It Was A Cold Winter Night… Outside These Four Walls

It may have been a cold, winter night outside, but inside these four walls, it was warm and cozy! Like Love, I recently did a little Cold Winter Nights Hunting. And she did not exaggerate about how fabulous the prizes are in this hunt! Check out Love’s post here for more information about the Cold Winter Night Hunt and for photos of some of the great prizes she picked up.

I invited Gavin over to see my new Little Getaway Skybox, the CWNH prize from Designer Prims. I had so much fun playing with the options on this amazing skybox that I may have gotten an eensy bit carried away. Seriously though, there is almost nothing you can’t mod, so you can customize it to be whatever you want it to be. There’s a menu-driven panel to change the floor, brick walls, and accent wood; the rest you can just re-texture yourself. Trust me, your 10L will be well spent on this one! The furniture you see here (most of it) is part of the hunt prize from Cleo Design. It includes two different sofas, a rug, coffee table with candles and fruit, a magazine rack, and a mirror and set of pictures that you can’t see in this picture. Again, I went a little nuts playing with the color options on the sofas. They come with several fun animations, and even dispense props! The lovely artwork you see over the green sofa not a hunt prize, but is a gift from Whiskey Monday to celebrate the first anniversary of Atelier Kreslo. There is also second gift, which I’ll show you in a bit.

Another view of the skybox. Gorgeous, isn’t it?

I had this empty back wall and nothing to fill it up, so I accidentally on-purpose wandered off into another hunt: The Four Walls Hunt.

The Four Walls Hunt runs until January 31st, and includes 37 stores. All prizes are 20L, but are valued at 200L or more. Be sure to visit the official blog for prize photos and SLURLs. You’ll be hunting for an evergreen tree in a cardboard box.

PRIZE PREVIEW AND SLURLS

Ok, back to my empty wall: I saw a picture of the Miller Dresser and Positive Words Art from PILOT and decided that I absolutely had to have it. Can you believe the dresser is only 2 L.I.? Oh, and see that cakestand full of delicious cupcakes? Another Four Walls prize, this time from Sway’s. It comes with the plates and cups you saw on the table in the previous pictures, as well as a couple of cute wall-hangings. Yummy! The Bird Cage Lamp is not a hunt item, but rather a free gift from Sway’s. There is also a smaller version in the box. Over in the corner is another non-hunt item, the Mayfair Trunk (Old Glory), a VIP group gift from {what next} (250L to join). The bookcase and furnishings inside are part of the skybox. 🙂

Gavin is such a “Sheldon” that I decided to pick up the Star Party star-gazing set, the CWNH prize from -Hanaya-. It is mesh, weighs in at 9 L.I., and comes with menu-driven animations for up to three avatars. It’s really a lot of fun to play with. Hey, looks like Gavin found something!

Here is an outside view of the skybox. The inside brick texture carries to the outside wall. There is a door on the other side, in case you decide to put your home on land instead of floating in the sky.

More evidence of my “modding madness”: I took out the fireplace that came with the skybox and added this Oak Fireplace, the CWNH prize from [Barnesworth Anubis]. The mirror over the mantle and the two pictures to the left of the fireplace are part of the Cleo Design CWNH prize. And the little daisy on a chair is the other anniversary gift from Atelier Kreslo; it comes in 3 sizes, with this one being the largest. To the right of the fireplace is the Pallet Log Box, the most recent VIP group gift from {what next}. Gavin and I decided to finish off those cupcakes; we’re snuggling in the Warming Up couples pose, the CWNH prize from Atooly.

Oh, and about what we’re wearing: Gavin’s beautifully textured mesh sweater is the CWNH prize from {Epicosity}, and my sparkly Pom Pom sweater is the prize from ::PurpleMoon::. My pants are not a hunt prize, but I’ll tell you about them anyway: they are the R.icielli Mesh SALLY Skinny Pants, available for 10L on the Marketplace. You get 10 different colors in the box, each in 5 standard sizes. How’s that for a deal? UPDATE: Gavin’s pants are a holiday gift from Rispetto Designs, and will be available to group members until approximately February 1st (50L to join); look for the boxes under the Christmas tree. We’re both wearing free skins; Gavin’s is part of the latest group gift from -Belleza- (250L to join), and mine is [ROCKBERRY]’s free gift at FabFree Headquarters.

Whew! Any cupcakes left?

Furnishings Friday #17 – Falling Leaves & Lost Keys

Parkplace I can hardly believe we are on week #17 of Furnishings Friday already!  I started this challenge for myself because I was having trouble motivating myself to show non avatar items like clothing,skins, accessories lol and there are just so many wonderful and free home furnishings that needed a place here on Fabulously Free in SL.  Since then, I have noticed that I am even starting to use them on unFridays sometimes too YAY!

Anyways… This week for Furnishings Friday, I am going to feature a few prizes from the Falling Leaves Hunt.  I will be showing more of it soon, but today seemed like a good day to start the first round!  The Falling Leaves Hunt began on October 3rd and will run until October 24th.  All of the gifts are free, and are autumn home and garden themed items.  You can find their official blog at the following link with a hunt preview, hints and a complete list of slurls – http://thecookiejarcommunity.wordpress.com/falling-leaves-hunt/

icon In the photo at the top of this post, I am digging furiously through the Dark Walnut Table With Accessories made by Park Place for those keys I can never seem to find lol.  This gift from Park Place includes the table with a drawer that opens and closes, as well as all of the pictures and table accessories you see.

Below, I am taking a few minutes to check my messages in a little cozy space I have made for myself with a few of the prizes.  First, I started with the Designer Prims Falling Leaves Studio Skybox that is just 17 prims.  The animated sofa (seats two w/ accessories), rug and ottoman with steaming coffee is the gift you can find at PRIME.  Zinnia’s is the designer of the Bye-Bye Birdie Coffee Table Set.

livingroom Another Falling Leaves Hunt prize that I couldn’t wait to show off is the Ochun Ottoman with Sits that also came with the
Autumn Wall Decal shown from Wings of Enchantment.  The ottoman is draped with a cozy blanket and has such cute, lazy sits.Wingsofenchantment

On a side note…  the gorgeous peach mesh coat I am wearing is just 15L in the Ricielli Halloween Hunt 🙂  It’s #1… and.. If you’d like more information on hunts around the grid, check out our SLHunts Page at the top!

Furnishings Friday #2

1

As I mentioned last Friday, each Friday I am challenging myself to blog furniture or furnishing gifts as they don’t get  nearly enough attention!  I am easily distracted by clothing, what can I say.  Anyways, this is the second week and I have found a few cool things in the way of structures, furniture, clothing and accessories!

The Shed above is made by Designer Prims and is hidden in a champagne bottle that costs 1L for The Cookie Jar Anniversary Hunt.  This hunt ended yesterday, however I checked today and the bottle is still hidden!  Hurry if you’d like to pick this up!  The shed is 45 prims and includes doors that open and close, the light and white curtains.  The accessories are not included.

On Marketplace you can find for 1L, the Bazar Good Morning Set that includes the table with rezzable breakfast and chairs that are copy so you can add as many as you like.  The chairs have 6 animations in them.  (9 prims).  The rug is not included with the set.  I purchased the LISP Bazaar Little Beach Reader Set which includes the blue and white rug under the table, and the reading cushions with animations and book that i have placed outside the doors.

2

The mesh  Summer Dress I am wearing is made by Pixel Snobs and is part of the Mesh Around Hunt which ends today (6/15/12).  While I was in the Pixel Snob’s store I noticed that if you join their inworld group for 100L, you can pick up a gift that includes a 100L GC for the store.  I used my GC to purchase the Beaded Bangles for 100L that I am also wearing.  They have lucky chairs and a MM board as well.

3

The IKON V.I.P Group sent out a notice this morning stating that they are changing groups and you should now join the IKON VIP group, which is free.  Once you have done so, you can check in notices for three sets of free eyes shown below – Horizon Eyes V2 Pale Glass, Sunrise Eyes Arabian Blue Light, Utopia Eyes Dark Red.

What’s Your Second Style?

The white sale ended yesterday but there are still quite a few googies to pick up!  I grabbed the Faking Innocence dress from Sn@tch.  The dress is quite lovely and does make me look innocent, right?  The Feathers skin is available at Heartsick for only L$50.  The skin is available in many skin tones, I am wearing the Reverie tone.  The Mei Ying hair has a very innocent look so I had to wear it.  The hair is not free, but available at Hair Solutions.

I also found the black Mourning Flower dress at Soleil for only L$1!  The Cassie hair is another not free, but fabulous hair from Hair Solutions.  The Prisma Blood earrings, necklace, and ring set are the grand opening gift at Morrisey Jewels.

I picked up the purple sequin bikini at Aqua.  There are also male swim trunks in the box next to the bikini.  Also, I know Whisper has blogged this before, but the True Romance dress is a gift at Aqua.  The dress includes the long length and a mini skirt option.

I won the yellow Pammy babydoll dress in the lucky chair at Cupcakes.  There are tons of other prizes to win, so try your luck!  I blogged the white Prelude XtremeHeels yesterday.  The heels are a group gift at N-core and will be available throughout the summer.

Hudson Clothing has a new VIP group gift available.  The Watermelon Beach bikini comes with the matching skirt wrap.  The multicolor ankle boots are a past group gift from N-core.  The boots have been blogged several times before, but they are great and still available!

The Too Black lace dress is a dollarbie at Elemiah Design.  The dress is available for 48 hours, so dom’t miss out!

The green leaf print top and brown skirt were sent to the Kunglers Fashion Design group members for July.   There is a L$50 one time enrollment fee to join the Kunglers Fashion Design group.  The red beaded necklace was sent to the *evie* sub-o members this morning and comes with the triple and single strand necklace.

The newest gift for ezura group members is the slim fitting white dress.

If you feel like splurging pick up the Pandora gown at ezura.  This gown is a new release and has many options available, including matching lingerie!

Also the Limited Edition FF Gothic Gown is available to the higher bidder at ezura.  Only 25 of these gowns are available and I have one of them, perhaps you can get one too!  The proceeds from the sale of this gown will be donated to Relay for Life

There’s also an unfurnished Studio Skybox at Designer Prims.  The skybox has a skylight window and includes a few accessories in the gift.  Plus, it’s only 22 prims!!!  I think I have a ghost in the center area…
