Q: We love our big porch but in summertime, the heat and glare keep us from using it during the day. I looked into old-fashioned awnings - which we would love - but they were too much for our budget. Should we add some sort of weather-proof curtains? And what about the floor? I've read that outdoor rugs are more attractive now than the horrid, prickly thing my mother used to have on our porch. ... [full story]

In addition to the standard two-dimensional black-and-white, sepia, color, scenic or funny-picture postcard on card or linen, the world of deltiology is filled with some fascinating novelties. Some are made of an unusual material, such as copper, cork or leather, while others may exhibit such embellishments as embossing, embroidery, appliques or woven silk squares. Even more interesting to the collector are postcards that display mechanical or optical effects. One of the most sought-after types is ... [full story]

Outdoor living, a new and rapidly growing lifestyle phenomenon, means more than a few folding chairs, a picnic table and a hibachi, according to the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association. It means bringing all the comforts of indoor living to the outdoors into what's being called the "outdoor room."   OUTER SPACES - Dr. Mike and Jane Bradley of Springfield, Ill., have a wood-burning Italian pizza oven on their deck, which faces the golf course at ...

Q: Our "new" (1929) house has a huge living room, 30 by 20 feet. It overwhelms our furniture. We even had our living and dining room carpets from the old house sewn together and they just make an area rug in this room. My husband says he doesn't mind the empty space ... a good thing because we can't afford new furniture for a while. Our question is, what's the best way to arrange our ... [full story]

Yes, Shirley Temple was the most popular child star of all time, but she was much more than that too. Her cheery, dimpled persona is credited with almost single-handedly lifting the spirits of the American public during the Great Depression. She was responsible for almost every little girl across the country taking tap-dancing lessons, mothers putting up their daughters' hair in rags every night to make Shirley curls and doing their best to produce Shirley ...

Q: I have enclosed a picture of an art deco electric lamp once owned by my mother and that now belongs to me. I believe it is from the 1920-1930 era because that's when she and my dad were married. The base and the nude females are all metal and the globe is golden crackle glass. It still lights and the figures are in wonderful condition. The bottom is covered with green felt and I ...

Q: I saw your article in the Star Telegram on grapevines; I'm wondering how to grow seedless grapes. I bought a grafted vine that said seedless grapes, but they have seeds in them. Is there any way to make them seedless?  A: That is a good question. How can you get seedless grapes or watermelons if there are no seeds to grow? In the case of the grapes, you hinted at the answer. Grafting is ... [full story]
