Monday's pets on furniture

If you'd like to send me photos to include in next week's "pets on furniture" post, please ensure your photos follow my 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 then it may not make the cut. Photos, your name, location and a brief description can be sent to and PLEASE don't send closeups of your pet! Thanks!

***FYI: I am on holidays down south so there won't be a pet post next week but keep the entries coming and POF will be back the following week. Thx!

This is Emu. We have so many pictures of her, on so many pieces of furniture, so it was hard trying to decide which to send.

Bijou, our chocolate miniature pinscher, loves all of our craigslist furniture. This picture caught her on a Sunday morning right after she finished skyping all of her boyfriends.

Freedom Winter 2013

Another sneaky peek at Freedom's latest collection in store from today. Thanks Freedom for sending along  this pic of the Casper dining table. Cool, modern, sleek. Like the lighting too. Must jump on the website and see what it is.

Dear Mr West ... er, um, ... Jonathan,

Bit overwhelmed here. Not sure exactly what to say. I ... well ... I really, really like your work. Cool shots, great light, beautiful colours.  Love the way you capture the sense of wabi sabi, of imperfection. that's it. Gee I guess it wasn't hard after all to say what a super photographer you are.

Random favourites as of late

Before I get into the juicy bits of this post, I thought I'd let you in on a little tidbit of info. Monday when Jo heads home from Sydney, I'll be flying in to my favourite vacation destination - Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Winters here in Ottawa SUCK, they are long and cold and this year, very snowy. I am sick of this weather and desperately need to get away from it and my chaotic life. I will be spending 9 days enjoying the sun, sand, sangria but not to worry, I have been working my a** off double time this past week getting posts ready to publish during my absense so you won't even miss me. I can't freaking wait!
