If I don’t do this now, I’ll probably never get around to doing this so bear with me, folks. I’m sure my Sylvanian friends will enjoy this; we are, after all, great admirers of each other’s collections. But for those of you who find Sylvanians a tad too cute or too childish, go ahead and skip this post. I won’t hate you for it. 🙂
Warning: this post is picture heavy.
I use this journal as an online log of Sylvanian collections. I bring home quite a few items whenever I get the chance to travel. Since my husband is a very efficient traveler, A♥ does the remarkable sacrifice of bringing an almost empty suitcase or two, which he then fills with my Sylvanians. Fortunately, Sylvanians aren’t all that heavy and I can fit quite a few in his suitcases. The bigger ones, I handcarry all the way home, like the Beauty Salon or the latest, Berry Grove School.
So here is an update of what’s new and what’s been added since I last updated my collection.
From Takashimaya- 1st visit
The Conservatory/Extension home for House with Lights (Beechwood Hall)- on sale!
Garden Barbecue Set with Maurice Chantilly
Baby Carry Cases
Tailbury father/brother/sister at home sets- to bring joy to my lonely mother
Fawn Rabbit twins (but I forgot to buy the family! Grrr!)
From OG Chinatown
Camping with Esme Chantilly (Now, Maurice has family.)
Second set of the Keats cats, my favorites- NOT gonna open this!
The Flair Periwinkes (I got this because I only have the EU family from playsets. Sheesh! Talk about being OC!)
The Flair Slydales (also a second set)
Oh, I never thought I’d give in to the deBurgs! But I got a Pinglu igloo recently and I wanted to make a diorama of the igloo with penguins. Plus, you’ve got to admit, penguin babies are cute!
Ornate garden table and chairs
From BHG Bugis
Here I wised up and started taking group shots of things I got. Either that or I was just getting darn lazy!
The Beautician set (also a second set)- I got this because I wanted Antonio Patches to have an assistant at the Beauty Salon.
Ornate garden set- to go with the tables and chairs
JP nursery babies in uniform- too cute! I should have gotten another set to keep!
JP red deer twins and single baby- I forgot I had babies, heehee! But it’s okay; they are wearing different clothes from the ones I already have. (Excuses of the Sylvanian-obsessed)
JP chihuahua baby in light blue
From Robinsons Raffles City
Berry Grove School- heck, YEAH!
JP camping set
JP Petite Mother- she wears a different dress and I’m a sucker for dresses. 🙂
From Takashimaya- 2nd visit
Baby Penguin- he’s so cute! And what’s up with the hot water bottle?
Brass bed- this looks like the bed I had when I was a young woman in my parents’ home (read: spoiled)
From Robinsons Raffles City- 2nd visit
Ornate Bench and Fountain set- getting all the green stuff I can
JP School Play set- again, this is an afterthought but since I got the pumpkin carriage recently, I thought I could do a story featuring them.
Baby Fast Food Court- wala lang, they’re just cute!
JP Red Family Car- my husband insisted on this and I am glad he did. “Collectors must collect… everything!” I can still hear him saying. 🙂
I’ve actually gone as far as unboxing the figures and putting them in individual ziplock bags. I hope to be able to set the dioramas soon and catch up on photography.
Thanks for looking, friends, and have a happy Sylvanian day!
