Alice, Put The Kettle On



-- and we'll all have tea.


Hello everyone!

First things first. Thanks so much to Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist for putting this show on for us today -- for the third annual Mad Tea Party. If you go here, you will be able to view so so many Blogovians having their MAD TEA PARTIES.

Now, I am not mad. Just a little dizzy! Ha! You would be too if your pen just magically started drawing on its own, producing some familiar characters ...



And if minutes away from guests arriving, your cat drank up something that caused this --


Say, didn't I tell you to leave that alone? Poor old Kit.

and then because his mantra is curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought him back, he nibbled on something and this happened ...

Get him away from the tea set! He's still growing!

Now you won't see the expected crowd. Not even a Red Queen, thank goodness. Altho her ladies in waiting are attending this year. I hear they are fast friends with Tweedledee and Tweedledum, but I think they are a bit easier on the eyes.


But you see the ever so charming Miss Wonderland plus a couple of faces you might just recognize, guests who rarely are invited anywhere. That girl with her personal White Rabbit, for instance.
Although for the life of me, I can't imagine why no one would invite a pig!

I hope you are enjoying the day, tea or no tea. If there is no tea, have mercy! Just get you a cuppa joe.
Candace, Still in Athens.

What a splendid, lovely tea!
When you have the time come and visit me,
for more treats and sweets and friends galore,
although we are quite full we shall have some more.
It is a MAD tea after all.
We shall dance barefoot in the flower beds and have a ball!

Yes, the blog background is wonderful. Oh, I feel bad! I was out of town and didn't check up on when the tea party, promoted by Fanciful Twist, actually happened. I had been meaning to, but I'll be there next year. (I thought you were having your own tea party.) Looks like Kitty may have had some disturbing moments. Hope she's back to normal.

Love the sketching, the barbies, the backdrop on the sides of your site. Thanx for the tea! Won't you join us for tea at our Mad Tea Party - Fairy Tale

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).
