Hello & welcome to my MAD TEA PARTY!!!

Hello there!
And welcome to my MAD TEA PARTY.
I'll be your host for the next few moments.
My name is EVE...very nice to meet you...
but first you must...

...Sooo....
Did you drink it?
OK, good.

Now, we can start the picture part
aka: picture party...
and then I'll do some Tim Burton Alice ramblings & more...
at the bottom.

First up.....

{FYI: I wrote more about this 'stuff' at the bottom of ALL these pics.}
But I'd like ya to know that....
these great stampers were purchased off a really cool website...
that caters to ALL of your ALICE needs.
It's called GOREY DETAILS.
I put their website link all the wayyyy at the bottom.
So you just MUST read on now...
I'm bad, I know! ;}

I just opened my own ETSY art shop last week called...
LOOKING GLASS GALLERY.
And I wanted these stampers,
so when people purchase something from my site,
I can give 'em some nice stampings!
I really LOVE 'em!
Some lovely postcards that I purchased from Gorey Details.

One of my collages I made with some ALICE images.
It is called THE BIRTHDAY GIRL...
AND...
is for sale on my ETSY page.

This is another half-Alice collage that I recently made.
It's called...
Curious Poe & Curiouser Alice.

The inside of a small wood box I painted/etc...
Also on my ETSY page.

Next up...

One of the original illustrations for Lewis Carroll's book.
I love these illustrations very much.
I use 'em often in my ART...
but I do alter 'em...
so 'technically' I'm not stealing.
I think these illustrations are wonderful!!!

A nice painting I found on ETSY (sorry can't recall her name at the moment).
All the MAIN characters are here...
Alice...Mad Hatter...White Rabbit...and Queen of Hearts.
I am most like ALICE and the White Rabbit.
WHO R U most like?...
even if it's not one of the characters above.
Just being curious as usual....;}

How about another TEA PARTY pic!??

Emily the Strange having her own MAD TEA PARTY.

The first picture of WONDERLAND...
from Tim Burton's upcoming film.
STUNNING is all I can say.

And this young lady, MIA,
will be the new face of ALICE...
by Tim Burton.
She's very pretty...

...And I HEART her dress lots!!!
I mean skirt...well, forget it,
I love everything she's wearing...
right down to her awesome lil' boots!

I like this cute lil' dollie of ALICE.
Would love to get her but very pricey!
Alice stuff can sometimes be very pricey-OUCH!

Oh and I'm definitely a bit like the Cheshire Cat.
but aren't we all?
I mean "I'm mad, you're mad, we're all mad here!"
^_^

PIPOS makes these adorable Alice figures.
This is one of the Cheshire Cat.
I just adore him!

Artist Jasmine Beckett-Griffith made this painting of Alice & Lewis Carroll.
I HEART it very much and own a print of it.
Her ALICE prints (well, all her prints) are very reasonably priced.
Check out her site HERE.

This was the first Jasmine print I purchased.
It's called CLOCKWORK ALICE...
And I love it!!!
I can't help but to want all of her ALICE prints now.

Soooooo, that's the end of the picture part or picture party...
next for some words from me to YOU...

First I would like to say I'm very excited about participating in this, as I love EVERYTHING Alice in Wonderland (hence the name of my blog & I chat about Alice-related things from time to time too). I really love this idea of "party hopping"...& I hope to be a part of more to come! I think it will be great to hop around to other blogs to see their tea parties & what they'll chat about.

Sooo...I don't know about YOU, but I am super super EXCITED about the new Alice film. As I said, I HEART almost everything Alice-related and Tim Burton happens to be my favorite director of all-time...so this film will be like a DREAM COME TRUE to me. (Have you seen any pics yet? I posted some in a fairly recent post...and they look AWESOME! I am beyond excited! Everyone looks so great & Wonderland looks beautiful!)

So I would like to chat about 2 things that you may be interested in. One you may already know about but I'll throw it out there anyways. And that is, if you're ever looking for really nice (as well as unique) Alice In Wonderland merch you should definitely check out Gorey Details. They have a HUGE selection and most of it (the Alice stuff mainly) I have NEVER seen in any store. Their ALICE section can be found HERE. I've given them business a couple times now. I have to admit they are a bit slow with shipping because they carry SO much. But good things come to those who wait, right!??!

The second {and last} thing I would like to share is (ahem, shameless self promotion but hey you guys are ALICE fans right!??)...I JUST opened my very own ETSY shop called Looking Glass Gallery. I don't have many items up right now but hm, 3 out of the 6 art pieces are ALICE-related. Alice is one of my 'specialities' but I do other types of art as well. So if you're ever curious, please take a look at my gallery...which can be found HERE.

Thank you very much for stopping by my MAD TEA PARTY. I hope you enjoyed your time here. If you leave me a comment, I will do my very best-est to 'hop' over to your party too! Have lots of fun celebrating this wonderfully MAD day!

To participate in this MAD TEA PARTY or to simply check it out, please visit HERE to see what's happening! Thank you so much A Fanciful Twist for creating such a great idea! Hope you'll be doing it again next year!~

Kat said...

I'm not too crazy about vinyl toys but let me tell you, that PIPOS Cheshire cat is absolutely amazing. I'm with you on that OUCH bit, Alice themed dolls (especially BJD, double OUCH!) are too expensive, I just end up making my own.

Rhonda Roo said...

Goodness gracious this was great! Congratulations on your new Etsy shop! did fates align or what? I love all of the paintings you posted, and your Jasmine piece is awesome. I am swooning over the new movie, I have to rmeind myself not to build it up too much...love your stamps, and i will check out your shop pronto!
Sorry I was late-apparently there are lots of peeps who dig Wonderland (including me, though I am Wonderland south on my post!)
Nice to meet you!

Yeah, I'm also excited of the upcoming movie. The screen shots are just awesome and I mean a-w-e-s-o-m-e! :-)

It is so curious that these Mad Tea Parties are still going strong! I've yet to clean mine up, so please feel free to follow me back down the rabbit hole to Haute Whimsy before life goes back to simply mundane!
