Living it up in Liguria

Mads of BunkaMadison blog wrote to us over the weekend to contribute to our 'dog on a chair or some piece of furniture' theme. The photos she sent of her pooch Eva (her dog-child) were too cute not to post, so they are below. But she also sent a link to her Flickr photos, where she has included many photos of her totally gorgeous home in Liguria, Italy. I HAD to post those as well. Especially after I heard she built the kitchen with her own hands, got into a fight with the architect in the planning stages, and had a builder who was on crack so in the end she ended up designing it, project-managing it, and finishing the build herself (hence the kitchen). I love it all, such a wonderful space and OMG that view!!!! Her home is a work in progress so be sure to check her blog for updates. (Thanks Mads!)
