Scribble Picnic - Favorite Fiction Character. . . . . . .

Watercolor pencils, smudging via PicMonkey editing.

 . . . . . . however on the second time round, she came upon a low curtain
 she had not noticed before, and behind it was a little door about fifteen inches high: 
she tried the little golden key in the lock, and to her great delight it fitted!

The Queen of Hearts has been busy baking today.
 I've decided to bring a mouthwatering selection of
 her delicious raspberry and lemon curd tarts to the
 picnic. . . . . . after all what's a picnic without jam tarts.
 We all need a little sugar for the energy required to
 follow Alice down the rabbit hole and off on the
 ultimate magical adventure.
Alice's 'Wonderland' has to be the most amazing
 expedition to unknown places - goodness I have
 'wanderlust' just thinking about it all. . . . . . . 

. . . . . . . . .and as Cheshire Cat says:
"If you don't know where you're going, any road will get you there." 

Hope you all stop by Michael's SCRIBBLE PICNIC today - it's 
going to be interesting to find out whom each member of the group
has chosen as a favorite fictional character. . . . . . and of course
how they have illustrated this week's challenge. I'm sure it will be one
of the most fun picnics ever!

As for magical adventures and expeditions, I'll be off on another one 
soon. It won't be down a rabbit hole with Alice, but it will be to what is 
reputed to be a magical place - more on that later!

. . . . . and at the picnic, in her clipped British accent,
 Alice called across the Mad Hatter's table. . . . .

"Dorothy dear I'm noticing your sparkly red shoes,
 they're beautiful, however you are rather overdressed
 for a picnic aren't you?" 
Dorothy in her mid-western drawl  replied. . . . . . "come
 on now Alice, this is wonderland isn't it?"


  1. Oh I could stay all day at your picnic.....Alice in Wonderland. Your drawing shows such suspense....Love the dark colors which adds to the feeling of finding something behind the curtain.

    Oh and thanks for the tarts and jam.

    btw Last year when I celebrated my 75th family gave me a huge "Mad Hatter" reminds me of your post today. Thanks for the fun and picnic.

    1. I loved your post about that one, Wanda, back then. That one fellow with his hat was such a hoot! have I ever shown you a pic of myself as the Mad Hatter? :)

  2. I've never read the book but I saw a few Alice in wonderland movies. so is Alice your favorite character or the queen of hearts? I guess you can like them both.

    have a lovely day.

    1. Definitely Alice - she was adventuresome and curious, I like that, especially in youngsters as it makes for interesting grown ups!!!!
      Mary -

  3. Gotta love Alice!
    I did read All the Light We Cannot See - maybe a year ago? It was a very good read.

  4. I like your art work of Alice, she is a great choice for favorite fiction character. The Queen of Hearts drawing is also pretty.

  5. I love this post Mary! :) Really love it! :) It's so much fun and your scribble is lovely! :) I'm a big fan of the Queen of Hearts, she is so passively aggressively evil...and sometimes full-on aggressively evil lol! I don't know that I'll taste her tarts though, they could be poisoned...I'll pass for today! ;)

  6. Love the characters you have chosen here Mary, well done!

  7. Perfect choice for you Mary,
    I have never been a fan of Alice but certainly appreciated the imagination in the work.

  8. OOOOh, now I am craving a raspberry and lemon curd tart! Wonderful choice for this week.

  9. Ahhh ... Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz ... fantastical fantacies and I, of course, love the Cheshire Cat. He is such a character and has the ability to disappear when he wants to ... often though I would like to do be able to do that. Your drawings are marvelous and I will have a lemon curd tart, thank you ... another of my favorite things. You are such a delight, Mary and I can't wait to hear about your upcoming adventure :)

  10. Oh gosh, Mary, I got goosebumps reading your last paragraph! I LOVE it! and yes, it IS wonderland!! Beautiful contribution of Alice. I love her. She's so wonderful. Now....if I could only make a tart! ;)


  11. What a fun post and a great illustration, Mary! Love it! Jam tarts sounds delicious...mind you, I'm a fruit mince pie gal myself. :)

    I wonder where you might be going to soon? My curiosity is piqued...

  12. Oh my gosh, dear Mary, you always write THE most wonderful contributions to the picnic and I love your entries too. Thank you!

    And, yes, btw, it IS always wonderland at Scribble Picnic anyway!

    delicious raspberry and lemon curd tarts -- I am sure to scarf a few down and tuck some away for later too. Quite agree--what's anything, actually, without a yummy tart?! I mean, they should be at weddings too. :)

    My older sister's favourite book is Alice in Wonderland so when she had a daughter, she called her Alice for that very reason. And while she's half American, she couldn't be any more English really. A but heavier than the classic heroine however. ha.

    I wonder where you are going! I can think of many places that fit the bill! :) You, question: do you ever NOT have wanderlust, come to think of it? How does Bob keep up with you. He strikes me as the most amiable husband. Looking forward to meeting one day too.

    Well, as I noted, must dash, people to see and toad to watch out for. Thank you for the visit adn all the goodies, so to speak! :)


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
