Top Shelf

Lounging

Something worth celebrating.

Paisley Daisy has a beautiful January group gift out for the ladies… a purple celebration suit! And I couldn’t pass it up. This one piece dress suit in all the standard sizes (with an excellent alpha layer if you’re still using your system body) is pure magic. It is highly detailed and the texture is amazing, with a shimmer and glimmer that is simply unique and beautiful. The Paisley Daisy group fee is 100L, but you’ll get amazing monthly group gifts just like this one to add to your wardrobe, making it well worth the Linden in my opinion.

What’s on the shelf?

I decided to do a little decorating this morning and was pleased to make away with a free shelf from Cwtch! They have out their Calon Lan Shelf & Decor (it’s all one piece) free for FabFree group members. Just wear your FabFree group tag and pick up this lovely gift.

The shelf is only 4 prim total and includes everything you see in the picture. My head is hiding the two of the lovely picture frames (there are 3 total) that allow you to add your own textures/pictures to them just by dragging and dropping pictures from your inventory to the frame. It was easy peasy! This lovely shelf will be a welcome (free) addition to your home!

3-Step Winter Blues

Snapshot_002

Hi there FabFree!  It appears a few of us bloggers have got the blues this week and I have the blues too, but it’s more in the way of colour!  Blue is actually my favourite colour, so it pleases me that I found a handful of group gifts in the way of clothing, and furnishing items, all in blue shades.  I’ll be sending you on a three step journey below to get your blue on.  Get your teleporting shoes on!

Step One:

Head over to Chaotic Creative and join the Third Life inworld group (will cost you 10L) to pick up your free copy of the Newmarket Entry Set that includes several of the décor pieces shown in my photo:

  • Bench
  • Copy Baskets
  • Rug
  • Coat Rack

Step Two:

After you have your Newmarket Entry Set in hand, teleport over to Vintage Touch and join their free inworld group so that you are able to grab their new free group gift which is the Antique Wooden Sled you see tucked behind my bench.  You’ll find it on the desk right at the door.

Step Three:

Turn around 180 degrees and walk straight across to Poeme where you can find the mesh Chaleur Sweater (incudes alpha layer) and Winter Posies Scarf on the VIP wall as a free group gift with a free group join.

Have a great day everyone!

Doing a Bit of Decorating

A Bathroom Update

Doing some decorating.

My bathroom needed a virtual pick-me-up. I found just what I needed at Storax Tree. They are offering a lovely new gift for FabFree group members and since our group is free to join this gorgeous mesh rug is free too! It is just 2 prim and has mermaids on it and made me want to redo my bathroom space. (It also has a resize script in it, if you find it’s not quite the size you need).

So I set it down there… but I knew the little area was missing out on something.

The missing piece.

I picked up just what I needed at Mystique for 25L Tuesday. Thankfully, they leave their 25L Tuesday stuff out a few days after Tuesdays, so you’ll still be able to pick up this gorgeous sink and over the sink cabinet for the same 25L price that I got it. They come as a set together for the single price and the set includes poses (including some naughty ones if you are adventurous 😉 The set is 11 prim total together, but well worth it for the detail and poses you’ll be getting in my mind. Plus the price is hard to beat!

PS. If you don’t like the creme color I picked out for the sink, it also came in a brown and a pink for the same price!

***************

The Stuff…

Bathroom Set –  Mystique – Bathroom Sink Bura in Creme – (25L for 25L Tuesday) – hurry, it’s still sitting out!

Rug – Storax Tree – Simple Elegance Mesh Braided 19 Rug Mid (no copy) – (Fabfree group gift/0L/Group is Free to Join)

Stronger than Super Glue

Cassandra Couture - Dema Outfit

Vice Squad…

It has been over a year since I finally kicked the smoking habit. But sometimes, I want to fall back to that old stress-relieving crutch. I’ve just started back to work after two relaxing weeks off and the stress wall smacked me right in the face. I felt like all I was doing was spinning around in circles getting nothing accomplished.  It would have been easy to light one up and inhale my stress away. But, if it’s one thing I’ve learned, cigarettes are like potato chips, you can’t have just one. So I’ll just burn one virtually and tell you about some fabulous group gifts I’ve found. By joining the group at Cassandra Couture for FREE, you can receive the FREE Dima Outfit.  This outfit comes complete in the standard mesh sizes and includes shoes! There are also other past group gifts available.

Wicker Man…

You can also get some nice furniture at PiCaZZo. By spending just $15L on joining the group you can get the Contemporary Wicker Set as a free gift. The chair has several poses and animations to choose from. With my stress level, I picked the smoking one (of course). I also found a FREE Seltzer Bottle at %Percent Furniture & Lighting when I joined the subscriber. I guess smoking in the virtual world isn’t doing me any good. I better go look for a better stress reliever…

Carson is wearing…

Outfit: Cassandra Couture – Dema Outfit   FREE Group Gift $0L/$0L to join
Furniture: PiCaZZo – Contemporary Wicker Set   Free Group Gift $0L/$15L to join
Accessories: %Percent Furniture & Lighting – Seltzer Bottle   FREE Sub-o-matic Gift $0L

Carson, Who Stole Christmas

Blueberry - Holidays Gift - Sky Version Winter Cabin

Every Blogger down in Fab-ville liked Christmas a lot
But Carson who lived just North of Fab-ville did not!
Carson hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don’t ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be, perhaps, that his shoes were too tight.
It could be his head wasn’t screwed on just right.
But I think that the most likely reason of all
May have been that his heart was two sizes too small.
He hated the Bloggers, he knew what to do
He would steal their presents to make them cry boo hoo!
Then he slid down the chimney, a rather tight pinch.
But if Santa could do it, then so could this grinch.
He got stuck only once, for a minute or two.
Then he stuck his head out of the fireplace flue
Where the little Fab stockings hung all in a row.
“These stockings,” he grouched, “are the first things to go!”
Then he slithered and slunk, with a smile most unpleasant,
Around the whole room, and he took every present!
And he stuffed them in bags. Then Carson, very nimbly,
Stuffed all the bags, one by one, up the chimney.
As Carson took the tree, as he started to shove,
He saw a small dog, “I’ll take it from Love!”

 

Alter Sweater Fatpack

Just North of Fab-ville Carson did go.
With presents and goodies and the dog in tow.
But the dog didn’t whimper,
It wanted to play.
And what happened then? Well, in Fab-ville they say
That Carson’s small heart grew three sizes that day!
Maybe Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store.
Maybe Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more!

(with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

My Holiday Happy Place

Snapshot_001Hey  FabFree!  Are you ready for Christmas?  Unlike Carson who is running around trying to do last minute Christmas shopping as he mentioned [HERE],  I ordered most of the things on my list online this year to avoid the hustle and bustle of shopping centers in December, but… now I am stalking tracking numbers in hopes they all arrive on time!  I suppose ordering online does have it’s pros (being able to pick things up in the comfort of your own home), but also it’s cons (waiting for them to arrive!!).

My 80L Room

Fortunately I’m all cozy and comfortable in the sitting room that I put together with several 10L finds at The Wash Cart Sale while I wait.  My puppy is off frolicking in the snow somewhere (Serena, is he at your place again?!), but as you can see my kittycat is keeping me company just fine.  This whole scene is put together with just 80L.  I will list the items in my photo with direct TPs for easy shopping:

What I’m wearing:

You’ll have to forgive me, I know my posts have been a little longer than usual lately and that’s because I am trying to stuff so much in them – but there is just so much to talk about this month!  I also want to share with you the details of my outfit because I have some free and affordable finds ON too!

New Freebies @ Blueberry

Right around the corner at the entrance of Blueberry on the gifts wall, you will find that there is a new holiday gift priced at 0L.  Inside the gift is the pretty Mini Sweater I have on today (includes a ton of printed and solid textures) as well as the fun Unisex Antlers (also can be changed with the texture change HUD).  You don’t need to be in the group to pick this fab gift up, but… you can if you want to!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique, Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya, Venus

Snuggling In My Boots

I picked up these snuggly Beth Boots fitted with socks at Aleutia’s offerings at The Wash Cart Sale for just 10L! The best part about these boots is that they come with a texture change hud, so you can match them up with whatever you are wearing in a click!

Whew.. ok, onto my next project!  Enjoy your day 🙂
