The Engagement by meluseena The Engagement by meluseena
When they announced their engagement, oh how the village tongues wagged! They'd been seen together for months and it shouldn't have surprised anyone.. but somehow idle minds love to revel in gossip.

The engagement of Mr. Down and Ms. Merryweather was an intimate affair in Mr. Down's beautiful garden, with a couple of bewildered, striving-hard-to-be-polite Merrywathers and a number of well-to-do, Jolly Downs from warrens beyond local hills as guests.

And the malicious naysaying villagers, decidedly -not- invited, spent that evening in the pub gossipping about the couple.
'But he's so -old- for her!' they lamented.

The image itself, this amazing work of art, is absolutely perfect and astounding. The story... well let's just say it's the icing on the wedding cake.
I'd like to have a brain that functions the way yours does.. it produces some of the most interesting images and words I've ever laid eyes on. Simply perfect friend.

People are hardwired to think of Alice if there's a rabbit in clothing!

This is just, so incredible. But I will admit that at first glance I thought the 'Engagement' was between Alice and the Rabbit :D

The only 'behind the scenes' collage I have is the elizabeth one. I won't be revealing all of my secrets! That was a one off.
