Al Fresco

Fresco

Greetings, fabulous readers! I’m dining “al fresco” today with some free home and garden finds from the Finders, Keepers St. Patrick’s Day Hunt. I also threw in a few fun group gifts for good measure. ūüôā

St. Patrick’s Day Hunt items in the top photo:

  • Roawenwood –¬†Farmhouse Rustic Dining Table & Chairs,¬†Irish Stew and Irish Soda Bread
  • Apple Fall¬†– Argentinian Malbec¬†and Wine Glasses (included, not shown: a decanter of whiskey)

Group gifts in the top photo:

  • RaindaleWall Clock, Candlesticks, Tangerine Cake, and the Winter Rug
  • The Little BranchGolden Birch Trees (left side of photo;¬†the tree with the white trunk)

The trees from The Little Branch are really lovely. They’re animated – meaning they gently sway in the virtual breeze – and you can click to change them with the seasons. Also in the folder is a little mesh hill, and the Buffalo Grass shown here (green and winter versions for both are included).

St. Patrick’s Day Hunt items in the lower photo:

A New York State of Mind

New York State of Mind

Hello, fabulous readers! If you’re looking for a place to live with a bit of a¬†retro feel, then I’ve got the spot for you! This beautiful, New York studio apartment can be yours for the low, low price of FREE! ūüėÄ

But first, a bit about the furnishings.

Fancy Decor offers a new group gift each month, and ALL of the past gifts are still available! The glass console table you see here is the most recent gift. Other gifts pictured here are the chair, lamp, bell ornament, picture frame, and the clasp boxes under the table. Just join the Fancy Decor in-world group, and these – plus many more – gorgeous home furnishings will be yours!

The artwork you see on the walls are free gifts from The Loft Furniture. They’ve been around for a while, but I thought they¬†added the perfect art deco look to this apartment. You can find the gifts HERE, but in the event that you get tp’d back to the landing point, you’ll need to walk to the west side of the store to find them. Alternatively, you could do an area search for items that are 0L. There are 4 art deco posters available as gifts.

Please keep in mind that The Loft is a large store with many items so it may take a while to load all the textures. Sometimes teleporting out and back in helps speed things up.

nyapt3_001f

Ok, now for the skybox details.

Apple Fall has quietly set this cozy New York Apartment skybox as a free gift. But in order to get it for free, you need to follow these directions:

  • When you arrive at the Apple Fall store landing spot, walk straight ahead towards the mainstore to the teleporter.
  • Click the teleporter and select “New York Apartment” from the blue menu.
  • Hop on the teleporter.
  • When you arrive at the demo skybox, walk around the corner and click the big “Buy Me” tag to purchase for 0L.

I don’t know how long the skybox will be available for free, so if you want it, don’t delay!

New York State of Mind

You don’t like brick? That’s ok!

Click on the back wall (the whitish part you see here) to change the textures. There are 3 different versions available, as well as a “blank” version so you can add your own textures.

Size is about 15 x 12 meters. 10 LI.

This is a cute little apartment with a cool view of the New York skyline, made with the quality you’d expect from Apple Fall. ūüôā

Enjoy!

Hey, Turkey!

Hey, Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving, fabulous readers!¬†ūüėÄ

I walked outside this morning and found Mr. Tom waddling around on my front porch. I don’t think he realizes how dangerous it is for him to be out and about, today of all days. If he doesn’t wind up on somebody’s dinner table, then I’m pretty sure my neighbor’s cat (lurking in the background) has his own ideas for him!

Company Ready

I’m all dressed up and ready for the Fab Family to come over for Thanksgiving dinner!

My festive attire is the latest group gift from Ever An’ Angel. The City Lights Bronze outfit is a one-piece mesh pants and top¬†and comes in the following sizes:

  • Fitmesh XS-L with an alpha layer
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

The top is kind of an asymmetrical scarf look that’s cut low in the back and shows a peek of side-boob on the right. Both top and pants are nicely textured in the perfect colors for a fall dinner party.

The Ever An’ Angel in-world group is currently free to join. Also, the Black Friday sale has already started at the mainstore, and everything is marked down to 150L until 9:00 p.m. SLT on Friday evening.

Hey, Turkey

Gacha Gifts

Vendors at the Gacha Garden have set out some really lovely FREE gifts this month, and I was happy to pick up some pretty jewelry items to go with my new outfit:

  • AvaWay has set out the Yellow Sindy Ring for Maitreya Bento hands. It’s a collection of 4 dainty rings for the ring finger of the right or left hand, and it comes in a regular or midi version (I’m wearing midi).
  • BREATHE has set out the October Bracelet. It comes in gold, silver, black, and rose, and includes a resizer menu.
  • The Pretty Pretty Poses¬†that you see here are the gift from KoKoLoReS. 3 Bento poses with mirrors are included in the box.

You do need to join the free Gimme Gacha in-world group in order to pick up the gifts.

Hello, Free French Manicure

While not a Gacha Garden gift, I wanted to point out that my pretty French manicure (of which I didn’t get a good picture) is a free gift from Hello Dave. There are 2 palettes of absolutely-free French manicure colors set out, and you don’t even have to join a group to get them. The nails are compatible with Slink and Maitreya hands, as well as others using the Omega system.

Oh, and don’t forget to pop on your Fab Free group tag while you’re there and pick up the gorgeous new gift for Fab Free group members!

Ok… I’m off to finish up dinner and shoo away Mr. Tom before the neighbor’s cat gets him. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving (to all who celebrate today). We at Fab Free are so thankful to have YOU as a reader! ūüôā

These Boots Are Made For… Kittens

Puppies & Kitties

Uninvited Guests

Unlike at Edi’s place, I think it may literally be raining cats and dogs at my house!

I stumbled down the stairs this morning to make coffee, only to find Finnoula staring out the front door at the strangest sight. My neighbor’s Corgi puppies had gotten loose (again) and were sitting on my porch curiously watching two kittens slumbering away in my new boots. It was all very sweet and surreal… until Finn’s protective nature got the better of her and she started to bark, setting off a chain reaction of puppy yapping, scared-kitty screeching, fur flying… what a way to start the morning! ūüėĮ

Cuteness Overload

JIAN makes some of the cutest animals on the grid, and I was delighted to receive these sweet kitten-booties as the latest group gift. Two versions are included in the box: one for wearing, and this adorbs decor version for rezzing (only 2 LI).¬†The wearable version has a wide-awake kitty on each boot, and not only do they ride along, but they even move and meow (which you can turn off, once you’ve had enough of that)! Both versions have a texture-change menu¬†so you can choose from 3 boot colors, 9 kitty colors, and resize to your liking.

As with all JIAN products, these kitty boots are amazingly well detailed. Best part? The group is FREE to join¬†so you can pick up the kitty boots as well as¬†several other group gifts that are still available. ūüôā

Make Me A Sammich

Snapshot_003Hey there Fabulouses! I hope you enjoyed your weekend ūüôā¬† It’s been fff f f f fffreeezing here over the past couple of days and there is nothing better for it than a warm snuggly sweater and comfort food, so I am following suit here in Second Life as well!

Fishy Strawberry¬†is where I found my red turtleneck.¬† It actually comes in a set of two labelled Christmas Turtlenecks as a freebie,¬†and while the other white tree/gift printed sweater is better suited for the holidays, ¬†I think the red one I am showing off today could be worn any old cold day.¬† The mesh Moto Jeggings are also by Fishy Strawberry and are available¬†for free¬†instore.¬† I have blogged these before when they were a gift for The Chapter Four’s Anniversary [HERE], but if you missed them previously – you can snag them now!

This picnic basket is a free gift at :Poche and comes with a rezzable and hold version.  When you touch the basket it gives you a steaming animated sandwich.

I should also mention the Distressed Lace Table I’m sat upon because it is not only adorable and shabby chic, but a free group gift that you can pick up after you join the free Scarlet Creative inworld group.

Snapshot_001Hi there Fabulouses! Check out my hot new pants!!¬† Tres Blah just¬†added¬†a brand new group gift to their VIP¬† Shelf at their shop that includes¬†a five pack of these very sexy/cute vinyl mesh pants. These pants come in standard mesh sizes, maitreya and slink.¬†¬†There is a 100L¬†fee to join this group, but I would¬†have paid much more for this sweet fatpack, and the other gifts in the shelf are a real bonus!¬†¬†*¬† Thank you Pru, for giving me a heads up about this gift!! ‚̧

The furnishings in my photo (aside from the piles of books which are by Apple Fall), are all pieces of the Boho Bedroom Gacha Set¬†by Luas that you can play for at¬†The¬†OMG Gacha Event for just 50L per play.¬† these items are vibrantly textured, and very low prim.¬† This is the whole set aside from the cabinet which I couldn’t quite squeeze into the photo, but it’s just as cute!

If You Can’t Beat Them, Join Them.

Snapshot_002¬†I don’t now whether to scream to just join these mice in their party!¬† While I am making up my mind, I’ll tell you about the sweet freebies I have displayed in my photo today.

Apple Fall is celebrating their new sim with a very generous offering of free gifts for¬†everyone!¬† Very close to the landing point on the new Apple Fall sim you will find the Key Table, Pediment Frame w/ Pillar Sketch, Slipcover Chair, Key Lamps, and Charlotte’s Pears all priced at 0L.

My Erika Blouse can be found as a free group gift at Egoxentrikax after joining their free inworld group.  VIPs will receive this summery blouse in both pink and blue versions.  I matched it up with a pair of capris by Blueberry that I had in my inventory, but I can see this going well with a skirt or a pair of shorts too.

That’s all my news for the day – Have a good one!
