Here in the US, the turkey has now been carved, the parade has concluded, and your relatives have sufficiently inquired as to why you still don’t have a girlfriend (I’m focusing on LEGO, obviously!). But that can mean only one thing. The Christmas season is headed right for us! I find it best to ease into the festive spirit, and what better way to do that than with this kitchen scene by Sarah Beyer. The use of lighting here is exquisite, and reminds me of midnight snacks in my parents’ kitchen from years gone by. And the scene feels clean while still remaining interesting, with a bottle of bright green dish detergent next to the sink, the tree set up in the corner, and the table with baking remnants upon it. But don’t forget the gingerbread abode resting on the counter, made with the clever use of some hinge pieces. The only thing that’s missing is some Mannheim Steamroller playing in the background.
