Dreaming in Vintage


Dreaming in Vintage

Calling all of my fellow Fab Free furniture and décor lovers! I cannot express to you how gorgeous the gacha set Oubliette has out at Gachaland is. The colors are rich, and the textures are lush. If you’re into deep jewel tones with a vintage eclectic feel, this set is for you. It includes all the furniture and decor items pictured, minutes the sweet sleeping corgi. This gacha by Oubliette is just 50 linden per play at Gachaland. I’ll include a photo of the gacha key below.

Image may contain: text and indoor

To go along with this setup, I also picked up the latest free group gift at Jian. I love this sweet sleeping corgi so much! He/she has a touch menu that lets you turn on or off a breathing animation, change between several preset fur choices for the puppy, and pick the color of the pillow. To get your copy of this adorable group gift just head over to Jian and join their group. Right now the Jian group is free to join. You’ll find this free gift and a handful of others waiting at the Jian main store.

Inner Peace and Quiet

 

Inner Peace and Quiet

Sometimes everyone needs to take a moment and just bask in the quiet. I took some needed time to be alone, be silent, and quiet my mind. It’s part of how I “self care.” Second Life in a lot of ways is part of my self care also. Among many things (and a few people), this blog and the never ending quest for fabulous freebies are therapeutic. They are/it is good for my psyche. For this post I’ve got the latest group gift at gO! to share with you, and free SL16B gifts from Peaches, Libertine, and Ariskea. I hope they’re good for your psyche too.

About The Dress – 

One of the things I’ve always admired about clothing from gO! is the texture. This group gift dress is no different. The detailed textures are such that it’s easy to imagine how this dress would feel, how it would move. The gO! group has a one time join fee of 50 linden. To get your gift simply join the group, then click the gift vendor behind the desk while wearing your group tag.

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

About The Blanket & Décor

I still can’t get over the number of gifts out at the SL16B shopping event. I do wish there were more gifts for the guys, sorry gents, though I did pick up a few great décor items along side the many gifts for the ladies. One of which is this very cute summery blanket with animations, and the froggy incense holder by Peaches. Notably named “The Queen’s Peace”, this gift has single and bento PG couples poses. You’ll find this free SL16B gift by Peaches waiting in the SL16B Tinseled region.

Doesn’t this little owl planter by Ariskea look like it was made to go with the SL16B gift by Peaches? I think it definitely does. This adorable owl comes exactly as shown and is copy, mod, no transfer. You can get yours for free at the Ariskea shop on the SL16B Aurelian region.

Pears are possibly my favorite fruit. This delicious looking plate of pears is the free SL16B gift by Libertine. Along with these perfectly plated pears, the Libertine gift includes a broken plate version with scattered berries and chocolates, and a little note. This free SL16B gift is waiting in the SL16B Aurelian region as well

A Little Old Place Where We Can Get Together

To the Moon and Back

Hello There Fab Free’rs, welcome back to the blog! The Gacha Garden event has started. So needless to say I have a gorgeous bohemian furniture and décor set, complete with the house for everything to go inside to share with you. I’m not often much of a “gacha” person, but I do like gachas as a way to get beautiful furniture and décor pieces. This set is by none other than Petite Mort. I’ve always been a fan of the boho style in both clothing and furniture. This set is just 50 lindens per play at Gacha Garden. Petite Mort also added an exclusive prize set of houseplants (not pictured) to this set that is awarded after 20 pulls. The seating, and the Rare bed all have PG couples and individual poses. I’ve included a copy of the gacha key for this “Love Shack” set below so you can get a second look. Happy Gacha-ing!

The Wildflower Ruins

Wild Flower Ruins
Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! I have something a little different for you today. The gorgeous setting above is one of several 30 Linden Saturday sale items at Simply Shelby. Before I go on about all the cool features of this piece, I want to point out that this is last Saturday’s sale item. That means that it is only available for 30 lindens through the end of Friday. After Friday, there will be new sale items. This cool scene comes in a rez box for easy setup. Everything pictured is included. the rocks, the flowers, even the adorable deer.  Also, this scene by Simply Shelby has a few extra  items in the package. The optional add-ons include animated fish, swimming ducks, and a sunbeam for extra detail. Aptly named the Wildflower Ruins, this set also has several built in individual and couple’s poses. I don’t mind telling you I did test the poses, and they are all l quite nice. To get your copy of this fantastic set just head over to Simply Shelby and go to the building that says “Sales” and you’ll find all the current 30 Linden Saturday sale items. There are several items, so I have added an additional photo below. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Don’t forget! These are last week’s 30 Linden Saturday sale items at Simply Shelby. They will change this Saturday!

Mermaid Monday


Mermaid Monday

Hi There Fab Free’rs! Welcome back to the blog! In a perfect world the above photo shows exactly how I’d want to spend the day. I’d love to be lounging on a fluffy sofa with some pretty candles lit eating tarts from a fancy tray. Alas, it is simply not meant to be, not for real life anyway. Thank goodness for Second Life where I can at least pretend. lol Even better I can get the fluffy sofa, the pretty candles, and the plate of tarts all for free at Merak. Additionally, I can live out a little bit of my mermaid daydreams wearing these leggings from RoRo. Keep reading for more information about the free group gifts at Merak and the store closing sale at RoRo.

Merak – I need to be sure to thank Love for pointing out these awesome group gifts at Merak. Right now you can pick up several free gifts while wearing your Merak group tag including the candles, sofa, and tray of tarts shown. The candles come in 3 versions, and the sofa has single and couples poses along with some texture options for the large center pillow. The Merak group is free to join as well, making these gifts irresistible and well worth the effort. There are some additional gifts available that are not shown in my photo, so I’ve added a photo below of the group gift area at Merak.

RoRo – The news is sad but true, RoRo is closing. The store will shut its doors tomorrow, January 15th. If there’s anything you’d like from the store, now is the time. Most items are marked down to just 25 lindens. I picked up these super cute leggings for 25 lindens. They are an Omega applier only item with several color variations. At RoRo you’ll also find many past gifts out marked from 1 linden to 10 lindens each. Also, there is an assortment of gachas from different stores all marked 25 lindens each. You’ll definitely want to stop by RoRo and check things out. The below photo shows some of what you can expect to find. Happy Shopping!

Get Fancy


Get Fancy

Hellooo Fab Free! It’s Monday, but I’m not going to let that phase me, and you shouldn’t either. I’ve got a little something different today as I’m sure you’ve already noticed by the above photo. What is all this? I know it looks a bit like a fancy yard sale, however each of the furniture and décor pieces shown in the photo is a free group gift at Fancy Décor. Every lamp, box, chair, and bauble is free to all Fancy Décor group members. There is a one time join fee for the Fancy Décor group of 250 lindens. Fancy Decor group members also get 10% off their store purchases when wearing the group tag. In my opinion the join fee is completely worth it, just look at all this pretty stuff! The textures are really beautiful, I’m genuinely impressed with these gifts. The chair, and the sofa both have single and couples poses. I have yet to test the stools, however I’d imagine they have single poses as well. Also, most, if not all of the items are copy and mod, so you can rez out multiple and modify them if you’re so inclined. For a complete list of each item, and the land impact prims check out the details below.

Z.O.E. Landing Point
Hello hello Fab Free! Thanks for being here. This week’s designer of the week is none other than Z.O.E. I have to tell you that  Z.O.E. is one of those shops that it is genuinely a pleasure to browse through. It is a shop that has a little bit of everything nestled neatly in the setting of a residential home. Shopping at Z.O.E. feels like you’re browsing through a quaint downtown shop in a small town. Much of what Z.O.E. has to offer is furniture and decor. You’ll also find commercial and residential builds, and even a small amount of men’s and women’s clothing.

Pictured above is the information area at the Z.O.E. landing point. Here you can access the shop Flickr, blog, and Facebook page. There’s also a convenient teleporter that will take you to building demos, and the clothing area on the second floor. Right next to this spot you can also purchase store gift cards.
Z.O.E. Gifts and Offers
The weekly sales at Z.O.E. are clearly marked, and not far from the landing point. There is also a group gift area. There you can join the Z.O.E. VIP group. This group is FREE to join. Z.O.E. VIP group members get discounts on new releases, discounts on regular purchases, store credit on purchases made while wearing the group tag, and group gifts. In this area is also where you’ll find the exclusive Fabulously Free in SL group gift from Z.O.E. It’s a super cute two-sided frame. The Fab Free group is always FREE to join. Also, don’t pass by the cute heart patterned pillow. It’s not only a cute decorative pillow, it’s a FREEbie!

Relax… and visit a friend.

Visiting a Friend!

This is a good time of year for catching up with friends. I was visiting a friend’s house this morning and I fell in love with some furniture he had out… this room divider and table. It turned out that he got it as a free group gift for the L’Homme Readers Group. Well I was all excited and wanted the gift for myself!

A trip to get my own…

So we took a trip to UnKindness, my friend kindly escorted me, and I picked up the free UnKindness Bamboo Hall Set for myself. It does come with decor but I like it just topped with a plant myself. I did include a vendor advertisement picture at the bottom of this post so you can see everything that is included in this great free gift. All the pieces are just 1 prim each so this is very low land impact and practical for setting out!

A new sweater too!

After seeing Love and Carson sporting their matching sweaters in their blog post {here} my friend and I decided we wanted those exact same sweaters. So we took a teleport to NUTS Inc to pick up the free POE Hunt prize there so we had something to lounge about the house in. We were pleasantly surprised to see that there were matching ladies and men’s group gift sweaters out at the store too that were just as nice! The NUTS Inc group is only 5L to join and if you take your fella along, you can both have a matching sweater like the one I’m wearing in the picture above. I really like the classic colors and warm feel.

Sweater sizes available:

  • Classic Mesh XXS – L with Alpha
  • TMP
  • Maitreya – Lara
  • Slink – Physique & Hourglass
  • Belleza – Freya, Isis, & Venus

Oubliette Halloween Hunt

OublietteWelcome back to the blog Fab Free’rs! I have to say autumn is the one time of year that I am most excited about hunts in Second Life. I love all things fall or Halloween related. Maybe it’s because I was born this time of year, both in real life and in Second Life. You might laugh at me for this, but no joke, I started decorating my house for Halloween the second week in September. Haha Needless to say, I was super excited to hear about the Halloween Hunt at Oubliette.

In celebration of the season Oubliette is having a Halloween Hunt with 10 total hunt prizes hidden in the Oubliette shop and the grounds surrounding. There are 8 home furniture and decor items, and 2 lounge-wear items. Each hunt prize is just 10 lindens. There are no group tags required for this hunt, everyone can participate. There is a playful occult-ish theme to these hunt items. If you’re unfamiliar with Oubliette, the style is sometimes a tad macabre and always beautiful. Every one of the decor or furniture items in the above photo is included in this hunt from the darkly whimsical embroidery to the sleeping kitty on the rug. The black and purple Victorian era inspired chair has a few male and female sit poses, the one in the photo however is from Pru’s animation override-r.
Oubliette 2
Along with the lovely home goods, this beautiful maxi style off-the-shoulder dress and matching slippers are part of the Oubliette Home Halloween Hunt. There is something a little bit pagan and a little bit bohemian about this comfy lounge-wear. Wearing these items makes me wanna curl up with a good book and a warm mug of coffee, thankfully the coffee and books are part of the Oubliette hunt too! Both clothing items come in several sizes for easy fitting. These fun Halloween themed items will be available for hunting at Oubliette through the entire month of October. You’ll be looking for little poison bottles, and don’t forget to hunt around the grounds outside the Oubliette store as well, specifically the cemetery. Happy Hunting Fab Free!

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

Here are the details, Enjoy!
