I've found this thread )
So may be we can post our sets here!

I'm going to rebuild my bouqet(10280) soon.

How many fans do we have here?
Grand idea! I'm happy to help revive this thread. I would love to see what fellow Lego fans are working on/own/what's on their wishlist, happy Lego memories. . . whatever. I will post some stuff later on today - I'm supposed to be working right now.

P.S. - My avatar is a custom build I did of Bob Ross and a Happy Little Tree. We're big fans of him in our house.

I haven't played with Lego for many years, but it was my favourite toy when I was a kid. I remember there being a TV advert in the 70s - 'Lego - it's a new toy every day.' Very true! I didn't have a massive collection of Lego, but what I did have I passed onto my daughter when she was a kid, and we added to it a bit. She's grown up now, and the Lego is in the attic. I mainly used to build houses with my Lego, and go-carts for my Barbie sized dolls to ride round in. I also had quite a few Lego people, and some Lego furniture. I never got the Lego bedroom set - I sometimes think I might try to track down a 1970's Lego bedroom set on Ebay, just to complete my collection! I remember one thing I didn't like about the Lego toilet was that it was square, which I didn't think looked very realistic. Times change, though - my daughter has recently moved into her own house, and it has a square toilet!

Not the greatest pictures - taken with my old iPad. And please excuse the dust! Ugh, just dusted this shelf a couple of weeks ago - those with Lego know the never-ending attraction of dust to it. ;)

This is one of the sets in my collection, started off my love of buildings and modulars. This is the Old Fishing Store. I love the vintage, ramshackle look of it and the details are amazing - like the lobster sitting on ice in a crate and the crooked tiles on the roof. The inside is equally amazing. I'm also a sucker for all the unique little animals, birds and critters that Lego makes.

Ooooo, ahhhh! The Bricklink Designer Lego set I ordered last June arrived on my doorstep last night. Spending my 50th birthday playing with Lego seems a fitting way young to stay young, haha. This set is pretty special - crowdfunded and only 10,000 made so I feel fortunate to get my hands on a set.

Wow, I love the late '80s, early '90s throwback Castle theme. I remember that look and those factions from when I was a kid. Happy building!

The newest addition to the Lego minifigure collection - the Muppets! Ha! These bring back some fond childhood memories - all my family, including my mum, dad and Nana, would sit and watch The Muppets together.

What’s your fav? For me, I think it’s either Animal & Janice or Dr, Bunsen Honeydew & Beaker.
