Today is the first Sunday of Advent. It marks the beginning of the Christian liturgical year, and it officially opens the period of Advent.

Well, I have a special project in mind, so stay tuned.
I hope the project will be Christmassy enough.
Time will tell. 

The car is cool, but the one from the original 10197 is more iconic.
Yet that one sells for 500 EUR today, so this one is for sure a playable alternative that looks cool.
And I will turn this little fire station in a non-winter version one day.
The windows are nice.
The gate is pretty classy, and the firemen minifigures are a new favorite. 

It won't make it to my village, as it does not fit in, but I am sure this one will make it to my Xmas box.

I like this set a lot more than I expected to. I bought it mostly because I was impressed with the firefighter minifigs and the Christmas tree but I've had quite a bit of fun photographing it. Nice review! I'm looking forward to seeing more of your photos of this set :-)

Love the vintage look of this set, and the Christmas tree, and the snow man, and the minifig and the red door to!
Great set, can't wait to see what you will make with it Boris :)
