As some of the most popular LEGO sets for older builders since its launch last year, the Botanical Garden collection has been hard to find on store shelves. Now, not only are two of the kits in stock, but they also come with some of the best prices to date via Amazon. Right now you can tag the LEGO flower bouquet for $40.49 shipped at Amazon, down from the usual price of $50. A few cents from the all-time low, this is the best price of the year and a rare overall offer. Stacking up to 756 pieces, this set brings together a collection of flowers so you can create your own bouquet. These large-scale builds will look lovely whether as the centerpiece of your table or as a gift to someone special. Get all the details in our hands-on review, then head below for a notable discount on the LEGO Bonsai Tree.

If you’re looking for another way to bring brick-built greenery to your collection, Amazon is also offering a discount on the LEGO Bonsai Tree. $40.33. Sitting at the best price of the year, this one is also a rare chance to find it during the available period, not to mention the usual price of $50.

Stacking up to 878 pieces, the LEGO Bonsai puts together a detailed recreation of the iconic plant in brick form. Alongside a wooden stand, you can also replace the normal green leaves with cherry blossom flowers to add an extra touch to the build. We’ve found this to be the best LEGO kit of 2021 so far in our hands-on review.

[Jeremy Cook] writes to us about one of his projects – a bouquet of LED cubic flowers. The flowers are PCB cubes made up of small, crenellated PCBs, each of which has an individually addressable LED in its center. Slots mechanically hold the cubes together, and thanks to a cleverly chosen pinout, only two different PCB types need to be ordered to build such a flower!

As a vase for these flowers, he decided to use a glass bottle – which would need a cutout to fit an ESP8266-powered NodeMCU board, a controller of choice for the project. After a few different approaches to cutting the glass all resulted in the bottles cracking, he ditched the “clean cut” idea and repurposed one of the broken bottles, regluing it well enough for the aesthetic to work. .

[Jeremy] tells us he got help from a hack we covered in 2017 – using a diode for level shifting, as the 3.3V level signals from the ESP8266 don’t match the inputs well WS2812. From there, the ESP8266’s WLED firmware ties everything together nicely. It’s clear that [Jeremy] had a field day designing this, playing around with all the ideas and approaches!

Colored LEDs are indispensable for decorating hacker homes. From a bouquet of flowers, you might find yourself sketching out a crenellated PCB tile design, and the next thing you know, you’ve created a beautiful triangular LED tile system. Some PCB manufacturers don’t care about castellations, and if so, you might as well finish the job yourself.

Valentine’s Day has a lot of haters, but those who love it really love it – and try to make this special day as romantic as possible.

If you’re the kind of person who tends to forget these kinds of occasions, you can even order them now for delivery on February 14th to ensure you don’t end up in the niche this year.

Zen Moment: Working on the LEGO Bonsai is engaging and meditative. (Photo: LEGO)

Building LEGO sets can be a calming way to spend an evening, especially when you’re tired of staring at screens. Like crafts, LEGO “work” is a great stress reducer. But most of the kits are made for kids, or hard to keep (not everyone wants to have a Hogwarts model sitting on the coffee table). That’s why LEGO is making more and more sets with adults in mind.

LEGO plants are one of our favorites – they add to your decor, rather than taking it away – and they’re discounted by $ 10 on Amazon right now.

Shipping is free, but you can start using your kits even earlier with Amazon Prime. Do not have an account yet? Sign up here for a free trial. Remember: the holidays are coming. You might want to take advantage of this offer to pick up (and put away) some freebies.

Lego bonsai can be pink for spring

Real bonsai trees take a lot of work, but a LEGO version is stress-free fun. That’s 878 fairly manageable pieces, and buyers are raving about its entertainment. One builder calls it “extraordinarily easy” because of the way the parts are separated in numbered bags, and says it’s “a wonderful bit of nostalgia.” This gentleman concocted his in an hour and a half, “drinking and enjoying a little jazz while doing it, to unwind after a long week at work.” He adds: “There is just something therapeutic in the botanical collection in my opinion.”

Fully assembled, the LEGO Bonsai always attracts a lot of raves, with one buyer displaying their bonsai on the mantle, gradually evolving their tree with the pink blossoms (included) (which are actually a mix of tiny pink blossoms and small ones. pink frogs) and: “Depending on the season, it begins its slow change from green leaves to cherry blossoms. Visitors to my house assume it’s natural until I tell them about getting closer ….” Many builders like to swap between leaves and flowers depending on the season.

This father is “in love with the fact that the majority of” cherry blossoms “are tiny pink frogs …”. It’s a great kit!

The LEGO Bonsai kit normally costs $ 50, but at the moment it costs $ 40. It’s also very hard to get, so you should buy one before it’s out of stock again!

For something more colorful, there’s the LEGO Flower Bouquet, a detailed take on flowers like roses, daisies and poppies. Each flower comes with a long stem (which you also build), so you can display them in your favorite vase or pot. For one buyer, it was “love at first sight” thanks to the “combination of beauty and functionality” of the LEGO flower bouquet. Her whole family was “amazed by the final masterpiece …”

Some customers have found it a bit difficult to assemble due to the small parts, but the instructions are “step by step and… easy to follow”. This grandmother says it’s not easy to put together but she “didn’t want it to be easy… you accepted a challenge! It’s part of the pleasure of working with LEGOS.

And many buyers love that these flowers will stay beautiful forever. Working solo on the LEGO flower bouquet can be meditative, but working together can create a great bonding experience – one parent says, “My daughter, son and I loved building it together because we each picked out a few flowers for. work. au. ”Now that the final product is on display, they remember the experience“ whenever we see it fondly ”.

This complex set typically costs $ 50, but it’s currently discounted by almost $ 10. And, like bonsai, it tends to quickly disappear from the shelves. Take advantage of the sale price today so you can add some color to your winter months.

Walker’s Introduces New Flower Bouquets Building Bar https://twillastinytreasures.com/walkers-introduces-new-flower-bouquets-building-bar/ https://twillastinytreasures.com/walkers-introduces-new-flower-bouquets-building-bar/#respond Tue, 19 Oct 2021 17:00:00 +0000 https://twillastinytreasures.com/walkers-introduces-new-flower-bouquets-building-bar/ Walker’s Footwear and Apparel isn’t just selling clothes anymore.

Walker’s Footwear and Apparel isn’t just selling clothes anymore. Uptown Shop now sells everything from plants and ceramics to shoes, of course.

Owner Amy Longcamp has tried to expand the inventory to accommodate all types of buyers.

Longcamp, along with her friend Jennifer Domenico, opened a flower stand inside the store last spring.

“I just know Jen and what she creates and how beautiful the things she makes are, I thought it would be a good match. [for the store]”said Longcamp.

Domenico has been growing flowers on her farm, Cedar Hill, since 2017. She began learning about the regrowth of local flower industries after seeing all the locally grown flowers at farmers’ markets.

Domenico’s “Bloom Bar” offers seasonal flowers that customers can purchase by stalk.

“A lot of people think you have to be able to put together a big bouquet, and that’s a bit overwhelming for most people,” said Domenico. “People should be aware that you can just catch a flower or two. “

The Bloom Bar inside the Walker’s also offers pre-arranged bouquets and “eternal” bouquets, which are dried green vegetables that can be stored much longer than regular flowers.

In season, stems sell for between $ 1 and $ 5, and larger mixed bouquets range from $ 15 to $ 35 depending on size.

The Small Jar, a small, ready-made arrangement of flowers and greenery in a mason jar, allows customers to get the in-between of a large bouquet and a few loose stems.

University of Miami sophomore Faye Sawtelle who works at Walker’s, said she hopes the Bloom Bar will attract new customers to the store.

“We have a lot of inventory that students would love when it comes to clothing and room decor,” Sawtelle said. “I really like some of the new Patagonia flowerpots and jackets we recently purchased.”

The Bloom Bar is only part of the Walker’s expansion. Longcamp hopes to add more plants and household items, as well as other brands.

“I’m glad Jen brings as much as she wants,” said Longcamp. “We now have pots and a few plants, but I would like to have more plants so that you have a variety to choose from. ”

Longcamp said Walker’s will continue to offer brands such as Patagonia and Cotopaxi, but will now have more accessories and clothing from smaller brands to go with them.

“Most of the brands we offer have a return strategy,” Longcamp said. “We have a lot of women-owned businesses that we’ve started.”

The new brands and accessories, as well as the Bloom Bar, also won over Walker’s customers.

“Once people find out we have a flower bar, they often stop for bouquets,” Sawtelle said.

The Bloom Bar is restocked once or twice a week, giving guests the option to choose from fresh flowers.

Cedar Hill of Domenico has also hosted events in Miami and bouquet orders in the past and hopes to continue working with flowers outside of Bloom Bar. Walker’s also hopes to host events in the future where groups can create their own bouquets of flowers or wreaths, depending on the season.

Domenico said she hoped the Bloom Bar would attract more people to Walker’s and keep the local flower activity going.

“People should know that you can just take a few flowers,” Domenico said. “If you just want to grab a flower or two from your nightstand, this is an easy, inexpensive way to have flowers all the time.”

The LEGO Group started 2021 by releasing their new Botanical Garden theme, and we now see a pair of historic Amazon lows on two of the recent sets. Right now you can take home the LEGO flower bouquet for $ 40 shipped on Amazon, down from the regular price of $ 50. Still marking one of the very first price drops to date, the 20% savings are $ 5 less than our previous mention and, as noted above, a new all-time low. Stacking up to 756 pieces, this set brings together a collection of flowers for you to create your own boutique. These large scale builds will look lovely, whether it’s the centerpiece of your dining table or as a gift to someone special. Get all the details in our hands-on review, then head below for a noticeable discount on the LEGO Bonsai Tree.

If you’re looking for another way to bring some brick greenery to your collection, Amazon is also offering a discount on the LEGO Bonsai Tree for 40 $. By matching the all-time low set a few times in the past, you save the same 20% off the going rate of $ 50 as above. Since this version has been hard to find on the shelves of virtual or physical stores for quite some time, today’s discount is all the more noticeable. Stacking up to 878 pieces, the LEGO Bonsai Tree assembles a detailed recreation of the iconic plant in brick form. Along with a wooden stand, you’ll also be able to swap out the normal green leaves for cherry blossoms to add an extra touch to the build. We found this to be the best LEGO kit of 2021 so far in our hands-on review.

Over the weekend, we received two notable LEGO reports on what to expect from the final months of the year alongside the 2022 lineup. Right after our report on UCS Luke’s Landspeeder entering the collection at Spring of next year, we got our first look at the LEGO Luke Lightsaber which will be a gift with purchase over the holiday season.

Features of the LEGO flower bouquet:

The LEGO Flower Bouquet Building Kit (10280) makes a unique gift or thoughtful project, creating a beautiful flower display model made entirely from LEGO pieces. Please note that a vase is not included. This flower bouquet offers a vibrant display of interesting colors and shapes, inspired by real flowers such as roses, snapdragons, poppies, asters, daisies and grasses.

Back when my wife and I were graduate students in Illinois, we would get by on Saturday mornings with samples of Swedish IGA and Swedish meatballs and meat rolls for happy hour at the local pub. We could both make a beer last for three or four waves of free aperitif snacks. Disposable income was more of a concept at the time than a reality. Needless to say, a bouquet of cut flowers on the kitchen table was a bit rare.

True, freshly cut flowers do not pay the rent. They don’t cover the dentist’s bills and they certainly don’t pay for school supplies. But they’re doing something that other things can’t. They provide a daily dose of joy and a hamster wheel distraction from the brain. In short, cut flowers, whether bought on the way home from the office or freshly cut from your own garden, give you a boost that’s hard to replicate in other ways.

If you are buying your flowers, there are a few things you should know. First, in general, the bigger the store, the longer they’ve been sitting, waiting for you to buy them. Flowers from a big box store probably started at a commercial grower, then shipped to a processing facility, then to a wholesaler, and finally to the grocery store where it might take them a day or two to reach. ground. This probably means a shorter vase life when you bring them home.

Now there’s one more thing I need to touch on about grocery store cut flowers. The preferred flower type, color, and arrangement is certainly a very personal thing. Some like roses and others like lilies. To each his own. But when it comes to that nuclear, artificially dyed color jobs, I just can’t follow the golden rule. Personal preferences cannot go any further before they quantifiably diminish the value of the planet as a whole.

The glittering blue carnations covered in British blue and the red daisies covered in glitter are just plain wrong and you know it! (The soapbox’s public service announcement is now over.)

If you buy your flowers from a local farm stall, farmers market, or other small-scale grower, you usually get a fresher product that will last longer at home. But even so, I recommend asking when the flowers were cut. I find in local farmers’ markets that the flowers offered for sale were usually cut the same morning or at most the day before. But you are the buyer, so keep in mind that it’s perfectly okay to ask. No good producer will be offended.

And then there are the cut flowers at home. If you have room I highly recommend it. There is nothing quite like slipping on your slippers and bathrobe in the morning and going out into the garden to cut a few bouquets for the breakfast table. (Ok … the same goes for blueberries, strawberries and tomatoes, but you know what I mean!)

Growing your own cut flowers gives you the freshest produce and the great satisfaction of knowing that you have grown them yourself. And don’t forget that growing cut flowers at home gives you a lot of flexibility. You are not limited to annuals alone. At home, everything is fine.

For cut annuals, the sky is the limit in terms of variety. And even if you have limited space, a single large container may suffice. In my own very shaded yard, I only have a few square feet of sun. And in this sunny spot is a 32 inch diameter container with just blooming zinnias. This pot is enough to provide us with one or two fresh bouquets per week while leaving enough to keep the pot in good condition in the garden.

Zinnias, like all cut flowers, can last over a week in a vase if handled properly.

But don’t forget your perennials and woodlands either. Whether it’s a peony or hydrangea, dogwood or magnolia, most things can be cut and brought inside for everyday enjoyment. Of course, some things last longer than others. But you will learn over time what works and what doesn’t.

Whether you bring them home or cut them in the yard, most fresh cut flowers should give you a good week of quality presentation. But to get the most out of them, you need to treat your flowers with kindness.

To keep your flowers in the best condition, here are a few things to keep in mind:

Once cut, avoid the sun

The number one killer of cut flowers is the sun. Once a stem is separated from its roots, it struggles to provide enough water to the petals to keep them happy. Don’t leave them in a hot car for a few stops on the way back from the farmer’s market. And when you bring them home, keep them out of sunny windows. If it helps, think of your cut flowers as a nice bottle of champagne: keep them cool and out of the sun.

Cut your flowers at home underwater

Zinnias, like all cut flowers, can last over a week in a vase if handled properly.

The number two killer of cut flowers is air. Air? That’s right. Air. You have no doubt heard that you should make a new cut at the base of your cut flowers when you bring them home and that it is best to make this cut underwater. The reason for this recommendation is that the water in the rod is under tension. When you make a cut, water is sucked into the plumbing from the rod. When you then put the rod into the water, there is an air bubble stuck in the aqueduct and this bubble makes it difficult for the water to pass. Cutting the stem underwater ensures that only more water is sucked into the stem.

With cut woody stems (lilac, viburnum, and the like), here’s a good tip for getting rid of that air. Put a pot of water to boil before going out to cut your stems. Once the water boils, remove it from the heat and let it stop boiling. Then take your stems and put the bottom 2-3 inches in hot water and you will see tiny air bubbles coming out of the base of each stem. This hot water sanitizes your stem but also expels air so that you can have a continuous water column in your cut stem.

Isn’t science cool ?!

Watch out for bacteria in your water

Zinnias, like all cut flowers, can last over a week in a vase if handled properly.

The number three killer of cut flowers is the bacteria that clogs the stem piping. That cut flower food that you get in little packets … that’s very good. But it’s really not that important as flower food. Of course, there is sugar in there. But the most important part of this little package is a preservative which slows down the growth of bacteria in the water. The unpleasant smell of water from weeklong cut flowers … is the growth of bacteria. And a lot of bacteria means a lot of clogged stems.

So it’s really very simple. Buy your fresh flowers or grow your own. Treat them like good champagne. And never – and I mean never – buy flowers covered in glitter!
