90 Rainy Day Doodads

From Sunny-Sky Parasols to Cloud-Couch Lounging

— September 10, 2010 — Art & Design
Showers can turn an otherwise good day into a miserable one, so it's no surprise that different companies manufacturing various products have come up with rainy day doodads for cheering the weary.

It can be as simple as bringing bright color or quirky capabilities to your usual downpour duds. Regular household objects can even become uplifting rainy day doodads when they incorporate misty motifs into delightfully designed decor.
