So a few years ago, I got online and found an absolutely adorable pair of yellow rainboots with honeybees all over them. Being an amateur beekeeper, I obviously couldn't live another minute without owning them.

I've spent the past three years or so trying to find a suitable umbrella to match, to no avail.

Tromping around in my bee boots during a Wal-Mart run one dark and stormy night last week, I spotted a plain clear Totes bubble umbrella and decided to do what any sensible Craftster girl would do:





Of course it hasn't rained a drop since then, but I'll be ready next time it does. Smiley

Thanks!

pincushion_queen: I was really excited about finding those shoes. This is what they look like: http://www.amazon.com/Chooka-Womens-Honey-Rain-Boot/dp/B0018D8B8G

DawnsTrees: It's paintmarker. I found out that the pearlescent kind beads up and makes a mess on vinyl, but the regular colors work very well.
