ABC Wednesday - U

Umm! What to do for this week - U. I have been unduly undecided until now. And given that I am still under pressure I decided to take the easy route and go with Umbrella.

I have several in various colours and size and that is simply because I have been caught out a few times in the pouring rain and had to buy another (whilst knowing I had others at home keeping dry). These are just two under which I manage to keep reasonably dry!





The smaller, red one, is an ideal size for popping into a fairly small handbag.



Thanks to Mrs Denise Nesbit and her ABC Wednesday team, who host this each week. For more (interesting) looks at the letter U please click here.

I have the same problem. Most of my umbrellas stay very dry!
You have some very pretty patterns there.

Umbrellas sound like a perfect U post from the UK. :))

It was a difficult letter for me as well (can't wait for X! lol)
Love your umbrellas - we won't be needing those for a few months!

The umbrellas are unusually neat. I love the red and white one. Looks like it might add warmth, too! :)

Love your umbrellas, Anne, - seeing as how the one with the cats is spoken for - a number of times, I will be content with any colourful one to brighten up a rainy day.

Wanda said...

I am so amazed at the variety of umbrellas. We have 4 and none of them even come close to yours. They are as unique as the people that carry them.

Good job... I like that you used Umbrellas...

Tarun Mitra said...

beautiful umbrellas :)

Perfect U subject Anne! The most useful thing at the moment, and so colourful:)

I love the kitty one! I don't think I have ever bought an umbrella, although I have found plenty on my coach (at one time I found a whole box of them: thirty in total!).

Cheryl said...

I'm getting very frightened. I truly am afraid of these things. 90% of the U posts I've read so far are umbrellas. Eek!

Gattina said...

These are nice umbrellas, too beautiful for me, because I always forget them somewhere ! I don't know how many I lost already !

Mom vs. the boys said...

those are fun umbrellas! I used Umbrella too today, it was a toughie~

Jingle said...

pretty ones.
what a lovely take.
I enjoyed the colors and delicacy on them.

Deb said...

pretty Umbrellas....

ChrisJ said...

Both are quite wonderful umbrellas -- but I think the one with the cats wins by a tail(or a whisker).

Retiredandcrazy said...

I have an umbrella fettish. I love it when it rains and I can use one.

I do love a cheerful umbrella on a dreary day!
