Alice in Luckyland

My friend Mindy at  gave me a box of vintage Alice in Wonderland note cards.  I am kind of in love with the beautifully tinted Tenniel reproductions.  I am torn between using them to send out charming little missives to my friends or hoarding them away for my viewing pleasure only.

Even the little box the "correspondence notes" came in is adorable.  I just love the bright vintage colors of the box.  The note cards were from Mindy's grandfather's estate, so eight of the cards were sent out to eight of his lucky friends.  There are six of the original designs left.  As happy as I am with the thoughtful little gift there is one lone thing niggling at my brain.  I know it s silly, but I can't help wondering what the seventh image was?

Regardless of what that final images was I am just so lucky to have a friend who salvaged such a sweet little gift for me.  Thank you Mindy, maybe I will just have to send you a little "correspondence note" to let you know how much I appreciate the thoughtfulness.
