Do you own a umbrella ?
Whats it look like?
Do you use it ?
I have 3. The biggest is red and white. It was a staff gift from a school I used to work in. The other two are plain Totes ones; not too big. One is floral: dark shades of purple, red, and yellow. The other is black with a white paisley design.
I have a bunch. My Mom use to buy me them for gifts. I have a yellow sunfloor, a Rainy Day In Paris print one, a Ralph Lauren print one with plaid and ducks on it, ummmm - let's see now - a large black and white golf one we use to walk the dog with when it is raining, a few small Totes we keep in the cars- mine is red and John's is black, and I have a two I like to keep to toss into my suitcase when we travel for just in case - one is a pretty silver and the other is a funky greenish yellow color with a high heel shoe design on itl
I have 2 a plain black one, which I got from the lost property box at work ages ago lol. and I bought one in England, its also black with pictures of dogs on it, its lost in the cupboard somewhere lol.
plain black in the car and a small one in my purse (no clue what it looks like). Mom got it for me and at a touch it will pop open and then another touch it will collapse. It's really nice when walking in somewhere and you have your hands full.
We have a massive black one (like a golf umbrella, but black), a smaller Mary Poppins black one with the wooden hook handle and several compact ones in a variety of colors. I have a couple that were "accessories" with purses I bought - one really pretty one matches the lining of my favorite purse. Never even opened it, though. I have one in my office in case we have a fire drill (or more likely a false alarm - we reschedule drills if it is raining).
Almost never. Umbrellas are for tourists. :-) That is why I always buy coats with good hoods on them! If we really need one, we usually use the gigantic one. Last time I remember using it was for track meets a couple years ago. Erick and I can set up our folding chairs next to each other -then if one of us holds the umbrella, it covers us both completely. It rained so hard at that meet - the entire time. It was miserable, but we were dry. Poor kids in their soaking sweats......
I hav e a couple small tote ones, one is red, the other Im not so sure of. The boys have a Spiderman one each and a Spnogebob one each. I also have a large black one with Edward and Bella from Twilight on it - a gift from the boys LOL
I use them if I have to, otherwise I just throw my hood up and go.
I just use my hoodie..
I have had them but between the girls and grands they have all disappeared..
And its suppose to rain for the next three days..
I have two, a floral one and a blue one with monster face and horns.
I love umbrellas! So funny that you asked this question... Amber and I have an ongoing argument about using an umbrella. I always have an umbrella in my purse and when I try to share with her, she will pull up her hood (if she has one) instead. I guess it may be one of those generational things... at least with us. I remember thinking that only old women wore boots when I was growing up. Maybe she feels that way about umbrellas.. lol.
The umbrella that i keep in my purse all the time is an Elvis umbrella. I have two of them exactly the same. I received one from my cousin Sheryl and one from my niece Ranae.
We got our taxes done Tuesday and I guess I was so relieved that we did not have to pay the IRS this year that I forgot my wet umbrella laying there on the floor! I did not want to stick it dripping wet, back in my purse. I could have kicked myself yesterday morning because I was NOT a happy camper when I remembered I did not have my umbrella in my purse.
I normally have extra umbrellas everywhere because i love them.... if my hair gets even a little bit wet, it goes way flat so I try to protect it at all times. Do you think I could find one of them in my house?? Nope... I was getting so aggrivated, I know I have at least 2 with the hospital logo on them, a red one that was my MIL's, a royal blue TOTE's umbrella AND an umbrella that came with a matching purse (or vice-versa rather) somewhere in my house!
I finally found one of the hospital umbrellas in the back of the coat closet hanging by the handle on a nail. I was SO relieved! Been using it every day since too .... it has been raining for 3 days now. Although I do love my rainy days, I am not fond of the cold temps that are coming along with it this time. Ugh...
This is one of my favorites -
