Christmas blessings

Merry Christmas to all! Peace on earth and goodwill to all men (...and women).

I hope you all had a lovely day, even if you don't celebrate Christmas. I had a delightful day this year, and as a bonus I got the Mulberry raccoon family! I am so in love with them all- I'm especially pleased that the brother and sister are from the taller moulds, as they can complete the class of older pupils at the Glen Fallow Community School. I know, I'm just that weird that I even organise class lists :oops:  

In other news, the wedding is drawing ever closer...

Wedding preparation

Adrian is getting measured up at Sybil's sewing shop. Stephanie is helping out too! There's so much to do... Sybil is overrun with tailoring requests, everyone wants a new outfit for the day!

Flashback to summer

Flashback to sunny days spent on the beach.

This picture was my sylvanian summer entry. I was initially disappointed I didn't win, but then I saw the winning entries and I was blown away! One day, I will win a sylvanian competition!

Also: BREAKING NEWS in Glen Fallow!
Adrian just proposed to his boyfriend, and Patrick accepted!! The wedding is set for the 31st of December this year. The whole village is busy getting ready!

Poor Kerri

Kerri Periwinkle just wants to frolic in the snow, but her mummy says it's too cold for a wee bunny like her. Poor Kerri!

NEW: Outback Koalas

My phenomenal best friend who moved back to Australia in 2013 sent me the Outback koala family as a Christmas present :') I was going to save them until the 25th, but then I was papering a room set for photo shoots and I needed a sparkling new (and willing) family to test it out :D I put them away again though, I promise!

So, introducing the Outback koalas, the newest family to arrive in Glen Fallow. They're currently residing in the hotel until a house becomes available.

Little Annabelle has already been enrolled into the Village nursery, and will begin her induction on Monday. She's very excited to meet some other critters her age!

Carissa recently gave birth to another little girl, but her name hasn't been decided yet. This happy couple would welcome any suggestions!

Unfortunately on the boat over to the Island of Rut, a suitcase fell on the daddy's head, and he can't remember his name! Can anyone remind him?

Primrose Creche Figure Set

December has arrived, and a typical Edinburgh windstorm is raging outside. However, the good news is that I am now going to dedicate my next few hours to improving this blog *yay!* .

First though, I believe there are some photos long overdue... (Over) two weeks ago the Primrose Creche Figure Set arrived in the post, and although I took photos I ran out of time to post them. So here they are, the much anticipated squadron of mischief makers; Alyssa Walnut, Hannah Periwinkle, Electra Macavity and Burl Timbertop.

New purchases

Just got the Primrose Creche figure set and the sandwiches set from SSK. As ever, I'm very impressed with the postage, because I only placed the order yesterday at 3pm :D
I'll post pictures tomorrow if I can, Thursday is the only weekday that I'm free during daylight hours *sigh*.

Current Project: School

My current project, one that's been planned for a little while, is to create the surroundings of St Francis' school and library. I'm using a giant cardboard tray, making the playground, an athletics track and the Nursery area. Very excited for when it's finished! Obviously I will try to post photos along the way ^.^;

New haul: photos

It came, it came, it came!
I had to go out in the soaking rain to retrieve it from reception, but no matter!
Sadly, because I had online lessons through the afternoon, and because Scotland sucks for natural light, I didn't manage to take any great pictures of my village with the new additions :( However, I did take a few snaps in the study, where the brightest light is. I promise I will get some classy shots, fit for your collectors' eyes :D (though probably not tomorrow, as I am climbing four munroes - yay!)
So, here we go. One at a time...

Fountain and Ornate Bench set

Literally every set I unwrapped today has exceeded my expectations. With this set, I was pleasantly surprised to find the bench and fountain were WAY bigger than I envisaged them! The bench is really lovely, and can comfortably fit two sitting adult figures. The fountain comes in two parts, the base and then the flowing water, which you just slot in. It looks gorgeous, and I love the slightly ethereal colour of the water. The set also comes with two magazines, one entitled "Herb Gardens" and the other "Herbal Remedies".

Chocolate Rabbit Baby & Cot set

In all honesty, I purchased this purely for the cot, which I needed for little Faye Buckley to sleep in. The reason I opted for this set was because you can't buy this blue-style cot separately, but boy am I glad I did! Little Creme is unbelievably adorable, I can't help but marvel at how clean she looks (which sadly won't last long in my dusty home :( damn you, dust)
The cot is really sweet, with a mattress and a little cover. The side comes down so that Creme can climb in herself.

Finally, there are two little drawers for Creme to keep her books in.

In fact, I love this set so much that I don't know if I can bear parting Creme from her beloved cot. Attachment problems on my part, or Creme's? :'(

Vegetable Garden set 
(Apologies in advance for poor quality images)

(This image includes items from the Family Garden set, 
and the seed box is a doll's house emporium item.)

Rupert will be happy tomorrow morning, when he wakes up, looks out his window and discovers... A vegetable garden! This set is truly fab, as it comes with a bed, a tap and hose, planters and a stand, a rake, a barrel and lots of yummy veg. The pumpkins are especially cool, both attached to one long strand of ivy-like leafery.
The vegetable bed and tap (watering can and fence not included)

The planters, and a barrel full of spare vegetables, already harvested. 
Look at the strawberries!

Deluxe TV set

This set was basically bought because I had money, and I wanted to get it to complete the Buckley living room. But, my goodness, when I got it out the box, it became one of my favourite items ever.

Looks pretty cool, yeah? But not amazing, you say? Watch this.

Twist this handle, as indicated, to the right, and....


The twisting dial, I don't know, it just made my day ^.^; 
The TV comes with 4 slides to slot in the top, but no batteries. Thank the lord we had two AAA's in the house!

And now, the cherry on the sylvanian metaphorical cake:

The Forest Nursery

Writing this I still can't quite believe I bought this! Not because it was something I dreamed of having, but because it was something I originally scorned at!
The reason: "That's stupid! I'd never let my toddler go to a nursery where they were encouraged to climb on the roof by a ladder made especially for their use."
But then I saw it on Amazon, for £12.50.
And I had money.
I bought it.

I'm not going to write too much here, because I think the pictures speak for themselves :D

Pretty cute, you can't deny. I love the tree doorway.

Close up, three little windows for the babies to peek through.

The detail just kills me.

This doorway goes onto the little stage, and is designed
for connecting the nursery with the double decker bus.
No, Niamh, don't do it...! 
So... tempted...

Ah, the roof I scoffed at. Who's laughing now? 

 The floor, because you totes need to see it.

And here it is: the Forest Nursery. Woe and behold, the power of advertising and greed is chanting my name, begging me to buy the Goldbache hamsters... For now I must resist. Mrs Renard is doing a smashing job for now.

Creme is on the swing ^.^;

(Try to ignore the quality on this one...)

They're fine, Niamh. Stop worrying.

See, Faye is up there too. 
"Noooo Faye come down right now!"

And I finish with this, the secret surprise (that I now ruin for you, mwahaha). Turn the piano round, flip up the back and - Hey presto! A blackboard for learning your ABC's!

If you came all the way, you may need to rethink your life values >.<;
Only joking. We all know that if we didn't have sylvanians, we'd be in pieces- or prison.
Lots of love :)

New haul!

My final haul bought with my first paycheck should be arriving today!
It was due yesterday but didn't arrive (oh, Amazon...) which was rather annoying since I waited like four weeks for it to be dispatched (I mean, seriously, if you're gonna evade your taxes, at least provide a satisfactory service). I'll post pictures when I open it, but I'll tell you what I'm getting now...
 - Forest nursery (bought for £12.50 ;))
 - Vegetable garden set (Rupert will be thrilled)
 - Fountain and ornate bench
 - Chocolate rabbit baby and bed
 - Deluxe TV set =^.^=;

Super excited! (^_^;)


Update: IT  ARRIVED! Pictures to come soon xx

Finally I have made the effort to work out how to use blogger, and here is my new blog, (almost) up and running. I hope to catalogue my collection as well as post some stories, but please bear with me as I fit this in around school and my (rather minimal :'D) social life! xx
