My First Ever Post - Bluebell Woods

Yesterday evening I discovered some beautiful bluebells in the woods near the Ridgeway, a short drive from our house. I grabbed a bag of Sylvanian Families and my rather old camera, and set out trying to take some photos. A few came out quite nicely, but I cannot get the hang of the autofocus on my ancient Sony 5 mega-pixel camera! But here they are, on my first ever post on my first ever blog!

This is the Bramble Hedgehog family! They are probably my second-favourite family. My favourite family, of course, are the Dappledawn Fawn Rabbits.

The Underwood Badgers - the family are the current Flair version however the babies are Tomy. As they were one of my childhood families they have become very worn, particularly the babies :( However I think I may re-colour in the black bits with a permanent marker, but I am undecided whether this is a good idea.

The Buckley Red Deer family. Although I do love this family I would love the Moss Reindeer family as well, but it would be a bit over-obsessive! I do have all of the babies in this family but I couldn't fit the other two in. Both of these came out very fuzzy because of me trying to work out the silly autofocus >:-(

All of this took me almost 40 minutes as positioning Sylvanians on a narrow, mossy, bumpy fallen trunk is quite difficult! For my first attempt I think I did pretty well. At some stage in the future I also hope to get a new camera.


  1. Colouring in Sylvanians makes them look a lot better.I still need to colour and reflock about 60 of them....sigh

  2. The Underwood badger family are my favourite family ;) But mine are VERY worn, much more than yours!

    1. I love the Underwoods, they're just so cute and traditional:) I'm sure they're just loved, not worn ;) xx
