July Group Gift from -Hanaya-

What do bluer than blue Forget-me-nots, pink gerbera and a white Asiatic lily have
in common?

They are part of a Summery Flowers wearable bouquet with pose that is the July group gift from -Hanaya-. Also included is a rezzable display version in a sweet little vase.

June Group Gift from -Hanaya-

The -Hanaya- team has been busily working on products for the Rhapsody event, which is coming up later this month. So we have been in a retro-hippie-flower-child mood.

That is why this month’s VIP group gift is a little bench with a pink poppy.

The bench is 2 li, and contains 3 cute menu-driven animations.

The gift was sent out on the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles group today, and will remain in the notices for the next 2 weeks. If you missed yours, please stop by -Hanaya- in-world and get it from the Group Gift vendor. Just make sure that you have the group active first.

And have a wonderful day!


-Hanaya- and the Beached Bunny Hunt 4

Summer is coming, and with it, the 4th annual Beached Bunny Hunt. A very well organized event by Allie Munro of Grumble, the hunt features 20 sponsors and a total of 58 designers.

We decided to make an exclusive, brand new item for this event –
the Pelee Island Beach Chair. The event starts on June 1st.

May Group Gift from -Hanaya-

Don’t you adore the scent of lilacs? When I smell a lilac in bloom, I am immediately transported to the streets of my childhood, feeling the excitement late spring and the promises of carefree summers.

-Hanaya- Spring is Here [mesh]

-Hanaya- Spring is Here Group Gift

A colourful little bucket holds three sprigs of lilac blossom, and comes in 4 colours. The gift has been sent out on the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles in-world group, and will also remain available in the Customer Service area of our store during the month of May.

Not a member of the group? -Hanaya- Spring is Here will be available for sale starting in June 2014 both in-world as well as on the Second Life Marketplace.


And speaking of May, we will be participating in 2 events – the Cotton Candy Hunt, and Funny Puppet Fair. More news on the gifts for both events, as well as kawaii products for the fair coming soon 🙂

April is the month of flowers @ -Hanaya-

I guess you guys know I am majorly into gardening in real life, and that I am a transplanted Canadian who now lives in the mild climate of southern Germany. Having it actually be warm enough to plant out annual flower seedlings outside at the beginning of April is something that I still treasure, despite living here for almost 6 years. Especially when I can gloat about the weather to my Canadian friends and family.

Anyway … I have three new flower products out today. And all are gifts.

-Hanaya- Bowl Full of Roses GROUP GIFT

-Hanaya- Bowl Full of Roses

First up is the April group gift for my sweet customers in the VIP group. A bowl of gently rippling water holds 3 perfect floating roses, and scattered rose petals. The package contains 3 versions – with more or less petals. A mesh product with sculpted petals – brand new for April 2014. The gift was sent out on the group today, and will remain available at -Hanaya- in-world store for the month of April.

And to complement that, is the next gift –

-Hanaya- Floating Roses

-Hanaya- Floating Mesh Roses

These precious little mesh roses are the our hunt gift for the Evil Bunny Hunt. They contain a script that makes them gently rotate at random speeds and direction. Use them either on Linden Water or prim water. And since they are only 1 LI, put out a bunch of them – that creates the best effect!

-Hanaya- French Country Mixed Bouquet

-Hanaya- French Country Mixed Bouquet

-Hanaya- is also one of the sponsors of the Evil Bunny Hunt, which means that if you finish the hunt and get to the very end, you will find lots of golden eggs hidden in a forest to reward you. And one of them is our French Country Mixed Bouquet – a brand new release especially for this event.

We are store number 5 in the hunt, and our hint is:

if pigs could fly
and roosters lay eggs
on the moon we’d make bacon omelletes

So join me in getting into the spirit of spring – with flowers 🙂


Spring Gifts for Hunters + Subscribers from -Hanaya-

I have spring fever! So, here are a couple of gifts …

First, a gift for all our sweet customers in both our in-world groups as well as
Subscribe-O-Matic. It is a wearable mesh flower with fluttering butterflies. Packaged in 5 ice-creamy colours, each includes a holding pose for the left hand. If you miss the initial inventory offer, pop by the store and get it from the Subscribe-O history, or from group notices.

-Hanaya- Butterfly Flowers

-Hanaya- Butterfly Flowers GROUP + SUBSCRIBE-O GIFT

Second, we are participating in the Spring Market and Umbrella Hunt at the Old Europe sim. We have a cute little cart set up with spring products, and a super-low li table and chairs (see image below). The gift is easy to find, just look for the umbrella leaning against our cart. But watch your step – the place is pretty laggy.
