A New Arrival

A special, rare character has come a long way to join life at Willowtree Gully. Stilton Bouquet!

Stilton appeared on the number 17 bus one day and took the whole village by surprise! He had heard tale of the friendly and charming village of Willowtree Gully and decided to make it his home.

Sylvanian JP Skunk Stilton
Stilton has a very friendly and laid-back nature and it didn’t take him long to make firm friends with all of the families in the gully. The only hesitant villager is Hatty Huckleberry, who reports that her over-developed sense of smell may be an issue….

For now he whiles his days away busking near the fish pond in the village square, but whispered rumours are that he wants to start up the legendary Forest Concert Band again.

** Stilton is a rare early edition Japanese Skunk (with the white stripe down his tail). I really love him and I would looove to find the rest of Stilton’s family one day but I don’t like my chances of that so for now he’s a bachelor. You can see in this last photo the fishpond I made using AshMimi’s tutorial. Lots of fun and was my first time experimenting with resin! And my trombone which I was so happy to find too!



New bookshelf!

My husband is a terrible, wonderful enabler. I blame him for this. 😂❤️ This is bookshelf number 4. 😬

Unboxing Japanese Nursery Set

I have a thing for babies in costumes and when I saw this gorgeous Japanese nursery set I knew I had to have it! I’m not sure if it’s rare or discontinued but it seemed difficult to track down. It eventually came up on Japan Yahoo at a reasonable price and I thought I’d just share pics of the unboxing. 🙂

It is a very gorgeous set with all the essentials the babies need for their day at nursery (bags, shoes, hats, lunch) as well as some dress up costumes and musical instruments. 

All dressed up and ready to play. 🙂 Now Willowtree Gully just needs to build a nursery for the poor tykes to attend!! (I haven’t been able to decide which nursery I want for the village so I’m stuck in analysis paralysis at the moment). 


A Good Day For Deliveries!

Today was a good day for deliveries!! Just what I needed on a Monday. 😊❤️😍


I love this family (much more than I originally thought I did) but it is going to bother me no end that Dad has different hands to the rest of his family. This situation must be fixed! Hehe.


Looooove these two so much! I need to figure out how to fix the wonky sticker on the radio without breaking it. It bothers me.


Yaaaay! These grandparents are much bigger than I expected. I thought they’d be the same size as the timbertop grandparents but they’re much bigger! Can’t wait to unbox.


My Renard family turn out to be in absolutely immaculate condition. It’s like they’ve never seen the light of day!


An absolutely perfect, darling wildwood baby and a basket of toys (I only had a sad faded baby til now). Love.

Reading back I see how perfectionist I appear haha. Oh well. I can’t fight it

Til next time!
