These two cute beads were released back in April and now I feel they can help me battle the crazy heat that is capturing all of Europe!
They are both characters from Alice in Wonderland. The Walrus is dressed in a jacket holding a handkerchief and knife. Oysters with Shoes says it already, the bead has three oysters wearing shoes.
This is the story:
“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of many things — of shoes, and ships, and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings — and why the sea is boiling hot, and whether pigs have wings.” The Walrus was speaking, of course, to a group of tender, young oysters that he had coaxed from their comfortable and safe oyster bed with the promise of adventure. Silly oysters! Couldn’t they see that the sophisticated, but sly, gentleman Walrus was hiding a sharp oyster knife behind his handkerchief? Sir Walrus had no intention of discussing “many things” — winged piglets or otherwise — instead, with a side of bread and butter and a generous seasoning of vinegar and pepper, the hungry Walrus quickly gobbled every fat and gullible little mollusk.
O Oysters, come and walk with us!” The Walrus did beseech. A pleasant walk, a pleasant talk, along the briny beach…The young oysters hurried up, all eager for a treat: their coats were brushed, their faces washed, their shoes were clean and neat — and this was odd, because, you know, they hadn’t any feet.
O poor foolish little oysters! They were so excited to join this grand adventure, that they didn’t pause to realize how plump and delicious they looked, and how tasty and satisfying they might be with a dash of vinegar or lemon and a generous bath of hot sauce!
Pop open their snug little shells, pop off their cute little footwear, and it was time for lunch! We love you, Oysters!”
