New for Summer Days @ -Hanaya-

I know that the stuff I sell in my Second Life store is often inspired by my real life, and today’s new releases are no exception.

Even though the weather in Europe has been rather gloomy and cool, my tomato plants are doing well. I check on them every morning, coffee in hand, inspecting the size of the little green blobs and drooling at the thought of toasted tomato sandwiches, salads with grilled tomatoes, and yes, fried green tomatoes with our Sunday morning bacon and eggs. Yumm!

-Hanaya- Charlie Brown’s Bagged Tomato

My better half offered up the name for our cute Bagged Tomato plant – and on hearing it, I instantly agreed. A juicy, shiny, perfectly ripe tomato hangs from a non-tomato vine, begging to be harvested.

Planted in a vertical bag planter, it will hardly take up any room and is a cute edible decor item that can be attached to a garden or house wall, or a fence. Or how about growing it inside, right in your kitchen?

Eight prims, including shadows and copy, modify permissions as always with our products.

-Hanaya- Picnic Table + Benches with Lantern *

I am a nature girl from way back, so camping and hanging around outside is my thing.

The -Hanaya- Picnic Table comes with 2 benches, and contains 6 synchronized couple cuddle animations (3 for guys and 3 for girls). The animations are fully adjustable and are menu-driven.  The camp lantern adds a bit of gentle light on summer evenings.

The Bagged Tomato and Picnic Table set are on display on the main floor of our in-world store, where they are available for purchase. Or if you prefer, buy in our web store on the Second Life Marketplace.

We are thrilled to announce that we are once again participating in Vintage Fair 2012. Lots of new stuff is currently in progress in our workshop and we can’t wait to show it to you guys!

The Vintage Fair starts on August 2nd (my real life birthday), and ends of August 29th. It promises to be a wonderful event, so please stay tuned for more information.

If you have stopped by our in-world store lately, you will have been greeted with a message about … ‘we are under construction, please excuse the mess’.
The mess is not over yet, but progress is being made.

First, we are installing a store teleport system, which will take you seamlessly to the 4 product areas:

  • Main Floor:                    Flowers + Plants
  • Second Floor:                Furniture Sets
  • Third Floor:                    Decor + Buildings
  • Outside at the rear:      Art Garden

Big thank you goes to my brother-in-law, Lance Corrimal, for scripting the system.

The customer service area on the main floor is currently being re-worked as well – to make room for our redelivery terminal and gift card system (coming soon I hope), and to tidy it up. We have also added lots of new plant life to decorate the gardens – look especially for the wonderfully detailed dragon flies near the creek.

Thanks for reading and have a happy weekend!

NEW! -Hanaya- Traditional Christmas Trees

It is December, one of my favourite months of the year. So let me talk about Christmas trees, since the primary reason for this post is just that. A brand new release from -Hanaya- to add to the thousands of pixel trees out there on the grid. But I happen to think this one is just a little bit special. Want to know why?

First, the new -Hanaya- Traditional Christmas Tree comes in 3 sizes to fit into most homes. And the best part is that those of you who are in the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles in-world group get the littlest one as this month’s group gift. Woo!

Second, all three sizes of the tree come in 2 rez options – normal rez that takes up lots of prims, and a temp rezzer version with a custom-written, low lag script, which only uses 1 prim on your parcel.

So, to describe the trees – they are sculpted pine trees with gorgeous glass ornaments of many shapes and colours. I also made a string of flashing lights and some garlands, and topped the whole thing with a shiny blown glass tree top. The tree sits in a wood tree stand and has a built-in shadow. All three sizes include a ‘Trim the Tree’ animation and give you and your friends or customers a box of ornaments to wear. A bare tree in a tree stand is also included in all three sizes, in case you want to hold off putting out the decorated one until it is closer to Christmas – like me.

The largest of the trees (image above) is 5.5 meters and includes a separate ladder with the ‘Trim the Tree’ animation and ornament box giver, so that you can get ornaments on the upper part of the tree. The Traditional Christmas Tree also has more ornaments like lighted candles and pewter bird ornaments, which are not included in the small version or the group gift version. That is me and our store tweeny Hana posing for the vendor pic 🙂

-Hanaya- Small Traditional Christmas Tree

The small version of our Traditional Christmas Tree is 4.5 meters high – sure to fit a standard-sized SL home, which usually have ceilings that are at least 5 meters high. The ornament giver and ‘Trim the Tree’ animation are included.

-Hanaya- December 2011 In-World Group Gift

The littlest of our traditional Christmas trees is 3 meters high, and is our gift to our customers that are part of the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles in-world group. The tree includes the ‘Trim the Tree’ animation and gives the ornament box like the 2 ‘for purchase’ versions.

-Hanaya- December 2011 Subscribo Gift

The box of Christmas decorations which can be used to trim the Traditional Christmas Tree is a gift to our customers who are part of the -Hanaya- Subscribe-O-Matic Newsgroup.

We hope that you will find room in your Second Life home for one of our Traditional Christmas Trees – one will be on display in our in-world store during the month of December. Or if you are feeling stressed and lazy, the purchase versions will be available on the Second Life Marketplace in the next few days.
