Roselind

This window display brought Roselind’s memories right back to Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland.” Her name is actually compromised of two parts. One part Rose Garden of Wonderland fame and one part great aunt Linda. Her parents dropped the (a) because they thought this spelling was much more mysterious in a Wonderland kind of way.

Let’s move on to the costume she was asked to wear. Straight out of the original illustrations of John Tenniel depicting the strange characters Alice would meet along the way. In this setting the 21st century does not exist. At night when the streets were dark and empty she expected a parade including the Cheshire Cat, Mad Hatter, King & Queen of Hearts (just to name a few) to wave as they passed by the window.
