Pet Pleasing Purchases
By Michelle Sieling (Jul 22, 2005)
I will admit with no shame that I spoil Guinevere, my Staffordshire Bull Terrier. For her 10th birthday last year, I bought her an ox-blood red leather collar with silver stars and a black leather leash to replace the old nylon ones she had been sporting for years. For Christmas, I gave her a furry squeaky toy in the shape of a fox that she managed to rip up in about two weeks. I also feed her organic dry dog food and indulge her addiction to what I call 'dog crack', otherwise known as Greenies chew treats. More

Resources for your urban refuge San Francisco
By Michelle Sieling (Jun 3, 2005)
In a city shrouded in fog for most of the year, rare sunny days bring San Franciscans outdoors in droves. Kicking back in your yard or on a back porch is a great way to escape the heat and noise of the dirty city streets. And though lounging in a backyard is lovely, being faced with tall weeds or a sad barren porch may drive you back inside onto your couch. Fortunately for San Franciscans, Floorcraft Garden Center and Guerrero Street Gardens have the tools, plants and experienced staff with the know-how to get your outside oasis ready for your enjoyment. More

By Nirmala Nataraj (Apr 1, 2005)
Ah, springtime… It's a season for cleaning out dusty closets and replacing your drab winter garb with vibrant colors and softer fabrics. It's also a season for strolling through the city with your sweetheart and admiring the fragrance-inducing ambiance of a world in new bloom. If you've found that your Saturday afternoons are suddenly becoming more amenable to walks through the park or other outdoor excursions, you may want to consider bringing a piece of the greenery home. More

The vocabulary of plant lovers has always baffled me. Hydroponics, humidifiers, carnivorous plants, garden varieties of nightshade - it's a flurry of vegetable confusion. And admittedly, I've always been a botanical death dealer, the kind of person who neglects watering anniversary bouquets or a vacationing friend's prized bonsai. More

Slumber in Style
By Gloria Tai (Sep 4, 2004)

Fodder for your Inner Child
By Nirmala Nataraj (Aug 19, 2004)
Ever pine for the novelty stores of your childhood, those quaint little get-ups that could be found on every street corner and painted a proverbial picture of Americana and its essentials? I can see it now: glass jars dotted with gum drops, marble-top counters sporting multi-colored pens, fire engine red stools made for lazy lounging and imbibing ice cream sodas. Getting nostalgic yet? Um, probably not, unless you grew up in the 1950s. All the same, avatars of the five and dime stores of yore, despite exponentially inflated prices, are popping up everywhere... More
