~Outside the Box = My Mind n Alice's Wonderland~

~This is the set of 2 Children's Dinnerware Set that I told you about yesterday. They are from a local friend of mine who gave them to me and said she tired of them and to sell them in my shop or website. LOL...silly girl, I have to keep them for a bit!!!! There are no makers marks on them except the words "Saison Des Alice" in French which translates to "Season of Alice" the words in the middle of the dinner plate is Croatian. How strange huh?
If anyone knows anything about these, please let me know......might have to send a picture of them into Country Livings, What is it worth column.~
~I love the Rabbit skipping away on the saucer....LOL...he just makes me giggle every time I see him~
~Sometimes I think something is wrong with me because I am always like this....
I THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX~

~These awesome beaded CROSSES are NAPKIN RINGS....I found them at Pier One and of course, I DID NOT SEE NAPKIN RINGS......I saw adornments for my living room.~
~Pretty added over one of my glass bottles~
~3 of them really jazzed up my plain black clock~

~Perfect over a candle holder~
~Check out my OLD 1920's Flapper Girl HAT BOX....
I found it this past summer on our road trip to Northwest Iowa.
GET THIS....My Mom and Dad got married in and then lived in Sheldon, Iowa. It's the store that MY MOM AND DAD rented their first apartment from. THEY LIVED UPSTAIRS ON TOP OF THE STORE. Not to mention, it has SHELDON, IOWA listed on it. I NEVER KNEW THIS TIL I GOT HOME AND SHOWED MOM THE HAT BOX!!!!
Imagine how much more special this has made the hat box. And to think, I found it in Storm Lake, Iowa....not Sheldon at a shop called KRISTI'S. (that's exactly how I spell my Kristi girls name)

SO NOTHING LIKE THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX....
It does have it's benefits. LOL
Hugs and Love, Amy

Ever since my childhood I have been scared to death of Alice in Wonderland.
I can't see movies or read the book without almost claustrophobic like response.
Strange
but your set is darling. I would definitely hold onto it for sure!
Your hat box is a great find and what history it holds, AWESOME!
