Hello all you Mad Tea partiers!
Welcome to my little corner of Bloglandia...
I hope you enjoy your stay and come back again…real soon…AND I hope I remember to come back real soon too. Anywho, this wonderful event is hosted by the ever Delightful, Whimsical, Enchanted creature Vanessa Valencia of A Fanciful Twist. Be sure to stop by her blog (If you haven’t already) to find the list of other Mad Tea Parties going on in cyberspace.

Now onto my tale…
I awoke this morning like any other day.
Prepared my coffee and pulled open the shade. But what a strange sight did I see…there were strange goings on beneath my tree.
 So I grabbed my binoculars to get a closer peek. Surely my eyes were deceiving me. “That’s odd. Those signs weren’t there when I went to bed.” Funny how sleeplessness can mess with your head.
  So I slipped on my slippers and ran out the back door hoping to glimpse something more.
 There was this sign with nary a clue of where I should go…or what I should do.
 So I decided to follow this one.
 It led me beneath the arch of my tree where two tables had been set, apparently for tea, but where were the guests and where was the food?
Me thinks this hostess a little rude, for setting up tea beneath my tree without even thinking of inviting me.
Being groggy from my sleepless night I decided to find a place to rest my head.
  when suddenly from beneath the table appeared a pest of a guest, “there goes my rest.” So I threw her ball till she grew weary of play then she curled up at my feet to dream of her day. Finally I could get some sleep.
When I awoke beneath the shade of my tree there was sugared toast, fruit and faerie rose tea…if only I hadsomeone to share it with me.
 Now this is a curious thing to be sure!
Drink me? Do I dare? Would you? Would you? 
Eat me? Hmm…it looks like a chocolate delight.
 Well, OK, maybe I’ll have one little bite.
 So I took a bite and as soon as I did my world became blurry, distorted, and dim. I felt like I was shrinking as small as can be. Soon I would be no bigger then a leaf dangling from my tree.
 But something stirred somewhere inside, it was my trusty little puppy at my side. You see, I had been caught in a dream all the time, where nothing makes sense, and not everything rhymes.
Ok. Now be on your way to our Fanciful friendling @ a Fanciful Twist.

I could have worn I saw this party with that cute little dog, but something must have happened to my post! I'm a little punchy from party hopping and perhaps a little mad???

Happy Tea Partying to you...

Oh yeah...I can finally see this post! Wow...you put alot of work into this one. What a delightful tea party indeed. I'll take a brownie with rose tea.

We are planning on taking Lily on our next camping trip to the coast at the end of August. It's only for one night and yes we will have her on a leash...but she will probably be completely happy in our wee camper.
