Goldfish

Goldfish Pond
Goldfish are one of the many little creatures that I have an unexplainable affinity for. I even have a goldfish tattoo in my real life. I think it goes without saying that I “needed” this goldfish pond in my Second Life.  The above photo is a very close up picture of the free Medieval Fantasy Hunt prize by Simply Shelby. This Japanese inspired pond comes with 2 types of optional animated goldfish to swim merrily through the water. The goldfish also have animated tails so that they don’t just glide motionlessly, they actually appear to swim. This pretty landscape item by Simply Shelby is again a free gift on the Medieval Fantasy Hunt. The hunt object is a little bonsai tree. Happy Hunting!

Hint – Cool your toes with the pixie.

The Scent Takes Me Back


The Scent Can Take Me Back

A big part of nostalgia for me occurs with certain smells. The scent of a specific incense, or a certain soap, even flowers can trigger memories. I love that. Generally the memories are always pleasant ones. My nostalgic smells aside, I do have some fabulous group gifts to share with you, so let’s get to it.

The Dress

This cute blue jean dress does have a bit of nostalgia for me in that it reminds me of that time in the early ’90s when Guess jeans were all the rage, and denim everything was in style. It’s one of many free group gifts at Julia’s Scandal. I paired the dress with a low cut applier tank top for a bit of added modesty. This dress showed a bit more of my girls than I wanted. My shape however could have been the culprit. Either way, I think it’s a cute look. The Julia’s Scandal group is free to join at this time.

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

The Earrings

I know you can not see beaded the earrings I have on super well in this photo. My apologies for that, they seem to blend in with the background. I’ll include the vendor photo below so you can see these fun over-sized earrings by Indulge Temptation. They are the current Teleport Hub group gift at IT!. The earrings come in a blue and red version, and a pink and blue version, each with three metal choices. The Teleport Hub group has a one time join fee of 10 linden.

The Pose & Flower 

This pretty bento pose by Hazeel was previously a Pose Fair gift, and now can be picked up at the Hazeel pose shop, with your Hazeel group tag. The gift includes the bento pose in and out of a poseball, and the rose in pink, red, or yellow. Each rose also has a transfer version so you can pass it to others. The Hazeel group has a one time join fee of 99 linden, and there are multiple group gifts available.

Hi Fab Free! I’m back with some beautiful landscape/scenery finds from Simply Shelby. The setting in the above photograph is almost entirely made up of either one of the 30 Linden Saturday items at Simply Shelby or the equally awesome and completely free April group gift also at Simply Shelby. The only reason I say “almost” is because that small patch of green grass is not included. Keep reading for all the details about each fabulous offer at Simply Shelby.

30L SaturdaySimply Shelby has several offers for today’s 30L Saturday items. Generally speaking, I believe Simply Shelby does leave these items up until the following Saturday, however I wouldn’t guarantee that, so do not miss these just in case! I picked up her Druid’s Cave both because I love it, and of course because I really wanted to share it with you! This set includes the cave, with the added vines, candles, the little crystals and mushrooms, along with the Druid Priest, the alter, and an additional vine. The Druid Priest, the alter, and the vine are all copy, so you can rez out as many as you like, or leave them out all together. The cave is copy as well. No group is needed for this awesome set, just teleport to Simply Shelby and run over to the “Sales” building where you can purchase this set for just 30 linden along with several other fantastic items.


Simply Shelby Mystical Druid Cave

April Group Gift – The free April group gift at Simply Shelby is this lovely maple tree with surrounding floral landscape, rocks, and the adorable bunny all together. This item is no transfer, however it is copy and modify so you can adjust it to your liking if you so desire. Just be sure to make a copy first! To get your copy of this free group gift, you’ll need the Simply Shelby group tag. The group is currently free to join. Also, there are quite a few other group gifts also available. The Simply Shelby group gifts are located in the VIP/Hunts & Events building alongside the Lucky Chairs and Midnight Madness boards.

The Wildflower Ruins

Wild Flower Ruins
Hello Fabulous Fab Free’rs! I have something a little different for you today. The gorgeous setting above is one of several 30 Linden Saturday sale items at Simply Shelby. Before I go on about all the cool features of this piece, I want to point out that this is last Saturday’s sale item. That means that it is only available for 30 lindens through the end of Friday. After Friday, there will be new sale items. This cool scene comes in a rez box for easy setup. Everything pictured is included. the rocks, the flowers, even the adorable deer.  Also, this scene by Simply Shelby has a few extra  items in the package. The optional add-ons include animated fish, swimming ducks, and a sunbeam for extra detail. Aptly named the Wildflower Ruins, this set also has several built in individual and couple’s poses. I don’t mind telling you I did test the poses, and they are all l quite nice. To get your copy of this fantastic set just head over to Simply Shelby and go to the building that says “Sales” and you’ll find all the current 30 Linden Saturday sale items. There are several items, so I have added an additional photo below. Happy Shopping Fab Free!

Don’t forget! These are last week’s 30 Linden Saturday sale items at Simply Shelby. They will change this Saturday!

Vintage Living

Vintage Living

Vintage Carson…

The ladies on the blog like to call me vintage, so I’ll bow to their wishes and live a “vintage” life. And an easy way to furnish your Victorian home is follow the hunt path on the Steam XII Hunt. I was able to decorate my living space for FREE by just finding the hunt items. I was also lucky enough to find an outfit (or two) along the way. Find your way to Cutie Larks and the Endymion Outfit can be yours for FREE. Don’t worry ladies, there’s a female gift there for you also! I borrowed the shoes from the Columbiad Engineer Outfit from Sparrow by Design that I showed [HERE] to complete the look.

To the Moon…

But today’s post isn’t about the clothing. I want to show you some of the wonderful and unique items for your house (if you live in the 1890’s) that can be found for FREE on the Steam XII Hunt. The hunt prize at Simply Shelby is the Reclaimed Ash Bookcase – Jules Verne Edition. It’s a beautifully crafted shelving unit with all kinds of Verneian memorabilia mixed in. The Steamer Trunk Coffee Table can be found at Casa de Bebe. The trunk include sit poses and makes a great addition it your next expedition to the unknown. Head down to Wood Works to find the Hurricane Lamp and Table. The Red Velvet Victorian Chaise is the hunt prize from Park Place Home Decor. This chair comes with sits and standing poses and made my morning coffee too! Also included in that gift are Plans for Trip to the Moon. Now if  only had a rocket to get me there. I bet I can find one somewhere on the hunt…

Last Minute Holiday YDEAS

YDEA Santa Biker

Holiday Hustle and Bustle…

Today marked my last day of work for 2016. I am relieved, yet stressed about all the last-minute shopping I still need to complete in the next few days. If I’m going to play Santa I may as well look the part. I found the Santa Biker outfit at YDEA. This group gift will put you in the mood to make those final gift choices. The gift is FREE and the group is FREE to join!

Christmas Party like it’s 2016…

The reason I stopped by YDEA was because of their Christmas gift to it’s members. The FREE Christmas Men’s Gift 2016 is a dazzling holiday suit with a paisley jacket with green lapels, A red bow tie, black slacks and shoes. With this you’ll be all set for a night out or entertaining in.

 

YDEA Christmas 2016

Deck the Halls…

I visited the 6th Midwinter Fair over the weekend and came away with some FREE gifts just for stopping by the vendor booths. Just look for the red gift boxes at the displays for some holiday cheer. At the simply shelby booth, I received the Christmas Country Holiday Wreath. I also picked up the FREE Red Christmas Shelf at the Mistique display. Now the big question is… Which one do I give Pru and which one goes to Edi? And what do I get for Love and Astrid? Will this shopping nightmare ever end?  🙂
