It’s a Line Up.

the line up_001

It’s a line up!

These chairs are guilty… guilty I say! Guilty of being stylish, comfortable, and affordable! They must be held accountable! To my wallet! And then promptly delivered to my home!

Of course… first I had to find them. But that’s okay. They were all in one spot! The Artist Shed is participating in multiple Hunts this April and you can stock up on stylish chairs to meet your decorating needs.

First up, I found the Bad Egg Chair. It is a mere 2 prim when set down. There was also a Good Egg Chair somewhere in the store, but it eluded me. So it is not in the picture. I’m sure it was just as stylish as this sleek black Bad Egg Chair version. And it was only 1L for my hunting time at The Artist Shed.

For a rainy day…

I love this Raindrop Chair in blue. It too is a 1L hunt gift at The Artist Shed for April. This one is part of the April Showers Hunt. All that beautiful style is only 3 prim, 1L, and a little hunting time at the main-store.

Something more rustic.

If you need something for your cabin, or maybe for roleplay, consider hunting down the Reclaimed Barrel Bench for 1L as part of the Barrel Easter Hunt. It is only 3 prim, has a great rustic appeal, and would fit perfectly into many types of fantasy (or country) settings.

Something retro.

There seems to be something for everyone at The Artist Shed this month, proven by chair #4. This one is free, just spend a little time hunting it down and find the Spring has Sprung Chair. It has a bit of a retro feel with it’s old fashioned colors, attached blanket, and flowered styling. It is a mere 3 prim, just waiting for you to pick it up.

Happy seating!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 04/07/2017 – Satus Inc

Satus Inc
Hello Again Fab Free’rs, thanks for coming by. Today’s Fabulous Fab Free Designer Friday post is all about Satus Inc. If you’re not already familiar with Satus Inc, they have been in Second Life for a little while now and while they are probably best known for their furniture and gadgets, they also design mesh clothing. Truth be told there is a little bit of everything to be had at Satus Inc making it a shop with something for everyone. The landing point will put you in front of the latest group gifts.
Satus Inc Group Gifts
Each gift on this wall of gifts has a helpful hover text that tells you which group tag you need to claim your FREE gift.  The Satus Inc group has a minuscule join fee of 25 linden. Most of the items do appear to be for the ladies, however there are some fun gadgets and gifts for the men as well. Additionally there is a single Midnight Madness board. This is also where you’ll find the Satus Inc gift exclusively for Fab Free group members. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. If you head up the stairs from this spot you’ll find the ladies clothing along with a few menswear items, and some furniture pieces.
Satus Inc Sales & Offers
On the main floor next to the stairs you’ll find the sales items and special offers at Satus Inc. Through the rest of the shop you’ll find mostly small builds, furniture with poses, and gadgets of all kinds. I would highly recommend taking a moment to stop by Satus Inc and check out all they have to offer. The group gifts alone would definitely be worth the effort.  Happy Shopping!

Hello there Fab Free’rs! I don’t know about you, but I am so glad it’s the weekend. I plan to spend the whole weekend in this cute little inflatable pool. This fun Marketplace Freebie is wearable and animated, so you can lounge in the pool any time any place! The pool’s creator is June Trenkins of JT, and she thoughtfully included the beach ball, and butterfly in this animated item.  Get your copy of this fun FREE wading pool on the Marketplace.

One of the best things about a bikini for a tattoo lover like myself is the ability to show off your tattoos! I picked up this beautiful full body tattoo on the Marketplace from a shop called Natti for just 50 lindens. The tattoo includes appliers and classic tattoo layers in 4 tones. These mandala/paisley type shapes and swirls always make me think of summer!

Vintage Living

Vintage Living

Vintage Carson…

The ladies on the blog like to call me vintage, so I’ll bow to their wishes and live a “vintage” life. And an easy way to furnish your Victorian home is follow the hunt path on the Steam XII Hunt. I was able to decorate my living space for FREE by just finding the hunt items. I was also lucky enough to find an outfit (or two) along the way. Find your way to Cutie Larks and the Endymion Outfit can be yours for FREE. Don’t worry ladies, there’s a female gift there for you also! I borrowed the shoes from the Columbiad Engineer Outfit from Sparrow by Design that I showed [HERE] to complete the look.

To the Moon…

But today’s post isn’t about the clothing. I want to show you some of the wonderful and unique items for your house (if you live in the 1890’s) that can be found for FREE on the Steam XII Hunt. The hunt prize at Simply Shelby is the Reclaimed Ash Bookcase – Jules Verne Edition. It’s a beautifully crafted shelving unit with all kinds of Verneian memorabilia mixed in. The Steamer Trunk Coffee Table can be found at Casa de Bebe. The trunk include sit poses and makes a great addition it your next expedition to the unknown. Head down to Wood Works to find the Hurricane Lamp and Table. The Red Velvet Victorian Chaise is the hunt prize from Park Place Home Decor. This chair comes with sits and standing poses and made my morning coffee too! Also included in that gift are Plans for Trip to the Moon. Now if  only had a rocket to get me there. I bet I can find one somewhere on the hunt…

Carson showed some of the male gifts in one of his recent posts, The Evolution of a Hipster.  As for me, I again have several things to show so I promise to keep this short and sweet!

Rules to Live By

Orchid - Wilsons Designs

 

Breaking (some of) the rules…

Upon my return, I set down some rules to live by. How have I done with that list? Some I’ve stuck to, a few have been amended  and a couple have been thrown completely out the window. I can sometimes still be a Grumpy Cat, but the rules behind me are simple and easy to live by. The Art Pallet by ::cute as f*ck::: is part of the Fresh Start Hunt that ends Sunday February 12th, so there is still time to find this $1L hunt gift.

Love me some graffiti…

Orchid has a new group gift out for the guys. The Marcello Graffiti Shirt is a FREE (pay $1L Get $1L returned) group gift to members. The Orchid group does cost $1L to join. I paired it with the FM Dark Blue Jeans from Wilson’s Designs, part of the hunt gift from the Love Hunt.( I’ll show the complete outfit later, as the shirt has been eaten by the dreaded inventory bug that has seemed to have hit me.) The Love Hunt has lots of $1L hunt gifts. You should check it out.

The power of Thor…

I was lucky enough to hop online just as Love was completing her photo shoot (she said she was finished modeling granny panties?!? HERE) and could use her backdrop if I wanted. The Lazy Weekend Skybox is featured at The Cosmopolitan Sales Room. The matching Lazy Weekend Decor can be picked up by playing the gacha for $50L per pull.

Shirt: Orchid  – Marcelo Graffiti Shirt (free group gift / $0L /$1L to join)

Carson’s Cave

Cave 1

A place of my own…

She gets a little touchy when I hang something on the wall or bring home a new piece of furniture. She might say…“Ummm… maybe it would look better in that dark corner over there…” I concede that the house decorating is her domain, but I need a place for my things. Lucky for me, I found the perfect solution on the For Him Hunt 3. I picked up my very own Man Cave (she refers to it as the dog house) at Love Everlasting PlantPets. Not only did I get a garage to work on my bike, but the Red Motorcycle is included. I also have a handy Beer Giver is I get thirsty…SWEET! Find the hunt item and this all can be yours for just $1L. I also “decorated” with a Soccer Beanbag from Khargo (I got the immediate finger point to the garage when I unpacked this one) and a Boom Barrel from  Firelight Creations & MAN STUFF. Both of these items can also be found on the hunt for just $1L each.

Dressed to ride…

Also on the For Him Hunt 3. is the Elijah Jacket from *Serendipity*. A perfect look to go riding , or in my case trying to get my bike to run. I also borrowed the Teddy Bear Loose Jeans out of the hunt gift from Robbie Roo’s Whatchamagoos. I hope to show that complete outfit later. I am also wearing the ‘I’m late..’ Necklace Set from Harambee Gwassi-Kenya Charity Shop. The set includes the Pocket Watch Necklace and a Diamond Studded Earring. I also found my pose at Lushish Poses, also a part of the hunt. All gifts on the For Him Hunt 3. are $1L each and the hunt runs thought February 28th. Now let’s see if I can get this baby purring and get out on the road…

Early Dismissal

Wilsons- For Him Hunt

Sending them home…

There is nothing better than to hear a rumor that there is an early dismissal because of a maintenance issue. It’s even better when you know and the students don’t. It seems like dropping hints to today’s youth is like talking to this chalkboard behind me. When the “official” announcement was made, the building erupted into total chaos. I’m glad they held off letting the cat out of the bag for as long as they did. I also guess I’ll save my new outfit I picked up at Wilson’s Designs for another day as well. The Donnie Mesh Outfit can be found on the For Him Hunt 3 for just $1L. Both the pants and blazer come in standard sizes of XS-XL. I think I’ll go home and put on something less business like and maybe even take a nap! Oh, In case you’re wondering what is written on the blackboard behind me, I really couldn’t tell you.. Math isn’t my subject… 🙂
