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...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 and a brief description can be sent to desiretoinspirekim@hotmail.com and PLEASE don't send me closeups of your pet!)

"This is my dog Roxie and her friend Canopener posing for photos for my dog product line, Roxiedoggie. They look super regal in these chairs."
- Maya

"Arthur is the little guy in the house. He likes to sit and watch my husband and I run around between the kitchen and living room. He's such a sweetheart :) Can't imagine our place without him. Wish he'd stay still for more photos!"
- Ashley

"This is my cat Pixie perched on top of the coffee table - a consignment store find that I painted my favorite color of green."
- Heylee

"My pug, Raoul, enjoying the cafe at the design store Merci in Paris."
- Donna

"This is our Newfoundland puppy Douglas at 8 weeks old, 18 lbs on the day we brought him home. He ran around like a wild man for about half an hour and promptly zonked out under this chair for the rest of the day. Now Douglas is 1 year old, bigger than this chair and still sleeps on his back."

Stalking in neutral territory

Two facades two very different houses. Both with a neutral colour story, both with the warmth of timber balanced by stone. I've been stalking again but I can't make up my mind which one I like more. I love the period features of the second home, the warren of rooms but I love the retro modern vibe of the first. Exposed trusses, rich plank walls, clean modern lines. Dilemma isn't it! Fortunately I can afford neither. Phew! Links here and here while they last.

Another mag feature!

I don't want to steal Jo's birthday thunder (see post below), but in this case I think I need to make an exception. Jo just received a magazine from Singapore called Home & Decor that we're featured in...as Bloggers of the Month!! They even included a photo of each of us and one of my kitchen. :-) WOHOO!!

Birthday wishes

Although it's still Sunday here in Ottawa, there's a 14 hour time difference between here and Jo's part of the world, so it's already Monday in Brisbane. And Monday happens to be Jo's BIRTHDAY!!! I thought I'd put this up now so Jo sees this when she wakes up and (unfortunately) has to go to work. :) Happy birthday blog buddy!! I hope you have a fantastic day and get lotsa pressies. Speaking of pressies, I know exactly what I would get you if I wasn't in dire need of every cent I have to put towards an upcoming wedding and house renovations...a moroccan wedding blanket, which we have both been coveting for quite some time. Unfortunately all you get is a photo (via Living Etc.).

And since it's almost Monday I thought I'd throw in a couple photos of Jo's dog Mickey laying on some furniture in her office.

  

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
