Decor Galore

Coming Soon

Hey FabFree! I am getting cozy in my PJs and enjoying this pretty new bed set I found! My entire decor scene is made of free hunt prizes and group gifts today. I have some time-sensitive freebies to share in this post, so I’m going to jump right to it so you can get them too!

I Love Kazza

I was delighted to discover that Kazza is participating in the Aurelias Egg Hunt. This hunt ends today, so go ASAP to get their hunt prizes! Both of Kazza’s prizes are free, and you are looking for eggs on the sim to find them. The first prize is the “BytheSea” bed, which comes in Adult and PG versions with options to change the colour of the bedsheets to blue and white or pink and white. The second prize is the carpet, pillows, and table. The pillows include animations that are meant to be used on the carpet. I’m in love with these finds, and they are my personal favourites from the Easter season this year. Don’t delay and collect up the prizes today before it’s too late.

New at Noveny

I’m not sure how new these gifts are at Noveny, but they were new to me! All of their gifts are by the landing point. Here are the gifts I am showing from Noveny in my scene this morning:

  • The rectangular wall shelf with the plant and sculpture on it is a TeleportHub group gift. Just join the TeleportHub group for 10L and the gift is yours for no cost!
  • The leaf-shaped wall structure is a group gift for members of Noveny’s group. Their group currently costs 30L to join. This is a pretty cool item, because the Noveny logo is a leaf and it’s a nice homage to the store! You can resize the shelves to fit your needs. You may choose to decorate these shelves with smaller decor items (plants, food, books, etc.) to make your scene look pretty.
  • The little lightbulb sculpture that I decorated the shelf with is another Noveny group gift. If you look closely inside the lightbulb, there is dirt and a small tree growing inside it. This is a “terrarium” and it’s really pretty. The Noveny group has some other group gifts as well and they give out gift cards sometimes so it’s worth the join fee if you love home and decor items.

Enjoy decorating your homes, FabFree! I’m going to go back to lounging in my PJs on this fine morning. 😉

Takin’ it to the Streets

ukraine flag_010

Tis just me gang,

Sneaking in for a post.  Ohhhhh gollygosh, it’s been a crazy rl time for me.  Real life job stuff has had me on my toes the last week or so, coming to a head tomorrow (in a good way, hopefully!)  So I didn’t forget about y’all!  Just scrambling to keep up!  You know when you have those waves of time where you know if you can just get done with A, B and C, you can regroup and refocus?  I’m trying to get those things done now and hopefully by this weekend, be able to breathe again.

Meanwhile, the war in Ukraine sadly rages on.  Many of the designers have been creating wonderful items so that we can show our support for the poor people of Ukraine.  I’ve got a couple more to showcase for you today so let’s get on with it.

This super cute and colorful top is a find on marketplace for 25L by Morph Studios.  It fits:

  • CLASSIC XXS-L
  • TONIC CURVY / FINE
  • EBODY CLASSIC / CURVY
  • LEGACY
  • KUPRA
  • MAITREYA
  • SLINK HOURGLASS / PHYSIQUE
  • BELLEZA FREYA/ ISIS / VENUS

This pose is another cute marketplace find and it also comes with a pose for two people, so they’ve gotcha covered whether you are posing alone or with a friend.  It is made by Chocolate Cake (which sounds good right about now!) and will cost you absolutely nothing (aka free!).

My face tattoo in Ukraine Colors is a gift from Carol B, I found it on market also for free.

Lastly, my fellow protestor in the back is a 10L find also on market by Salmagundi (I just like to say that out loud!).  He is copy so you can turn him into an entire crowd if you please.

The War is in Color

No War & Why Her?

“Now I lay in my grave at age 21

Long before you were born

Before I bore a son

What good did it do?

Well hopefully for you

A world without war

A life full of color.” 

The War Was in Color, Carbon Leaf

Our hearts ache for our Ukrainian friends.  In SL, we all probably know someone directly impacted by the horrors of the Russian-Ukrainian war. We feel helpless; they might feel hopeless. How do we help?

This newest couples pose from Something New struck me as being entirely appropriate for these aching times.  “Why Her?” is available for L100 at the Pose Event running until April 19th.

On the same day I picked up the pose, No.Match released their recent charity hairstyle, No_War.  The hair is beautiful, and 100% of the proceeds go to Ukrainian Aid efforts.  I not only bought my customary blonde pack for 50L, but then went on and bought the fatpack (of colors I will never wear) for 200L.  The braids can be worn with or without the “Dandelion” add-on of blue and yellow ribbons and flowers.

No War & Why Her?

We feel so helpless in real life to help our Ukrainian friends.  We can’t go help; we can’t provide a warm bed or a comforting hug.  But, what we CAN do is remember them daily.  Honor them daily.  Wear their colors of blue and yellow.  Fly their flag.

Innocent people are dying, and even if we can only stand up virtually, let’s stand together for peace. Create scenes like this one to remind us that this war, like all wars, is in color.

Matching Support for Ukraine

ukraine_008

There is no monopoly on common sense
On either side of the political fence
We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
Believe me when I say to you
I hope the Russians love their children too

Russians – Sting

Hey gang!

Just popping in to show you what I found for Cray and I to show our support of Ukraine (the stories just break my heart).

Really as the Sting song Russians says “There’s no such thing as a winnable war”, which every time there is a warlike conflict, that line pops right into my head.  Back when I was a teenager and this song was first released, I never thought that so many years later it would become relevant again.  Sting has another song entitled “History will Teach us Nothing“, another line that pops into my head all too often.

It’s all just leaders and their egos.  If we could all remember and embrace that we are all the same on the inside, perhaps there would be no more wars.  But then I am an idealist, and most leaders are not.  It makes me so sad that when the leaders of countries are fighting, the ones who pay the price every single time are the people who are unfortunate just to be living in the country and who are basically innocent in the conflict.

But that’s just how this little idealist sees it.  I know it is a lot more complex than that (isn’t it?), but the complexity still does not make it the right thing to do.  War has never solved a problem, except to reduce the population and gosh hasn’t the pandemic done enough of that lately?!  The moment we are on the brink of returning to normal, someone’s gotta start killing people another way.  Sigh.

My mom got me involved in penpalling when I was 11, and my first two penpals were Japanese.  Over many many MANY decades I wrote and made friends all over the world (including Russia and Ukraine!) and not a single one was very different from me.  The cultures are different, yes, but inside we are all so much the same.  Same worries, fears, hopes, dreams…  Same wanting to be understood and accepted for who we are.

They say world peace and understanding begins in a small circle of people, like family and friends.  Perhaps if we all just put some love and understanding out to someone we know who needs it, or whom we have *not* been peaceful and understanding to in the past, perhaps those little bits of energy can begin to shift the energy on this entire planet and help more people find peace and start to heal.

Just my thoughts, but I came here for freebies/dollarbies so please forgive my long-winded-ness.

I wanted to find something both Cray and I could wear to show our Ukraine support and I found a matching set on market.  Thanks to Angel’s Jewelry who has this set available on market for both genders for only 1L.  You get a full outfit for the girls (shirt, bodysuit and skirt) and a matching tee for the guys.  The mens wasn’t transfer so I had to send a second set to Cray as a gift.  These fit as follows:

Mens:

  • Jake
  • Signature
  • Slink
  • Legacy

Womens:

  • Maitreya
  • Isis
  • Freya
  • Hourglass
  • Legacy

I also found this cute hair bow from Sugarplum Boutique on market for free!

Anyhoo this was longer than I meant it to be.  Sending lots of peace and love to our planet! ❤

Peace For Ukraine

Peace For Ukraine

Here at FabFree we have all been hoping for peace for Ukraine. It is my hope that peace can be achieved in this war. For this reason, I am holding a sunflower to stand with Ukraine and for peace!

Generosity

The creators of Second Life have generously set out free gifts to support Ukraine. I found about 184 totally free gifts on the MP dedicated to the cause, which you can get by clicking here.

The free gifts I am showing today are:

  • A pose for male and female avatars that includes a globe of the world and a sunflower prop from Hazeel Poses, which can be bought for 0L here.
  • 2 heart bracelets with the Ukranian flag on it, which you can purchase on Moody Designs’ Marketplace here.

In solidarity,

xx

Support Ukraine in Style!

Stand with Ukraine 1

Second Life is one of the most wonderful worlds in existence.  We can stand together and support our friends in the Ukraine while also loving our Russian friends who never asked their leaders to go to war.  I was so inspired by Cre’s post about supporting the Ukraine, that I quickly hopped onto Marketplace to see what else I could find.  Truly, there are hundreds of freebies out there to show our support for the Ukraine.  I can’t blog them all here, but do a quick search and you will have a closet full of items to show your support.  I found this beautiful FREE Eiko Dress Ukraine by E&E which comes with matching shoes.  I also found the FREE matching Ukraine lipstick by MAD, and a FREE 90s Necklace with a hud including two different peace signs by Melt.

Stand with Ukraine 2

The shoes come with the outfit and match perfectly!

Stand with Ukraine 3

If you wish to provide financial support, Two Moons Gardens is donating the proceeds of their Inspiration Garden (249L) to the International Red Cross for use in their care of refugees and victims of acts of war.  The garden, pictured above, is located on a special sim where there are freebies and 10L items to purchase to support the Red Cross’s efforts in addition to donation kiosks.  Two Moons will be hosting a Salsa event in the near future, so please check them out.

Sizes:
