The Cheshire Cat's Grin

Dazlious...*

Alice runs into the Cheshire Cat twice, first when she goes to the Duchess' house, and afterwards, when the cat asks her "What became of the baby?" which Alice had rescued. The original post is here. If you haven't read the book, you will have to wait until this afternoon to learn the answer.

* Linda Freeman, in Snow Cake, describes Mr. Fantastic's brief view of the sun after a lengthy confinement as "Dazlious". Thanks, Cláudia, for the reminder.

That is so good with the cat looking through the wire hoop. Can't wait to see all the photos together.

Gorgeous colour palette here... love the pink of the page and the gentle oh-so pale gold of the rings.

I like the brooch!
That cat always used to give me the creeps though.

Dazilous....indeed. Since seeing 'Snow cake', that made up word is now pat of my vocab.
