Mad Hatter Tea Party

Welcome, welcome! I am delighted you stopped by!
I've been expecting you and you and you.
Yes, yes...even YOU too!
Have a seat and sip some tea.
Grab a cupcake and come with me.


All sorts of dear friends have been stopping by.
Their modes of transportation quite sublime.

ladies in lace flying down on magic spheres.
little green circus men on the backs of bears.

darling Lily arrived all dressed in red,
riding on a bird with a rather rusty head.

plenty of tea sets were set all about...
vintage & chippy is what makes this crowd shout!

entertainment included this balancing beast...
and a ballerina who was ready to feast...


Mrs. Mad Hatter picked some bright red berries...
they are delicious with tea, but of course so are cherries!

The rest of the guests arrived in pairs.


Even Phillipe and Claudine from the village of St. Claire.


Now, I won't name names...but some sneaky fellow, (who doesn't like tea),
snuck fresh Coca-Cola in to my festivities!

oh no matter...
could I get you something
from the vegetable platter?


The party is perfect because you are here.
thank you for being a most wonderful dear!


oh dear, things are getting quite silly and fun.
I must say farewell and start to run...


the party has ended gents and gals...
until next time my dear, sweet pals!




and an extra huge HUG to our fabulous host.
Thank you Miss Vanessa...
we love you the most!!!
