Are all my fellow Canadians looking forward to the long weekend? I am excited that the sun has come back out and hopefully it will last all weekend. I was finally able to drag all my plants back outside, now that the threat of frost has gone away. I am hoping to spend the weekend sitting outside and catching up on some books (and working my way through a pile of cake pops I got for my birthday).
In order to make my mini-vacation to the balcony more enjoyable, I got some chair cushions!
I got these at HomeSense and it was sooo tough to pick. They had tons of cute patterns and colours and I probably stood there longer than is normal staring at them. But eventually I saw these navy and white striped babies tucked away in another place and I loved the simplicity of them (versus a busy pattern). Plus navy and white is so classic and reminds me of being on a boat! I had no idea if they were the right size for the chairs, so I was prepared to have to return them and end up DIYing something, but thankfully they are a perfect fit! Hurrah!
I still need to get a coffee table out here (I have ideas, but keep changing my mind) but pretty soon I think this balcony is gonna be doneski. Hopefully right in time for my bathroom makeover so I won't get too bored ;).
In other news, I think my one plant is about to bloom!
I'm pretty excited, because this means I have NOT killed this plant, which is quite an accomplishment for me.
What are your plans for the long weekend? I am going to do some spring cleaning and work on some blog projects, but mostly I plan on relaxing!
