I've ordered a few little things from Etsy here and there (mostly for the house) in the last few weeks, and so when I got a little package all the way from our Canadian neighbors today, I thought it must be something I purchased.
But it was an unexpected, out-of-the-blue gift from the kind owner (Shelagh) of this Etsy shop! This is why my post has title justification.
It is an extremely old Alice edition (1898, I believe) for my collection.
The inscription is darling, and reads:
"St. George's Sunday School
1st Prize, Class 7
I wish I had been so lucky as to attend a Sunday School in which a copy of Alice in Wonderland is de rigueur prize material!
Oh! And thank you so much for all of your enthusiasm over the Anytime Valentines. They sold out quite quickly today, which I would never have anticipated. Thank you, thank you!
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend. I will be painting and drawing and probably mostly living it up as a homebody (one of my very favorite things to do).
