alice in wonderland, bunny rabbits
first of all, the other night i went on a date with dad, addie and art to see tim burton's alice in wonderland in 3d. i really wanted to dress up all alicey, but i realized quickly that i own almost nothing in the shade of light blue (why is that the go-to alice color?) but, more importantly could this be true? odd. curioser and curioser. i quickly had to go to etsy and start making plans to purchase everything i can in variations of periwinkle, cornflower, sky, and robins egg blue. in the meantime, i do have this swingin frock my grandma made in the 60s so i donned it, deciding to go as a psychedelic alice.
we had fun. we ate at panda express first, never my choice but the fam likes it. and then we frolicked to the movies:
at the fancy new Palladio theater in folsom comlete with royal palm trees presiding over the grand entrance. empty like i like it. (is this a terrible sign for the economy? a brand new fancy theater completely deserted? it is a strange and eerily delightful feeling)
and afterwards discussed heartily while art refused to remove his snazzy glasses.
and addie promptly altered her facebook status to proclaim her undying love for the movie.
personally, i am always in love with entering an enchanted new land:
and i especially loved alice's fashions...
and so many other things. but what i really want to talk about is bunnies.
this is obviously a promo shot; sadly there are no REAL bunnies in the film. in fact the cgi stuff gets a little old but that's beside the point.
the real point is, i guess i love bunny rabbits. maybe it's just because easter is coming and the local thrift store has proudly displayed all their cute eccentric old easter stuff and i'm enthralled.
you all know i can't resist a holiday themed deocration. especially a vintage one.
yes i did. i bought this:
and who could resist these sweet ladylike faces?
and last but not least.
i mean, c'mon.
so anyway. needless to say i went ahead and decorated for easter even though i don't know when it is.
and i've even been drinking coffee out of this cup:
and just for good measure, here is my very favorite bunny which i bought at an art sale at my college two years ago right before spring break and then accidentally left in a classroom. i eventually tracked him down two weeks later with the receptionist of the english department and almost shed a tear of joy when we were finally reunited.
maybe that's why i secretly love bunnies so much?
