Item Of The Week ~ Patio Umbrellas

I may be being overly optimistic here ~ it's been cloudy and raining non-stop on Long Island and, before I build and decorate an ark, I need to turn my mind to sunny days!


Check out all the different designs and colors patio umbrellas come in these days. I love not only the pagoda style of the black & white umbrella, but also the fact that it's black & white.

This umbrella (above) looks almost like a lamp with it's drum-look shape. Love the vibrant colors.

This one reminds me of a circus tent (above)! I love the teal/aqua/turquoise one in the photo below.

Just make sure you close your umbrella up tightly on windy, stormy days! They do have a tendency to lift up like projectiles (not that I had a broken bathroom window that was hit by one and then landed bending the whole umbrella up).

The picture above is an umbrella in my favorite color, but even more important, it is where I'd love to be right now!

I liked them all for different reasons, too, Jackie! I need SUN! : )

I really like the black and white one too, Carmen, plus it goes well with my blog colors! (Ha!) Glad it worked out that it was the first pic for this post!

Perfect timing, just yesterday I blogged about inspiring outdoor patios as I am in search of outdoor furniture. This will be a great place to start looking. wind spinner

I adore these umbrellas! I wish they were sized as personal umbrellas as well — I’d love to walk in the rain if I had one of them, especially the pink ruffly one.
