Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Hello everyone! As you all probably know, today is St. Patrick’s day. I love this day, because St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and most of my family are Irish. My Grandad was actually called Patrick. 🙂

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…

Taking down the Christmas decorations

Hello everyone! As some of you may know, today is the day when you are actually meant to take your Christmas decorations down. That is exactly what has been happening today in Bluebell village. Wilbur Robinson and Hornbull Buttercup have been busy putting everything away so that it is ready for next year. After all their hard work they were rewarded with hot cups of tea and a slice of cake-yum! Everyone in the village adores Crystal Babblebrook’s baked treats! She is an excellent cook.

There weren’t that many things to take down, just some teeny tiny paper chains and two Christmas trees. Bye decorations, see you next year!

Don’t forget to vote in the poll that is in my last post….

Byeeeeeeee!

Reading the summer issue of the Collector’s Club magazine in the caravan.

This was going to be my entry for a competition, but I didn’t email it in time! So yeah, the Buttercup family are just chilling on a bucket and spade, with some food…(random!)

This is Caldey Island, it is so cool! It is a monastic island off the coast of Tenby in South Wales. The picture above is the monastery, where the monks live.

This is a picture of Melody on Caldey Island. I won her in the arcade at the holiday park we were staying in. She is such a cute little doll, same size as my Sylvanians!

Hope you enjoyed the post! 🙂

2015 highlights

Hellooooo! It’s nearly 2016 here in the UK, only three and a half hours to go. This evening, I thought, ‘why don’t we have a little look back over the past year?’ So here we go……

There were some new faces.

I got runner up in the Sylvanian Collector’s club colouring competition.Yay! But I won the red panda family, so now I have two! Lol 🙂 The collector’s club also changed, and I am no longer a member 😦

In summer, Sienna joined the family.

We were crafting with Stuart the minion (I love that guy!)

…And it all ended with a wonderful Christmas!

The Sylvanians, the bears and the dolls are all very excited about the new year. There will be new Sylvanian products, and many more trips to Build a Bear Workshop. And I am super excited about the launch of American Girl ‘Lea Clark’ tomorrow (I think that her mini doll looks really cute!) I live in the UK and have never been to an AG store, so I will probably just watch videos of her launch on the youtube! 🙂

So, see you next year…..

Christmas Decorations 2015

I love Christmas, and I am very sad that this year’s fesive period is nearing an end. 😦 Today I thought that I would share with you some of my favourite decorations in our house this year…

IMG_00000427

First, we have a cute little nativity scene. The angel on the top usually falls off, I was quite pleased that I managed to balance her up there long enough to take a good photo!

Next, we have our sparkly mini Christmas tree in the kitchen. I made the angel on top, it was from a book of cut out Christmas decorations.

IMG_00000424

We have loads of wreaths in our house (too many), but this is my favourite one. It is made out of fabric and it has ribbns and buttons attatched to it. Snazzy!

And here it is, the Christmas tree! We don’t have a specific colour theme, we like to just put random ornaments and decorations on it. I kind of cut off the angel in this pic! Oops!

Those are some of my personal favourites, but we have lots more. What are your favourite deccorations?
