Umbrella shopping

Tell me about your umbrella.

I know that one's umbrella isn't the best window into their soul, but they can say a lot about a person.  When I had a psychedelic, huge, striped umbrella, well I don't know what people thought about me.    It sure kept my dry in the rain, but it was cumbersome and not my style.

A few years later, my mom gave me one of those clear bubble umbrellas trimmed in lime green, and I loved it.  It was so fun, it let me see where I was going, and it kept my upper half dry even when the wind whipped the rain around.

Both umbrellas have since bit the dust, so I had to get myself a new one.  I wanted to find one that fit my style, not just any regular Wal-mart umbrella.  I hit the internet and I found a few good ones!  some are strange or interesting, but some are really cute.

Through my research, I found a favorite umbrella company, Tray6, and then I found that they are no longer in business (first world problems).  Turns out Fab had a few stocked up, and I was able to buy this beauty!  I am so pleased.

If it's going to be rainy, I like bringing my sunshine with me.  :)


  1. I had a clear bubble umbrella with black and yellow flowers on it in college and somebody STOLE it when it was hanging dry in the hallway! Still bitter about this. I guess I could take it as a compliment that I had such an awesome umbrella. Ha.

    1. One of my umbrellas was stolen in college, TOO! I think it was my bubble umbrella, and I must have found it on some hall just lying there. I was mad, too.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts! If there is something you want me to respond to specifically, feel free to send me an email; I'd love to chat.
