It's time for a Lewis Christmas Carroll over at The Altered Alice!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from The Altered AliceThis month the design team brings you their holiday wishes, and we invite you to send your holiday greetings to The Altered Alice. You have until Friday, Dec. 23 to enter. The winner post will either be a little early or late, as the last Sunday of the month falls on Christmas day!

Our prize this month is a $40.00 gift certificate to Custom Crops, the premier online retailer for crafters of all kinds. From Accuquilt to Zva Creative, adhesives to vinyl and everything in between, Custom Crops offers a huge selection of the products you've been looking for at competive prices with fast, friendly customer service. Thanks to design team member Donna for organizing this Christmas prize!

To celebrate the season, we bring you The Lewis Carroll Memorial Window at Daniell Chapel in England. Notice the left panel where Lewis Carroll and Alice kneel to pay homage to the newly born Christ in this wonderful Nativity scene! This month's quote is actually contained within the windows, do you see it?

The window was designed by stained glass artist Geoffrey Webb,  a must-see for anyone that loves Wonderland. A wonderful Christmas poem by Lewis Carroll is shown in the center three bottom panels, which include characters from Wonderland - the White Rabbit, Dodo, the Caterpillar, Mad Hatter, and more! Our own Sue Roddis visited this chapel and gave me permission to show her close-up photos here, click to enlarge:

We look forward to seeing your holiday greetings, so send us a Christmas card or tag! If it features Wonderland, you will have two chances at the randomly awarded prize instead of one. Multiple entries are fine, but each must be on a separate post. 

Stop by The Altered Alice to see some AMAZING design team inspiration projects, and we hope you will play along as well!


  1. This is a little spooky. Just last night I started reading a book about Christmas feasts and traditions, and on the back of the dust jacket it features one of the Alice in Wonderland panels from this window. I was wondering about it, and then looking through my Google Reader find this post. :D

  2. This is a very cool post. I find it very intriguing that Alice made it into stained glass--for real.

  3. Thanks for sharing this Lynne, ...I had not known about these windows before!
    Happy 2012~
