TAKE A WORD 23 -UMBRELLA


Marie, aka Ozstuff, has chosen UMBRELLA as our word for inspiration for this week at Take a Word. And that reminded me of the time our April showers turned into constant rain (days and days and days of it) until the ground was just one great big splashy puddle of water and we had to wear swimwear and travel about in upturned umbrellas.  Oh my goodness, those were the days!

Great theme Marie.

Credit to Kubivet for the 'weather' and the big splashy puddle, whilst Efie provided the umbrellas and the very daring ladies were in the Public Domain.

Thank you for looking.

At least it looks as if the sun's trying to come out! How tres' chic of the bikini clad lass to have an umbrella to match! This clever bit of nonsense left me smiling...as always, Ann! Well done.

I love the idea of going sailing in an umbrella which just happens to feature a map on how to get to wherever the lady is going! What a delightful flight of fancy this is. Fantastic artwork and, as usual, great and original ideas brought to life.

Those where the days indeed can't find a big enough umbrella to hold me in for those rainy days, just don't make them like they used to ! Fantastic whimsical piece.
