Romeo and Juliet

I went to see this movie when I was young. Franco Zeffirelli's version starring Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting is the only one I think I've ever seen. I am still hoping I might come across a video in a thrift store one of these days. I do have the paperback!
I really liked the movie, but I recall that my friend Marcia LOVED it. She is in my thoughts today because her father passed away earlier this week.
I found this Yardley advertisement in one of my old Seventeen magazines:
This is an advertisement for Sears bedspreads, and I have to say I think this young woman's four-poster bed looks very "Juliet-ish" to me!

I think she has a balcony, too.

I love you, Marcia.

I was Marcia's little sister's babystitter so got to know her Dad a bit. He was a very nice man. I hope her mom is doing okay. Great post Heidi. Love T
