At the movies today I got up close and personal with a great movie poster ... this is approximately a third of the poster for Alice in Wonderland.

I particularly loved the addition of a library book in Wonderland!

There are some really lovely details in the rest of the poster as well.

A Sinking Feeling

Having felt, like the Duchess of Bedford, that 'sinking feeling' around 3pm in the afternoon, we decided to partake in an Afternoon Tea at the Peninsula Tea Gardens. The food was very good, the tea lovely, but the real luxury of the experience was the surroundings of Tranby House and the amazing silver service and fine china. I know I could cook an even more exquisite lot of quiches, cakes and sandwiches; but the scones were exceptional and the weight of silver spoons, water jugs and tea strainers would have me back there again and again.

A day like today, with a hot dry breeze demands a few things:

1. Staying on the beach until long past sunset,

2. Reading an excellent book until the light REALLY runs out, and

3. A few good minutes spent sifting the sand for treasures from the sea.
