My Autumn Gallery

My Autumn Gallery

Welcome To The Fall Showing

Fall is my favourite decorating season. I put up a little autumn gallery made up of art I picked up at the Fall Festival, a fall-themed event that is running until October 1st at Malus Park. I have a couple of 50L pieces and a free painting to show you from this event, so check out the following designer’s booths to get these fall art pieces for a fabulous price!

  • The painting with the woman and the fall leaves is a free gift from Katharine Littlepaws Art Gallery.
  • The “Pumpkin Season” framed artwork is 50L from Cotton Blossom Artwork.
  • The “Fall is my Favorite Color” framed poster is also 50L, and you will also find this art work in Cotton Blossom Artwork’s booth.

On Me

  • My outfit is a free lucky board prize at Shanti. No group join is required to play the boards. This prize is called the “Upside Down Bohemian Outfit”. This is a Stranger Things reference for all the fans of the popular supernatural 80’s-era Netflix series. The set includes a top and skirt which can be worn separately. The outfit is textured with a black and white pattern which looks perfect for Halloween coming up! It fits Freya, Isis, Venus, Ebody Classic, Lara, Physique, Legacy, and Tonic Curvy & Fine.
  • The choker and earrings I am wearing are from The Arcade, and they are 50L per play from Heartsdale Jewellery. You can see a key below of all the pretty prizes available. There are 12 pieces of jewelry from this designer to collect at the September round of The Arcade, which is available to play until September 30th. If you need more information about how The Arcade works, please read Aline’s recent post here which explains it much better than I can!

Enjoy the show, FabFree!

Create a Scene

Cabinet of Curiosities

Juli recently blogged about all the gifts [QE Designs] has for us all for free at SL19B. Make sure you read her post here to see all the cute apparel items they have out at the event. Today I’m showing you the free home and decor [QE Designs] also has available for free in their massive box of gifts at SL19B. They have a nice gift for everyone there, no matter what your home and decor tastes are.

[QE Home]

Did you know that [QE Designs] has a brand under their company called [QE Home] just for home and decor products? It’s true and it’s pretty awesome. So just head over to [QE Designs] & [QE Home] @ SL19B to grab a whole truckload of free home and decor gifts. I am showing all the home and decor gifts from their gift package today.

A Cabinet of Curiosities

The first scene I created with these great freebies is a Cabinet of Curiosities, which can be seen at the top of my post. For those who haven’t heard of them before, a “Cabinet of Curiosities” or “Curio Cabinet” was a collection of strange and bizarre objects, artifacts, and furnishings that wealthy people used to collect in Europe in the 19th century. Pretty cool! This is not a true curio cabinet, but in the spirit of SL19B’s steampunk theme, I wanted to at least reference my favourite historical time period and throw in some steampunk decor and skulls into the mix. If you didn’t know already, I am obsessed with that time period and the steampunk subculture is connected to that. The free exclusive steampunk gifts [QE Home] has out at their SL19B booth are:

  • A free steampunk painting with a thick wooden frame. You can change the frame and the canvas to six different options using the artwork’s menu when you click it.
  • The steampunk rug set is also free, and you can change the textures of the rugs to several different options using the rug’s menu when you click it.

Coastal Decor

The other scene I created from these great home and decor gifts is this little coastal decor arrangement.

Coastal Decor

  • There is a free banana plant in the gift pack. You can change the colours of the pot and the plant leaves using the objects’ menu when you click it.
  • The lanterns are both free and come in a set. You can change the colour of each lantern to aqua or coral by using the objects’ menu when you click it.
  • The two little seashell paintings that hand by strings are also free.

Have fun decorating, FabFree!

Frilly & Pretty in Pink

Pretty in Pink

Hey FabFree! Sometimes a girl just wants to feel frilly and pretty in pink, even if it’s not my typical style. I set up a cute bedroom scene to match my mood and the cute new finds I have to show you today.

Cute Finds for 25L Tuesday

25L Tuesday is on today! Paper.Sparrow set their sale items out early, and they usually keep it out for the week. Double win! I love this because I am horrible at following daily sales. I just forget about them and miss them most times, but not at Paper.Sparrow. They have this adorable night shirt and bag for only 25L each! The 25L version of the shirt comes in black and white, and the bag comes in white, grey, and black. See below for a closeup of these cute sale items! Go soon to get them, as this is a limited-time sale.

Sizes Included (night shirt):

  • Kupra
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya Lara
  • Physique
  • Hourglass

Coming Soon

I also have a few pretty goodies from SL19B that you can see in my close-up. These are all totally free gifts.

  • The lovely lipstick is an applier gift from Ives Beauty @ SL19B. It includes 8 lip tones for Lelutka Evo, Lelutka EvoX, and Genus heads.
  • My pretty earrings are the free gift from Poeme @ SL19B. These come in several lovely colours.
  • My face skin is the gift from Purple @ SL19B, and it comes in a full fatpack of tones. This is made for Lelutka EvoX, and it includes ear skins and neck fixes.

Pretty Poo

Now head back over to Paper.Sparrow, where you will find the funny “Pretty Poo” decor air freshener bottles that cost 75L per colour. You can see how I used these to decorate my room in my scene below. These are the “Vanilla” and “Strawberry” versions. These will help you smell so nice in SL!

Coming Soon

Have a wonderful day, FabFree!

Garden Dreams

Garden Dreams

It’s Officially Open!

Aline recently posted all the details about the Second Life birthday celebrations here, so make sure to check out her post. SL19B is officially open now, so all can teleport in (if you can make it)! As you may know, every booth has a free gift and there are 20 sims and 400 stores this round. Personally, I went about it by starting at the Zinnia region in the northwest corner and move clockwise to complete the event rejion-by-region. Here’s a map of the 20 regions that Dreamer’s Virtual World posted on their blog if you need a reference point! Use the “World Map” to track your progress and this map will come up on your screen; you will see what direction your avatar is moving in with the map open. This one will take you a while!

Care for a Pergola?

This pretty pergola (the large wooden structure) is a free gift from Noveny @ SL19B. This is a really pretty gift, and I set up a garden scene to showcase it. I’m also showing some discounted decor available from [QE Home] @ SL19B, so check out my credits to see these 50% off home and decor promotions. You will find many sales at the 19th birthday celebrations from 20%-75% off at each store. It’s time to get some discounted shopping in as well as free gift collection! Some of the sales are as good as Black Friday!

Purple Daisies

Lunaria has a tonne of Midnight Madness Board prizes at their store for all to play for free, and no group join is required to get them. The pretty purple daisies with ground cover in my scene are from the boards. For these boards, you just tap all of them, and you get entered into the contest until they fill up. They don’t time out at midnight, so you are guaranteed to win all the MM prizes!

Enjoy, FabFree!

Collecting Pumpkins

Collecting PumpkinsHiya, TGIF.  This is kinda a two-part post. Just wait to see what happens to these pumpkins 🙂

Ready For Some Pumpkin Pie?

Weekends are a time for family and friends, to share food & news. With entertaining in mind for the weekend, Jacx has wandered about collecting pumpkins, some to decorate with, some to bake into favorite fall goodies. Leaning on a nearby fence trying to figure out how to get all these pumpkins home, modeling 2 ggs and a free pair of slacks. Let’s dig right in, (if you are good at the digging part, could I hire you to help scoop seeds out of pumpkins?) Starting at the top, with the top, 🙂 Slackr newest gg October 2021 is a sweet tri-colored halter top, white, orange, and yellow looks like candy corn. Good enough to eat. (sized for Legacy, Maitreya, Maitreya Petite) Slackr group join fee is 50L. Paired with Paper Sparrow Imogen Yoga Pants Summer Fig, the free pants are in a color that is an almost perfect match to the orange color in the top. These pants are available at Free Dove, The Free Dove group is free to join.

The Comforts of Winter

ff112820_005

There is so much going on inworld this weekend, that it’s making my head spin.  I think I need a quiet moment to myself, with the comforts of home and a hot cup of tea before I possibly lose my head (hey…it could happen…it IS removeable!)

Happy Birthday!

[QE] are celebrating both a birthday AND Black Friday in a really awesome way – not only is the whole store on sale this weekend, but there are also free gifts for everyone!  No need to join a group, just click on the little brown bag in front of the main desk.  What’s inside, you ask?  Well, you’ll find really pretty carpets, piles of pillows, and a basket full of warm blankets to keep you cozy through the winter (there’s also some artwork that I didn’t add to my little scene, but it’s really lovely too!).  You’ll also find that by clicking on the pillows you can change their texture to a myriad of pretty options.  Love it!  I’m sure this gift won’t be around for too long, so head over to [QE] as quick as your little legs will take you.  Also, why not join the Gift Card Raffle for a chance to win a 10,000$L [QE] Gift Card while you’re there!

Keep it cozy!

Autumnal Night In

Autumnal Night In

Friday night calls for a bit of chilling at home!  I’m lighting the fire, then burrowing  under some blankets, I think.  Or maybe I’ll get dressed up kinda fancy and have a Zoom Party.  Who knows.  All’s I know is that I am NOT crossing the threshold of my front door tonight!

Autumn in the Air

QE is holding a fun Autumnal Hunt at their mainstore right now!  It’s packed with cute outfits, shoes and even some home decor items.  Each item costs only 25L and a bit of sneaky hunting.  You’ll need to look all over the place in the shop to find these cleverly hidden goodies! You’re looking for a small pumpkin.  I’ve got the Arabella dress on (which has a short sleeve and long sleeve version, as well as several different texture options in the HUD), and the Stacy Booties which come sized for Belleza, Maitreya, eBody Curvy, Legacy and Slink.  I also picked up the lovely carpets and the basket of pillows you see.  Everything you need for the perfect night in!  The QE Autumnal Hunt runs until November 18th, so get yourself over there!

Cozy Corner

Cozy Corner

It has been getting warmer in my part of the world, and for once I am ready, if not eagerly anticipating the summer. The promise of warm sunny days put me in the mood to add some brightness and summer color to my space here in Second Life. My new cozy little reading corner, also known as Oscar’s favorite place to hoard his tennis ball collection, is thanks to Happy Weekend items from Muniick, and free Stay at Home Club gifts from ChiC Buildings, [QE Home], Kisetsu, and Eclectica Curiosities.

Muniick 

This weekend only Muniick has this sideboard table and hanging picture set out for just 60 linden as part of the Happy Weekend sales. The sideboard has 3 color options, and the photo frames have 2 color choices. Each piece is just 3 land impact and can be set out together or separately. Plus, the pretty floral prints feel like summer.

ChiC

The love a good built-in. This bookshelf from Chic Buildings with the sliding ladder has that built-in look and comes in 2 colors. There’s also an empty version without the books so you can add your own items to the shelves, and the ladder is optional. To get your copy, head over to ChiC Buildings and pick up this free Stay at Home Club gift. Hurry, the Stay at Home Club gift at ChiC changes often!

Kisetsu

The cute pastel Japanese tea set is a free Stay at Home Club gift at Kisetsu. This gift will dispense tea, and includes a display tea cup along with the tea set. I think it looks perfect on the sideboard from Muniick, and now I can have a nice warm green tea any time I want.

Eclectica Curiosities 

I really like the soft buttery yellow of this armchair by Eclectica Curiosities. It seems warm and inviting. The chair along with the side table and lamp are also free Stay at Home gifts. The lamp can be turned off and on via touch, and the chair has several solo sit animations.

[QE Home]

The rug, and the pile of throw pillows I stashed in the sideboard table are together the free Stay at Home Club gift from [QE Home]. The rug and pillows each have a few color/pattern choices with a bright bohemian kind of feel to them. The pillows can also be sized via their touch menu. I think they add a pretty pop of color.
