Life has been just work, work, work lately but...Richard and I were invited to a garden party recently. The theme was "Alice In Wonderland" and it felt like Wonderland to me! The garden was beautiful-peaceful and serene. Such a pleasant spot!
One of the guests MADE these cookies. Aren't they exquisite?
Another guest made this centerpiece for the table! It was so large that it was decided to display it outside. Look at the detail!
Take time to smell the roses. You know I did!
What did we bring to the party? Richard wanted to take a bottle of Pimm's but they were sold out! Never mind, he found the most amazing bottle of french wine with the bottom of the bottle shaped like a rose. I am not kidding! Cote des Roses (Check it out...see if you love the bottle as much as I do!) Oh! And just to make sure we had something from England, we also brought along a bottle of Stone's Ginger Wine. Cheers!
(Neither one of us had a drink while we were there, I think we only drank water. We are such a fun couple! HA! No, you can't drink and drive and it's not fair to drink when your husband can't, so...)
Now, you can see from this tea towel that Lewis Carroll (real name Charles Dodgson) was born in Daresbury in Cheshire but as you know, he lived most of his life in Oxford. However, he spent the last twenty summers of his life in Eastbourne in East Sussex! (I might have mentioned Eastbourne to you in my past posts!)
There is the most wonderful book by Jenny Woolf entitled "The Mystery Of Lewis Carroll". I highly recommend it!
Jenny Woolf is also a blogging friend and she told me that he loved the walk up to Beachy Head and that he treasured the view.
I love that she shared that with me!
Take care, everyone! I have about one million things I want to post about, so I hope I can keep all of it on my mind until I have time to do so.
