Spring Umbrella

I'm a copy cat.
This spring umbrella is an idea
from Midwest Living (April 2010) magazine.
I keep good magazines FOREVER!

It just so happens that I had a vintage child's umbrella.
All I did was put a handful of pillow stuffing
way down inside to make the umbrella
 appear "full" of flowers.
Then I stuck a few various flowers
 from Michaels in the umbrella "pockets".
I tied a ribbon around the middle.
Even though it's a red umbrella,
it worked for spring  by adding the yellow.
Here are a few other spring umbrellas:
Hopefully you're getting spring fever.
I know I am!
I start my greenhouse job next week,
which is always a bittersweet event.
