Robotic Dining Room

My son looooooves building robots, so we have a lot of them in our life right now - in the car, in his room, in the bathroom...basically everywhere.  The other day I asked him to move a whole army of robots off of our stairs and find a place elsewhere in the house so that we didn't keep tripping on them on the stairs.  Look where they ended up!  All the way around the dining room.  I couldn't have decorated it better myself.  :)

I've been meaning to post about that art for a while now but haven't gotten organized.  They are all photographs that I took during our European travels, but modified with photo editing tools for all kinds of cool interpretations...impressionist, etc. similar to what I posted here.

He's even got one incognito behind the curtain, guarding the french doors leading to the deck - very thorough!  
The vessel is from a flea market in Munich and the branches are from our back yard.

My husband and I bought these sepia photographs at an art festival on the bridge shown on the left in Prague in 2001.  I love them as much today as they first day we laid eyes on them.
They are moody, sultry, beautiful, mysterious - just like Prague!
(I guess the robots like them too and don't want anyone taking them)

They say that love makes a home...or, in this case, a love of robots.  :)  

How do your loved ones add to your home decor?

I love that you let your son decorate too, his robots are great! Dylan dog is the only one who helps me decorate with his toys and they're everywhere. I don't move them since he remembers where he left them. Love your pictures too and your vessel, fabulous!

Love your art. The robot "sculptures" certainly add a bit of atmosphere to the space, too! Happy Wednesday! XOXO

Oh my goodness, Barbara, the sepia photographs and the photographs you had made are stunning. You really are so talented.
I have to laugh out loud at the robots. I have a grown son, but he did the same thing with his toys when he was young. They can be quite creative!
Happy Wednesday.

I love the robots. Yes, they are protecting you. Ethan (1st grandson), now 13 (how did that happen) just stopped making robots a couple of years ago.. I love creative (little) boys who love to play. Have fun.

I say leave the robots right there - they could become real conversation pieces! Too sweet. x Sharon

You have to love this about boys.. right? I miss those days as my little boy is now 23! I agree with Sharon.. just leave them :)

Barbara, I'm sure you have SO many gorgeous photos with all the traveling you've done. It's a challenge to figure how what to do with it all isn't it? :)

Hope you are enjoying the great weather!

Barbara, I have been there. I have two boys. We have had skateboards to roller-blades decorating my house. Now I have a bike in my living room. The bike belongs to the hubby...they never change! Boys at heart....Gotta love them.

Oh my gosh....this is hysterical!!! I can TOTALLY see my 8 year old doing this! We have little LEGO characters everywhere. And, they hurt your foot if you're not looking!!!

Love your talented little robot builder!
