Christmas at Doddington Hall. (Set 2 of 3).

Each year Doddington Hall in Lincolnshire is decorated for Christmas and this year the theme is Alice in Wonderland.
A book written by Lewis Carroll.

"Painting of the Roses" from the story of Alice in Wonderland.
quite a messy process!

Chamber Pot by the bed in this room.

A Pig in a Cot!

This is the bedroom of the Queen of Hearts.  

In this room visitors can hear the Queen snoring & occasionally waking to shout,
"Don't you steal my Tarts"!

The Queens Bloomers?

The Royal Potty!

This staircase and part of the Hall is decorated with playing cards.  They represent
Characters in the original book by Lewis Carroll, the King of Hearts was one character.

The Dodo.  An extinct bird and a character in the book.  It's thought that Lewis Carroll 
included it in his book because it might have represented himself.
Lewis Carroll is a pseudonym, the author's actual name was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. 

"The Dodo is a caricature of the author. A popular but unsubstantiated belief is that Dodgson chose the particular animal to represent himself because of his stammer, and thus would accidentally introduce himself as "Do-do-dodgson".
