Brollies

Winter is almost over, but I would still like one of these umbrellas.


But yay! - I see they have a range of parasols as well, like this one in polkadots ...
and my personal favourite, the Ruffled Parasol ...

Summer sun, here I come!

editor - They are great aren't they? (Bit pricey though, but maybe one should see it as a work of art and display it hanging from the ceiling ... when it isn't raining, of course)
kendalee - I love the ruffled one - I think the parasols are fantastic and should come back in fashion - especially with our sun!
stephanie - He started with the idea of a shell as protection. Read an interview with him here:
