Settling Into Fall

Coming Soon
Hey FabFree! I am enjoying the fall season and decorating my home with lovely fall goodies. Before I jump into the decor I’ve found, I have an amazing free fall mug and drink to share. 

A Warm Pumpkin Spice Latte

Oh how I enjoy all things pumpkin flavored- especially lattes! You can grab this adorable pumpkin mug and drink at hive. It is a free group gift. 

Fall Decor!

Coming Soon

Now it’s time to share some amazing fall decor. I am loving the pumpkin season too! I got most of my decor from the Fall Festival at Malus Park which is a wonderful event to stock up on fall goodies. They have many giftboxes scattered around the event that cost 25L and under at the Fall Festival, which ends on October 16th. 

I also grabbed the banner from the Halloween Shop & Hop. The deals under 75L I am showing in decor today are:

  • The pot of pretty orange flowers is a 25L deal from Finca at the Fall Festival.
  • The beautiful fall leaves painting is 25L from Cwtch at the Fall Festival.
  • The two pumpkins that are breaking open with green ivy and brown leaves falling out of them cost 70L each, and you can find them at the Noveny booth at the Fall Festival.
  • Finally, the “Happy Halloween” banners are a free gift from Finca at the Halloween Shop & Hop

Enjoy, FabFree!

The Doorway into Autumn

autumn_006

Hey gang,

I’m here with Tara (aka Miss Tee, aka Chia pet, aka Chi, etc etc) to share with you some gorgeous Autumn decor for your home.  This week would have been Tara’s birthday if her real life self were still here and although I have been unable to find a shih tzu companion in world that looks like her (she was a black and white shih tzu, and I kept her hair cute and short, as she was a bit of a tomboy!), I try to get as close as I can and this little one from Rezz Room is very cute.  😉  (My Golden Animesh Sumner is also based on a real life furbaby of mine I had many moons ago).

But I digress, I am here to speak of the glories of autumn decor, it’s just that she is on my mind this week, September is a difficult month for me, I lost Sumner on the 29th of August, my dad on the 18th and my Mom on the 29th.(not the same year of course)  So with them all lumped together and my little Tee’s birthday in the mix, it’s in the forefront of my mind lately.

Let’s talk about Autumn!  Shanti always has some goodies for free for everyone and this time of year is no exception.  Not only is there a free box of autumn themed goodies (including the rug here and several other items!) but there is also the fireplace behind me for 55L, along with the cute sunflower tapestry, which I love for only 45L but brand new this year is the Ready for Autumn Golden who is only 1L!  I’ve taken a closer-up photo below to show you the little lights so cozy on the fireplace and on our autumn wreath wearing handsome pup as well!  It’s all got a soft lovely glow that will bring a cozy atmosphere to those chilly autumn nights coming up!
No group required for any of these goodies.

autumn_017

Don’t forget all clothing at Shanti is 75L and under, clothing for mesh bodies is on the right and for classic and BOM, on the left.  Though some of the mesh bodies contain classic clothing, just check the vendors for that.  😉

Also, my cute boots are a free group gift from Promagic, they have a load of group gifts and their group is free to join (ok its a whole ROOM of group gifts).

I’m still hoping summer will come back because this girl is not a fan of the cold.  The only *good* thing is that I get to whip out my collection of fingerless gloves that I love to wear.  😉  Of course with covid, I’ve been reduced to wearing them at home, but that’s ok, my hands are cold all winter.  😉 (as if I need an excuse to wear them!)

Apple Picking Season

FabFree Post:Apple Picking Season

Apple Cider

Move over Pumpkin Spice, it is Apple Cider season! (Though you can have both, just not recommended in the same cup) My favorite part of fall is tied between Thanksgiving dinner and Pumpkin Pie on Thanksgiving. It’s really a tough choice on who the clear winner is.

Speaking of pumpkins, Apple Fall has a new group gift out for you to enjoy! This lovely Golden Pumpkin is FREE for you with their free group! I know!! The pumpkin is modifiable so you can make it as BIG or as small as you wish! Perfection for this upcoming Holiday Festival I’m planning! Thank you Apple Fall!

Never Too Early

Never too Early

Alright, I know what you must be thinking… “Pru, it’s August.” However, while I understand the sentiment, we will just have to agree to disagree on whether or not it’s too early in the year for jack-o-lanterns. I like to refer to September through the start of November “Halloween Season.” I’m without a doubt, no shame at all that person who begins to decorate for fall Halloween starting the first week in September.  It’s been a long week and my favorite time of year is ever so near. So, I decided with a little help from Goddess Creations to get my fall vibes going a little early this year.

Goddess Creations 

This handsome carved pumpkin complete with brightly lit black candles is a free group gift at Goddess Creations. This guy is big, and will make a statement wherever you decide to make a home for him. With this gift you’ll also get an equally large held version of the pumpkin. Along with my new jack-o-lantern I picked up this too sweet pajama set for free with my Goddess Creations group tag. Who knew owls and cupcakes could be so cute together?! These pajamas come sized for Maitreya Lara only. Right now you can join the Goddess Creations group for free and get these two group gifts (and a few others) for free as well.

I’m Still Clinging to Halloween

I Wasn't Ready
Oh My Goodness, Fab Free’rs, I’m sooo not ready for October to be over! Not only do I love Halloween and want it to last longer, I’m just not prepared to start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas. Ahhh! Still, I’m sure I’ll get into the spirit of both up-coming holidays soon enough. For now, here’s one more witchy moment.

If you’ve been reading the Fab Free blog for long, you know I adore tattoos. This chest and sleeve tattoo is a free gift by Cheeky Ink. There is also a free tattoo for the guys at the Cheeky Ink shop. No group is needed for either tattoo. The tattoos come in 3 options, a 50% transparency, 75% transparency, and 100% full transparency. This tattoo is an Omega applier tattoo.

I could not resist this shimmering pumpkin from Sunora. It’s a cute little Jack o’Lantern with a simple hold animation. I also love the particle sparkles it emits. It looks spooky and magical! You can do away with the particle effect by clicking the jack o’lantern. This little pumpkin is just 50 linden on the Marketplace.

Here are the detials, enjoy!

I Can Explain

I Can Explain
Hello There Fab Free’rs! I hope you are all doing well. I’ll tell you, it’s true, I’m half in half out, a little up, a little down, and whether or not I’d be on Santa’s Nice list or the Naughty list is always up for discussion. Good or bad, naughty or nice, I can also always explain. So when I saw this joint gift from Villena and Pumpkin, I knew it was one I couldn’t pass up. To get this holiday outfit for FREE just head over to Villena and join the Villena group which is FREE to join at this time. There’s a gift vendor waiting for you right next to the group joiner just inside the shop. I included a copy of the vendor photo below.

Villena

This Santa inspired jacket is the Villena part of this FREE gift. The furry off-the-shoulder coat comes in 3 variations and several sizes. There’s the “classic Santa” jacket version Pru is wearing, a solid white version, and a cranberry sauce splattered white version. Along with the jacket there’s a holiday themed thong included in the gift.

Jacket Sizes Included: 2 Standard Mesh  / Thong Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya) , Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

Pumpkin

The top and leggings are the Pumpkin part of this fabulous FREE gift. Both gifts come together in the same package. The cropped mesh top has a customization hud that lets you hide or show the fishnet undershirt peeking out from the bottom. The leggings and the top can be worn together or separately and both come in several sizes.

Top and Legging Sizes Included: Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Maitreya Lara

Tis Kustom

Tis Kustom Hello Fab Free’rs, I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful week! I’m doing pretty well myself, especially after indulging in a little retail therapy at the current round of Kustom 9. This round of Kustom 9 is an anniversary round. Can you believe Kustom 9 has turned 3? In it’s relatively short time in Second Life, Kustom 9 has become one of the events I personally enjoy the most. I like the fact that it has remained a smaller event while still bringing in quality designers, at least in my opinion. In celebration of this anniversary, most if not all the participating vendors have put out a 9 linden gift. I picked up several, and the ones shown here are just a handful that I thought went well together.

This cute shoulder-length hairstyle is the K9 gift from MINA. I am always a sucker for heavy blunt bangs! I also like the swept back look of the style. I think it appears as though it could be tied back, but it floats over the shoulders and ends in a sort of feathery natural looking edge. The hair includes a color change hud of pretty “light brown” variations, and a version with and one without materials enabled.

Next, Essences also placed out a pretty variation on their Sophia skin as their K9 gift. This lovely face with the lilac lips is a Catwa head applier only. The gift applier is in the Essences medium01 tone with dark brows, and costs just 9 lindens like all the gifts at Kustom 9. I think the subtle makeup on this Catwa head applier by Essences is great for everyday wear. I also believe would look just as nice with casual clothing as it would with formal attire.

Fab Free’s own Kathryn commented on the photo for this post in Flickr that these eyes were “striking”. I completely agree with her, she always has such nice things to say! The eyes are part of the K9 gift from S0NG. S0NG’s 9 linden gift includes this hazy blue pair of eyes, and an equally strange and beautiful greenish pair. Named the “Bomi” eyes, each pair comes in a  mesh set, as well as a classic system layer.

Finally, this glittery iridescent choker with the little heart is from Pumpkin and I’m crushing on it big time! lol The mesh collar/choker has such a fun vibe, and it made me think of all the fun plastic jewelry I would have worn in my teens. Needless to say there was an instant feeling of slight nostalgia which is always a good thing in my book. The glittery heart choker has resize scripts built in for easy fitting, and is seriously cute on, especially for just 9 lindens.

Here are the details, I hope you like this small sample of the Anniversary gifts at Kustom 9.

Good evening Fabulouses!!  I came across a really fantastic and unisex fashion freebie to share with you tonight.

At the [Pumpkin] Mainstore, right at the landing point there is a large sign that says MC&HNY Gift and you can purchase it for a whopping 0L.  Inside the very generous holiday gift are several mesh fashion items for both men and women including the cozy sweatpants and stretched sweater you see me wearing today chilling out with my sheep friends 😉

ENJOY!
