A Little Alice On The Side

Last week, I went with my friend Sue to a couple of antique marts in the area and I came across this book.

For $4.00 I had to pick it up!  Not only was Alice in Wonderland the theme for my daughter’s baby shower tea party, but last year we did a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party here {joining in with Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist}.   This book has great graphics throughout; mostly black and white, but also some color images.

I love the cover and the pages.  It is in excellent condition and I shall look forward to reading this to my granddaughter in a few years.  For now, I think I’ll just take a look through it.  It’s been years since I read about Alice’s adventures!

I also got the chalk paint for my master bedroom dresser and, hopefully, I am doing that as you are reading this!

Kathy, what a sweet find and I'm sure your granddaughter will love it as much as you do! What color did you decide on for your master bedroom dresser? I've been painting the china cabinet and let me tell you it's cold out in the garage painting that thing. It's taking a lot longer to dry than normally. Enjoy your day painting and remember don't work too hard. Gail

A girlfriend and I are leaving next Thursday for Nashville to go the The Vintage Market show at the Expo Center...I am really excited! We are spending the night and I told my husband we may stay ANOTHER night! lol Nashville has some great shopping! Of course high up on my bucket list is making it to Warrenton and Roundtop Texas. I SO want to go there!

This is great, Kathy. It's really a beautiful book! When the hubs and I go thrifting, we usually find the bookstores and now would be a great time for me to start stocking up on some good reads for future grandkidlets!

Hi Kathy,
My daughter is looking for the original Little Mermaid tale. It's like $65.00 online. Wish I could find it in a thrift store! Nice find. XO Cindy
