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!

That Cabin Life

That Cabin Life

Hey Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. Did you know there’s a Toilet Roll Hunt happening at Dench Designs? There’s also two new freebies out at Trompe Loeil as part of the “Stay at Home” campaign. I’m super excited to tell you all about these awesome freebies, so keep reading!

Dench Designs

Toilet paper is a hot topic right now, for a number of reasons that no one wants to discuss here. However, to help lighten the mood and give us all a little something to do Dench Designs put together a free Toilet Roll Hunt. There are 10 toilet paper rolls hidden throughout the store. Each roll is free and contains a furniture or décor gift. Once you’ve teleported to Dench Designs, click the TP Hunt sign for a notecard with hints to the location of all 10 TP rolls. Have fun, and happy hunting!

Trompe Loeil

I’m sure by now you’ve seen the “Stay at Home” gifts popping up all over the grid. Trompe Loeil has continued their participation and has two new gifts out for free in honor of staying at home. This week the free gifts at Trompe Loeil are a highly detailed A-frame cabin and a set of camp chairs with PG poses. All you need to do to pick up these awesomely generous gifts is head over to Trompe Loeil and purchase them for zero linden.

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.

Waiting for The Great Pumpkin

Waiting for The Great Pumpkin
Hello again Fab Free’rs! Thanks for being here. Just like Linus, Pru finds a pumpkin patch to wait in for The Great Pumpkin to appear. Maybe one day he’ll actually appear! This particular pumpkin patch complete with little twinkle lights and pumpkin blossoms is a 10 linden Pumpkin Hunt prize by Lunaria at the Fall Festival for Parkinson’s. Each of the stores has a 10 linden pumpkin, and there are additional pumpkins in the shop booths outside. Most if not all the proceeds from the sales of the pumpkins will go to help fund research for Parkinson’s. I can’t think of a better reason to spend 10 lindens!

Along with the dreamy pumpkin patch prize, Pru picked up this cute coffin dress from Grumble. It’s a single strap dress with a spooky cute coffin pattern on the top. The dress is in the 10 linden pumpkin from Grumble at the Fall Festival. It comes in the following sizes: Maitreya Lara, Slink Physique, eBody Curvy, Tonic Fine, Tonic Curvy, Belleza (Freya, Isis, Venus).

Last but not least the long dark hairstyle is one of two 10 linden pumpkin prizes by Firelight at the Fall Festival. This style is called Ophelia. The Ophelia hairstyle Pumpkin Hunt gift comes with a black and white color change hud, and has a tinting hud to allow you to add a tint to either color.

Here are the details, enjoy!

A Crown of Daisies

She Carried Magic Secrets in Her Eyes

Hello there, Fabulous Readers!  As the weekend is wrapping up, I wanted to pop in quickly and share a couple of Fabulous Finds with you.  I hope you like them as much as I do!

She Wore Flowers in Her Hair

Ripley and I headed over to the Medieval Fantasy Fair, and he helped me locate this free gorgeous Daisy Wreath.  The cheerful yellow flowers and bright green leaves lifted my spirits as soon as I put it on.  It fit perfectly over my Ophelia hair from Truth, but it comes with full editing rights, so you can stretch it if need be.  Best of all, once we located the hunt object, a moon with a star and a cloud, it was completely free.  The only cost was a little bit of our time spent searching…. which I didn’t mind at all.  After you arrive at the Fair, head to the Lunaria booth, and the prize is hidden inside.

She Wore Flowers in Her Hair

Bold Floral Print

To coordinate with my lovely daisy crown, I wanted to find a yellow dress, and it took me a few days to settle on just the right frock.  Over at Legendaire, I spotted the Susan Maxi Dress, which comes with a texture change HUD packed with ten choices for the main body of the dress, and 20 options for the bodice section, all for just 59L.  With so many textures to choose from, it was like getting a whole bundle of dresses in one box.  A leather purse is also included, but I decided not to wear it for my photos.  Although I donned the mesh body version, the package also contains mesh for classic avatars as well.  I love wearing maxi dresses in RL, and was thrilled to find such a pretty one in my SL travels.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in XXS, XS, S, M, and L
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Slink Hourglass
  • Slink Physique
  • Venusen

I hope your week gets off to a fantastic start tomorrow.  It’s back to the grindstone for me, and back to guard dog duties for the pupster.  Sometimes I find myself wondering during the day exactly what he is doing.  I have a feeling he spends a lot of his time snoozing until the cats decide to have some fun.  One of my cats, Loki, seems to enjoy teasing poor Ripley from the other side of the gate.  It would be interesting to have a camera set up to catch some footage…

Until my next post, happy shopping!

A Quiet Moment With Idelisa

Solitude

Hello Fabulous Readers!  It was a day to pause and be thankful here in the US as we celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday.  After a dinner with family, the pupster and I spent a peaceful evening at the Kittens Cradle sim.  It’s really a wonderful place to explore!

Introducing…Idelisa

In my past couple of posts {HERE} and {HERE}, I’ve shown you some beautiful Lucky Board prizes available at .Lunaria.  While we were waiting for that elusive “K” to appear, I spotted a gorgeous long gown on the free Daily Prize Board and gave the vendor a tap.  I waited patiently, then as midnight rolled around, “Idelisa” was delivered to my inventory.  A long white, sleeveless gown, with golden trim, this lovely frock features a fitted bodice and a skirt which falls gracefully to floor level.  I really like the way the ivory fabric fades into sparkling golden tones at the hemline.  With sizes for classic avatars, as well as mesh bodies, this free frock will fit a majority of avatars.  The target for the daily prize is just 25, so teleport on over to the shop, invite your friends, and it’s a pretty good bet that the goal of 25 slaps will be met!

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Fit mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • TMP
  • Physique
  • Venus

After our delicious turkey dinner, we sliced into that pumpkin pie I’ve been talking about and it was …. heavenly!  Thank goodness it turned out ok……I’ve been looking forward to it for days! 🙂  Maybe I should make pies more often, but then again, that was RL, not SL, so calories count.  Until my next post, happy shopping!

As Luck Would Have It…

As Luck Would Have It

Hello Fabulouses!  Just a quick post to share a stunning free skirt I picked up as a lucky board prize at .Lunaria.  The Kaelyn maxi skirt falls in a slender line from your hips to about mid-shin length, where it flares as it sweeps the ground for freedom of movement.  Ivory white in color (the windlight setting I used made it look greenish for some reason, but it is white), it features circular adornments at the waistline, which add visual interest.  I really love the sleek, sophisticated look this outfit evokes!  Kaelyn comes in sizes for classic as well as mesh avatars.  To pick up a copy for yourself, simply teleport to the shop, switch to the Lunaria group tag (it’s completely free to join), and cross your fingers.  I was lucky enough to scoop this baby up during my first few minutes of waiting.

Sizes and Mesh Body Compatibility:

  • Mesh in S and M (I don’t see an L in my folder, but that could be a glitch in unloading the package)
  • Alpha Layer for classic avatars
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

About the Pie…

So, to give you an update:  while Ripley snoozed the afternoon away today, I *was* successful in creating a pie.  I have to admit, though, it took two tries to get a crust that rolled out large enough for the pie plate.  It smelled so delicious as the oven worked its magic.  We will see tomorrow how it tastes.  I’m hoping my luck holds out for a flavorful pie as well as it did for all my lucky board prizes in SL!  Until my next post, Happy Thanksgiving to those who are celebrating, and happy shopping to all our Fabulous Readers!

If You Listen Carefully…

If You Listen Carefully, the Silence is Beautiful

… the silence is beautiful.  It’s been a long time since I was in a snowstorm, but I still remember the peace and tranquility after Mother Nature blanketed the world in white.  Sounds were muffled, and the landscape was so incredibly beautiful.  Nowadays, I need to get my snow fix on Second Life.  Tonight, the pupster and I traveled to Rayne and PetitChat for a dose of winter wonderland.  Isn’t the scene just lovely?

Feeling Lucky?

My sweet dress is a Lucky Board prize at Lunaria available to members of the Lunaria group.  Since the group is free to join, the only investment I had to make was a bit of time waiting for that magical “K” to appear on the board.  It took a couple of days of trying off and on, but this little number was well worth the wait!  With long sleeves, a charcoal colored bodice, a gray skirt, and cuffs, this frock kept me warm, but also offered stylish touches as well, such as the tree print on the bodice and pale embroidery on the cuffs and hemline.  I really like the more muted color scheme of this outfit.  With sizes for classic avatars as well as several mesh bodies, this free lucky board prize is sure to please.

Sizes and Mesh Compatibility:

  • Fit Mesh in XS, S, M, L, XL
  • Alpha Layer for Classic Avatars
  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink

Well,  that’s a wrap for today.  Tomorrow, Ripley and I are going to hit the kitchen and snooze by the warm oven (Ripley – not me) and attempt to whip up a home made (from scratch) pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving Dinner dessert (me –  not Ripley).  We’ll see how THAT turns out.  I haven’t had the best of luck in the past with pie crusts.  Anyone know of a good bakery that will be open late on Wednesday, just in case?  Until my next post, happy shopping!
