Simply Fabulous Free and Under L$75 Finds in Second Life – Since 2007


It’s Fall Y’all!

It's Fall, Y'all!

Ok, it’s officially Fall now, y’all!  It’s the season of warm colours, falling leaves, and so many lovely delights.  I love decorating for the Autumn, as is evidenced by all the fall decor I found in my inventory!  Are you ready to collect some more for your own pile of decorations?  Let’s do it!

House Proud

Ok, so Trompe L’Oeil is back to offering an awesome free gifts in the spirit of Stay at Home, and I couldn’t be more excited.  This amazing house can be yours for free, no need to join a group!  Just head over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore, and buy the house for 0L.  You’ll also find some lovely chairs there too (you can just see it on the porch in my photo), which are great for indoor or outdoor settings.  So awesome!  Now, I’m not sure exactly how long this house will be available as the Stay at Home club is closing in just 4 days.  However, Trompe L’Oeil’s Flickr account tells me it will be out for a few weeks.  Go get it!

Welcome Fall!

The pretty Autumn-themed letter blocks you see in front of the house are the latest group gift at Kraftwork.  They are just so lovely!  You can spell out anything you like with these blocks, as there are letters, numbers, symbols and even just plain blocks in wood or with the wreath design.  What a cool gift!  The Kraftwork group is free to join, and you’ll find plenty of group gifts on their wall.  Have fun!

Time for a PSL, methinks!

Gardening Gals

Gardening Gals

It’s officially Summer now, and that means that it’s time to dig in and get some planting done.  Me and Pru and ready for a bit of planting and gossiping, which will clearly be followed by some lemonade on the porch.   We’re getting in touch with nature again!  Hooray for the summertime!

Which Wood?

Witchwood (aka Oubliette and Petite Mort) are back on the hunting circuit with their very own Summer Festival hunt!  It’s filled with lovely summery, slightly boho outfits that will have you feeling like you’re in touch with nature before you know it!  The items are all priced from 10 – 20L and can be mixed and matched very nicely.  You can see which items Pru and I have got on in the credits below, and I’ve added the hunt key so you can see what’s on offer!  The Summer Festival hunt at Witchwood is running until July 5th!

Home Sweet Home

The lovely house Pru and I are hanging out in front of is the latest Stay at Home Club gift from Trompe L’Oeil!  To get it, just head over to their landing point and pay 0L.  The chairs on the front porch are also available for free there, and they look so inviting that I don’t know how much gardening we two will get done in the end!  As we often say in SL…you can never have too many houses!  And when they’re free…one just can’t resist!

Houseboats Galore

Free houseboats!

Free Houseboats!

You know what’s cooler than a free house? A free house that can stay on water. I love houseboats and I just found a whole load of free ones at The Workshop, which are all free compliments of the Stay at Home Club.

In-World Boats

The first stop you will want to go to get in on this offer is The Workshop‘s in-world store. On the wall with the Stay at Home Club sign they have three houseboats out for free: The Seabass, The Mullet (seen in the photo above), and the Blue Pearl Houseboat.

Marketplace Houseboats!

You can also grab a few houseboats by this creator for free on their marketplace store. You can get the Trout boat here, the Blue Pearl here and the Mullet boat here, which is the one I am also showcasing in my photograph.

In total, there are four houseboats in total to get for free from The Workshop between their in-world store and their marketplace.

Rocking the Casbah

Rocking the Casbah

Hey Fab Free, I’ve got a story for you. If you’ve ever lived with someone, a roommate, a significant other, a sibling, whomever, you’ve probably walked in on some moments and thought “I wish I had a camera right now.” Well thank you technology, I had one when I walked in on Blue rocking out like there was an episode of Soul Train happening in our Livingroom. Really, it was a little bit Footloose, and a little bit Risky Business, with a dash of Saturday Night Fever complete with mood lighting and a killer stage outfit. So I did what any girlfriend would do, I took photos and posted them on Social Media.

Aside from the good giggle, and a bit of eye-candy, there is a freebie aspect to this post I promise. You too can have your very own Livingroom disco dance party with a little help from the Fab Free Group Gift Listing, and few Stay at Home Club gifts. Stay with me and I’ll tell you about each of them, and like always there will be a full list of credits at the end.

BYRNE

There’s something awesome about a man being confident enough to rock a shimmery chevron suit. The shiny bold jacket and matching pants Blue has on are the free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by BYRNE. It has all the style and fun of a custom outfit with non of the high-end cost. To get yours, wear your Fab Free group tag (the group is free to join) and click the gift vendor at BYRNE.

Sizes Included: Belleza, Signature, Slink

Z.O.E.

Our stylish skybox is a free Fabulously Free in SL group gift by Z.O.E. It’s a great space with detailed natural rock and wood textures that give it a modern cabin sort of feel. I’ve added. the vendor ad below so you can get a better look at it. To get your copy just wear your Fab Free group tag and click the gift vendor at Z.O.E.

Casanova Store

Blue’s amazing dance moves are thanks in part to yet another Fab Free group gift. Fabulously Free in SL group members can help themselves to a free disco ball dance animation chimera kit gift at Casanova Store. While not shown in the photo, the disco ball/chimera kit has quite a few preloaded dances, the ability to add your own dances, and is menu driven.

Anna’s Nest 

The cool water feature in the background is not only an awesome conversation piece for any setting, it happens to be free. This is a Stay at Home Club gift by Anna’s Nest. It’s slightly tinted in my photo. The piece is modifiable, allowing you to customize it in some ways to suit your space and style.

Stay at Home Club Gift

The Green Door 

The sofa and chair come from The Green Door, and are part of their free Stay at Home Club gift. The full set includes a natural wood coffee table, and a rug. This set is copy and mod so you can rez out multiples, which I think is important with furniture and décor.

Myth

Our Livingroom rug is another freebie for Stay at Home Club. This one comes from Myth and comes in a 3 pack of different floor rugs in subtle neutral colors.

Thanks for reading, I hope you have fun with these awesome freebies. Never be afraid to dance, even if it’s by yourself. Also, a special thanks to Blue for the idea in the first place.

Create Beauty Around You

Create Beauty Around You

Happy Monday, Fab Free!  With the new week comes new opportunities for dreaming, hoping and imagining!  I’m enjoying a warm breeze and thinking about all the ways I can make the world a beautiful place.  Seems like a tall order sometimes, but we can all contribute to the magic of life through the things that we create.

Starry Eyed

Mangula are usually very generous with their gifts, and today I got all excited about the latest subscriber gift.  The Summer Party set is a riotous collection of awesome items that can be worn in so many ways.  This gift comes with a bodysuit, lingerie, the star-dappled dress, the socks in three lengths and the booties!  Oof!  You can have so much fun with this one!  To get it, just make sure you click the subscriber unit at Mangula, which costs 100L to join, then you’ll gain access to a ridiculous amount of gifts, including this newest set!

Trompe L’Oeil Does it Again!

Over at Trompe L’Oeil there’s a new Stay at Home gift, which is insanely generous.  This full cabin, as well as the chair and ottoman you can see behind me are all free for everyone – no group join required!  I think it’s time to change up my living quarters in SL again, just for the fun of it!  The gifts over at Trompe L’Oeil for the Stay at Home Club change up often, so you’d better go grab it!

Keep on making things beautiful, Fab Free!

The Treehouse of My Dreams

The Treehouse of My Dreams
I love making discoveries in SL.  Usually, discoveries for me means something awesome, and quite often free.  I was making my “Stay at Home Club” rounds the other day, picking up some new gifts.  I stopped off over at Loggin’ Off Homes, as they have a cute little cottage for free.  While I was there, what did I come across, but…

A Free Treehouse!

Oh man.  I’ve always wanted a treehouse in SL, for like…ages and ages and ages.  I could never find one that was just right for me.  They often bore a hefty price tag, or their land impact was through the roof.  This group gift from Loggin’ Off Homes is competely free (I didn’t even have to join the group, I just clicked on the sign that says “Group Gift”, and it was delivered to me) and has an LI of just 37.  It features a little ladder to climb up, a second floor, and even a balcony.  So awesome!  Head on over to Loggin’ Off Homes, because I’m not sure how long this little playhouse will be available.

Enjoy!

My Happy Place

Your Happy PlaceHappy Saturday! I have a great gift to share with you from Dench Designs, as well as some info about other freebies and promotions going on at their store right now. 

Your Happy Place

If you need a sweet, small, and compact place to quarantine in-world, this cozy caravan by Dench Designs is the perfect solution, and it is a free group gift. It includes a kitchen, tv, and furniture with great animations included. I decided to spend some alone time and decompress in here, with a bottle of wine of course, which is one of the many accessories included with the caravan. You can even hang out with friends in this little caravan if you want to. After all, the laws of social distancing don’t need to apply to SL! This is an excellent gift!

More Freebies at Dench 

Make sure you also grab the free Easter gift in the notices of the Dench Designs group and all of their free group gifts available at their in-world store! There is also a free fireplace gift you can receive in exchange for filling out a suggestions survey near the entrance of the store, a free stay at home gift (a green chair and end-table), a free potted daisy plant and lamp you can receive for answering a question in nearby chat at their front desk about how you found the store ,a free toilet roll throne, and free Lucky Chair and MM board games to participate in around the store. We can certainly all agree that Amanda Dench is a VERY generous designer!

Have a wonderful day, Fab Free!

Welcome to NY

FabFree Post: Welcome to NY

Welcome to NY

Ladies and gentlemen, please put your trays in the upright positions we will be landing in NYC soon. Your cars will be waiting for you outside where they will take you directly to your penthouse suite. There you will find a spacious two-bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, full kitchen and large open living room overlooking the beautiful city of NY.

I logged in this morning to Onsu‘s FREE “Downtown” Skybox Subscriber gift which made my interior decorator heart jump for joy, while the other part of me cried a little because I just finished putting the final touches on my last house. Such is the way of SecondLife. I rather enjoyed the elevator entrance along with the entry hall included in the build. It was a lovely touch to add on. Also, the floors/walls/beams are customizable along with the city view itself so if you are a fan of light flooring or dark woods this is a great find!

Contemplation

Contemplation There have been so many lovely free builds recently inworld, that it’s giving me the itch to start decorating again.  There’s something relaxing about letting your decorating itch run wild in SL.  It can sometimes be fiddly editing things around the room, but in the end it’s so nice to have somewhere to call home inworld.  And when you get sick of it, pick it all up and start over.

Hisa has a House!

Hisa are giving their group members this adorable little “English Garden” shed.  It’s just so sweet and covered in riotous vines that I knew I had to have it right away.  It’s the perfect spot for thinking, or maybe painting!  Or maybe reading…or…perhaps just being.  I’m contemplating the day in my own little world, and I’m sure you’ll be just as relaxed as I am when you get yours.  Speaking of which, to get it, just join the Hisa group for 1L, then click on the vendor.  How very sweet!

Posing with a Posie

La Vie en Pose is still continuing, and as I mentioned before, each booth has a free giftie for members of their free-to-join group.  I stopped by the Sweet Art booth, and they have this very lovely sitting pose which comes complete with a dasiy for you to contemplate the mysteries of the world.  Or you know, look cute and stuff.  La Vie en Pose is open until April 25th!

Have a relaxing day, Fab Free!
