Umbrella Fetish

Ok, so I may be going a little mad.
But I truly, unbelievably, LOVE LOVE LOVE umbrella's!!
Their colors....there designs... here I will only have a few posted
But there are so MANY different forms of an "umbrella."

Just their colors alone delight me!
Make me want to splash away in my wellies in some puddles!!!

Sad thing is.
I do OWN many umbrella's.
I just never ever use them.
Personally, I think they are a pain in the arse!

But to photograph them...
That is a whole another story!

Even a sad and lonely one can make me feel good.
Just in the beauty of it.

It makes for a Good Life to find such a simplistic item to make you smile!!
Enjoy Rebel's and check out who else has A Good Life Wednesday tale to tell!

Till I shoot some more...


  1. Your photos are so beautiful my friend and umbrellas, though a pain in the ars to carry, are fun to look at especially with all the cute designs that they have. :)

  2. Beautiful photos -- really love the one with the orange umbrella. :)

  3. Dear Cat

    I LOVE your beautiful montage of umbrellas - the photographs are stunning!

    Thanks so much for joining me at Create With Joy & for spreading the news about my Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop! If you love cats, you are really going to enjoy my blog - my two boys are even known to take over the keyboard when I'm not around! (I won't tell you what they do with the few unlucky crickets that find their way inside my domain though - let's just say that "cricket" is one of their favorite sports!)

    Have a fabulous week & I am your newest follower!


  4. I agree ... I think there's magic in umbrella photos ... so many colors ...like balloons!

  5. What a nice post, makes one think that some of the things we use often in our lives are the most beautiful, and yet, we sometimes take them for granted.

  6. Oh!! The umbrellas are gorgeous!!! I love them!


  7. I have to check out these parties!! I will spend some time clicking them on your sidebar. I can probably link up with almost all of them!!! That would make me a bit of a crazy person, but since I am a crazy person it is fine!!!
    I too love umbrellas!!! I have a bunch of the really nice wood handled ones by my front door!! NO ONE ever uses them, but I love how they look!!
    I love your pictures of your umbrellas!! They are such pretty colors!!!

  8. We have the home of 'broken' umbrellas, they sit at the front door & rust & when we put them up on those odd occasions we decide not just to 'get wet' they usually turn inside out, or only extend on one side... not as pretty as your wonderful collection but usually makes us giggle ;)

  9. You're right! They do make great subjects for photography...with their graphic lines, just perfect!

  10. Wonderful!
    They make me smile!

  11. thanks so much for stopping by so i could visit this lovely place!

    love the images!


  12. I just discovered your lovely blog and have signed up as a follower. I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.


Thanks for taking the time to share your rebellion! It is much appreciated! YOU ROCK!
