Time for Tea!

When the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat pocket and looked at it and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet. Burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit hole. In another moment, down went Alice after it, never once considering how she would get out again...
She had not gone much farther before she came in sight of the house of the March Hare. There was a table set out front of the house, and the March Hare and the Mad Hatter were having tea at it.
The table was a large one, but all present were crowded together at one corner of it.
"Have some wine," the March Hare said encouragingly.
Alice looked all around the table, but there was nothing on it but tea.
The Hatter went on in a mournful tone, "It's always six o' clock." A bright idea came into Alice's head. "Is that the reason so many tea things are put out here?" she asked.
"Yes, that's it," said the Hatter with a sigh. "It's always teatime, and we've no time to wash the things."
"Then you keep moving round, I suppose, " said Alice.
"Exactly so," said the Hatter, "as things get used up."
"But what happens when you come back to the beginning again?" Alice ventured to ask.
"Suppose we change the subject," the March Hare interrupted, yawning.
Follow Alice on the rest of her adventures by picking up a road map from our FABULOUS hostess Vanessa. You'll love all the twists and turns along the way. Thank you so much for stopping by! Happy Day!

Water Baby

My baby girl just finished two weeks worth of swimming lessons. She can kick her feet, blow bubbles, and move the water out of the way with her arms...only not all at the same time. But practice makes perfect, right? Popsicle incentives never hurt either.

Nancy Drew has been feeling a little intimidated ever since I brought this perky pink Barbie book home. Miss Drew thought that she was the only gumshoe in town, but Barbie Roberts had news for her. If Barbie lingers in Rivers Heights much longer though, Nancy has threatened to steal her boyfriend. We may have a super sleuth cat fight on our hands ladies and gentlemen. If so, my money is definitely on Barbie. Never underestimate the power of pink. Which reminds me, check out the list of Pink Saturday participants over at the blog of our fabulous hostess Beverly.You'll be glad you did!
Now before you leave, you have to peek inside the book at some of the great illustrations that mark each chapter. Love the pointy toed shoes and the ponytail!

Love that secretary desk with all the cubbyholes and the shoes AGAIN!

Okay, it's difficult to pick a favorite here. Love the sweater tied at the neck and the ice cream sodas, but most of all I LOVE that Ken had worn a hat. Oh and by the dreamy way in which he is gazing into Barbie's eyes, I don't think Nancy stands a chance.
