Yet more Lucas Allen and some wedding goodies

I seem to have a bit of a stalker crush on Australian photographer Lucas Allen, as I've blogged his work in 2007, 2008 and again today. I've been a huge fan of his work for quite a while, and figured it was about time for round 3. Plus, I spent all day yesterday uploading photos to Flickr that we got back from our wedding photographer (I also tweaked some that my inlaws had taken, and put up a post of my favourite ones on "kim's page"), so I didn't really have time to go poking around for someone new to blog about. Might I also mention how bummed I am that Labour Day weekend, the last long weekend of the summer, is over and winter is right around the corner. UGH!!!

Emma Thomas

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love. Do you get the idea? Stylist and art director Emma Thomas has the touch. It's all just dreamily perfect. Some of you might remember a few of these images from this post last year on photographer Jo Henderson. Emma of course was the stylist. She has worked with best for the best like Elle Decoration, Living etc and Marie Claire. Did I say I love her work? Oh yeah! Lots more after the jump.

Monday's pets on furniture

If you'd like to send us photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow our 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, the photo must be of decent quality. If it's dark or fuzzy (from a camera phone) then it may not make the cut. Thanks! (Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)

****After viewing the adorable photos below, head on over to Pawesome and check out their awesome pet photo contest!!!

"Here is our beagle, Sophie Sue, relaxing in two of her favorite spots."
- Vanessa (Dallas, Texas)

"This is our little Siamese kitten Oliver, who spends most of his time cuddled up on the couch with his teddy"
- Keren (New Zealand)

"Pepper, our three year old silver back Persian. Gazing inquisitively outside at the squirrels but doesn't want to let go off the couch."
- Ivana and Sanil

"This is my dog Zoey on my hand-made Danish modern chair."
- Jenn (St. Louis, Missouri)

"Here are some pictures of my cats Nugget and Nelly enjoying their favourite couch, a linen-blend sectional from Structube. Nelly likes to prop herself next to me when i'm reading on the couch. Nugget on the other hand is quite possibly the laziest lounging cat ever. It's also purely coincidental that they are perfectly coordinated with the couch and pillow colour-scheme. :)"
- Steph (Ottawa)

"I love your monday posts, so here is a photo of our family pet cherry shrimps. We like those little creatures so much, that we even brought them along on the plane when we moved to France. The cupboard belongs to our french landlady, they are really keen on their family furniture, so when it was seized and auctioned off during WWII by nazis, they went to Germany to fetch it back immediately after the war ended =)"
- Liaissan (Orsay, France)

It's only 110 days till Christmas

Dear Santa,
I know it is a little early for Christmas wish lists but because it is a rather big present I thought I would ask early so you and the elves can get started on hustling up this New York loft for me in time for Christmas morning. Mummy says it is awfully large but I have 3 months to sew a super sized stocking to hang on the mantle. I want to ask for a change here and there in the decor but Daddy says not to be greedy. Please Santa I've been a good girl and I'll even buy my own air ticket to New York if it won't fit in the sleigh to come all the way here to Australia. If I can't have this can I have a puppy?
Lots of love,
