It Was A Cold Winter Night… Outside These Four Walls

It may have been a cold, winter night outside, but inside these four walls, it was warm and cozy! Like Love, I recently did a little Cold Winter Nights Hunting. And she did not exaggerate about how fabulous the prizes are in this hunt! Check out Love’s post here for more information about the Cold Winter Night Hunt and for photos of some of the great prizes she picked up.

I invited Gavin over to see my new Little Getaway Skybox, the CWNH prize from Designer Prims. I had so much fun playing with the options on this amazing skybox that I may have gotten an eensy bit carried away. Seriously though, there is almost nothing you can’t mod, so you can customize it to be whatever you want it to be. There’s a menu-driven panel to change the floor, brick walls, and accent wood; the rest you can just re-texture yourself. Trust me, your 10L will be well spent on this one! The furniture you see here (most of it) is part of the hunt prize from Cleo Design. It includes two different sofas, a rug, coffee table with candles and fruit, a magazine rack, and a mirror and set of pictures that you can’t see in this picture. Again, I went a little nuts playing with the color options on the sofas. They come with several fun animations, and even dispense props! The lovely artwork you see over the green sofa not a hunt prize, but is a gift from Whiskey Monday to celebrate the first anniversary of Atelier Kreslo. There is also second gift, which I’ll show you in a bit.

Another view of the skybox. Gorgeous, isn’t it?

I had this empty back wall and nothing to fill it up, so I accidentally on-purpose wandered off into another hunt: The Four Walls Hunt.

The Four Walls Hunt runs until January 31st, and includes 37 stores. All prizes are 20L, but are valued at 200L or more. Be sure to visit the official blog for prize photos and SLURLs. You’ll be hunting for an evergreen tree in a cardboard box.

PRIZE PREVIEW AND SLURLS

Ok, back to my empty wall: I saw a picture of the Miller Dresser and Positive Words Art from PILOT and decided that I absolutely had to have it. Can you believe the dresser is only 2 L.I.? Oh, and see that cakestand full of delicious cupcakes? Another Four Walls prize, this time from Sway’s. It comes with the plates and cups you saw on the table in the previous pictures, as well as a couple of cute wall-hangings. Yummy! The Bird Cage Lamp is not a hunt item, but rather a free gift from Sway’s. There is also a smaller version in the box. Over in the corner is another non-hunt item, the Mayfair Trunk (Old Glory), a VIP group gift from {what next} (250L to join). The bookcase and furnishings inside are part of the skybox. :-)

Gavin is such a “Sheldon” that I decided to pick up the Star Party star-gazing set, the CWNH prize from -Hanaya-. It is mesh, weighs in at 9 L.I., and comes with menu-driven animations for up to three avatars. It’s really a lot of fun to play with. Hey, looks like Gavin found something!

Here is an outside view of the skybox. The inside brick texture carries to the outside wall. There is a door on the other side, in case you decide to put your home on land instead of floating in the sky.

More evidence of my “modding madness”: I took out the fireplace that came with the skybox and added this Oak Fireplace, the CWNH prize from [Barnesworth Anubis]. The mirror over the mantle and the two pictures to the left of the fireplace are part of the Cleo Design CWNH prize. And the little daisy on a chair is the other anniversary gift from Atelier Kreslo; it comes in 3 sizes, with this one being the largest. To the right of the fireplace is the Pallet Log Box, the most recent VIP group gift from {what next}. Gavin and I decided to finish off those cupcakes; we’re snuggling in the Warming Up couples pose, the CWNH prize from Atooly.

Oh, and about what we’re wearing: Gavin’s beautifully textured mesh sweater is the CWNH prize from {Epicosity}, and my sparkly Pom Pom sweater is the prize from ::PurpleMoon::. My pants are not a hunt prize, but I’ll tell you about them anyway: they are the R.icielli Mesh SALLY Skinny Pants, available for 10L on the Marketplace. You get 10 different colors in the box, each in 5 standard sizes. How’s that for a deal? UPDATE: Gavin’s pants are a holiday gift from Rispetto Designs, and will be available to group members until approximately February 1st (50L to join); look for the boxes under the Christmas tree. We’re both wearing free skins; Gavin’s is part of the latest group gift from -Belleza- (250L to join), and mine is [ROCKBERRY]‘s free gift at FabFree Headquarters.

Whew! Any cupcakes left?

Hello World!

Fabulously Free in SL - Hello World!

“Hello World” is the dorky title that WordPress gives every new blog as a sample post, but I thought it was appropriate for this post, for a variety of reasons. :-)

So… hello Fabulouses! As I was leaving this lovely cafe – late as usual – I got a call from Renee Lowenhart inviting me to join the FabFree team. Of course I said yes, but after I hung up, I had to sit down and hyperventilate for a few minutes. I mean, I’m just a small-town girl who likes to “play dress up.” What do I know about fashion? How am I going to know what to write? How am I going to know what to wear???

[breathe in... breathe out... repeat... repeat...]

Ok, better now. I’ll admit that I’m still a bit stunned and nervous, but the folks here at FabFree have really gone out of their way to make me feel welcome and at home (thank you!). I apologize that some of the items I’m wearing in this post are no longer available for free (I went back and checked)… I originally did this picture about a week or so ago, and decided that I liked it and wanted to share it with you anyway. I promise that I’ll do better next time, and my next post will have more freebies!

My outfit, I’m happy to say, is available from Purple Moon as their With Love Hunt prize. I love, love, love the texture of the suede skirt and the way the shirt drapes so naturally. My jewelry is from two previous gifts offered by Chop Zuey, which I’m sorry to say are no longer available. However… there are a couple of pretty gifts there now, which Love previously blogged about here. Gifts are located in the center of the store, and you don’t need to join a group to get them.

My fabulous phone pose is from the “Call Me” set by aDORKable Poses, and is their With Love Hunt prize. I’m sure you’ve already seen it all over the blogs, but I just can’t resist a good pose prop. There are 10 poses in the package, which for 10L is truly amazing! Don’t forget: you’re looking for a little red box with a black bow.

Oh no… will you look at the time? I’m off to find more goodies for you!

Falling Into The Season Hunt – Part 1

Snapshot_001rerThis weekend I did the Falling Into Seasons Hunt that is put on by Atooly Hunts and I will be showing you several of the hunt gifts in parts.  The Falling Into Seasons Hunt runs until November 23rd, which means you have less than a week to finish it!  It is not a huge hunt – only took me a couple hours to complete.  The hidden hunt icon to search for is a bright orange maple leaf.  A complete list of participating stores and hints are listed at the official hunt blog – http://atoolyhunts.wordpress.com/falling-into-the-season/

You can find the gorgeous mesh Autumn Leaves Sweater Dress at NiNight Creations.  It comes in several sizes to suit your avatar, and is beautifully textured in autumn shades.  The boots I am wearing are not part of the hunt – but they are free and look so cute with the sweater dress!   You can snag these cozy warm Fall Flat Boots as a free group gift in the past notices of the Allusions inworld group – which is free to join!  They are texture change with a click and you can change the different parts of the boots to different colours, to change the look!
Snapshot_002ereThe pale, freckled skin I am in today… I find to be quite adorable.  You can find this hidden in the leaf icon at Sui Generis for the Falling Into Seasons Hunt.  My Autumn Nails are also a hunt gift, and are cleverly hidden at Laville! They even come with a HUD that allows you to change the colour to a handful of Autumn shades :)

The WAY TOO AWESOME mesh streaked blonde hair I am wearing is called Steph II and is a free Where Is The Concert Hunt 2 prize!!   It comes with several streak options.   I love this hair so much, I am not wanting to take it off.  You can find this hair, at Alice Project after you locate the hidden concert ticket!  I will have to take it off soon however, because I have another free Alice Project Falling Into Season Hunt hair to show you in the next post!!

I’ll be back soon to show you more of this fantastic hunt!
