With a little imagination, ingenuity, and these colorfully illustrated projects, anyone can learn to make personalized furniture to decorate a dolls' house!

At every stage, there's an inventory of the necessary tools, equipment, and materials, plus same-size drawings, cutting lists, and color photographs of the completed furnishings. Try easy upholstered furniture; balsa tables, benches, and birdhouses; and imitation basketwork, including a laundry bin. Among the beautiful and small-sized items: a simple winged chair; picnic table; elegant double bed; wardrobe, tall kitchen dresser, and a range of magnificent Portuguese painted pieces. They're works of art!

Enter the plant world's heart of darkness--and discover it's beautiful, filled with luscious, deep tones to enrich any garden's color scheme. "Dark plants" are those with black, or nearly black, flowers and foliage. Unusual and marvelous, often tinged with purple or red, they can take the breath away; just look at the delicate, velvety "chocolate cosmos" (named for its delicious aroma), for example. Choose from an amazing array of annuals, biennials, and tender perennials; bulbs, corms, rhizomes, and tubers; hardy perennials; and even trees, shrubs, and grasses, all in an alphabetical directory with descriptions and growing information. Six easy-to-implement design schemes take you through the seasons, and from sun-loving to shade plants. A Selection of the Garden Book Club.
