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.

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!

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.

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!

Fairy Magic for your Garden

Coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

The fun and excitement of hunting for fairies and collecting beautiful gifties in the Fab Free Enchanted Forest Hunt continues!  (It continues until July 22!), and today I am sharing with you this gorgeous (my photo doesn’t do it justice!) giftie that you can get at Dreamland Designs for the hunt.

This twinkles and sparkles in person, which I couldn’t capture in my pic so you just have to get it and see it in world.  I am loving this in my garden!  It’s got a bench with animations, so you can hang out by yourself, with friends or even make it a romantic hang out with that someone special! (wink wink!)

This is a 1L prize that you don’t want to miss!

Weary of the indoors Blue and I retreated to the sanctuary of our own backyard. Relaxing in our comfiest attire, and enjoying the fresh air, the rest of the world and all its troubles seemed to melt away, at least for the moment.

Enchanted Easter

Enchanted Easter

Hello Fab Free, thanks for being here. My guy Blue and I were talking the other day and he started telling me about a dollarbie hunt a Simply Shelby that had lots of purple, unicorns, crystals, and fanciful things. I didin’t need to hear anything else. Are you kidding me? Unicorns, crystals, and lots of purple? I was in!

There are 12 pink, blue, or yellow Easter eggs hidden around the grounds at Simply Shelby for the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. This hunt will last from now until April 14th.  All the prize eggs are priced at just 1 linden each. In each egg there is a landscaping or décor item that is either Easter or fantasy themed, and most of them include the color purple. With the exception of the flowery grass filling in, everything in the above scene is a dollarbie hunt prize.

Lastly, there are 2 additional shops with their own prizes as part of the Starry Skies Easter Egg Hunt. I’ve included the ad for this hunt below to give you a preview. If you click on the hunt sign at any participating location, you should get a notecard with some hunt information and the landmarks to all 3 participating locations.

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Tiptoeing Through the Tulips

These Boots

Hello again Fab Free’rs, and welcome back to the blog! I’ve got group gift goodness from Eudora, Carol G, and Lunaria to share with you today. These boots may or may not have been made for walking but they sure look cute on. They also happen to be a new group gift at Eudora. My leg tattoo is also a group gift. This tattoo is one of several group gifts at Carol G. Lastly, if you’re doing any landscaping on a budget I suggest heading over to Lunaria and picking up one or all of their many group gifts. Keep reading for more details, or scroll on down to the bottom for full credits and links.

Eudora

I love the detail in these high heeled boots by Eudora. They are the most recent group gift at Eudora with a one time group join fee of 50 linden. The boots come in a Maitreya fit only, with a loose fit option. They also have a texture change hud so you can wear the brown and tan version shown, or a gorgeous black version of the boot. The hud also allows you to pick from a few presets for the color of the sole and the metal parts of the shoe.

Carol G

This whimsical inspirational tattoo is one of quite a few group gift tattoos at Carol G. Also, there are several male tattoo gifts. This particular gift reads “Moved by the freedom to be who it is” which I think is a lovely sentiment. The tattoo comes in several appliers. There are also 2 mini mania boards, and a free tattoo raffle for Carol G group members. The group has a one time join fee of 250 linden. Lastly, while this is not a “new” gift, it has been updated to included Legacy body appliers.

Appliers Included: Maitreya, Belleza, Omega, Legacy, Slink

Lunaria

I love fall and winter, however I think I’ve been secretly missing spring. Feeling the desire to add some spring-like elements to my landscape without spending a lot of linden, I decided to poke around at Lunaria. Much to my delight I found quite a few free group gifts for all seasons, and there are lucky letter boards with clothing items. Not to mention the fact that the Lunaria group is free to join. I picked up this pretty pink tulip field for free just by joining the free group and clicking the gift vendor.

Here are the details:

Goldfish

Goldfish Pond
Goldfish are one of the many little creatures that I have an unexplainable affinity for. I even have a goldfish tattoo in my real life. I think it goes without saying that I “needed” this goldfish pond in my Second Life.  The above photo is a very close up picture of the free Medieval Fantasy Hunt prize by Simply Shelby. This Japanese inspired pond comes with 2 types of optional animated goldfish to swim merrily through the water. The goldfish also have animated tails so that they don’t just glide motionlessly, they actually appear to swim. This pretty landscape item by Simply Shelby is again a free gift on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt. The hunt object is a little bonsai tree. Happy Hunting!

Hint – Cool your toes with the pixie.

The Wildflower Ruins

Wild Flower Ruins
Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! I have something a little different for you today. The gorgeous setting above is one of several 30 Linden Saturday sale items at Simply Shelby. Before I go on about all the cool features of this piece, I want to point out that this is last Saturday’s sale item. That means that it is only available for 30 lindens through the end of Friday. After Friday, there will be new sale items. This cool scene comes in a rez box for easy setup. Everything pictured is included. the rocks, the flowers, even the adorable deer.  Also, this scene by Simply Shelby has a few extra  items in the package. The optional add-ons include animated fish, swimming ducks, and a sunbeam for extra detail. Aptly named the Wildflower Ruins, this set also has several built in individual and couple’s poses. I don’t mind telling you I did test the poses, and they are all l quite nice. To get your copy of this fantastic set just head over to Simply Shelby and go to the building that says “Sales” and you’ll find all the current 30 Linden Saturday sale items. There are several items, so I have added an additional photo below. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Don’t forget! These are last week’s 30 Linden Saturday sale items at Simply Shelby. They will change this Saturday!
