Alice Tumbles After White Rabbit on New Necklace

Tumble NecklaceIf you’re a fan of Alice-themed jewelry, then this news from one of our mimsy minions should tickle you.  An enterprising vendor called Out of Print is now offering a clever necklace depicting Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole in pursuit of the White Rabbit.  It’s available on ModCloth.com.

Note: the site states that for every Out of Print item purchased, Out of Print donates a book to a needy community, which is a nice perk.  This vendor specializes in literary products, and also carries some Alice-themed clothing items, and an iPhone case.  So you may well find a suitable treat for yourself or a loved one, and do a little good for someone else at the same time.

CelebriDucks Toy Series Now Includes Alice

CelebriDucksFrom one of our mimsiest minions comes word of this unique item.  Celebriducks is a company that produces “rubber duck” toy versions of famous figures and characters.  I don’t know why.  They just do.  And the range of their line is quite extensive, so it was perhaps inevitable that our Alice would eventually be “duckified”!  Interestingly, she seems to be wearing a pink dress, which is refreshing.  In a nice touch, they’ve included the White Rabbit and Cheshire Cat, as well.

Nonsensical Advice From An Old Alice Cookbook

alicecookbookIf you’re into all things Alice, and cooking as well, you might enjoy reading this write-up about an out-of-print but amusing Alice-themed cookbook.

In addition to eccentric recipes, the book is liberally “peppered” (sorry, I couldn’t resist) with quotes from two of Lewis Carroll’s works: Feeding the Mind, and Hints for Etiquette, or Dining Out Made Easy.  Here’s a sample of the seasoned and sage (sorry, this is just too easy) advice:

“To use a fork with your soup, intimating at the same time to your hostess that you are reserving the spoon for beefsteaks, is a practice wholly exploded.”
