Blooming in the Depth of Winter

Blooming in the Depth of Winter

There’s nothing quite as refreshing as some blooms in the middle of winter.  When you think about how outside (at least in my part of the world) is cold and barren, with many months to go until things start to poke their heads out of the earth, it is comforting to think that you can grow some pretties indoors.  And if you don’t have a green thumb, virtual blooms will do just fine!

Cozyfest Continues

Yesterday, I told you about the 50L items you can pick up at Cozyfest, but today I’m showing off some of the free gifts that are just as delightful.  To get these gifts, just join the Fifty Linden Fridays group for free, and click on the box located at each stall. Here’s what I grabbed:

  • FREE dress by CandyDoll sized for Freya, Hourglass, Hourglass Petite, Legacy, Maitreya & V-Tech
  • FREE lollipop by Lyrium
  • FREE flowers and table by Kraftwork

It’s all just so lovely!  What a fab event.  It’s still quite busy, so if you can’t get in, don’t despair –  you have until February 4th.

Keep on blooming, FabFree!

Home for the Holidays

Home for the Holidays

One of my favourite things to do in SL around this time of year is to decorate my virtual spaces.  I remember the first time I ever decorated my “Fiji Beach Hut” back like, 12 years ago with blingy prims and flat Christmas stockings.  I surveyed my kingdom and thought “it can’t get better than this! A virtual Christmas!”.  I was wrong, it gets better every single year with detailed decor, sparkling lights, and amazing gifts.

Hunting Time!

There are plenty of hunts going on right now around the grid, and one that I truly enjoyed was the sweet and simple (and free!) hunt at Ionic.  You won’t lose your head searching for the dark blue and starry gift bags on their sim, just have a little wander and enjoy the decor in the little main street.  It feels like you’re Christmas shopping and looking through cute boutiques.  There are 10 home decor gifts here – cakes, cabinets, a fireplace, a chair…. all sorts, and they’re all gorgeous.  To take part, join the Ionic group for free, then click on the little bags.  Much fun!

Spell it Out!

The latest group gift at Kraftwork is super fun.  The set of “Let it Snow” blocks you see on the bottom right of my scene are just one of the options of things you can spell with these super cool blocks – you get a whole alphabet and symbols to decorate whatever you wish with.  You can also resize them using the edit function so you can make them bigger or smaller to fit your space.  The Kraftwork group is free to join, and there are plenty of awesome decor gifts here!  What are you going to spell?

Have fun decorating!

Unwrapping the Idea

Unwrapping the Idea

Do you hear the distant jingling of bells?  Yes, it’s still kinda distant – but for those of us who want to start prepping for the season of Advent and jollity, then there are some places that are set up and ready for all your hall-decking needs.  My whole thought process today is the idea of starting to get the decor out, the opening of the yearly boxes, getting ready to…get ready!  You can’t blame me for wanting a bit of celebratory spirit!

Snowdrops

All these lovely decor items are free gifts that I picked up at Snowdrops.  It’s a really lovely winter sim, all decked out as a small town that’s ready for holiday shopping.  Most of the stores in the main square have a free gift for everyone – no need to join a group.  I picked up the goodies from Pitaya, Kraftwork, Atelier Burgundy and Zerkalo, and now my Christmas decorating plans are all starting to take shape.  I’m not sure how long these gifts will be around, so you’ll forgive me for being *just a little* early with my bell tinkling – I want to make sure you get your mitts on the gifts!

Holly Jolly!

Hello Fabsters! I’ve missed you SO much!! I sadly was forced to stay offline due to the flu, *no thank god, not corona* but I’m limping back into my duties with a new gift from Paper.Sparrow. As you know, I dislike sharing my own shop items as I feel like it’s a conflict of interest. However, it is my way of saying I love ya to everyone here and in the shop. SO for the news that will spark your interest and make you smile, I’ve made the group FREE to join until November 30th, per the traditional PRE-Advent Join ❤

It’s the perfect time of the year for two things: first, clambering through the woods and second – The Wash Event!

In Dark Water

It’s always nice when the weather turns cool to have a fun event to look forward to.  The Wash churns out a great discount event several times per year, and this season’s is no different.  You’ll find plenty to love, just like I did!  My first stop was the Dark Water Designs display.  This floral jumper gives me all the right 90’s feels that are perfect for this time of year!  If florals aren’t your jam, then there are some really nice plaids too.  Best of all, this top and jumper set only costs 30L.  Oh, and there’s even an iced coffee in the box for you. Perfect!

It’s Fall Y’all!

It's Fall, Y'all!

Ok, it’s officially Fall now, y’all!  It’s the season of warm colours, falling leaves, and so many lovely delights.  I love decorating for the Autumn, as is evidenced by all the fall decor I found in my inventory!  Are you ready to collect some more for your own pile of decorations?  Let’s do it!

House Proud

Ok, so Trompe L’Oeil is back to offering an awesome free gifts in the spirit of Stay at Home, and I couldn’t be more excited.  This amazing house can be yours for free, no need to join a group!  Just head over to the Trompe L’Oeil mainstore, and buy the house for 0L.  You’ll also find some lovely chairs there too (you can just see it on the porch in my photo), which are great for indoor or outdoor settings.  So awesome!  Now, I’m not sure exactly how long this house will be available as the Stay at Home club is closing in just 4 days.  However, Trompe L’Oeil’s Flickr account tells me it will be out for a few weeks.  Go get it!

Welcome Fall!

The pretty Autumn-themed letter blocks you see in front of the house are the latest group gift at Kraftwork.  They are just so lovely!  You can spell out anything you like with these blocks, as there are letters, numbers, symbols and even just plain blocks in wood or with the wreath design.  What a cool gift!  The Kraftwork group is free to join, and you’ll find plenty of group gifts on their wall.  Have fun!

Time for a PSL, methinks!
