  1. Shelf Within a Shelf

    Hide

    Make the most of your cupboard real estate by adding another level of storage for glassware. Cut a piece of nonskid shelf liner (available at home-supply stores) to line a serving tray and a cupboard shelf; this will help glasses stay put and protect the rims. Place glasses used less frequently upside down on the shelf, set tray on top, and arrange everyday glasses upside down on tray.

  4. Good Thing

    Supply-Securing Cord

    Hide

    Use bungee cords to keep items from tumbling off freestanding shelves. The cords are especially helpful in high-traffic areas, such as the garage, where shelves might get jostled. Hook a cord across the front of a shelf, or use an extra-long one to wrap around the sides as well. If the cord isn't taut, wrap slack around the leg, then hook the cord to itself.

  5. Dan Hinckley's Seattle Garden Tour

    Hide

    Renowned author and plants expert Dan Hinkley has traveled the globe in search of beautiful and unique plants for his private garden, Windcliff, in Seattle.

    Situated on a bluff overlooking Puget Sound, the diverse garden was first begun only six years ago but has grown quickly in the lush climate of the Pacific Northwest.

    Highlights from the stunning landscape include tiered Asian dogwoods, colorful hydrangeas, and dramatic bamboo, as well as a vegetable garden and greenhouse where Dan grows lettuce, onions, tomatoes, and other crops.

  6. Winter Tulip Arrangement

    Hide

    The holidays may be over, but with this arrangement you can extend the season's charms -- and its fragrant greenery. Just snip some branches off the Christmas tree before it heads to the compost heap, and place them in a vase. To offset the fir's stiffness, add cedar and seeded eucalyptus. Finally, the luxurious touch: a few dozen white tulips from your florist. Voila: a fresh display to welcome the New Year.

    A tall, egg-shaped vase such as this ceramic one supports the weak-stemmed tulips and emphasizes the arrangement's loose, natural feel. Verso vase, in Sage, calvinklein.com.
