I can spell…honestly! This is the title of the play in my version of it (quite an old edition from 1905). I love old books and I’ve got three teeny editions of Shakespeare’s plays (Love’s Labour’s Lost, MacBeth and the Taming of the Shrew).

♥Shakespeare♥ is one of my all time favourite writers. I was one of those kids who went to the library to get out Shakespeare for ‘light reading’ at bedtime, LOL I love the way his words flow and can totally lose myself in them. :-)

The pictures were taking outside in my garden and edited with my own textures. No stock materials used.

More images with books to come…

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    Great photo! There was also a movie with Kenneth Branagh – a 2000 film relocated the setting to the 1930s and attempted to make the play more accessible by turning it into a musical. However, the film was a box office and critical failure. But I like Kenneth Branagh.

  • Thanks so much Eileen, greatly appreciated. :-) I like Kenneth Branagh too! xo
