I have been falling more and more in love with the standing/posable babies every day. There is just something about their tiny bodies, huge eyes, and little knitted outfits that are irresistible. I now know why there are so many accessories for these adorable babies. I never understood the point of the Tea Cups or the Ferris Wheel. I thought "why would these little babies have their own amusement park?!" but now I know why, because it's friggin' adorable, thats why. I would love to add a lot more of these beauties to my collection. I'd very much enjoy the Silk Cat baby, Buttercup Cat baby, and possibly the Lambrooke Sheep baby. They're next on my list. Sadly, I haven't any money to buy any more Sylvanians, at least not for a few months. Next accessory on my list is the Donut Stand and some patio furniture. I was hoping to have some patio furniture for my Sylvanians before 4th of July, so I could photograph them BBQing, and enjoying fireworks, but that will have to wait for next year.

Baby Patrick Deer wants so badly to be able to climb on the bed all by himself, but he is still too small. Thankfully he has his big brother, Pete, to help out! "Don't worry, Patrick," Pete says to his little brother, "One day you'll be big enough to climb up on your own. Until then, I'll help you." Little Patrick smiles at his big brother as he lifts him onto the bed. He is so glad to have such a wonderful brother who helps him out, shares with him, and looks after him.

I received my primrose nursery figures about two weeks ago, and I must say, they are amazing! I wasn't going to order them, but found them at a great price and I just couldn't resist! Now I find myself wanting to order the pre school so they will have a place to learn. Their pre school outfits are so tiny and adorable, they make it hard not to love them. They are a MUST for any collector. I find myself just admiring them a lot, and wanting to carry them around in my pocket. If I had the money, I'd purchase the pre school outfits for every one of my standing baby/toddlers. Sadly, neither of these babies have parents yet, but I'll be working on it. Actually, I don't think there are any parents for the Ivory Dogs; but I'll be looking out for them. I've had my eye on the Ivory Dogs (Spotty & Stella's Swimming Adventure) for some time now, but just haven't made the purchase yet as I always wind up finding another figure I'd rather order instead. And unfortunately, I am not made of money!

Make A Wish!

The women of the Macavity Cat Family woke up this morning and decided it was a beautiful day to take a walk through the park. Mrs. Macavity has been so busy since having twins, that she barely has time to take walks with her daughter, Anna Lucia, anymore. While walking thru the park and admiring nature, Anna Lucia spots something she's never noticed before. "What's that?!" she exclaims, running towards it. "It appears to be an old well." Mother says, "If you throw a penny in and make a wish, it might come true." Anna Lucia scrunches her nose, "I have a penny!... but it's the one father gave me this morning for candy... but I could WISH for candy!" Without thinking it over, Anna Lucia tosses her penny in, closes her eyes, and yells "I wish for candy!" But to her surprise, there was no candy when she opened her eyes. "Where's my candy?" she asks dissapointed. "Well honey, wishes don't happen immediately. Sometimes you have to wait a while." Mother explains. Anna Lucia sighs, "How long? Because the last time you said I had to wait a while for a little sister, I had to wait almost an entire year!"

Greeting The New Neighbor

Mrs. Slydale Fox Greets her new neighbor, and brings her wonderful daughter along! Ms. Snow Rabbit is not only new in town, but she is a new mother as well. Maybe Mrs. Slydale will have a few tips for her on how to raise such wonderful children! Ms. Snow Rabbit has been having some trouble unpacking in her new home, since her twins are crawling now and getting into so much mischief; so Mrs. Slydale fox has volunteered her husband and son to help her out. "My husband can help you move the furniture," Mrs. Slydale offers, "and I can watch the twins for you so you can get some things put away. It's the least I can do." Mrs. Slydale is such a wonderful neighbor!

It's A Start...

I've been dying for a way to show the world my Sylvanian collection. It's not a large collection, but I love it all the same. Each figure brings such joy to my heart. One day I hope to have a display case so everyone who walks into my house can enjoy my Sylvanians as much as I do. But for now, they sit in individual plastic bags, stored in plastic boxes until I take them out to photograph them, or just admire them. Everyone thinks I'm crazy. I'm a 26 year old mother and wife with a warped and sick sense or humor. Most things I say would be deemed "inappropriate" by others and accompanied by a dirty look. Yet, there is a gentle part of me who just wants to play with Sylvanians and not be judged. They truly make me smile and remind me of the great times I had playing with them as a child. Maybe that's why I love them so much. They bring back such carefree times in my life.
