Umbrella magic....

I'm joining Mary for
Please pop over and meet
some other lovely bloggers.
We would love you to join us!

On a recent visit to my
local garden centre
I discovered this inspiring
display of pretty umbrellas
hanging from the ceiling!

Such cheerful designs
for a dreary rainy day,
don't you agree!

I just couldn't resist including
in my mosaic
the sweet bunnies, books and
my embroidery I must work
on over Easter!

Thank you so much dear friends
for popping in to my blog
and leaving such lovely comments!

I'm working over the next two
weeks, but I hope to visit you all
before the Easter break.

À bientôt

be kind to one another

Love that Easter mosaic, and don't the umbrellas make for pretty pictures. The pansy one is gorgeous. Happy Easter!

Donna Heber said...

What precious umbrellas Shane! Any one of these would really cheer up a rainy day. Beautiful mosaic.

Hi Shane,

These photos are GORGEOUS!! I love your mosaic, especially the bunny and the flower petals. Those umbrellas are sooo pretty. I think that's a great idea for a spring garden center display, and I'd love to have one of those beauties for the umbrella stand in our foyer. :)

Have a wonderful day!

what lovely umbrellas! I wish I had one! My mother used to have a beautiful floral sunshade. I wish it was still around.
Have a wonderful week. I am joining you through Mosaic Monday.

sending you sunshine and love from sunny AZ.

Lorrie said...

Those umbrellas would certainly brighten up the gray rainy days here. Sweet bunnies, too. Have fun working on your embroidery.

I like the bunny peeking over the blooms in your mosaic Shane. And, those are mind kind of umbrella! Plain ones are just that, I once saw a lady with butterflies all over hers - that's the one I'd like.
Hope your couple of weeks at work go quickly for you.

Beautiful umbrellas - but I have to admit I never think to use one. There's one stuck under the seat in the car that's moved from car to car as we get another one and I don't think it's ever been so much as opened. The bunny in the flowers picture is sooo cute, btw.

The mosaic is so Spring and Easter combined. Love the umbrellas.

Linda said...

Such a pretty array of umbrellas! I would love to have one, but don't know if I'm extrovert enough when it comes to using it. Nevertheless, they are lovely. Happy Easter whatever you are doing!

Dorthe said...

Your personal collage is so beautiful, my dear Shane,- such lovely photoes collected, and the umbrellas looks gorgeous, what colours and patterns, yes they truly lights up a rainy day!
Hugs and love to you, and happy Easter week.

Carole said...

Gorgeous umbrellas Shane, and wouldn't they brighten up a rainy day.
Have a wonderful Easter.

Mary said...

I would love one of those for a grey, rainy day - perhaps I'd actually go out and walk in the rain (like I do when I'm home in England!) but rarely do here as I'm totally spoiled with a car right outside the door!

Don't work too hard dear --------we look forward to another post soon. Have a beautiful and blessed Easter.

Dearest Shane,
It is sad that the Bunny season will be almost over with after Easter... So pretty and sweet.
Hope you have a meaningful Holy Week and a very Happy Easter!

Hi Shane, and oh what a darling bunny you have photographed. I like how you photographed the umbrellas, they gave me a feel of Monet's garden~

Linda said...

what a lovely mosaic Shane. And those umbrellas...I'll take one of each! They sure would brighten any rainy day :)

Pondside said...

An umbrella like one of those would make the greyest day a happy one!

Dear Shane,

Hope your work is going well.
Love all your pretty photos, the bunny is sweet and love your embroidery you are working on.
The umbrellas are pretty too, my favourite is the pansies.

Wishing you a happy Easter

Love the beautiful umbrellas!
Take care and hope you can go to visit France again very soon. I can't even imagine not seeing your grandchildren for a year. One week is my maximum.
