Four years ago, Anita Gold followed a long-cherished dream to live in the country. She sold a rowhouse in Baltimore and moved to green acres in Carroll County. Gold, 59, remembers the day she and husband Mike Hall, 60, happened upon a 25-year-old split-level home in Finksburg situated on a half-acre "in the middle of a farm, with cows across the street." "This house was in absolute move-in condition," Gold states, "at a cost of $169,000." Once the deal was signed, the couple set about grading an unsightly hill on the expansive front lawn.

Soon, St. James Church in Lothian will be looking as spiffy as at any time in its illustrious 310-year history as an Episcopal parish. Fresh coats of "white dove" paint hug its walls; pews and trim have been redone in a handsome beige - and before long, says Val Hymes, the church's verger, one of the church's true stalwarts, a red carpet will welcome members and visitors in vibrant style. But what will receive the most attention in the refurbished setting this weekend will be St. James' new organ: a Rodgers Trillium 957 three-manual digital model with 55 stops and the computerized equivalent of 115 pipe ranks.

Back in the '60s, when other auto makers were bragging about their sleek styling, Volkswagen advertised its now-legendary minibus this way: "The Volkswagen Station Wagon looks like a box because it's built like a box. It lets you store the most possible stuff in the least possible space." It took other manufacturers 20 years to appreciate the power of this simple message, but catch on they did, and today the minivan is the ultimate suburban cliche. These direct descendants of that clunky, underpowered VW bus are popular for one reason only: They're big boxes that hold a lot of kids, luggage, sports equipment and Labrador retrievers, in any combination.

Grab your sunglasses. Brights are back.Mango and tangerine make bold statements next to strawberry or electric grape, and citrus shades of lemon and lime are electrifying side by side with cobalt blue and turquoise. In short, fruity hues are juicing up the home fashion scene, just as they're adding sparkle to apparel.And the trend isn't restricted to walls, fabrics and furnishings. Sassy solids and perky patterns are coloring utilitarian objects such as toothbrushes, razors, scissors, tape dispensers, plastic storage containers, dinnerware and candlestick holders.
