Not to be outdone by the red Olympic mitten craze, one of my favourite retailers has embraced the red and the white in their latest window display.
Dressew ("dress-sew") is a bargain-priced haven for sewers and crafty people with a selection of fabrics from upholstery to faux fur, and a wide-range of notions from buttons and buckles to fringes and boas.
I'm neither sewer nor crafter but I do venture past the "no drinks inside" sign for the jam-packed aisles of Halloween costumes and accessories (in season of course). And I love their window displays. My bus ride takes me by them and I am always tickled by their simplicity and subtle humour.
Today's stop made me look twice. So simple in a town that's going over-the-top with Olympic display. Like the red mitts, I had to stop and snap the red and white (aka Go Canada Go!!) display with the torso-less mannequins sporting what looks like rounds of gouda cheese. Smile!
