April Faves - 2018

Mrs. A. Monthly Faves

April Showers Bring May Flowers
April showers have certainly been the case for Oklahoma this year, and we have welcomed the rain for sure!!  So in light of all the rain, I thought it might be fun to talk about "Umbrellas" for my April Faves.  Let's check out my top three choices.
A recipe from Martha Stewart's Umbrella Sugar Cookies is first on my list.  They look so good!!

And my second choice is such a great use for a vintage umbrella by Junk Chic Cottage.  Have you ever seen this done?  Didn't it make a great backdrop for this spring bouquet?

I found many ways to re-purpose vintage umbrellas.  This one was interesting by Randi Dukes of Dukes & Duchesses.  Use an umbrella with a wooden pole and wooden ribs to create a garden trellis for climbing plants.

Hope you enjoyed my choices for this month because that's it for my April Faves.  Well...almost...I just had to throw in one more picture just for the fun of it.

    I love the umbrella spring bouquet 💐 and the plant structure for climbing vines and flowers like Clemitis and Morning Glory and Orange 🍊 Trumpet Vines. I like the Vintage picture at the end also, it reminds me of my Grandmother who took care of me when I was growing up in the beautiful Bluegrass country of Kentucky.

    I like the Vintage Umbrella Spring Bouquet best, too. I’ll be keeping my eye out for a suitable vintage umbrella while I’m out hunting for treasures to list in my store.
