I found this gorgeous pic over at Apartment Therapy – I’m such a sucker for ridiculous whimsical things.
All it seems to do is rain around here at the moment. It’s that time of year in Sydney where the weather teases you with a few warm days of sunshine then slaps you back down to winter with blustery days. Apartment Therapy has a round up of 10 great umbrella stands that lifted my spirits. I especially like their idea of turning a big vase into an umbrella stand.
