LEGOS FOR ADULTS



A team of Italian artists led by Jan Vormann have taken it upon themselves to improve several crumbling building exteriors with legos. That’s right legos! Those brightly colored plastic construction toys that we and our kids have been playing with for many years. The response has been positive- there are plans to work on three more villages!. This installation was done in Bocchignano, Italy, a village close to Rome.

Very interesting. I can't say I like the way it looks, but find it very resourceful on the artists part. What about your house? I'd love a tour! I'll show up with a tub of Legos for any repairs. Hopefully there aren't any, but after your mom and sis went with you, you never know. LOL :) Legos are actually pretty pricey, I mean that work took a lot of them. They run about $25 for one tub (and it's not that big)! Please pray for my mom this morning, she's having her knee replaced!

That is wild. I'm not too sure I would want to be IN the buildings as the structure just doesn't appear to pass the safety codes.

OH, my boys and grandson always have loved legos! I'm sure one day they'll build something significant themselves! :)

Last night we were praying with the boys and had finished when "Wuke" said to pray for Mrs. Owens. They love you so much and miss you dearly!
