Blue

It's been hot. Unbearable, in fact. The kids have spent quite a bit of time in the pool....where it's cool. I am too afraid, still, to shed the street clothes and don a teensy swimsuit so I sit on the patio in the shade of the blue umbrella that was supposed to be red. I really had my heart set on a red umbrella, but by the time I got to the store to get mine, they had blue, black and brown. The blue umbrellas were $20 less. I guess you can figure how difficult it was for me to decide on the blue one, right? Now that i have it home and it is set up on the patio, I am actually quite satisfied with the blue umbrella. I think it's really pretty. Earlier in the season, I picked up some twinkle lights designed specifically for umbrellas.....so of course I NEEDED the umbrella to go with the lights....right? .....and you know just how much I love twinkle lights, don't you?

Love the blue umbrella. Goes perfect with the blue skies of Colorado (that I still miss). Our deck umbrella has solar lights on it and we love sitting out in the evening with them on. ENJOY!!!

I love your umbrella photo! I am also looking for an umbrella but have yet to find that one that pulls my heart strings! Have a lovely merry happy day and love to you!

It's so stinking hot here in Maryland, too, and I'm with you -- shedding day time clothes for a bathing suit is SO not on.
