Starting to get the sky in and some grass! :D Will be doing the inside sides aswell, just doing backs until I make sure I have enough fabric :)
Wow it's been a LONG time since I updated! We had to put a hold on the display quite a few times, and therefor the buying aswell. A tragedy happened where I live, one of the 2 stores that sell Sylvanian Familes, burnt down :( It was so sad, so many toys! It was arsan, a terrible thing to do. Bridges Bros it was called. They managed to keep the facade in tact at least but the man who did it has been charged.

Last night I found out that Myer here in Hobart (Tasmania, Australia) sells them now~! How awesome ^^ Went to check them out, see what they had, and we ended up walking out with just a few things hehe ;D
Photos of the display in store :) We got the Swan Lake Ride, Popcorn Stand, Baby Cart Ride, and some more. Will do a photo of the haul soon :) Definitely before I open them xD
The shelving still looks quite bare compared to last time. It has been all placed out (on the shelves) but the front small tables display area isn't quite done. We managed to find these cute little rabbit green fuzzy figures at Habitat at Easter time. They look just like bunny hedges! So they'll be used as our town center statue type things :)
Sorry for the random stuff in that photo xD It was mainly just a reference photo to see where stuff is placed. Its not tidy yet, or had the grass / sky fully put in, just the cardboard under-area :S
We're renovating! We moved the collection shelves downstairs into the new converted double-garage-turned-awesome-tv/games-and-pc-room (2 very large rooms), so it gets the best lighting :D Ignore the weird sheet, its just covering 2 shelves we won't be using as it just has blank cd/dvds stored there, and the other side is where the top of the back of the PC is. Don't want it blowing on Sylvanians!
Its pretty bare at the moment, all the furniture came down tonight, sitting in big fabric boxes! They had all been boxed in plastic boxes / workplace styled boxes for about a year. We had a lot going on (with the Reno) and didn't want to damage them. Families, furniture, accessories, the BIG roll of sky and grass fabric, and anything else you can imagine for a Sylvanian village!
This blog is for updates on our collection and anything sylvanian hehe.
