Q: My partner and I are beginning to collect antiques because we're doing over an 1890s Victorian with high ceilings and good architectural detailing, like hardwood doors and deep crown mouldings. The best of our antiques - a William and Mary chest and a 1920s camelback sofa - are going in the front room. The sofa is already upholstered in camel linen. Our question: how will it look to do the walls dark brown with ... [full story]

I once had a neighbor who collected old woodworking tools. He displayed them lined up very precisely on backlit shelves like primitive wooden sculptures, and their simple forms and worn patina made them look just like that. The one type that particularly stands out in my memory is his long line of antique wooden planes. Recalling a time when many artisans shaped their own tools by hand in the 18th and early 19th centuries, and ... [full story]

Q: The pitcher in this photo has been passed down to me from my husband's family. It is over seven inches tall and marked "Henriot Quimper - France." Although it can't be seen in this photo, on the side under the spout there is the image of a man wearing blue pantaloons, yellow stockings, black shoes, a green jacket and hat. The pitcher is also decorated with concentric blue and yellow bands. Other than a ... [full story]

Q: I planted my tomato plants next to a discharge pipe from our sump pump. There are irrigation holes in the line which soak the area within 1 foot of my plants. After reading your article on gray water, I'm wondering if this is a safe water source?  If not, would it be too late to move them or should I destroy them? They have been in the ground for three weeks and are growing ... [full story]

  Cockroaches thrive in warm, damp environments, such as sewers, attics, basements and crawl spaces. You need to find and treat these sources directly. In many cases, the services of a professional pest company may be required.  [full story]

Q: I work part time at home and really need a little desk somewhere besides our bedroom. It's no fun to wake up and see all the papers I have to deal with! Downstairs there's the front-hall closet I've been eyeing, but then we'd always be throwing our coats - and our guests' coats - over the stair railing or somewhere. My husband thinks I should buy an armoire for an "office," but then I'd ... [full story]

Many, if not most, people who drive by or enter their local Pep Boys shop have little idea of its long and interesting history, both as a business and as an advertising vehicle, although the familiar caricatures of Manny, Moe and Jack - the actual originators of the firm - live on in the collective imagination. Actually, it should have been Manny, Moe, Moe and Jack, to truly represent the founders. The story begins in ... [full story]

Q: We are enclosing a photo of one of two matching clear glass compotes that were given to us in the late 1950s from a relative. The overall measurements of each are 7 inches wide and 12 inches high. Both are in mint condition. We were told that by turning each one upside down and placing the lid on top of the base, you could use them to serve pastry.   GLASS COMPOTE - This glass ... [full story]

As we think about the history of our native landscape, we realize how much it has changed. The shape of the land has been altered and the prairies, wetlands and forests have been reduced. With those changes, some of the native wildlife has disappeared or been reduced.  One group of wildlife that many people tell me they miss is the butterflies. Of all of the insects in the world, butterflies are probably the most fun ... [full story]

Q: We have painted ourselves in a corner, so to speak, redoing our master bath. We spent most of our budget on a very contemporary tub, sink and toilet ensemble (from Duravit), and now can't afford the marble we'd picked out for the floor. While we save up again, can you suggest a flooring material that will work with our contemporary "furniture" and not cost the earth?   COOL VINYL - Vinyl flooring is inexpensive, and ... [full story]

Q: This is a picture of a vase that was given to my parents over 20 years ago. It was originally purchased in the late 1940s after World War II in Europe. The vase is about 14 inches tall and in perfect condition. Marked on the bottom are the words "Made in Austria, Hungary - 1904 - Zsolnay." Also included with the mark are five towers with crosses on top. Could you give me any ... [full story]

Q: Early this spring I noticed the top 6 inches of my one-year-old grapevine had snapped off. I stuck the top part into a flower vase with water, and to my surprise roots began to grow and leaves started to form. Both the roots and leaves appear to be very healthy. How do I go about transplanting it to the garden? Can I simply dig a hole and stick it in the soil, or is ... [full story]
