Parts I'd forgotten I had!

Last night, I decided to build #8781 The Castle of Morcia. It's been disassembled since a few months after I bought it in 2004. It and #8777 Vladek Encounter, #8799 Knight's Castle Wall, #8800 Vladek's Siege Engine, and #8877 Vladek's Dark Fortress have all been stored in 8877's box, in an number of Ziploc bags. I rebuilt 8877 a couple of years ago, but the others have been waiting. So when I dumped out the three bags that held, all mixed up, 8777, 8781, and8799, I saw a bunch of sand blue 1x2 and 2x4 bricks! I must have got them from the PAB wall, and I guessed I had substituted them into the castle to make it more blue. When I finished the castle, I found I had: 1x2 and 2x4 bricks in sand blue, 2x2 bricks and 2x3 plates in dark ("original") green, and 1x2 and 2x10 bricks in grey- as in, "old light grey"! I dumped them into a large PAB cup... and they didn't quite fill it. I wonder what else I must have put in the cup back then. Oh well: bonus LEGO! :)

    I occasionally find parts I forgot about in my various “miscellaneous” parts bins. I have them split up into small, medium, and big parts.

    Funny you should mention this as I just 'found' an old PAB tub stuffed with elements that I'd completely forgotten about. Must have filled it a couple of years back at least. Contents included 756 (!) trans-red 1 x 1 tiles and 530 trans-light blue gems, amongst others.

    ^Why do you need 530 gems??

    Because they fill in the nooks and crannies in an almost-full PAB cup! I don't know if I have 530 of them, but probably close to that.

    Useful for water effects in MOCs. And also because they fill in the nooks and crannies in an almost-full PAB cup! Together with trans-red 1 x 1 tiles....

    at least it's tiles. trans red studs would have been funny considering you get 10 extra in each set thanks to stud shooters now.

    I have a cup filled with old dog/wolf molds from a PaB wall some years ago. Also found my cache of goats as well (though from bricks and pieces, not PaB). I have a good idea of what I have now as I have been patiently sorting through all of my 'new' parts, but every once on a while I get a surprise

    Similar with me with trans light blue 1x1 round tiles.

    I have plenty of trans-red, trans-yellow and trans-orange 1x1 round plates I was going to us in a volcano MOC when I got out my dark ages but then realized it's a freaking volcano.
