Vintage brolly lady
From a burlesque myspace site called Viva Valezz! Not sure where she got it from but ain’t it gorgeous.

In other news my brand spanking new¬†umbrella site just got its eighth customer, but I’m sure there are more of you out there. I’m just working on getting the international shipping sorted and then I can pop them out to you world-wide!

Yet another umbrella blog proves that there are more umbrella fans coming out of the woodwork…

This one is run by Canadian umbrella makers Cheeky and concentrates on finding humour in the rain. They’ve got some nice designs too… pretty, funky and flowery. Got to love the brolly world.
