Reader’s clock low in collector interest Potential dollar value is below $100.
This clock case was likely made in America, circa 1900. [Submitted photo]
Q: I have attached several photos below of a clock I would like to know the value of. Do you have any information you can give me? — M.P., internet
A: The photographs you sent are quite clear, but your narrative leaves all the details missing. I cannot see the manufacturer’s mark on the movement. The case was likely made in America, circa 1900. However, the movement looks like it was made in Japan for the American market. One way or the other, collector interest is low.
Pioneer Garden Club
The world has changed. Families no longer consist of 10 children to work the family farm. Most families don’t live on farms. What’s a kid to do all day? Watch TV, video games, text message friends? Maybe. But, there are thousands of kids in Florida who don’t. They have a sense of wonder past our materialistic society. The world depends on our kids to understand that we need them. We need to them to feed us into the future, clothe us, create new bioinventions, medicines, forests, erosion control, animal habitats . . . We need them to dig it, to get their hands dirty and create new life. All they have to do is look around their own community.

A: Sets like the one you have were manufactured in large quantities. They were often purchased by servicemen when returning to the United States after serving in Asia. There is no collector interest. Generally speaking, they get bought and sold at recognizably low prices.
I have no family at all, and no real university affiliation, although I got my Ph.D. from the University of Melbourne in Australia. It makes me sad to think the journals will simply be tossed into the rubbish when I die. I would be willing to leave a cash bequest to any organization that
A: I agree that your journals should not end up in a rubbish pile. I suggest you contact the University of Florida Archives for Special Collections, perhaps they will have an interest in the journals. The phone number is 392-6547.

Thank you. — T.D.F., internet A: I think you mean Belleview. Leak Enterprises is located
in Belleview and does excellent restoration and repair. The phone number is 245-8862. Q: Is there a place in Gainesville to have an old cedar chest refinished? — S.F., internet A: I suggest you contact Glenn Camp at Central Florida Furniture Service. He will bring your old cedar chest back to life. The phone number is 895-1157.

Kids Dig It! By Donna Paget
Q: I read your articles in the paper each Sunday and it struck us that you might know how to help us to determine the value or possible buyer for a solid bronze table setting with case from Thailand. It was acquired by my wife’s mom sometime in the late 1960s. Photos attached. We are looking to find the right buyer and an idea of its value. Can you help? — R.H., Ocala
Q: I am an author and journalist who has kept a personal journal since 1960. There are now enough of these journals to fill a couple of bankers’ boxes. They are not the “thoughts and feelings” type of journal popular today, but more of a Samuel Pepys style recounting of life’s events. As I have lived and worked all over the world, these might prove interesting to future generations wondering "what was it like?"
would agree to preserve them, but I have no idea of what such an organization would even be called, or if it exists. Any suggestions? — G.G., internet
many opportunities for teens to volunteer their time to outdoor endeavors, “greening” and environmental practices. Are there recently burned areas that need more trees or plants for erosion control? Can we help feed a community with healthy veggies by getting involved in a community garden? Are there non-native plants invading a nearby waterway? Is there a local wildlife sanctuary that needs a habitat built? Do we need to plant more colorful plants to attract the declining population of bees?
we have many creative outlets for our teens to shine (and blossom!). Future Farmers of America (FFA), 4-H Sciences programs, the Southeastern Youth Fair, the State Fair and high school Agriculture classes are a few programs that are shaping our horticultural stars of the future. These programs encourage leadership, involvement, social interaction and creating something.
Kids can be activists, but they’re also competitive. So how can they combine their connection with the earth and their competitive natures? Luckily, here in Florida,
4-H is a national club that was started over 100 years ago to give agricultural education to youth. Today the program serves almost 250,000 youth in Florida. Kids can learn about and compete in events from dogs, hogs, horses, plants, ants, mares and marine life! Our local UF/IFAS Extension County Office can give

more information on Beginning Gardening and even about Junior Master Gardener programs. Though the Florida FFA was started less than 100 years ago, it still offers an impressive outlet for youth to participate in and strengthen American agriculture. With over 17,000 members in the state, the youth can compete in diverse leadership, agriculture, forestry, livestock and horticulture events to name a few.
Show is a part of the Romeo Roundup 4-H. The Intermediate and Senior levels competed through their FFA associations and were from Ft. McCoy FFA and Vanguard FFA. Another great event at the Southeastern Youth Fair is Plant ID. The contestants in this event can then be better able to select, buy, use, grow, sell, and appreciate the offerings of plants. That’s exciting news for our future, as this is the start of feeding the world.
The Pioneer Garden Club of Ocala is an organization that promotes horticulture and civic beauty in Marion County, so we love hearing about our youth who compete in these areas. According to the Southeastern Youth Fair website, the winner for the Junior level at the Horticulture

colors and items that look like they belong together. 3. Go white. Sometimes white or neutral colors can make a soft and soothing palette. 4. Use pops of color. Subtle but purposeful pops of color can help highlight a space. 5. Vary height. Don’t use items that are all one height. 6. Use vignettes. Vignettes are small, thought-out design elements such as successfully paired together. 7. Don’t ignore surfaces such as dressers and countertops. These are great opportunities
to continue your design statement. 8. Dress your shelves. Bookshelves or open shelves throughout the home should be functionally yet aesthetically pleasing. Blend books with decorative elements. 9. Consider artwork instead of mirrors over dressers. Often this is an opportunity to continue a color story in a room. 10. Infuse greenery or natural elements. Many designers use organic and natural elements such as moss, greenery, reeds, branches, twigs and stones as filler design elements for spaces such as shelves, countertops and side tables.
The scent then rounds out with comforting notes of clove, patchouli, sandalwood, vanilla, hay and musk for a relaxing and warm finish, perfect with which to end your day.
The first look I wanted to pair with a scent is the gorgeous coral, cream and rose decor found in
our entrance to the shop. The texture in this room is stunning. Our design team paired and layered all types of textiles to create a dynamic and lux look. The juxtaposition between the traditional floral pattern on the accent chairs and the geometric coral cut velvet throw pillows is eye-catching and shows how dynamic the right fabric mix can be. The space has a great balance with dark stained wood pieces and bright white and cream pops of light with the sofa, lamps and vignettes. Now, how do we translate that into a scent pairing? With so much complexity in the design, I wanted a simple scent that still had the same balance of crisp brightness and moody depth. I ended up finding the perfect match in the scent Grapefruit Vanilla. The sharp and juicy white grapefruit oil blends with the earthy cedarwood and warm vanilla notes to create a scent that seems like it was made specifically for

Design isn’t always seen and heard. Often the best design techniques are small, hidden touches. Less is often more. Some of the best designs aren’t always made in the big moments but in the small details. From color to the right furniture, fabrics, artwork and accessories, we’ve assembled some designer details secrets. 1. Incorporate shape blocking. This involves the repetition of shapes or patterns to make a design feel cohesive. 2. Use thoughtful accents. Accessories are critical elements of a room. Incorporate

Smell is one of the senses I tend to focus on since it is the most powerful link to our emotions and feelings. I rarely get as much nostalgia as I do when I come across a scent from the past. It is also an important tool for creating ambiance and mood within a space. With a new season upon us, it’s finally time to switch out some of our go-to winter scents (goodbye for now, Frasier fir) for our beloved springtime indulgences. As our pillows and vignettes change, so must our candles. This week I am pairing some of our recent designs with our favorite Pickwick scents for a fresh springtime look (and smell).
Heading upstairs, I went straight to a bedroom display that is light and airy and surprisingly fun and colorful. While at first glance it seems like a classic blue and white setting, the closer you look the more hues pop out of the lovely paisley print pillows. Soft blue accents and a pink tasseled throw blanket make for a sweet and romantic display that is stylish yet comfortable. With the youthful colors and tropical leaf print, this bedding is a breath of fresh air. Right away I knew the perfect scent would be High Cotton. Just as this design isn’t your traditional blue and white combination, High Cotton isn’t your typical linen-inspired scent. It mixes the forever favorite floral notes like lavender, rose and carnation with bright pops of lime, grapefruit and orange blossom to add a bit of energy and excitement.
For our final pairing I was drawn to our customer-favorite coral ceiling room. With a spring display that reaches from dining room to living room, it has all the vibrant colors and whimsical patterns that make me so excited for the season. The design could only be matched with the ultimate spring scent, Screened Porch. The fresh blend of sweet honeysuckle petals, jasmine, musk and mandarin complement oils of crispy green grass, green rose and geranium leaf just as the patterns and colors are tempered by the natural element of wood and greenery. It creates the perfect simple scent that also has a few unexpected and fun surprises.

LOS ANGELES — A piece of Palm Springs history is up for grabs in Old Las Palmas. “Rancho Autry,” the former estate of cowboy entertainer Gene Autry, is on the market in the desert city for $8.25 million. Autry and his wife, Jackie, paid $2.05 million for the home in 1997, and the crooner died a year later at 91. He made an indelible mark on Southern California in the latter half of his life, owning a TV station, multiple radio stations, a Palm Springs hotel and the Angels baseball team for 36 years. He also picked up a few properties along the way, including an Encino mansion that eventually sold to “Survivor” host Jeff Probst and a Midcentury condo in Palm Springs’ Ocotillo Lodge. The ranch is the biggest by far, clocking in at more than 13,400 square feet. Now owned by his widow, the gated estate holds a guest apartment, a tennis court, a glass mosaic swimming pool, drought-tolerant landscaping, citrus trees and turf lawns across 1.5 acres. The main home wraps around a courtyard and boasts colorful living spaces with hardwood floors, French doors, carved ceilings and five fireplaces. The living room is colored yellow, while the chandelier-topped
dining room features a more dramatic shade of orange. In the kitchen, a wall of glass overlooks the tennis court. The master suite — one of seven bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms — includes a steam shower, spa tub and sauna with skylights. Covered patios and lofted lounges circle the palm-topped backyard. The outdoor space, clad in Saltillo tile, also has a swimming pool with a spa in addition to mountain views. Autry had a television show bearing his name from 1950 to 1956 and was in scores of films. His signature song, “Back in the Saddle Again,” was used in the 1939 film “Rovin’ Tumbleweeds” and became the theme song for his radio show, which ran from 1940 to 1956. His biggest hit song was “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.” KARDASHIAN EMPIRE EXPANDS IN LA QUINTA Kim Kardashian West has followed in the footsteps of her mother, Kris Jenner, and sister Kylie Jenner, buying an undeveloped home site in La Quinta’s Madison Club community for $6.3 million, records show. The property is on the same street as the minimalist mansion that Kris Jenner purchased in 2018 for $12 million. It’s also a few doors down from the undeveloped parcel Kylie Jenner bought last year. Kardashian West and husband Kanye West
made the purchase toward the end of 2019 using a trust that holds other properties for the family. The seller was a corporate entity tied to Los Angeles-based billionaire Ron Burkle.
Comprised of two lots totaling about 2 acres, the property overlooks the sixth fairway of the Tom Fazio-designed golf course. Mature trees and the surrounding
The couple owns other property in Southern California, including a massive compound in L.A. County’s Hidden Hills neighborhood. HE’S BUTTONED UP NEW DIGS Fashion-designer-tothe-stars Bob Mackie has found a fit in South Palm Springs, buying a contemporary home in a gated community for $825,000.
The boxy single-story house, built in 2012, has a separate casita that combines to offer three bedrooms, three bathrooms and about 2,100 square feet of space. The versatile floor plan includes a great room, a formal dining room, an eat-in kitchen and multiple fireplaces. The master retreat has a sitting room. Outside, covered patios provide space for entertaining. The grounds feature desert landscaping and a heated swimming pool with a spa. A two-car garage sits off the front. The property had been listed outside the Multiple Listing Service for $825,000. Mackie, 80, is a ninetime Emmy winner and three-time Oscar nominee who dressed such stars as Cher, Bette Midler, Judy Garland and Joan Rivers. He designed costumes for Carol Burnett on “The Carol Burnett Show” during its entire run, as well as its spinoff “Mama’s Family.
