You May Have the Floor

But I think I’ll take this attractive Daisa rug I found at Rugsale.com. It’s made of imported New Zealand wool and hand-tufted in a cheerful design of green, red, yellow, and purple. What could be better for warming both toes and hearts in the cold winter months?

Jacket It Up

Designer clothes may be beautiful, but they cost so much that most of us can’t afford them. Luckily, the good people at Net-A-Porter.com are doing something about that.

Natasha Lace-Trimmed Jacket
Take, for instance, this pretty lace-trimmed jacket by Natasha. Once upon a time it retailed for $495.00, but at Net-A-Porter it’s now available for just $198.00. That brings it down to a price a great many more of us can justify.

Stand and Deliver Me This Coat

One look at this fabulous equestrian-style coat from Newport-News, and all I could think of was wearing it to hijack eighteenth-century coaches in a terribly stylish way. While I do not recommend taking up a life of crime, I do think this cotton velvet coat will lend a swagger to your steps and a bit of romance to life in general.

Zip It Up and Keep Warm

This handsome half-zip pullover from Columbia Sportswear Co. should certainly do the trick. Made of 100% polyester Glacial feather weight microfleece, it comes in six different colors, one of which is bound to make him smile.

To Buy Or Not To Buy, That Is the Question

To which my answer is definitely ‘buy!’ If there’s someone you know who loves Shakespeare or if you love the Bard yourself, Shakespeare: the Life, the Works, the Treasures is a treasure trove of fascinating background material on his world and his writings. Discussions of Shakespeare’s likely inspirations and how his plays have been interpreted down the ages offer endless insights to the theater lover as well as the historian.

Shakespeare bookIn addition to all that, this book includes 30 pieces of facsimile memorabilia, including:

Shakespeare’s baptism record, marriage bond, and will; King James I’s patent allowing Shakespeare and his actors the right to perform their plays throughout the country; tickets from the opening of the Swan Theatre, and a great deal more.

The list price is $50.00, which isn’t at all a bad deal. But why pay that much when amazon.com has it available for $31.50? That’s a deal the Merchant of Venice would recommend!

A Timely Deal

Keeping track of time will be a breeze with this lovely Movado ladies’ watch from Watchzone.com. An elegant classic, it features a black leather band, white face with Roman numerals, and fun blue hands. What’s more, it has a quartz movement and is water resistant to 100 feet. Best of all, it’s $150.00. That’s $100.00 of the usual price of $250.00.
