My first Lego build in years.......

I put together the flower bouquet I got for my birthday.  I was stumped for a few seconds when I opened the box and out poured numerous numbered bags.  Then when I saw the instruction book had 82 pages I was a tad concerned this wasn't going to be a five minute job!!

However, I quickly figured out what was going on and the instructions were idiot proof......well more or less!!  I still managed to mess up a piece by putting it in back to front!!  Still I managed to catch that mistake very quickly and got on with it.

The only negative thing I have to say is that some of the pieces are tiny and a little fiddly to put together.  So if you have stiff fingers it may be a little difficult for you.  I found it very relaxing though doing this.

All in all I would say it took less than 2 hours to put everything all together.  I did it over two evenings.  

They are quite heavy.  The photo below was taken at night.
I have popped them into a tall glass, as I want to make up the other bouquet and place them all in the same vase.
I have the girls overnight on the weekend and Nora wants to help me make the wildflower bouquet, as she enjoys putting together Lego.

I have seen these set's online and may get them if I see them when I am out and about.

I LOVE those. Very clever too and, I would imagine, quite addictive. xx

Lego is going in alk directions these days, a far cry from the trucks and buildings I remember. I expect the pieces are still painful to step on..

So jealous! I would love to play with these. My boys both know I love Lego so maybe, just maybe, they might treat me sometime.

I just got that last today...I ordered it from Amazon on Saturday. I think I told you that I was going to look for them for my daughter. I did. Then had second thoughts and it just set. Then I showed it to my other daughter and she thought it was a good idea. The daughter I bought it for likes succulents, so I felt pretty sure she will like it. I like them all,

So stinking cute. Not sure I would have the patience to do one though.

God bless.

If you have a KitchenAid mixer

 have you seen these: They are hooks/knobs that either stick or can be screwed into your cupboards to hang up your mixer attachments too.  I...
