Making exclamations in French about feminine objects

First here is a short review of Leçon 4-- using "quel":
To make an exclamation in French about an object, the French use a form of the word "quel" Remember with masculine nouns we use "quel"
Example = Quel magazine intéressant! (What an interesting magazine)

Formula for feminine French nouns:
Quelle + feminine noun

Examples
Quelle image! = What an image!
Quelle vie! = What a life!

Here are some additional phrases with Quelle that you may find very useful in blogging:
Quelle horreur! = How horrible!
Quelle idée! = What an idea!
Quelle misère! = What misery!
Quelle coincidence! = What a coincidence!
Quelle catastrophe! = What a disaster!

Obviously, you may want to add an adjective (describing word) with your explanation.
List of easy adjectives once again:
adorable, agréable (nice, pleasant), artistique, bête (dumb,silly, stupid),bizarre (weird, strange, odd), chic, classique, comique (funny/comical), drôle (funny), fantastique, grave (serious),
incroyable (unbelieveable), logique (logical), magnifique, populaire,rasoir (boring) ridicule, romantique, stupide, unique

Formula for adding an adjective:

Quelle + feminine noun + adjective
The formula is also the same for masucline nouns!
Quel + masculine noun + adjective

Examples
Quelle chambre romantique! = What a romantic (bed)room!
Quelle coiffure unique et bizarre! = What a unique and odd hairstyle!
Quelle maison chic! = What a stylish house!
Quelle vue magnifique! = What a magnificent view!

Roll call! For today's lesson, I am taking roll! Who is attending class? Who is playing hooky??? You must leave a comment for me to know your are attending!

For all of my over-achievers, you may leave an exclamation about the last image in this post! Soyez créatifs! (Be creative!)
