King and Queen of Hearts

"The King and Queen of Hearts were seated on their throne when they arrived,
 with a great crowd assembled about them -- all sorts of little birds and beasts, 
as well as a whole pack of cards ...."

Scarlet Umbrellas? Oh, my.

“The Italians are fond of red clothes, peacock plumes, and embroidery; 

and I remember one rainy morning in the city of Palermo, 
the street was ablaze with scarlet umbrellas.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson 

Oh, my. Imagine that.

Who Doesn't Love Cake?

Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: 
she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, 
on which the words "EAT ME" were beautifully marked in currants.

Red Velvet Cake
"Well, I'll eat it," said Alice, 
"and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key; 
and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door; 
so either way I'll get into the garden, and I don't care which happens."

~ Lewis Carroll, "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"

There are no bad days; some are just better than others ....
