I don't have a lan line. I have dsl, but don't need an active phone line. I do have a vintage phone. I do miss the ring. I keep thinking about getting it hooked up again. But, I really wouldn't use it enough.

I live in an apartment w/o a washer and dryer. I do have a portable washer, though. I hang all of my clothes to dry inside. I don't have a place to hang them outside. The only problem I have is that it takes two or three days for my clothes to dry. When I have fallen behind on my laundry, this can be an issue.

I like the couch in the photo. : )

I have seen small apartments like this in the China Town in my city. It amazes me how those who live in the apartments think of storage options that I never would have.

I have posted for things I wanted. In the past I have received these items. I have even received really nice things for free. But, lately, it has been a waste of time. I have found that within the last year or so that nobody responds to these ads.

I use a mason jar for my toothbrush. I just put in glass pebbles to keep the toothbrush stand up. Added bonus is it makes it look more attractive. : )

I live in San Francisco. I am not extremely happy about this new law. I wonder how well this law can be enforced.

Reddish colors would not go well because of the yellowish floor. So, colors would be limited unless you plan on changing the color of the floor. So, tans, light browns.. in the golden and yellowish family. You might be able to get away with a brown with a bit of a red tint. If you go with something that matches the floor will probably match the green in the tile.

It is hard living in an urban area, where typically rent is more than half of what you take home a month. But, I wouldn't trade it for anything. Most of the apartments have a ton of charm, even if they are small. The city also offers so much. There are tons of things to do for free, especially during the summer. There are a lot of museums and exhibits, concerts, and galleries. I love the convenience of being able to walk most places. Not having a car cuts down on expenses too. For now, I couldn't see myself living anywhere else except SF.

I've never been able to start things from seeds, but had a basil plant growing until I got tired of it. My new apartment doesn't get enough direct sun.

I would have the same concerns as hooksies. My first fear would be that the house would burn quicker.

I bought two from IKEA. One is a Money Tree plant and is doing fabulous. The other is a Coffee Plant and is doing ok. What I don't like is that they don't mark what the plant is. It took me almost a year to figure out what my Coffee Plant was. I have found that Money Tree plants are hardy plants anyway. I have read that Coffee Plants are a little sensitive. So, it probably depends on what type of plant you buy.

I had two pairs of vintage barkcloth curtains that I could not use in my new place. I had them sewn together, and had button holes put in the top part. They are now my shower curtains.

I think it is sad to see an old building get neglected. The biggest issue with this building (like the article states) is that it is one of the few structures that survived the earthquake. So, to lose a piece of history is sad.
