In the realm of Weird & Wonderful (our theme for the month!) there are none weirder or more wonderful than the characters found in the pages of Lewis Carroll's classic, Alice in Wonderland. Mad Hatter Day is celebrated on October 6th because the original illustration shows the character with a paper marked 10/6 in his hat (actually referring to the cost of the hat - 10 shillings and 6 pence). The stamp from Blank Page Muse does not actually include this detail but I decided to add it when I created a shrink plastic charm for my bracelet.
