There is something very stylish about an item found in every home, car, backpack and pocketbook.
It's the Umbrella.
We all have one, or two, or in my case (I think) six. Yes, I have quite a few Umbrellas tucked away in different locations ready for when the heavy rains of Florida hit.
Umbrellas have been seen in works of art.
Miss Jenny Matlock is doing her Alphabet Thursday on the letter "U"

Our Ancestors were thought to be very distinguished when walking with their Umbrella.
The famous have danced with their Umbrellas.
Hotels use Umbrellas as part of their decoration.
Love the way these light up the beach at night.
Speaking of the beach, this is where I could while away an entire afternoon.
Under my "White Umbrella"
Lets not forget the "Umbrella Drink".
In more modern times an Umbrella graces flavored drinks that are used to cool the senses and calm our nerves. Think the tiny Umbrella might keep our ice from melting?
Ahhhhh, so nice!
