Where ever I lay my hat?

It's ALTERED ALICE time again! If it seems to have come around again really quickly that's only cos I was so late with my piece last month!
Anyway onto this month where we are celebrating Mad Hatter Day in the USA.......Mad Hatter Day is determined by the label in the Hatters Hat so in the UK is June 10th and in the USA October 6th......any excuse to celebrate it twice!
Your challenge is to celebrate the Mad Hatter, and as OPTIONS you can use something that twinkles or shines AND/OR you can bring some spookiness into it since we are all having a "Twinkle twinkle little bat" sing-along around our mad tea table!

So I made my version of the Mad Hatters seems he left the table and forgot his hat!
This month we are sponsored by new quintessentially English stamp company INDIGOBLU
I used three Hatter images from their 2 Alice stamp sets inside the spaces in the back of my chair and as we are in the Hallowe'en month I opted to add some bats!

 The Hatters hat hangs on the back of the chair...........along wth its usual price label it also seems to have acquired a bat!

 My bats are made from bottle caps( with bats printed on them) and wings from previous sponsor Stampotique.

I like it. The stamps from Indigo Blu are really good. I like them a lot, they also haven nice objects. That chair will look so good in a house with Halloween coming up, the Mathatter looks a bit spooky if you ask me.

LOVE this! That chair shape is SO cool, and the way you have used the rungs to frame the stamped images is FAB! LOVE the hardware cloth, adds such a cool textural element. And of course, gotta love some Stampotique bats! For some reason this makes me think of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" "What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country."
