My Flat: The Living Room "After" Edition


The living room. The heart of any home, right? Well, I guess my heart is full...of furniture. Curtains have been hung. Rug laid.


The entryway set.


Mirror hung.


Books cased.


Even the trinkets have been trinkled. (I'm feeling so good, I'm making up words!)


So the only thing left to do with this living room is the living bit.

It looks very cozy. I'm wondering if I could sit in your living room, sipping tea (pinky fingers up) and speaking with a British accent.

I do make a good scone...
