“Curiouser and curiouser!” Cried Alice (she was so much surprised, that for the moment she quite forgot how to speak good English.
An Alice is a wonderful thing to have, if you don’t have one, you must make it of great importance to meet one. That’s me channelling my inner Lewis Carroll, thought he does it much better than I do. The fact that I have an Alice means that from time to time, I do like to use the famous Alice for inspiration. My Alice does happen to share a few striking qualities with the original, such as her curiosity and stubborn demeanour. She is not afraid of strange new worlds each time I introduce her to something new, so it was only fitting that I share a few corners of Wonderland with you all from Alice’s new bedroom.
I’m so excited for Alice to start sleeping in her own room at Nana’s house, so I thought that dressing it up a little first would be a great incentive for her. We aren’t quite ready for the toddler bed, so Alice still sleeps in a cot that we will convert into a bed when she is ready.
First things first, we have a floor standing bookcase (Ikea) with a rather special edition of Alice in Wonderland. It is a personalised book from the Timeless Series, and this is from The Gift Experience. I absolutely love this website for beautiful, personalised gifts that really are so special. We have a little Alice doll and caterpillar waiting for story time, as well as a giant white rabbit which Alice loves to use as a big, squishy pillow!
We have a hand-crafted wooden arrow pointing the way to Wonderland, and a little bed to mirror her own so she can put her dolls to sleep too. Little Alice can go in here, while big Alice is opposite- all I need is a little bottle saying ‘drink me’ so she can start to role play the book.
Also from The Gift Experience is this exquisite wall clock. We had this personalised just for Nana, who is an expert tea drinker. All we need to do is find the perfect place for it in Wonderland.
One last thing I’m adding to the decor are these reusable wall decals from Elrose Cottage. I am going to get Alice to help decide where she wants these to go- within reason! These are fully removable and add the perfect, final touch to Alice’s personal Wonderland.
