Alice, Oh Alice....

Haven't been able to blog much...or rest much for that matter!

It's been beyond busy here at Vintageweave and we're finding that we're having to turn design business away the plate is so full....

Among the many SUPER FUN projects going, we are asking our blogger friends to help if they have in their possession any antique lace that looks like this for a set design for Tim Burton's adaptation of Alice in Wonderland....




Many old and wonderful items are being gathered for the tea party, but ten yards of this lace is really needed quite quickly so email us if you have it stored away some where! As with all set designs, timing is immediate so after the director walk-through on Thursday, August 14, it will no longer be needed....

Filming starts in October (shooting in London and Los Angeles), and this is a project I personally can't wait to see through to fruition as Tim will do wacky and wondrous things to this beloved story I'm sure!
A sweet young Australian will take the coveted role of ALICE, but
Of course it doesn't hurt that this mug will be gracing the role of Mad Hatter...



And I promise to be back to blogging soon with pics and stories of all the wonderful projects!

(A special shout out to Ms Hillary Duff and her lovely Mama for their treat today, and for their enourmous hearts to rescue such needy animals. My niece will be tickled pink. Ms Hillary really is such a doll and neat young woman y'all.)

Well, I thought you might have fallen into Wonderland yourself! Ha
Sounds exciting. I just purchased 3 black and white charms in french script of Alice in Wonderland. Good luck to you. I hope you will try to get some rest. I need to re-read Alice in Wonderland as I have sorta forgot what it was all about?

Sorry I have no collection of lace :(

Sorry...no lace...but what a treat to be working on such a fantastic project like this. I just love Tim Burton's take on movies...usually so colorful and full of whimsy. Alice in Wonderland, will I'm sure, be no exception. Oh...and Johnny Depp, his muse, simply the best eye candy!

Have fun!

I can't wait for this movie as it's one of my favorite stories from when I was a kid. I just watched the original disney cartoon version this weekend with my daughters. Fun for you! No lace in my closet-sorry!
