Winter Wonderland
Hiya, got a hot one for you, Let’s dive into some hunting and decor!

Say Hello To My New Friends

Like all us Fabfree folks, I like free. And for umpteen years now, the best free spot in SL is, of course, Free Dove. You just can’t beat this deal, for a free group space, you get introduced to new creators without the bite to the wallet. Not that I can remember just how I got to know Free Dove, I would imagine it was via our own Fabfree Blog. And since that time I have been referring all the noobies, I see there. LOL. A bonus perk of this fab group is the monthly hunts. For just a tad bit of your time, you can pick up 10 items from the hunt for free. And they sure pack the hunt with goodies! This month there are 3 creators to hunt for, that’s 30 free items. Woohoo to that. Jacx is modeling the free Tastic Ella Sweater, so cute with its winter pattern in sweet pink & off-white color. You can wear it as a dress or like Jacx a big sloppy sweater with leggings, just right for cleaning up after Christmas day. Drop over to Free Dove, look around, join the free group, hunt you up some awesome clothes. The hunt runs till Dec. 31st, so you still have a bit of time to work on making room in your inventory for more goodies. 🙂

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.

Tea Time

Tea Time
Hiya. This will be one of those long ones 🙂 So get comfy, grab your drink. As we enter October with all the bursting fall colors, and of course Halloween.

Afternoon Tea

Nothing hits the spot better than a cup of hot tea on a brisk fall day. Jacx is serving you tea and cookies, modeling Shydoll Hanna Dress 2 GG, featuring a bold zig-zag print, corset-style top, and best of all the semi-sheer balloon sleeves. Fun fact, in the 1830s balloon sleeves, were called “Leg of Mutton” sleeves. The free Hanna dress comes with 2 other colorings,  the Shydoll group join fee 199L. A couple of other group gifts are available, like the Annie top shown here.

 Breathe In The Crisp Fall

All seasons have different scents, my personal fav is fall, the windows are open letting in the breeze. Baking going on in the kitchen, apple crisp, and pumpkin pies and bread, filling the air. LOL, makes me hungry for those goodies just thinking about it. However the Breathe in this context is really about shoes, The Breathe group is still currently free to join. The Choko Heels free GG, is a basic t-strap style that is a great “go-to” pair of shoes, with an 18 color hud, (sized for Belleza, Maitreya, Slink.)

Fall Colors

Here comes the long part. As you know decorating is one of my things. With fall being, a favorite time of year, I might tend to go overboard just a tad. 🙂 For the gifts, Apple Fall Pumpkins in Urn is shown by Aline here. Other free Apple Fall items include Harvest Pumpkin, Buttercup Gold, (this item is with the collection pumpkins, sitting on a box.) No group is needed with either item. Also at  Apple Fall, is the Pumpkin Harvest Wreath. To pick up this item you need to join Gallant Magazine Group, which is free to join. La Galleria sets out free items for most holidays and seasons. La Galleria Autumn Greetings Sign & Fall Banners #1 & #5 was shown here by Cre. The last of the gifts is Raindale’s Wonderbell Floor Cushion, part of the September GG. The group is 250L to join with lots of gifts available.  Though not in the under 75L, Nutmeg has an added a new section, called Low Priced Items. So if you are looking for a more budget-friendly Nutmeg item, check here. No doubt you will be seeing more of my bright orange couch in future posts. LOL.

That’s a wrap for today. Till next time

The Fae’s Retreat

The Fae's Retreat
This little woodland fairy is pondering whether or not to invite her friends over for tea.  Does she have enough seed cakes, honey and scones to go around?  There are always plenty of berries in the forest, and a never ending supply of chamomile so the tea doesn’t ever run out.  A merry gathering it shall be… but… no humans allowed!

The Deep Woods

I am having such a good time putting together outfits and imaginary worlds on the FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt.  Every time I unpack something, I get all excited at how pretty and imaginative the gifts are.  I made three stops today, and I had so much fun putting this photo together that I may just become a woodland inhabitant forever!  My first stop was Grasshopper St.  This shop is just so lovely in the way that it evokes the class and lush feel of an olde world millinery shop.  I picked up this gorgeous cloche for just 3L, and the parasol was 3L as well. Both are resizable so will fit like a dream.  Aren’t they amazing?  Love it!

Fit for the Fae

Raindale has long been one of my fave stops for distinctive furniture.  When they joined the hunt, I couldn’t think of a better place to evoke the enchanted forest feel we were going for.  The furniture that peppers my little hidden forest abode is all 1L each, and really is completely beautiful.  You’ll want to add every item to your collection, just like I did!

Secrets of the Unicorn

Ishiku has also come up with an amazing concept for our hunt – the cracked monolith is HUGE and just such an interesting set to add to your hidden garden.  Each item is just 5L each and is completely and utterly gorgeous in every detail.  You’ll get the massive stone monolith, the etched stone, the magical unicorn horn vial and the golden stand for it.  It’s utterly brilliant!  I’m gushing a bit, but honestly…it’s fantastic.

The FabFree Enchanted Forest Hunt is running until July 22nd!  Show our awesome designers some love!  Here’s one more photo for good measure… (can you tell I had fun with this shoot?)
