Monday's pets on furniture - part 2

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 desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)

"This is my sweet fancy rat Nim, playing in a pile of tribbles on our Eames rocker. Sadly she passed away yesterday, just days after this photo was taken. We miss her so much!"
-Allison (Ottawa, Ontario)

"I was trying to take a picture of my newest piece of furniture to post on flickr, but my little cat wanted to smell it and explore it at the same time!!! It´s in every photo I took that morning."
- Sofia (Lisbon, Portugal)

"This is Biber who belongs to Jeanette in Potts Point. Biber was very happy to pose on this antique French table for a Come Over Sunday shoot."
- Rachel

"This is Ptolemy, who I found as a stray kitten here on the streets of Brooklyn. He likes sitting on this chair so he can watch me sitting on the couch."
- Stephanie (New York City)

"I send you a picture of my new black leather sofa, with my little yorkshire Calinka who has found the large armrests are very comfortable and likes to jump on as soon as possible. So she can look on the front door."
- Catherine (Bordeaux, France)

"This afternoon I photographed a wonderful home, and the Peaches the family bulldog stole the show!! This whole house is cozy, warm and well styled...it really felt like the set of a Nancy Meyers film. Their 7 month old baby bulldog followed me from room to room stepping in to frame, as if she was art directing the shoot for me."
- Bethany

"Nestled on his preferred sofa, Murray enjoys a holiday slumber with his red cashmere blanket."
- Jennifer (New Jersey)

"This is our English Springer Spaniel, Razi.  She will be 15 in February!  Isn't she adorable on our red chair?"
- Carly + Elizabeth (Michigan)

"One of my beautiful eight cats, Vassourinha, her name means broom in Portuguese ( when she was little she loved to play with the broom). Here she is resting at my green pouf."
- Vilma (Oporto, Portugal)

Amanda McLauchlan

I remember finding photographer Amanda McLauchlan's portfolio a few years ago and being blown away. What's better than a stunning portfolio? A stunning portfolio updated. This Australian photographer has it. Gorgeous shots full stop! Serene, rich, evocative.

Freezing cold days and a little photo shoot

It's freezing cold here in Ottawa and I hate winter with a passion. But yesterday my mood was uplifted with a visit from a photographer at my home for a little photo shoot. It was alot of fun and I was especially stoked that he really wanted to get some of my cats in the photos (which turned out to be hilarious, trying to get 7 cats to sit still). It worked out great amazingly and I can't wait to see it in print. For the shoot I did a bit of redecorating around the house - necessary as my home has been in a bit of a state of disarray since my husband moved in back in May (with all his crap stuff). When the photographer left I took the opportunity to snap some photos while the house was clean and fur-free.

That was just a teaser photo...you'll have to click over to my page to check out the rest. :-)

Rainy days and rubbish skips

My weekends are being devoured by new old house jobs. The painters start on Monday and to ensure our weekend is action packed my husband has hired a rubbish skip for the week. Think of me as the rain pelts down, lugging stones and rubbish from the backyard and removing old flyscreens and strange bits of timber nailed to walls for unfathomable reasons. The next old house before video is up on my page as well as a few of my recent thrift  and secondhand store finds like my new murano glass bowl on a thrifted ikat. That glass is almost edible! Yum!
