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.”

Here are the Credits:

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. To get your copy, just join the FaMESHed group (it’s free) and click the gift box at the Trompe Loeil booth at FaMESHed.

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!

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.
