It would appear that we've officially entered the icky season here in San Francisco - the rain has been coming down on and off for the past few days and doesn't seem to want to stop any time soon. We'll have to stick to our umbrella outside for now, but we can still try and incorporate a beautiful parasol inside.
Follow Alice's lead and chop off the handle to shade an overhead light. Or if you have a collection like the one pictured at top, you can again take off all the handles then hang them on the wall in a decorative group, like these plates. Any other suggestions?
