Ira said...

All of your Alice creations are stunning Cindy! Your work is always such a delight to look at!! As far as I can remember from old story books I thought the song was about a walk with all kinds of critters? Hugs, Ira

stampdiva said...

Dear Cindy
When we visit your Blog we are always have a brighter day.
Now was the the Mock Turtle's song all about soup?
Am I correct or have I got the stories muddled in my head?

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I'll just say "Hi" and good morning, Cindy! Still working on the first cup of coffee. : )

Donnie said...

I'm going to say "hi". I think it was about soup too but google makes it look like snails dancing or it's too early.

cottageprims said...

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Cindy Sweetie...
How delightful this is today. I love starting the morning off with a little fun. The Mock Turtle sang: Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you join the dance? He was singing about the Lobster Quadrille dance I believe.

You have done such a beautiful job with these cards sweet girl. I love the key holes. SO beautiful and magical at the same time. Your talents just amaze me totally.

Thank you for this wonderful week of treasures so far. I have so enjoyed myself. I hope you have a magical Wednesday. Hope to talk to you soon.

Many hugs sweetie and SO much love, Sherry

The Mock Turtle's Song

"Will you walk a little faster?" said a whiting to a snail,
"There's a porpoise close behind us, and he's treading on my tail.
See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance!
They are waiting on the shingle - will you come and join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, won't you join the dance?

"You can really have no notion how delightful it will be
When they take us up and throw us, with the lobsters, out to sea!"
But the snail replied, "Too far, too far!" and gave a look askance -
Said he thanked the whiting kindly, but he would not join the dance.
Would not, could not, would not, could not, would not join the dance.
Would not, could not, would not, could not, could not join the dance.

"What matters it how far we go?" his scaly friend replied,
"There is another shore, you know, upon the other side.
The further off from England the nearer is to France -
Then turn not pale, beloved snail, but come and join the dance.
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, will you join the dance?
Will you, won't you, will you, won't you, won't you join the dance?

Cindy Adkins said...

WOW, Liz!!!!

Daniella said...

HI Cindy!! I have to just say HI!! Alice in Wonderland is a mish-mosh to me. It was a crazy story for sure!!!

Your work is amazing, and I love reading about the artists in your magazine!!


Wendy said...

The mock turtle and the gyphon sing "The Lobster Quadrille", they sing of the dance of the lobsters. "Will you, won't you, will, you, won't you . Won't you join the dance."
I keep a copy of "Alice in wonderland" in my purse that I carry at all times. and I also have a copy in most rooms of my house.
....Ok it is my favorite. I love nonsense.
Please, Please include me in your wonderful giveaway. I have been waiting for this week.
Wishes and Whimsy
Wendy from Wonderland

Linda M. said...

Hi Cindy, Really cute pockets and special things in the pockets too. I think he was singing a song to the snail trying to get him to come out of his comfort zone and explore other shores. I hope you dance... Hugs, Linda

Faerie Moon Creations said...

Oh, I am LATE to the party! The Mock Turtle sang about soup! Lovely goodies, Cindy!!! Theresa

Devonay said...

I only remember the song that is playing. It was on a Disney albumn that my sister and I had growing up. Again, I love everything you've done! So interesting, so many details to devour. You are awesome!

Julie Forest said...

Oh dear! I'm late, I'm late, I'm late! For a very important date...well, tea! Hi, Cindy! Sorry I'm stopping by so late but today's been very busy. I see you have 2 more gorgeous pocket whimsies! Hope you're having a fabulous week! :)

Sarah said...

Hmmm...what did the mock turtle sing about? I have no idea...but I will say I think he sang about having a very cold neck. Therefore, he headed off to his sewing room beneath the sea and crafted himself a lovely mock turtleneck sweater so he could stay warm and toasty through the rest of the story.

Thanks for a great giveaway!

It would be so much fun to create things around a theme like Alice in Wonderland. You could take it in so many creative directions.
