-Hanaya- Season Change Mesh Greenhouses

To welcome spring, we are excited to bring you two more low prim mesh greenhouses that weigh in at only 9 LI. And the best part is, that you can change the colour themes for all 4 seasons at a touch.

Both greenhouses feature crisp textures, doors with optional security and greeting message, as well as planting bed/shrub add-ons for each season.

-Hanaya- and the World Tour 2014 Gridwide Hunt

This coming Friday will bring the start of the World Tour 2014 Gridwide Hunt. Organized by Spooky Mistwallow and her able team, this year’s hunt concept from Kastle Rock Hunts is a really fun one.

Imagine visiting 7 continents and scooping up awesome themed hunt gifts along the way. Using a custom-made hunt HUD, hunters will be able to start at a continent of their choice and keep track of which ones they have visited.

Since -Hanaya- is a Japanese flower shop, you will find us on the Asian continent.

-Hanaya- Hokura Shinto Shrine for hunt

-Hanaya- Hokura Shinto Shrine

Our hunt gift is a 100% original mesh shrine set on a kidney shaped grassy base, shaded by a cluster of bamboo and rocks. Two versions to offer a reduced Land Impact are offered as part of the gift.

The World Tour 2014 Gridwide hunt takes place February 14 – March 31, 2014.

Our hunt hint is:

A garden full of daffodils

So come and visit -Hanaya-, wander in our garden and forest, and hunt for the Hokura Shinto Shrine. Safe travels!

December -Hanaya- VIP Group Gift

I am almost shocked, that what with taking a 6 month long break, we still have loyal friends and customers in our store VIP group. Thank you so much for all your IMs welcoming me back to being active in the store again.

To show our appreciation, I thought instead of the usual monthly group gift, we would give away transferable L$ 500 gift cards, so you guys can get whatever you want in the store. Or re-gift the gift card to someone on your friends list.

-Hanaya- VIP Group December Gift for vendor

To claim and use your gift card, please do the following:

  1. TP to our store, and look for the group-only vendor in the Customer Information area
  2. Activate your -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles group
  3. Click the group-only vendor and accept delivery
  4. Unpack the boxed card at home, come back to the store and add/wear the gift card
  5. Follow instructions on the HUD or read the included note card
  6. Shop!

Please note that these special group-gift gift cards are limited to one per person, since they are transfer. I don’t want to encourage greedy little piggies, what with Christmas overeating coming … right?

Oh, and there is a sort-of-new product out as well – a mesh remake of our popular Pine Wreath with Candle – that a bunch of you mesh-only addicts asked for. More meshy goodness coming in the New Year.

So please pop by, check out the new store (your old landmark still works btw), and grab the gift and whatever else strikes you as needful ^.^

Be happy and stay safe.

-Hanaya- gifts and news!

We’re back!      Almost.

Exciting happenings in our real life have conspired to keep the -Hanaya- team busy over the last weeks, and likely will continue to do so for the next few months. Happy things, like plenty of international travel, an upcoming move to southern Germany, and most importantly as it relates to Second Life – more time spent on 3-d modelling.

That is not to say that we have been totally lazy in Second Life.
Some news:

The new -Hanaya- flagship store is complete, and will open soonish. We can’t wait to show it to you guys!

All that is left to do is to implement the vendor system, which we promised you guys ages ago. Finally, we will have proper gift cards, a redelivery terminal, an ability to do group discounts etc.

And speaking of groups – here is the May group gift for -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles VIPs.

Four Walls & Four Pines for Four Seasons from -Hanaya-

We are really excited to be part of the Four Walls Hunt – a hunt all about home and garden stuff. Founded by Valena Vacano of Casa de Smurf, hunters can expect to find lots of lovely things from well-known brands, as well as lesser known ones.

Star Party – a mesh star watching hunt gift from -Hanaya-

The Cold Winter Nights Hunt starts in less than a week, and the -Hanaya- team is very happy to be participating. As always, we are inspired by our real life activities – this time by star watching.

The cold, crisp nights of winter are perfect for grabbing a few friends, heading away from the city lights and setting up a telescope for some sky-watching. And to make finding objects in the sky easier, we use a telescope with a motorized mount, which is connected to a laptop. Using an application like Stellarium, it is easy to select an object on the monitor (like a star or planet), then pressing the telescope Go-to key to guide it to the object.

-HanayaMesh- Star Party Hunt Gift

-HanayaMesh- Star Party

To give our friends and customers a chance to do some star gazing in Second Life, we have put together a mesh star watching kit as a gift* for the Cold Winter Nights hunt. The set includes a telescope, as well as a laptop with cable, folding camp table and of course an astronomy reference book. The pieces (with the exception of the telescope) were handcrafted in our mesh workshop specifically for this project.

The set includes six built-in animations for simultaneous use by 3 avatars, to allow you and your friends to watch the sky, operate the laptop and stand around shivering, waiting for your turn. The animations are adjustable for height and rotation, and do not require poseballs. And yes, you can see the sky when you use the telescope!

The Cold Winter Nights Hunt starts on January 15, 2013 and runs until February 15th.
-Hanaya- is store number 13 and our hint is:

“Tiptoe through the tulips”

* Please note that all gifts in this hunt cost 10 L each.

 

-Hanaya- January Group Gift

The -Hanaya- team is back from a refreshing holiday break, ready for a great new year.
And to start the year off right, we bring you a cute little January 2013 group gift.

-HanayaMesh- Best Loved Fairy Tales

-Hanaya- Best Loved Fairytales (Winter) Group Gift

When you were little, did you ever imagine that you could shrink down and walk into the pages of your favourite fairy tale? Do you remember the wondrous illustrations of adorable little old-world cottages set in a clearing in the woods, with welcoming lights at the windows beckoning you to come inside?

This month’s group gift for the members of the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles in-world group is a whimsical tabletop scene* inspired by darling houses from fairy tales like Cendrillon, Tom Thumb the Little and Princezna se Zlatou Hvězdou.

-Hanaya- Best Loved Fairytales (Winter) is a lovingly created and textured blend of mesh and sculpted elements, which can be placed on an existing table, or used with its complementary driftwood stand. And don’t forget the ladder, so your littles can have access when you are sleeping.

The gift was sent out on the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles in-world group today (4 January 2013). If you missed yours, either get it from group notices or stop by our in-world store. The gift will remain available to group members in the Customer Service area until the end of January.

Have a lovely sparkly wintery-white and bright weekend!

* Decor item only, not intended as a livable house.
