A Mad Tea-Party!

Alice remembered something strange that had happened to her one day... It all started with the white rabbit and a fall.......
There were keys and cups and teapots and watches involved, if she remembered correctly. And a strange tea party with a Mad Hatter and his animal friends...

If Alice had the choice, I think she would have liked a strawberry or two and a fondant fancy to accompany her tea. Please help yourself!

Today though, she is enjoying a tea party in the company of her new acquaintances. It all seems so familiar...It may be a little strange, but at least the sun is shining.
We could join Alice for a little while, have a tiny cup of tea and then meander over to see Miss Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist, who is organising this Mad Tea Party! I am going to rush off there now to see what surprises will unfold and to eat a delicious morsel or two!Before we go, look who has gatecrashed the party! Perhaps she will sing us a song and then we can be off...Please take some flowers with you, they smell so lovely! Before you go-have you seen this? I had no idea that this was being made so thank you Renee! It looks great.
I will leave the washing up for later!

Renee said...

Dear Sarah those girls of yours are quite snooty. They show nothing but disdain for the poor dormouse.

Can you talk to them please.

What a wonderful post!!

Poetikat said...

Sarah - This was wonderful! Was that Susan Boyle? Great take on the day.
(Sorry, it didn't work out for me - I don't think the hostess got my comment - there was no indication on the list and I had a busy day yesterday with picking my mom up at the airport. I bowed out gracefully before anyone showed up and was disappointed.)

You did a fantastic job of interpreting the event!

Helooooooo sweet friend!! I love your art, and you Mad Tea Party Display. I wish on was on your side of the pond :)) Playing!! What fun we would have! Thank you for being a Wonderful WOnderland friend!! xoxo

fairiemoon said...

That was a weird trailer and it looked like it had Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka in it rather than the pictures I've seen of him as the Mad Hatter. So, not so whimsical, huh? A bit more Goth.

A very Merry Unbirthday!
Erin :)
