My Summer Space

My Space
Hello Fab Free’rs!I don’t know about you, but I am definitely experiencing summer weather right now. It’s sunny and hot! About this time of year for the past few years I start hearing about creative ways people are creating personal space indoors and outdoors. The ladies especially seem to be getting in on this movement, I keep hearing terms like “She Shack” and “Woman Cave”.  Limited on both space and funds in real life, I decided to try this trend myself here in Second Life.

Fab Exclusives

Two of the items I picked up to create this little back porch oasis are Fab Free Exclusive group gifts. This means they are absolutely FREE! As a reminder, and for those who are new to Fab Free, the Fab Free group is always always always FREE to join. The first gift I picked up to get started on my little space is the lovely aqua blue wood background with the pretty climbing ivy plant shown in my photo. It is the FREE Fab Free exclusive gift from Cwtch.  The background lovely all on it’s own (my photo really doesn’t do it justice), still I liked it as the main “wall” for my little spot. Next I also picked up the current FREE Fab Free exclusive group gift from Storax Tree. That little kitty napping in her gilded hanging cage was just too cute to resist. Besides, even my quite spot needs a furry friend to keep me company. The open cage is usually quite a bit larger, but I sized it down using the built in touch menu.

Not all Dust Bunnies are Bad

Along with their recent FREE group gift, Dust Bunny released the cutest gacha set recently. The FREE group gift is the beautifully detailed diy rose tea set. This pretty little piece of decor would look lovely sitting on a table or counter. The Dust Bunny group is also FREE to join. In the name of sprucing up my quiet space, I also Dust Bunny’s new Woodland Dreams gacha while I picked up the group gift. The gacha is just 50 lindens per play, and there is a bonus gift awarded after 20 plays. I didn’t play that many times, so I can’t really comment on that gift, however you’ll find it pictured next to the gacha machine at Dust Bunny, then you can decide on your own if it’s worth the effort. I ended up with a good selection of the common furniture/decor items after just a handful of plays. The hanging macrame chair is probably my favorite of the group, there are around 20 female sit poses, and almost as many male sit poses in the chair. Of course picked one of the least feminine of all the female poses for this photo!

Here are the details, Enjoy!

Doing a Bit of Decorating

A Bathroom Update

Doing some decorating.

My bathroom needed a virtual pick-me-up. I found just what I needed at Storax Tree. They are offering a lovely new gift for FabFree group members and since our group is free to join this gorgeous mesh rug is free too! It is just 2 prim and has mermaids on it and made me want to redo my bathroom space. (It also has a resize script in it, if you find it’s not quite the size you need).

So I set it down there… but I knew the little area was missing out on something.

The missing piece.

I picked up just what I needed at Mystique for 25L Tuesday. Thankfully, they leave their 25L Tuesday stuff out a few days after Tuesdays, so you’ll still be able to pick up this gorgeous sink and over the sink cabinet for the same 25L price that I got it. They come as a set together for the single price and the set includes poses (including some naughty ones if you are adventurous 😉 The set is 11 prim total together, but well worth it for the detail and poses you’ll be getting in my mind. Plus the price is hard to beat!

PS. If you don’t like the creme color I picked out for the sink, it also came in a brown and a pink for the same price!

***************

The Stuff…

Bathroom Set –  Mystique – Bathroom Sink Bura in Creme – (25L for 25L Tuesday) – hurry, it’s still sitting out!

Rug – Storax Tree – Simple Elegance Mesh Braided 19 Rug Mid (no copy) – (Fabfree group gift/0L/Group is Free to Join)

My Holiday Happy Place

Snapshot_001Hey  FabFree!  Are you ready for Christmas?  Unlike Carson who is running around trying to do last minute Christmas shopping as he mentioned [HERE],  I ordered most of the things on my list online this year to avoid the hustle and bustle of shopping centers in December, but… now I am stalking tracking numbers in hopes they all arrive on time!  I suppose ordering online does have it’s pros (being able to pick things up in the comfort of your own home), but also it’s cons (waiting for them to arrive!!).

My 80L Room

Fortunately I’m all cozy and comfortable in the sitting room that I put together with several 10L finds at The Wash Cart Sale while I wait.  My puppy is off frolicking in the snow somewhere (Serena, is he at your place again?!), but as you can see my kittycat is keeping me company just fine.  This whole scene is put together with just 80L.  I will list the items in my photo with direct TPs for easy shopping:

What I’m wearing:

You’ll have to forgive me, I know my posts have been a little longer than usual lately and that’s because I am trying to stuff so much in them – but there is just so much to talk about this month!  I also want to share with you the details of my outfit because I have some free and affordable finds ON too!

New Freebies @ Blueberry

Right around the corner at the entrance of Blueberry on the gifts wall, you will find that there is a new holiday gift priced at 0L.  Inside the gift is the pretty Mini Sweater I have on today (includes a ton of printed and solid textures) as well as the fun Unisex Antlers (also can be changed with the texture change HUD).  You don’t need to be in the group to pick this fab gift up, but… you can if you want to!

Sizes included:

  • Maitreya Lara
  • Slink Physique, Hourglass
  • Belleza Isis, Freya, Venus

Snuggling In My Boots

I picked up these snuggly Beth Boots fitted with socks at Aleutia’s offerings at The Wash Cart Sale for just 10L! The best part about these boots is that they come with a texture change hud, so you can match them up with whatever you are wearing in a click!

Whew.. ok, onto my next project!  Enjoy your day 🙂

Won’t You Stay For Tea?

Snapshot_003

Hello FabFree Readers! I am blogging a little different tonight and am showing you some free “stuff” rather than clothing items and avatar accessories like I usually do.

In my photo you will see the following displayed:

  • Table: The 4 prim blanket table in the Autumn Leaf print is available at  Cwtch  as a free Fabulously Free in SL group gift!  You can even click on it and change the colour of the table cloth to six different colours which will mean it should match in practically any setting you have!
  • Floor Rug:  You can find the Storax Tree Round Rug B6 as a free gift,  set to the Fabulously Free in SL inworld group as well.  At just 1 prim, you can copy these all over your pixel home!
  • Tea Set:  At DRD, The Black Widow Tea Set is available as a free group gift.  This fun Halloween themed item is just 2 prims and gives animated tea cups upon touch.  The DRD inworld group is free to join.

Have fun decorating… for FREE!
