A Spoon Full of Sugar...


A recent comment to one of my posts reguarding the delightful Julie Andrews reminded me of the very first style-crush that I ever had... on none other than Mary Poppins! I admit that I would watch that movie over and over- I loved the costumes and her polished and refined prescence... and most of all- her umbrella. While my siblings would fly kites... I would have a lovely parasol flapping behind me in hopes of being taken away..... thus when I found Bella Umbrella... I felt a nostalgic knot start to form deep in the pit of my stomache....


they rent vintage umbrellas for events.... and they ship nationwide.... and they are as cheap as $10.... and you can buy them if you love them enough.... and they have the "bixi" (shown) that transforms from the bouquet base to the umbrella handle- what a lovely bridesmaid gift...


you really can't go wrong with this one.... it's green... and a great way to shade in the summer... and prepare for showers in the spring... and just lovely all year round!

We rented these for a wedding last year and they were great! Although it didn't rain as forcasted, it didn't stop us from twirling them all day long!
