Livin'in a room

I'm still housesitting, about to go feed the horses and collect eggs from the hen house soon !
My only company inside the house is little kitten Romeo. My little brother and stepmum
will get back home sometime during the day, and dad is away for couple of days.
I'll be staying here, at my dad's house / stables until tomorrow. I said before
that I might be completely away, but I have published & read your comments
via mobile. I could use the computer but I don't want to really. I'll just rather enjoy
this "farm living" hehe with only a little piece of outside world (checking twitter &
comments :D I will reply to all of you tomorrow & through weekend.)
Well, I still wanted to post something today, so here's a little something
I saved to the blog archive for later view. :) 
The subject is new additions to our home !

We bought brand new looking brown sofa from my schoolmate for only 40 euros!
It's huge, comfy and ..perfect!
My dad and boyfriend S carried it down and up all the stairs,
thank you [even though they wont be reading this hehe]
From another friend of mine we got cd-tower for S, exactly the same kind as mine 
[can be found in these photos].
My friend wanted only 2 euros for that! But I also took "I <3 my cat" -pillow
for cat Sasu [my bf's family's] so paid 5 for both items.   I hope he'll
like it! The mirror is from JYSK and wings from Tiimari - craft etc. store.
There's also a little sign "Dream", from Sinooperi. These are all Finnish /
Scandinavian / European stores, so wont probably say anything to faraway visitors:]
Pillow on the right is from H&M, and on the left a b-day gift from my
boyfriend's mum to me (from AmandaB) Ooh what else is there,
that blanket is from Hemtex and it's the softest thing ever.
Makes feel all lovely and cuddly everytime you crawl underneath it.

Place to take a nap!

S's guitar in the corner with my magazine piles ..and other random stuff that needs to be organized.

I finally found frames for giveaway prize that I won. (host Pics-O-Andrea, photo the Charming)
Or to be more accurate, I had these all along.. used to belong to my grandad & his wife / my grandmum. 
Pappa past away, and she moved to another town last year to be closer to her own grandkids.
 And I got these lovely wooden frames, along with some other stuff :)
From the picture you can't really tell how big they are, the size of frames is about 41 x 52 cm.
 I need glass for it, and some background plywood or something.
Now there's only a piece of grey cardboard behind.
