I am embarrassed to say that I have never read the book, or at least I don’t remember reading it. I did read a lot growing up, so maybe I read it. But I love the movies, the old and the new. I love the vintage illustrations from the different, old versions of the book. The clothes in the most recent movie version?! Be still my heart!! Can anyone say “most beautiful blue dress ever?” As you might remember, I have made several Alice brooches in the past. I think they turned out great, and they did sell well. One lady even bought one for her daughter’s wedding because the wedding was Alice in Wonderland themed! Can you just imagine? I sometimes forget the many versions of the Alice brooch. I have to remind myself. Does anyone remember my blue vintage suitcase full of Alice ornaments that decorated a tall pink Alice in Wonderland Christmas tree? And then there was my own version of the Alice blue dress. It is time for me to start on paper Christmas tags for the shop. Of course, some of them should be Alice tags. I have to make a batch of brooches. Of course, some of them should be Alice brooches. I think I need to make some pieces of clothing in honor of Alice! So here is to more Alice!
In 2012, I had the idea to make a bunch of Alice in Wonderland ornaments. The idea started from an old Alice book that was falling apart but that I did not want to toss out. I purchased a pink vintage tree for about 20 dollars. Oh my goodness! The fun I had!
This turned into one of my favorite projects ever! I used vintage playing cards. I took luggage tags and decorated them with torn pages. I used lots of white and pink.
Enjoy this day!
