Louise, this post is sheer magic. I enjoyed it from the beginning until the end. Is that the sweet little Louise who is drinking magical tea with the Mad Hatter himself? Is she waiting for someone to use the magic golden key to open that door? To continue her journey in Wonderland? I do hope I guessed right and otherwise; you have tickled my imagination, I love that. Have a nice day partying from one mad hatter til the next hare!
Thanks for this!
