Rough materials, but a smooth-working house

The ranch house isn't a new style. It's as old as the branding iron, and as graceful as the long brown grass of the range.

How to make a bedspread

You can dress up your bed with a spread that's tailor-made for it. Choosing a fabric is the first important step. Be sure you get one that launders well and won't wrinkle readily. Cottons are usually most satisfactory. The new metallic, nontarnishable threads now add a touch of glamour to plain materials. Give your spread a professional look with a fringe that will wash as safely as the spread itself.
