Lego’s Around The Christmas Tree :Daily Art Practice



Couch Talk


Last week, I shared that we purchased a new Lego building for our “Lego town,” around the tree. Well, it is a little large for around the tree so right now it is next to the tree. After I took this picture, my husband completed the new building which makes the street wrap around the buffet. The train tracks, make a large “o” underneath our couch. I think we need less furniture so we can make more space for the train.

I have a few more paintings to share from the book, Tea With Bea Recipes from Bea’s of Bloomsbury.




Tea Day 



I am joining the tea day ladies, hosted by Elizbeth and Bleubeard. My tea today is Choco by Yogi Tea. This tea came in my German Yogi Advent calendar. It was a bit strong for my taste but if you like dark chocolate, this tea might be for you.

Happy Tea Day,

  • So glad you shared your lego town-so fun-you may need a seperate room to display it in soon, love that you have a train too.
    Love your art work too-happy T

  • It’s fun to see your Lego town. I think it’s amazing how Legos can move and even light up. I tried chocolate tea once and I didn’t care for it. To me if I want chocolate I’ll have coco. But I still like the idea of your advent tea calendar.. Are your kids getting excited for Christmas. Have a great T day and week ahead. hugs-Erika

  • I like your trains! All the Christmas trains are making me think of the downtown department store windows that we would go to look at when I was a child. They had huge train installations with all sorts of little towns and countrysides and stations and crossings. It was really neat. I have never since lived near anywhere with that sort of display, though I’ve seen some in other types of public places.

  • As always your watercolors loo good enough to eat. Your tree is very beautiful and I love the old-fashioned feel of the Lego village and train. Happy T Day

  • That looks great! So glad you shared the photos. I did read last week’s blogpost and I was hoping you’d show us. What a lovely tradition! I bet your husband loves the construction part but will have to let the children do it when they are a bit older.
    I love your beautiful dresser. Is it antique?
    Happy T-Day,

  • Your Lego village and Christmas tree look fabulous, and I bet your children love seeing them and are excited for Christmas 😊. As always your paintings are amazing – love them! Sending you Happy T Day wishes! Hugs Jo x

  • What a fab Lego town and I love your tree!

    Super watercolors – you are sooo talented – you inspire me every time I visit.

    The tea sounds fabulous to me!

    Happy T-day and Hugz

  • What a fun post.. Last week I went to the Lego site and saw many of the buildings, including ones you have. They are simply stunning and very elaborate. So many details, too. So glad you showed the buildings you have so far. Soon you will need a larger area for them.

    Your drawings are superb. They remind me of some of the images in the book. Yes, I saw the inside pages they showed and read about tea and coffee, too. I agree that loose leaf tea is the best and I also grind my coffee beans right before I make a pot.

    Your tea sounds great. I can only imagine what chocolate tea tastes like. Thanks for sharing your Lego village, your watercolor drawings, and your tea with us for T this week, Kate.

  • Happy Belated T day Kate! I remember i had an Aunt that had a village and train around her Christmas tree.. I loved that! I do apologize for being late! Not 5 minutes after i linked up hubby walks in and says.. ‘ We need to go to the hospital’! He had tried to cut his fingers off with a power tool.. sigh.. He’s alright.. several hours and 12 stitches and one broken finger later he’s doing good.. That man! Hugs! deb
