Hello There Fab Free, I trust we are all staying safe at home as much as we can. Speaking of staying at home, the Second Life Stay at Home Club has been a bright spot in otherwise dark times. I’m thankful we can all socialize and spend time together in SL while we are being socially distant in RL. I’m equally excited to be able to share with you more amazing freebies thanks to the generosity of so many designers in Second Life. Today’s post features gifts from Normandy and Hilted.

Normandy

The striped jumpsuit I’m wearing is the free “Stay at Home” gift from Normandy. It fits like a glove. Dress it up, dress it down, wear it to the beach, workout, whatever, you’ll look amazing. It comes with a color change hud that lets you change the jumper’s main color, and the color of the straps/hem.

Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Slink Hourglass, Belleza Freya, Legacy

Let’s get lit-up. The free “Stay at Home” gift from Hilted is this industrial style futuristic furniture sit with vibrant blue neon lighting. The set includes a chair, sofa, table, and tabletop décor. All the pieces are copy/mod, so you can rez multiples. I know my photo is dark, but I wanted to show how this furniture really glows. I feel like this could be part of so many cool settings. A million possibilities come to mind. Don’t miss out on this striking furniture set at Hilted.

That Cabin Life

That Cabin Life

Hey Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. Did you know there’s a Toilet Roll Hunt happening at Dench Designs? There’s also two new freebies out at Trompe Loeil as part of the “Stay at Home” campaign. I’m super excited to tell you all about these awesome freebies, so keep reading!

Dench Designs

Toilet paper is a hot topic right now, for a number of reasons that no one wants to discuss here. However, to help lighten the mood and give us all a little something to do Dench Designs put together a free Toilet Roll Hunt. There are 10 toilet paper rolls hidden throughout the store. Each roll is free and contains a furniture or décor gift. Once you’ve teleported to Dench Designs, click the TP Hunt sign for a notecard with hints to the location of all 10 TP rolls. Have fun, and happy hunting!

Trompe Loeil

I’m sure by now you’ve seen the “Stay at Home” gifts popping up all over the grid. Trompe Loeil has continued their participation and has two new gifts out for free in honor of staying at home. This week the free gifts at Trompe Loeil are a highly detailed A-frame cabin and a set of camp chairs with PG poses. All you need to do to pick up these awesomely generous gifts is head over to Trompe Loeil and purchase them for zero linden.

Free and Native Spirit

Native Imaginarium

Who doesn’t like gachas and gifts?! The Imaginarium has started and you’ll find both at this event. I picked up several of the free Imaginairum event group gifts, and played the Petite Mort gacha machine, so I’ve got a lot to share with you. Let’s start with the free stuff!

Imaginairum Group Gifts

All the gifts at the Imaginarium are free. They also require the Imaginarium group, which is free to join. While wearing the group tag, just click the gift box at each participating booth. Most of the boxes are purple. A few of the designers recolored/textured the package.

Why Not?

Many designers put out a free gift, Why Not? put out 2 free gifts for this round of Imaginarium. First, a beautiful piece of wall art with the following written in pretty script: Sometimes you just have to throw on a crown and remind them who they’re dealing with. I’ve heard that saying before, and it always makes me smile. The 2nd gift from Why Not? is a cute primary colored bird house complete with grass and flowers for your yard. Why Not? has 2 booths at the Imaginarium (they are right next to each other). You’ll find 1 free gift at each booth.

Kaya’s Ray of Sunshine 

The Imaginarium gift by Kaya’s is the adorable armoire with the wood cutout tree and blackbird. It comes in the single color version shown. The fun part of this cute freebie is that the cabinet doors, and the drawers all open! Look for this free gift at the booth with the “Vooma Vaccum” gacha.

Inkme

The free Imaginarium gift by Inkme is a cute little stool with a mandala pattern on the cushion. This stool has 4 individual sit poses, and can be copied so you can rez out multiples. The pose menu also has an “adjust” option as well so you can adjust your pose.

RatzCatz

The last of the free Imaginarium gifts for this post comes from RatzCatz. The cute decorative jars with pretty pastel eggs inside are perfect for getting ready for spring and the Easter holiday. Again, don’t forget you’ll need the free Imaginarium group tag.

Petite Mort

I am admittedly partial to Petite Mort’s gachas, it’s true. I just can’t help it when each of these furniture and decor gacha sets are so beautiful. This livingroom gacha set at Imaginarium is called “Native Spirit” and it has an elegantly comfortable southwestern feel. There are 12 total items, including 1 Rare, and an event exclusive which is awarded after 20 pulls. This gacha will cost you just 50 linden per play. The exclusive is a shabby chic table and chairs set. The sofa and armchair both have single sit poses, as do the ottomans, and the metal accent chair. I’ve included the gacha key for this gorgeous set below, and a full list of items in the credits. Have fun Fab Free!

Twisted Kitty Creations

Twisted Kitty Creations

It’s time to get twisted Fab Free’rs, just not in the way you might think. A new round of The Twisted Hunt has started and this one has 62 stops. The prizes are free, you just have find them among the many decoys. I scored this furniture set by Kitty Creations for free by finding their Twisted Hunt prize box. I should say by finding the correct box, there are quite a few decoys on this stop.

Included in the free Twisted Hunt prize package at Kitty Creations are the sofa, 2 end tables, and a coffee table. The sofa has an abundance of solo, cuddle, and adult intimate animations. The coffee table has a touch menu that will let you choose to rez décor (shown) or wine. I paired this set with a rug from Petite Mort, and I am pretty pleased with the results. All the furniture is copy-able so you can rez multiples. There are no hints for this hunt, so all I can do from here is wish you the best of luck!

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.”

Boho Christmas

Boho Christmas

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.

The Last Supper

The Last Supper

“Oh Storax Tree! Oh Strax Tree! The Fab Free gift and kitty cats are lovey!” – sang to the tune of “Oh Christmas Tree.”

Happy weekend Fab Free! Sometimes the freebies and cheapies you find are worth singing about, you know? It also helps that the Strax Tree name really lends itself well to Christmas carols. haha That said, I did pick up the Fabulously Free in SL group gift, and one of the 10 linden items from The Cart Sale by Storax Tree. Keep reading for more details.

Fab Free Group Gift

First, this fantastic green loveseat is the free group gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members at Storax Tree. This gift is no mod, no transfer, but it is copy so you can rez multiple. It also has resize scripts, and several animated sits, some of which have props. The accent pillow also changes texture when clicked. To get this free gift just head to Storax Tree and click the gift vendor while wearing your Fab Free group tag. Need a Fab Free group tag? Not to worry, there’s a group joiner at Storax Tree and the group is free to join.

The Cart Sale     

Storax Tree has lots of seriously discounted goodies at The Cart Sale. I could not resist picking up the pair of cats shown in my photo. Titled “Feline Autumn Meeting” these cats are just 10 linden and include a patch of grass and pebbles so they settle nicely into an outdoor or otherwise rustic setting. They can also be purchased in several colors/fur patterns. Like the furniture, these little guys have resize scripts too. Don’t miss out on these, for just 10 linden at The Cart Sale they are too cute to pass up.

Uber Elegant


Uber Elegant

If you haven’t made it to Uber yet, I highly suggest going. I know we’ve shown several of the fashion related gifts here on the blog from this birthday round of Uber. So today I thought I’d show a few of the furniture and décor freebies. There are actually quite a few décor items, and some furniture pieces to be had for free at Uber. I picked a handful of the ones I felt went well together. Keep reading for a little info about each one.

Foxwood

The adorable purple Love birds in their gilded cage are the free Uber Bday gift by Foxwood. I can’t get over how cute they are. The gift includes the caged pair shown, and a little solo Love bird that will perch on your shoulder when worn, or wherever you place it.

Di’Cor

The gorgeous wall clock is the free gift at Uber from Di’Cor. Not only does it look elegant, it actually tells the time, SLT of course. It also has that mashup I like of retro and modern styles together.

Llorisen

The lacquered console table is the free Happy Birthday Uber gift by Llorisen. It has a sleek modern look that pairs well with most décor. It also has a color change menu when touched with 5 solid color choices.

Kraftwork

The free gift at Uber by Kraftwork is the sweet little pop-up book sitting on the table. I love the playful colors. It says this is a “children’s” popup book, but I like it as cute décor for a lived-in home look too.

Second Spaces

The pale teal file boxes are the free Uber gift by Second Spaces. The gift includes these pretty little file boxes in the 3 side by side version shown, a group of 5, and a stack of 3. Also, these office décor file boxes are copy so you can set out multiples.

P.S. The backdrop used for this photo is a group gift at Foxcity. The Foxcity group has a join fee of 550 linden and there are quite a few group gift poses and backdrops available. 

P.S.S. I mentioned this before, but I want to mention it again. One of the huge number of gifts at Uber does require the Uber event group tag. I cannot recall which one. The Uber group is however free to join. Happy Shopping!

KittyCats and Silence at SL16B


KittyCats SL16B Kitties

There is just about a day and a half left of Second Life’s Sweet Sixteen Birthday Celebration. With that in mind I thought I’d share with you a pair of the cutest KittyCats. Why? They’re the free SL16B birthday gift by KittyCats of course! These adorable fur babies are fully functioning versions of the KittyCats pets that can breed in exclusive SL16B style. There’s a male and a female cat included with the gift, along with some food to get you started. Please note that these cats, unlike the others, are no transfer. If you’re not familiar with KittyCats and how they work, I’d suggest checking out the KittyCats in-world store for all the latest information. There are actually quite a few spots you can pick these adorable little guys up for free. I’ll add in those links below. Also, if you’re unfamiliar with KittyCats, yes, they are tiny now, but they’ll grow! Here’s maybe the coolest part, this year for the first time ever these KittyCats when bred will have an exclusive kitten, shown below!

Where to get the SL16B Edition KittyCats:

KittyCats Shop
SL16B So Cal
SL16B Incredible
SL16B Exhilarate

P.S. These KittyCats will be available for 2 weeks following the SL16B Event at the KittyCats Shop!

Atomic Pink

I’m sure you noticed the retro fabric behind the kitties in the top photo. It belongs to this smashing pink sofa by Silence. The “Atomic” sofa is another free SL16B gift. I’m not sure if it will be available after the event or not, so do not wait to pick this up! The sofa is PG with individual and couples poses. You can pick up this cool piece of furniture for free at the SL16B Tinseled region until July 8th.

Happy Shopping Fab Free, and Happy Sweet Sixteen to all of Second Life!

Late Afternoon


Late Afternoon

Hello Fab Free’rs! Sometimes you just need to sit and have a quiet moment. Yesterday was that kind of day for me, nothing sad or unfortunate, just some quiet time to reflect. It was good, and needed. I also had a little bit of time to pick up some recent group gifts that I’m happy I get to share with you. Keep reading and as always, I’ll give you all the information about each of these fabulous finds.

The Outfit – Pru’s cute froggy top and plaid pants are the latest free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by C!L. You can’t see it as well in my photo, but the shirt is cropped and knotted in the front. I love this for a cute casual Valentine look. The outfit comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic avatars. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, you should be! The Fab Free group is always free to join.
