How many Shakespeare quotes were there........... that is the question!

Evening everyone, I hope you've had a great day.  Huge congrats to my lovely friend Karen for completing the London Marathon in a great time. 
If you called by yesterday you'll know we had a bit of a Shakespeare theme running through the post with a little challenge to count the number of Shakespeare plays mentioned.  Thank you to everyone who played along, counted up and left a comment.   It's time to reveal all......................
Bit of a sneaky question really there were eight references in all and two plays were mentioned twice so the answer to the question 'How many Shakespeare plays are mentioned.....' was six.  Here they are:
  • The Merry Wives of Mullion (Windsor) - Play Title 
  • Margaret, Margaret, where for art thou Margaret  -   Juliet in Romeo and Juliet
  • Much a do about Nothing -  Play Title 
  • Double Double toil and trouble - the Witches in Macbeth 
  • What's in a name that which we call a Rose by any other would smell so sweet - Juliet from Romeo and Juliet
  • We are merry as the day is long - Beatrice in Much a Do about Nothing
  • 'Can one desire too much of a good thing' - Rosalind in As You Like it 
  • 'Tis a very excellent piece of work, madam lady' -  Sly in Taming of the Shrew 
Actually nobody guessed six but because I'm so impressed that you all participated that there is a little something for all who left a comment.  If your blog name is below please e mail me at to claim your little something.

Boxes altered by Claireeeee and Photos were taken by Annie :-) The rainbow picture on the box was taken after a severe hailstorm and the end of the rainbow was right on St Anthony's Lighthouse, St Anthony's Head across the water from Falmouth.  Love it.
