Buttons, Bricks and Wheelman....

Yesterday I had the most bargainarific find in my local charity shop - yup, you guess correctly, more buttons; (and braid type wool -it prolly has a correct name, and a fantastic 80's belt which is now destined to be chopped...) This is the pink and red pile - I am also the proud owner of green buttons and purple buttons...

My excitement over an old belt and some buttons was superseded when I saw a ginormous box hidden in the corner full of the most marvellous coloured Lego. For a quid!!! - It did contain normal coloured Lego too, and cool little people like Harry Potter, and cars and elephants and dinosaurs...and it is real Lego, not mega blocks....(my sister laughed at my excitement when I told her but it does contain pink Lego bricks!!!) The boys shared my excitement as they tipped it over the living room floor, understandably they were not as enthused about the pink bricks....

Then Jared found a headless Lego man lol. Cue huge stress until he realised that he could make alien men. I will show you 'Wheelman' but we also had 'Treeman' 'Flagman' and 'Flowerman' - I am sure that you are getting the general idea...

Off to pick up Lego bricks...

TFL :)
