Vignettes are like the haiku of the LEGO world. Usually built on a base 8 studs wide by 8 studs deep, vignettes show a little scene or a moment in time. But like written poetry, there’s plenty of variation on the basic theme.

Chanukah at the Cooperman house

Hillel Cooperman over at BrickPOP has built a lovely vignette of his family in their living room on Chanukah (which starts this evening at sunset).

Hillel says, “Some details include presents, our three cats, all five family members, the menorah, the lit shamash (the candle you light the other candles with), soufganiot (jelly donuts – a holiday tradition), and a lit fire (thank you light brick). Enjoy!”

Marvelous Makeshift Micros

Flickr user iridescent nohow has been quietly filling his photostream with delightfully ingenious little microscale vignettes. His clever parts usages are par excellence, and they often come at a scale a great deal smaller than most LEGO microscale creations. It’s well worth your time to peruse his photostream and ogle the magnificent miniatures he’s created, such as the scene below of Alice’s rendezvous with a certain infamous hatter of dubious sanity, followed by a terrific mountain temple.
