in wonderland...

i have just finished reading Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carroll. (The Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson)
i thought i should read this charming book again, as when young, it went completely over my head with its wonderful meanings and very weird goings on...

what a book..
if you haven't picked it up since you were wee
i do really recommend you read it


full of craziness, its so well written
and the illustrations speak for themselves
masterpieces by John Tenniel

i read the Oxford World's Classics  version
 which gives you explanatory notes
which i found interesting and very helpful at times

a real joy to read

i found a website dedicated to all things Alice

full of information about the book
the drawings and the young girl herself...

meanwhile, i have been adding to my collection of vintage fabric

finding some real beauties

gorgeous original designs
just waiting to be made into something fabulous...
