Coveting

I will try and talk less Lego soon, promise, but right now, it's become a household obsession.

After we bought the Doctor's Lego the other day, Tiny and I went to a cafe where the guy there was enquiring about our Lego purchase. He wanted a look, so we showed him the box and set to jive-talking. Whatever jive-talking is. Cafe Man told me how much he LOVED Lego and then showed me his pendant - a heart made of Lego blocks. Pretty darn cool. And he also mentioned rings that Lego had made. So I came home and hit Google to find said rings. Et voila! You can mix them up with different blocks - my favourite are the flowers. They're not new (from what I see, they were released circa 2007) - but new to me.

Lego makes parenting super duper fun. It's something for the Doctor and I to enjoy together (except I'm always being instructed what to make and how to make it. Yes boss!).

I found them via Like Cool.

the flowers in general are from at least the 1970s. I'm not sure about the ring. My lego kitchen set that I had as a child had flower bundles just like those with interchangable petals!

Lego Kitchen with Flowers from the 1970s- http://www.worthpoint.com/worthopedia/vintage-lego-kitchen-set-1970s-box-67314790

Flowers are a bit tricky to see in the pictures. They are on the center of the table.

Very cool...
They look great on their own - even without any blocks added!

Oh me me me.....we have those flowers. They are from the Belleville set with the horses I think.
I don't have a ring to put them on though, which makes me a wee bit sad.
