LOVE the chess photo! I've recently become obsessed with playing chess! :) I'm not very good at it, but I do enjoy it! xoxo

Grew up playing backgammon with my dad but personally, I'm a Scrabble-holic. Just love it. My husband is a pool player and I just can't get into it.

Really love these photos!

Lindsay looked so much more healthy back then. She's not that bad now but could gain a little weight.

Love models playing board games!

Fabulous Finds Gal said...

I would love the ultimate set so we can teach our little one all the games. Lindsay is looking quite grown up in that pic!

Ooh that photo of Coco Rocha on the chess board is fabulous and the one of Lilo just makes me feel sad comparing the past and present her. Hehe is it just me, or does Carmen Kass look like a little granny in her photo?
