The Bearbury Bear Family

So the Bearbury Family has been living in my Village for about a year now. I just love the small bear mold, and would probably get each and every small bear mold release ever made, if I had the money and the space.

Before I even got them I knew I wanted them to be Honey farmers and knew that they will live, just like the Meadows mouse family in an old refurbished stable on Highfields farm. They will share 'outhouse' facilities with the Meadows, but I wanted them to have a private space for cooking and sleeping.

So a week or two ago the decorating bug bit me and though I wasnt in the mood for a big project I decided to get the Bearbury's settled in.

The decorated stable: small but cosy

Close up: the attic room is the children's bedroom. While downstairs is the kitchen and living room area. The sofa doubles as a bed (sleeper couch) for mom and dad at night

Do have a close look at the two plate cooker/stove. Kyraja from Marigold creek made it. She also made the crockery. It must be be one of my favorite teasets in all of Sugarbush Valley. Irene is a really lucky lady. (Notice something strange about the sink?)

A closer look at the attic. Owen has a mattress and sleeping bag while little Harriet's cot fits perfectly.

The house and surroundings

Father Bruno just loves to spend time with at beehives, situated in a private and quite spot next to the stable.

A very happy family in front of their house

And this is how I see my stable area. The stable in the corner of the photo is that of the Meadows family. As I only own one stable (yes I redecorated another building), Sylvanako helped me to stitch two photos together to get the idea of this area.

Just a quick but special thanks to Sylvanako who helped with the photo. And Sigrun for inspriring. She is the original stable area queen, and the false attic floor was also her idea.

  2. I love your decorated stables, so cute! The beehives are lovely too.
    And I did notice something strange about the sink - no taps! Perhaps it is automatic...

    1. Yep, but I dont like doing it without wallpaper, so I cut the wallpaper to, and then keep for one day that I do own the house/building.
