Vintage Me!

coming soon to fab free

Hey gang!

I’m all about the vintage/retro stuff.  Those of us old enough (cough!) to remember those days know they had a feel.  The 70’s had a feel, the 80’s had a feel.  Somehow once the 90’s started, the era’s started blending together (for me at least), they didn’t have *such* a distinction as the earlier decades (I’m barely old enough to remember the 60’s, but I know that and the 50’s, 40’s, etc also had a feel of their own).

So in my pic, I’ve got a bit of the sixties *and* seventies (can you distinguish?), thanks to the Vintage Fair!  Which is a lot of fun by the way.

The Awesome Shirt

This is screaming 77-79 to me.  Back in the day I had these sorts of shirts with band names on them (The Police for one.)  This is made by The Annex at The Vintage Fair, there are several different designs for you to choose from and they will set you back only 50L.    It fits:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Maitreya

The Decor

The Stay Wild Moon Child Poster by InkMe is from a gacha that is only 50L at The Vintage Fair.  Not sure the era on that one but as you saw in my previous post, I love all things celestial, so …. gimme!

Woodstock poster behind me, sixties, natch.  1969 to be exact.  You can get that on market from What Next for only 50L

I’m not showcasing the other things but just to give you a rundown of the era….

Pants – very seventies, obv.

The chair to my left (was a gift from Aline!  Thank you!!!!) is very sixties and my favorite color, pink!

Lastly the floppy hat (I bet you aren’t surprised to hear I have one just like this in rl!) is very late sixties, early seventies.

Little April Shower

Little April Shower

Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
Beating a tune
As you fall all around
Drip, drip, drop
Little April shower
What can compare
To your beautiful sound

Little April Shower – Walt Disney’s Bambi

The best thing about April showers is that they help make everything bloom green and bright.  I do love a cozy rainy day and because I grew up in a place that has a lot of thunderstorms, I especially love a good thunder and lightning storm.    Where I live now, we rarely have them and I do miss them.  A good rainy, stormy day can be very cozy and a chance to snuggle in with a good book and something hot to drink.  However, where I live now, we can get a good 7-10 days with grey skies, no sun and and no fun storms.  Boo!  I do not like *that* kind of grey weather.

If it’s Gonna Rain…

If it’s gonna rain, it’s best to be prepared.  As a one time Girl Scout (I hated it.  lol  I was the only one who had a mom who made her wear the *entire* uniform to every meeting!), I was taught to be prepared.  As a FabFree Blogger, I am taught to be fashionable without breaking the bank.  Case in point, these super adorbs boots from MOoH!.  These are from a 50L Gacha (Key below) which has soooo many cute boots.  I chose the Shabby Chic to go with my outfit.

Of Course You’re Gonna Need an…

Umbrella!  Mine comes from LISP Bazaar for only 10L on marketplace!  It has a series of poses with a texture change umbrella for each!  The poses are all adorable.

So now I am gonna take myself in outta the rain and make some yummy comfort food for dinner…. more soon gang!

As Aline already knows (and she *still* lets me blog!  I tell ya that girl is a saint!) and now you all do too, I love to change the words to songs, I generally make them very silly.  But sometimes they just come out downright BAD!  But that’s the fun in it!

I know, I know, y’all are waiting to find out what goodies I found for you this morning!  So, thanks to the group chat (which is usually loaded with fun info and helpful peeps like yerselves!) I learned of a little part of Scandalize that I (since I’ve been living under a rock, apparently, which someone once told me  lol) is just chock full of freebies!  It’s called Scandals Frees and News.  The group is free to join and it is an entire room of clothes and complete outfits that are totally free!  Really, if they had this sort of stuff back in the dark ages when I was a newbie, well, let’s just say I would have been much better dressed!   You can get an entire wardrobe here!

The cute pants and belt I am wearing are one of the things I found there. They come in this solid color and the same color but with cute little polka dots.  I found so much though don’t be surprised if they pop up in another blog post.  These super cute pants fit:

  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Isis
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya

OK chickadees, this girl is *starving*! So I’m gonna go find some lunch.  Happy shopping y’all!

The Coven

The Coven

In much need of some distraction, I have been so ready for the weekend. Thank goodness for Second Life, am I right?! Weekends are often a favorite time in-world. Not only are there more of us online, there are some pretty cool sales for my fellow shopaholics and I to indulge in. This weekend you won’t want to miss the Happy Weekend offer by Muniick. I’ll tell you all about it below. Also, No Cabide catered to my affinity for sweaters with an adorable sweater skirt and top combo group gift. As always I’ll give you the details further on. Have fun Fab Free!

Muniick

I have to to say that I’m often impressed with what Muniick has on sale for Happy Weekend. This weekend you can pick up their Llewellyn Dining Collection for just 60 linden. The set is beautiful, and includes the table, chairs, place settings, placemats, candles, chandelier, and the potted plant. Most of the items have texture change options, and the seating has quite a few sit animations. Do not miss out on this one!

Happy Weekend - 60L 9 Piece Dining Set

No Cabide

It’s finally started to get colder where I live and I am hence feeling desire for the coziness of sweaters and cold-weather fashion. No Cabide put out a very cute sweater top and skirt combo as a free group gift, and I’m absolutely enjoying it. The top and skirt can be worn together or separate, and the color/texture change hud has solid and plaid options to choose from. The No Cabide group has a one-time join fee of 75 linden.

Women seem wicked

Fabfree Post: Women seem wicked

Faces come out of the rain

When you’re alone, can you hear the wind howling through the dead branches on that old tree swaying in the backyard? Can you hear the hiss of the little black cats circling your door looking for an unlucky place to lay their heads for the night? Can you hear the cackles of the silhouettes that cross the full moon riding their broomsticks? Do you hear something tapping, gently rapping on your chamber door, or is it silenced by the faces that come out of the rain evermore?

 

Apple Blossom has a free gift out at the Halloween Shop & Hop event and its spooktastic! It comes with a hud so this 1 piece top and bottom because 3 different outfits! The Ciel Halloween Edition color options come in (pictured above) Spiderwebs/bats, Colorful Skulls, and Ghosts.

Become the Druid Wizard

Druid Wizard

It was like a whisper or was it just the wind. The voice I just heard, murmur in my ear. I continued working, finally after a long day, I retired to my bed. Was awoken from such a vivid dream. As my eyes opened the dream faded, all but a feeling, then the voice again. “You will embark on a journey across the grid. To find the pieces you need to become the Druid Wizard I seek.” I shook my head then fell fast asleep. I rose the next morning thinking nothing of my dream the night before. Again the voice whispered in my ear. “To Kitty Creations you must go, quickly you must embark on the journey. For in a fortnight’s time I will need you. Look upon the floor and follow the silver gargoyle tracks. They will lead thy to what it is you seek. A miniature charred looking gargoyle which holds your gift.”
Once I found my gift I went to open it. The voice told me nay, you need to find all the piece before you can open the gifts. Off to Lindy the voice sent me to look upon the The Renaissance Hunt poster for the mini gargoyle that harbored my hint. I traveled the grid scaling mountains, across lakes, over vast sims, large oceans, and treacherous passes. To Simply Shelby, Delightful Creations, and Sweet Revolutions. Finally my journey was nearing it’s end. I had gathered all the pieces to which I was sent to find. I opened them in order from the first found to the last.
I donned the leather red hooded jacket and black pants from Kitty Creations. Pulled on the worn red leather Druda shoes from Lindy. I yielded the crystal wizard staff from Simply Shelby. Before I could open the others I was told to enter the dark woods. Travel through them until I saw the mystic fog. Was to follow it, where I came upon a druid rock circle. There I opened my last to gifts. The Spinning Pentagram from Delightful Creations and the Magical Crystal Of Lunimba from Sweet Revolutions.
They seemed to both spring from the boxes and move magically into place at the center of the stone circle. I was drawn onto the pentagram near the Crystal of Lunimba. I held up the staff and my hand. Before I knew it I was chanting the crystal was glowing and magical sparks filled the air. Swirling around me zodiac rune symbols appeared. Out of thin air a mystical pentagram formed in my hand. I had finally become the Druid Wizard to which the voice sought.

You too can embark on your own journey finding magical items of Witches, Wisewomen, and Wizards. That is the theme of this years The Renaissance Hunt X. The Historical Hunts Ltd. holds three hunts a year. All of them are free just like this one. Why not have a little fun, do something different, and join the hunt. You never know what goods you might find.

In a quest to enjoy some sunshine and get some Vitamin D, Blue and I have taken to exploring bright beachy locations. These little excursions have led us to some pretty cool places. Not to mention that the promise of adventure is also probably the best way to get me out of my beloved pajamas. lol

Speaking of not being in pajamas, my colorful t-shirt dress is a free gift by UNA at Second Life’s 17th Birthday shopping event. It comes in rainbow, black, and white. My cute chunky heart earrings are a free SL17B gift by NeverWish. I thought they were perfect with the rainbow “Road Trip” dress by UNA. I’m kind of digging the whole ’80s vibe this look gives. Blue picked up a few freebies at the SL17B Shop & Hop event also. His flip-flops are the free SL17B gift from Native Urban, while the cool ring he’s wearing is the free mens gift at SL17B by Lapointe & BastChild. There’s a ladies version of the ring as well. Blue’s shirt and shorts are both hunt prizes on the AllStuff hunt. His cool floral sleeveless hoodie is a dollarbie hunt prize at Waffles, while his casual linen shorts are a free hunt gift at UnderDog. The AllStuff Hunt ends June 30th, so don’t wait and miss these!

Backyard Cuddles

Weary of the indoors Blue and I retreated to the sanctuary of our own backyard. Relaxing in our comfiest attire, and enjoying the fresh air, the rest of the world and all its troubles seemed to melt away, at least for the moment.
