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


Squirrel!

squirrel!_017

Well gang,

It is nearly time to say goodbye to autumn once again.  Unlike some of the other girls, I am *not* looking forward to winter (how long until spring???), in as much as I relate to Elsa, the cold *does* bother me, and it is not my friend.  Too, the holidays are difficult for me, so I spend nearly every year sort of holding my breath until they finally pass and it’s January and I can breathe a bit better.  Meantime, I am helping these little friends get ready for *their* winter, which is rough for them in a different way!

So I spent some time perusing marketplace and found this stunning little dress for you, it’s got a HUD with some gorgeous autumn (and non autumn) colors to choose from.  The very best part is, it’s free!  It does only fit Maitreya but it is really adorable!

Oh and I took this photo at the lovely Mystic Dreamers Valley Mall.  Our very own Juli has been doing the landscaping there and if you love to take photos, its a great area for some picturesque scenes!  It will be autumn there for another day or so and then I think Juli said winter was due to arrive!  Either way its a lovely place for photos or for an afternoon out with friends!

Hope everyone in the US will enjoy their Thanksgiving Holiday today!  Eat, drink and be fabulous y’all!

owl_003

Hey there gang!

It’s been a rough week or so for a few of us Fab Free sisters, but there is excitement now on the horizon and, though you can’t tell from my photo, I am doing a HAPPY dance!  This was actually taken before the excitement commenced so maybe I wasn’t all that pleased, still, it’s not every girl who gets to chill with a friend owl!

So as most of you know by know via all the buzz that our most recent Fab Free Hunt is in full swing, and wow!  It’s really swinging!  The designers have gone all out, and the hunters are already having a blast!  I even snuck in a chance to do some hunting and now I am here to show you my finds from one of my favorite places (all the unicorn stuff!  Gotta love unicorn themed outfits!  Well, I do anyway!) Pink Cream Pie.

They have two hunt pries, which you find to get the top and bottoms for this cute atumn-y outfit.  They are 5L each.  They fit:

  • Freya
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

This hunt is all the rage right now so if you haven’t started the Fab Free Fallen Leaves and Frost Hunt, what are ya waiting for!  😀  All the info can be found on our hunt page here.

Flying Monkeys and Cute Fall Outfits

coming soon

Hey gang!

Both real life and second life feel like they are pulling me in ten directions each. Literally, I feel like the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. Remember when the flying monkeys pulled him apart and threw him all over the place? Well right now both lives are my flying monkeys. Anyone got any flying monkey spray handy? (and how many times can I say flying monkeys in one post, eh?)

Whimsical Delights

At least I snuck in a little bit of time to wander the magical pathways of the Secret Garden Event. Alas my friends, I spent far more than was wise, but there were so so many whimsical delights waving to me from those Nextup machines. Saying “I’m next, look how wonderful I am, you know you must bring me home!” Well, who am I to argue?

So I put on this cute outfit from the MOoH! nextup and headed out for a walk. I’ve got the key for you below so you can see the entire batch of goodies. I wanted to wear the knee socks but for the life of me I could not figure out my layers in my mesh body. Sometimes I can get them to work and sometimes, well, let’s just say it ain’t pretty. So my apologies to Dalraida over at MOoH!

This outfit fits maitreya only but it comes with everything, even the hat (you have to get each item in the machine though and mix and match them). I fell in love with it the minute I saw it and since I am homeless at the moment, I’ve been traveling around in this and had several compliments as well as people asking me where I got the outfit.  It’s 50L per sale and there’s also a copy/mod fatpack at a discount.

More soon gang!  Hope you are staying toasty warm where ever in the world you are!

Lucky Number 13!

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang,

I’m getting ready to celebrate my 13th rezz day here in second life. (10.23)  I still can’t believe it’s been 13 years!  Why I was still a spring chicken back then!

How I Came to Second Life

We were in the process of selling our house and getting ready to move, and most things had been packed up, but I had my trusty little laptop.  I don’t know where I was reading but I saw a mention of a virtual world called Second Life.  I remember thinking, I wonder what a virtual world looks like!  I had time to kill and my curiosity to lead me and in I dove.

I chose a perfectly practical name thank you, thinking that’s what you did in a virtual world (had I known better I might have called myself willowmoon or something dreamy like that.) and I’m only just checking it out anyway.  I’ll probably only try it once or twice…

My earliest memories are of a lot of nekkid newbies jumping on each other and I was bemused.  Little horny nekkid animated people.  huh.  Imagine my surprise a few days later when I realized they had anatomically correct ones too! (the boys, I mean)  That was like Woah!  ok then!  lol

I wandered off to other areas and I found a house that was like a big log cabin and always empty so being clueless as I was, I would crash there (I was a squatter!  LOL), it was so cute.  I didn’t realize people had private residences, heck I dont know what I thought!

I started trying to put my avi together, back then, there were not nearly as many wonderful freebies as there are now, and what there was, wasn’t nearly as well made!  (The Free Dove was actually around but it was much smaller than it is now!) I took some photos outside that house….  Want to see noob me?  I warn you, it’s not pretty!  But I did get myself some decent hair somehow.  For back then anyway.

The grid has come a long long way since 2008 my friends.  !!!!!  This photo was taken right outside the cute house I used to crash in, I loved the little blanket area and the sparkly rainbows.  Second Life seems so much more real now, with mesh and things look so much better!

13 Years Later!

So now lets talk about my new photo (stark contrast!!!) cause I’ve got an adorbs outfit for you from Lunar.  My shorts, top and jacket are all part of the Chanty outfit which is a free group gift at Lunar (I love their stuff!  I am *dying* for their Lamu Jacket in Pink!), and that group is free to join.  The ensemble fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

Each item comes with a HUD so you can pick and choose colors and make the outfit uniquely yours.

My cute golden flower headband is also a free group gift, this time from Evie, and woohoo that group is free to join as well.  Gotta love an entirely free cute outfit!

Tomorrow I think I will check out the fab free list of rezz day gifts, I always mean to and somehow always forget its my rezz day until it passes.  Not this time!  I need some goodies to blog too.  As if I need a reason to find freebies!

Happy Weekend!

The Doorway into Autumn

autumn_006

Hey gang,

I’m here with Tara (aka Miss Tee, aka Chia pet, aka Chi, etc etc) to share with you some gorgeous Autumn decor for your home.  This week would have been Tara’s birthday if her real life self were still here and although I have been unable to find a shih tzu companion in world that looks like her (she was a black and white shih tzu, and I kept her hair cute and short, as she was a bit of a tomboy!), I try to get as close as I can and this little one from Rezz Room is very cute.  😉  (My Golden Animesh Sumner is also based on a real life furbaby of mine I had many moons ago).

But I digress, I am here to speak of the glories of autumn decor, it’s just that she is on my mind this week, September is a difficult month for me, I lost Sumner on the 29th of August, my dad on the 18th and my Mom on the 29th.(not the same year of course)  So with them all lumped together and my little Tee’s birthday in the mix, it’s in the forefront of my mind lately.

Let’s talk about Autumn!  Shanti always has some goodies for free for everyone and this time of year is no exception.  Not only is there a free box of autumn themed goodies (including the rug here and several other items!) but there is also the fireplace behind me for 55L, along with the cute sunflower tapestry, which I love for only 45L but brand new this year is the Ready for Autumn Golden who is only 1L!  I’ve taken a closer-up photo below to show you the little lights so cozy on the fireplace and on our autumn wreath wearing handsome pup as well!  It’s all got a soft lovely glow that will bring a cozy atmosphere to those chilly autumn nights coming up!
No group required for any of these goodies.

autumn_017

Don’t forget all clothing at Shanti is 75L and under, clothing for mesh bodies is on the right and for classic and BOM, on the left.  Though some of the mesh bodies contain classic clothing, just check the vendors for that.  😉

Also, my cute boots are a free group gift from Promagic, they have a load of group gifts and their group is free to join (ok its a whole ROOM of group gifts).

I’m still hoping summer will come back because this girl is not a fan of the cold.  The only *good* thing is that I get to whip out my collection of fingerless gloves that I love to wear.  😉  Of course with covid, I’ve been reduced to wearing them at home, but that’s ok, my hands are cold all winter.  😉 (as if I need an excuse to wear them!)

Apple Picking Season

FabFree Post:Apple Picking Season

Apple Cider

Move over Pumpkin Spice, it is Apple Cider season! (Though you can have both, just not recommended in the same cup) My favorite part of fall is tied between Thanksgiving dinner and Pumpkin Pie on Thanksgiving. It’s really a tough choice on who the clear winner is.

Speaking of pumpkins, Apple Fall has a new group gift out for you to enjoy! This lovely Golden Pumpkin is FREE for you with their free group! I know!! The pumpkin is modifiable so you can make it as BIG or as small as you wish! Perfection for this upcoming Holiday Festival I’m planning! Thank you Apple Fall!

Halloween Dream

Harvest Dreams

When I imagine the perfect fall feast setting, this is how it looks in my mind. This time of year is my absolute favorite time of year, and I was thrilled to see that Muniick has the coolest Farmhouse Halloween Dinner setting for their 60L Happy Weekend offer this weekend.

With the Farmhouse Halloween Dinner set by Muniick you’ll get a large table and chairs with place settings, decor, and a second smaller table for a more intimate setting. That makes for a total of 10 pieces for just 60 linden! The chairs have 24 PG poses, and give props. Each item is also copy, and modify so you can rez multiples and adjust things like size and tint.

Don’t miss out on this amazing set by Muniick available at the 60L Happy Weekend price this weekend only!

Owl Always Love You

Owl Always
Hello there Fab Free’rs! I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving enjoyed the holiday, and that everyone is having a great week. I was visiting relatives for a few days and while it was a nice visit, I’m genuinely happy to be home. I’ve missed being here; I always do when I have to be away for very long. Now, to the good stuff!

There are just a few weeks left in the fall season, I for one have been enjoying the cooler days and the gorgeous autumn colors. Petite Mort recently set out an adorable set of cropped sweaters perfect for fall as a group gift. One sweater is brown with a cute fox graphic, while the other (pictured above) is a lighter shade of brown with an equally cute owl graphic. I love the extra long sleeves, and the slight cowl neck. Both sweaters come in several mesh sizes. At this time the Petite Mort group is just 75 linden to join. There are also group lucky boards at Petite Mort waiting to be played.

Mesh Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus)

Here are the details, enjoy!
