071109-hng01.jpgLos Angeles is a city of transplants so it's only fitting that this week's top stories in the Los Angeles Times Home & Garden focus on influences from other places: artist-blacksmith Alan Drew draws inspiration for his andirons, grillwork and other metal creations from the Old West; LM Pagano's Hollywood home invites you to transport yourself to New Orleans; and, if you've never been able to get to Chicago for the Renegade Craft Fair, it's now set up in Los Angeles for the weekend. Links to these on other stories on the Los Angeles Times website, after the jump....

Artist-blacksmith Alan Drew's new Old West creations: Alan Drew started life as a cowboy but he also loved to sketch and paint. Blacksmithing was a way to combine his two passions, coaxing metal into intricate screens, grilles, balconies and more...

Home Tour: A bit of New Orleans in Hollywood: LM Pagano's led a colourful life and her home reflects that, a glamourous, eclectic, comfortable spot where late night jazz jam sessions are not unusual.

Renegade Craft Fair sets up shop in L.A. this weekend: The DIY and handmade art event, which got its start in Chicago, makes its Los Angeles bow this weekend at the California Market Center downtown. Featuring the work of more than 300 crafters, including KG + AB, the Etsy ceramicist seen here.
