The Man Next Door

Consoling thought for the holidays: Despite the way things are, the average American (who's around 30 years old) has 30 to 40 peaceful New Year's Days ahead of him. And your lucky little rascals have 60 or 70.

Is Your Home Well Framed?

Flat House: A low, rambling architectural effect is often charming, but it's also true that some houses look too long for their height. If this is your trouble, break up the long-drawn-out feeling by breaking the facade into several interesting units with tall plants enframing the doorway.

Revived From Middle Age

THERE comes a time in the life of every house when it's neither a gay young bungalow nor a venerated oldster. It's middleaged and drab and somehow shy in the company of more fortunate houses that are lived in by families who love and care for them. Architects and builders call it the "dangerous age" for a house-- the age when it can quickly crumble into a tired wreck or bloom as never before with the help of sympathetic remodeling.

Tomorrow You'll Be Seeing Things

WHEN Jones settles down for a comfortable evening with his paper, he squats under what his wife, bless her heart, calls a floor lamp, tho it's really nothing but an old-fashioned chandelier on a stick. On the neater models there's either a glass bowl under the bulb to hold kerosene that isn't there, or a tray to catch candle drippings.

Birthplace of GARDEN IDEAS Carmel-by-the-Sea

THAT money you're laying away in War Savings Bonds now will take you traveling one of these days when we finish Hitler. And perhaps you'll travel to California's Carmel-by-the-Sea. If you do, you're likely to come home and paint the garage doors blue, or start a fuchsia collection, or fill the front yard with bright red salvias. For that's what Carmel does to you-- it puts ideas into your head. Only you don't have to wait until you go there before you start using some of them. Some of them are right here.

How to Restore Old Furniture

THE secondhand dealer stood in my basement and shook his head mournfully over the collection of furniture that had been gathering there for the past seven years. It was a hoard of weird things I'd picked up in weak moments at auctions, leftovers from the mountain cabin, more discards from the family that moved out when we moved in.

A Small Home ON A Big Scale

MAYBE figures don't lie, but sometimes they're pretty misleading. The cold, hard figures say that the John Magnesses of Riverside, Connecticut, are living in a Bildcost Gardened Home that's only 24 feet square, not counting the attached garage. In over-all dimensions, that's a small house. You can turn around in it, but somersaults are definitely out.

Quilt TODAY

WE'RE quilt-making again-- and loving it! Maybe those hard-to-come-by items-- fuel and wool-- have inspired us. Or maybe it's just that we've discovered all over again what our pioneer great-grandmothers wisely knew all the time-- that working a quilt is the most fascinating of handcrafts, and that a beautiful quilt made by your own careful hands is a treasure for today and tomorrow.
