Top 10 Favorite Minifigures of 2020

With 2020 firmly behind us, I thought we would take a moment to reflect on some of the highlights of the year. It certainly was one for books. However, despite pandemics, politics, and environmental disasters, it was not all bad. For LEGO® collectors, there were many great moments. For my look back, I decided to…

Wandering This Mortal Plane (Minifigure Monday)

Minifigure Monday is a weekly celebration of LEGO® characters through art. My recent review of the Haunted House (10273) inspired this week’s post. Consequently, Wandering This Mortal Plane explores the concept of lost souls. Additionally, rather than write a simple rhyme, I opted for a specific form of poetry this week. It has been a while…

Smell the Roses (Minifigure Monday)

Minifigure Monday is a weekly celebration of LEGO® characters through art. This week, we contemplate taking the time to smell the roses.

Satisfaction’s Guaranteed (Minifigure Monday)

Minifigure Monday is a weekly celebration of LEGO® Minifigures through art. This week, we explore that endless list of things to do around the house.

Our first major renovation project after moving into our first house is an exciting overhaul…

The Lone Wolf (Minifigure Monday)

I have been taking advantage of the winter and snow lately in my photography. The LEGO® characters alone in barren, white landscapes have produced some interesting images. This week’s photo…
