Adventures in Wonderland

I great bit THANK YOU to Cannw90!

I received this beautimuslovely package in the Alice in Wonderland swap

 The first glimpse into the box.

I absolutely love everything about this! It’s a wee pocket watch for Mr. W. Rabbit himself! The little rabbit and flower top pops open to reveal a real working watch. It’s darling and so very perfect. That, right there, was all I needed in the box. I’m done.

However, there is so very much more in the box. Cannw90, must have folded everything up like a telescope so it would fit.

Next was a project bag with the knitting sheep from my favorite chapter in Through the Looking Glass and a traveling tea mug with strainer so I can brew my loose leaf teas. I’m brewing a Doctor Who tea in it in the photo. Amazing the universe didn’t explode with all the awesome in one place. 

So. Many. Teas. and coffee, can’t forget the coffee. I’m set to host a tea party every day from my Birthday to my next with all the Unbirthdays between. So far I’ve tried the Gypsy Rose and it’s marvelous.

 Adorable little jars of jam for the tea party and dark chocolate too.

 This is the softest, squishiest cowl. It feels like velvet and the colors are beautiful and it’s wonderful!

 The Caterpillar scarf! see how the bobbles are his little caterpillar FEET! That is too cute and the scarf is awesome.

Next up are some wonderful washcloths in the Cheshire cat colors tied in a ribbon in my favorite color along with a wee tin of my favorite hand balm. It’s all too perfect. I especially appreciate the decorative stitch, it makes the cloths so lush and thick.

 My very FAVORITE yarn! Malabrigo Twist. Thank you, Cannw90, I hope it wasn’t too much trouble to find it. And the color is Sealing Wax which is perfect beyond words.

"The time has come," the Walrus said,
"To talk of many things:
Of shoes--and ships--and sealing-wax--
Of cabbages--and kings--
And why the sea is boiling hot--
And whether pigs have wings."


And finally “Why is a raven like a writing desk?”
My cat it in the process of killing the raven cat toy for asking a question with no answer.

Bravo, Cannw90, for the amazing package. You gathered all of my favorite things into one wonderful swap box. Thank you, I love it!
