A Little Bit Late…

Hello everyone! I know that here in the UK Rememberance day was on Friday 11th November, but I thought that I would do a quick post to remember all the soldiers who have fought for our country….


Here is Annabell and Paddock Buttercup showing their support.

Hotter than Ibiza?!

Hello everyone! I have returned to the blogosphere! I don’t know about anywhere else, but at the moment the place where I live in England is absolutely BOILING hot…. Apparently it is hotter than Ibiza!

Today I am bringing you my first ever Sylvanian photoshoot. I went out into the garden with Annabell Buttercup and took some pictures. Enjoy! πŸ™‚



My mum said she thinks this angel looks like it should be on a grave, but I think it looks cute in the garden.



Hey, how did you get up there? πŸ˜›


This is the second horseshoe that my dad has found in the garden while digging.


Well, I had a really good idea for a picture, but our photoshoot was sadly cut short because of a summer storm. Even though it is hot here, it is still raining (there’s some thunder and lightning too, and that makes the random downpours much more exciting!)

I have been nominated for quite a few tags/awards, and I am still participating in AAWC, so look out for more posts soon! And yes, I was participating in BIBPC but I have only entered one category. I just feel like before I have had a chance to find out what one category is, the next one has already come along…. And I’m not too great at photography! πŸ˜€

Annabell’s Chick

It was a bright and sunny morning in Bluebell Village, and Mrs Buttercup had gone outside to get the milk bottles from the doorstep. She saw her husband walking past… And she was surprised to see that he had six fluffy little chicks following him!


“Kids! Come and meet our new friends!” shouted Hornbull. The children came running downstairs and burst out of the front door.

“Wow dad! What are we going to do with them?” Paddock asked looking puzzled.

“Well, we are going to look after them, and then we will be able to have fresh eggs when they are older!” Hornbull replied. Daisy wasn’t so sure about her husband’s idea at first, but she was beginning to like the little bundles of fluff.


“Ooooh! This one likes me!” Annabell said as a little chick waddled up to her.


“Can he come up to my room?” she asked her parents. Mr and Mrs Buttercup looked uncertain.

“Well, I suppose so, but ONLY for one night.” her father told her. She picked up the little chick in her arms and brought him up the stairs carefully.

When she got to her bedroom, she plonked him down on the bed. Her brother looked on in surprise as she placed a hot mug of tea in front of the chick.


“Errrrr, I don’t think chicks drink tea.” he told his sister.

“Yes they do! Well, my one does.” she said defiantely.

“…And, by the way, his name is Bob.”

Gerard gets a new home

Hello everyone! As you have probably noticed, I haven’t bought any new Sylvanians for a while. What I am currently doing in my village is trying to make my current families larger through adoption….

Mr Mrs Buttercup opened the door and stepped into the warmth of the orphanage. There were children playing and laughing all around them.


“Hmmmm, dear, which child would you like?” Mr Buttercup asked.

“Well, I would quite like a little baby or toddler.” replied Mrs Buttercup.

“This pup looks like a fine little man!” Mr Buttercup said.

Gerard looked up at them.

“Awwww, yes I think we’ll have him.”


Gerard ran up to his new parents and gave his mum a big hug. They held onto his weeny little paws and walked home….


So, Gerard is now Gerard Buttercup! Yay πŸ™‚

Lent is here!

Hello everyone! As many of you will know, Lent started on Wednesday. Lent is the period before Easter, and lots of Christians give things up during Lent…


Mr. Buttercup is giving up sugar in his tea! Good luck Mr. Buttercup! πŸ™‚

Tell me in the comments what you are giving up!

Book Club: week 2

‘Good afternoon everyone!’ beamed Mrs Robinson ‘Welcome to another book club session! This week we read the first book in the ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ series. What did everyone think?’


They started with Ron Barker ‘Well, I thought it was really good, definitely better than the Hunger Games.’

‘I loved it too!’ chipped in Alfie Robinson.

‘Well, I know you liked it because you wouldn’t put it down to eat your dinner!’ Mrs Robinson said to her son.

‘I thought it was a really creative way to engage kids, by using something that they could relate to’ said Jessica Buckley intelligently.

‘So, here is your next book. Have a nice week full of reading!’ said Mrs Robninson, and they all said goodbye and went home.


Hope you enjoyed it!





Book Club: week 1

The children sat around the room, chattering excitedly. Mrs Robinson hushed them, and then spoke…

‘Hello children! Welcome to the first meeting of Bluebell village book club!’ Mrs Robinson said excitedly ‘So, this week, we read ‘The Hunger Games’. What did everyone think?’


‘Well,’ began Jessica Buckley, ‘I thought it was very good, but it is definitely better for older readers. There is quite a lot of violence!’

The group nodded in agreement.


‘What do you think, Lola?’

‘I really enjoyed this book, it was soooo good! I am now a huge Hunger Games fan! Katniss is justΒ  like me, we’re both really brave.’

‘Well, I actually didn’t think it was too great,’ Frances Robinson said much to the group’s surprise ‘It isn’t really my thing, I wouldn’t normally choose to read it. Plus I thought it was really depressing, and I like happy books!’

‘Well, everyone has their own opinion’ Mrs Robinson said ‘so, here is your next book, I hope you enjoy it! Oh, and I won’t forget the snacks next time!’


Hope you liked it. πŸ˜‰ You will have to wait until next week to see what they are reading….






Figure count

Hello everyone! I have recently gathered all of my Sylvanian figures together and counted them. Here they all are:


I currently have 39 figures in total. I might get some more soon, so that number will definitely rise. I would quite like a new family, maybe the border collie family to go with the twin babies.

And my favourite? Well, it would be very difficult for me to pick a favourite, but I would probably say Frances Robinson the red panda. πŸ™‚ She has come on lots of adventures and trips with me, usually in my pocket or my bag.

Frances just loves her little red dress - so warm and cosy, especially in winter!

That’s all for now, friends….
