5 links & a video + thank you!

Thank you so much for the over 1,000 comments!! I waited a bit because I know the comment number counts my own comments as well, but I think I’m well beyond that point. You’re all so fantastic and each comment helps keep this blog and me going! And it’s about time I post a round-up of links. The last time I did a link round-up, I think I posted a few too many links because I didn’t get too many comments so I’ll keep it much shorter this time around.

* A Wonderful Fairy Bedroom – Can you imagine having a bedroom like this as a little girl? So adorable and full of imagination! (via Have a dream and make it real.)


* Do You Have 60 Seconds to Save Seals? – An infographic detailing the numbers behind Canada’s annual commercial seal hunt. Feel free to click through to see a bigger image. (Image clickable straight to source: PETA)

* Mast Brothers Chocolate – It’s no secret that I love chocolate so this post by Brandi had me dreaming of chocolate (Mast Brothers Chocolate in its brilliant wrapping to be exact!). I highly recommend watching the whole video as well. If ever I see this chocolate, I won’t hesitate for a taste. It may be a bit pricey, but the video shows that quality is above quantity. Thank you Brandi for sharing!


* This cute hedgehog pencil holder – I’m pretty sure this would make coloring extra fun for anyone, not just kids. (via Have a dream and make it real.) (Image clickable straight to source: Rakuten)

* Wolves no Longer Endangered – “Wolves in five states will no longer be protected under the Endangered Species Act.” I wrote about this issue just a few days ago and I’m so sad to see that President Barack Obama signed the bill to delist wolves.


Can you believe this is a cell phone commercial? I’m sure it took so much work to set up, but with over three million views, I’d say it’s worth it. Make sure you have your speakers up! (via Econesting)

That commercial is incredible — and so complicated!
And I think it’s awful that seals are being hunted like this. I have feeling about interfering with long standing traditions about the Inuit (I need more information about that first), but there’s no reason for commercial hunting at all. There just isn’t.

I saw that hedgehog on Pinterest a few days ago and just about died. So cute! Also, can I just reaffirm (in celebration of 1000+ comments and all) how awesome your blog is. It’s quickly grown to one of my very favorites.

Oh my that bedroom! I would have looved that as a kid. I still would love it! :)
I’m all for high quality chocolate. The kind I buy is so ridiculously expensive. But it tastes soo much better.
That commercial was awesome! It makes me wonder how on earth someone figured out to do that and make it sound so perfectly. People amaze me.

Gloria – I know! I bet her dreams are the best!

Brandi – All of the actions I’ve posted are to end the commercial seal hunt in Canada which wouldn’t affect the Inuit people at all (it would actually help them!).

Kayla – Thank you!! That makes me so happy! One of your favorite blogs? Wow! : )

Haylee – I’m not quite sure I’d fit in the bed or else I’d be all for it, too, ha! What kind of chocolate do you buy/eat? I can only imagine that it took a ton of test tries in a studio somewhere.

girl in oslo – So true on both counts!

allyn – I love chocolate any day.. good or bad. It’s a necessity to (just about) each day! And hey.. can totally share the hedgehog. : )

Wow! First off, that commercial was pretty cool! Had I not read your little caption at the bottom, I would have never guessed it was for a cell phone commercial! It was pretty awesome though! I kinda want to go do something like that now!! Do you know if the cell phone (the outter part of it) is actually made of wood??

As for the fairy tale bedroom! I would have LOVED to have a bedroom like that when I was a little girl! That would have been awesome!! I’m tempted to do something like that for when I have kids! lol

I want, I want, I WANT one of those pencil holders!! How adorable are those!?! I wonder how they made them!!! They are just adorable. I wanna get one for my kids for when they get older!

And the chocolate!! Mmmm, that makes me want chocolate now!

This was an awesome post :) Just had to find time to be able to look through all the links! :)

Misty – I looked it up and the phone is encased in wood!

If only we’d know about rooms like that when planning how to decorate our own! :)
