Hey Everyone! It has been quite awhile since I last updated and I'm really sorry about that. As you can see, I've been a bit busy with my latest Sylvanian project, which involves creating this little picnic diorama!
A few weeks, I decided get a couple of these Candy toys from my friend Kiki's, online shop BeHappy!. Now, if you don't already know she is selling a huge joblot of Candy toys at heavily discounted prices!
Anyway, I did recieved my package yesterday from Kiki's yesterday with the two sets, I bought!
White Bear's Ice Cream Shop #3 by Megahouse
French Treats and Snacks #3 by Rement
As for the display case, I got it for a mere SGD$2(About GBP£1) at a Japanese dollar store called Daiso. As for the green felt used for the bushes and grass, they purcashed from Spotlight, a craft shop. The little sign at the back and cooler box were handmade by me using ordinary Popsicle sticks, glue and paints.
A picnic fit for a king?
