Form or Function

There are many days (like today) when a beautiful vintage umbrella would serve more than one purpose. 1. Keep my dry. 2. Make me happy (to look at it, to use it, to have it). A small collection of them would even more fun. Of course that would make it necessary then to have a pretty vintage umbrella stand, wouldn't it?!

I have always alllowed myself a good quality large umbrella, and have had some beauties over the years. Wonderful things!

So true!! It's a shame that I never invest in a good quality umbrella! Then again here in Cali you don't get many chances to use it. It's finally sprinkling a bit here in SoCal.

I love that umbrella in the first picture. I would love to get one like that. The funnest one I've found so far is a clear one, you can watch the rain fall onto it!

A clear umbrella is what started all of this! I'd especially love to have one of those. One that's really deep with scalloped edges that way all of the light from the grey day can still come in.
