The Walrus Visits Queen Alice’s Banquet

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , at 5:45 pm by treacleandinketsy

In one of my early posts, “The Walrus Talks of Etsy,” I attempted to utilize a stanza from “The Walrus and the Carpenter” (Lewis Carroll, 1871) to support my conclusion that you can find just about anything you could possibly imagine on Etsy.  I would like to revisit that theory with a stanza from Queen Alice’s banquet song – the stanza from which Treacle and Ink got it’s name!

“Then fill up the glasses with treacle

and ink,

Or anything else that is pleasant to drink.

with the cider,

with the wine–

And welcome Queen Alice with ninety-times-nine!”

(from “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll, 1871)

    So clever! And you’re right, I don’t think there is anything that you can’t find on etsy. Thanks so much for including my emery sand!

    • You’re very welcome, Laurie! This was a new find for me – I never knew that’s what was inside of pin cushions. How neat!
