Tending the Info Hub

Tending the Hub

 Sprucing it Up..

I’m putting a shine on the FabFree Info Hub to have it look it’s best for the start of The Wash Cart Sale for all the visitors to the sim looking for great deals on some fabulous items.  While she is out shopping I thought I’d give the flowers a much needed drink. I didn’t mind that she was browsing the carts without me, because I snuck out early and picked up a few items on my own. Shhhh… Don’t tell her.

Autumn Attire..

There are so many great finds for 10L and 50L. I purchased the Quilted and Fleeced Wide Pants, Pullover and Matching Scarf from Dark Water Designs for just 10L. This outfit comes in several colors each just $10L.

Adding some Color…

I felt that the Info Hub needed some much needed color so I purchased both the Southfork Plant Stand and the Southfork Tough Planter Set from Low Prim Living for just 10L each. The Tough Planter comes with a watering can and an animation to give those thirsty plants a drink. You can also change the flowers in the trough to suit almost any design choice. And don’t forget to check out the gachas , the yard sale and oh yeah, the FREE gifts to celebrate the Cart Sale’s 10th anniversary! The Wash Cart Sale is on now until November 1st.

Coffee Contemplations

Coffee Contemplation

Summer Cabin Fever…

Who would have thought I’d be going stir crazy in my own house in the middle of summer?  I don’t count my numerous travels to appointments as relaxing outside time, but I am finding excuses to venture out just for a change of scenery. I’ve been enjoying my morning coffee on the deck with my Kindle in hand just to feel the sun on my face and hear the morning birds sing.  I’ve been taking evening walks at a local walking path, and even dragging walking the dog when I’m up to it. All these things give me a sense of normalcy.

Take a walk and shop….

I took a walk (virtually speaking) down to The Wash for the Cart Sale. There are many items on display for guys with nothing over 10L.  It officially doesn’t start until tomorrow, but most vendors have booths up and running.  I picked out and outfit from the selection of men’s clothing to choose from. I always make sure I stop at the Dark Water Designs cart for some inexpensive clothing pieces. This round of the Cart Sale has three different layered shirt prints and I chose the Palm Leaf Layered Shirt. I matched it with the Faded Tan Cargo Shorts, each just 10L. I also looked through the selection of shoes at Poeme. Although the fitted sneakers are for women, there are a few patterns that could be considered unisex and using the unrigged version, I made it easily fit my man sized feet. I chose the Happy Blue Canvas Chucks, also just 10L.

Rest and catch my breath…

After all that walking I needed to sit down. Lucky for me I was near the Park Place Home Decor cart and found a Bright Director’s Chair, another 10L find. This chair comes with many sits for both males and females. It also has animations for drinking coffee or wine and even provides the drinks. I’ll just sit here for a bit and watch the passersby while i catch my breath. I hope to see you down at The Wash Cart Sale that (offically) begins tomorrow and runs through July 5th.

The things I do for Love

Snapshot_001

The Honey-do List…

She nagged asked me repeatedly to make her a new vegetable garden on the other side of the horse pasture. The only way to get her to stop nagging asking repeatedly was to finally cave in happily comply with her wishes. I decided I would mow off the patch before breaking up the sod and tilling the ground.  I asked her exactly where she wanted her new garden as I was pushing the mower in the general direction. “Let me show you!” she happily exclaimed, then she perched herself on top of the handle, guiding me like a lookout in a ship’s crow’s nest. <sigh>  The things I do for Love…

Her supervisor attire…

The summer floral Cotton Top by 1Hundred is available at The Wash Cart Sale for just $10L.  In the pack you’ll find both the peach that she is displaying and also pink. I was told to mention that  “This is a sweet top that is compatible with system bodies, Maitreya, Slink, Belleza, Omega, Wowmeh, and Lola.” Her words, not mine.

His slave work attire….

I am appropriately wearing the kwitchurbitchin Novelty Tee by Park Place that I found for just $10L at The Wash Cart Sale. Also found at The Wash Cart Sale is the b/w Tailored Shorts by Dark Water Designs, also just $10L. My Baseball Cap is a FREE subscriber gift from Argrace.

Follow My Lead….

The pose, Follow My Lead, is a FREE group gift from Drunk-Panda. The Drunk Panda group is FREE to join. (After all this work, I want to be a drunk panda too!) The pose does not come with a lawnmower, but I was lucky enough to win the Spring Garden Green Lawnmower from the gacha at {what next}, which is just $50L per play.

Beachcomber

Beach Comber

Floating  away…

Walking along the beach gives me time to reflect and for just a little while, to clear my mind from the “noise” of the events happening around me. It can be very calming to be alone with just my thoughts and to listen to the ocean waves, the breeze, and the occasional bird song. The smell of the salt water and water droplets on my skin make me feel relaxed, just like a sailboat floating along the currents…

When I’m feeling blue…

I’ve been told that blue is my best color because it matches my eyes, so today I found another Cart Sale find at Wash. I picked up both the Free Bird Casual Tee and the Striped Tailored Shorts for just $10L each at the Dark Water Designs cart. The tee also includes a texture HUD for different colors and each color goes will with the pants. I’m also wearing the Worn Denim All Star Sneakers, a gift from Black Label Menswear to the Menstuff Group. The MenStuff group does have a joining fee of $50L.

The Springtacious Cart Sale at The Wash continues through April 12th.

Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word

The Walk

Sorry For the Stupid Things…

I can be a Grade A #1 jerk. I’m reminded of that every time I mess up… which is often. But it takes a strong woman to deal with my childlike childish behavior. She’s forgiven me for the whole New Year’s Eve fiasco. Now I have to be on my best behavior (and learn to keep my mouth closed). I am starting out the new year with a new attitude… She’s always right! (we’ll see how long that lasts  🤔) And I’m starting off the year in a new group gift from insomnia. The Men’s Long Shirt is FREE to group member and the group is FREE to join. This shirt comes with many choices, styles dependent on size, and comes tuck and untucked. I’m also wearing the $10L Distressed Work Jeans by Dark Water Designs as part of the Wash Cart Sale. The last day of the sale is January 4th so get it before it’s all packed up.

Walking the Walk and Talking the Talk…

She’s forgiven me and it’s time to kiss and make up, and time for me to start keeping my word. So we are going to walk upstairs and “talk” about it.  Walking is one of the FREE group gifts at RK Poses. There are several group gift poses to grab, but I suggest you have a look around at both the couples and singles poses. You won’t be disappointed. and speaking of not being disappointed… Hey! did you just grab my…. 😍

In the Shadows

Shi x Messiah

 

The Neckwarmer-man

Is he a guardian angel or one to be guarded against? He’s a masked scarfed man who roams the lonely and deserted streets.  Who is he? Where did he come from? and why does he cover his face? All we know about his is that he shops at .Shi x Messiah. The Fedora he is wearing is a FREE group gift as is the Neckwarmer and Tankbag. All these items are unisex and the group is FREE to join, so don’t be surprised if we see his sidekick, Neckwarmer-Girl  lurking about.

Keeping a Watchful Eye…

It’s crime-fighting time… at least that’s what time the FREE group gift Watch from Prey is saying.  He is also wearing a Vintage Shirt by <T> Roxidus, that can be found at the Menstuff Lounge. All gifts are free to Menstuff members, but there is a $50L joining fee. I’m also guessing that he stopped by the Wash Cart Sale in his secret identity as a mild-mannered blogger and bought the Star 69 Work Pants for just $10L at the Dark Water Designs cart. The Wash Cart Sale is open until January 4th, so hurry on down before it closes.

Tune in next week to see Neckwarmer-man battle EarMuff Girl.

Candy Cane Wishes

Snapshot_011

All I want for Christmas is You…

I took another stroll around the The Biannual Sale @ The Wash Sim and found a few more items for the guys. From the Jz for Men cart, I found the Santa’s Naughty List Shirt. It reads “All I want for Christmas is Santa’s Naughty List”. Honestly, who can disagree with that? (EDIT: A reader reminded me that this shirt and the one listed below are both available in women’s styles as well)  I matched it with the Distressed Work Jeans from the cart provided by Dark Water Designs. These jeans also come with shoes (not shown). Both these items are just $10L each.

Candy is Dandy, but Liquor is Quicker…

Another find with holiday flair from Jz for Men is the Dear Santa Shirt. This shirt describes me perfectly this year…. and again is just $10L at the Cart SaleARGRACE has a Winter group gift available until the end of the year. The Santa Hat 2016 is available for both men and women and has a color changing HUD to get that perfect hair shade. The gift is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join.

Love showed you some of the fabulous items to be had at the Cart Wash Sale from Dark Water Designs in her post [Here] but the menfolk are not to be left out. As Love showed you, the cart has gorgeous offerings for the ladies, but also some top quality offerings for men… and all for just the tiny price tag of only 10L each.

I picked up my outfit for only 20L total: 10L for the t-shirt (you get the print version shown and a solid grey as well in the box) and the pants were also only 10L. Like the t-shirt, the pants box gives you two options… the charcoal shown as well as a camo (not shown. With each, you get all the standard sizes, plus two fitmesh sizes — all for just 10L. In addition, if you purchase the pants, there is a pair of shoes included!
