"We buy properties that we want to improve," Joe Press, a senior vice president for Ashkenazy Acquisition Corp., told the Roland Park Civic League on Thursday.

They may be humble and practical or elevated by imagination to works of art.Lamps, that is.These inspired lamps by Massachusetts artist Janna Ugone are practical but by no means humble. With their flirtatious finials and jewel-studded aluminum or copper stems, they seem destined to become collector's items. Only a few are shown here but they're available in a staggering variety of patterns and colors because Ms. Ugone welcomes commissions.The mostly ceramic (and sometimes paper) shades are earthy and impeccably proportioned.

The success of eating places in the Village of Cross Keys has been spotty at best. The hotel no longer has a fine-dining restaurant, and its coffee shop doesn't have the cachet the old Village Roost did. The popular Cross Keys Deli disappeared. Donna's managed to survive the bankruptcy of the bookstore it was in, and even flourish finally; but it wasn't easy. Truffles & Tea closed. And I'm not even sure I've named all the places that have come and gone. So why do I think the new Village Square Cafe, which has just started serving dinner, could make it?

Samantha Harris is probably the envy of every fashion-minded women or giddy teenager. She spends every working day in the mall. After working in marketing at Owings Mills Mall, the Mall in Columbia and Towson Town Center, she was promoted earlier this month to general manager of Mondawmin Mall and The Village of Cross Keys in Baltimore. Harris takes over Mondawmin as it finishes a $70 million renovation that includes the addition of a Target. She admits that it can take a lot of self-control to work so close to racks of pretty shoes, expensive perfumes and designer jeans.
