News of a Tea Party....

...from far away in Arizona. The news was carried by a little rabbit with an enormous bag of old watch pieces. He scattered them on the table, asked his important question-''Can you come?'' then ran off super fast. We heard his name is Usain Bunny but I don't know if that was just the Cheshire cat (who is very slow and a little lazy) just having a joke. As the rabbit bolted, a little piece of paper fell from his pocket-the one where he keeps his watch I think. On it, in tiny but very neat handwriting, were some directions, written in rhyme.
''Follow the trail of glittery feet,
of sunflowers, dancers and doggies sweet,
Ask for Vanessa and then you will meet,
The magical tea party lady.'' 
We got our best lace and dresses out, fed the horses, polished the silver and set off.
It was a long journey, through fragrant fields, and past giant furry monsters with big teeth and claws, who would run away at a strange rattling sound from inside the giant's house.





Please join us for a while, and have some tea and cake,  before you fly away to A Fanciful Twist, to see what surprises are waiting there...



Thank you Vanessa, for hosting another mad tea party!
