A Magical Tea Party




MAD TEA PARTY .....

                                              
Every year, this totally magical and tons of fun link party is held at

                   A Fanciful Twist

Not only is it a lot of fun to find photos, edit photos or just use magical words in your MAD TEA PARTY post...
it is also so much fun to see what the other players have come up with. 
                 
This beautiful lady is on her way to the UN-BIRTHDAY PARTY...
and she is searching for the RABBIT....so far, all she's discovered is
a giant, pink FLAMINGO.
"Oh, Fla....have you seen a rabbit....a rabbit that's
very late for an important date  ?"

"O, yes...but he disappeared...
gone in a flash....
down the
 RABBIT HOLE."

Could the KEY be hidden...???
Hidden in this drawer of flowers...???
We must find the key to open the door to the  MAD HATTER'S TEA PARTY.


...there's rabbits EVERYwhere...
and KEYS....

could any of these be
 THE KEY?


The key to open the door to THE UN-PARTY...???

Wait...I think I hear someone coming....and they seem to be in a hurry.....




"I'm late, I'm late....
for a VERY important date.

OOO, here he comes....
get out of his way....
he is searching for the KEY..




but WAIT......the MAD HATTER
isn't here yet...

where is he ?

He's LATE.....
we have to DRINK THE DRINK
to get small enuf to fit thru the door....
and get to the PARTY.

take a drink...

grow smaller and smaller


The tea party must begin...

serve up the cookies....

there's Strawberry
and
ORANGE......

 Bring out the tea cups....
large and small



but where IS
THE MAD HATTER
           ???
Will he be here soon...???

"When Pigs Fly"
you say...?? 



Oh, no....he WILL be here...just mark my words...


We're waiting....
we're waiting....
 lots and lots of things to eat


but, where's THE QUEEN...the QUEEN OF HEARTS


OOO, look....here she comes...

waiting waiting waiting for THE MAD HATTER.....



IS THAT HIM....???
THE MAD HATTER....???

O, no...
that's my sweetie-pie grand, BROOKS...
getting ready to come to the
 UN-BIRTHDAY TEA PARTY


(anyone out there think THE MAD HATTER looks a bit like JOHNNY DEPP...heh  heh)



NOTE !!
I am here to be WITNESS TO THE FACT that it is
GOOD FOR THE SOUL
to be GROWNUP and act SILLY sometimes
and to 
fall into fantasy 
every now and then  !!!  

THANKS so much for letting me "act out" such fun fantasies ....I had a blast playing in photo editing with all my photos....

I did all this over a 2 week period....i loved every minute of it.....

and PLEASE, if I got this classical story wrong....
bear with me...it's been a long, LONG time since I was with
ALICE IN WONDERLAND. 

 Thank you for this fun party, FANCIFUL TWIST....

XOXOXOXO,  bj

  5. Oh Yes! Oh yes! Oh yes!

    Fantasy and magical, are balm for our weary selves! Especially in the world we live in, today.

    Pretty and Faerie Land and sparkles and Sprites and Magical Imaginings and Deep Forests and lace and dried roses and twinkling lights and moon beams and sounds of the Woods and .... And anything one can imagine... Are balm for our weary selves.

    Thank you for inviting me to your delightful Mad Tea Party!!!! I'm sure you had a ball, doing all this! One thing I miss, with being on a Mac, is not finding a free/easy program, to put sparkles in my photos!!!!!!!!! Oh well, I'll just enjoy those, who can. :-)

    Party hugs,
    Tessa
    ...who is off with the Faeries...

  11. You are so clever and creative! The photos just added to the whimsy and wonder of it. Your grandson makes a terrific Mad Hatter, even better than Depp. I am glad that you are having fun! Go have some more that we may peek over your shoulder and catch some of the joy of it.
