Lovely Umbrellas

Pin It Now!




Yesterday while reading my November issue of Romantic Homes, I saw an ad for these beautiful umbrellas. You can pick the color of the canopy and the handle you want. I love the the black one but since it's $99 I probably won't be getting one any time soon unless I win the lottery. There are so many other things that I need more but it is nice to dream. Click here to see their website.
I still haven't received my Victoria but I did get the new Romantic Homes and I think they are finally getting better. The November issue is really good. It's almost looking like Victoria Magazine.

Those are lovely Cindy.
I made your Kale and sauage soup last night. I was really yummy, and my husband loved it. Thanks for the recipe.
No Victoria yet.

Well, my mother and I were sitting in her living room last night and I was bemoaning the fact I guess I didn't even order Victoria like I thought I had. I had emailed them and asked them if they had my subscription. They emailed me back and said no. About that time I heard her walker plunking across the floor and Voila! HER Victoria had arrived yesterday. Grrrr.... but maybe we'll just share this year's subscription since I am there most every evening anyway.. It's all about who gets custody of the magazine at the end that counts, right? Love those umbrellas.... but 99 bucks? fraid no.

Oh, I love those umbrellas and I need one! But not at that price. Today would not be a good day for an umbrella in this part of Oregon. We are having gusts of high winds and an umbrella would be a big mistake - or, maybe I could do a Mary Poppins act. I haven't read the new Romantic Homes yet. Can't wait to get my hands on it. Glad to hear it's improved - I think they have to with the re-emergence of Victoria. ~Adrienne~

I got that issue of Romantic Homes a few weeks ago - you must be on a much later cycle for getting the issues - which is a bummer.

Love those umbrellas!

Hi Cindy,
I love the shape of those umbrellas -- they look like a gothic arch!

Those are very pretty. Sometimes it is so hard to be an adult and hold off on buying something we just love I am there all the time.
Cindy I found a new blog, it is from another country so it is not in english but it is just amazing I am sure you would love it. It does remind me of you. Her is the link if it doesn't come up you can get it off of my blog. I hope you enjoy it, if you look at it make sure you scroll all the way down because the first couple of time I looked at it I missed the bottom part and it is all beautiful. Let me know what you think.All thought I love Victoria I do believe that Romantic Homes is my FAVORITE. I will have to pick one up.
Have a blessed day

These umbrellas are so refined! Yes, another dream not-coming-true for me too- adding shipping to the UK might double the price!
I'm still waiting for the royal mail to sort their backlog to get my copy of romantic homes my friend sent me... Can't wait!

Romantic Homes got so bad for awhile that I didn't renew my subscription. Glad to hear it is better. Better Homes and Gardens the same...once they got a new editor, the mag. got better, too. I AM STILL WAITING FOR MY VICTORIA, TOO. WHERE IS IT??????

I checked high and low at the supermarket today for VIC...nowhere to be seen...opened up RH and put it back...was not all that enthralled...but I would love a pink umbrella....the 4.00 price tag of these periodicals seems senseless when every other page is commericial....

are you with me on this???

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio said...

I saw those umbrellas too. I do love them...just not the price..

I love Romantic Homes. I have been a subscriber for quite come time. They are really started to seem a little more current and grown up. I love it.

I haven't had a chance to look at my RH yet, so maybe I will do that, since those umbrellas are adorable. And my Victoria hasn't come yet either! I'm so bummed! ~A :-)

Susie Q said...

Aren't they lovely? Pricey but oh so lovely!

We are trying your soup this weekend! Grace wants to help us make it...she adores soup!

I did not get my Romantic Homes but DID get my Victoria! Yours will be there soon~

Hugs,
Sue

Elzie said...

I sure would love to have one of those umbrellas. Maybe the rain is nicer then LOL?
I must be getting on and look for those lovely magazines you mention all the time. Still haven't seen any Victoria here. It's a pity!
Hope you have a great weekend.
Love Elzie

Lovely umbrella, but quite expensive! I love pink, but I think I would pick the light green. :)

Terri and Bob said...

I love those umbrellas, but like you, will not order one in the near future! I also made your soup, did I tell you that? I loved it but Bob wants me to try spinach instead of the kale.

Jennifer said...

You have a surprise waiting for you on my blog :)

I love the umbrellas. I am looking forward to see your issue of Victoria since here in Serbia we don't have it. So I hope you get it very soon and I hope you will share it.

Swoon! That is a beautiful umbrella. I just wish we had the rain to warrant such an extravagance. :)

I agree about R.Homes. They had a few rough issues there for a while. It is looking great again!
