It’s rare for me to envision something and then have the ability to manifest what I see in my mind with the tools at my disposal. Death Row Designs and Roawenwood gifted me the ability to really create the sort of diabolical yet romantic scene I had floating around in my imagination. So if this reads like a heartfelt thank you, it’s exactly that. I’ll always be inspired by and grateful for designers who give gifts that are beautifully detailed and thoughtfully made.

Death Row Designs 

I’ve always enjoyed the juxtaposition of the beautiful with the horrific. It’s easy to believe something ugly is sinister, but what of something or someone truly stunning? I find it thrilling in story telling to consider that under a lovely façade lies something malevolent. Death Row Designs often embodies this motif, gorgeous “ruined” things. They have three such things as their free October group gifts, and a fourth group gift that I didn’t show in my photo but is in the vendor ad below. There’s a broken and blood-drenched china tea set, a beautiful set of fall décor that includes a shelf with tchotchke and a silver mirror, and lastly a haunting wall lantern hanging from the fingers of a devilish outstretched arm. The Death Row Designs group is free to join.

FOUR New Group Gifts Now at DRD!!

Roawenwood

I’ve always felt that Roawenwood often has an inkling of darkness to their furnishings. Nothing too wicked, but just dark enough to be alluring. They have a lovely macabre chair and foot-stool set complete with a display ouija board, and drippy candle with darkly romantic red roses and human skull. The furniture itself has a deep purple-blue color, and a texture that makes me think of velour. There’s also a throw blanket over the stool that has gold-like flecks in it. The “Spirit Board Chair Set” is Roawenwood’s free hunt prize for the Fallen Gods Prophecy Hunt. Please click or copy the link below for the ins and outs of the hunt, including hints, and gift previews.

Butterfly Kisses

Butterfly Kisses

At times the unexpected happens. One might even say it’s magic in the making. Pru and I have had some magical moments over these years. We got to experience one such moment recently. All we did was take a walk into our own yard. Before we knew it we were surrounded by butterfly after butterfly. We don’t know where they came from, but there they were. It was breathtakingly magical and wondrous all at the same time. Them butterfly kisses are oh so sweet, fast, and a bit ticklish. Nearly made me chuckle and I know Pru giggled.
We enjoyed the perfect moment that seemed to last forever. Even though it was over before we knew it. Good thing I was dressed for it. The Men Only Hunt recently started and I jumped at it. I was able to get this great fitting tank at Kartel and these awesome looking shorts from Odiren. They didn’t cost me a single Linden. Nothing like freebies, especially when it comes to Men stuff. The Men Only Hunt will last Until the end of August. You have plenty of time to grab up all the great gifts. They are not all free the prices range from 0L – 10L. That is still a steal if you ask me. So, GUYS get out there and go hunting. Lastly, take a minute to check out the free L’Homme Magazine group gift facial hair at Mister Razzor. It’s worth the effort.

Magic


Woodland Witch

Woodland Witch

Sometimes there’s no other way to describe a place except to say that it feels homey. I feel that way about this magical little setting I put together with a few of the Fantasy Forest Hunt prizes. The Fantasy Forest Hunt is running through the end of May, so there’s still a bit of time to get hunting. For my witchy woodland setting I picked up the gifts from The Artist Shed, Collect, and Tentacle Experiment.  Each prize is just 5 lindens, and you’ll be hunting for a small grouping of mushrooms.

The Artist Shed

This detailed armchair with its decadent floral fabric is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at The Artist Shed. The chair is 6 land impact prims, and has a single unisex sit pose. It’s also copy, so you’ll be able to rez multiple chairs if you wish. This FFH gift is just 5 lindens.

Hunt HintIf a branch falls in the forest, I mean store…does anyone remember?

Collect 

The carved pillar and tree with hanging lanterns giving light to this setting is the 5 linden Fantasy Forest Hunt gift at Collect. It too has really nice details with only 8 land impact prims. After all, what witchy retreat would be complete with out a light to conjure by.

Hunt HintFantasies and Daydreams are fuel for many a book. 

Tentacle Experiment 

Tying everything together is the Fantasy Forest Hunt prize at Tentacle Experiment. Also just 5 linden and 5 land impact prims, this FFH prize is full of witchy whimsy. It includes the trio of rocks, broom, books, and animated grass. The grass seems to be subtly waving in the wind, or perhaps it is the magic emanating from the books and broom that causes the grass to dance.

Hunt HintEating mushrooms can give trippy effects.

Dench Designs

Toilet paper is a hot topic right now, for a number of reasons that no one wants to discuss here. However, to help lighten the mood and give us all a little something to do Dench Designs put together a free Toilet Roll Hunt. There are 10 toilet paper rolls hidden throughout the store. Each roll is free and contains a furniture or décor gift. Once you’ve teleported to Dench Designs, click the TP Hunt sign for a notecard with hints to the location of all 10 TP rolls. Have fun, and happy hunting!

Tis The Season

Tis the Season

With all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, it feels good to stop and take a moment to enjoy time spent together. Blue and I took a minute to do a little hunting at Roped Passions. Their Candy Cane Hunt (Jack Frost Path) prize is a his & hers matching set. The prize for the ladies is the red belted coat with matching hot-pants, while the prize for the gentlemen is a matching shirt and formal vest. The single hunt prize is just 3 lindens, and it includes both gifts.

Female Gift Sizes Included: Standard Mesh & Alpha Layer, Belleza (Venus, Freya), Maitreya Lara, Slink (Hourglass, Physique), Tonic (Curvy,Fine)
Male Gift Sizes Included: Fitmesh Classic & Alpha Layer, Belleza Jake, Signature, Slink

Hint: Jack Frost Path – “In a Galax Far Far Away…”

For my look I paired the female Candy Cane Hunt prize from Roped Passions with the Candy Cane Hunt prize from Cog & Fleur. The necklace and earrings set are perfect for adding a regal touch to any holiday outfit. The beautiful red and gold jewelry has resize scripts, and there is an informative notecard in the box. Like all the Candy Cane Hunt prizes, this one at Cog & Fleur is just 3 linden.

Hint: Ice Queen Path – “Behind the reception desk there is a chair. Look Underneath!”

Happy Hunting Fab Free!

Spring Swing & Coffee Things


Here Comes The Sun

Hello hello Fab Free! So the Spring Cart Sale at The Wash is in full bloom. Did you see what I did there? Punny right! I’m full of good humor today. No really, it’s been a great day, and I hope your day has been just as awesome. I’m about to make things a little more awesome by sharing with you a few fabulous finds at the afore mentioned Cart Sale. For this post I picked up an inexpensive item at the Kitty Creations Cart, and a couple of equally budget friendly items at Totally Random’s Cart.

Swings and Flowers and Things – I love when a product includes all the things. This Cart Sale find by Kitty Creations is just that, it includes the garden swing, the tree with twinkle lights, the garden shrubs, and the pretty spring flowers. Also, the garden swing is set up with solo his and hers poses, couples poses, and even a few sweet slow dances. You can get this garden set by Kitty Creations at their Spring Cart Sale Cart for just 25 linden.

Ode to Coffee
But First Coffee – I’m one of those that can and often does drink coffee at any time of day. It’s not just a morning beverage in my world. I like the way it tastes, the way it smells, and even the sounds my coffee pot makes as it percolates. That said, when I saw these coffee themed clothing items at the Totally Random Cart, they had to be mine. The top is very cute, it ties under the arms which is a little detail that really makes the shirt. It comes in several sizes and is just 25 linden. Also at the Totally Random Cart are these cute matching chucks. They are unrigged mesh so you can resize them, which means just about anyone could wear these. The shoes are also 25 linden.

Shirt Sizes Included: Maitreya Lara, Belleza (Isis, Freya, Venus), Tonic (Curvy, Fine), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Standard Mesh (xxs – L)

Late Afternoon


Late Afternoon

Hello Fab Free’rs! Sometimes you just need to sit and have a quiet moment. Yesterday was that kind of day for me, nothing sad or unfortunate, just some quiet time to reflect. It was good, and needed. I also had a little bit of time to pick up some recent group gifts that I’m happy I get to share with you. Keep reading and as always, I’ll give you all the information about each of these fabulous finds.

The Outfit – Pru’s cute froggy top and plaid pants are the latest free gift for Fabulously Free in SL group members by C!L. You can’t see it as well in my photo, but the shirt is cropped and knotted in the front. I love this for a cute casual Valentine look. The outfit comes in several sizes and is suitable for classic avatars. If you’re not already a Fab Free group member, you should be! The Fab Free group is always free to join.

Sizes Included: Standard Mesh (xs -XL), Slink (Physique, Hourglass), Belleza (Isis, Venus, Freya), TMP

The Bracelet Hot Elegant Clothing or “HEC” put out a cute bracelet set out as a new group gift. It comes in a few sizes to best fit specific mesh bodies. Also, there is a hud that will let you completely customize the color of individual sections of the bracelets. I’ve included the vendor photo below so you can get a closer look. The HEC group has a one time join fee of 25 linden.
