Friday faves

Well so much for my happy sunny thoughts! This weekend is supposed to be rainy. Slightly warmer, but very wet. We are hoping it will be warm enough (and have enough patchy dryness) to bring the perforated metal pieces for the rad covers out to the garage and spray paint them. This is seriously holding up the project. You are supposed to spray paint in temperatures between 10-25 degrees, in a well ventilated room of course.  Well Toronto temps in February and March don't quite meet the requirements but I'm hoping the predicted 6 degree Saturday forecast comes true so we can finally get them done! We did the coat of spray primer inside...really bad idea. Had to open all the windows and leave the house for a good hour after that one.

In an attempt to "honour" the rain, here are some Friday faves for a wet weekend.


Doesn't this remind you of looking out a car window in the rain?  That or every music video for every early 90's ballad. haha. Via Rain Embellished 
Umbrella built for two (I believe a VERY practical friend actually gave this to another friend for her move to Vancouver :) ) - via Glam Chic

London Fog via just bella - Christine over at just bella blogged about this on Wednesday and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since...
A good read would make for a perfect weekend. I just finished the Stieg Larrsson trilogy, and am onto a new book which I'm not too into. Any recommendations for good rainy day reading?  I hope to catch up on my new Style at Home, Real Simple, and Fashion magazines over the weekend.

Rainbows are everywhere in Hawaii, this one in particular is in Maui.
sigh.

Personally I love the rain! Especially when we have snow to get rid of! That two person umbrella is hilarious.

I really need one of those umbrellas for 2. That's awesome. I am just finishing the book "The Elegance of the Hedgehog" and would highly recommend it. I hope you get your painting done this weekend. Those of us in the rainy west can advise you to wait until it's right because we've all had projects bubble from the inclement weather xo Carol

At least rain means its above zero temperatures... ;) Have you read "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society"? Its one of my all time faves. I heard the Hedgehog book is great as well. It's on my list!
