The Walrus and the Carpenter

The Walrus and the Carpenter
Were walking close at hand;
They wept like anything to see
Such quantities of sand:
"If this were only cleared away,'
They said, "it would be grand!'
Through the Looking Glass, Chapter Four

This is the introductory bout of weeping, they weep more later on while consuming the oysters.

I really have no idea why I like this so much- but I just do!

Love the oysters. I'm not sure I will be able to think of buttoning buttons the same after this.

I like the whole image, your characters and the buttons, the outstanding touch.

Just a note: most of these buttons are antique and made from mother of pearl.

I always wondered what happened to Pearl's mother.

TFe-

Dupree took a pistol and he robbed that jewelry store, then he shot Pearl's mother.
