TONS of New Releases @ -Hanaya-

Your personal elf, Moriko Inshan, has been hard at work making Christmassy + wintery things in her North Pole workshop. Now  the workshop is decorated, and open to the public – yay!

When you arrive at -Hanaya- in-world  location, just follow the signs to the garden behind the main store.

All new items are also available at this year’s SL Christmas Expo.

-Hanaya- Christmas Shop 2012

The Christmas shop has demos of all our new releases for you to try, along with our favourite Christmas and winter things all in one cute place. Feel free to linger and take some pics in the garden.

-Hanaya- Old Fashioned Christmas Tree (Texture Change)

The first thing to try is our Old Fashioned Christmas Tree – click the tree to bring up the texture change menu to alternate between a light and dark wood finish on the wooden angel tree topper. Or change the textures on the tree skirt. The menu also contains Access Control, so you can decide who can play with your tree.

Please note that all elements of the tree (except the candles) are mesh, so if you increase the size, the land impact will increase accordingly.

-Hanaya- On Frozen Pond Picnic Set

I am Canadian, so I love hanging outside in cold snowy weather. For those of you who like that as well, we have 2 new products in our On Frozen Pond collection.

First is the On Frozen Pond Picnic Set – a mesh table and benches with 4 menu-driven single animations that seats up to four people. My fave animation is the one that gives you hot steamy coffee. Or click the pile of mesh snowballs on the table to get a throwable snowball. Just wear it, go into mouselook, aim at your friends, throw and watch it go SPLAT!

-Hanaya- On Frozen Pond Bench

Another part of the On Frozen Pond collection is a mesh park bench embellished with sculpted elements like frozen ivy leaves, snowy branches and icicles. The bench contains 6 menu-driven, adjustable unisex animations and seats either 1 or 2 avatars.

-Hanaya- Wintery Driftwood Birdbath

In response to customer queries, our Driftwood Birdbath is now available in a wintery version. With it’s frosty ivy leaves and icicles, it will provide much needed drinks to your feathered friends throughout the winter. And birds appreciate a birdbath in winter, since they do not have to waste energy on melting snow to drink.

We have packaged up some of the new releases into one big set, and have placed them into a one-of-a-kind wintery scene, jam packed full of goodies, many of which are hand-crafted mesh created in our workshop for this project.

The set includes the following, some of which are mesh and some sculpted:

  • an ice base with a watery hole includes 3 fun animations and frozen grass
  • a ricketty fence frames the frozen pond area, casting shadow on the ice
  • a clump of 5 snowy pine trees in a snow drift form a wintery backdrop
  • gently glowing, a park light is graced with frozen ivy and a festive red bow
  • bare deciduous tree with bird feeder, frozen boulders + a cardinal that sings
  • Bark + Driftwood Deer (Snowy)
  • On Frozen Pond Picnic Set (see above for detail)
  • Wintery Driftwood Birdbath (see above for detail)

All of the new releases in this blog post are available for demoing and purchasing at -Hanaya- Christmas Shop, as well as at this year’s SL Christmas Expo. We are located on Xmas Expo 1.

Second Life Marketplace availability in a few days, as time permits.

With Love, Again hunt

-Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles is excited to be part of the With Love, Again Hunt, organized by Keira Seerose of CHIC Management SL. The idea behind this hunt is that it is a way to say thank you to our customers who have supported us throughout the year. Each of the 100 participating stores have hidden a hunt gift, which  is 10L. The gifts have a stated value of no less than 400 L. What a great way to say thank you.

Our gift is a snow and icicle covered greenhouse, complete with a log burning stove and benches for all your pampered plants. And yes, they are sculpted icicles, not flat texture prims 🙂

 -Hanaya- Canadian Cedar Greehouse (Winter)

The hunt starts today and runs until January 6, 2012.
We are store number 92, and our hint is:

Look for a place where even queens, presidents and the Dalai Lama go alone.

The greenhouse is on display at our store, so you can see it before you grab it. Have fun hunting!

St. Lawrence Stone Gazebo (Winter)

Winter has arrived at the store and overnight, our gazebo has acquired a new white snowy hat. Currently on display the -Hanaya- inworld store, the winter version of the St. Lawrence Stone Gazebo is charmingly clad in caps of snow on the roof top. Snow drifts across the floor and icicles hang from the eavestroughs and timbers.

-Hanaya- St. Lawrence Stone Gazebo (Winter)

The winter version of the gazebo is now available for purchase at -Hanaya- inworld, as well as on the Second Life Marketplace.

The winter landscaping of the store grounds is almost complete as well, so we hope you stop by and enjoy the scenery.
