Tara sent us some marvelous Youtube Clips--we just couldn't wait to share them:
Video of 1942 Oscar winners https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Flwfccjya_g&NR=1&feature=fvwp
This is a pretty neat site: Elizabeth's Embellishments, feather trees, odd little decorations, etc. http://www.elizabethsembellishments.com/Easter-Decorations/
You can see more of that at the link below: http://everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2012/11/final-installment-crotons-shakespeare.html
So we were delighted when an envelope of 1972 AND 1973 clippings on the festival were mailed to us on Sunday and couldn't wait to get them online. Click on the photos--these are all from 1973. Enjoy! See more of these clippings here http://www.everythingcroton.blogspot.com/2013/02/more-from-crotons-shakespeare-festival.html
