Garden Dreams

It’s Officially Open!

Aline recently posted all the details about the Second Life birthday celebrations here, so make sure to check out her post. SL19B is officially open now, so all can teleport in (if you can make it)! As you may know, every booth has a free gift and there are 20 sims and 400 stores this round. Personally, I went about it by starting at the Zinnia region in the northwest corner and move clockwise to complete the event rejion-by-region. Here’s a map of the 20 regions that Dreamer’s Virtual World posted on their blog if you need a reference point! Use the “World Map” to track your progress and this map will come up on your screen; you will see what direction your avatar is moving in with the map open. This one will take you a while!

Care for a Pergola?

This pretty pergola (the large wooden structure) is a free gift from Noveny @ SL19B. This is a really pretty gift, and I set up a garden scene to showcase it. I’m also showing some discounted decor available from [QE Home] @ SL19B, so check out my credits to see these 50% off home and decor promotions. You will find many sales at the 19th birthday celebrations from 20%-75% off at each store. It’s time to get some discounted shopping in as well as free gift collection! Some of the sales are as good as Black Friday!

Purple Daisies

Lunaria has a tonne of Midnight Madness Board prizes at their store for all to play for free, and no group join is required to get them. The pretty purple daisies with ground cover in my scene are from the boards. For these boards, you just tap all of them, and you get entered into the contest until they fill up. They don’t time out at midnight, so you are guaranteed to win all the MM prizes!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Resting Place

12789 (1)

Hey FabFree. I’m just relaxing in my backyard this early morning. I’m enjoying the fresh spring air and can feel the moisture of dew on my face. I’m in for a long day today, but I can take this moment to breathe, relax, and enjoy before things get too busy.

Treasure

My colourful hairstyle is a free hunt prize at Alli&Ali Designs. They have an Easter Treasure hunt still out until April 30th. You are looking for baskets of eggs around the store. It’s best to check with the store news elf to get hints to help you find all 12 baskets, which contain hairstyles for both men and women.

750L for Free

Trend has free store credit available once again. This time, the occasion is the creator’s RL 25th birthday, and they are giving out a whopping 750L of store credits! You need to join their group to get the offer, which is temporarily free to join. I got 2 fatpacks of applier makeup with my credit. My eyeshadow and lipstick are from these fatpacks, and they come in many different colour options.  The free store credit and group join are available until April 29th, and the credits expire on the 30th.

Sizes Included (eyeshadow)

  • Lelutka Evolution
  • Lelutka EvoX

Sizes Included (lipstick)

  • Lelutka Evolution
  • Lelutka EvoX
  • Genus
  • Catwa HD & PRO

A Garden Rest

This pretty outdoor bed with flowers growing on it is the latest FabFree group gift at Kim’s Kreations. This is the perfect little nook to relax in outside. My favourite part is the little bird at the bottom. Just join the free FabFree group and head over to Kim’s Kreations to get it. Remember to pick up all the other gifts while you are there too!

I’m going to curl up in here to have a nap now. See you later!

Decor Galore

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I am getting cozy in my PJs and enjoying this pretty new bed set I found! My entire decor scene is made of free hunt prizes and group gifts today. I have some time-sensitive freebies to share in this post, so I’m going to jump right to it so you can get them too!

I Love Kazza

I was delighted to discover that Kazza is participating in the Aurelias Egg Hunt. This hunt ends today, so go ASAP to get their hunt prizes! Both of Kazza’s prizes are free, and you are looking for eggs on the sim to find them. The first prize is the “BytheSea” bed, which comes in Adult and PG versions with options to change the colour of the bedsheets to blue and white or pink and white. The second prize is the carpet, pillows, and table. The pillows include animations that are meant to be used on the carpet. I’m in love with these finds, and they are my personal favourites from the Easter season this year. Don’t delay and collect up the prizes today before it’s too late.

New at Noveny

I’m not sure how new these gifts are at Noveny, but they were new to me! All of their gifts are by the landing point. Here are the gifts I am showing from Noveny in my scene this morning:

  • The rectangular wall shelf with the plant and sculpture on it is a TeleportHub group gift. Just join the TeleportHub group for 10L and the gift is yours for no cost!
  • The leaf-shaped wall structure is a group gift for members of Noveny’s group. Their group currently costs 30L to join. This is a pretty cool item, because the Noveny logo is a leaf and it’s a nice homage to the store! You can resize the shelves to fit your needs. You may choose to decorate these shelves with smaller decor items (plants, food, books, etc.) to make your scene look pretty.
  • The little lightbulb sculpture that I decorated the shelf with is another Noveny group gift. If you look closely inside the lightbulb, there is dirt and a small tree growing inside it. This is a “terrarium” and it’s really pretty. The Noveny group has some other group gifts as well and they give out gift cards sometimes so it’s worth the join fee if you love home and decor items.

Enjoy decorating your homes, FabFree! I’m going to go back to lounging in my PJs on this fine morning. 😉

Decorate It With Hearts

Coming Soon

Hey, FabFree! Valentine’s day is coming up so soon and I am getting in the mood by decorating my house with heart-pattered furniture and heart-shaped balloons.

Shop & Hop Time!

There’s only a couple of days left to hit the Valentine Shop and Hop. I was so impressed with the gifts this round! I am showing a few fabulous gifts from the event including:

  • This great chair with pillows is free at the booth from Famous.
  • A gorgeous pair of heels from WellMade, that fit Belleza, Legacy, Maitreya & Slink. The shoes come in 10 colour options on a patterned texture. You can grab them here.
  • My necklace, earrings and ring are all free gifts at Ysoral’s booth. You have to join the Glorious Days group for free to get these gifts. Each jewelry piece includes a colour hud to change the colour of the metals and the gems. Grab it at their booth here.

Hunt for Valentine’s

There are so many Valentine’s Day hunts going on right now and I can’t keep up with them all! I am showing 2 hunt prizes by Ari-Pari that you can collect until February 28th.

The adorable dress is only 1L on the Stupid Cupid Hunt. The dress has a scribble heart pattern on it, like cute heart doodles drawn in pen in a notebook. I love this dress, and it has been one of my favourite Valentine’s finds this season. It includes several colour options in the same style.

Sizes Included

  • Physique
  • Hourglass
  • Lara
  • Legacy
  • Freya
  • Venus
  • Isis
  • Kupra

The nail polish applier I have on is another hunt prize at Ari-Pari on the Body Art Hunt. It includes 10 bright and glittery nail polish colours. It only costs 1L on the hunt!

Appliers Included

  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • Omega

Christmas Home Sweet Home

Christmas Home Sweet Home

Hey Hey FabFree! I hope y’all aren’t tired of hearing about freebies and Advent Calendars yet. I have to confess, I get a little frustrated with the Calendars. I never see what the day’s gift is till too late… then I have to pay for it or they don’t let you have it at all! I could say a few more things or mention a few shops… but this is a family friendly blog **grrrr**  ANYway this all leads me to my post today!

Trompe Loeil, one of my most fav home and garden designs has a wonderful Advent Calendar up for us! Yes, I know I just growled about the Calendars but this one is special. See, Trompe Loeil has set ALL of the twelve free gifts out for their 12 days of Christmas at once! It a HUNT! I love it. You can collect as many or as few as you want plus you get to wander the SIM ad have the fun of a hunt. So Cool!

Now, I won’t kid you… this isn’t the easiest of hunts. I pulled a few handfuls of hair out searching. But it’s not Twisted hunt tricky. There’s no decoys or anything like that. Here’s my big hint: Searching door to door. 😉

You have until Dec. 30th to get your hunt on. But if hunting isn’t your thing, Trompe Loeil also has two past years of gifts available for free as well. No group needed! SO Merry Christmas to us!

One quick note: Please read the instructions for the hunt. You need to pick up the free Hunt Hunt as well as the hunt gift boxes. Then you REZ the HUD on your property ( or a sandbox) then REZ each gift box beside the HUD. As you rez, you will be offered the prize via menu.

Ana Lee Baluti (also known as ALB) currently has a free VIP group join promotion, but I don’t know how long it will be open. Get in while you can!

Free Furniture Pack for New Residents!

dench_001

Hey Fabbies!

I am still here!  Yours truly has been dealing with some rather hairy real life issues (still am!), but I haven’t forgotten you all!  My computer time is limited at the moment but I am hoping to be back to normal sooner rather than later!

So tonight I snuck in to show you something really special for those new to second life!  Amanda at Dench Designs has put together a free bundle of furniture and decor that new residents can pick up at her shop.  This starter pack is available free for any new residents under 30 days, just go to the shop, click the board to the right of the welcome desk and collect all this furniture and more!  Aside from the items I have shown here, there is also a fireplace, bathroom set up and campfire!

Amanda mentioned to me that she will be continuing to add more goodies to this pack as time goes on.  In looking at the sign she has up at the shop, she is already adding some garden goodies as well as a cute vanity for the bedroom area!

Even if you are older than 30 days, Dench Designs has some amazing finds, and all of the prices are super affordable and you will get well made items with lots of great poses!  Her Halloween store is a blast and I am sure I will be visiting that soon, since Halloween will be here before we know it!  (I’m not ready for the summer to end!!)

There’s No Place Like Home

decor_006

Hey gang!  For today’s finds, I am taking you inside my humble abode, and also to our new Fab Free Headquarters!  So travel around the grid with me if you will!  We Fab Free sisters live and breathe freebies and deals so that means we use them in our little corners of the grid, just like y’all do!  We try to set a good example by *trying* to live frugally! (not always easy!  hee hee)

So, let’s get started, as I have a lot to show you.  Above is my kitchen table area, I did this with a kitchen set from Careless (I didn’t even put everything out!) that cost me only 49L.  It’s super cute and I added a couple of odds and ends from them too.  The poses are great too, really well made stuff!

Below is my living room.  My couch and chair are a set, also from Careless, but they are a group gift meaning they are free cause the group is free to join as well!  If this color isn’t your thing, you guessed it, she has other colors for 49L!  The cute Tulips on my mantle?  10L at Careless.  The little trees with lights are from Caro Designe on market and you can get them for 50L.

decor_009

Below you can see I used the little trees from Caro in more than one place, they are just sooo pretty!  The pink Paris themed dresser with fairy lights?  That’s one of my creations and you can grab that at Shanti for only 50L!

decor_003

Here is another market find that I absolutely love, these little lantern lights from What Next.  You can grab these on their marketplace store for only 10L!  They are stunning, let me tell you!  You can of course put them anyplace you like, I strung them along my fence by the pool.

decor_001

Lastly, I don’t know how many of you have had a chance to pop by and check out the new headquarters yet, but in keeping with the fab free spirit, the house we used is of course free.  It’s a free group gift from Greymoon Designs (who has adorable houses!  I live in one (and own several!  lol!), and the group is only 50L to join.  When you join, you can grab a bunch of cute houses on the group gifts wall and here is the one we used (C-Side Cottage):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

A quick peek at the inside (but go see it in person eh?):

The New Fab Free Headquarters!

(btw the umbrella shaped lamp is from LISP Bazaar and is only 50L on market!)

The landscaping I used is mostly from Lunaria and the trees with sparkles in them are both free group gifts from Lunaria and that group is free to join.  I love her stuff!

PS Don’t let Aline fool you, she did half of the amazing decorating too!  It was an awesome team effort!

Well there you have it gang, another Caroline style post from me chock full of fab free style goodness!
