Cottage Dreams

Cottage Dreams

It’s Sunday Funday, Fab Free!  It’s the perfect day to do some gardening, and potter about in my little English cottage.  Well, I mean…it’s probably the thing that people do who own cottages and like to garden.  I, on the other hand prefer to just sit back and admire the blooms while talking airily about how wonderful the petunias look.  If you’re like me and you like to hang out in gardens boasting about the work you did without ever really having a speck of dirt under your nails, then I’ve got the perfect deal for you!

Enjoy the Harvest

It’s time for another round of Syndicate Sunday!  This month, Harvest Moon have put out this super adorable cottage and garden set out for only 69L!  The entire set is super adorable, and comes complete with a really bright garden, several large trees, potted plants and an extremely livable cottage that it is more than just cute.  You have the choice of just rezzing the cottage, or both the cottage and garden.  The cottage has a Land Impact of 163, whereas both cottage and garden come out to 350 Land Impact.  Rezzing it out was simple as anything, and I was well impressed with how it all looked that I was quite reticent to put it all away!  To get yours, head on over to Harvest Moon – this deal for Syndicate Sunday will only be out for the week, so don’t delay! There are other great deals for you at other participating shops, so make sure you take a look at the Second Life Syndicate website!

Happy Gardening!

Hi Fab Free! I’m back with some beautiful landscape/scenery finds from Simply Shelby. The setting in the above photograph is almost entirely made up of either one of the 30 Linden Saturday items at Simply Shelby or the equally awesome and completely free April group gift also at Simply Shelby. The only reason I say “almost” is because that small patch of green grass is not included. Keep reading for all the details about each fabulous offer at Simply Shelby.

30L SaturdaySimply Shelby has several offers for today’s 30L Saturday items. Generally speaking, I believe Simply Shelby does leave these items up until the following Saturday, however I wouldn’t guarantee that, so do not miss these just in case! I picked up her Druid’s Cave both because I love it, and of course because I really wanted to share it with you! This set includes the cave, with the added vines, candles, the little crystals and mushrooms, along with the Druid Priest, the alter, and an additional vine. The Druid Priest, the alter, and the vine are all copy, so you can rez out as many as you like, or leave them out all together. The cave is copy as well. No group is needed for this awesome set, just teleport to Simply Shelby and run over to the “Sales” building where you can purchase this set for just 30 linden along with several other fantastic items.


Simply Shelby Mystical Druid Cave

April Group Gift – The free April group gift at Simply Shelby is this lovely maple tree with surrounding floral landscape, rocks, and the adorable bunny all together. This item is no transfer, however it is copy and modify so you can adjust it to your liking if you so desire. Just be sure to make a copy first! To get your copy of this free group gift, you’ll need the Simply Shelby group tag. The group is currently free to join. Also, there are quite a few other group gifts also available. The Simply Shelby group gifts are located in the VIP/Hunts & Events building alongside the Lucky Chairs and Midnight Madness boards.

Here are the details:

Spring Swing & Coffee Things


Here Comes The Sun

Hello hello Fab Free! So the Spring Cart Sale at The Wash is in full bloom. Did you see what I did there? Punny right! I’m full of good humor today. No really, it’s been a great day, and I hope your day has been just as awesome. I’m about to make things a little more awesome by sharing with you a few fabulous finds at the afore mentioned Cart Sale. For this post I picked up an inexpensive item at the Kitty Creations Cart, and a couple of equally budget friendly items at Totally Random’s Cart.

Swings and Flowers and Things – I love when a product includes all the things. This Cart Sale find by Kitty Creations is just that, it includes the garden swing, the tree with twinkle lights, the garden shrubs, and the pretty spring flowers. Also, the garden swing is set up with solo his and hers poses, couples poses, and even a few sweet slow dances. You can get this garden set by Kitty Creations at their Spring Cart Sale Cart for just 25 linden.

Ode to Coffee
But First Coffee – I’m one of those that can and often does drink coffee at any time of day. It’s not just a morning beverage in my world. I like the way it tastes, the way it smells, and even the sounds my coffee pot makes as it percolates. That said, when I saw these coffee themed clothing items at the Totally Random Cart, they had to be mine. The top is very cute, it ties under the arms which is a little detail that really makes the shirt. It comes in several sizes and is just 25 linden. Also at the Totally Random Cart are these cute matching chucks. They are unrigged mesh so you can resize them, which means just about anyone could wear these. The shoes are also 25 linden.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Here are the details:

Hair – TRUTH HAIR Essena – variety
Head – CATWA HEAD Koura Bento

Top – Totally Random – Top *TR* fIRST cOFFEE TIED TOP – 25L @The Cart Sale

Spring Really Has Sprung!

FabFree: Spring Really Has Sprung!

Hello there Fabulouses!  It’s true – spring really has sprung as it’s the first day of spring today (SQUEEEEE), and it’s sprung inworld too, with The Wash’s Spring Has Sprung Cart Sale Event beginning today!  The streets are lined with spring themed displays by designers from across the grid, all priced with items between 10L and 50L.  Today in my blog post, I will be featuring a couple of clothing items by Shae’s Designs and decor by KK Home that you can find at the event… as well as a free gift by Lagom at The Liaison Collaborative.

My Springy Outfit

These adorable denim Misty Jean Shorts and April Tops are available at The Spring Has Sprung Event in eight different prints / colours each.  The tops are priced at 25L each and the shorts at just 10L each!  I know I was tempted to grab a few!!  I am wearing these items on Belleza Freya and they fit well, but hey are both also available in several mesh body fits as listed below.

Sizes Included:

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

The Decor

It’s not often I put together a scene and blog home and garden items.  I generally just go somewhere pretty and stand in it lol, but I was inspired by the spring decor by KK Home at The Spring Has Sprung Event to decorate a little balcony for this shot.  In my photo you’ll see the Tulip Planter Box, the Pussy Willow Vase and The Vintage Pitcher w/ Daffodils.  All three of those items are available for 25L at the event along with plenty of other spring and Easter decor.

Falling Flowers

In my photo you’ll see some pink blossoms and petals blowing in the wind.  This is Lagom’s Falling Flowers TLC Gift that you can pick up with your free The Liaison Collaborative group tag at The TLC Event!  I have attached it to my avatar for photography, but you could rez this item as decor too.  We have shown several of the group gifts available in this Anniversary round of The Liaison Collaborative – here’s a rundown if you missed them!

Stay Safe!

Stay Safe

I won’t bore you with my regular ramblings about the lack of warmth in RL, or the fact that I’m still trudging through slush on the daily.  Instead, I’ll just talk about the importance of water safety!  Make sure you’ve got a cute lifeguard keeping an eye on  you at all times, because ain’t nobody got time for no drowning!  What?  It’s true!

Upcycling is so Hot Right Now

You may have heard of the shop Upcycled before if you’re a freebie hunter like we are here on Fab Free!  They have a little inworld shop now where every item is completely free, from clothes all the way down to flowers, furniture and food.  I grabbed my cute little applier bikini and jean shorts there, as well as the lifeguard chair I’m sitting on!  You’ll find lots of great items to decorate with, so give it a little peek!  My clothes come with an Omega applier for easy wearing purposes!

More Bonbons!

Have you seen that Bonbon has a new group gift out for Fabulously Free in SL group members?  My little side ponytail is just so adorable and warm-weather ready that I can barely stand it.  It comes with an HUD to change to all sorts of pretty hair colours, and you can also change the colour of the scrunchie.  To grab your own, just join the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group, which is always FREE to join, making this cute hairstyle completely free!  Yaaaas!

Stay safe out there!

Clip Arts Store: SR Designs – 2 Free Houses on the Midnight Mania Boards!

Good morning Fabulouses!  This is a little bit different of a blog post from me!  I wanted to share news about these awesome little houses that are available by SR Designs at The Clip Arts Store for FREE in midnight mania boards when they lock down.

Slap them both!

I quite like the beachy Litoral SR House which is listed at 450L on marketplace, but the Tree SR, listed at 350L is quite nice too!  Both houses come furnished with animations.  I have slapped the board and can’t wait for mine to deliver tonight at midnight!  Currently they both lock down at 35, so you’ll need to get in early to participate!

Happy slapping, and good luck!
