Umbrella – ella – ella

April 29, 2013 at 11:15 AM 2 comments

This past weekend was a beautiful sunny weekend in San Francisco.  Our summers are off season compared to the rest of the country.  It’s terribly foggy here in actual summer so spring and fall are when we catch all of our rays.  On Sunday, Graham and I wanted to sit out on our deck but little monkey can not be out in sun and we don’t have any shade on our deck.  Graham pulled a genius move, it may have been ghetto genius but it was still genius.  He took a winter umbrella and attached it to the bar-b-que.  Problem solved.

Ha ha.  This clearly is not the solution.  I actually need to get an outdoor umbrella.  Thank you Josie for providing me with a need to buy.

Since it’s a tiny space…

I’d like to just have fun and go whimsical…

Here is what I have found in terms of umbrellas that are tremendously out of our price range but a girl can dream.


Jonathan Adler – Outdoor Pagoda Umbrella


Bellamee – Pom Pom Umbrella

Santa Barbara Designs – Pink Flamenco

Wouldn’t it be fun to have such a whimsical umbrella out on my tiny deck?  Josie and I vote for this look –


Majority rules in our family so pink ruffles it is.
