case closed

Make a case against plain pillows and boring bolsters by covering them with colorful, inexpensive, and seasonal napkins. It takes minimal (or even no) sewing skills to tie, zip, lace, and button linens over existing pillows. Look for napkins that come in standard sizes and interesting fabrics and patterns. If the napkin is sheer or the pillow underneath will peek out, make sure the pillow is pretty. For other designs, an uncovered pillow form is fine.

Pet Stops

If cats and dogs could talk, they'd have simple requests-- a little food and water, some playful exercise, and lots of love. Thoughtful design might not be high on their list, but that doesn't mean they won't favor a house planned with their special needs in mind. If you have pets, you're sure to appreciate the amenities these homeowners added for their four-legged friends.

Meant-to-Be Front Porch

After four years of telling friends they lived in the "ugly yellow house on the corner," Rita and Bill Houston's family knew it was time for a change. Built in 1945, their Palos Heights, Illinois, residence was typical for tract houses of its time-- right down to the bland yellow aluminum siding, the gray shingles, and the concrete stoop. But, as Rita says, "The house was just screaming for a front porch."

Selecting a Summer Camp

Some kids hear reveille at the crack of dawn during their summer camp. But 16-year-old Amanda Shaw heard the revving engine of a NASCAR stock car outside the bunk area at Atlanta Motor Speedway. She was at Race Camp, a summer camp designed for kids who want to become race-car drivers. "We got to drive twice a day," says Amanda, who hails from Ooltewah, Tennessee. "I was voted the best driver of my session."

Water Water Everywhere ...

Too many of us are missing out on an important nutrient. It's not a food. It's not a vitamin or mineral. But without it, vitamins and minerals-- in fact, all the elements of food and nutrition-- can't do their work. This overlooked nutrient is readily available, often free, and easy to take. The powerful player here is water, and most of us aren't drinking the eight 8-ounce glasses recommended daily for good health.

Sometimes a garden is both a refuge in the present and a memory of the past-- a place that is something and that means something. When you are in Mitsuko and Andrew Collver's cool, calm, and collected garden, you are also transported to other times and other places, sharing the quietude of the garden with distant friends.

By its nature, a summer home is a relaxing place. Maybe it has something to do with breezy screen porches, mismatched silverware, or just the idea of getting away. But summer is short-- so why not enjoy your retreat spring, fall, and winter too? Playing in the fresh-fallen leaves or snow is a renewal of its own.
