Busy Supermarket

 One of the presents we got for Christmas was the Supermarket. Got to say I am very impressed with this one, the attention to detail on all the accessories is amazing. I love the drink cans they even have little ring pulls, so cute. We of course couldn't wait to do a little scene...

It's a busy day in the Sylvanian Supermarket. Bert and Joyce are busy stocking up ready for the new years eve rush.

Christmas Scenes

Sorry I haven't been able to post on here much, I can't seem to get the blogger app to work fully on my phone so I will do a whole load of posts now whilst I am using the laptop at work :) Here is a couple of my final winter scenes, I didn't get to do a Christmas day post that's something for next year.

The big day is almost here, Mae Grunt & Savannah Trunk have gone to surprise Kate Periwinkle with Christmas gifts. 'Oh what a lovely surprise, do come in before you get chilly, I'll get the kettle on'. 

The chocolate rabbit family are having a Christmas eve party with lots of lovely food and drink. 'We can't wait for Christmas Day, it's the most wonderful day of the year'.  
More coming this way soon :)

Sylvanian Christmas

We had such a fabulous Christmas and we're overwhelmed at how many Sylvanians we were bought for Christmas. I think we have doubled our collection overnight!
We are off to ikea on the weekend so we can rearrange our lounge to fit all these in! I've now wallpapered cosy cottage and beechwood hall just got to put together the toy shop, cedar terrace and the seaside restaurant. My daughter had quite a bit of money saved up so we nipped out and now we have the sheep family, hamsters and golden labrador's.

Lots of new scenes to share with you soon as I can get on the laptop, this mobile version is a bit pants!

Winter Fun

Sorry I haven't been able to post anything for a while. It's been crazy busy at work and what with preparing for Christmas I've not had any time to play :( I will be back to creating scenes as soon as Christmas arrives though...we will definitely have some new things to play with :) 
I forgot to add the large scene of the Persis Cat Family in the winter snow so here it is..
'Today we took a trip to the lakeside in the snow. Mum went skiing, Dad was on the Skidoo and Nolly went sledging. I'm still practicing my ice skating but I do keep falling over!'

Tree Decorating

 I thought it was about time I did some indoor Christmas scenes. I managed to get a few little decorations for my Sylvanians so here is my first. The Periwinkles are getting their lounge ready for Christmas. Oliver is busy writing out his Christmas cards for all his friends at school.
Kate and Rebecca Periwinkle are decorating the Christmas tree ready for the festive season. 'Just one more bauble to go mummy'.
 'We love the holiday season and cosy nights in front of the warm fire. Only nine more sleeps until Santa is coming'

Sadie on Skates

It's the second to last Saturday til Christmas woopee I can't wait! I hope Santa is going to bring us some more Sylvanian friends. Today I have a little ice skating scene to share with you. I just love the sort of worried face she has, I can sympathise though I would be terrified on ice skates!
 Sadie Persis is trying out her new skates for the first time.
 'I'm so nervous I hope I don't fall over, the ice is so cold'.

Daphne's Bike Ride

 I have another lovely scene to share with you. It might seem a bit summery but it is always sunny in Primrose Valley so that's ok! I will be posting some winter scenes very soon so watch this space.

Daphne Keats & Freya Chocolate decided to take the twins out for a ride in the park.
'It's such a lovely day for a bike ride, wave to Richard E Grunt children he's busy gardening.'

Ironing Time

At the weekend I visited my favourite shop in the world - of course it's the Sylvanian Shop in London aka SSK. I got a few bits and pieces and some bits for my girls for Christmas. Ovbiously I pointed out to my other half all the ones that I 'need' too! One of the sets I bought was the twin washing machine set, so here is a little scene I did last night...
and a close up...
Teri Chocolate has had a busy day catching up on the housework whilst the little ones are at school. 
'I best get on with all this ironing before the school run'.

Woodland Trip

I always get quite excited when I find new things that can be used in my Sylvanian scenes. I went to our The Range the other day and was looking in the pet section when I came across some drift wood in different shapes. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it, I thought I could use it in a woodland scene! They also do some ruins and rocks too so might get those soon too. Here is my first woodland scene with driftwood :)

The boys decided to take a trip to the woods today. 'We have found an awesome old tree to climb, first one that climbs to the top is the winner!'

Poorly Natalie Marlowe

I've been trying to ppost this for days now but naughty blogger wouldn't let me upload pictures so here is hoping this is going to work now! One of my favourites at the moment is the Ambulance. I wanted this one for a while so I was so happy when I managed to get it! I have been itching to create a little scene with it for a while but work and other things have always got in the way.
Natalie Marlowe hasn't been feeling too well so Thomas Nightingale is taking her to hospital in the ambulance just to be on the safe side
We hope you are feeling better soon Natalie.

Gift Wrap

Just had to share this wonderful find.... Sylvanian Wrapping Paper! This has to be without a doubt the best wrapping paper in the world ever. I wrapped many of my daughters presents up in this and now I am thinking I want my Christmas presents wrapped up in it... ooo I hope my better half gets me some Sylvanians! I have given him my list already so fingers crossed.
Just in case you are wondering where to get this pretty paper from we got it from the Sylvanian London Shop. It is amazing a whole shop just for Sylvanians. We are hoping to go back a week on Sunday hopefully if not I may have to call up and order loads of things.

Sports Day

Hello :)
It's been a busy day in Primrose Valley. Today is the Sylvanians Sports Day which they have all been looking forward to for many months. 

Zoe Barker has had a busy morning in the souvenir shop.
 ...and they're off! Ron Barker is in the lead in the sack race with Maria Buckley close behind!
The boys are getting ready to compete in the Javelin contest, be careful boys!

My girls and I had a fabulous day on Sunday as it was 'Sylvanian Day' which means we get to play with Sylvanians all day long! As Jasmine had lots for her birthday this week we couldn't wait to get them out and create little scenes with them.

Courtyard Restaurant

 I just had to share one our latest purchases - The Courtyard Restaurant. It did cost quite a bit (why do I always get in bidding wars and have to win!?) but then we did get everything you see pictured, the house, furniture, all the figures and accessories, in the original box too.
 I think this has to be one of my favourite buildings so far, I love it's a restaurant out the front and a house at the back. Now we just have to decide which family is going to live in the house bit.

Bedtime Maria

 We have finally had a chance to set up a scene with the Buckley Red Deer family, I adore these think the mum is my favourite - just lover her dress!
'Come on now Maria it's bedtime, you best get changed into your pajamas' said Mummy Buckley.

By The Fireplace

Last week my other half bought us girls the Luxury Living Room Set. We so desperately need more furniture sets for all our houses and this one is a real beauty. I love that the fireplace lights up too.
"It's starting to get a little chilly in Primrose Valley so the Chocolate family have started to put the open fire on. This should get things warmed up for these chilly evening"

Karen Hazelwood Washing Day

I just thought I would share one of my other new sets that we bought whilst in London. This is Karen Hazelwood being a good housewife and hanging out all the washing to dry. Something about this set just screamed cute to me - I absolutely adore it. I think I will have to invest in some more mice me thinks!

Bathing Baby Trunk

At the end of October during half term week we were able to take the girls to London. We of course had to visit none other than the Sylvanian Families Shop in London. It was so worth the visit and will definitely be going back when we can. I love that they have some of the older sets and not just the current ones. We came out with several huge bags, I think it was 18 or 19 sets in total! One of the sets was the Trunk Family, I had been after this one for a little while so naturally couldn't wait to create our first little scene.
These elephants are just the cutest and I can see them fast becoming one of my favourite families of all time. I just love their cute little faces.

Autumn in the Park

Just thought I would share some of the first scenes we created last month.
This is our very first 'Autumn' scene at the park with the Honey Bears. We created all the bits in the diorama ourselves aside from the fountain & bench of course. I will take a few pictures of our diorama building that we have done, really pleased with what we have done so far. Jasmine and I loved collecting the leaves, drying them and cutting them up into 'Sylvanian sized' pieces.

About Me

About Me;

My name is Kitty and I am a 28 year old business owner, designer, mother, fiancee and Sylvanian crazy nutter!! In September 2015 my Sylvanian Families obsession began to the extreme level! We had already got a few Sylvanians in our house but little did I know that this was going to be a huge obsession that would take over the entire house! I had Sylvanians when I was younger and LOVED them. I wish I had kept them all now as I had many of the originals including various houses, harvester restaurant, mole family & many more.

Collecting Sylvanian Families is great fun as it means me and my youngest daughter Jasmine can do something together that combines fun, collecting and of course shopping! Together we are both enjoying setting up little scenes for them all, creating dioramas and taking pictures of them all.

My blog is our collecting journey, stories, bargain finds and everything Sylvanian related really!

Would love to make some new friends who also love Sylvanians, so please do get in touch :)
