Inspired!

When I saw the Cheshire cat I had to  have one.

When I saw her decorated letter, I had to do one...


and now I have ordered the book she recommended.

The 'K' was for a friend's 40th, I am sure you can work out his passions. The playing cards, book and bridge score card were from a dolls house set. I made the cribbage board and whittled the wicket from kebab sticks. The ball was from a Christmas cracker miniature set of skittles, painted. (Now I know why these things have been in a drawer for years)  As the K is soft I was able to make a dent in it to stick the ball on firmly. I cut out the CD's from some sticky back plastic with a circular punch, and the images were all printed from Google finds. I must say it went down a treat. Thanks for the inspiration Lesley.

And Lesley, remember imitation is the highest form of flattery.
(I have got a mind of my own - honest)

I love Lewis Caroll's books about Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass. We went to see the movie in 3D with great expectations. Maybe that was the mistake--expecting to see 3D like Avatar or an adventure as good as Mr. Caroll's. Came out of the theater with a headache and disappointed by the story line. Although the cast was excellent.

Your little Cheshire cat is fun.
