Default Crumb blocks with unexpected block.....

My blocks are 6.5 inches. I have decided I want to add an unexpected block or blocks in among the crumbs. I'm thinking of a circle(s) in an unexpected color (think orange)or letters forming word(s). I am Gemini so this is totally expected of me. What do you think of my idea?

I think it's a great idea and a few months ago I started making some crumb blocks and I did just that by tossing in a few stray pinwheel blocks that I had leftover from another project.....
