Pink Saturday - pink umbrella

Pink Saturday - Beverly at the blog "How Sweet the Sound" hosts Pink Saturday. Let the color pink inspire you!


The rains are back. It started raining Friday morning, and now - at 8:51 pm on Friday as I write, it's still raining.

I have an umbrella - one of those compact umbrellas that collapse and fold into something that fits into your handbag. I got it at a drugstore or a discount store, and I don't even remember why I chose this one.

It's pink.

Yes, pink.

Bright shocking pink.

It's easy to find, since it stands out in a dark and cluttered closet. It adds a note of cheerfulness to a gloomy day. It makes me visible on the street when I'm walking with it. At work, when people put their umbrellas out by the loading dock to dry out, I can always recognize mine. And the best part?

I figure that neither my husband nor my son will make off with this one.

Stay warm and dry this Pink Saturday, everyone!

Update, Saturday 6:37 AM: It's still raining!

Now that is a brilliant idea! A shocking pink umbrella is one that I wouldn't leave somewhere either because I would see it! Now, I've got to find one like yours! Love it!

Happy Pink Saturday...

XO,

I love that umbrella. It would make me smile, too!
My husband bought me a special umbrella about 10 years ago via a catalog. It has Van Gogh's iris painting silkscreened on it.

In the midst of our record-making storm here, I think you have it worse with mudslides there.
Stay safe!

What a fabulous shot! The rain looks like glass glitter on your pretty pink umbrella. At least it's not snow. We got two feet of it last night! Have a great weekend and please stop by for a visit if you're able. Terri

That umbrella is a pretty color.

We got a different kind of precipitation this week: the sky opened up and buried us under thirty inches of snow.

Love that pink! Would make rain seem cheerful!

Makes you easy to spot, and you will certainly keep it to yourself now!

Happy Pink Sat, G.

I love your PINK umbrella. You are so right.....I'll be it would be lots easier to locate than the black ones I have. I think I must add that idea to my "wish list"!

We're still getting snow...nothing like the east coast....thankfully!
