Hey gang!

We have a lot of fun here on the Fab Free Blog, but today I would like to get serious for a moment.

We know cancer is evil (I refuse to capitalize it), and that anyone can get it, even our beloved fur legged babies.  But did you know cancer is the leading cause of death in dogs?   It is estimated that 1 in 3 domestic dogs will develop cancer, which is the same incidence of cancer among humans.

So when I popped over to Foxwood for something totally unrelated, I saw the story of Ellie, who belongs to the girl who runs Foxwood.  Ellie is her Golden Retriever and Ellie has cancer.  I have lost two out of three of my Goldens to cancer, as well as my beloved Shih Tzu, Tara.  So I know the story all too well, and it is an issue that is very close to home for me.  I never had the chance to help my babies, but Ellie has a chance to fight and we can help her.

The three goldens in my photo, are a set that you can get at Foxwoods for only 75L (they are adorable too!!!  I love the one I can carry around and I’ve had three people say they wanted one too when they saw me carrying her!) and all proceeds go to help Ellie.  We all love the sales and we love the cute sl pets, this is a chance to enjoy both while helping a real pet have a chance at fighting the evil known as cancer.  (I have lost both my parents to it as well).

I’m not sure how long the sale is up for, I reached out but haven’t heard back.  I checked a little while ago and it is still up.

I hope each and every one of you will stop by Foxwood for this cause.  Cancer *can* be beaten, for both humans and our furbabies!

In just ten days Tara will be gone five years and my heart still breaks every single day (and someday Jian will make us a cute set of Shih Tzus so that I can have her with me at least in second life) (I keep requesting it!).  Her and Sumner (my Golden boy I lost to cancer) are pictured below.  I never got to have human kids, and honestly I raised these two from babies and I couldnt have loved them more if they had been human.  They were my kids.

These are the faces of canine cancer, the ones we must fight for.

Sumner (above) lost to Hemangiosarcoma at the age of 9 on 8.29.2004

Tara aka Tee (below) lost to Lymphoma of the intestines at the age of 12 on 11.25.2016

Evening Walk

Hey gang,

Just out for a nice autumn evening walk around the neighborhood.  I love the light at dusk, when things are beginning to quiet down.  The sun is tucking itself in for bed, and the stars are starting to peek out.  It’s kind of magical really, a constant transition of the sky that we really only notice when day is turning into night and vice versa.

I also found the perfect downtime autumn outfit, this cute Fab Free Group Gift courtesy of our very own Fab Free designer, Blink 2 Wink.   When I saw they had customized this for Fab Free, well, how could I resist?  And who *doesn’t* want to feel fabulous, and look fabulous and *be* fabulous!

This cute ensemble is free and all you have to do is wear your Fab Free group tag and click the vendor!  I tell ya, it doesn’t get any easier than that.  Nosirreebob!

It fits:

  • Freya
  • Isis
  • Venus
  • Legacy
  • Maitreya
  • Hourglass
  • Physique

Stay fabulous and fierce!

The Doorway into Autumn

autumn_006

Hey gang,

I’m here with Tara (aka Miss Tee, aka Chia pet, aka Chi, etc etc) to share with you some gorgeous Autumn decor for your home.  This week would have been Tara’s birthday if her real life self were still here and although I have been unable to find a shih tzu companion in world that looks like her (she was a black and white shih tzu, and I kept her hair cute and short, as she was a bit of a tomboy!), I try to get as close as I can and this little one from Rezz Room is very cute.  😉  (My Golden Animesh Sumner is also based on a real life furbaby of mine I had many moons ago).

But I digress, I am here to speak of the glories of autumn decor, it’s just that she is on my mind this week, September is a difficult month for me, I lost Sumner on the 29th of August, my dad on the 18th and my Mom on the 29th.(not the same year of course)  So with them all lumped together and my little Tee’s birthday in the mix, it’s in the forefront of my mind lately.

Let’s talk about Autumn!  Shanti always has some goodies for free for everyone and this time of year is no exception.  Not only is there a free box of autumn themed goodies (including the rug here and several other items!) but there is also the fireplace behind me for 55L, along with the cute sunflower tapestry, which I love for only 45L but brand new this year is the Ready for Autumn Golden who is only 1L!  I’ve taken a closer-up photo below to show you the little lights so cozy on the fireplace and on our autumn wreath wearing handsome pup as well!  It’s all got a soft lovely glow that will bring a cozy atmosphere to those chilly autumn nights coming up!
No group required for any of these goodies.

Don’t forget all clothing at Shanti is 75L and under, clothing for mesh bodies is on the right and for classic and BOM, on the left.  Though some of the mesh bodies contain classic clothing, just check the vendors for that.  😉

Also, my cute boots are a free group gift from Promagic, they have a load of group gifts and their group is free to join (ok its a whole ROOM of group gifts).

I’m still hoping summer will come back because this girl is not a fan of the cold.  The only *good* thing is that I get to whip out my collection of fingerless gloves that I love to wear.  😉  Of course with covid, I’ve been reduced to wearing them at home, but that’s ok, my hands are cold all winter.  😉 (as if I need an excuse to wear them!)

Happy Hour, Every Day!

I’m about to show many things that have already been featured but I like the way certain pieces just fit together.  So if you already picked up all of these items, just scroll through it.

Yesterday, Whisper showed the key lime Prestige dress from the OoEas! midnight mania board.  This dress just happens to be in my favorite color and just happens to work well with the Stone Love Crystal jewelry set from Shag.  This dollarbie jewelry comes with earrings, necklace, and ring.

There is also a short corset top in grass that is free at OoEas!.  The chocolate Flight jeans are L$72 at GryphonWings.  I like this look with the spike belt that was sent to the Fabulously Free in SL group from Joie Arai of OoEas!.

The pink Sanctimonia bra and panty set is in the Virtue Path hunt gift from OoEas!.  I love how the Synapsis jewelry set from Primalot accentuates this look.  The pink Synapsis set includes earrings, headpiece tiarra, and necklace.  All sub-o gifts including the Synapsis jewelry is available in the Primalot sub-o history.

BeBe DoLL has this floral peach Jen dress as the welcome gift for new sub-o members.  Just touch the subscriber and you will receive the mini dress.  The coral Rose Ballet flats are a dollarbie at Chuculet.  The Bubbles ‘Fraiches’ Earrings and Necklace are another past gift that can be found in the Primalot sub-o history.

If you’re in need of a simple black dress, Intimate You has the Beth mini dress at only L$10!  I absolutely love the faded denim Zimmy flats that Whisper blogged earlier today.  The flats are free at Shiny Things for members of the sub-o group.  The floral cyan ‘Copious’ necklace and earring set are another past gift from the Primalot sub-o history.

A few days ago (on April 25th) the green leah dress was sent to the a piece of candy sub-o group.  This group gets TONS of gifts weekly!  The silver Sequin earrings are another gift in the Primalot sub-o history (yes, I’m sorting jewelry today!).  Earlier today in the FL group the Tara store was mentioned repeatedly.  I took the trip over to see what the commotion was and picked up the Madly Tied to His Feet heels and several other goodies from the lucky chairs.  I know my feet don’t exactly match my skin color… I’m terrible at matching skin color.  *Sorry*
