My favorite Wonderland denizen has always been the White Rabbit. Being perpetually late myself, I truly understand his frustrated cries of "Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it's getting!". I have always assumed he is a bit tardy because he is an avid reader and has a terrible time tearing himself away from a good book. I imagine his little home filled with books. Books in every room because you never know when you might have a few minutes to lose yourself in an interesting story...
I recently had the opportunity to birth my vision of the White Rabbit's home inside a sweet little Miniature China Cabinet from Alpha Stamps. The china cabinet or hutch, as I like to call it, looks quite shabby chic on the outside.
There are images and pages from an old copy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as well as images from Go Ask Alice Collage Sheet and We Are All Mad Here Collage Sheet all over the outside.
And, of course, I used lots of Wonderland themed charms and doodads! Like the adorable Tiny Cup of Tea with Lemon and the "drink me" bottle.
But... my favorite part is inside...
where I created the White Rabbits home in 1:48 scale!
If you look closely at the desk in his den, you will see a tiny cup of tea and lots of books. The books were made using a collage sheet I created with all kinds of things to use in a 1:48 scale house. The lamp on the corner is a Gold Chess Queen Charm with a lamp shade from the collage sheet added to it :)
There are more books in his bedroom and a Tiny Bronze Cauldron Charm with a plant growing from it. And just look at that bathroom! Did you notice the books on the floor next to the toilet?
In the tiny kitchen there are books on the table and a Tiny Bronze Teapot Charm on the stove.
Now I know not everyone is gonna want to make their own White Rabbit's Hutch but why not make a tiny little house in a hutch devoted to one of your own favorite literary characters? The scale is small but it makes everything so much faster to complete! And the furniture is so very tiny and cute!
A supply list for everything I used from Alpha Stamps is located here.
Thanks for hopping by and reading my blog. It means the world to me that you are interested in what I have to say and the things I create!
