It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad . . .

World - er, no!  I mean Tea Party!!!!

Even if one doesn't drink tea every day, there's something magical about the idea of a tea party, isn't there?  Partly because of Alice's adventures, but not completely, I'm thinking.  Beyond the party favors and pretty dresses and lovely table settings, there is the idea of the never-ending party where there is no time to wash up. . . .

Say!  Does he look familiar to you?  But never mind - it's time to move on to the next party space.  Go to A Fanciful Twist and follow the links to this year's wonderful Mad Tea Party.

And if you enjoy the party, come back next year.  I'm sure we'll have another one and I hope to have more yummy treats to share.

Whew! I fell down the rabbit hole at the last party and it’s taken me days to find my way out. What a lovely gathering and such delightful company! Thanks so much for having me! (And for not mentioning those crumbs on my dress).

LOVE your tea cups!
