Archie’s Island Chairs

Posted on | June 30, 2005 | Comments Off on Archie’s Island Chairs

I adore Archie’s Island Chairs! The delightful and colorful furniture is perfect for any backyard, garden, or porch. A set of Round Back Chairs would be splendid in my laid-back loft!

Archie’s furniture line includes various brightly colored lounge chairs, dining sets, and tables.

All the furniture is made of solid mahogany. Primed in alkyld enamel and finished with a marine enamel to give the furniture a shiny no-fade gloss.

The extra special wood and paint means Archie’s products don’t come cheap. The plus side: Your Round Back Chair ($450.00) will last a lifetime. I say, “Worth Every Penny!

Surf Blue, Mango, Bonfire are just a few of the 12 different colors that make Archie’s products so special. Explore Archie’s Island Chairs website to see all the different colors and furniture.

The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook

A little bit of sin? Magnolia Bakery in Greenwich Village, New York just divulged their top secret recipes. Try Magnolia Bakery’s Cookbook to make extraordinary cakes and pies reminiscent of your Grandma’s kitchen.

Magnolia’s Recipes Are Classics! Iced Molasses Cookies, Coconut Layer Cake, Pecan Pie, and Peanut Butter Ice Box Pie are just a few of Magnolia’s splendid treats!

I can’t resist Magnolia’s Vanilla Cupcakes (pg.60) with Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (pg.83). Making custom colors for your frosting adds the perfect homemade touch! I used a lot of red and just a little yellow foodcoloring to make my perfect shade of pink!

Idea: Make these cute cupcakes for a special party and your guests will be deliriously happy!
