Would you wear and use a vintage pocket watch?

Pretty as a Parasol

Outshine the sun?!  Certainly!

Whether you are taking your doggie for a stroll, or heading to a Mardi Gras parade, a parasol is just the thing to keep the elements from darkening your day!

In case some of my visitors have not yet been there, I would like to direct everyone's attention to The New Orleans Umbrella Company on Etsy.

The artisan, lizmpetro, creates unique and creative umbrellas of many themes and materials.  You will find dots, buttons, ribbons, lace, frills, and feathers, in lines, layers, trims and tassels. (The pirate parasol is very cute, but what rhymes with 'pirate'?...)

She sews each element onto the umbrella by hand, and securely attaches beautiful handles made from vintage finds.  The prices are very reasonable for such a unique and useful item.

I have communicated with Liz, and she seems delightful.  =)

Do take a look!
