Hope you´re doing well!
It´s been a while since my last post. These past few months have been very busy and stressful. When life gets crazy, I usually lose my interest in Sylvanians to the point that the idea of giving up this hobby crossed my mind more than once. Fortunately, things seem to be improving and my motivation is coming back.
For the past five years, I´ve published a Christmas story or at least some Christmas pictures. This year, I wasn´t sure if I could keep up with "this tradition" but eventually, I gathered enough motivation to do it. I intended to have this post ready a few days before Christmas Day but finally I run out of time.
As in Spain Christmas celebrations have only just begun and they last until the 6th of January, I guess I´m still in time.
The scenes of this post ,except one of them, are not set up in Sweet Berry Valley but in the Main shopping Street in Town
Hope you like them!
The Main Shopping Street is usually bustling with activity all year round but at Christmas time it gets even busier.
Let´s meet some of the Sylvanians who live in Town. I guess, most of them must be doing their Christmas shopping, going for a walk along the festively decorated streets or enjoying a meal at a restaurant.
This glamorous celebrity couple has just enjoyed lunch at the restaurant and are going to continue with their Christmas shopping. She is an actress and he is a popular TV presenter in Sylvania.
Talking about famous Sylvanians, look who is just leaving the department store . No more no less than the most sought-after pianist in town! Lionel Grand!.He performs regularly at the Grand Department Store and the Delicious Restaurant in the evenings. I wonder who the gifts he bought are for. He is so reserved that ,despite being so popular, little is known about his private life.
Someone who is also famous in town for being in all the best fashion shows is Alicia Persis. She is a catwalk model who always wears the most fabulous outfits and shoes. It must be tricky to walk so stylishly in high heels along the cobbled streets of town.
Alicia Persis is a good friend of Stella Chocolate who works as a fashion designer. Some of her beautiful dresses are sold in the Grand Department Store and she also works at the clothing section helping customers choose the outfit that best suit them.
It was William Cinnamon, the department store manager´s son. He also works there and is always very kind to Stella. She thinks he is nice and regards him as a friend but I´m afraid William has stronger feelings for her.
Their triplets enjoy going to the department store. They have fun at the revolving door and if they are good kids they always get some chocolate or a sweet as a treat. Today they must have behaved very well since they got a candy cane each.
Little by little, the elegant and sophisticated style of this series won me over. Last Christmas, I got the tram as a gift. Shortly after, I found the Grand Department Store at a reduced price so I couldn´t resist. The details and engravings of this building are absolutely gorgeous.
The older sisters were also added to my collection little by little and last June my husband and my children got me the Delicious Restaurant for my birthday. I didn´t expect it at all and it was a great surprise.
Believe it or not, most of these sets and figures, were still boxed. It was high time to unbox them and that´s what I did.
I also made some crafts and decorations and I made an attempt to wrap up some of the figures with warm clothes.
