The first book I remember reading by myself was Through the Looking Glass by Lewis Carol. I was in grade one in an elementary school in Vancouver that was built in the early 1900′s, and it had a big glorious library in the basement where I would go and sit and read for what seemed like hours and days. It was absolute heaven! Ever since then, I’ve had a soft spot for all things Alice in Wonderland. And yes, I did appreciate Tim Burton’s latest interpretation. I’ve put together some of my favourite Alice inspired items, and I have to tell you: I am seriously considering wearing a short blue organza dress and mary janes to school on a day when I need a little more fantasy and adventure.
