Eye on Antiques: Understanding Stoves
A fireplace warms the spirits but often not the room, so 18th-Century inventors moved the flames into an iron box to make the woodstove. We trace the development of their clever ideas through the stoves’ ever-increasing efficiency, beauty, and now collectability.
A Pilgrim in Hill Country
Renaissance woman Penny Scroggins turned an early Kentucky log cabin into a Texas retreat, furnishing it with antiques and handmade pieces that pay tribute to her New England ancestry.
A Small Southern Saltbox
Tom Branton restored a pre-Revolutionary war home that survived urbanization in his native Portsmouth, Virginia. He maximized its small footprint with well-planned storage and created a cozy atmosphere with family heirlooms.
Return to Service
Wanting to move closer to family back East, Rebecca and Dave Gallagher left Texas to take over managing a landmark Pennsylvania inn. They built upon the previous owner’s 1970s restoration with a mix of local history and modern hospitality.
Early American Patchwork Quilts
Although Americans made patchwork quilting their own in the later 19th Century, needleworkers began developing the art here as early as the 18th Century. We take a look at some of the earliest patchwork quilts in America.
Brandy Distilling in the Southern Colonies
Neither barley for beer nor grapes for wine grew well in the hot South, so colonists there concocted a drink made from their abundant peaches, distilling them into brandy that not only kept well but warmed their spirits.
Stitch a Sewing Book
Felted wool is key to keeping this sewing project easy enough for new needleworkers but beautiful enough to make a gift useful to any seamstress—and you can add your own flair with different designs and colors.
Everybody Goes to Rudy’s
Anyone restoring a period home in central New England will likely hear about Rudy, who supplies otherwise impossible-to-find antique architectural details. We tracked him down and found that this Connecticut dairy farmer became a restoration expert because "one thing led to another."
