          This is an incredibly flat 5x7 rug with almost no pile. The weave that does exist in the rug is extremely tight. This does mean that it sits flat on the floor and is very easy to vacuum. It has a good feel, and a surprisingly soft touch for being so thin. The back has a vinyl layer attached, and is sewn to the edges.
          I would be hard pressed to see how you could easily get a run in this rug. It should last you a while.
          The rug has strong colors, along with a purposeful slightly faded/distressed look. This could be good or bad depending on your preference. I happen to think it adds a touch of class. It fits nicely if you want a more distinguished and authentic look.
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Great Accent, Looks Great

          A great, and very bright night light
          Feel: Very rubbery and squishy, kind of like the robot from the movie Big Hero 6
          Lights up nice and even; bright enough to light up a room. However, it might be a bit too bright if it's right next to a child's bed at night.
          Easy to change colors between the following with a simple tap:
          1) White
          2) Red
          3) Green
          4) Blue
          5) Slow-cycling-rainbow
          Off
          Comes with a USB charging cord.
          The light seems to last a very long time on a charge. It's good to know that there won't be any money wasted on batteries!
          Pros: Easy to Use, Motion-Activated, Nice Design
          Cons: too bright

          Faux fur is all the rage now. This faux fur bean bag is soft to the touch and stylish, perfect for any room. Use it as a seat for company in your living room or keep it all to yourself in the bed room for a comfortable place to nap with the pets. You can also get it for your kid's room, but you might find yourself using it more than them. This faux fur bean bag is going to fly off the shelves, so get yours soon. Color: Pink.

          Right off the bat you need to know that this bean bag chair is HUGE. It totally swallows up an 8 year old, and is plenty large enough for an adult and their child. This is great, but it also means that it takes up a boat load of space. It is also surprisingly heavy, and cumbersome to move. Make sure you have plenty of room for this beast.
          The instructions indicate to regularly shake and adjust the foam for maximum comfort, as the foam settles. This makes it less of a bean-bag, and more of a sofa. Yet as mentioned earlier, that is difficult because of it's size and weight.

          When it comes to comfort, however, this bag is fantastic. There are no beans in it, instead opting for large foam chunks. It feels like your favorite sofa chair, yet is malleable into the form that supports you best.
          The cover can be removed in order to wash the fur, if necessary.

          The Classic Swag is a handmade tied bundle of live mixed greens, made of fir, cedar and pine. It displays a hand-tied red velvet bow and real natural pinecones. The use of swags is only limited to your imagination. Easily add decorations as desired. Wintergreens stay fresh in cool climates, in warmer regions they may dry but will maintain its look for the holiday season. To keep wintergreens fresh use Wilt Pruf initially or periodically mist with water. Door hanger not included.

          On the upside, these greens are beautiful, aromatic, and fresh. They look lovely, and come with a large red bow and two pine cones.
          The major problem is that these sparse greens came in a gargantuan box, meant for a large wreath. So this huge box arrives, and you're expecting something grand. And instead you get a few cuts of tree branches in the box. Quite disappointing.
          I could see this as reasonable for someone that is nowhere near a store or a Christmas tree lot, living out in the middle of nowhere. However, for everyone else, it's much more efficient to just drive down to a tree lot and grab some fresh scraps for free. I can't see how i could recommend this to anyone, especially Read More

          Thin on the top - akin to a wine glass. Bottom heavy, so they won't tip over, however they are a bit awkward to hold, as the base is so heavy compared to the top. If you were to knock one of these glasses over, you're all but guaranteed a shattered glass.

          Answer: 
          Versabond is a VERY strong thin-set in my experience. As long as the vinyl is stable, and securely attached to the floor beneath it, the tiles will stick to the surface.

          Answer: 
          "All" is relative. Most is probably a better term to use. There can be residue left over, but there can't be large channels and gulleys, as the tiles will not be able to sit evenly. The rule of thumb is, as long as your new tiles are going to be HIGHER than the remaining mortar, you'll be fine. But remember, the cleaner the surface, the easier the install, and the less thin-set you'll use.
