alice in bonserland

Alice was drowsily listening to her sister read, when she saw a White Rabbit hurry by. He had a big smile and carried a pocket watch in the shape of a tea pot.
She thought this was very curious, so she followed him down a rabbit hole...
and she fell down, down down! Alice landed with a thump, only to see the White Rabbit disappearing through a door that was much too small for her. a bottle sat on the table. the label on it read:
Alice took a drink and shrank to a very small size. she could fit through the door now.... but she could no longer reach the key!
'I'll never find the White Rabbit now'! and she began to cry. she cried so much her tears flooded the room and she floated through the keyhole. finally she found the white rabbit
he asked Alice to fetch his gloves from his house. Alice entered the house and found a cupcake labelled: so she did. suddenly she grew as large as the house, eating a chocolate cookie from his garden shrank her down so small, she was soon lost in the grass!

in the garden Alice happened upon a haughty caterpillar.

he told her to eat some of his mushroom to return to her normal size.

Alice took a bite and grew taller than the trees! when she took another bite, she returned to her normal size. Bonserland sure was strange and it became stranger still when she met the Cheshire Cat.

'I'd ask the Mad Hatter if i wanted to find the White Rabbit'.

Alice found the Mad Hatter

he had invited the Cheshire Cat and the and the White Rabbit and welcomed Alice to the table. they had a wonderful time

they ate

colourful treats

drank cup after cup

ate scrumptious finger sandwiches

and even had time for a game of cards

Alice had her fill of fine food and laughter and as she had found the White Rabbit she decided it was time to go home. she wandered around until she happened upon the queens guards who had painted the white roses red.

Alice found this all too much and ran and ran until she could run no more. finally exhausted she climbed a tree and fell asleep. when she woke she realised it was all a dream, a curious dream in Bonserland.

thanks to Vanessa from a fanciful twist for hosting such a fun party. as my sister said, we are building wonderful, whimsical childhood memories and for that i thank you!

smooches to you all, now i cant wait to come visit you! xx rosey AKA the queen of tarts :0)

Oh those girls are so adorable. Ok wait, I was a little confused. 4 girls? I thought the first two girls with curly blond hair is just the same. :-) Oh well.

They sure must have a blast with all those treats laid on the table. I mean, yum! yum! And that caterpillar is adorable :-)

I'm so sorry to be so late.....so many tea parties to attend. Along the way I fell down the rabbit hole and somehow got lost at the bend. But if I may, I would love a cup of tea. All that running around has left me so very thirsty.
Gee those cakes and the gingerbread men look tasty. You don't suppose I might have one of those as well? Thank you.....

My, look at all the partiers and all dressed in their best attire. How lovely....

Well, it has been splendid but I must be going. I have many more tea parties to go to still.

May the day ahead be a beautiful one for you.

Thanks for sharing your girls whimsical journey into Alice in Bonserland. What fun! I even feel like my tummy is full from cupcakes. Hmmm... That's probably because I am full from eating cupcakes ;)
