One Big Story

This is my submission for afccsketch.Some of the items may be familiar to many, and some less so.The tiny elephant is inspired from Frederic Clement's beautifully written and illustrated book, The Merchant of Marvels, Peddlar of dreams.
                               "I also have a troop of elephants
                                all as small as specks of sand
                                who come trumpeting from time to time
                                 into my teacup."

The potion with the "drink me" label, is from Alice in Wonderland  and is reported to taste of cherry tarts, custard, pineapple, roast turkey, toffee, and hot buttered toast.

The broken sign which reads "Trespasses Will" is Piglet's late grandfather's name, "Trespasses William".

Purple Crayon is Harold's, the Kiss belongs to Peter Pan and the Doorway leads to Aslan's kingdom, Narnia.

Sadly, I wasn't able to draw the hour-lilies from Michael Ende's wonderful book, Momo, which were said to have colours and scents that no words were able to describe.

have a great weekend ahead!
