Library of Love... Pug Love

Ok, so I mainly like this picture because there is a pug in it, but how fascinating are the rainbow of library books in the background??

Mr. Narwhal, the enchanting Unicorn of the Sea

I didn't know what a narwhal was until the 15th billion time I was watching Elf. You see Mr. Narwhal when Buddy is leaving the North Pole and beginning his adventure to New York City.

Mr. Narwhal is the one who says, "Bye, Buddy. Hope you find your dad."

I was struck by this enchanting unicorn of the sea and didn't know if it was a real creature or make believe, so I googled it!

This is what I found on wikipedia:

The narwhal is a medium-sized toothed whale that lives year-round in the Arctic. One of two species of whale in the Monodontidae family, along with the Beluga whale, the narwhal males are distinguished by a characteristic long, straight, helical tusk extending from their upper left jaw. Found primarily in Canadian Arctic and Greenlandic waters rarely south of 65°N latitude, the narwhal is a uniquely specialized Arctic predator. In the winter, it feeds on benthic prey, mostly flatfish, at depths of up to 1500 m under dense pack ice.[3] Narwhal have been harvested for over a thousand years by Inuit people in Northern Canada and Greenland for meat and ivory and a regulated subsistence hunt continues to this day. While populations appear stable, the narwhal has been deemed particularly vulnerable to climate change due to a narrow geographical range and specialized diet.[4]

It's back! Ice Blue Shampoo + many more originals from The Body Shop

I cannot believe it, Ice Blue Shampoo, Fuzzy Peach, Dewberry, Banana Shampoo, Passion Fruit Cleansing Gel! I can small them now as my eyes roll back. These were some of my faves from about 10 years ago that The Body Shop had discontinued a long time ago until now! I cannot even tell you how excited I am to run out and get one of each. I used to buy these products when I was in 5th grade and I wouldn't ant to use them because I was so afraid of running out, a little weird I know... this time I will be sure to take advantage and stock up because who knows how long these beauties will be around for!

You can find them here at The Body Shop's website.

My Etsy Shop is slowly growing...

Check out my little shop, still a work in progress. Let me know what you think! The stationery featured here is for a "Great Gatsby" themed Wedding. The photos were supplied to me from my client.
