Monday's pets on furniture - part 1

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 closeups of your pet!)

Although she isn't technically a 'pet', this is Olive an orphaned wombat which my parents hand-reared and released into the wild at their Farm in North-east Victoria. Here, Olive is pictured on one of the furniture pieces designed and crafted by my father.

Here is my cat Harris lounging on my Danish hutch that I found at the Salvation Army amongst my mid-century ceramics collection.  Luckily he isn't really able to knock anything over since it is all earthquake puttied down.

We just got a new couch - antique, blue velvet... yum.  Our cat, Maggie, clearly approves of our choice!

Marta de la Rica

What a way to start the week! Let's all move into this party home extraordinaire. Designed by Madrid interior designer Marta de la Rica this house in the resort of Sotogrande in Andalusia is perfect for long hot Spanish days. Friends and family, fun and relaxation. The dining room is just right for a long lunch, curl up for a movie in the family room, party time on the entertainment deck and pool house. Actually you'll find me in those stunning bathrooms. I always love a bathroom.

I'm working on my new old house this weekend. Won't be on here too much. I thought you might like to make some new friends on new blogs (well new to me blogs and tumblrs). Have a fabulous weekend! I know I will.









For quite some time now I have LOVED the idea of a room (particularly a dining room) with modern furnishings and a very large gold framed vintage portrait hanging on the wall. I recently found this one and had second thoughts so I left it behind. (Perhaps a dumb move).
