Attached is a picture of Sponge, the cat. While he enjoys a variety of hobbies (e.g., bird watching, dog management), his true passion is catching rays in his Hovmand Olsen lounge chair. He commandeered the chair shortly after restoration and now refuses to lounge elsewhere, putting up a good defensive game when necessary.

This is our beloved Citrouille…she passed away on March 2nd at almost 20 years old! This photo illustrates beautifully her presence…always center stage, very active (broke many vases) and more than anything, very loving and accepting of all the other fur balls that came in after her. RIP Citrouille xox. Art by Simon Rochon, table and chairs by Ligne Roset.

His name is Pixel. He is taking a Monday nap on our bed, his favorite place to sleep. His past time is playing with his toy mice and cuddling up in a warm cozy spot.

Every Monday when I look through your posts I think that my precious kitten Jellie (1.5 years old) would fit perfectly in your weekly series.

Our transplanted rescue cat, Singha, enjoying her new home in London along with her Ethan Allen leather recliner purchased in Calgary almost 10 years ago. The 20 year old B&B Italia bench (purchased from Robert Sweep in Calgary) is another favourite item belonging to all in this household.
A couple from me. Yesterday afternoon I was in the kitchen for a bit and when I can came back into the living room I spotted a row of cats in a sun beam on my Moooi carpet. It was about -30 outside, go figure. And then Lucky blending into my shaggy stool.
One year ago today, I brought this precious little ball of dynamite and snuggles home from the animal shelter! Midna (yes, named after the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess character) is playful, fearless, scrappy, mischievous, and so heart-meltingly adorable you can’t help but scoop her up for cuddles (and take the consequences). She follows me around the house when I’m working on projects and she has to stick her nose in everything – and she absolutely HAS to sit on the counter and watch me put on makeup, all the while trying to steal my brushes. All in all, we are the best of frenemies, and she sleeps on my legs every night ☺ P.S. She also matches EVERYTHING in my house, which was completely unintentional but totally awesome. #adoptdontshop #calicocat #thegatheredhome
I’ve recently come across @shopviaraiz and to say I’m OBSESSED is an understatement. The collection of items that Jennifer has brought together from designers in Mexico is flawless. To quote Jennifer, because she is much more eloquent than I am- “Through the beauty of finely crafted wares I want people to experience a different aspect of Mexican culture. Mexico is cosmopolitan and design-forward. From gastronomy to architecture, Mexico has a powerful story to share on the world stage and I want to take part in telling it.”. Her space is a MUST SEE if you are in portland. There’s only a few of these blankets left so go go go!. #dogmilk
One of the rare shots of Rosie. (She really doesn’t like to be up on the furniture much!)…Years ago I inherited my sister’s sweet Rottweiler rescue, Princess, when my sister was terminally ill. A few months after she came to us, Princess passed away from a liver condition. I didn’t have the heart to tell my sister, knowing that she would be heartbroken. So I was on the hunt to adopt another Rottie in need, and name her “Princess —–” (In this case Princess Rosie) So when my sister asked how “Princess” was, we could say “Great”. I always felt some guilt about it, but I believe I saved my sister some heartache at a difficult time, and I believe she would have done the same thing for me. She saved so many dogs, cats and even possum in her lifetime – a true animal lover and advocate. 💕
