Today, we are about to venture into the land of telling lies. Fortunately, they are happening only in a story (and should always remain only in fiction)
Take a look:
..and from here start the "little" lies..
Sometimes, a small lie like this one can cause a lot of, ehmm, fun. This, of course, is only meant to entertain the readers - and most definitively NOT to be used as a guide (you know, there's another kind of stories: the ones about identity theft.. oh, but that's too scary for a Sunday).
On this Sunday, I would like to share another little fragment of my life with you. You ALL know quite well by now that I'm slowly moving toward finishing up my home. Some of it is still a work in progress, but the progress is evident. I've started with a dilapidated old place that I've managed to get for myself last autumn, and now I'm at furnishing...
What you are about to see is my living room. For most of you it might seem like a tiny space (only 4 meters by 2.8 meters), but for my needs and my minimalist & fugal lifestyle it's enough.
Please, take a look:
On the left:
wall-to-wall sofa (this one I ordered, it's new and YES, it's beige),
a coffee table (found in the used shop)
and a tapestry (mom got that some 35 years ago and never found the place for it)
on the right:
a corner shelf (same used items shop as the table and the TV stand from before)
holding an old 1970s Siemens phone (had it in the attic)
I'll add a lemon tree as soon as it's time for it to move in. :)
No shelves? No. Shelves tend to attract little "nitty-dotty-rural-revival-bitty-botty" items - you know, all the sea-shells from that sea trip back in 1995, the stained yet beloved embroidered coaster, the chipped figurine and the rest of paraphernalia.. what I call "dust gathering items" :) Shelves tend to attract book that are never read, empty perfume bottles, stacks of jewelry cases.. Shelves become something we don't dare to look at, because we can't deal with sorting them out.
No. No shelves here. :)
What say you?
Do you have a place that needs a bit of attention?
Have you done some de-cluttering?
What is the favorite item in your living room?
Have a wonderful Sunday!
