Furnishings Friday #17 – Falling Leaves & Lost Keys

Parkplace I can hardly believe we are on week #17 of Furnishings Friday already!  I started this challenge for myself because I was having trouble motivating myself to show non avatar items like clothing,skins, accessories lol and there are just so many wonderful and free home furnishings that needed a place here on Fabulously Free in SL.  Since then, I have noticed that I am even starting to use them on unFridays sometimes too YAY!

Anyways… This week for Furnishings Friday, I am going to feature a few prizes from the Falling Leaves Hunt.  I will be showing more of it soon, but today seemed like a good day to start the first round!  The Falling Leaves Hunt began on October 3rd and will run until October 24th.  All of the gifts are free, and are autumn home and garden themed items.  You can find their official blog at the following link with a hunt preview, hints and a complete list of slurls – http://thecookiejarcommunity.wordpress.com/falling-leaves-hunt/

icon In the photo at the top of this post, I am digging furiously through the Dark Walnut Table With Accessories made by Park Place for those keys I can never seem to find lol.  This gift from Park Place includes the table with a drawer that opens and closes, as well as all of the pictures and table accessories you see.

Below, I am taking a few minutes to check my messages in a little cozy space I have made for myself with a few of the prizes.  First, I started with the Designer Prims Falling Leaves Studio Skybox that is just 17 prims.  The animated sofa (seats two w/ accessories), rug and ottoman with steaming coffee is the gift you can find at PRIME.  Zinnia’s is the designer of the Bye-Bye Birdie Coffee Table Set.

livingroom Another Falling Leaves Hunt prize that I couldn’t wait to show off is the Ochun Ottoman with Sits that also came with the
Autumn Wall Decal shown from Wings of Enchantment.  The ottoman is draped with a cozy blanket and has such cute, lazy sits.Wingsofenchantment

On a side note…  the gorgeous peach mesh coat I am wearing is just 15L in the Ricielli Halloween Hunt 🙂  It’s #1… and.. If you’d like more information on hunts around the grid, check out our SLHunts Page at the top!
