Friday Finds: September 17

I have a spot in my front entryway that would be perfect for a collection of vintage umbrellas. This week while I was browsing Etsy I came across these lovely umbrella items. I love a good rainy day every so often, don't you? (I have to admit, we live in a primarily sunny place, and by 'every so often' I really mean 'maybe once a month'. I don't know how you people do it in the Pacific Northwest. I suppose you all have cute umbrellas, don't you?

I love this sweet pin...
Under my Umbrella Pin from So Passe

The saturated blue color of this one is stunning...
Singing in the Rain Vintage Umbrella from Robin's Vintage

Since I'd be displaying my umbrellas with the handles showing, I was drawn to the red...
Vintage 1950's Umbrella from Unforgettable You

Aren't old photographs so endearing? This was what started my little collection for today...

This just made me laugh, and it's a toothpick holder! She is too cute, and would be a fun little lady to have sitting next to the stove...

I'm off for another weekend away...this time at a woman's retreat for church. It's the first one I've ever been to, and I'm having some mixed feelings about it. I know the time away will be refreshing. I'm sad to leave Brett and Maren behind, although I know they'll have a brilliant time together. Can you believe Maren is 2 and I've never spent a night away from her? I'll miss her sweet kisses tonight. Believe it or not, I'm an extremely introverted person and I don't do large group things very well. Nevertheless, I'm excited to step out of my comfort zone and I look forward to what the Lord has in store for me this weekend.

You just might find an invigoratingly poetic post of reflection and introspection waiting here for you on Monday morning. Please do your best to contain your anticipation though...no promises!

By the way...have you noticed that {oh write} is nearing 100 followers!? I've got a little something fun planned to celebrate...stick around!
