Romantic umbrella


This umbrella is one of the things I bought myself while in Italy.
When I saw it I knew I had to have it! As a matter of fact my husband was the one who noticed it first and knew I'll succumb to its seducing powers. How could I not?
It is intricately, richly and finely embroidered. And soo romantic!


What's more, it proved to be a great sun blocker and I loved walking the streets of Palermo carrying it.
When Eva saw it she fell in love with it! And she bagged me to make some pictures with it.
