I like to sort the LEGO pieces by color and then by shapes. It’s relaxing. Having the colors and shapes sorted makes it easier to find the required pieces. I like to think I’m being helpful to my grandson. He’s really good at putting the creations together.
Just north of Columbus Ohio at the Easton Mall.
Our family enjoys building with Lego. I don’t like to step on it with bare feet, though! I’m am always happy to see things made out of Lego.
My sister sent me some photos of store windows (my favorite is LEGO store) from a walk around the city
Art of the Brick Exhibit is just…Wow! Artist Nathan Sawaya’s Work is amazing. I want to go back and take more time looking and thinking about all his creativity that went into making these artworks. And all from regular LEGO pieces.Thousands of them.

One of my favorites (with undulating lights simulating water) was The Swimmer.
Yes, that’s all constructed with LEGO. The piece count is written on each artwork’s label.
It all starts with the single brick
The kids enjoyed building with LEGO at the stations provided on the second floor
a lot of pieces in the Easter Island sculpture Moai Part of the In Pieces Gallery. LEGO objects in large photographs. Umbrella in this one
Thanks to Laura for sending me this Little Library photo. Clintonville Ohio sure has a lot of these little libraries. This one with a Lego diorama and a note to leave the Lego please.
Now a photo a day for a week to capture the present. As it is, right in the moment. The Weekly Photo Challenge. NOW
New Jammies. A log on the fire.
Spotted during Thanksgiving vacation as we were entering the Brooklyn Museum. There are similar cars in Berlin and Australia and the artist Ai Weiwei is tweeting when new locations for Lego donations are set up.
Only after I photographed it, read and researched the reason for the Lego donations for Ai Weiwei’s artworks did I realize there was a controversy.
The manufacturer of Lego in Denmark refused to supply a bulk order of lego bricks for his artwork due to the nature of his artworks’ political messages. Here is an article in The Atlantic and you can read about the controversy here
More than a decade ago I saw a show narrated by Rick Sebak on PBS about Oram’s Bakery in Beaver Falls, PA. Beaver Falls is about 35 miles Northwest of the city and is on the Beaver River. ( I just looked it up and the show was out in 1999)
Their cinnamon rolls are their most popular donut, and they appeared to be the size of dinner plates. Well, at least a luncheon plate. I am sure each one weighs a half a pound.
I’d always intended to go check them out.
Today I did.
They barely fit in the bakery box.
I bought a seventh cinnamon roll for me to eat for lunch and Josh put it in a white paper bakery bag for me.
Here is Josh graciously posing for me with the box of the donuts. Thank you Josh.
I was going to take the box to Ohio but the car was so hot that when I was at the Beaver Falls Post Office I saw a woman waiting in a car, so I asked her if she liked Oram’s donuts and she said yes so I went to the car and gave her the box. She was most appreciative.
Nicole is constructing boxes to hold donut orders.
Josh and his brother built this LEGO® donut bakery. They sent a design to a company online and they sent the design kit to build, software is involved. It’s on display in the bakery and I found it fascinating.
A lot of details. This is the front of the bakery.
Love the LEGO® donuts
Oh yes, I mentioned that Beaver Falls is Football Hall of Famer Joe Namath‘s hometown so I found the plaque to him by the library(the library is closed on Friday’s 🙁 ) I drove by the Beaver Falls Senior High School but it is a modern one now and so I figured the old one must be the Middle School next door.
My friend Gail and her parents took me to see the JETS play in the late sixties and you know who the quarterback was in that game!
