Alice in Wonderland... Online

I love Project Gutenberg. They have hundreds of public-domain books free online.

Including... Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (which inspired this Drink Me necklace)!!! 

You can download it, or read it online here. Happy falling-down-the-rabbit-hole!

Love this quotation!

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those you mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."  
~ Dr. Seuss

P.S. I will look into changing my blog colors ASAP--I realize white on black can be hard on the eyes! Nothing else seems to look good, though... Hmmm.....

Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day! Whether or not you celebrate privately (like Michael Scott), it is a special day for all, and someday I want to be in
Punxsatawney, Pennsylvania, for their official celebration. I visited Punxsatawney on a road trip once--it's a lovely town; I got some groundhog-themed l
uggage tags that I still use! I'd like to go back.
This cute little guy (or girl) is not a groundhog, but a beaver--and sooo sweet! Thanks to SparkePaw for letting me feature her cute mirror!

I also have this
lovely beaver necklace (or pin) available in my shop*Sigh* I wish I could have a groundhog as a pet.

Happy Groundhog Day to all!

Why I love Escape to Witch Mountain...

Reasons I'm loving
Escape to Witch Mountain

(No spoilers allowed... I haven't even seen that much of it yet)

1. "We love living in this strange house with ice cream and gigantic stuffed animals and a real carousel horse and caged-in dogs and self-propelling puppets and no neighbors. How totally normal this all is.

2. The 1976
Freaky Friday-esque music in the opening credits

3. I love that I am now brave enough to watch this movie! As a kid, whenever it was advertised on the Disney channel, I would close my eyes and cover my ears until the commercial is over. And look at me now!

It appears that there is a remake in the works. I do not like remakes!!! I do not like remakes!!!

Shout-out to Sarah Sweet of
i like you for reminding me about this movie!
