Fancy frights: Disney Mansion goes to spooky extremes in Halloween decorating

ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. - No one around here decorates a house for Halloween quite like the creative minds behind the Haunted Mansion Holiday at Disneyland. It has been 14 years since the seasonal "Nightmare Before Christmas"-themed overlay was launched at the classic Haunted Mansion, and the ghoulish meets quirky meets elegant design continues to evolve as the designers tweak or add new features for a three-month run.

Gardener: Lessons from Thomas Jefferson's Monticello

After five years of traveling the country for the television show I currently host and produce, ("Growing a Greener World" on national public television), we have been to some incredible and beautiful places. One that continues to hold a spot on my list of favorites is Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, located just outside Charlottesville, Va.

Yardsmart: Organic fall decor

Repurpose, recycle, reuse, is the mantra of today's decor. When you decorate for autumn with organic elements that can later be repurposed, you get double the value. All over America it's the season of gourds and Indian corn, both highly useful raw materials that can yield art projects and seed for next year's garden. The key is knowing what to buy now and how to exploit the second harvest next year.

Hobbies: Feather gift box wraps things up elegantly

Scrapbook paper is great for scrapbooking, of course, but it can also be used for so many other projects. This project was inspired by my good friend, Brenda Walton. She is always bringing me delightful gifts that are wrapped to perfection - the wrapping is just as pretty as the gift itself. Scrapbooking paper remnants and little embellishments go a long way in creating a lovely little gift box that will take your gift giving to a new level.
