Now that the unrelenting snow is starting to turn to freezing rain, my thoughts are turning toward umbrellas. Thank goodness for the glamour shot because I have learned a lot about umbrellas’ true purpose lately. I now know that they are not used for protecting us from rain as I had been led to believe all of my life. I should primarily use if for a walking stick but if I need to open it, I should hold it upside down or sideways like a sail. I haven’t figure out the reasoning for that but I’m sure one the Glam Pack can clarify it for the rest of us.
To protect ourselves from the rain, we are to wear a wide brimmed hat and a coat over our shoulders.
I am so glad I embarked on the Glamorous Midcentury Lifestyle Project. There is so much for me to learn in my endeavor to be glamorous! Who knew I am not supposed to hold an umbrella over my head!
