were so dull I had to brighten them.  Anyhow, I think you can see the stunning quality. You get 3 Piles of perfect stones and each pile is just a single prim.  I can’t wait to scatter these around our sim so a big thanks to Brinlea for the heads up BUT she talks about Free rocks at the Redeux and these ones come from the Moon Sha shop (as well as other freebies I’ve not mentioned) so I don’t know if it’s the same rocks or even better more rocks! I will deffo be checking that later as if they are different styles then even better but if they’re the same shapes no great loss as this set is a great gift already.… Read the rest
