Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Selfridge and Shakespeare Act 2

On Oxford Street again this week and couldn't resist having a look at Selfridge's new windows. Entitled Shakespeare Refashioned to mark 400 years since the Bard's death, quotes from different plays provided the inspiration for the designers. All the outfits were specially designed for the window displays and are on sale in the shop.

  1. That is quite an effort, by a number of people I should think.

  3. Oh this was fun! I didn't realize before that I could view your pictures in slide show format; when I clicked on the first one to better read the quote I saw how to do it; it worked really well for window viewing! I think my favorite interpretation is the Othello 'sorrow's heavenly' one ... but if I looked again tomorow it might be different!

  9. Oh my, what a contrast of costumes and clothing! The first one seems to be missing material so they put see through stuff on it.
