I think these would be sweet enough without the extra sugar AND corn syrup. Frozen treats are more refreshing anyway when they aren't super sweet.

@lesova - you could download the "Nightstand" app which stays on all night as long as it's charging. There is a sleep and wake timer so you can wake up to your music playing through the speakers or you can choose sounds like birds chirping, waves, rain, or whatever...fade in and out. And you can adjust the brightness by lightly touching the screen and dragging your finger up or down. It's amazing.

My cat would die from happiness if she could not only lay on my bed but peer out over the entire living space at the same time like in #6.

Number 4 is so dreamy. A simple space with an incredibly comfortable bed... *sigh*

My sister in law is making them nonstop recently and she was the first person I know of who makes and eats them in real life. BTW, FOTC4lyfe

I think it's super cute. I could probably put a clear coat over the whole thing.

My parents have a full set and every time I go over there I'm impressed all over again. They've had most of them for 10+ years and have been sharpened multiple times which seems to make them better than before. They recently bought a spatula spreader ( and use it for every single knife task in their kitchen.

Art? The "artist" put a bunch of wood and tacky wallpaper around a real piece of art and called it a day. I looked this statue up on Wikipedia and there obviously isn't any real cultural significance too it other than it's neat looking but I can't help but feel slightly offended.

I've been fawning over an Le Creuset 6 3/4 Cassis oven forever... but spending almost $300 makes me sick to my stomach. What if I don't use it?

But I had the same sinking feeling before buying a simply $25 on Lodge Cast Iron pan and i use that every single time I cook... I need to just suck it up.

But yeah, I would go larger and go oval.

Ya know... the comments here about using animal hide are so strange. They complain about using the fur of an animal that is butchered for it's meat as if this is a mink or something. I'd rather see cow hide being used than anything else because the fact is, those animals are going to be slaughtered... at least the hide isn't being tossed in the trash. It would be more offensive if the hide wasn't being used.

I could love the blue one. Sorry, but the pink one looks like a silicon sex toy. Eek.

Looks nice. I would caulk along the wall where the stairs meet it to make it look more finished.
