The Ides of March

15 Mar

It’s the 15th of March which always makes me think of Julius Caesar which I had to read (but enjoyed) back in school and I remember when the emperor is warned to “beware the ides of March”. So, this is a little bit of a stretch but I then started thinking about what’s related to Shakespeare in terms of design and the first thing that sprang to mind was Juliet balconies – which I love, by the way.  I love the idea of throwing open the French doors to the balcony and announcing, “Egoiste” — okay, that’s a reference that’s showing my age for those of you who don’t get it.

Anyway, I guess it’s pretty obvious why people consider Juliet balconies so romantic. I would have loved one at the cottage but I’m not allowed to overlook the neighbors’ properties.  Oh well…another feature for the vacation home.

    can’t wait to visit your cottage AND your vacation home. And, oh, yes, I got it! :)

      That’s why it’s important to have friends in one’s age range or older! :-)
