Monday's pets on furniture

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my basic rules: First, the pet must be on a piece of furniture. And said piece of furniture must be clearly visible in the photo, so it takes center stage rather than your pet. Think of it more of a photo of a great piece of furniture that you want to show off...and your pet happens to be sitting on it. And second, if the photo is dark or fuzzy then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

The living room of my house here in Buenos Aires.Our cat Mau Mau (a rescue) loves to nap on the pouffs I inherited from my grandma.Over the white sofa an "aguayo" bought in Salta (a province up north in the limit with Bolivia) The yute rug came all the way from Punta del Este in Uruguay, and serves as a scratcher too!

Our Maltese, Stoli, rests on one of his favorite spots in our downtown Austin bungalow. He is the king of our castle!

I thought I'd use this medium to introduce a new member of the family. Back in May I blogged the passing of my sister Jen's cat Pugley (formerly my cat that my husband and I had rescued from the Humane Society). Jen's other cat Minnie (who was rescued and brought back from Thailand by her friend) has really missed Pugley and spends alot of time wandering around the house howling. :( Saturday Jen and her husband and daughter went to the Humane Society here in Ottawa and brought home an 8 year old bundle of adorable affectionate cuteness now named Sonny. I stopped by yesterday to meet him and totally fell in love. He is like a dog in a cat's body, and is so starving for affection. Oddly enough this cat was brought in as a stray but CLEARLY was someone's pet at one point. No stray is this sweet. And he totally tolerates the antics of my almost 3 year old niece so he'll get along great with the baby my sister is about to pop.  So people, PLEASE go to your local animal shelter if you're looking for a new pet. They are often overcrowded and have every kind of cat imaginable.


Dancing grass

If this garden was mine? As the day aged into late afternoon you'd find me, glass of wine in hand, listening to the wind in the trees and watching the grass dance. Peter Fudge Gardens.


Canal House

Gracefully balanced and restrained this apartment is part of a 100-year-old building located on one of Amsterdam's most beautiful 17th century canals. Light filled and layered. An historic shell and a modern interior, expansive and cosy. The best of both worlds. Past and present. Beauty and function. Canal House HG by Powerhouse Company.

Restless stalking

Here, there, everywhere. I've been stalking so many homes and I still can't make up my mind if I like them or not. I see a house, like a picture, then another, then change my mind. Here are 12 homes that are probably amazing but there was something I just couldn't put my finger on. Maybe I'm fussy these days. Yes that's it. (No I must tell the truth. I'm wasting time on instagram today and it was so hard to get motivated :) Click on the images to go to the listings. As usual they are from Enjoy!
