Alice Silhouette cards

Along with the doll, these mismatched cups and saucers are making their way to Arjan. Mina has a cunning plan to make flower arrangements - small flower arrangements- in them. I also made some cards to go with the arrangements.
I'm giving away this set of four cards (inclusive of envelopes) , just indicate in the comments if you would like them and I will pick a winner at random and announce next Monday - at which point I may do another giveaway, if I make something cool in the interim. I'll be resuming the photo essay on Alice in Wonderland in my second post today.

For those with small daughters, there's a giveaway on Cupcakes at Home.

OOOh! A give-away!
Please put my name in the Mad Hatter's hat (even though I have yet to use my Valentine playing card...)!

A stack of cups and saucers. Somehow it makes me think of Alice through the looking glass.

I love the idea of the teacup flower arrangements and your cards accompanying them - looking at the website of Arjan it is clear that Mina is gifted! What a treat it would be to see Arjan bedecked in flowers with your Alice creations, it will be a wonderland! Please enter me in your drawing.

Healing Woman said...

Looks like a mad tea party to me! Your doll, the cups with flowers (love the shop Arjan) and the terrific note cards, maybe used for place settings..please include me in the random draw.

Thanks!

Clowncar said...

yes, please! those are gorgeous. and I know two little girls who would just adore them.

btw, do you know of Antonin Artaud? my senior project in college was a "theater of cruelty" version of Alice in Wonderland. my fascination with Alice (and Lewis Carroll) started then. and continued on for 30 years now.

Kay said...

you are doing a great job at building up my anticipation! those teacups adorable! (and yes, of course, your cards) :)

California Girl said...

What a gorgeous blog your friend has on arjan. Her arrangements are equally beautiful. I collect tea cups, probably in the genes as Mother & Grandmother did as well.

I'd love to be put in the hat for a chance to win set of cards. Thank you.

Mom would love the cups but she's got enough already, says I! And you're always making something cool ;)

Put my fat arse in the hat sparko. Love the cards. Hope you don't have a smashing time with those cups!

The Josie Baggley Company said...

quite curious ..in Ireland we put tea into the cups ..the world is indeed strange. Mismatching though is quite a common passtime.

Your cards are delightful.

Bee said...

Is it too late to participate?

Tea cups are always so appealing. I had some tiny narcissus in a teacup on my kitchen window ledge . . but they've gone off now.

ArtSparker said...

Bee- It's actually the cards I was giving away...
