Black Cloche...Black Cat

 Okay so perhaps he is Grey, but I won't tell if you don't!? 

Yes!...That is a Cat on my umbrella! 

A special leaving present from all those beautiful friends at Beyond Retro (past and present). 
So now my dream of owning a 'world famous James Smith & Sons' brolly is a reality and I really can not express how grateful I am for such a thoughtful and touching gift! 

Thank you all for giving me so many amazing experiences, happy memories and fabulous friends. My time with you was a highlight of my London living and now every time it rains I will think of you.

  1. Aww sweetpea you look lovely and what an absolute golden umbrella, wow! \^.^/ It's so beautiful! I hope you are having a lovely February kitten! So cold! I can not wait for the spring! Love to you and yours xxx

  2. I KNEW it was a James Smith brolly as soon as I saw it. I have browsed there but never bought. What a wonderful gift to have - he's gorgeous. There is nothing quite like a beautiful, proper umbrella. I don't have anything as fancy as a James Smith one but I do take pride in always using a distinct, distinguished full-length umbrella. None of these nasty fold-away things. And a good umbrella makes a walk in the rain the joy that it should be, all the more so if it has associations with loved ones xx

    1. Exactly! Aww I'm so glad someone else recognised a James Smith. Such a special shop. xx

  3. That is the best umbrella handle I have ever seen! I love your hat+cape combination as well. It looks very dramatic and intriguing :)
