Custom Farm ~ Brella ... A Sweet Magnolias Farm Original

Well I hope this post finds you all having a beautiful "almost fall" day .. we are on the official countdown to the first day of fall .. and we are nipping at it's heels .... I just wish the weather would cooperate here in our neck of the woods.

It's been exceedingly Hot here for the last week and half 100's + ... and I'm feeling it.... Yesterday it was well over 100 again but the reprieve was we got a little stormy weather .. the thunder clouds piled up the lighting and thunder arrived and a little bit of rain.. nothing much to add to our drought ridden land though .. .. there's only so long a person can handle that many days of constant heat before you begin to get a little irritable yesterday was that day for me..but this morning I'm feeling better.  I've tried staying indoors and pretty much have managed to do so ...but I'm definitely ready for some cool weather so we can throw open the doors and windows and let some refreshing breezes blow in .. it looks like we just may get a few cooler days starting tomorrow and I'm thrilled about that.

Yesterday I completed a custom Order for one of our Farm ~ Brella's ... it turned out really charming and I had to share some pictures .. these are always a one of a kind item I make so if I don't get photos you can just forget me remembering what they looked like or having the option to share ideas with clients wanting to purchase one ... .... 

 
 
 
 
 
The combination of floral check and burlap fabrics look so beautiful together .. and I love the "Farm Fresh Truck" Design that we added to the burlap sections which was requested by the client ..






This will make the most charming display piece ..
 

 
 
When I am asked to make one our Farm ~ Brella's ..I always have to set aside a good amount of time to work on one .. It truly is a work of the heart .. Getting everything just the right size .. and to fit the skeleton of the umbrella frame is always a little challenging.. a good amount of hand sewing goes into these so they are very time consuming  ( we make each one from a vintage umbrella frame ) .. but in the end it's always worth the extra effort ..because I love how they turn out ..





This Farmbrella we made for "The Farmer's Wife" in Temecula Ca .. in 2012 ..
It looked absolutely lovely with her dishes she was offering at that time ..
 
 
 Wishing you all a Day full of Joy !

  1. They are really beautiful. So much work goes into them, they must be a labor of love. Thanks so much for sharing this with us.
    I sure hope we get some rain and cooler weather here in Orange county. I've hardly been out of the house for a week now. i believe it was 107 here yesterday in Fullerton. UGH - my garden is in terrible shape due to hot weather and water restrictions.
    Have a great week.

  2. That umbrella is adorable. So cute.
    I hope it cools down for you and you get some rain. I can't take the heat either so I know what you mean. But luckily here we don't have it near as long. We had a cooler than normal summer. We had a couple weeks that were too warm for me. Even if you stay in just going to the groceries can wipe you out in temps as high as you are having. HUGS
