Mad Hatters Tea Party

Below is an antique image from teaspirit.com of two grannies having tea... although some say they are witches. Whatever they are, they appear to be having a good time. A cup of anything shared with a friend is always good for the heart... and around this time of year, the spirits, don't you know?

Hello Everyone!

Saturday, 25 October, yours truly is hosting the Inaugural Mad Hatters Tea Party. Yes, there will be hats! I have this outrageous one I will be wearing -- and you will see photos, I promise.

I love hosting a tea party or a brunch for friends and newcomers. Let them eat cake! As in an oldfashioned Sally Lund cake as well as other delectables, savories and whatnots; teas, coffee and hot cocoa will abound. And the infamous cheese biscuits, courtesy Kitten! Plus party favours for the guests.

To the right are a couple of works in progress, and as you can see they are still on plain backgrounds, done with the watercolour pencils and Crayolas. Yes, I am still a big kid.

The first is called "Blondie" for lack of a better title.
This other morose kid is called "Green Eyed Monster".
Work is pretty tiring and depressing this earnings season what with the financial upheavals... and now it's obvious that the "globalization" everyone touts means that other countries are feeling the pinch and how! Be sure to remember there are those very much less fortunate and pitch in where and when and however you can.

And now, putting away the soapbox I have just stepped down from, I remain very truly yours,

Goody TwoShoes

Your tea party certainly sounds fun!
I really like that teabox...I am sure they are sweet grannies like me!
We are pretty well off still here in our fair nation, I for one feel greatful.

We are, Velvet Ginger. I still can't believe you're a granny. LOL.

Fun blog -- really enjoy your art. Have you thought about using water colors for your portraits? Your drawings seem like they'd go perfect with that medium.

Beautiful portraits , love it.

Thanks, everyone! CafeArtiste, I have indeed gone back to watercolours for some of my "bigger" work... talk about needing a refresher course! I am also going to be upping my calligraphy the next few months.

Lay Hoon, thank you for your sweet words and visit. All of you ladies are so appreciated.
