A garden in my backyard!

Save me a flower_001

I planted a little garden in my backyard! Complete with a trellis and flowers and it has a pretty stained glass finish! Better yet, it’s a free gift that I’m going to tell you about along with my outfit!

Get my dress!

I picked up my dress at Monomania when I stopped by there to check out the current gifts. There are many gifts currently at the main-store, including the store’s group gifts as well as gifts associated with other groups such as our very own FabFree group as well as this dress I picked up, which is a Third Life Group Gift. The Third Life group costs just 10L to join and gets you gifts at many stores across the grid… like this pretty pink dress called “Candy” at Monomania!

Sizes available:

  • Standard sizes XS – XL
  • Fitmesh sizes XS – XL
  • Slink
  • Maitreya
  • Belleza

Shoes too!

I wandered back to Lindy Modern & Retro after having stopped by the other day. Discovering all those 1L shoe hunts had me excited, and I was sure I could find a pair of shoes to match my new dress. I was right! The pretty pink pair of shoes you see in my picture includes fits for classic, Maitreya and Slink feet and are only 1L as part of the Summer Diaries Hunt. Pick them up at the Lindy Modern & Retro Shoe Store before the end of the month!

Planting flowers.

Finally… my garden centerpiece! This beautiful garden trellis by Crys Secret Garden is a free gift exclusive for FabFree group members. As always, your FabFree group is free to join. Don your FabFree tag and teleport to Crys Secret Garden to pick up this pretty trellis for your back (or front) yard. It weighs in at only 8 prim and includes many beautiful flowery details!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 12/02/2016 – Crys Secret Garden

Crys Secret Garden ExteriorHello Fab Free’rs, it’s that time of the week again when we get to talk about one of our Fabulous designers. This week’s pick is Crys Secret Garden. I have to tell you, as lovely as I think my photo turned out, it doesn’t do the Crys Secret Garden shop justice. My poor little laptop just cannot keep up these days! That said, the grounds surrounding the store, and even the shop its self are delightful to explore. Crys Secret Garden is the type of shop you’ll want to take a moment to wander through. There are lots of fun little spots to enjoy, even a little fishing pond! Not to mention just about everything can be purchased so you can create equally whimsical environments of your own.
Crys GiftsThe Crys Secret Garden shop has much of what the name suggests it might. There are lots of landscaping, garden, and decor type items. Additionally you’ll find several opportunities to receive FREE gifts and purchase inexpensive items. At the entrance there are trails leading you to some of the specials and event items so you don’t accidentally miss them. Once you’re inside there’s a cutely decorated information corner to the right where you’ll find the subscriber, group joiner, and information boards. I noticed the shop is participating in a holiday hunt! Right now Crys Secret Garden also has a group gift up, a Midnight Mania Board (no group needed), our Fabulous Fab Free exclusive group gift, and another FREE gift I’ve not seen anywhere else. Above the Crys Secret Garden group gift you’ll see a board that asks how you found the shop. Click the sign, then type your answer in open chat and you’ll instantly be sent a FREE gift. The Crys Secret Garden group is FREE to join. Also, don’t forget to wear your Fab Free group tag pick up the Fab Free group exclusive gift was previously blogged by Astrid here. Whether you’re looking to spruce up your space, or just want to hang out and explore, I highly suggest you take a moment and check out Crys Secret Garden.

My Secret Garden On Tuesday

My Secret Garden on Tuesday

It’s 25L Tuesday! Time to stock up on your roleplay wardrobe! On a Lark has out another lovely dress for the ladies… and again it is one that is versatile enough to be for roleplay or everyday. You can pick it up in a myriad of colors for just 25L each and this pretty dress comes in fits for Maitreya, Freya, Venus, Isis, Hourglass, Venus, and Werwolf. There are no standard mesh sizes in the package and it does not include an alpha, though if you did some fiddling, you might be able to get it to fit a standard avatar.

I decided I needed a place to lounge about and found the perfect seating courtesy of Crys Secret Garden. They have generously put out a gift for FabFree members.

Just join the FabFree group FREE by coping and pasting secondlife:///app/group/020fa7af-444d-f54f-01e2-557ec06315fd/about into local chat, clicking the link, and then joining the group.

Teleport to Crys Secret Garden and pick up this lovely rock garden with daffodils free! It includes 5 sits and is only 6 prims.

Don’t Cry in My Garden

It’s hard to believe that fall is just around the corner, and that fall fashions will soon be in full swing. But with a little help from the Crys Secret Garden Cart at the Cart Wash Sale and some lovely treats around the grid (and a few from the Marketplace), you will be ready for the upcoming cool October evenings.

Secret Gardens and Mistwood [1]

Fall landscaping has never been so lush! And Crys Secret Garden will help you create your own magic garden hideaway. Pictured above from the Crys Secret Garden Cart at the Cart Wash Sale is the Rosey Birch Garden Patch which I used to create the center piece for my scene. I added the Ivy Crate Stack (pictured on the right) and the Stumpy Lounging Spot (pictured on the left) which includes animated sits for you to get comfortable on. Each of these fabulous pieces is only 10L each!

Notice my pumpkins? Only 2 prim, mesh, copy, and fully modify! I found those FREE little gems while visiting We ❤ Roleplay at the Artisan Fantasy Booth! They are a FREE Artisan Fantasy group gift and the group is FREE to join — at the We ❤ Roleplay event right now!

BrokenStyle also treated customers to a fantastic September group gift in the form of this gorgeous mesh fall cardigan and skirt that comes in all the standard sizes. I love that this outfit works great for both Medieval Fantasy wear, but is versatile enough that it could pass for a warm “cozy by the fall fire after a hay ride” outfit too! The BrokenStyle Kinna Cardigan and Skirt are yours FREE with your BrokenStyle group tag. The group is 50L to join, but there are lots of past gifts still out for the savvy shopper to pick up!

Secret Gardens and Mistwood [2]

And as usual, the details finish the look (or so I have always said)! So I have some fine details to add to finish off this fantasy fun adventure into our Secret Garden today.

If you are going to be outside on dark autumn evenings, every proper Medieval Lady needs a candle to carry! (Just ask Lady Macbeth!) And I found a terrific one for only 75L at Lorien that fits just perfectly into Slink hands (I’m wearing the casual style hands and I didn’t have to adjust the candle at all) and it worked with my AO without any issue as well! Yay! Yay! I am loving this wonderfully authentic roleplay prop!

I also found a terrific set of matching jewelry by [Mistwood]. Each piece is sold separately on the marketplace, but with the low prices, you can get them all and they won’t break your budget!

Astrid is wearing [Mistwood] Glacial Stone Rings for 29L (the package included both a right and left ring), the [Mistwood] Glacial Stones Bracelets for 39L (again the package included both a right and left), and her “tiara” is actually one of the [Mistwood] Glacial Stones Armbands for 49L. I used the add/attach to feature to attach the band to her skull. I resized it up and edited it into place on a pose stand. It only took a few minutes and it was a perfect fit in no time! (The armband package also included both a right and a left.) If you modify and edit one of your armbands like I did, I suggest making a back up copy. These items are copy so that is no problem. You can have armbands AND a tiara!

In the picture below you can see that there are several additional nice items on the Crys Secret Garden Cart that I wasn’t able to show you in my post — the two very lovely wildflower planters. And everything on the cart is only 10L each of course… so stock up for fall!
