                    I searched the web and found very little
                     on the subject of hanging umbrellas
             from the ceiling.  They're popular for decorating
                      wedding halls & even a Vegas Hotel

                I think it's dreamy & wanted to share with you
                              my small scale project. 
                  All it took was a $10 vintage umbrella
               & a ceiling hook (for hanging plants, etc). 

This is my craft room. 
 Disastrous Messy, but still my "happy place". 
 The bird is a vinyl sticker
 created on my Cricut
 using Indie Art &
Accent Essential cartridges. 
 I love the fact that they're temporary,
since my son might end up
 in this basement bedroom someday. 
A few bird sparkles add
 an inspiring magical touch,
don't you think?

                              This black umbrella is aged,
                               but a good basic color.   
                    It's nicely domed & inside is wooden,
                            which adds to the charm. 

Love umbrellas?
Here are a few more fabulous ideas!

Don't forget they make phenominal photography props!

Maybe if I do an umbrella dance,
spring will come early to Minnesota!
