In which I adjust to my new station in (Second) Life.

First, dear reader, please, accept my apology for the unusual length of time since my last entry herein.  As I relayed at that time I have undergone something of a sea change in my station.  Whereas I have until recently been a mere vagabond traveler, albeit a well mannered one, with nary a single L$ to my name nor a place to call my own, I now find myself with an actual residence and a position of some responsibility.  Although, I am still pennyless.  As you might imagine this has rather shifted my priorities.  Rather than being content to simply stroll about the countryside I now had certain tasks which demanded my attention.

The first task to which I needed to devote my efforts was the furnishing of my home.  I felt it was simply unacceptable to have been given this rather nice house and not honor that gift by properly furnishing it.

  In my explorations I had come across several so-called “freebie” furnishings, but at the time I passed them by.  I never imagined that I would have a need for them, you see.  Now that I had the need, I had not the means.  

It would have been an awful chore to attempt to revisit many of the places I have visited, not to mention remembering which of those might actually have free furniture available.  I thought of visiting the Freebie Dungeon again but didn’t really relish the idea of wading through the clutter there.  Besides, I dont recall seeing much by way of furnishings and homeware there.  It is mostly clothing, skins, vehicles, gadgets and the like.  To be honest, I didn’t actually spend much time there last time and there may be whole sections that I missed.  Yadni’s Junkyard had some furnishings, but none that I saw really fit with the esthetic  I was looking for. 

Those generous folks at Oxbridge University provide a box of free furniture for use in their dormatories, but after pulling them out and looking at them I didn’t feel they really fit the room either.  Besides, with this new chapter in my (Second) Life I thought I really should have something I hadn’t seen before.

At this point I turned to XStreet.  For the uninformed, XStreet is an Aetheric Catalogue used by nearly all artisans and shopowners in SL.  Once I opened an account from in world I was able to purchase items from said catalogue.  Incidentally, using the same account I may at some point in the future have my own wares listed therein.  XStreet provides for key word searching and by using the words “Victorian” and “Steampunk” I was able to find just what I was looking for.  I won’t tell you what I ultimately chose.  You’ll just have to come by and see for yourselves.

Now that I have a furnished house, I really should have a housewarming party.

  1. Mr Plutonian, if you wish I will be happy to delve into my rather extensive collection of freebies on your behalf should you require anything in future. I would also direct you to our own Looter’s Emporium in Steam SkyCity for further supplies. Do mind the turkeys 🙂

    • Thank you, Lady Gray. Your offer is most kind. I have already availed myself of the Looter’s Emporium. If I have further need I will be sure to contact you.
