My Summer Space

My Space
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”.  Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.

Fab Exclusives

Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch.  The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.

Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad

Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Top Shelf

Lounging

Something worth celebrating.

Paisley Daisy has a beautiful January group gift out for the ladies… a purple celebration suit! And I couldn’t pass it up. This one piece dress suit in all the standard sizes (with an excellent alpha layer if you’re still using your system body) is pure magic. It is highly detailed and the texture is amazing, with a shimmer and glimmer that is simply unique and beautiful. The Paisley Daisy group fee is 100L, but you’ll get amazing monthly group gifts just like this one to add to your wardrobe, making it well worth the Linden in my opinion.

What’s on the shelf?

I decided to do a little decorating this morning and was pleased to make away with a free shelf from Cwtch! They have out their Calon Lan Shelf & Decor (it’s all one piece) free for FabFree group members. Just wear your FabFree group tag and pick up this lovely gift.

The shelf is only 4 prim total and includes everything you see in the picture. My head is hiding the two of the lovely picture frames (there are 3 total) that allow you to add your own textures/pictures to them just by dragging and dropping pictures from your inventory to the frame. It was easy peasy! This lovely shelf will be a welcome (free) addition to your home!

Fab Free Designer Friday – 11/04/2016 – Cwtch

CwtchI don’t know about everyone else, but it seems to me like Friday crept up on me this week! The entire week just seemed to fly by. Either way, I’m happy it’s Friday, and excited about today’s Fab Free Designer Friday post. This week’s shop is a new-to-me store called Cwtch. The name alone instantly had my attention, I think it sounds fun and creative. Also, Cwtch was originally called Koala after the brand’s designer, she’s re-branded her store with the Cwtch name, but you’ll still find things that use the Koala name. Not to worry, you’re still in the right place!

This quaint little shop has just a few items, most of which are decor or cute small furnishings. There is a current FREE Cwtch group gift out, pictured above on the left. The Cwtch group is FREE to join. You’ll find this FREE group gift next to the desk. It’s easy to spot the Fabulously Free group joiner on the wall opposite the Cwtch group gift. Under the colorful Fab Free sign, you’ll find another FREE gift, this one exclusive to Fab Free group members. Love had previously shown the Cwtch Fab Free exclusive gift in her blog post here. As always the Fab Free group is FREE to join!  I am really looking forward to seeing with this adorable little shop has to offer in the future as it inevitably grows. That said, stop by Cwtch and check out the gifts and cute shop items.

Won’t You Stay For Tea?

Snapshot_003

Hello FabFree Readers! I am blogging a little different tonight and am showing you some free “stuff” rather than clothing items and avatar accessories like I usually do.

In my photo you will see the following displayed:

  • Table: The 4 prim blanket table in the Autumn Leaf print is available at  Cwtch  as a free Fabulously Free in SL group gift!  You can even click on it and change the colour of the table cloth to six different colours which will mean it should match in practically any setting you have!
  • Floor Rug:  You can find the Storax Tree Round Rug B6 as a free gift,  set to the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group as well.  At just 1 prim, you can copy these all over your pixel home!
  • Tea Set:  At DRD, The Black Widow Tea Set is available as a free group gift.  This fun Halloween themed item is just 2 prims and gives animated tea cups upon touch.  The DRD inworld group is free to join.

Have fun decorating… for FREE!

New Fabulously Free in SL Group Gift @ Cwtch!

Hello FabFree readers!  Guess who has a new free group gift in their shop set to the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group…. Cwtch, that’s who!  Wondering what a Cwtch is?  I was too and I am still not confident I am saying it just right outloud even after I practiced so…  I consulted with Urban Dictionary who confirmed that it is a Welch term for an affectionate hug!  That’s cute, isn’t it :).   Inworld it’s a cute little shop filled with decor and home furnishings… check it out!
