A little sad, so here's some more Sylvanian Families!

My Sylvania-craze is going strong. Haha! I've recently join the premium membership of the Sylvanian Families Club in Japan and I'm considering joining the UK one, too... But I'm not sure if it will be beneficial. On top of that, I've even been planning to visit the Sylvanian Village at Grinpa. And that's where the sad part comes in... I was planning to go this Thursday, a national holiday, and the park is closed. scrap that, it'a open!  ;( I don't know why I didn't think of that before I started planning and now I'm just disappointed... Oh well, there should be a next time!

In order to appease myself (haha), I took photos of my little Sylvanians. From the last blog to this one, my collection has grown quite a bit! But, that's for another post. Please enjoy my photos!

I have quite a few new residents--one of them being Patricia Chocolate, the Chocolate Rabbit grandmother.

Patricia took her granddaughter, Freya to the Buttercups' for a little afternoon gossip and barbecue.

Bessie is a also relatively new to the town, moving in a couple of weeks back. She thinks the villagers are all very kind!

Where's the meat? I thought this was barbecue! But then again, that might be quite inappropriate in this world, eh? ; 3 ;

Freya gives us a little wave! Hi Freya!

Inside the lodge, Rhys Chocolate is seated in a very comfortable-looking couch.

Looks like the men are having a little bit of afternoon gossip as well. Look at cute Angus Buttercup holding on to the pillow!

Oh, what a lovely afternoon!

I'm sure everyone is enjoying. :)

Until next time!

My Sylvanian Kitchen

I think eventually, I'll have to rename my figures and create a backstory for a town and all that... But for now, I want to share with you a newly opened restaurant in my village! ^^

The Sylvanian Kitchen set is actually a long-retired item that was exclusively released in Japan... I obtained it yesterday along with another retired figure, Spencer Maces, a cute little mouse! Yes, I've gone to these waters... I'm doing the I-want-retired-items thing. Someone help me.; 3 ;

My beautiful restaurant!

Of course, I'm still doing a lot of customizing and DIYs. In this picture, you can see a couple of flower beds and some decorative flower arrangements.

Cute Spencer! He is now the proud owner of this little shop.

Seen in the picture above, I have some orange roses and very poorly done wine bottles. I don't have an oven to bake clay with so I can't do polymer clay crafts. T_T

The stove on the side is a piece from a retired kitchen set. The oven that comes with the restaurant is missing. ;( I made the goblet holder just over the stove and the pasta bottles.

The first customers are no other than my lovely Buckley Red Deer couple. Look at them, aren't they adorable? ; 3 ;

I also opted to cover the tables with this cute fabric I found! I think it gave the restaurant a more homey atmosphere. Hehe.

I know I'm indulging quite a bit with this new hobby... but I can't help it. TT_TT Plus, I would really be busier from next month as I'm going to start a new job and that means I would be spending less time doing all these crafting! But I'm glad. It's going to be a new adventure. (*^^*)

Well, that's about it! I hope you guys are finding these dioramas a welcome escape from reality! Haha. See you next time!

xoxo,
Jona
