A Sparkling Vintage Life

U is for Umbrella

It’s been an unusually rainy spring here in North Idaho. I try not to complain too much, as lots of moisture now will lessen the fire hazards of summer. Nevertheless, it’s dreary to look out on gray skies and raindrops day after day.

To the rescue: a cheery umbrella! Or brolly, as the Brits say. There are so many cute ones on the market nowadays, it’s enough to make a girl wish for rain just to be able to carry one. (So we’re clear, an umbrella is carried in the rain. A parasol protects from the sun.)

Looking forward to the parasol days to come! In the meantime, I’m looking for the sort of umbrella that will make me want to sing in the rain!

    Well, somehow, I lost the habit to use an umbrella since when I lived in Ireland. Wonder why 😉
    As for the parasol, I’ve noticed that many asian women still use it today. Sometimes I happen upon them here in verona.
