Had a read at the chapter in Alice last night with the mad hatters tea party in and came to the conclusion that Lewis Caroll must have been on drugs when he wrote the book, it's so bizarre lol! Very interesting challenge this, besides all the normal stuff like teacups, cakes etc and dormice (now that I'd like to see!), they do have a discussion about time as well, so maybe watches could come into it?

Great challenge. I have absolutely no ideas at this stage, but I guess that makes it a very good challenge.

right, i shall get the ball rolling with mine. the first images that came into my mind where all from the disney movie so i tried to keep away from that and i went for mad victorian instead. i did read the tea party chapter again and they are stuck at 6 o'clock, hence the watch. i kinda stuck with the cheshire cat colours, though.
