As Seen on T.V. - You want my body?

No I haven't lost my mind...I'm not really asking if you want my body, LOL!

Chips ahoy wants to know if you want his body, in this commercial that is just tooo funny...pretty old...but still funny! Anyway as he slides across the floor, trying to impress his lady friend, he is sitting in a chair inspired by the Egg Chair by Arne Jacobson. I've posted this chair many times on my sight but another time can't hurt! Check out the commercial it is too darn funny.

Click here to check pricing and availability of authentic chairs...more budget friendly versions of the chair are available, but to get a deal you better shop around.

Bring the Spring

Today marked the first day of spring, so that means it's time to spruce up your decor with some spring color!

Pantone has announced the "it" colors of Spring 2008 and although they relate their colors to fashion, I've found home decor from Ikea in all 10 colors. With that many options you're sure to find at least one color you can incorporate to bring in the spring!

Last year I talked about how easy and inexpensive it could be to change a few accessories each season, or even pick your favorite season, and change out things in your decor to renew the look and feel of a space.I also showed some pictures of my "spring update" Ikea is a great place to buy those accessories, they have great prices, fun colors, and they are WORLDWIDE! You can't always have items shipped to you, but check for an Ikea near you, believe me the deals are worth the drive.

The above items can provide a change in your space from something as small as a candle, or as large as a sofa; with prices ranging from $3.99 to $599.99. Check Ikea out and start your spring update!

Highlighting Howie Green (and blue, and pink, and yellow, etc.)

While browsing online one night I came across this fabulous site, full of hand painted pop art and infused with culture and color! Needless to say I was blown away and I found myself moving from one painting to the next always assuring myself with each click that I would surely find my favorite...but of course they all ended up being my favorite!

This excellent work I speak of is by none other than artist Howie Green. His artwork has been noted as "An eye candy pop art wonderland, with an accent on fun", and I couldn't think of a better way to describe it. His imagination combined with his perception of art in everyday life, and the strokes of his paintbrush has earned him over 40 awards. Howie has had a long prosperous career creating murals from colleges to restaurants, libraries to museums, all the while he has continued to be fresh and innovative. I urge everyone to check his website and fall in love the way I have.

I had to choose some of his work to highlight so I chose to fuse my love of music with my love of art (not much of a stretch lately) below are some classic album covers that Green has converted into pop art.
