Lego...

I see that the new Lego movie is out this week in the UK and thought I would share this with you.

Lego has always played a big part in our boys childhood and we have been through many sets... castles,pirate ships, dinosaurs, Star Wars and Harry Potter being a few of them.  Despite, or maybe because they are now 22, 20 and 18 my husband bought them a lego camper van to make over Christmas.  They enjoyed it so much and the finished article is amazing, the detailing inside with a kitchen, seating and even curtains!  It really makes me want to get a real one!






I, being a mere girl, was allowed to hunt for pieces and admire their work, so I settled on making summery butterflies and Easter garlands!



The sun is out today, so I am going to make the most of it and get Harry out for a nice walk and spend some time in the garden.  Have a lovely week x

  1. We're heading off into Edinburgh later on today to see the Lego movie ~ it looks like fun! I absolutely love that camper van although it looks like it may have been a wee bit expensive. I may be off to the shops to check that out as it looks fab and my boy would love it :O)x

  3. My little man loves lego and camper vans .... and so would LOVE one of these. We watched an architecture programme the other night and it talked about how most architects were brought up on Lego and most still use it!
    Pretty garlands ...

    1. I can quite believe it... In our old house, my husband made a lego model of the extension he wanted to show the architect and builder and while I was mortified they didn't bat an eyelid! x

  6. Love that camper. My friend's daughter has something like that. We have lots of bricks here but nothing too fancy yet, maybe as my kids get older. The garlands are lovely, I really like the springy colors.

    1. I think because we had 3 boys with 3 birthdays and christmas to buy for each year they ended up with a lot of lego Jennifer! x

  7. We love Lego too, and what a beautiful camper van. My middle boy is currently agonising over which Lego to buy with his birthday voucher. It's a tricky decision!

  8. You never cease to amaze with the gorgeous garlands that you make. The butterfly one is adorable....perhaps heralding the season of Spring. The Lego camper is amazing. Lego is the absolute best toy for 'children', providing many a happy hour of clever construction!!

  11. I love the Lego camper van - brilliant! Hubbie, being half Danish, has kept lots of Lego from his childhood and we've added to it with various kits over the years. It's all stored in an enormous blanket box and weighs a tonne!
    I'm also loving ALL your creations - just gorgeous and I'm busy thinking about Christmas presents as a consequence! Very early indeed! Also have to say I laughed outloud at your rabbits' knickers conversation! Helen
