Stormy Weather

A bit of a conflicting post, I'll be the first to admit that, but this oddly rainy season has inspired todays post in two directions; sight and sound.  For your listening pleasure a haunting rendition of the classic Stormy Weather performed by the wildly talented Martha Wainwright.  And, for your viewing pleasure (not that the video of Martha isn't enough) a few umbrella art installations.  So, without further ado...

  1. I love those quirky art installations! Nothing is as stylish as a beautiful umbrella on a rainy day.

  2. Scott-This is my favorite post of yours ever and I love them all. The music and those amazing umbrella art installations. Gorgeous. I agree with Stefan, a beautiful umbrella is so elegant. I saw a photo which I failed to keep of a foyer with a stylish umbrella stand and a whole bouquet of umbrellas in the same color. It was very chic!

  3. Stefan- It looks like Beth and I agree.

    Beth- That may be the sweetest comment that I've ever received! Thank you.

  4. Scooter! You always know the perfect things to say, to do, and apparently to post!

  5. I love a good umbrella (or parasol) ....these are beautiful....
