Winter Wonderland with Friends Animals

LEGO Friends animals have always been a special part of the theme, and this creation by Deborah Higdon illustrates just how friendly and expressive they are on display.

The classic winter snow-covered tree in a woodland setting surrounded by animals she built as bookends is a wonderful use for a peaceful scene.

MOC: The Horsemen Townsquare


Denil has created another intricately detailed scene with this MOC of Horsemen Town 
Square -- whether it's fictional or really exists some where in the world, 
it could easily be a part of Heartlake City.


Some of the buildings incorporate a bit of Friends sets' aspects blended into unique 
designs -- while all flowing with the classic LEGO Friends style.

It's hard to decide which structure or scene on this huge creation is most appealing, 
as each one has been tailored to a specific activity.

Perhaps one of these is denizens is Evie, the founder of Heartlake City, 
who discovered the spring that flows into what is now Heart Lake.
Here is Stephanie dressed as Evie in the 2015 Halloween costume contest.


Heartlake Supermarket & Cupcake Cafe Modular

Two new sets offering hangout spots with lots of foodie details have been combined into one modular MOC by Karen kjm161 using inspiration from both Heartlake Supermarket and Heartlake Cupcake Cafe.
 The front entrance has lovely tiled sidewalk and enticing bread display in the curved display window.  These curvy windows have become very popular in Heartlake City building style.
With the roof taken off (since it is a modular building) you get to enjoy the Deli Counter with all the great pieces and elements in the LEGO food category.
The back side shows the stairs leading to the Cupcake Cafe above the market.  It's nice to see a 4-walled creation with a roof -- considering most Friends-style official sets have half-roofs and no back -- to allow for play access.
This MOC would fit well in any City layout and the details do make it somewhat playable -- or at least fun to move around the neat elements.  The back door sidewalk tile matches the front.  Although it's built for realism, the few whimsical touches ~ such as the Elves wind element seat cushion on the bench by the door, make it even more fun to view!
