ARR you ready for Spring?
The one thing I love about all the rain in Spring is getting to use fun interesting umbrellas.
Last week I thought about trying to make my own with hand painting designs.
I wanted to do something simple for a test- so I'd know if it worked before I tried anything more complicated. On my way to the dollar store to get a cheap umbrella I saw some pirate themed merchandise in a store window and thought a skull and cross bones would make a fun design since black umbrellas are easy to find.
Normally I like a colorful cheery umbrella on gray rainy days (currently I carry a large pink flower umbrella) but was surprised by how much I liked this rakish pirate design. Besides some of you know how much I love Halloween- this could be the perfect solution for rainy October days.
As soon as this was done it stopped raining and has been sunny ever since (not that I'm complaining about this gorgeous weather) so I'm still waiting for rain to test it properly.
But I'm pretty confident it'll stand up to the rain because I stuck it in the shower and let the water run over it for a few minutes. Which was pretty much like an instant monsoon.
