THE WiTCH LiST : We're All Mad Here... 13 Kickass Etsy Finds Fit For The 150th Anniversary of Lewis Carroll's Adventures In Wonderland...

Can you imagine what it must be like to create something- say perhaps a highly imaginative story of mythological proportions- and have BOOK NERDS the world over still celebrating it 150 years later?

Do you think Lewis Carroll had any inkling that his epic tale, Alice's Adventures In Wonderland, would garner such enduring devotion?

I wonder...

And- now here we are, 8 years into A Fanciful Twist's Alice-inspired blog hop, The Mad Tea Party, and things just keep getting curiouser & curiouser...

"I'm not strange, weird, off, nor crazy, my reality is just different from yours.” 
-Lewis Carroll

Speaking of curious things...

Have you ever fallen down the rabbit hole that is Etsy?

I certainly have! Many times...

It is a whimsical, witchy wonderland for handmade goods & personal art.

And- even as big business tries to horn in on the quaint-but-mighty action, I am committed to supporting the little shops who continue to stand their small biz ground & serve their faithful fans no matter how curious things get!

That is why I am pleased to present you now with this mad mad madly FUN collection of Wonderland-themed Etsy delights...
