A Renter's Life in Seattle: The Inside Scoop Apartment Therapy's Renters Guide

I did this immediately when I moved into my apartment. As a dog owner, I needed a hand-held shower massage to bathe mister Labrador. This is absolutely correct - I dated a plumber, once, so I already knew the tricks!

I live in a humid area - wouldn't these cotton curtains get moldy quickly? Thanks for the advice?

Cute house. Remodelista is re-running their story on this house now, too.

Hi, Rae! Cute place! Where the heck is the entrance? I can't figure it out from the pictures or the layout. Thanks!

By the way, I think that is mache in the picture, not watercress... ;)

Here are directions for growing watercress inside from leftover stems:

I would not recommend using the stems in stock as they have a strong peppery flavor that will overpower the other flavors.

Get a dog - he made me straighten up everything before I go to work. If not, he will either eat it or lay on it while I'm away. As for "airing out", if you get the night sweats like I do, it makes a LOT of sense.

I was roommates with my sister when we both went back to college for a second carreer. HER pet peeve was my ruining her Freecell stats when I played her game. I'm sure there we other things, since she is easily annoyed, but that was the first to come to mind.

Your next question should be about plants. I have a north-facing living room, and have killed all but one plant, the mother-in-law's tongue. I used to hate both the name and appearance, but now he has stuck by me for 5 years...

I would LOVE any suggestions for cleaning an oven. Mine is not self-cleaning, and I hate the toxic fumes from regular oven cleaner. Any advice is welcome. Thanks!

The Libman recommendation is great! I have one, and I use my own solution and washable mophead. The Swiffer is just a money-eating machine with the disposable products you have to keep buying. It's fine on my linoleum floors.

Is that your dog or a stock picture, because I own it's twin brother. What breed do you suppose he/she is made of?

I have a Lab-mix rescue and love him to death! He is VERY high energy, and I am greatful that my complex has a dog yard, so he can get his frisbee on! We we walk every day, but it is never enough to tire him out. My apartment is a first floor, so the first and last "go" of the day are easy out the patio door. I keep a package of wipes on the back patio, because I have carpet and muddy feet are an issue. Study your life and let the rescues know that you can accomodate your puppy, if you just get creative.

Get a dog! He will get you up, perk you up, and get you out! Also gives me great incentive to make my bad - no fur in the bed, thank you!

Colonial Williamsburg is amuck with pineapples as their symbol of hospitality! A lot of their Christmas decorations feature this amiable fruit.

Beautiful house! Very traditional/tasteful. Was there a dog crate in there? It must be very well disguised?
