Apartment Therapy Los Angeles | Good Questions: What to Do With Our Kitchen?

I also vote for a smaller coffee table. That one doesn't really go with that couch. Is that an ottoman pushed against the window? You might want to use that as a coffee table instead, with a small, colorful tray on top to brighten it up.

I don't have any of my own recipes but I do use The Small Dogs Doggy Bone Cookbook: The Fun, Easy Way to Bake Love and Nutrition into Your Dog's Diet often. My two bulldogs LOVE the recipes in this book. They're easy to make and don't require a ton of ingredients. I also use the Three Dog Bakery Cookbook on occasion but the recipes in this book require more ingredients and might be easier to screw up. I've made a couple of things from this book that my boys refused to eat... and that's just sad. A bulldog refusing to eat?? Unheard of! lol

I think the beds are great... they look like they've got nice "bones". Since you sew, maybe you can soften them up with colorful slip covers for the headboard and footboard?

Pretty!

My photography tip is to buy an old manual film camera. Shooting with film encourages you to think about the shot... the lighting, subject placement, depth of field, etc.

OMG! I HAVE THAT SAME GAS MASK!!!
Actually, it's my husband's. I bought it for him last year as a Christmas gift. It's kind of neat, actually. The doll creeps me out tho.

heavier, not "heaving" materials.

The article says that because reusable bags are made from heaving materials, they're more likely to sit in landfills longer... but that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I bought a reusable bag at Rite-Aid that my husband quickly borrowed. He deployed and I just assumed he'd taken it with him. I discovered the bag a few months later in the back of his car... it crumbled when I picked it up and the parts that had been exposed to direct sunlight turned into dust. I've never seen a plastic or paper bag do that.

My bulldogs have their very own couch from IKEA that they are allowed to sit on. They know better than to get on the nice couch in the living room. All I had to do was tell them "no".

My husband calls it "The Store From Hell". Our first experience was overseas. We had to drive an hour and a half thru crazy Spanish traffic to get there. My husband was already at the end of his rope when we pulled into the parking garage... it was a long, looooong time before I could get him to go back. Now we're in San Diego, just down the street from one and he shudders every time we drive by it.

My house isn't spotless... I have two bulldogs to thank for that... but it's clean and neat for the most part. For a long time the walls were bare, which I think said I was afraid to settle in and become attached to my home since we're military and this isn't OUR house. We've recently started to spruce up the place and make it our own but there's still the nagging reminder not to do anything too major (like paint the walls) since we know we've only got so much time left in this house.

I think it's cute and if it were affordable (and suitable for my 60 lb bulldogs), I'd seriously consider it over the $10 IKEA tent they already have.

Our two bulldogs do not sleep with us. I think it's important for them to have their own space to relax and feel secure, so they have their own bedroom, each with their own toddler bed.


Apartment Therapy Chicago | Do You Let Your Pets Sleep In Your Bed?

I have two 5 year old bulldogs that have their own bedroom... I'd like advice and/or ideas on how to decorate their room. We'd like to avoid anything baby-ish. They're a little too old and too furry for that. ;)

Also, some ideas for bedding would be helpful. They each have their own toddler bed (http://www.flickr.com/photos/carmensandiego/559171096/) but it seems that most toddler bedding is tacky. We'd like to avoid superheros or cartoon characters.
