Happy Friday everybody! It's the best day of the week, with the whole weekend ahead of us. We'll be celebrating a friend's birthday on the beach tomorrow and then Mr Hello Olive and I have a date night planned. On a Saturday! Sunday will be quiet to recover from the shock of actually going out on a Saturday after dark :-)
Lately I've been...
Wondering (a) how on earth our landlord thought huge, black tiles would look good on a pale wall (there's a little vintage stove in the corner. I'm not mad about the skinny silver chimney either...), and (b) what colour and fabric we should reupholster our chairs in, and (c) whether we actually should reupholster the chairs since they'll no doubt get covered in all sorts of sticky goo. (By the way, that table in the shot was my gran's but we were lucky enough to get it when she moved in with my mom.)
Baking a very easy cake. It looks a bit flat (my cake tin is too big) but it sure was yummy!
Making traffic jams with The Boy.
Attempting to make our hideous brown couches look slightly more attractive with some cushions from here. (And asking myself why we thought buying brown living room furniture was a good idea. And they're so big. I would love to replace them but other than their ugliness there's nothing wrong with them...)
Hope you all have a lovely weekends planned. Have a good one! x
