It's a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon here in Chicago, and the perfect weather got me thinking about summer. Perfect weather, of course, being relative -- 42 degrees seeming like an absolute heatwave compared to the last few months of below-zero temporatures. Summer's my least favorite season, actually...I guess because once it gets above 80 degrees I stop being able to function. However, when I imagine myself sitting out in the garden under this
beautiful lace parasol from Chris Kabel at the Conran Shop
, cold pink lemonade in hand...
It doesn't seem so bad. Right?
ETA: My mom just told me that she has been cutting pictures of this out of various magazines for over a year now, and she pointed out the decorative final. I completely missed the fact that there's a little bird on top! You can just barely see it in this picture. How cute is that?
