Something About Alice

My latest Alice watercolors on Vintage Alice Book Pages.

I have an Alice in Wonderland that is falling apart, so I took individual pages from it and put watercolor illustrations on them. I will be offering these in my Etsy store, OhMy1. I plan to add more stuff to the store in the coming weeks---be watching!!!

New Adventures of "Alice"

I found a site that has complete downloads of some of the books that are now out of print. While trying to find out information about John Rae who wrote this book, I discovered this site:


The illustrations in this book are beautiful and the price is up there for any volumes of it you can find. The condition of mine isn't very nice, but I don't mind that usually. The illustrations are still in great shape.

I've been real interested lately in transferring some of these illustrations to fabric for making fabric collages, etc. I can't wait until my craft season on the road is over so I can take the time to experiment. Visit my craft blog to see what I am up to. http://shebrews.com

A Purpose for This Blog

I have decided that this will become my blog to discuss what I am reading. I have such a love for books, and such a need to talk about what I am reading. Currently I am reading James Michener's Chesapeake. I added a link on the sidebar for a site I found where you can exchange books for just the cost of shipping. I haven't done any trading yet, but you list what you have available, and then go on a hunt for what you want. Meanwhile, you can hook up with other bibliophiles. I love it!!!
I will be back to discuss Michener's book.
