Happy Birthday Alice dear

Lewis Caroll's Alice in Wonderland was published  150 year ago, in 1865. It's one of my favorite books and I think I should celebrate. Happy birthday dearest Alice!

As a celebration, I think it would be nice to re-publish my very special paper cups . I made a mobile out of them, 4 years ago ,that still hangs in my kitchen . It dances with the slightest movement of air and I like it very much. Dancing cup are magical. 

Twinkle, twinkle, little bat!
How I wonder what you’re at!”
You know the song, perhaps?’
’I’ve heard something like it,’ said Alice.
’It goes on, you know,’ the Hatter continued, ‘in this way:—
“Up above the world you fly,
Like a tea-tray in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle
— Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
