Geoff from the post office and his brother Mark stood at the bottom of the Village's huge Christmas tree. They were trying to coax the drunken fairy at the top to come down. As I understand it (from Santa no less - shhh dont tell him I told you) it is Marks wife pretending to be the fairy after visiting the steaming eggnog cart and having one too many! Meanwhile, their son is happily playing with his fire truck. To the left is the market selling yummy goodness and the frozen duck pond to work off all that sugar.
Merry Christmas Everyone!
Santa 'Ho Ho Ho's!' his way back into the village with final gifts for the inhabitants of Winter Village. Everyone is excited that everything was done and out on time and very happy to see Santa still smiling broadly and wishing everyone a 'Merry Christmas!'. Once his last delivery was made Santa went through the toy shop up to the workshop and joined in the Elves after party. Mrs Claus had made extra cookies and his favourite swirlies. The Elves danced and partied into the evening... theres always one curious little scamp though... look out little elf 'Diddy' has found Aladdins lamps!!
Merry Christmas Everyone!
It is often difficult for our hard working (!) builders in Lego Planet during this time of year when most constructions are scaled back for the holiday period. Thankfully a new building was spotted... a popup job centre, very specialised... construction crew enter and out come fully equipped and trained santas, all ready to help out over the holidays.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE :)
Hi folks its Stephanie! I'm so excited! I’ve just been shown around the awesome art gallery by none other than Mr Pierre L'ego himself! There are all sorts of things in there to appeal to all art lovers. There’s classical art from the likes of Constable, Monet, Van Gogh and Da Vinci, side by side with pictures inspired by Mondrian and Picasso. Pierre even showed me his favourite piece, a special purchase by Skinner entitled 'Light Reading'. If paintings are not your thing then there are plenty of sculptures ranging from the Grecian 'Marble of Destiny' to the 'Toad of Passion'. There is even something for the gamers, a Staff from the Warcraft wars. But what really stole my heart was the special exhibit - 'The Bricks of Ten-te'. There is something mystical about them. I was allowed to give you a taste of some of the pictures below but it is no substitute for seeing them yourself! So everyone come and look around and perhaps buy one of Pierre's masterpieces for yourself in his art sale.
Welcome everyone to the next social event on the town calendar! The prestigious opening of our very own art gallery. It would seem the sign painter has heard the same rumours as we did and has made a mistake on the sign. I hear that he will be out of hospital soon after his unfortunate ladder accident. The great and the good are due to turn up for a special look around the gallery before it officially opens its doors. Stephanie will be having an exclusive tour and she will tell you all about it! People are lining the street with the police and gallery security keeping the enthusiastic crowd at bay. Ah, here is the first limo to turn up tonight and it has Mayor Arnold and ... is that his a new girl friend? Next we have Bouncy L’ego a leading pop star from Friendsville - she'll be singing at a venue near you soon! Then there’s Al and his son Cal, with Steve and Holly - i understand Pierre has a very affectionate poodle. The bouncers, *cough* erm 'gallery security' are closing the doors now that alll the VIP’s are inside. I’ll wait around and see if anything exciting happens but for now it’s me Larry L’ego signing off.
Pedro, a once promising student of Pierre is making an attempt to get in on the act as Pierre announces the imminent opening of his new art gallery.
He has today unveiled his latest artwork, a triptych with an 'organic' theme. Valued at a mere 120,000 studs, it would appear that it is a real investment (albeit short term), he points out that it is important to sell quickly before the artwork starts to devalue either due to time or teethmarks!
In a bizarre twist to this story, when Pierre was asked what he thought of the piece his response was 'nice but better with a drop of custard' then he promptly ate the banana. Pedro just looked on mortified. Obviously Pierre was not going to display this in his grand opening. I suspect the two are now at war.
Mr Pierre L’ego is a mysterious figure in our town. Living in a loft above Chez Albert few people ever see this elusive painter. I have it on good authority though that he is in fact Pete L’ego long lost son of our illustrious Mayor Arnold. When the mayor and his wife Joan divorced some years ago Pete went to live with her in Paris while his younger brother Mick stayed with the mayor. While in France Pete became an accomplished painter and quickly made a name for himself – at least my art source tells me he did. But it turns out that the apple does not fall far from the tree as they say. It is rumoured that in his spare time he was creating forgeries and selling them to unsuspecting buyers. I suspect that is why he suddenly turned up back here a few months ago to renovate an old warehouse into the towns art gallery.
Steve runs Masons Pets and every morning makes his rounds with a cup of coffee in his hand and a cheery greeting. He has a way with animals and they all seem to love him, either that or it is his new aftershave; 'Animal' by Legcôme, though Holly thinks it makes him smell like a wet wheelbarrow at sunset. The shop has everything you could want for your pet, including the pet! His lovely wife Holly has just graduated from Vet School and is examining Mayor Arnold's trusty dog Kibbles as he has a nasty cough. So if you need a loving companion or a new toy for pet come along to see Steve and he'll sort you out. Got a poorly pet? Instead of traipsing to Sideboard City, come and see Holly! She can look after wildlife too!
