which leads to bacchanalia as a feast involving much drinking and dancing
which is perhaps evidenced here

  8. She looks as though she might be tip toeing off to do something very naughty - what a great match to the theme.

  10. Right on theme, today our local fests such as Octoberfest could raise a glass or two to Bacchus. I had forgotten that mythology until this post. Great card.

  12. Well she certainly looks like she's had a few 'nips' of something! Her pose reminds me of Tiny Tim & tiptoeing through the tulips.
