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….

We are totally unprepared, we don’t even have a sledge. I hope it snows even more tonight so that we get a day off school tomorrow. 😀

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!

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……

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.

…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…

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.

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?
