Here's to our fine feathered friends. Despite the songs they warble too early in the A.M., don't we owe them something for teaching us to nest? But who has the time to make a birdhouse out of Popsicle sticks, especially when there are so many ready-made products for bird housing, feeding and bathing? Among the most attractive is an orb birdhouse made of unglazed earthenware, designed by Stan Bitters in 1959. (It was shown in the Pasadena Museum of Art's "California Design" series.

THOUGH he retired 16 years ago, Eugene Weston III still gets calls. Some are clients from decades past who tell the architect that his wood-and-glass houses have withstood earthquakes just fine. Others want Weston, one of the last surviving masters of 1950s post-and-beam construction in Southern California, to renovate and enlarge their midcentury homes. To the former, the 82-year-old says thanks. To the latter: Thanks, but no thanks. Then there's Scott Nadeau.

Kelly Wearstler is always up for a challenge. After establishing herself as one of the nation's leading interior designers, she followed up her high-voltage interiors, furniture and home accessories with a signature clothing collection. “Designing ready-to-wear clothing was the hardest thing I've ever attempted,” Wearstler said. “Learning fashion is like speaking another language.” Now comes “Rhapsody,” Wearstler's fourth book, to be published Oct. 23 by Rizzoli.

Though he is still crawling, 9-month-old Thurston Conder takes about 10 seconds to have the run of the house. It's not that he's exceptionally fast; he just doesn't have that far to roam. Thurston shares 380 square feet with his mom and dad, Kelly Breslin and Ryan Conder, and a medium-sized mutt named Charlie. Lots of young families start out in small houses, just not this small. These parents say it's their preference, and that the small space hasn't cramped their style. It's arranged for maximum efficiency, but it still looks comfortable and fashionably decorated.

Over the last 15 years, Patrick Wilson has painted some of the most physically resplendent paintings to come out of Los Angeles. His new ones make his old ones look tame, not quite clunky but nowhere nearly as sophisticated as his mind-blowing acrylics on canvas and paper at Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Proj- ects. If Wilson were a professional athlete and his game had improved so dramatically, fans would surely think he was juiced. His paintings perform like champions, rising above the competition to do their own thing with such panache and dazzle that they are at once pleasurable and inspiring.
