FREE LEGO® NEXO KNIGHTS Robin's Mini Fortrex with purchases of $50 or more!

My son recently discovered the Nexo Knights line of Legos and loves them.  For proof you need look no further than my kitchen table, where some Nexo Knights are currently involved in a complicated battle with a spaceship:

Apparently even Nexo Knights should love their enemies, lol.
Actually, I really like the Nexo Knights series too.  They are cleverly designed and seem sturdier than some of the other Lego sets we've amassed (won't mention any names except for Kai, Cole, Jay and Zane).

Anyway, if you are looking for a great gift idea for any Lego-loving child out there, click through and check it out.  If you're not in the market for Nexo Knights, I just found this cute little fella and I know my boys would love him for Valentine's Day:


Happy Shopping!

My Moody Foyer

Do you love the look of all light, white, misty interiors?  I do.  It is so photogenic, so pleasing to the eye, and someday I may live in a space like that.  But for right now, as much as I love it, it isn't always "me."

Dark and White Foyer Paint

For now, "me" is a little bit moody.  And also so is my decorating style, ha!  Meet my moody foyer:

I love the way that the white provides a nice canvas for my equally moody oil painting:

And some family pictures:

One of the things that makes this work for me is the sheen of the darker paint; it is a slightly reflective satin, so even a color this dark bounces light around rather than sucks it up.  You can kind of see the sheen here:

I painted the foyer about a year and a half ago, but I don't think I ever showed you.  I wanted to live with it first.  The longer I do, the more I love it.  It soothes me to walk through this space, and I love the drama of it as people enter my home.

So what about you?  Are you light and airy?  Or dark and moody?  Or can you be both?
