Ghost chairs - not just for Halloween

Have you ever heard of "ghost chairs"?   No, it's not some Halloween goodie, they are reinvented classic Louis XV armchairs designed by Philippe Starck and they're extremely popular right now.  They call them Ghost Louis chairs because the varied lines and formal geometry of the original Louis XV chairs have been transformed into a single form of translucent or opaque black or white injection-molded polycarbonate.  Here's a photo of a Ghost Louis Chair.
And here's a picture of the original Louis XV chairs that I believe the ghost chairs were modeled after.
I was thinking that this type of chair (the ghost chair, not the original) would be good in the spare bedroom since the room is so small.   This chair can be put somewhere and be almost invisible to the eye.   I found one at stackchairsdepot.com and it is perfect.   Look at my Crystall Chair here.   I just love it!    Here are a couple of pictures of it in the room.  

Isn't it cool?   And think of the options for Halloween decorating.   Just kidding!  I'm still trying to decide what to do with the desk.   I want to paint it or something but I'm not sure what just yet, so it'll stay as it is for now.

I've been dragging out the fall decorations now that the weather has turned a little crisp.   I'll post some pictures later this week.   Happy Fall!!!

Jamie Cooks It Up!

Dear hubby is back at school this week so I've had some free time on my hands.   Thus the 2 posts this week.    Anywho...I was looking at this wonderful blog Jamie Cooks It Up! and I thought that I would share it with you.    Go to Jamie Cooks It Up! by clicking HERE and you will see all kinds of wonderful recipes.   Jamie is very funny and walks you through the prep on all of her recipes.   And does she ever have some wonderful recipes.   YES!!   Here are some samples:

Sugar cookie bars (easier than cut out cookies and just as pretty)

Healthy corn muffins

Chocolate candy bar cake

York Peppermint Patty Brownies

Macaroni Grill Bread

Oreo Bon Bons

And if you think her desserts look good, my gosh, her dinner recipes are just as wonderful.   We tried one of her side dish recipes, Baked Zucchini with Mozzarella.   Yum!!!

She has a ton of recipes on her blog.   Unique recipes.  Recipes that look fabulous and that make you say "I want to make that".  All nicely organized.   Go check her out.   As I was looking through her recipes, I was saying Oh, Karen would like this, Kim would like this one, Wendy would like this or I know Joni would like this one.    Let me know what you think of her recipes.  

Bye for now.
