Rainy Days & Mondays

I used to live in the city where you never went without an umbrella on rainy days. I had quite a few of different colors and sizes. Yesterday was a rainy day...bleak and cold...reminded me of the old Carpenter's song Rainy Days and Mondays. I just want to curl up with a good book, cozy warm blanket and while the hours away. I just couldn't wrap my head around anything, but errands needed to be run. Do you think I could find a single umbrella? Nope. So here are a few of my Tuesday's favorites...

Bunny Garden Umbrella Parasol from Mr Filthy Rotten

How many umbrellas do you own? Are you a flashy or subdued wearer...or for that matter...love the wet rat look that comes without carrying one?

Suns out today, smells fantastic and clean outside and spirits are high. Uh-huh...I'm going to have a good day!

Oh I love umbrellas!! I have a plain boring one - but it has lovey wooden handle. I am very fond of the silly ones - with ducks and goldfish. Blessings, Sarah

I have a closet full of umbrellas ... all colors, mostly from the Humane Society of the US and other non-profits. Keep a 'brella in the car. Wonderful post. Think I like the bunny 'brella ... :D

I always seem to break umbrellas somehow, so I stopped buying nice looking umbrellas and just go for the cheap plain ones. I have one big one that I keep in my car, and one smaller one that fits in my purse (love that one! It has saved me from unexpected pop-up showers many times)

I finally bought an umbrella before I went to NYC. It rained the whole time I was there, so I'm glad I brought it along. Its a cute umbrella from Benetton that grey with purple flowers on it. I like the flashy ones!

I have a few nice vintage umbrellas with fancy handles in a stand by my front door. I keep a nice sturdy fold up one in my car.
I love the first plaid umbrella best!
the bunnies and the ruffles are awesome!

I don't own an umbrella, but I sure do like the photos you posted. In my everyday life an umbrella wouldn't do any good, but a baseball cap is my best friend!

I have umbrellas everywhere - but I never bother to use them! Mine are all boring black or navy or red. I have a cool red and white striped golf umbrella that never gets used.
I'd love to get the Bunny Garden one. It's adorable...but it would sit unopened and unused in my closet or car.

Sadly, I own only black umbrellas. Boring! I do like the thought of having glorious umbrellas to match my many outfits. Great post!

BTW, I've had years of practice making switchplates. Made thousands of them!
Yay for Tuesday! Sorry to hear you had a rough day yesterday. Days like that bug me, when nothing works out quite right, there is an obstacle at every turn, and the entire day goes by without feeling one has accomplished anything.

Cute umbrellas (I love the umbrella from the oh-so-lovable Mr. Filthy Rotten)! I'm embarrassed to say that I have a large boring royal blue umbrella that I've been carrying for years.

Oh, I almost forgot - I passed the Lemonade Award on to you!
Where did you live? I live in the northwest and we tease people who use umbrellas as being foreigners :P Of course...that doesn't necessarily say much about our intelligence level since it rains all the time here!

I have about 6 and they range from fold up in your handbag type to big and colourful.

My favourite is a plastic clear bell shaped one.
What a wonderful theme for the week!
I would have never thought to do umbrellas :D
I haven't used an umbrella in quite some time...
I always like the feel of the rain-why hid from it is my motto.
