The Last Parade of the Darlings

Greetings my bloggy pals. How are we all today?

Yes, it is Wednesday. Or at least in some parts of the world. I started prepping this post at 11:59 according to my timezone so that totally still counts as Wednesday, right? 432 more words


Teapot Tuesday - 15/09/14

‘The Queen of Hearts she made some Tarts all on a Summer’s Day…’ I love this Wedgewood Teapot¬†A Lot. In fact I’m quite smitten with the whole tea set! 43 more words


Ace of Alice

I'm falling through the looking glass, not really knowing,
 That the world's spinning past and everything's growing,
 There's a rabbit and I gasp for he seems to be glowing,
 Tell's me time's moving too fast and I ought to get going,
 There's a cat that I can't see except his twisting smile,
 And he's been haunting me and hunting me for mile upon mile,
 I keep my mind off that grin but I know I'm in denial,
 Then my head starts to spin and I'm gone for a while,
 Not to my surprise, I find this place is taking it's toll,
 Then before my eyes, I'm crying, losing control,
 Trying to claw at the dirt, falling down the rabbit hole,
 Feeling nothing but hurt and a fear for my soul,
 This is my role, living to entertain,
 Cake and champagne, drinking tea with the insane,
 Smeared against the pain is the smile that I feign,
 It's a colourful country but my colour has drained,
 Turning blue like my lips, like a vein, like the chatter,
 With all of these psychos God knows who's the Mad Hatter,
 A mouse, hare, a man, and I'm guessing the latter,
 Then my images shatter, a woman dressed in red,
 My heart is a tart in her lover's bed,
 Two colours clash and I'm sure I am dead,
 Red royalty laughs and screams "off with her head",
 But I have not sinned, I have not marred,
 I will not be scarred by the Red Queen's guard,
 I am the wind in the houses of card,
 The joker you treated with disregard,
 This land's full of wonder but that wonder is callous,
 I will bring down the blood stained palace,
 Felling diamonds and spades with a purebred malice,
 I win, for I am, the Ace of Alice.

The City of Kings

The city is full of them: dudes who played a role in my Queen of Hearts tale. They were my first date wonders and many fell victim to my charming ways. 141 more words

Queens of Hearts

I was looking through some old work the other day and came across these two loveheart ladies. They are made with collaged tissue paper, ink and coloured pencil. 19 more words
