Decorating Therapy

Caroline's Cottage

Hey, FabFree! I was down for a bit of decorating therapy tonight. Yes, usually I am one to indulge in shopping therapy but I just felt like a bit of building, decor-ing and decorating. I pulled out my lovely new modern wooden cottage with these lovely huge glass windows and went ham!  This was my final creation, and it includes some cheap gacha and hunt items, plus a couple free gifts. 

Take a Seat 

On the outside of my cottage, I am showing off items from the Rustic Bench Gacha which you can play at Noveny. The gacha currently costs 25L per pull to play and you can collect the benches in a number of colours and options with or without blankets and pillow. They benches look super cozy and I just want to go sit on them and enjoy the peace of my cottage backyard. The ultra rare includes a colour change hud to change the bench and blanket to a number of colours. The gacha is available to play at the Noveny mainstore this month only.

Subscriber Gifts!

More freebies shown in my post today come from the free subscriber at Noveny. Just walk past the group gifts section at the entrance, and you will see a subscriber board. Slap it and you will receive the LOVE garden sculpture with vines growing on it for free. This freebie is shown in front of one of the wooden rustic benches in my collage above. You should also receive the free beautiful, transparent star lights which I have hanging from the bedroom ceiling in my cottage when you hit the subscriber board. 

I have also put up some seashell paintings from [QE Home] at the front of my cottage. I got these from the Dog Days of Summer hunt. I previously blogged other items on the hunt here. You can pick up these paintings for 25 Linden on the hunt at Short Leash until August 31st.

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!

Geordi (the Giraffe) always holds the chandelier for me when I dance.

He’d like to dance too but he can’t

So he always makes sure the lighting is decadent

Hey gang,

Got a super fun (and cute!) gacha for you today courtesy of our friends at MoOH!  This is the Animal Lamps Gacha which costs 50L a play over at Nerdcon.  (Nerdcon runs until July 31, so you have lots of time to shop.)

My giraffe friend here is a rare but oh my gosh are there some seriously cute goodies in this, the mice with lightbulbs?  Are you kidding me????  Sooooo squeeeeeable!  They are so cute I could just eat them!!!  But I won’t.

You absolutely must go and play this (yes I am bossing you!) because everyone really needs at least one animal in their sl world holding a light for them.  They just make you smile, and who couldn’t use an extra smile or two?  Here is the key:

MOoH! Animal lamps gacha

I definitely think my blogging desk needs a mouse on it with a light, and perhaps one at the Fab Free Headquarters too.  Hmmmmm

I’m off to decorate with some cuteness!  Happy Tuesday y’all!
