A Dress, Baubles, and Claws – Oh, My!

There are certain requirements when you begin to write a fairy tale. Or so they say. For instance – you must have a damsel in distress, a prince to rescue her, and everyone must live happily ever after.

But… I threw all that out the window and decided that a nifty necklace, a great set of claws for my SLink hands, a sexy purple gown with a terrific tiara and some great landscaping was good enough to make me queen of the forest this Sunday!

A Dress, Baubles, and Claws - Oh My! [1]

I was wandering the grid this week and happened to accidentally focus my camera into a store I had never seen before and ran across Baubles! by Phe which immediately had me skeedadling inside to scoop up this gorgeous gold and crystal turtle necklace as their current FREE group gift (the group is also FREE to join). I’ve heard that turtles are a symbol for patience and goodness knows I’ve needed it this week! But mainly because I couldn’t wait to show you the goodies I found for you!

If you hop over to Sweet Poison and head to the back room, there is a wall with lower price goodies (across from the wall where the 25L Tuesday and 30L Saturday items are usually showcased). Among these promo items I found this amazing set of Mesperyian’s Claws for only 25L for my SLink hands [gesture style hands required unless you are good at modding!] and they include a color change hud with five great colors! Woot!

Now… where was I to set my tale? Ah yes! All good fairy tales must have a setting, this one included. Don’t worry, wary traveler! It includes a place to rest your head!

I was thrilled to see the gifties at two of my favorite stores as I did my run around the grid this week, and like any forest Queen who might be in need of a proper place to sleep, Belle Epoque had me in mind with their latest FREE group gift (the group is FREE to join). I am showing you the bed in pink but the gift is a four pack of colors – single beds in Beige, blue, or grey are also included – and each of these lovely pieces are only 4 prim!

Better yet the “box” itself makes a terrific decorative item as well! Look close in the picture above. See my lovely pink potted flowers? Only one prim! And FREE! You guessed it! That’s the “box” that held my beds! I sized one up and it did increase the prims a bit, but the larger one in the picture above is still only 2 prims at the larger size! What a deal!

Still not convinced? Jump on over to The Roawenwood where by wearing your group tag (the group is FREE to join) for just 1L each you can purchase their Springtime Mesh Saplings Tree Set and/or their Summertime Mesh Saplings Tree Set! The Spring saplings are a lovely shade of pink and the summer set is a perfect summer green and each pack contains three different styles of tree(s) all highly detailed and for 7 prims or less!

So I had my jewelry, my trees and my flowers, my bed for relaxing, and all I really needed was a killer dress. A visit to Luas solved that. Their latest FREE group gift (the group is as always FREE to join) – this Shae Dress in purple – even came with lovely draping, sandals, additional jewelry, and a gorgeous tiara.

I think I’ll pass on the prince. I heard somewhere that in fairy tales they make you kiss frogs to find those…
