Alice In Wonderland Themed Garden


I have been super busy this past four weeks designing, building, and decorating my garden. I absolutely love the wonder, mystery, and true extraordinary foolishness of Alice in Wonderland. Everything about it makes me smile, I remember watching the 1950's version when I was a kid and still love it today and the new one that came out in 2010 is so amazing I knew I just had to use it as inspiration towards my garden. 

I am not quite finished yet but here is what I have done so far.


The signs were made using old plywood I had laying around when my chicken run and duck house were being made.

I found an old tea set at a thrift shop for less than $2 that I thought was perfect.




 I drew and painted this wonderful portrait of Cheshire Cat from the 1950's version of Alice in Wonderland. 


Everything you see I have made with my own two hands. The fence and arch were made using sticks, branches and logs that were in my side yard and some of it came from a dead tree I had to chop down in my backyard. I have a few more things I want to do yet, but so far I think it is wonderful. What do you think?
