Q: I am a new bride, an immigrant who cannot take employment until I get my green card. I wish to spend time making our apartment nice. In my country, I learned to sew and make some handcrafts, but I need some ideas. Your newspaper stories often tell how to do pretty things. Perhaps you have ideas for me? A: Many, many ideas from many sources. One of my latest favorites is a new book ... [full story]

It's hard to imagine a world not colored by crayons - and Crayola crayons at that. What would we put on our fridge doors if not our preschoolers' crayon scribbles? Pencil or pen just wouldn't do it. And coloring books, where we learned to stay within the lines - would they even exist? And what would restaurants offer kids to keep them occupied while waiting for their food? Yet before 1903 that's how the world ... [full story]

Q: During a recent trip to England, I purchased the porcelain candlesticks seen in this photo at an antiques shop near Oxford. I was told the candlesticks were made by Royal Crown Derby and paid about $100 for the pair. They are decorated with an Asian Imari pattern that is red, cobalt blue, green and gold against a white background. They do not have the usual crown mark on the bottom, just the number "7445" ...

Q: I would love for you to solve this mystery. Lately I'm finding small clumps of turf pulled out. At first I thought it was a mole or gopher, but I don't see any tunnels beyond the removed clump. I read that moles prefer areas that have a grub problem. I did fight the grubs last month; however, some of the lifted little clumps are in healthy lawns as well.  A: Well, first I guess ...

Q: Our guest bathroom is really small. There's a hall closet we could integrate into the bath, but that won't give us but 4 extra feet of floor space. What's your take on this? Is it worth it to go through a messy renovation? A: When bath space is limited, every square inch is precious. You are right, renovations can be a test of endurance and humor, but even 4 feet of new space can ... [full story]

The name Frozen Charlotte may sound like a delicious new dessert, but anyone in the doll world will tell you that it is in fact a kind of charming porcelain doll made primarily in Germany from about 1860 to 1940, and a favorite of collectors today. Known in Germany as Baderkinder, or Bathing Dolls (as they could be played with in water, either at the beach or at home, in the bathtub or a pail ... [full story]

Q: This is a framed, reverse painting that belonged to my grandmother around 1914. It is one of three that I inherited. The other two are scenes of the Titanic and a castle. The one in this photo measures approximately 30 by 18 inches. Other than some wear on the frame it is in good condition. I could not find an artist's signature.   REVERSE PAINTING - This reverse painting on glass was probably done in ... [full story]

Q: We have a problem with dead areas of grass in our four-year-old lawn. The front yard was sodded and has the problem, while the backyard was seeded and doesn't have the problem. We have tried using fungicides. Nothing seems to kill it. We take good care of the grass by fertilizing and watering it with the sprinkler system on a regular basis. Can you suggest to us what we can do to kill this ... [full story]

Q: We don't get much stay-over company. So I'm thinking we should do something with the guest room, like maybe turn it into an office. Would it make sense to take off the sliding closet doors and use that space for file cabinets and shelves? A: Not only would it make sense, it could be downright inspired. If you don't need the hanging room, a double closet is too valuable to keep behind   HOME OFFICE ... [full story]

Although it had a relatively short reign as a primary source of artificial light in this country - only about 40 years, until electricity superseded it - the kerosene lamp has come to be seen as a symbol of the Victorian era, and has its own sizable coterie of collectors. In the first half of the 19th century, the most prevalent lamps in this country were glass-chimneyed lamps containing a tubular wick, fueled by whale ... [full story]

Q: I'm about to do over our oldest son's room. He's going to be living with us for a year or so, waiting for his office to post him abroad. The room's not very big (12 by 14) and just has one window. My question is about that window: what kind of curtains would be suitable in a room for a 25-year-old guy? A: I'd suggest that, like the rest of humanity, 25-year-old guys have ... [full story]
