Parcels from Ayrell and Drora

Dear readers, 

This is your favourite little Riversider Biwubear named Fudge presenting to you more of the wonderful christmas presents we received from friends in blogland.

But, first of all I need to correct my Mommy, who in our last post wrote that the little blue goblin she received from Birgit was made by Georgia Marfels. Unfortunately, she made a mistake. The goblin was actually created by Nicky Cooper. Sorry for the mistake and thank you, Birgit, for pointing it out!  :O)

Now back to Ayrell and Drora's presents.

Ayrell from Arcfield gave us this delightful christmas postcard, which she made herself(!)

and something wrapped inside this cheerful green cat-and-dog-christmas paper...

Our very own official Sylvanian Families Calendar for 2020!!! 

This is awesome, especially since it is Mommy's first SF calendar in the 10 years that she has been collecting Sylvanians.

Have a look at these adorable pictures.

As a special bonus, the calendar contained this stunning photo for december of 2019, so we were able to start using it right away! 

Thank you so much, Ayrell! It was wonderful swapping presents with you and my Mommy likes your gifts very much!  :O)


The next person that sent us presents is Drora

Have a look at this beautiful bird card. An artist called Itzik Adir painted this image with their mouth. (I can't even paint this nice using my paw...)

At first I wasn't very happy about these presents wrapped in Colgate packaging... Was Drora suggesting that the Riversiders should brush their teeth more??

Fortunately, there were really delightful presents contained inside. Nothing to do with dental hygiene at all.  :O)

Here are two sweet little pandas, a practical tray and a whimsical green teapot with frog eyes. (Hester has already reserved it for the Hogwarts.)

Then, there was this gorgeous potted plant,

 a bunch of tiny houses (so cute) and a crate filled with pansies.

Last but certainly not least, Drora has made us the proud owner of one of her stunning walnut dioramas!!! 

Unfortunately, the postman got himself a bunch of negative points in Santa's Book when he cracked part of the shell.

Isn't it a good thing that Nina is quite handy with transparent glue? 

Have a look at the restored walnut scene. 

Isn't Drora's miniature snow scene amazing?  :O)

Dear Drora, thank you for your friendship and for generously gifting us these beautiful handmade miniatures!

Have a great week everybody! 

Greetings from me (Fudge) and best wishes from Nina.

A Parcel from Birgit

The Riversiders have been extremely good last year, which is why Birgit sent them this monster of a parcel. :)

Thank you, Birgit!!!

Go on, open it, Jemima!

Of course, Fudge wants to help with the unboxing, too.

There is something very large in here!

Fudge: "If it's made of chocolate, it's mine!!"

And there's more.

"Do you know what is in there?" Ralfie asks Pickles who shakes his head.

"Wow, it's an entire shopping bag full of gifts!" says Hippolina.

I cannot believe that Birgit gave us a little goblin made by Georgia Marfels on Etsy! I wonder whether he's been so mischievous that her biwubears needed to be rid of him?! 
I'll keep an eye on him, that's for sure...

A box filled with wonderful ornaments.

Thank you for this extremely thoughtful gift! You are right, these buttons look so much like Sylvanians. :)

A beautiful advent calendar that can also be used as a lantern!

"Two calendars with photos of my brother and sister!" 

Thank you for all these 
yummy and beautiful gifts, 

Special hugs from Fudge & Pickles 
& Hippolina.
