Tea Party ideas for Thursday

Did you know there was a red headed illustration of Alice in Wonderland? I adore the pen and ink illustrations by Sir John Tenniel and plan to use them for most of Lydia's Tea Party Birthday imagery. However, I was so excited to stumble on these color illustrations by Mabel Attwell in the early 1900's.

Apparently, the British copywrite for the story expired in 1907 and so there was a flood of new versions with divergent illustrations on the market around the turn of the century. I found these images on a website that actually retells the Alice story, chapter by chapter, but with illustrations by several artists for the same scene. Here are a few more of my favorites.
