New layout of the livingroom

Here are some photo's of our new sofa and the new layout of our livingroom.

The old situation with the new sofa, but we thought it was a bit to crowed now:



And the new situation since today, with some fleece blankets to keep the sofa a bit safer for our cat, Snoopy:




Oh, and I really have to show you the new pillows I bought this morning. I really LOVE them! :)


Incoming mail of Friday, February 15, 2013


Yesterday I got this lovely letter from my Dutch penpal V. I didn't had time to post anything on my blog yesterday, because we got our new sofa and I was really tired in the evening. So I didn't do anything anymore. Today we changed it again, because we weren't happy with the layout of the livingroom like we had it then. I will also post those photo's later... When I'm behind the computer aging. Now I'm blogging on my mobile phone. :-)
