I will try to cover all new things coming out, as only I will think they are interesting to show 🙂 So, lets start today with something pretty, something useful and something fun:-)

Though little girls suppose to play with Barbie dolls I’ve always prefered LEGO. And I think I still have my box full of colourfull blocks somewhere here. That’s why I was very pleased to hear that LEGO is coming u with new brand – LEGO Architecture.
