Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Don’t pinch me, I’m wearing green… thanks to some fabulous finds courtesy of the Cart Wash Sale and a fun group gift! Don’t worry, I’ll show you where to find the goods too!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My fun shamrock inspired smock is sexy but also practical… and it’s only 10L! It comes in all the standard mesh sizes as well as fitmesh and you can pick it up at the cart wash from Ayva’s Attic. Don’t worry! There were several gorgeous styles that were for after the green day as well, including a daisy print dress I fell in love with. You should totally check this cart out, even if you’re not into green!

And my Brolly! OH it stole my heart! But HURRY! I think it is a TODAY ONLY giftie from JINX Fantasy store! So don’t delay! Get there ASAP and pick up this gorgeous giftie! It is FREE with your Group membership (which is only 5 tiny Linden to join). When you don your group tag and pick up the Jiggly Paddy Brolly, you will find two different Brolly’s in the Umbrella box… one will work with your AO and is just holdable to keep off the rain (or sun). The other… is jiggly! Just turn off your AO and your avi will do a jig which is absolutely fun as can be! You’ll just have to see for yourself. I’m not giving away the surprise!

Are you loving my rooftop furniture? These too can be yours if you stop by the Cart Wash Sale! I picked these up to add a bit of flair to my rooftop and really love them. Both are 10L offerings from Wood Works. The Grape Leaf Bench comes with an assortment of both male and female poses and offers props to go with them as well, such as drinks, books to read, and flowers to hold, and you get the bonus plant to the side as well. The bench is a mere 5 prims and the plant is only 2 prims, making these both really nicely prim conscious and you get both in the same box for you 10L!

I also am showing you Wood Works Shamrock Cushion, which is only 2 prims and 10L at the Cart Wash Sale. I love the casual sits it offers and it would be great for tossing out if you’re having friends over.

That’s it for now… enjoy the green day!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [3]

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [2]

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…

Heat Wave Event – Lok’s Low Prim Furniture

More blogging from the Heat Wave Event! One of the things I love to see is a great Designer for home décor… like, say,  Lok’s Low Prime Furniture have a sale… such as the Heat Wave Cart Sale at the Wash… right when I have a new SL home to fill up with new furniture!

Lok's_001

This could be your new living room! The ‘Berry Sweet Sofa’ here is really the star. The fabric of both the cushions and the throw pillows are customizable with ten color choices. The rug is also has ten color changes and the curtains come in five colors. Plus, the curtains (which I’m using three sets of for this picture) will open and close at a touch. The little fish tank comes with a finny friend who even swims back and forth. The trio of potted plants is resizable to fit into your space perfectly too. The bucket of hydrangeas is Lok’s 50L item and that’s a steal!

The Heat is on at the Heat Wave Event until June 10th, so don’t miss out!

Low Prim Living it up

Hello and welcome back to Monday, FabFree-ers! You know what’s guaranteed to banish the Monday blues? You guessed it – The Cart Sale. As I confessed to Pru the other day: I must have the cart Sale on the brain. Course, it’s hard not to when you see some of the marvelous things at the Wash!  Today, I checked out the Cart from Low Prim Living and I was not disappointed.

Low prim Living it up

This is the ‘Rustic Hutch with Dinnerware’.  For a tiny 6 prims, you get not only the hutch but also the kitchen stool and the pot of flowers. There are texture changes on the stool and the flowers and tons of dinnerware display. There are twenty different flowers to pick from alone!  Just the thing to perk up your kitchen or dining area. If you’re looking for something for the living room or bedroom you might like the Mesh ‘Sweet Dreams Chest’ for only 2 prims. The chest is loaded with five different adjustable sits and Blaze assures me the pillows are very comfy.

The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!

Greetings fashionably fabulous ones!

My  post today is ALL about The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt!  This hunt is based on the classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring Audrey Hepburn.  It’s one of those movies that stands the test of time and did it with fashionable flair.  I won’t give away to many details of the movie, in this post, just in case you want to watch it.  The link I am providing, for The Breakfast at Tiffany’s Hunt, will take you to the page that will give you photos of the hunt items from each creator, SLURLS and hints.  The hunt consists of clothing and home decor items…which I will feature today.  ALL items in the hunt are FREE.

In the first shot I am showing the fabulous outfit from Brii Underground Wear (#5 on the hunt list) and it includes the jacket, pencil skirt, glasses (not worn), makeup (not worn), peeptoe shoes (not worn) and hat.  The Suitcase with Telephone is from Resplendent Rose (#9 on the hunt list) and the projector, table, extra movie reels, tub sofa, cat with no name, record player and projector screen are all part of the Audrey Cinema Set hunt gift from Arcana Antiques & Oddities (#15 on the hunt list).  The cigarette holder, from Bloody Mess, is no longer available.  My Zebra Peeptoe Heels, worn in all photos, are from Babydoll (#95 on the hunt list) for the Sexy and I know it Hunt.  The Sexy and I know it Hunt ended on May 18th but the hunt symbol and shoes were still there when I checked earlier today!

Next we have an outfit from Vips Creations (#42 on the hunt list)…this oufit comes with the pearl necklace, bracelets for left and right wrist, pearl ring (Jewelry not worn), glasses, polkadot dress, clutch, opera gloves & heels (not worn).  The Audrey hair, I’m wearing in all photos, is from Ali&Ali (#21 on the hunt list), the tiara with earrings are the hunt item from Redrose Jewllry (#22 on the hunt list) and the pearl necklace and bracelets are the hunt gift from Eye Candi (#10 on the hunt list).  The Tiffany Tea Table is the hunt gift from Peachy (#53 on the hunt list) and includes the table, chairs and all the sweet goodies on the table.  *I’ll be featuring the rug and Audrey room divider in other photos.
