The Get Crabby Hunt!

Get Crabby Hunt

I’ve been having lots of fun this month blogging the Spoonful of Sugar Festival. You can see my past posts on this complex and huge event here and here. Today I’m introducing you to another aspect of this event. On top of the main event, they have a hunt going on, which takes place at Get Crabby Hunt Island. As you explore the Sim, the hunt object you are looking for is a crab! This is a paid hunt, and a group join fee is required to participate in it. The group costs 500L to join. Pictures of all the Get Crabby Hunt prizes are posted on their hunt web page HERE. You will see group joiners for the hunt group at Get Crabby Hunt Island. You can also pick up a crab plushie and crab hats as a group gift there as well if you decide to join the hunt group. Here is the link to the hunt group to join if you have trouble finding it. Again, be warned that the group costs 500L to join.

Note that 100% of the funds that are spent towards the Get Crabby Hunt are being donated to Doctors Without Borders, and the designers do not make any profits from this hunt. It’s very kind of the creators out there to make all those products and to put them up for a benefit. Sometimes we don’t recognize how hard creators work to give us gifts, but to go the extra mile to donate beautiful products to a fundraiser that gives back to society shows how incredible the creative community in Second Life is. Doctors Without Borders is an organization that provides medical care to people around the world as a result of war, conflicts, and other crises. The Spoonful of Sugar Festival donated over 100, 000 real-life American dollars from this event in the last 7 years, and I hope these donations can help those in need around the world this year too! The Get Crabby Hunt ends on September 18th, so if you plan to do this hunt make sure you get to it well before this date so you have time to find all the prizes.

I am showing two hunt prizes from the Get Crabby Hunt and another 10L find from the Spoonful of Sugar Festival today as featured items, so keep reading for all the details!

Do you Love to Mix & Match?

First off, the fabulous outfit I have on is an absolute must-have! This is the Get Crabby Hunt prize from MOoH!. This outfit includes a bikini top, a skirt and bikini bottoms (which are worn under my skirt). This is a versatile set because you can wear it as a bikini, a full outfit or separates. The outfit comes with a number of funky patterns you can apply to the separate parts via a colour change HUD, so mixing and matching is possible. Plain classic colours that are included in the hud are red, white, light violet, dark plum and pink. Pattern options include florals, skulls, a dragon pattern (shown here) and some other fun patterns. You can see the possibilities of mixing and matching the texture options in this outfit in the vendor photo below.

Sizes Included

  • Lara
  • Petite
  • Kupra
  • Reborn
  • Mounds

Melinda outfit

Pineapple, Bora Bora

The second hunt prize I am featuring is a wonderful painting of a pineapple made by Katherine Littlepaws, who owns Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery. This painting is just fantastic- it looks so realistic, colourful and expressive! The background is fantastic with the collage elements the artist has included. This is a prize on the Get Crabby Hunt.

Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery also has another painting on a special promotion for only 10 Lindens at their Spoonful of Sugar Festival booth. The get to the exact spot where you can grab the painting, go  here. The item on sale for this low price is the small colourful painting shown in my photo on top of the pineapple piece. Note that this smaller painting is not part of the hunt, so anyone can purchase it and no group is required to buy it for 10L. 100% of the proceeds spent on this painting are given to Doctors Without Borders.

Phew, that was a lot of information! Have fun, FabFree! I’m off to go get a tropical cocktail now. I deserve it after all that writing. 😉

My Autumn Gallery

My Autumn Gallery

Welcome To The Fall Showing

Fall is my favourite decorating season. I put up a little autumn gallery made up of art I picked up at the Fall Festival, a fall-themed event that is running until October 1st at Malus Park. I have a couple of 50L pieces and a free painting to show you from this event, so check out the following designer’s booths to get these fall art pieces for a fabulous price!

  • The painting with the woman and the fall leaves is a free gift from Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery.
  • The “Pumpkin Season” framed artwork is 50L from Cotton Blossom Artwork.
  • The “Fall is my Favorite Color” framed poster is also 50L, and you will also find this art work in Cotton Blossom Artwork’s booth.

On Me

  • My outfit is a free lucky board prize at Shanti. No group join is required to play the boards. This prize is called the “Upside Down Bohemian Outfit”. This is a Stranger Things reference for all the fans of the popular supernatural 80’s-era Netflix series. The set includes a top and skirt which can be worn separately. The outfit is textured with a black and white pattern which looks perfect for Halloween coming up! It fits Freya, Isis, Venus, Ebody Classic, Lara, Physique, Legacy, and Tonic Curvy & Fine.
  • The choker and earrings I am wearing are from The Arcade, and they are 50L per play from Heartsdale Jewellery. You can see a key below of all the pretty prizes available. There are 12 pieces of jewelry from this designer to collect at the September round of The Arcade, which is available to play until September 30th. If you need more information about how The Arcade works, please read Aline’s recent post here which explains it much better than I can!

The Arcade Collection

Enjoy the show, FabFree!

Coffee Time

Coffee Time

Morning FabFree! Go grab a cup of coffee before reading this one! ☕ I have a whole bunch of home and decor freebies and sales to show you this morning, so you will need some caffeine to go shopping later!

This Girl Needs Coffee, Pronto!

I have been wanting to put a decor scene together to show off all the cute decor available for FabFree at Fifteen, so that’s what I’m showing today! The theme is one of my favourite things in the world- COFFEE! Coffee is my lifeblood. Time to get sipping and caffeinated!

  • The “Coffee Time” wall hanging is the free gift for FabFree group members at SLW Design.
  • On the coffee table, you can see the full-priced item from ati. The set includes coffee makers, reusable coffee cups, and two bags of medium and dark roast coffee beans. The set includes holdable coffee cups as well, and when you touch the rezzed ones, there are hold-drink bento animations on touch. This whole amazing set only costs 69 Lindens!
  • The texture used on the floor in my scene is from a set of textures !Stringerized! is giving FabFree group members for free.

Tea Person?

If you’re more of a tea person, FabFree at Fifteen has got you covered too! All of the art in my scene are items available at Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery for the 15th birthday event, and they are all tea-themed! Caffeine is Caffeine, after all.

  • Their 15L item is the two artworks on the left with the teapot that says “tea and cake”, and the one that says “tea” with cute little teacups. The set is called, “Tea makes everything better”. So true! I do love a cuppa’; it’s so relaxing.
  • Their full-priced item is the “Welsh women drinking tea” collage, and it’s just whimsical! I love it. It costs 255 Lindens.
  • Their free gift is the vintage photo frame shown in the top left, to which you can add any photo inside it. I just popped in a patterned texture I had into it for now, but you could add photos of you, your family, and friends in it. It’s such a great gift, and the frame is gorgeous.

Don’t Forget Our Group Gifts!

Lastly, the current free FabFree group gift from Noveny are the shelving units shown in my decor scene. These “pipe shelves” come in two colour versions: “Black Wood” and “Copper Black”. The shelving includes the decorations and the plants. This gift isn’t for FabFree at Fifteen, it is just one of our regular group gifts. For more gifts like this, visit the FabFree Group Groups Listing page. Don’t forget about all the new group gifts available with everything else going on at FabFree this month! You don’t want to miss anything!

Thanks for reading, FabFree! It’s time to go start my Monday, now that I’ve had my big cup of Joe!
