You've featured my kitty Lulu before. Here's another pick if you wish to post. (YES!!! This is one of my favourite pet entries EVER!!! - Kim)

Early last week we were contacted by the Country Cat Sanctuary because they had taken in a Siamese named Maurice that needed some special care. His owner had gotten herself knocked up and kicked him and his sibling out into the garage ALL WINTER. Before anything else awful could happen to him Gwen (who runs the sanctuary) offered to take him but being caged up was stressing him out, and he was overweight, so she thought we could help. We picked him up Wednesday and he is an absolute sweetheart. He was totally relaxed within 10 minutes of being at our house and now follows us around like a dog. He is declawed on all 4 paws (AGH! Don't ever do this to your cat!!!) and is HUGE. And we love him. But we'd love for him to find a permanent home so we can continue to help out with fostering. If anyone out there is interested in adopting him give me a shout. 

I took this photo about a half hour after we got him. 

Later that day when former feral Frankie got his first glimpse of him. LOL!

Yep, he settled in no problem. :)

The Yard

This Georgian house is the home of hám interiors director Tom Cox. Situated in Oxfordshire, it has been sympathetically renovated and extended with new kitchen and beautiful bespoke furniture pieces. A limited palette and natural materials allow the fine details to shine. It's all about attention to detail, personality and country style.

Stalking Superman's house

It may be a little Clark Kent at the front but it's all superhero out the back. I'm stalking an 1890s weatherboard cottage in Lilyfield, Sydney with its modern extension by Nobbs Radford Architects. A a great light-filled, fun family home. Link here while it lasts.

Working on a Saturday

Week after week I chant my mantra. If you have to drag yourself into work on a Saturday it helps if it's somewhere stylish. (It also helps if it's the designer's own office space.) Studio 45 in Manly, Sydney is the home of Marston Architects. Two work zones connected by a plywood cube housing the kitchen, all contained within a heritage listed terrace house.
