“ Pretty Shade”

Spring is here and soon we will all be spending more time outdoors. I know I have been planting some pink and white impatiens in my back yard. I love flowers because they just make me smile!! I started thinking of different ways to beautify our yards. I personally love natural canvas Market Umbrellas. I know that there is nothing new or terribly exciting about a Market Umbrella. I think they make a yard look cozy and inviting. I thought I would look around and find some interesting and different Market Umbrellas to share with you.

Aren’t these amazing!! They are made of oil treated cotton and hand painted. I think anyone would feel very special sitting under one of these lovelies! You can purchase one of these here. They measure 76” in diameter. You would not use this as your main source of shade but what a great functional conversation piece. Here are a few more patterns and colors……..
I found a few more really interesting and very pretty possibilities for your yard…….
Look at the detail on this bright pink outdoor parasol. This would look amazing in a yard with a pool and a chaise covered in wonderful Moroccan patterned pillows.
I love the black and white on this umbrella. It is such a sharp look and the detailing is gorgeous.You can find these two umbrellas here
I will take ruffles with my umbrella, please!
Purple with fringe, Yummy.
Pink and white striped delight!
How about a basket weave for your umbrella?
Remember the 1960’s daisy pattern. This totally reminds me of that look.The last five umbrellas can be found here
Everyone needs a little luxury for their yard. You would surely have it with this white and gold beauty. Look at the detail on the pole. Amazing. You can find this umbrella here
I hope some of these lovely umbrellas and outdoor parasols have inspired you.
Enjoy the Process” Of: Adding lovely shade to your garden.
