My Very First Mad Tea Party

There is a place, like no  place on earth.
A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger!
Some say, to survive it,  you need to be as mad as a hatter.  
Which luckily, I am!
~Alice in Wonderland

Whoooooo's excited about  the Mad  Tea Party  over at Fanciful Twist!!!!
Mad   Tea Party Coming  in July
  Well, the party has already started so you're going to be late!!!!!
Follow me...  we can still make it to Schotzy's  woodland cottage... 

You know it is all about celebrating the 150th Anniversary  of  Lewis Carroll's marvelous book!
  But  at Schotzy's party it is all about fun, music, and   tea. Listen, I can hear the music now!!!

The fairies  have assembled..
 Miranda 's   all tuned up!!

Ahh,  we are  so fortunate today, King Frederick Frog  will   take charge and keep  everyone in line!! 
The Twitterings  welcome  one and all!

Ahem!   If you will  all pass right through here please...  we shall  find our  way to the  glen of merriment!
Step carefully here, please...

Right along through here, I  think,.. um...   I hope...
No need to pause for a rest... plenty of time for that  soon enough!

Oh, dear,   excuse me, madame,    Oh, please,  I  do  beg your pardon,,,    ahem,,,  now I  do believe,   ...  umm,   yes,   I think......  ah,   at last,  yes,     but if you please, just  one more  left turn through here and we're there!
And  I do believe  we  can see   our way clear  now...

The alarming clock  announces....

And so  ....( Drum roll, please) I present  darjeeling...  for my  darlings!

And the tea is ready!!!
The fairies sing an ode to  the cup!
White rabbit makes  a huge announcement!
YOU  have been chosen  the Queen of the  Party!  The Fairy Queen will  crown you!
 Never  fear, Darling,   the Queen of Hearts is vacationing in Boca!
So be a dear,  would you mind  pouring the  tea for us?
What mischief is this!
Someone has quite  forgotten his manners: he must have left them in his nasty little  burrow  along the garden path....
AwK!  If I may divert your attention.uh,...uh, uh, uh     my dears,,   we shall now   move right through the glass  .. to our tea!
The fairies and the 
 woodland creatures   serenade  the   partiers...  
The Twitterings    declare, "It's  a huge success!"  
 and wish everyone who  visits   a  very  Mad Day!
Hope you  enjoyed  our first  Mad  Tea.. now I'm off to visit  some other parties!  Come on,,, let's go together!
Today is also, Pink Saturday!
  BTW.... As I ran across this wonderful post  I am adding it here to share with mothers do  not   think  they should  teach children about fairies...   I love this   prinicple of  teaching!
I   still believe in the possibility of them.... and my mind loves to imagine them  among the flowers  and  making friends with the woodland creatures.  If C.S. Lewis and Tolkien can have fairies,,,  then    so can we!
