There’s No Place Like Home

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!

This Little Blogger Went to Market

In my recent trip to the marketplace this time, I found this absolutely adorbs dress by NinaLaure.  I love throw back stuff like this and I fell totally in love with it.  It fits maitreya and cost me only 69L!

Also on market I found this cool backdrop (its really four backdrops in one!) called Photobooth Avantgarde by Floyd.  It cost me 25L which breaks down to 6.25L per backdrop!

This Little Blogger Played Gacha!

My cute hair is from a 75L gacha at Dalgona, it wasnt my first choice but I do love pink, so I will accept it.

Sunflowers and Daydreams

Coming soon to fab free

It’s getting closer every day to summer, but it doesn’t much feel like it where I live.  Not only are we coming out of the pandemic still, but its cold, overcast and rainy.  Ew. Not very appealing for a time of the year that usually sees folks spending time outdoors, grilling and having a nice bit of fresh air.  It is also a time for those outdoor get togethers. As an introvert, I don’t mind it at all.  I would rather this than have to go sit at someone’s barbecue that I really don’t want to be at.  That sounds worse than it is, I think.  Remember, an introvert wants to be invited, with the option to not have to go.  Social events are draining for us, though we love seeing friends and family, an entire day we are forced to endure gets to be a bit much, especially if there is nowhere for us to escape to for some quiet recharge time.

So today you find me lounging amongst the sunflowers to show off my finds for you!

High Tides & Good Vibes!

I do love the beach. The sound of the ocean, the smell of the salt water, the wind in my hair and some squishy sand between my toes. I prefer a quiet natural beach to the insanely packed ones. I love the beaches up in Rhode Island. So beautiful with lots of those smooth pretty rocks I love to collect (I admit I have far too many). I also love to collect pretty hunt items and I have one for you today. I found these cute jeans in the High Tides & Good Vibes Hunt at Pink Funk.  This is a 1L hunt, but each designer has a choice to also offer a 25L item, this item is a 25L item, but they also have a cute dress out for 1L.  This hunt runs from June 5 to June 30.

They fit:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Maitreya
  • Physique
  • Venus

Well That’s Just Tops!

The cute top I paired it with is a freebie from the Beauty Event, which has about a bazillion (ok it just *feels* like a bazillion!) free gifts (no group required!) this round to celebrate its anniversary.  I’m still going through them all!  This freebie is from MOW.  It has a HUD that has 10 fabrics for you to choose from.  It fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

The Beauty Event runs until the 11th of June.

But Wait!  There’s More!

My shoes and necklace are both dollarbie market finds to finish up this super cute outfit.  My shoes are by Lacy’s Apparel and they cost me 5L.  They come in 8 colors and fit Maitreya.  My necklace is from Romazin and that cost me 1L!  Such cute well made stuff!

Springtime Swoon

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

Now, I don’t know about y’all, but I absolutely *love* all the pastel colors that show up in the Spring!  They just make me swoon!  It’s the Springtime Swoon!  That’s like being twitterpated but you do it over the colors, the clothes, the hair, the makeup, the flowers, the decor, the freaking everything!!!!  I mean, I got an amazon gift card yesterday and I went all crazy about some pastel colored pens for my Bujo!  Just so refreshing and bright and cheery!  Can you tell I am not much of a winter time gal?  😉

But!  I do digress!  (Picture it, Sicily, 1920….)  I have some amazing goodies for you today!  This adorable outfit I am wearing comes to you from our Fab Free Designer Phoebe ~Piercings & more~.  It is a MIIX Weekend Sale item, the top and bottom are 55L each and they come with a HUD that has pinstripes (so sassy and classy!) in every color your heart desires 20 choices!)!  That’s this weekend, as in *right now* so run and do grab!  They fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Ocacin
  • Physique
  • Standar (Classic Avatar M size)
  • Tonic Curvy & Fine
  • Venus
  • Voluptuous

The shoes I found on marketplace for a mere 50L and they are gorgeous!  They are from ROC, and they come with a HUD that has 25 color choices so these match *everything*!  They fit:

  • Belleza
  • Maitreya
  • Slink
  • TMP

Now for those of you who are Mom’s, any kind of Mom (humans or furbabies!!) I wish you a wonderful Mother’s Day!  Those of you who are missing your Mom’s (like me) for whatever reason, I send you big hugs!!!

❤ Arielle

SWAY`S CREATIONS OPENING

Perhaps you know my own blog … and if so, perhaps you read my little story “WE ARE FAMILY”.  If not … it doesn´t matter :-)) But it was my best friend, Sandmaennchen Polanski, who lets me know about Sway`s Creations Opening, and I want to thank him 🙂 Hmm … btw, if you like plants, trees and flowers you might have a look to Sand`s Plants. Sand(maennchen) Polanski is still preparing his store, and its not officially opened but he offers great plants with just 1 prim (and right now I´ve heard there are a few nice freebies, too :-)) As soon as this man (he isn´t a teddy all time long, he has a very attractive male avi, too *nods and smiles*) will ever be satisfied with his amazing designs I will shout out “Hallelujah, he´s done!”, and immediately will write a special post about him and his plants :-))) However … *coughs* …. this post is about
