Why oh WHY does it have to snow so damn much!!! People, there has been a blizzard here since last night. We got about 2 feet of snow. School was canceled, roads were crappy, and I only managed to get HALF my driveway shoveled. At the moment I am psyching myself up for round 2 of shoveling. But before I go, I thought I would post a photo that makes it seem not so bad, and that got me smiling. (Wish I looked that cute while I was shoveling).
Update: OH MY GAWD I am so happy I want to cry...actually I sort of did. I just bundled up and went outside to discover a totally snow free driveway (including the 5' high mountain at the bottom). There are tire tracks all over - I think it was a guy a few houses down who has a 4-wheeler with a plow attached to it. If he were still outside he would have got a big wet kiss from me. See? There are some good people out there. So thank you neighbour guy, and my back thanks you too.
Jonny Valiant is a photographer from Australia with an incredibly keen eye for creating beautiful photos. "Jonny indulges his 15-year passion for precision still-life photography and his love of interiors with a healthy voyeuristic obsession with exactly why people put the things in their houses that they do." He's contributed to magazines such as Australian Vogue, Vogue Living, Architectural Digest, Inside Out, Home Beautiful and InStyle. I love the eclectic style of the first group of photos, and how he has captured the mystery and personality of these spaces.

Lisa from Shelter sent us this lesson in deportment. "Now this couch has seen better days, but in its heyday it was a real looker! The lovely dog is Bea (Beatrice), a true lady, see how her legs are crossed. FYI: This is not my couch or dog, I lived with both a few months in 2004." Wait to you see the cats that we're featuring tomorrow.
