Advent Presents

Hiya everyone! Welcome to a special Sunday morning edition of the blog, where Midnight Magpie changes her time schedule to bring you some Advent calendar gifts with as much time to claim them as possible. Most of these are only available for one day, so time is of the essence. I am focusing on gifts from calendars that either need a free group tag to claim, or no particular tag/group at all. All are free except one that is a mere linden, so easy to fit into even the tightest seasonal budget. I am a firm believer that we all deserve to treat ourselves from time to time.

For my first look of the day I was able to pair two different Advent gifts very nicely. The top is from -[ vagrant ]- and is called Piper Shirt - Gold - 22. You will need their free group's tag active to claim this, just click the calendar and scroll through the blue popup menu until you see today's date then give that button a click. It comes in Legacy and Maitreya mesh body sizes, and is a really unique style that caught my eye. As for my oh-so-flattering jeans, they are from the Advent calendar at Mishmash Fusion which is free and open to all. Give today's date a click and you will receive their ~*MF*~ 22 Jealousy Jeans - Dark in standard mesh sizes plus versions for eBody Classic, eBody Curvy, Freya, Isis, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine. There are various treats from other stores very close to the Advent board, so be sure take a peek while you are there :)

Baci is offering a wrapped sweater dress and a dashing hat as their daily Advent gift, just for clicking their board (no group needed) today. It is called Warm Sammy, and the dress comes in sizes for standard, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP. There is also a HUD that offers 5 textures that you can then tint in your choice of 18 colors from the buttons beneath. The hat is unrigged so it can be adjusted if necessary.

Dark Water Designs is partnered with Dark Knight Decor to provide a twelve days of Christmas advent calendar, free to all with no group tag needed. There are mens and womens fashion for some days, decor for others, and as you can see today is a clothing day :) This is their DWD Winter Melon Yukata, a classically styled Asian outfit in appealing colors. It is provided in standard mesh sizes as well as Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine body fits. There is a male yukata in the same gift box too. If you find that you have missed a gift and you still want to purchase it, you can pick it up for $25L from the calendar's previous boxes.

Another store that went with 12 days of Christmas for their Advent gifting is Sweet E's, and right now all their prior gifts are still available for free. When you land there are several buildings surrounding you, so please head SouthWest on your mini map and look for the doorway flanked by lit Christmas trees. This corner holds the calendar, 12 boxes set for sale for $0L each. This is the current gift, Day 11 Roll Neck Sweater Dress, with an adorable trio of gingerbread people stacked up to greet you with sweet smiles. The dress is provided in standard mesh sizes along with eBody, Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Ocacin, Hourglass, Physique, TMP, Tonic Curvy, and Tonic Fine mesh body versions.

My final look of the post comes from Waffles, who have 3 different Advent calendars set up: the one on the main floor you land on for non-group members, the ladies' group member calendar on the same floor as ladies' clothing, and the mens' group member calendar on the corresponding floor. Their group is not free to join, so I am showing you the gift from the non-group member calendar today :) All are $1L per gift, a remarkable savings for these lovely treats. This is the *WW* Red Snowflake Mini Dress, with a flirty style featuring a short fluttery hemline and darker red straps that go around the neck to form a T-strap in the back. It includes standard mesh sizes plus Freya, Isis, Venus, Maitreya, Hourglass, Physique, and TMP versions. The non-group calendar gifts do consist of both male and female prizes, so other days have had treats for the guys. Prior days are available for purchase in the boxes near the current one.

I have been at this computer for about 14 hours with just a few very brief breaks, so I am certainly feeling it now. There was a hockey game that had me screaming like a banshee whenever someone from the other team got a bit too rough with my favorite player who is freshly healed from a concussion caused by last night's opponents in their last meeting, I can only imagine what the neighbors think ;) I am old enough to be most of our player's moms, so I think that brings out a mama bear instinct lately. Since I blogged this morning I will not be doing so tonight, but will be back tomorrow evening with a final post before Christmas arrives. Then another day off, then back to my typical schedule of blogging most evenings. I have enjoyed doing the Advent posts, but now must focus on things like cooking for my Christmas Eve family gathering. It is a wonderful but stressful time of year. I hope you all have a beautiful Sunday, many magical magpie hugs to everyone!!
