Into the Woods

Snapshot9_001f

Oh, Christmas Tree?

When Carson IM’d me last night to ask if I could come and help him with his Christmas tree, I assumed that he just needed some help with the decorating. Or perhaps he needed help picking out a tree at the pixel tree store.

Wrong.

I tp’d over to Carson’s location, and found myself in the middle of the woods, where he had just finished cutting down a huge tree. Apparently, he needed my help to wrangle the tree onto his sled so the dogs could haul it home.

Lesson Learned: When it comes to Carson, never assume.

Thankfully, we managed to load the tree onto his sled fairly quickly. Although, at one point, he unintentionally de-rendered the tree, and had to log out and back in as I waited in the woods wondering if there were any pixel bears around (there weren’t). We managed to get the tree back to Carson’s place, where I accidentally fell out of his skybox and into the water. At that point, I decided that I’d had enough excitement for one night, and let Carson finish up on his own.

And from the look of things, he made out pretty well.

As for me, I’m still picking the pine needles out of my hair (and a few other places). 😛

Last Chance Advents

Before heading out on the tree adventure, I threw on this festive layered jacket from GizzA. I think it’s meant to be worn as a dress, but I decided to add a pair of jeans… which, in hindsight, was a very good idea, since I wound up sitting on a pine tree. The jacket comes in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with alpha layer), as well as for Belleza Freya and Isis, Maitreya Lara, and SLink Original and Hourglass mesh bodies.

I picked up these cute boots by fri.day at The Arcade. This pair came from the gacha machine (50L per play), but as Love mentioned you can find a free version in a different color under the Christmas tree. The boots are resizeable, and should work with whichever mesh body (or not) you are wearing.

Oh, and the hair! Analog Dog makes some of my most favorite curly ‘dos on the grid, and when I saw this hairstyle on Love, I just knew that I had to have it. If you HURRY, you can still pick it up in the KittyCatS Advent Calendar (not sure which day)!

Another advent calendar to race over to ASAP is the one at Snowpaws. You can’t see them unless you zoom waaay in close, but I am wearing a pair of Christmas bulb earrings and an ornament necklace from the Snowpaws advent calendar (again, I’m not sure which day, but all of the days were still available at the time of this post).

Finally, this cute dog sled pose prop is by Come Soon Poses. It includes the tree, the sled, about 6 dogs, and all of the scenery you see here (and a bunch that you don’t). Carson picked it up as one of the free group gifts for the Cosmopolitan Advent Calendar – hurry over and you can grab this one, too!

(Hopefully next time, Carson will pick up a free CAR with a heater instead of a dog sled!)

Merry Christmas, everyone! 🙂

Lovely Weather for a Sleigh Ride Together With You

Lovely Weather for a Sleigh Ride
Happy Holidays, Fabulouses!  After a day of shopping at the Cart Wash sale, Ripley and I celebrated the arrival of winter with a sleigh ride at Pandora Resort.  The snowy landscape reminded me of the white Christmases I enjoyed when I was growing up.  Ripley had a blast trying to retrieve snowballs that I tossed his way….and he kept losing them in the snowbank!

Chic Sweater Set

My golden-hued sweater from Classy Chics was one of my Cart Wash discoveries.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, it’s a great place to pick up some budget-friendly goodies for yourself.  The sale runs until January 4th, so you still have time to scoop up some finds… all for only 10L each! Featuring a bright, argyle pattern in a short, cropped jacket style, this long-sleeved knitted top coordinates with the undershirt beautifully.  The texture on the white top, and its cute bow are simply adorable!  If gold is not your color, the set also includes more seasonal red and green options.  The tops are all Maitreya appliers, and worked beautifully with my Maitreya Lara mesh body.  These white capris, also a Maitreya applier, are part of the Classy Chic package from the Cart Wash.  For only 10L, you get a complete outfit!  Happy dance time!
Angel Earrings

Silver and Gold

‘Tis the season for silver and gold, and Luminesse has you covered with these exquisite angel Christabelle Yvelle earrings for only 10L at the Cart Wash sale.  With ruby centers, golden accents, crystal gems, and silvery wings, these delicate baubles reflect the spirit of the season.  I just love a pair of dangling earrings, don’t you?

Sweets for Santa

Ripley and I are off to finish baking cookies to set out for Santa tonight.  After the “Cookie Incident,” in which a certain canine, who shall remain nameless, decided to sample from the Big Guy’s platter, we have some catching up to do.  I hope you enjoy a relaxing evening, and would like to wish Happy Holidays to those of you who celebrate.  Until next time, dear readers, happy shopping!

~ Kat (and Ripley, the Cookie Inspector)

T – 2 Days

Snapshot_004

Hey FabFree! As you can see my puppy made it home safe and sound after his walkabout to Serena’s and then his untimely abduction by Carson.  He’s exhausted poor thing, not even enough energy to play with his favourite ball, but I made him pose for the photo so you could see he was returned safely!  I’m sure once he wakes up, he’ll be ready for another adventure.  Who knows where he will wind up this afternoon!

Running Out of Advent Time!

There is only a couple more days to take advantage of all of the free gifts in the Kittycats Advent Calendar and if you haven’t been by, you can head down there and pick up all of the previous days.  This calendar is filled with sometimes multiple gifts each day by different designers across the grid.  Now…  I can’t remember which day I got this awesome gift by Rebel Hope, but I wanted to share the news with you so you know it’s in there … somewhere!  This gift by Rebel Hope includes the dress and boots shown as well as a headband and a hat (not shown).

Dress & Boot Sizes:

  • XXS – L mesh w/ alpha layer
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza Freya, Isis, Venus

It’s the Truth, I tell you!

My hairstyle today is courtesy of Truth who put their Irena and Irenka hairstyles under the holiday Pompom hats and sent them out to the inworld Truth group.  This is similar to the previous hair gift that Sheidey has been showing off in her posts [HERE], and [HERE], but with a holiday pom pom hat ;).  A full selection of colour huds for hair and texture change for the hat is included.

Also in Truth  group notices right now, you’ll find the Bangs Collection which is a great way to add a little versatility to any of your Truth hair!  I am wearing the Swept Right Narrow bangs with my Irenka hair today and it really changed up the look.  There are several different types of bangs (or fringe as some of you around the world call it) and as like the PomPom Hat gift, there is a full selection of colour huds!  I can’t wait to try it with the other kajillion Truth hairstyles I have been collecting.  It will be like new hair all over again!  There is a fee of 350L to join currently, but it’s worth it!

Winter Decor

Now this bench with my little squirrel friend is another one of the Le Poppycock Animal Friends  poses from the gacha offering at The Liason Collaborative (50L per play), but also… sitting beside the bench you’ll see a very nice winter décor piece by Dixie Dandelion called Pilling Lantern & Gulls w/ Shell that I picked up for 10L at The Wash Cart Sale.  This item is transferrable so that you can even gift it to a friend if you like!

Candy Cane Wishes

All I want for Christmas is You…

I took another stroll around the The Biannual Sale @ The Wash Sim and found a few more items for the guys. From the Jz for Men cart, I found the Santa’s Naughty List Shirt. It reads “All I want for Christmas is Santa’s Naughty List”. Honestly, who can disagree with that? (EDIT: A reader reminded me that this shirt and the one listed below are both available in women’s styles as well)  I matched it with the Distressed Work Jeans from the cart provided by Dark Water Designs. These jeans also come with shoes (not shown). Both these items are just $10L each.

Candy is Dandy, but Liquor is Quicker…

Another find with holiday flair from Jz for Men is the Dear Santa Shirt. This shirt describes me perfectly this year…. and again is just $10L at the Cart SaleARGRACE has a Winter group gift available until the end of the year. The Santa Hat 2016 is available for both men and women and has a color changing HUD to get that perfect hair shade. The gift is FREE to members and the group is FREE to join.

Tiar - Xmas Snow Globe - Home For The Holiday's Hunt

A Christmas Card to One and All…

First, I want to send out Holiday greetings to all the FabFree designers and readers. You are truly why we do this. And special warm wishes to my new FabFree family… Thank you all for welcoming me back with open arms and helpful advice. I couldn’t do it without you.

Someone put Baby in a Snow Globe…

While working through the Home For The Holiday’s Hunt, I found the Xmas Snow Globe at Tiar. This snow globe has 4 animations and is adjustable to become your own favorite ornament. This hunt gift is only $1L. While I was a Tiar, I tapped the Midnight Mania Board and won the Unisex Santa Cargo Pants. I’m glad I won those FREE cargos, because it matched perfectly with the Merry Christmas Red Standing Collar Shirt another Home For The Holiday’s Hunt gift from K&A Design. As with all the gifts on this hunt, you can search it out for just $1L. If you don’t want to search, you can buy all the gifts on this hunt for $25L each next to the Home For The Holiday’s Hunt sign at each hunt location.

Snow Day

B&T POE9

 

REALLY? This couldn’t have happened during the work week?

Today was the first snow of the year and it HAD to happen on the weekend. Just my luck! I decided to make snowmen out of lemonade snow. I put on the Gray Desert Sweater and Cargo Pants I happened to find at B&T Mesh Studio while making my way through the Peace on Earth Hunt. As always all the gifts on this hunt are FREE.

Balancing Act

One of Carson’s little helpers tipped me off about a great gift on the KittyCatS Advent Board. December 3rd’s gift is a pair of blue and gray SL Balance Shoes made by Hoorenbeek. Have no fear that December 3rd has passed. The gift is still available as are all the gifts revealed so far. The advent board is FREE, no group to join.

I’ll Make You a Snow Man an an an an ….

Also found on the Peace on Earth Hunt was this FREE Peace on Earth Winter Scene from PixelArt Pose Props.  This prop comes with several animations for the swing and building a snowman. Here’s to hoping the next snow will score me a day off of work.

Back Against the Wall

Prism

The Work Week Cometh

I thought I’d get one more post in before the work week begins (and very little time to blog). I joined the group for FREE at Prism for Men and scored the Jeremy Outfit as the group gift. Astrid previously posted it here. This mesh outfit includes the shirt and pants with accompanying alphas AND a HUD to change each to four different colors. (4 pants x 4 shirts = 16 different outfit combinations).

Last Minute Hunting

There is still time left to find items in the Fall ’16 MenStuff Hunt. All items on this hunt are $0L – $1L.  I found the Men’s Classic Checkerboard Sneakers at Kingbal Stores for FREE all it just took a little searching. I also found some poses from Pics & Poses for FREE. I really need to update my collection.

Like an Anchor Around My Neck

Also on the MenStuff Hunt, I found this FREE Gold Anchor Necklace at ELYSIUM. The necklace also come in silver if gold isn’t your thing. It’s off to work, I’ll post when I can.

 

It’s good to be back!
