Finding FabFree 41 – 60

Fabulously Free are celebrating 5 years! We all know how time feels in SL. Days can seem like weeks, weeks like months and years like a life time so this is a huge achievement!

I know I am the newest writer on the block but I have been reading FabFree for at least 3 of those 5 years and have always been eager to see the newest freebie finds and reading all about new designers. I have had my favourite writers, ones that have been an inspiration to me to try my hand at blogging and I am so honoured to now be part of the family here. I only hope I can help to carry on the blog for another 5 year and more! Who knows what will be going on in here by then!

Here are the gifts numbered from 41 – 60 in the Finding FabFree Hunt. There are some really amazing items that I know you are all going to love. Remember there are male gifts too, just us girls have passed those on to Kyle to blog seperately so those will be coming up soon aswell as the final half of the hunt! I hope you are all having fun!

Furnishings Friday #12 – The Strawberry Box

Snapshot_002It’s Furnishing’s Friday #12!! If you aren’t familiar with the challenge I made myself… 12 weeks ago, I challenged myself to start showing structures, furniture, or decorative items each Friday.  I am usually ALL about the clothes, but I know there are many of you out there that prefer to express yourself with landscaping or home decorating rather than sprucing avatars up and free or  nearly free furnishings are just not shown enough.  I have been enjoying showing these items, and have even been showing a few here and there during the week too!   With that…  Here are some fabulous finds @ The Wash Cart Sale you might be interested in!

In the photo above I am displaying the Forest Swing that I found on The Strawberry Box Cart @ The Wash for 10L.  It swings and holds two animated avatars.  The cute mushrooms and fern at the base are part of the structure.  Below I am enjoying a delicious park bench lunch on Strawberry Box’s Snacktime In The Park set that includes the tree behind me and also the bench with a ton of animated sits (also 10L).

FF12.2After all those fatty calories, it’s a good thing I’m wearing a mesh dress… I had to put on a whole different size after lunch today!  This dress is not free, but is a great deal.  You can find the Sassy! Summer Dress in the Pink Leaf print for just 70L @ Acid Lily.  They will be switching out the designs soon, so make sure you stop by today if interested!  The N@N@ Lenita Jewelry Set I am wearing includes the pastel necklace and earrings and can be found on the N@N@ Cart @ The Wash for 10L/set.
