Thank you to all my lovely family and friends who helped celebrate my birthday this year - I had a great time, plus I was very spoilt! I received some wonderful Sylvanian Families related gifts that I would like to show you:
Macadamia Grove is excited to welcome the Woolly Alpaca family, and the Grunt Pig family!! I am very pleased to have received two sets of the alpacas, as I want to make the extra set of parents into custom grandparents, and the extra girl into a brother (what is with the lack of boys in the new Sylvanian Families sets??)
The Grunts were bought second hand (they are a retired family), so I feel very lucky to have got the rare triplets as well! Constance seems to have abandoned her dress for a random pair of green overalls, and I'm not sure they are really her, so Caitlyn is in the middle of making her a dress (this will be part of my Mothers Day present). No doubt the green overalls will be appreciated by someone else in the village!
Monsieur & Madame Chocolat (aka the Chocolate Rabbit grandparents) will be residing in Town - I am very excited to have them, as I have Plans, especially for the grandfather and his marvellous moustaches... stay tuned...
The Japanese furniture sets were a lovely surprise from some family members who visited Japan earlier this year. The lounge room set is awesome, as the fabric on the seats can be easily changed, making this set a very easily personalised one.
And last but not least, a beautiful home-made dress from Caitlyn - here is a picture of the alpaca girl modelling it (although it is actually destined to belong to Sarah Patches).
I will be updating my Meet The Families page to include all the new arrivals soon, but I want to make clothes for some of them first. There are also big changes afoot for our permanent display setup, so stay tuned - it's all very exciting!
