The Eccentric Tea Party. It's finally here!

What a beautiful evening for a tea party!
When I read about A Fanciful Twist's Mad Hatter Tea Party 2010 http://afancifultwist.typepad.com/
I knew I just had to join in the fun with all the other bloggers.

I have a little wonderland in my backyard where I have a little bristo table with a chandelier along with my wonderful swing. I spend many hours escaping life's stresses here in my wonderland.

We all need a bit of fantasy in our lives, don't you think?

Oh! I am so excited to bring you along. Well, come on lets go through here...


Oh My! here is the doorknob...




And the key! OH, look at the cobwebs, I haven't been here for a while.

Look! look over there. Here we are!




Oh, what a lovely setting. Everything is waiting for us. And it is so pretty.




Look at the table cloth. and the chandelier!
Oh the cups are so cute, and the napkins. Ummm, look at the truffles!



Oh Dear, Here I go again, forgetting my manners. Just rambling on and on. Oh, Well, ah, my, here, have a seat won't you.


Look at the lovely cupcakes baked by http://theunseasonedchef.blogspot.com/
they look so delicious! She is so talented. ;)

Oh Dear! What time is it?

Is anyone else coming?
I wonder?
I hope they are not late!


OK Mr. Rabbit, we will have a cupcake and cookies.
Why must you always be in such a hurry?


Well..... there is that Cheshire Cat. He is such a nuisance. Does he look funny to you?
That cookie did have a different flavor. Oh My...


Here, lets have a spot of tea. Tea always makes everything better!



Have another cup cake too. UMMM


The Mad Hatter is hiding but I see his bike.


Oh, there he is. He is sulking because he couldn't find his good top hat, but I like this one with his skin tone. Don't you agree?



"Sigh" I am getting rather tired. I think I will lie down on the swing and take a nap, then I will finish my book about Mr. Lewis Carroll. He is such an interesting man with such silly stories. I just don't know where he gets them.



Good night all, I hope you enjoyed yourselves. Remember to visit all the other parties. Maybe I'll see you there!

  28. 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! Thanks so much for having me! (And for not mentioning those crumbs on my dress). Your table was set so lovely and fun!

    Btw, I love the name of your blog, makes me think of one of my favorite quotes: That so few now dare to be eccentric marks the chief danger of our time.
