Ribbon Lampshade

Siding That Sparkles

When your "last-forever" vinyl or aluminum siding begins to show wear, don't jump to the costly conclusion that you have to tear it off and replace it. Give it a coat of paint instead. Vinyl and aluminum siding may be guaranteed to protect your home for 50 years, but nobody guarantees how these materials will look that far down the road.

A Moving Experience

Katie walked sleepily down the stairs. This was not the bubbly, energetic morning person I had known for the past 10 years. She gave me a big hug and curled up next to me on the sofa. Tears welled up in her eyes. "Mom, I don't want to go to school," she said. "Can I stay home and help you unpack boxes?" I gently returned her hug and reminded her that we were only going to visit the school today.

Gardening on the Side

When the gunmetal-gray clouds first parted, the shaft of light from the heavens lit up only her narrow side yard as if to present it to her on a golden platter. It was as though someone-- or something-- was trying to tell her: This is the place: Here. Garden here.

THE HIDDEN GARDEN

Judith Siegel gave herself two presents when she turned the narrow yard behind her house into a hidden garden (above). One was an inviting outdoor room, cozy with color, fragrance, and the sound of water. The other was enough privacy to dine on the patio, or just relax with coffee and a newspaper-- for a while. Judith laughs. "I can't stay there and read because I jump up and start gardening."

Piece by piece decorating

Being bitten by the antiquing bug means bringing things home, one by one, year after year. You need moderation, an eye for mixing, and a knack for display to keep a home's accumulation from looking like an overstuffed antiques shop. Patty and Bob Laufer have pulled it off. Though they've spent years of weekends and vacations rooting out country collectibles, they show off their much-loved quilts and other finds with restraint. "I'm very turned off by too much," says Patty, who avoids abundant displays of any one type. "I want my house to look like a house, not a museum."
