 I can not remember where i got these pics if they are yours I'm sorry let me know and i will give you the credit.
 Happy Inspirations!!!

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

I recently watched this movie and although being slightly confused loved it!. The set designs and costumes were so beautiful and i was instantly drawn to it. I love that layered gypsy, Alice in Wonderland, Marie Antoinette look don't you?
 















 So googling through the internet i found this gorgeous The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnasuss paper diorama.





 it was made by the clever Julius Perdana from this great site called Paper Replica. It is a replica of the paper theatre at the end of the movie and i can not wait to make it enjoy! just download the file and print!

DIY Wood Fired Pizza Oven

video
My husband and i decided that we wanted an outdoor wood fired pizza oven after seeing it on Better Homes and Gardens. Hubby is a refractory bricklayer so we thought we would give it a go. I was very skeptical at first i thought it wouldn't work but it did and it looks great and better the food that comes out of the oven is so yummy!
It took a long time as we had to save up for each stage of building and it rained for what felt like months but at last it is finished and we are well chuffed. My husband is now my own little Italian Giuseppe and I'm the little women kneading out the dough by hand hang on how did i get stuck with that job oh well.
 Mangiare!!! ( eat up in Italian)

This is the food that i served we had sandwiches as well but they were eaten before i had a chance to take a photo! I served smoked salmon and dill philly cheese, mango chutney and roast beef and ham and cheese. Chesire cat chocolate cupcakes, cake pops macaroons, strawberries and rainbow cake.
 






We played musical chairs, pin the grin on the chesire cat, pop the balloon of the others foot, throw the stones into the mad hatters hat, the golden egg pinata, follow and copy the white rabbit. Everyone ate and danced the day away. We had great fun and i hope you all did too can't wait to see what you all did for your mad hatter party. HAVE FUN!
