FabFree – Fabulously Free in SL

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


A Spot of My Own

A Spot of My Own

I love crafting little sundrenched spots in Second Life… a little place where I could imagine myself reading a book, surrounded by some pretty items and where I can forget the rest of the world for just a little.  With a nice cup of tea, the scene is complete!

Enchanting Decor

I am showing off some of the lovely decor items you’ll find on the trail of the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt this month.  Don’t forget you’ve got until the 22nd to make the rounds, and we like to make sure that you’ve seen all the pretty things that our awesome designers have put together.  Here’s what I picked up:

  • 1L chair from StoraxTree (I love that it’s made of cane…so chic!)
  • 2L artwork from SLW Design (the perfect view into an enchanted forest!)
  • 5L candle holder from Sycamore Decor (no comfy spot is complete without candles!)
  • 5L bench from Ballade (I NEED this bench in my RL too… isn’t it gorgeous!??!?!)

Put together your own little homey scenes, we’d love to see what you come up with!

It’s rare for me to envision something and then have the ability to manifest what I see in my mind with the tools at my disposal. Death Row Designs and Roawenwood gifted me the ability to really create the sort of diabolical yet romantic scene I had floating around in my imagination. So if this reads like a heartfelt thank you, it’s exactly that. I’ll always be inspired by and grateful for designers who give gifts that are beautifully detailed and thoughtfully made.

Death Row Designs 

I’ve always enjoyed the juxtaposition of the beautiful with the horrific. It’s easy to believe something ugly is sinister, but what of something or someone truly stunning? I find it thrilling in story telling to consider that under a lovely façade lies something malevolent. Death Row Designs often embodies this motif, gorgeous “ruined” things. They have three such things as their free October group gifts, and a fourth group gift that I didn’t show in my photo but is in the vendor ad below. There’s a broken and blood-drenched china tea set, a beautiful set of fall décor that includes a shelf with tchotchke and a silver mirror, and lastly a haunting wall lantern hanging from the fingers of a devilish outstretched arm. The Death Row Designs group is free to join.

FOUR New Group Gifts Now at DRD!!

Roawenwood

I’ve always felt that Roawenwood often has an inkling of darkness to their furnishings. Nothing too wicked, but just dark enough to be alluring. They have a lovely macabre chair and foot-stool set complete with a display ouija board, and drippy candle with darkly romantic red roses and human skull. The furniture itself has a deep purple-blue color, and a texture that makes me think of velour. There’s also a throw blanket over the stool that has gold-like flecks in it. The “Spirit Board Chair Set” is Roawenwood’s free hunt prize for the Fallen Gods Prophecy Hunt. Please click or copy the link below for the ins and outs of the hunt, including hints, and gift previews.

Twas the Night Before Christmas…

Not a Creature Was Stirring...

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; or an adorable puppy. I’ve been enjoying all the Christmas things this year, and the latest group gift at JIAN is among my favorites. The side table complete with cocoa, cookies, and not one, not two, but three adorable puppies is just more than I can resist. It also goes quite well with the Reindeer Games Hunt prize at Park Place. I love the details of this arm chair with the holiday pillow and draped blanket. It looks like the perfect spot to curl up for a long winter nap. For more info about each of these fantastic finds keep reading. As always, there is a full list of credits and links at the end. Happy Holidays!

JIAN

As I mentioned above, this side table with the cookies and cocoa, candle, books, glasses, and even the sweet sleeping puppies is a free group gift at JIAN. This gift is highly detailed and has a touch menu that lets you pick from different textures for the puppies, colors for the blanket they are snuggled up on, and change the lighting effect of the candle. The JIAN group also happens to be free to join at this time.

Park Place

Park Place is participating in the Reindeer Games Hunt happening now. The RGH is a dollarbie hunt with a twist. If you don’t feel like hunting, no problem! The hunt prize is also for sale along side the hunt poster at the participating store for 25 linden. Otherwise, if you’re up for the challenge you can hunt the prize and pay just 1 linden for it once you’ve found it. The prize at Park Place is this nicely crafted arm chair. It includes several male and female sit poses, along with several PG couples poses. Don’t miss this great dollarbie, the hunt ends December 31st.

Hint “Think I’ll just sit at my desk and finish my letter to Santa.”

There’s something about this more subdued Christmas setting that really speaks to me. It feels calm and cozy/ As much as I like the bright and colorful classic Christmas décor, I like this take on Christmas decorations a lot too. Most of the pieces pictured above are from a free set by Trompe Loeil that you can pick up at FaMESHed. The set includes several pieces, which I’ll list below. The furniture has PG single and couples animations in addition to color/texture choices in the touch menu. To get your copy, just join the FaMESHed group (it’s free) and click the gift box at the Trompe Loeil booth at FaMESHed.

Hello Again Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog. It’s Friday, and that means you’ve got ’til the end of the day to pick up this unique piece of furniture from Bloom!. This two-way sofa comes in 3 color versions, each at just 30 lindens for 30L Saturday. Again, this is Bloom!‘s offer from last week, so there will be a new 30L Saturday item after today. The “Logan” sofa has single poses, cuddles, and adult poses. I added the vendor photo, since my picture crops part of the sofa a little.

I’m a Candy-pire!

Candy-pire
I want to bite your candy! Ah! ah! ah! Hello Fab Free, I’m curious, am I the only one who stuck candy corn under their upper lip and pretended to have fangs as a kid? lol As we inch closer to Halloween, I’m really getting into the spirit, and this candy corn dress along with these silly fangs are giving me all the fun festive feels.

The Dress – This kawaii candy corn dress is one of many current group gifts at Envious. The Envious group has a one time join fee of 100 linden. This group gift, along with a few others is waiting behind the desk at the front of the store. Also, don’t forget to check out the group-only lucky chairs at the back of the store.
Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus), Slink (Physique, Hourglass)

The Candy Corn Fangs – These fun candy corn fangs are one of the “Treats” you can score at SongBird as part of their contribution to the SLS Trick or Treat Event.  They are easy to resize and can be worn by male and female avatars. You can get all the information on how this gacha-like event works at the SLS Trick or Treat website. These cute teeth are just 25 linden as part of the event. The great part is, there are no repeat prizes!

The Nail Applier – Pru’s bright orange manicure is another SLS Trick or Treat Event prize. This nail polish applier is one of the Treats at ChiMia. Also just 25 lindens per play, with no repeats. The applier set with varying shades of orange comes in Omega, Slink, and Maitreya appliers.

Here are the details, enjoy!
