The third chapter at The Altered Alice is Alice Colors of Blue and Yellow, which suited me beautifully as I'm feeling the need to incorporate some bright colors into life.
After all, as much as I adore winter and throughout July, August and September my greatest desire is a snow day, this year's succession of grungy-skied Spring days in Northern Nevada has been cheerless. Depressing. Freaking dreadful.
As I said though, no more of that lusterless talk: Let's dive deep into the well of sunshine yellow and clear sky blue!
My Altered Alice Blue and Yellow piece also wandered through the garden at Bugaboo Stamps and Alice's tea party at Octopode on Etsy.
Don't you agree that the Bugaboo flower cups, which are originally designed as coffee cups, make a brilliant Alice-esque tea party background? And isn't the Octopode March Hare a perfect and wonderful representation of that moment before your first cup of caffeine in the morning?
The tinsel-embossed phrase hanging above, You Warm My Heart, just had to be added on it's own little wire spring dangling above the March Hare because he really does warm the heart with his one crazy eye, droopy ears and scruffy clothing!
Later today I'm going to make a holiday card on which I'll let the Octopode March Hare dress up as the Easter Bunny after a long morning delivering colored eggs. I'm sure he'll be thrilled.
But not nearly as ecstatic as he is to be joining the fun at The Altered Alice! You can also sign up for this Artistic Outpost-sponsored party, just so long as you link up before 8 p.m. April 22!
