Athy Designs Cart Sale

Beachy Keen
Welcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! So I decided to blog outside my comfort zone and show some furniture items from The Cart Sale happening at The Wash. As far as I am concerned The Cart Sale is the perfect opportunity to redecorate without breaking the bank. I picked up quite a few furniture and decor items up at the Athy Designs cart. Starting with the furniture and some of the decor shown in this summery setting.

Beachy Keen

With the help of a fun beach themed backdrop by Focus Poses I was able to use this cute wicker furniture by Athy Designs to create this fun outdoor oasis. The wicker lounge, matching table, and potted palm are all part of a 10 linden set at the Athy Designs cart. I also picked up the matching wicker chair, table, and small potted plant to the right in another 10 linden set from the Athy Designs cart. Additionally, the cute lotus flower candle is also part of 10 linden candle decor set at the Athy Designs cart. Each of the items are copy-able so you can set out multiples of each item.

Elegant Office

Office Dreams

If the beach isn’t your scene, there are other equally well done items at the Athy Designs cart. All the items you see in the above office setting are part of a single 10 linden “Mesh Executive Desk Set.” The desk, chair, lamp, mirror, desk books, floor plant, cabinet, roses, and cabinet books are all included in this single set for 10 lindens. There is also a smaller version of the vase full of roses intended to sit on the desk. As with the other items from Athy Designs, these are all copy-able. I personally love the detail and style of this set. The textures are beautifully done, and the 10 linden price just cannot be beat!

Here are the details, enjoy!

Walkin’ in a Winter Wonderland

ghee3_001f

Baby, it’s Cold Outside

It’s been a cold and rainy day here in RL, and I’ve got a zillion-and-one things to do to get ready for The Big Day on Sunday. So what am I doing instead? Wandering around pretty, snowy places in SL (shame on me)! 😛

Thank goodness I’ve got this GORGEOUS ensemble from GHEE to keep me warm! The entire outfit – dress, fur hat, and boots – has been set out as a free gift for group members. And since I’ve forgotten my gloves, I’m so glad to be wearing a dress that has pockets to keep my pixel hands warm (actually, the dress comes with hands-in-pockets already so no glove searching will be necessary).

In the box, you’ll find the dress in standard mesh sizes (XXS – L with an alpha layer), boots for Maitreya and SLINK High feet, and the fur hat, which is adjustable via resizer.

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

This pretty marble build in which I am casually strolling is a free gift from Barnesworth Anubis for the KittyCatS Advent Calendar… although I can’t remember which day. Doesn’t really matter, though; you can still pick up ALL THE GIFTS as long as you head over to KittyCatS sometime within the next 2 days, as Love mentioned earlier today. The complete build has 4 columns and a land impact of 17. Perfect addition to your wintry garden scene. 🙂

A Writer’s Retreat

Snapshot

Not many of you may know it, but I am a stay at home mom, and an author as my day job in real life. That is why I absolutely fell in love with this set from Aisling that is currently available at the arcade. I haven’t gotten quite lucky enough to collect the entire set, but the nice thing about The Arcade, is you have all month long to try again, and even trade with others for those few “must have” items that you are still missing. I think I have now found my new favorite spot in SL! My upstairs hallway.

Feeling the Love on Valentine’s Day

valentine6f

I’m in love! Yeah, I know, who doesn’t love a man in a tuxedo, right? 😉 Lucky for Gavin, I found this snazzy mesh tux at Sin Original as part of the Love Love Hunt. Even the shoes are included – not bad for only 1L! He’s also wearing the new Goldy Teal gift eyes from Amacci – no group join is needed.

My dress is a free Valentine’s Day gift from Snowpaws; there is also a petite version available, so ladies of all sizes can look dazzling today. Oh, and I got our dancing pose at the Valentine’s Sale at Glitterati Poses; all couples and friends poses are on sale until 21 February.

Gavin is a great guy, but I’m so in love with these SHOES! I joined the [Gos] Boutique group for free back when it first opened up, and I’m so glad I did; these special edition Grace Sandals Red Glitter are a brand-new gift for group members. The join fee is 500L now, but… the Grace Sandals regularly cost more than the join fee, so pick up this gift and you’ve got your $L back. Part of what makes these shoes so amazing is the skin matching. To say that it’s easy – and it works! – would be an understatement. Seriously, a couple of clicks and you’re done. Behind me is the Who We Love Photoboard, the Valentine’s Day VIP group gift from {what next} (250L to join). There are spaces for photos of 16 of your favorite people, and the board and frame are texture-change. I’ve added a few of my faves already. 🙂

[Pink Fuel] released this scrumptious group gift today: Alyx <Peach> – Sultry. She comes with dark brows and 2 different eye makeups, and the [PF] group is free to join. Are those red lips luscious, or what? My Love’s Coming necklace and ring are both group gifts from Chop Zuey Couture. The group is 350L to join, but even if you choose not to join, you can still pick up several other gifts, including these earrings, for free.

I would personally like to thank all the wonderful designers for their generosity this Valentine’s Day. Today has honestly been like Christmas all over again; while I was taking these photos, it seemed like a new gift came through every few minutes! If you get a chance, thank a designer.

Gavin and I hope you all have a wonderfully romantic Valentine’s Day! ❤

10 for 10

Yesterday the 10 for 10 event began.  10 content creators, 10 locations, 10 items for 10L and 10 items for 110L all during this 10 day event!  Each one of the L$110 items is inside all the kiosks, just click the appropriate logo.  The center of the kiosk contains the special L$10 item.  Each location has another designer’s L$10 item instead of their own so tp to all 10 locations.

Here’s a few of the L$10 items that I picked up.  Don’t forget each location has another designer’s L$10 item instead of their own, so you may have to tp through them all to find these items!

The cushion pillow is from Glitterati, MudHoney Designs offers the Embroidery Hoop Wall Hanging and the dieci planter is from Barnesworth Anubis.

The gray Brigadier scarf is the L$10 item from Indyra Originals and the black Heart Rock ring is from caLLie cLine.  The ocean nature eyes are from MADDesigns.  Djinn & Tonic offers three makeup layers in cherry bomb, plummet, and sweetly.  The Truth L$10 item has four tank tops.

I couldn’t resist picking up a few of the L$110 offers.  The Padma hair is from Truth and comes in an entire fatpack for only L$110!!!  The Noir Coquette Egoista heels are the L$110 item from Indyra Originals that I couldn’t pass up!
