April Showers.....

You know that old saying "April Showers bring May Flowers" -- well I keep repeating that to myself on a daily basis to survive this gloomy rainy weather.  Which is pretty much what is happening outside on my side of the world. So to cheer me/you up and make sure that all of us look fashionable while walking in the rain I'm posting some gorgeous umbrellas we should all have, including some beautiful umbrella stands to make your home look utterly fashionable too! How cute is this houndstooth umbrella & matching hat from Zhush.
