Cottage Dreams

Cottage Dreams

It’s Sunday Funday, Fab Free!  It’s the perfect day to do some gardening, and potter about in my little English cottage.  Well, I mean…it’s probably the thing that people do who own cottages and like to garden.  I, on the other hand prefer to just sit back and admire the blooms while talking airily about how wonderful the petunias look.  If you’re like me and you like to hang out in gardens boasting about the work you did without ever really having a speck of dirt under your nails, then I’ve got the perfect deal for you!

Enjoy the Harvest

It’s time for another round of Syndicate Sunday!  This month, Harvest Moon have put out this super adorable cottage and garden set out for only 69L!  The entire set is super adorable, and comes complete with a really bright garden, several large trees, potted plants and an extremely livable cottage that it is more than just cute.  You have the choice of just rezzing the cottage, or both the cottage and garden.  The cottage has a Land Impact of 163, whereas both cottage and garden come out to 350 Land Impact.  Rezzing it out was simple as anything, and I was well impressed with how it all looked that I was quite reticent to put it all away!  To get yours, head on over to Harvest Moon – this deal for Syndicate Sunday will only be out for the week, so don’t delay! There are other great deals for you at other participating shops, so make sure you take a look at the Second Life Syndicate website!

Happy Gardening!

Your Own Underdark!

In the dark_001

Your own Underdark…

It’s not often you get the chance to own your own Underdark, especially for the price of just 1L. Zyn is offering their Mini Underdark Skybox on the Marketplace for just that! 1L and it’s yours. It’s only 47 prim and it’s rather detailed, with multiple cavern rooms, a water pool, stalagmites and stalactites, mushrooms, lanterns, and more. The picture above is taken in part of one of the detailed caverns!

Ahhhh roleplay…

Roleplay is one of those fantastic past-times in Second Life and it’s always fabulous when you can come across some great gifts to add to your wardrobe. I stopped by the Menstuff lounge and there is a large assortment of menswear currently out that you can pick up for your one-time fee of 50L to the Menstuff group. Among the items was this “Morris” outfit. It’s really just a regular every day outfit, but since it doesn’t have any zippers and with the right accessories, I managed to turn it into a medieval one! It comes in a variety of mesh body sizes.

Outfit sizes available:

  • Classic XS-XL + alpha
  • Belleza
  • Gianni
  • Slink
  • TMP
  • Aesthetic

The details make the man

It’s the details that make this outfit work as a roleplay outfit. I stopped by Noble Creations and picked up some “details” to make this into a roleplay creation. The Noble Creations group is free to join and these gifts were free to pick up. I picked up the Prince in Leather neck piece to add over the top of the Morris shirt. I also picked up the Medici Pouch belt to add to my waist. Take note… this belt fit a little funny at first. I had to edit it to my shape, but it comes with a handy resizer that allows for resizing on all axises separately for a perfect fit!

The L’Homme Gift.

I think the L’Homme group gift from Noble Creations really makes this outfit. It’s a set of horned Bracers and Pauldrons that really stand out. You could add some weapons to this outfit to complete your look. Perhaps a shield and an axe or a sword and you’d be ready to go warrior! As always, the L’Homme group is free to join so this gift is free as well!

Happy roleplaying!

contemplate sundays.

Yay to Sunday! While Saturdays are for running chores and shopping and whatnot, Sunday is usually the day to chillout and relax at home (in preperation for the Monday blues of course).

One of the greatest woes of being a home owner is the finding the most suitable deco, and in the case of SL and my post, beautiful and FREE deco. Hence, I thought I’d show some great (free) finds around SL you can use to furnish your home, and hopefully, you’ll find your home as relaxing as mine. I usually like to begin my search for furniture on Marketplace, and nordari. happens to have lots of beautiful and cheap items. To complement my house, I’ve put on a comfy and pretty jumpsuit from Ashmoot’s Join the Picnic Hunt along with a pair of sandals from Room of AMO.

The Case of Praying Mary – Part 1

mary2_Final3

“Why can’t I get her voice out of my head…her stories…I’m losing my mind”

It’s Praying Mary, her ghost haunts me ever since I learned about her while on the latest hunt from Madpea. I started at Hoshi Island and bought the HUD for a small fee of 10L and began my investigation. I followed in her footsteps and found where she murdered countless men and always left her signature weapon behind, a cross. I was terrified, but in the end I had found them all and discovered her dark secret leading to great rewards! Remember you must be brave and survive to the end if you want to earn any of these prizes. The hunt runs until November 4th.

Above you will see me sitting in the comfortable “Gloomy Sunday” accent chair from Senzafine which includes 5 poses. Next to me is the charming Blue Charlotte Cabinet from LISP which includes the books and two candles. The Praying Mary dagger in my hand is from <Southpaw> and works with Spellfire and DCS systems.

“I must fight it…must escape this house…must resist…must kill…NO!”

From +sanctuaire+ is the “Along Comes Mary House” and is made with partial mesh. This cozy abandoned home features working windows and doors, mesh radiators, and faded wallpaper with shadows of old hangings. It is 129 prims and also has a secret hiding space with a surprise inside for those who find it.

“I’m a murderer…I must kill! Carry out Mary’s killing spree from beyond the grave!”

Oh my did I do that? From Michigan’s Shack comes Praying Mary’s Bed complete with the dead corpse. It has 3 animations inside that play when you lay down on the bed. My bloody outfit is from 22769 and includes the mesh blood drained slip on top and mesh pants with blood stains. The Bloody Mary Fortune Mirror behind the bed comes from Impish and on command Mary will appear from a bloody haze and read your fortune.

“I bear her cross and use the blade to carve her name for me on my chest, Misfit”
To be continued in Part 2…

You can find the stunning Praying Mary’s Cross necklace from Chaos, Panic, and Disorder and on touch you can choose to reveal a hidden blade that slides out of the cross. The Misfit Carved Tattoo on my chest is from {:ThirteenTH:} and comes on three different layers.

Furnishings Friday #8 – A Clean Slate

[dirty.little.secret] __ Seraphim Turns One Hunt Gift

Today is Furnishings Friday, the day I dedicate to blogging a house, or furniture or decorative items for the home! Today I am showing you the Clean Slate Home, built by Tash Porthos from Dirty.Little Secret.  I feel very guilty that I have no taken photos of it myself, but I just didn’t have the prims to spare on my land – the vendor picture is pretty good and shows it well.  You can snag this really great build for just 10L by locating the Seraphim Turns One Hunt icon instore until July 31st.

The Clean Slate Home features two levels with wide open rooms, large picture windows and a pergola glass roof.  Everything you see in the above photo is just 95 prims and it is fully mod and copy so you can add some of your own ideas to it!  Tash loves this house so much, she’s living in a version of it herself!

You can learn more about this particular hunt at the following link – http://seraphimsl.com/seraphim-turns-one-birthday-hunt/

Happy Hunting Fabulouses!
