Some of my Bricks



Well, well, well;
people collect all sorts of funny things, and I have a collection of BRICKS with Names on!
For no reason at all, just for something different!


Following are some pictures of what I have so far - more coming as I get time.
When I get organised, I will put in a link that will give you more info about the brick, about the people behind the brick, and the company concerned. And yes, I still want more BRICKS!
