Goodies from The Whitaker's

Goodies in the Mail from The Whitaker's

I was thrilled to receive not only a wonderful book, The Visual Guide to Alice in Wonderland which I won on The Whitaker's Blog by naming her new doll, Gertrude or Gertie for short, but also a spooky stack of spell books, potion and a skull, eyeball plants and a wonderful striped black and purple witchy hat! All of these items, except for the full sized book, went straight in to the witch's cottage! Joanna seized the book as she and I went to see Alice in 3-D during her spring break and we both loved it.

I really want to crate the Mad Hatter's wonderful hat and will be searching for just the right silk to do it soon when I've fulfilled other obligations including some custom orders, my blog giveaway items and a swap. This is a pix of the Mad Hatter inside this wonderful book. Thank you to The Whitakers for such a wonderful giveaway! Joanna and I both appreciate it!
Speaking of Alice in Wonderland, I also recently sought and received gracious permission from Anna Hardaman to post a pix of one of her beautiful dolls, her rendering of the White Queen. Anna is an extremely talented miniature doll artisan and I so admire her beautiful work. As a mostly lurking member of the MSAT doll list on Yahoo Groups, I get to drool over their magnificent creations. You can see more of Anna's amazing dolls here. As you can see, The White Queen is quite ethereal and beautiful.
