This morning, I woke up to the sound of birds chirping in our garden. Not just any birds, but blackbirds making sounds of spring. So this seems a perfect day to tell you guys about a new product, the -Hanaya- Spring Garden Collection. -Hanaya- Spring Garden Dining Set The collection, brand new for 2015, is 100% mesh and has a low land impact. The Spring Garden Dining Set consists of a glass table, chairs, matching place settings and a vase with carnations. The set is also available as separate components. -Hanaya- Spring Garden Chairs The Spring Garden Chairs have 2 types of upholstery, weigh in at a land impact of 2 PE and have 8 menu-driven animations (chat, eat, drink and full tummy for girls and guys). Some of the animations offer attachable mesh props when given permission. -Hanaya- Spring Garden Glass Table We thought that a glass topped table would fit well with the lightness of spring.
The -Hanaya- Spring Garden Glass Table is 2 li, and is sized for 4 avatars to sit at it.… Read the rest-Hanaya- Spring Garden Dining Set

-Hanaya- Budding Forsythia Branches

One of my favourite real life February activities is to prune our forsythia shrubs and bring the branches indoors to bring them to flower. It is a sure sign that spring can’t be far behind. The -Hanaya- Budding Forsythia Branches are set in a simple vase with a spring-feeling motif. The arrangement is provided at a height of 1.8 meters, with a land impact of only 1 PE. It is mod, copy so you can make it bigger if you wish, but land impact will increase with size. -Hanaya- Budding Forsythia Branches [mesh]The arrangmement is available on the Second Life Marketplace, as well as at -Hanaya- in-world store, where it is currently on display. If purchased in-world, it is eligible for our VIP group members discount.

NEW -Hanaya- Cottage Hummingbird Feeder

As we wait for the winter to release it’s grip on us, I can’t help it but to remember summer days at my parents cottage in south-eastern Quebec. I have great memories of weekends there –  swimming, canoeing and mushrooming in the forest. But the best memory is of lazying around on a lawn chair, watching the activity at the hummingbird feeder. My mom made new syrup to fill the feeder every morning and by evening, it was always empty. Many times, there were more than 10 hummingbirds fighting to get their turn.
So I made one for Second Life .. to bring summer sooner. -Hanaya- Cottage Humming Bird Feeder [mesh]The feeder itself is meticulously constructed and textured, and includes 4 flower feeding
stations. It is suspended from a wrought iron bracket with an aged copper chain, and includes a post to stand it in your garden. The whole set is provided as a linked mesh object which has a Land Impact of 10 PE. If you like, you can separate the post and use the feeder on it’s own to suspend from a tree branch.… Read the rest-Hanaya- Cottage Humming Bird Feeder [mesh]

Today, we have a brand new release for you – the Muskoka Couples Cuddle Bed with texture change menu and bedding that changes from a messy bed to a nice tidy one. The bed has a land impact of 14 PE and has 28 animations – 14 synced couple animations and 14 single ones, which are all accessed via a menu (no poseballs). The bed also rezzes mesh props.

As well, the menu allows you to use the bed either in the Daytime mode (the duvet is made up and tidy). In Nightime mode, the duvet disappears and a messy blanket is shown instead. There are two versions of the bed provided. One lets you select each piece of the wood and bedding separately to change the material. The other has 5 themes as in the image above. Matching night tables with texture change menu to match the bed are also available. A display demo model is at -Hanaya- in-world store, and will be on the Second Life Marketplace shortly.… Read the rest-Hanaya- Muskoka Couples Cuddle Bed

-Hanaya- Apple Bobbing Contest

With autumn in the air, thoughts turn to fall activities such as raking and collecting leaves, carving gourds and pumpkins and decorating our homes and gardens. I love garden decor – but I really really get excited when the decor is not just a static thing, when it is fun and has a purpose too. That is why the -Hanaya- team got together to bring you the Apple Bobbing Contest. No, you don’t win anything, other than bragging rights. Watch our 2.5 minute video to see it in action in HD on YouTube. How it works: The custom script in the piece allows for 2 avatar to sit on the apple barrel, and compete to see who will get the most apples first. The first avatar sits, and waits for a second person to join. Once both are sitting, they will start to bob for apples. The time it takes to grab an apple is random. And who gets more apples is random as well – there is no skill, nor is there any prize, other than your right to do a victory dance. The first avatar to get three apples wins the contest.… Read the rest-Hanaya- Apple Bobbing Contest FOR SALE

Lessons Learned @ Home and Garden Expo

As some of you know I was planning to be in this year’s Second Life Home and Garden Expo. And I was really looking forward to it too. Not just because I like making the kind of things that will be on sale there, but also because it benefits a cause that I am passionate about, since I am a cancer survivor. To make it short; I won’t be there. Here’s why: I had bought some full perm mesh farm animals from a store called Just Animals on the Second Life Marketplace and I had used them in a product which was to be part of the Gatcha @ Expo program to benefit Relay for Life. It turns out that it is possible that the original source of these full perm meshes may be a service called Turbosquid, where full perm meshes are sold for dollars. The first I heard of Turbosquid, is when a coalesced object of more than 1300 prims was returned to my Lost and Found folder, immediately followed by being ejected and banned from the Expo sims without notice. I was really upset – who wouldn’t be.… Read the rest-Hanaya- Home and Garden Expo

My Little Farm Gatcha – the sounds and sights of the 80′s. Inspired by childhood memories and a rememberance of many happy hours playing farm. -Hanaya- brings you the My Little Farm collection.
