As my regular readers might have caught on, our family recently started a LEGO based business. We're opening a physical store in our hometown (see info here) and are busy with bricks most of the time. Life has been just a wee bit hectic of late. But full of (mostly) *fun* challenges. I had to look up and see if anyone out there in this wide world had created some Anne-themed LEGO designs. BEHOLD:
See the other Anne set designs, including Green Gables and Matthew's carriage HERE.

For inspiration I've been poking around online for other folk's ideas. A gathering of ideas:
- Life in the Fast Lane. An Anne tea on the first day of Spring.
- The Relevant Tea Leaf Anne of Green Gables Tea.
A favorite quote of mine from this year's reading of Anne of Ingleside:

Anne of Ingleside, Chapter 33
And that reminds me of this beautiful song, which I will leave with you today:
