-Hanaya- Autumn Marigolds with Table

Now that marigolds have done their job of protection in the vegetable garden, it is time to cut them and bring them indoors to add their awesome shades of orange and gold to your autumn decor.

Arranged in a glazed pot decorated with maple leaves, these unassuming cheerful flowers will bring a spicy scent of summer and a burst of sunshine into your home or business.

-Hanaya- Autumn Marigolds with Table (NEW)

Set on a simple table, the arrangement can also be used for remembrance during All Saints’ Day, All Souls’ Day and Día de los Muertos, which will be celebrated in about 10 days time.

The -Hanaya- Autumn Marigolds with Table are now available for purchase both at our in-world store, as well as on the Second Life Marketplace.


-Hanaya- Scary Urban Photo Scene GIFT

-Hanaya- is participating in the Boo-tiful Disaster Gridwide Hunt, which starts on Saturday, October 22nd.

We  welcome the opportunity to give away a fun Halloweeny creation, which was made especially for this hunt.  The -Hanaya- Scary Urban Photo Scene can be used as a stand-alone decoration, or as a photo prop for all our awesome bloggers out there.

-Hanaya- Scary Urban Photo Scene

What can you expect to see when you unpack our gift?

You will find a fully sculpted urban street scene, complete with a garbage can fire, broken cinder-brick walls and cracked pavement, which has tufts of grass growing through it. Scattered about are a bunch of pumpkins (of course), and a creepy sticky spider web and spider hangs in the corner.

Our famous waving ghosts (yeah they really wave) are paired up with more pumpkins on a string to light the scene for you.

The set also contains 3 menu-driven PG animations – one in the spider, and two in the pumpkins.

The obligatory fog emitter (touch grass tuft to turn on/off), and scary music and sounds are included. Sound is owner-only operable – touch the garbage can to do so. All items pictured in the vendor image are part of the set, including the sculpted window, flower box with ivy and the oh-so-black silhouette cat. But not including the girl .. that’s me ^.^

More information about the hunt is available on the Greatest Love hunt blog.

The hunt runs from October 22 to November 5, 2011.
Our store is # 108 and the hint is ‘Nevermore’.

Have fun hunting!

-Hanaya- Roses & Calla Lilies Hunt Gift

If you have time over the next month, please stop by our in-world store and pick up your copy of the -Hanaya- Roses & Calla Lilies, which is a hunt gift for the Perly Touch Hunt.

-Hanaya- Roses & Calla Lilies

The hunt, organized by friends of Perl Herbit (Bovarro), is an event to remember Perl, who passed away in July of this year. Perl was an awesome hunt organizer and having a hunt in her honour seems like a perfect way to remember her. I only knew her for a short while, and not very well at that, but I do know that she loved flowers.

The hunt starts today, October 15th and runs until November 15, 2011.

We are store number 57  and our hint is:

‘-Hanaya- is the name of my store.’

-Hanaya- @ FTLO Boo-for-2 Event

Halloween thoughts on this fine Sunday –

  • things that go bump in the night
  • orange things
  • things that are yummy
  • magic-y black shiny things
  • things that entrap you
  • strangely spooky-but-cute growing things

If these thoughts create a picture in your mind’s eye, then you may be seeing what I saw when was working on creating the -Hanaya- Halloween items for the FTLO Boo-for-2 Event.

The event starts tomorrow at a secret location here, and promises to bring you fun and cool goodies from some of the awesomest of Second Life’s creators and designers. And from our store too 😉

 -Hanaya- bOo BoO Waving Ghosts Tree

The Waving Ghosts Tree is modeled after a real life tree that my daughter and I used to decorate with tissue paper ghosts that used to sway in the wind.
And ok, I took a bit of artistic license – we used to have apples on our tree, not tomatoes ^.^

Anyway, the ghosties are scripted to wave at you and the whole yummy tree is topped with a string of flashing Halloween lights to add a special touch to your outdoor spaces. It comes complete with an autumn-coloured base with sculpted grass tufts and looks great from all sides. If you want to see it rezzed out, please pop by our in-world store.

Available for purchase (100 L) at the FTLO Boo-for-2 Event.

-Hanaya- bOo BoO Pumpkin House FTLO Gift

A pumpkin house big enough to walk into and hang out in, while outside the night is stormy and eerie sounds* raise goosebumps on your flesh. The pumpkin contains 6 menu-driven PG animations – 4 inside the pumpkin and 2 outside. Walk inside and use the pillows, or sit on the giant leaf to have outdoor fun ^-^

We also added a teeny garden complete with fog-emitting* sculpted grass clumps, a flickering magical black candle, and rickety steps leading to your front door. And of course a spider net with a scaaaary spider, and the fly that go away and got very very very large!

So please come and check out the fun at the FTLO Boo-for-2 Event, which starts on October 10th and continues until October 31st.

 * Click grass for fog, and candle for sound on/off (sound is owner-operated).

Autumn Harvest – new stuff @ -Hanaya-

With cool evenings upon us, I wanted to change up my Second Life living room from it’s summer colours. I thought of what might make me want to stay inside and cuddle up on the couch – cushy pillows in earthy tones, a stack of books to read, and a place to put my feet up. And lots of places for my family and friends to hang out with me.

-Hanaya- Harvest Fair Living Room Set – NEW

So I created the -Hanaya- Harvest Fair  Living Room Set. The couch and chairs seat up to 6 people at once, and contain 12 couple and 8 single avatar animations.  A Vintage Duck Decoy book end holds up a stack of books – what will you read today?

A harvest cornucopia overflowing with seasonal fruits, embellished with ivy sits on the coffee table, in case you need healthy munchies.  A scrunchy rug completes the look, which is complemented by our ‘Cloudy Days’ wall art.

A demo of the Harvest Fair Living Room is set up on the second floor of our in-world store. Please stop by to visit us and try it out if you have time! The set is also available in our webstore on the Second Life Marketplace.

-Hanaya- Harvest Cornucopia – NEW

The cornucopia and bamboo are also sold separately, and are available in the new product area of our main store.

-Hanaya- Autumn Bamboo in Wicker Basket

Have a wonderful weekend, and enjoy the first days of October!
