Alice in Wonderland for Easter

very year I read “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll. I don’t know what in this book make me so happy, but I return back and read it again and again, many years of my life.

When I was just a kid, I started with fairly good translation by Marshak (famous Russian poet), then I try dozens other translations, obviously not all of them was equally interesting to me. Finally, few years ago, I was able to enjoy it in original. I absolutely in love with illustrations made by Sir John Tenniel. What a brilliant cartoonist!

You can find book at . Illustrations from “Alice in Wonderland” become part of my Easter decorations. I already print them out and will display them together with bunnies and birds.

Also, I almost finished another heart, and will frame late. I want to make few of them and display in our TV-room. Lately I check lot of French blogs and found thousands new ideas - this is one of them. Isn’t it beautiful combination of light-gray and red? So simple...

Hi Lenka, I'm glad my idea worked for you.
I also love Alice and have read it a few timkes. I think I have 2 or 3 books. I think they all have Tennants drawings in them. I agree he is a very talented illustrator.
I love your French heart. I have collected a few hearts over the last few months. - Sandra.

Beautiful heart Lenka - but you must get more rest!!! I'm like that sometimes - get so involved in something creastive and forget to go to bed - my dh says this is definitely not healthy!
