A Mad Tea Party 2010

I am joining A Fanciful Twist for A Mad Tea Party 2010. Click on the link and go visit to see the annual tea madness. (Re-post from 2010.)  
(This is such a fun party, many participants held their teas with children.  Such a perfect idea for entertaining children in the summer.  Vanessa holds this party every year, click for this years info.  It will be June 25, 2011.)
Hurry, hurry don't be late.....(White Rabbit)
"Where did that rabbit go... did you see him?" Alice said.
"Curiousier...and curiousier," said Alice.

"A little tea set for me. The March Hare and the Mad Hatter are waiting for me," stated Alice.
"Mad Hatter, whatever is that your wearing?" said Alice.
"I don't know what you mean. It is cold, so I wore my panama hat," answered The Mad Hatter.
"You have set the most lovely tea," said Alice.
"Oh, what is this?" exclaimed Alice. "It is a bottle that says, Drink Me..."
"Oh, here I go again. Things are getting fuzzy...."said Alice.
" Did you see that White Rabbit?" asked Alice. "I think he hopped this way. Now I am so small..."

Just for fun you can view my Mad Tea Party in movie form.


I will link to the Summer Blog Party.  This entry goes to:
