Tea with Alice? Don't mind if I do!

I passed the lovely Whittards of Chelsea Tea today in Glasgow to be stopped by their fabulous new Alice in Wonderland display of new tea, products and two new windows of visual Alice inked treats! Just my style of illustrations! On closer inspection, oh my - the design, packaging, tea, mugs, buscuits - everything, I wanted it all! Have a look - It's been so sunny in Glasgow today so excuse the glare on the pics!

More on the Alice news front - did you know she is 150 years old this year? To celebrate this, fabulous online E-tailers Easy have partnered with the British Library to launch a competition for UK designers to showcase their Alice inspired-wares at the upcoming Alice exhibition in autumn in London. This is a fabulous opportunity for makers, I've added the link below for more information:

And while we are on the subject of all things Alice - my sister's fabulous sewing business was commissioned this year to create and design this amazing Alice dress for one of her clients - isn't is so charming and quirky? ! All things Alice is certainly a trend for this year! Now - who is putting the kettle on for some tea and heart biscuits? ? !
