Thrifty Tips – She’s free, but not cheap

thrifty tips - free not cheap 1Here’s the first post of what might become yet another new series on my blog – Thrifty Tips. Every once in a while, I like to go and hunt for quality freebies or cheapies, and I think, they do deserve some space on my blog, too.

thrifty tips - free not cheap 2

When I put together my last post, I needed a few avatars for the second picture. Not too many people were around to help, so I had to dig out an older, unused account of mine. Her look was terribly dated, and she received a makeover, which was completely free and turned out very well, if I may say so myself.
Now, she isn’t one of my characters. There’s no story behind this girl and she doesn’t even have a name. But I think, she’s cute as a button, even if she’s a bit on the young side.

Oh, and thanks to Helena Stringer for pointing out the free skin on Plurk!

At Home – In the Woods

This issue of “At Home” is quite a bit late, but features our favourite fugitive!

at home - in the woods 1After a close call with the police, Moran left the city to seek shelter in a cabin deep in the woods. While it might not be the safest place on earth, he might get some rest in there… unless the owners show up.

at home - in the woods 2Finding the key in the bird house didn’t prove much of a problem for Moran and he carefully enters. The small lodge is stuffed with furniture from all over last century and in the kitchen, the fugitive finds enough canned food to keep him sustained for a while.
There’s dust all over the place and the air is a bit stale, but the only inhabitant seems to be a half-wild cat.

at home - in the woods 3After sharing a can of baked beans, Moran and the cat decide to ignore each other for now. Finally, he finds a comfy spot where he can settle down and continue his search for his identity.

at home - in the woods 4Moran can’t help and jumps at every noise outside, checking for cars or other dangers.
