A beautiful book with Lewis Carroll’s poems that were turned into songs by Lucy Broadwood and were illustrated by Charles James Folkard. (via Learning to Share, an interesting blog).
Mabel Lucie Attwell- The Cheshire Cat
Searching for all things Alice in Etsy, I found MANY objects, some vintage, some handmade, some expected but also, some definitely unexpected and original. Some of the finds I liked most:
“The rabbit returns” . You can buy the artwork in Etsy, by Christina Siravo
Earrings featuring the Red Queen, by PersephonePlus
Alice purse by Field of Roses
A fantastic Mad hatter t-shirt, by Bany and Tree Clothing
A set of four door knobs, by Monkey Shines
A set of five different Alice themed prints by Poppy Tree
Wooden box by the The Aviary
Rabbit earrings by Alessandra Fusi
Alice and Flamingo in Wonderland baby organic baby onesie by Tiffini Elektra X
Alice themed ??leskine by Deborah Campion
The Mad Hatter’s top hat charm pendant necklace by LunarraStar Jewellery
Stamps by RetroNana
Set of four notebooks by RetroNana
Retro notepad by JapanKawaiiYa
Steel pendant with silver chain by Untamed Menagerie ["’Curiouser and curiouser!’ Cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English). ’Now I’m opening out like the largest telescope that ever was! Good-bye, feet!’ (for when she looked down at her feet they seemed to be almost out of sight, they were getting so far off)." (Chapter 2)]
Finally, I came upon these fantastic teacup stools inspired by Alice
and this surreal chair that looks like a sofa climbing up the wall, made by Lila Jang (via Yatzer).
Yes, I spent hours looking for all these things. But now, that I look at them collected here, I too want to fall in the rabbit hole.

Johnny Depp is the Mad Hatter. Don’t you love the make-up? (via stylefrizz)
The film has been scheduled for 5 March 2010 and apart from Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, Anne Hathaway plays the White Queen, Helena Bonham Carter is the Red Queen, and Stephen Fry is the Chesire Cat -I would love to see that photo and I hope it’s not just animation. I think that Lewis Carroll would be very pleased that Tim Burton is making the film. Is there anybody else who would be able to portray this surreal environment better? Except Baz Luhrmann of course, but we’d have a musical then.

This is the totally green house that Simon Dale made for his family a few years ago in the Welsh countryside, using only natural materials. His aim was not just a house that was environment-friendly, but a house that would be one with its surroundings. Dale has developed a philosophy around this house and his other similar projects. He is a hobbit of our days.
This is what houses would look like, the gardens would always be in bloom, your skirt would match the cups, there would be no ants invading picnics. Pretty moments from Narratives . I will be in the garden.
I found these beautiful pictures of Paris which I want to dedicate to my friend Blondie, who now lives there permanently. They are by Jordi Canosa.

The Form us with love designers created this collection for the summer table. Isn’t everything cheery -especially the carafe designed as a lighthouse? The collection was designed for Sagaform, a Scandinavian company with beautiful products for the home designed in the Nordic tradition of simplicity.
The enamored owl, 2008
Alberto Cerriteño is a designer and illustrator who loves alternative cartoons and pop surrealism. I think his style is unique and I’d love to fill my house with his pictures. Thankfully, for me, I can buy prints of his work on Etsy.
The Waiting Girl, 2006
You may have seen German photographer’s Loretta Lux’s work, if not, prepare to be amazed by going here. Never before had I been so mesmerized by looking at photos of children: they really look as if they know much more than we realize.
The drummer, 2004
At the Window, 2004
Lux is a photographer but she has studied painting. She says she prefers working on her computer and thinks of painting as a messy job. You can read about her here , here (she talks about her favourite photo, The Waiting Girl) and here . She is no less mysterious than her photos.
From here, a 1952 painting
