Christmas Home Sweet Home

Christmas Home Sweet Home

Hey Hey FabFree! I hope y’all aren’t tired of hearing about freebies and Advent Calendars yet. I have to confess, I get a little frustrated with the Calendars. I never see what the day’s gift is till too late… then I have to pay for it or they don’t let you have it at all! I could say a few more things or mention a few shops… but this is a family friendly blog **grrrr**  ANYway this all leads me to my post today!

Trompe Loeil, one of my most fav home and garden designs has a wonderful Advent Calendar up for us! Yes, I know I just growled about the Calendars but this one is special. See, Trompe Loeil has set ALL of the twelve free gifts out for their 12 days of Christmas at once! It a HUNT! I love it. You can collect as many or as few as you want plus you get to wander the SIM ad have the fun of a hunt. So Cool!

Now, I won’t kid you… this isn’t the easiest of hunts. I pulled a few handfuls of hair out searching. But it’s not Twisted hunt tricky. There’s no decoys or anything like that. Here’s my big hint: Searching door to door. 😉

You have until Dec. 30th to get your hunt on. But if hunting isn’t your thing, Trompe Loeil also has two past years of gifts available for free as well. No group needed! SO Merry Christmas to us!

One quick note: Please read the instructions for the hunt. You need to pick up the free Hunt Hunt as well as the hunt gift boxes. Then you REZ the HUD on your property ( or a sandbox) then REZ each gift box beside the HUD. As you rez, you will be offered the prize via menu.

Hey gang,

As you know, The Arcade is one of those places I’ve been hitting up this week for goodies.  I’m loving all the fun goodies the designers have brought to this round.

This time, I have another Amitie pose for you, this includes the lights that wrap around you, the pose and the star!  So cute!  I feel so festive!  Amitie is only 50L a play and there are so many fun poses you can win.

My second Arcade goodie is this gorgeous winter themed build I am standing in.  This comes from Celeste, where you can find all sorts of magical bliss.  This was a rare and I just lucked out to get it!  There is also an outdoor gazebo version you can win when you play. (I added the trees) This is also only 50L a play.

Speaking of the trees, these are a free gift from 3D trees which has some lovely landscaping goodies.  They are a free gift and there is no group required.

I know there is just so much going on, you barely know where to turn!  But trust me when I say, you will want to go have a peek at The Arcade.  😉

Merry Jolly Everything!

Apple Fall Haul

Apple Fall Haul

Holeeee Crow, FabFree!! Black Friday has exploded onto the Grid today and one of my all time favorite designers has taken it to heart! We gotta hurry here cause the sale may only last a few hours or a day or two… we don’t know!

Apple Fall is having a HUGE sale on the Marketplace. Everything on the Marketplace is only 50L! EVERYTHING! Even the builds! If it’s on the Marketplace store it’s 50L. I found a few items for less than 50 and a lot of free gifts there too. In fact, every single thing in my picture is free!  Including the Skybox!

I had planned on blogging just all the amazing gifts then *BOOM* huge sale.  So let’s talk quickly about the Group Gifts. If you join the free Apple Fall Group and wander the store… you will find literally dozens of free gifts. Some are easy to find and say “Group Gift” but some are just scattered around the store. You need to mouse over them to see they’re free. Then pop up to the ‘Outlet’ shop and find even more free things and steeply discounted items.

whew, that’s a lot to take in… but get over to Apple Fall and shop your heart out!

Every item pictured – Apple FallFREE/0L – Free gifts for the free Apple Fall group

There’s No Place Like Home

Hey gang!  For today’s finds, I am taking you inside my humble abode, and also to our new Fab Free Headquarters!  So travel around the grid with me if you will!  We Fab Free sisters live and breathe freebies and deals so that means we use them in our little corners of the grid, just like y’all do!  We try to set a good example by *trying* to live frugally! (not always easy!  hee hee)

So, let’s get started, as I have a lot to show you.  Above is my kitchen table area, I did this with a kitchen set from Careless (I didn’t even put everything out!) that cost me only 49L.  It’s super cute and I added a couple of odds and ends from them too.  The poses are great too, really well made stuff!

Below is my living room.  My couch and chair are a set, also from Careless, but they are a group gift meaning they are free cause the group is free to join as well!  If this color isn’t your thing, you guessed it, she has other colors for 49L!  The cute Tulips on my mantle?  10L at Careless.  The little trees with lights are from Caro Designe on market and you can get them for 50L.

Below you can see I used the little trees from Caro in more than one place, they are just sooo pretty!  The pink Paris themed dresser with fairy lights?  That’s one of my creations and you can grab that at Shanti for only 50L!

decor_003

Here is another market find that I absolutely love, these little lantern lights from What Next.  You can grab these on their marketplace store for only 10L!  They are stunning, let me tell you!  You can of course put them anyplace you like, I strung them along my fence by the pool.

Lastly, I don’t know how many of you have had a chance to pop by and check out the new headquarters yet, but in keeping with the fab free spirit, the house we used is of course free.  It’s a free group gift from Greymoon Designs (who has adorable houses!  I live in one (and own several!  lol!), and the group is only 50L to join.  When you join, you can grab a bunch of cute houses on the group gifts wall and here is the one we used (C-Side Cottage):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

A quick peek at the inside (but go see it in person eh?):

(btw the umbrella shaped lamp is from LISP Bazaar and is only 50L on market!)

The landscaping I used is mostly from Lunaria and the trees with sparkles in them are both free group gifts from Lunaria and that group is free to join.  I love her stuff!

PS Don’t let Aline fool you, she did half of the amazing decorating too!  It was an awesome team effort!

Well there you have it gang, another Caroline style post from me chock full of fab free style goodness!

Baby Please Come Home

Baby Please Come Home
They’re singing Deck The Halls
But it’s not like Christmas at all
I remember when you were here
And all the fun we had last year

Staying Home for the Holidays

I know many of us are missing our nearest and dearest these days, but let’s not get too down about it all.  I often think about how lucky we are to have the technology to be able to see our family from afar, and I choose to focus on that.  The other thing that keeps me happy is the fact that so many designers are super generous, handing out amazing gifts.  Trompe L’Oeil have been consistently amazingly generous, and they’ve done it again, this time with the completely free Cecilia cottage.  It’s sooooo nice!  I’m totally going to pull up everything I have on my land to start over with this cute cottage.  At 53LI, it’s pretty light on the prims for the size and detail as well.  Head on over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore and click on the vendor just by the front doors, and it will be yours for FREE!  There’s also a sweet bench for free too.

On the 6th Day of Christmas…

I’ve been harping on incessantly about how Christmas isn’t over yet, and I stand by my rantings.  Today is the 6th day of Christmas and Lybra brought to me…. an awesome gift calendar!  for each of the 12 days of Christmas, they’re giving their group members (the group is free to join) a new gift.  I am showing off day 1’s shoes (super awesome platforms sized for Belleza, Kupra, Legacy, Maitreya, Slink and Tonic) and day 3, which is a classic grey denim shift dress.  Lybra are so generous with their goodies – you’ll find lots of group gifts on the wall too, as well as some lucky chairs (and a FabFree gift too!).
UPDATE:  Lybra is back – Enjoy!
