STYLE IN THE MAKING

Mother Nature has come up with the perfect image for painted borders and trims-- freshly fallen leaves. Scatter their crisp images across towels, fabrics, rugs, and walls by brushing leaves with paint and pressing them onto your surface. The technique is so easy-- done with fresh or glycerined leaves that are mounted on foam-core board-- it's bound to bring out the budding artist in everyone.

A Study in Contrasts

It's 1:10 p.m. The girls in Mrs. Zobel's class pick up their notebooks and file out quietly. A few minutes later a mass of boys charges in. The fourth grade at Westridge Elementary in West Des Moines, Iowa, is trying single-gender education for one class period a day. Mrs. Zobel teaches math to all the boys. Down the hall, Mrs. Vukovich has the girls.

Where Hobbies Happen

Hobby is such an inadequate word. It conjures images of children building models or adults collecting stamps. But hobbies are so much more. They are consuming interests that can no longer be confined to the basement or the kitchen table. Passion needs more room than that.

The many ways daffodils say spring

Daffodils are like the gardener's favorite pup-- they are so eager to please. They grow tall, they grow short. They bloom in sunny meadows and under towering shade trees. They look swell in formal plantings, in informal drifts, and forced indoors in pots. They need next to no care, and bloom year after year after year. And they come in countless sure-to-please variations: nodding heads and perky ones, large cups and little dainty ones, single flowers and double, sweetly scented and subtle, bold colors, pastels, bicolors... The reliable daffodil seems to do everything but fetch your slippers.

Small Changes

Self-proclaimed "junkers," Nancy and Terry Ingram have always filled their Tulsa ranch house to the brim with their treasured finds. But finally tiring of the clutter and the upkeep, they found themselves moving toward a simpler look. "With fewer accessories, we could actually see the furniture," she says. "Then, we realized we needed to update that, too." With some editing here and slipcovering there, the two were able to pare down, style up, and get the new look they longed for without starting over-- or spending a fortune.

The woods run through it

Earl and Carolyn Palmer's vintage '70s home in Portland, Oregon, began life with a split personality: warm and rustic out side, boxy and cheerless inside. It also was out of step with the Palmers' lifestyle, which revolves around lively get-togethers with their children. A savvy update set things right, yielding family-friendly living spaces and I giving a warm, woodsy feel to every room in the house.
