Set the color and styles for your patio chairs

Are you one of those people that likes a little bit of variety in your life? While you may like the looks of a lot of things in your home, you regularly move things around to give it a new, fresh look? Is it a monthly or seasonally habit to change things up to suit the current time of year? Well if this is the case you can also employ this type of concept in your backyard with your patio furniture and mix it up as well to make it all look new again. While you may not want to have a bunch of different sets of patio furniture stacked up in the garage that you can rotate out as you feel like you need to change, you can make simple small changes that will make the area look new again. One of the easiest ways to do this is by having interchangeable outdoor cushions.

When you think about it, it's really the cushions that set the color and styles for your patio chairs, isn't it? Sure they can have a plastic, resin, metal or wood base that gives a foundation color and theme of the piece of furniture, but its those cushions and whatever design or colors they hold that set the color and style you're looking for to dress up your backyard.

Many of today's patio furniture cushions are made in standard shapes and sizes. This is good for a couple of reasons. First if something happens to one of your cushions, it makes them easy to replace. But secondly, in order to spice things up in your backyard, this means you can have interchangeable cushions or even cushion covers that let you change the colors and tones of your backyard furniture anytime you want to.

To make sure that you're getting the right thing, you should take some measurements before you go shopping for interchangeable cushions. Measure all of the dimensions of the cushions you currently have and write them down. This means the height width, and thickness of the pieces.

Now you have to decide if you want to have a whole different set of cushions or if you just want to have replaceable cushion covers that can slide over the cushions you currently have. Part of this may come down to being a matter of storage. Cushions are going to take up a lot more space than cushion covers. But at the same time, if you find a set of cushions in a design that you really love, you may not care how much space it takes to put one set of cushions away while you show off the others.

The final thing to think about before you purchase interchangeable cushions or new cushion covers is your environment. Make sure whatever materials you choose are prepared to stand up to the type of environment you live in whether that means sun resistance, water resistance or even resistance to the cold, biting winter weather.

You want your logo to dress

A logo is your business's identity. Pretend your logo is a person, and you are "dressing" it to represent your company. If you owned an art studio would you dress your logo like a lawyer? If you owned a law firm would you dress ED Hardy your logo like a surf-shop owner?

You want your logo to dress and look a certain way when meeting with potential clients and customers. Logos should give off a certain persona/attitude that your company values and wants to embody. For example, lets say you are a dentist and your logo was out passing around brochures and flyers to drum up more business. Imagine if your logo didn't shower, had messy hair, wrinkly clothes, was rude and overall not what you wanted to convey to possible new clients. Would people take your business seriously?

I recommend that you "dress" your logo to impress! Your logo should be carefully "styled" to match your company's specific needs. For example: if you own an advertising agency and want to show that you are creative, edgy and have fresh ideas... you wouldn't stuff yourself in a business suit. Rather, you might consider a clever "spin" on traditional business attire with a bold "pop" of color, maybe some unique accessories with an overall fresh new look that isn't sold at department stores... maybe something with a more individual look that will grab the right attention.

Think about your logo, is it dressed Prom Gowns appropriately for your business? Might it need a makeover? Are its clothes out of date? Does it need a new look? Does is match? Is it wearing wrinkly, stained or dirty clothes? Would it stand out in a crowd? Does it need a "pop" of color? Maybe an accessory? A new hair do? If you ask yourself these evening Gowns questions and truly envision your logo as a person styled to represent your company, you might find that it is time for a little makeover.

Chantilly/Tiffany cats are ideally medium in their personality

Chantilly/Tiffany is a feline breed that originated in United States. It goes either by the name of Chantilly or Tiffany and was first discovered in the late 1960's by a breeder in New York. The breed was not immediately recognized and it was only after these cats were found to be occurring naturally in Canada, that Chantilly or Tiffany cats were formally recognized as a breed.

Physical make-up of the Chantilly/Tiffany resembles that of a semi-foreign feline. Body is medium in size, length and musculoskeletal structure. Weight is in the range of six to ten pounds, with males being slightly larger than females. Coat is silky and lustrous with chocolate being the predominant color. Other colors also occur and include blue, cinnamon, fawn and lilac. Lack of an undercoat means there is very little shedding. A prominent neck ruff and plumed tail adds to the cat's beauty. Face has a prominent bony structure, with bright and slightly oval eyes and broad based ears.

A unique feature of Chantilly or Tiffany cats is that they are slow in growth and maturation. They are fully developed by age two in contrast to most other breeds who mature at half that age. Mothers take long in labor and subsequently in weaning, with the young cats developing their full coat by twenty four months. As a result, often regular breeders make Chantilly/Tiffany kittens available for adoption not before fourteen weeks of age.

Chantilly/Tiffany cats are ideally medium in their personality and attitude. They are playful though not quite demanding. Their single layered coat does not develop matts, though their somewhat tufted ears require periodic swabbing for wax. Overall, these adorable felines are quite healthy and loving animals. They are peaceful and go along well with other pets and family members, though they usually distance themselves from strangers.

Louis Comfort Tiffany with Tiffany and Company began producing b

Louis Comfort Tiffany with Tiffany and Company began producing beautiful stained glass lamps in the early 20th century. Over that time many styles of lamp bases and colorful shades were produced these have become highly valued pieces for collectors. When purchasing an antique lamp you should consider more than just the name on the lamp to decide if the piece is fairly priced and worthy of investment. Below are a few considerations for beginning collectors to keep in mind.

* The quality of the painting on reverse painted tiffany lamp shades has a big impact on the value of the lamp itself. Two shades may be of the same pattern, but can vary greatly in price based on quality. No two stained glass lamps are exactly the same!

* Artist signed lamps do generally have more worth to collectors, but these are not always the best investment lamps for a collector. An unsigned stained glass lamp can have better overall quality and overall appearance, raising value substantially for the piece even without the signature from the artist. While on the flip side a signed piece may not be constructed as well, and have less vibrant color bringing the quality down as well as the value. Also a signed stained glass lamp may not be authentic, forged signatures can and do occur in the antiques market so buyer beware. Consider any purchase carefully and inspect each lamp objectively.

* When collecting try to stick with shades and bases from the same company. Though you can mix and match shades and bases from several potential makers, collectors tend to prefer only one company per lamp.

* On metal lamp bases with the surface finish in the patina style ensure this is in top condition. The patina process is used on metal bases to create a aged bronze look on the material using a special treatment process. If over polished, the value of the lamp decreases and a new patina is expensive to get for the lamp base. This new patina will also not fully restore the value of the base so ensure the original is in top shape in the first place.

* If purchasing a Tiffany lamp for investment purposes, buy the best lamp you can afford. Lower end more available lamps do not appreciate as quickly as a higher quality more unique lamp will.

* Be wary of buying stained glass lamps at auctions, especially when you do not get an opportunity to thoroughly examine the piece beforehand. These are prime opportunities to sell forgeries as well as lower quality lamps at higher prices to buyers who are in the mood to buy.

* Avoid damaged lamps or lamps which have undergone repairs. These lamps are not good investments as they tend to always remain well below the value of undamaged lamps.

Collecting Tiffany lamps can be a very fun and rewarding hobby as well as a potential investment for your family. Take your time before purchasing a lamp to inspect the piece and if at all possible purchase from a reputable dealer.
