When opportunity occurs I like to take a walk along Bloor St. in downtown Toronto. Heading west from Yonge St. I stroll past all the shops checking out their window displays. Jewelery, shoes, clothing and decor shops all create some sort of design in their windows for passerby’s to view. The window display I was really taken with was Holt Renfrew’s. WOW! A riot of colour like you couldn’t imagine. It may be really cold outside (think snow flurries in April) but their windows were hot! The theme of their window display was “This spring you can’t live without…” and done in all the fabulous colours of spring. Various media personalities were quoted as to the items they could not live without and the items were displayed in some vibrant and lively fashion. Someone couldn’t live without lemons, lots of lemons. Someone couldn’t live without their dog. Someone else it was a great white shirt. Someone a LBD (little black dress). And of course someone couldn’t live without chocolate. This got me thinking; what could I not live without? Hmmm? I’m thinking yellow tulips, French macaroons, birdsong? So…let me know what it is that “this spring you can’t live without”? PS. A big shout out to all the window designers out there who put smiles on our faces and thoughts in our heads!
