It's time to clear the bookshelf of a new crop of books about collectibles. "80 Years Of The Oscar: The Official History Of The Academy Awards" by Robert Osborne (Abbeville Press, $75). Long before he was the informed, affable and almost omnipresent host of "Turner Classic Movies," Robert Osborne was the official historian of the Academy Awards, and his cumulative research is now presented in a lavish volume chockfull of movie stills, posters, and documentary ...

Q: These ironstone mugs belonged to my mother. When we visited her, she always offered my husband a cup of coffee. She would get them out and ask him which one he wanted, the one with the saying "Party Guy" or the "Let's Go Crazy" one. His choice always was "Party Guy." After she passed away, we kept the mugs because using them made us remember the good times.   Vintage mugs, created by Papel Giftware, ... [full story]

Q: I have found a large area of moss growing on my lawn. I want to get rid of it, but my wife thinks I can transplant it to an area in her flowerbed. What do you think would be a good way to do this, if I decide to do it her way?   A: Moss can be really easy to transplant. I have done it several times, but I have also had it not ... [full story]

Q: We want to take up the worn-out carpeting in the front hall of the Tudor-style house we recently bought. The real estate agent says the floor is old chestnut that matches the paneling in the hall. We know chestnut is rare, but we are concerned about having too much wood. Even the ceiling beams are chestnut. What if we don't like the effect of all that wood?   There's no such thing as too much ... [full story]

There are some famous old ads for Mellin's baby food showing a chubby and adorable rosy-cheeked baby. Who would possibly guess by looking at them that the model for those illustrations would grow up to be cynical tough-guy actor Humphrey Bogart? And that they were drawn by his mother, the successful and well-known commercial artist Maud Humphrey? Born March 30, 1868, to a prosperous family in Rochester, N.Y., Maud Humphrey displayed an early talent for ... [full story]

Q: I hope you can provide some information on the pictured wooden tray. My dad bought it for me at a local historical museum rummage sale in Gilbert, Ariz. It measures 24 inches by 12 inches, including the handles, and is decorated with a scene of a mission church, homes and mountains. On the left side, the word "Mexico" is carved into the wood.    The wooden tray, created by Mexican artisans, would probably be in ... [full story]

Q: I have been thinking about putting in a rain garden. Do you have any advice?   A: A rain garden is similar to other perennial flowerbeds that you might build — it just holds water longer. Rather than building a raised flowerbed by adding organic matter to get better drainage, a rain garden is a flowerbed built slightly lower so that water accumulates. Rain gardens provide several benefits to your landscape. They trap water that ... [full story]

Let the air flow in and the allergens stay just where they belong — outside. More than 50 million people in North America are affected by allergies, and almost 55 percent overall suffer from at least one or more airborne allergens.   With PollenTec screens, you can keep the pollens out and the fresh air flowing without having to rub your eyes or blow your nose. Photo courtesy of PollenTec.  The only answer, up until now, was ... [full story]

Q: We are adding a master suite instead of moving like we'd planned. I'd wanted the bedroom to be open to the bath with maybe a half-wall or archway between. Our contractor is trying to talk me out of it because of moisture problems. He says we'll have to tile the entire space, but we want a hardwood floor. What do you think?   Cool limestone meets warm cherry wood flooring that flows from a masterful ... [full story]

Timing, in all things, is everything, and that's especially so for the elegant, special-occasion dessert known as the souffle. When done well, it emerges from the oven as a puffed-up, airy — albeit rich — confection that is sure to dazzle diners. Done poorly, it settles into a sunken mass devoid of the lighter-than-air quality of the perfect souffle.   Chef Bernard Guillas uses a ladel to pour souffle batter into a ramekin. Photo by K.C. ...
