About Marigold Creek

History of Marigold Creek

Marigold Creek was once found by Sir Francis Chocolate. He encountered the hidden place in May 1815, while he was looking for some blueberries.

Francis Chocolate, an ancestor of Frasier Chocolate (known as Hans Löffel), was impressed by the beautiful flora and the huge waterfall, which flows into a large lake. 

After he returned into his home town he told his wife about the place. They packed there belongings and moved two days after Francis' discovery deep into the forest.

Mary, Francis' wife, named the place after the huge amount of marigolds and the chrystal clear river, which ran beside their new home - Marigold Creek. 

Although some people had known about the new village, just a few settlers followed Francis and his family. One of them was William Buttercup.

Today more and more villagers are moving to Marigold Creek, enjoying the peaceful atmosphere and the healthy nature.

I built this house by myself, using thin wood plates. It is the first house I've ever made and the home of my first Sylvanian family: The Löffel/Chocolate Rabbit family.

The McBurrow's home

The McBurrows were the third family I owned and I really love them. They look so special and always seem to smile.
I could have bought them a house or build a normal one, but I wanted to give them a more natural looking home. So I made their house out of paper mache.

Shops & Restaurants

The Hamburger Restaurant (owned by the Tuxedos)

The Hamburger Restaurant was the first building I received. Although I really like the building, I wasn't that happy about the inside. It looked so bare. After wallpapering and covering the tables and chairs, I'm much more pleased with the restaurant.

This restaurant is a special luxus Hamburger Restaurant, in which the owners serve just the best quality products.

The Bakery (owned by the Löffel family)

The bakery is one of my favourite buildings, because I like the design very much.  I bought a used one and decorated it myself. The most objects (like the food) and furniture you see in here were not from the original set, but made by me. 

The house itself was build many years ago and is family-owned since more than three generations. Lately Hans and Flora Löffel, the current owners, renovated the bakery and reopened it.
The familie is very proud of their selfmade products. While Hans normally bakes the bread and the simpler cakes, his wife spends hours and effort in decorating beautiful birthday cakes or delicious cupcakes.
