Come in, come in, it is so lovely to see you. We were hoping that you would drop in and join our little party. Now don't be shy, I will introduce to people as we go along and of course will explain everything to you. You have missed the rose painting, when we had to paint the white roses red, that was the other day and thankfully it satisfied the Queen of Hearts ( you can see the work in progress a post or so ago).
Oh look here is that grinning Cheshire cat, I had heard he was around telling everyone some odd directions and telling them we were all mad here....he might be right but don't let that unnerve you, being mad is all the rage at the moment.
As you can see the table is almost set but we appear to have a bit of a problem. During an unattended moment when we were setting up it appears our tea cups and saucers have flown out into the 'garden' behind and before we can begin our Tea Party we must find a matching cup and saucer and then find the White Rabbit ( of which I have seen more than one of today) to collect and egg and spoon...odd I know but a lot of fun...lets begin.
Oh right, this is the White Rabbit we have to find, should have known that Cheshire Cat would be around all the mischief too, oh and we must hurry...can't be late...
Looking, looking, lots of looking...
Oh look in the bush, could it be...yes I do believe it is a match!
Right we have our matching cup and saucer ( and no wild animals attacked us, I was a bit concerned around that log when we grabbed our cup). On to find the White Rabbit, I think if we just follow the crowd we will be alright.
Oh look here is Rosey, I shall introduce you in a minute...oh I don't think these ladies are carrying their tea cups and their egg and spoon in the correct manner....
aah but these girls have the idea, with their own supervisor little K. Aunty Paul is so clever she has her eyes shut too! Wow!
Now we must go carefully as I have heard that our eggs are very precious and if dropped we shall be..oooh oh oh..oh dear Miss K seems to have been unbalanced by some mischief...
Now we have everything, lets meet a few of the others.
Here is the lovely Miss K with her gorgeous Mother Val and wouldn't you know it it is Vals birthday today ( she won't tell us how old she is though), what a bonus, a birthday to celebrate as well.
This is the gorgeous Rosey who wears many hats and has two blogs i can't sew which is also what she calls herself...hmm not sure about that..and her home blog is Agapanthus and Goldsworthy . She is such a star, look what she made for us to share...oh and here are two of her gorgeous daughters as well.
Roseys Riboon sandwiches...what fun she had making these..
Are these not the sweetest little treats you ever did see? Rosey and her girls made these too, how utterly gorgeous!
They even brought some pink feathered friends with them, we won't use them as croquet sticks, they can just hang around here.
We will have to have a look at the tea table to see what there is whilst we meet the others...some are a little shy, but oh so friendly.
Please don't mind the mice, they seem to have invaded the tea party but they are very sweet really and we have lots of teapots!.
Oh and another White Rabbit wearing a heart I do believe was made by the gifted Lucy Bloom , not sure if that was how she intended it to be used but you know how White Rabbits are.
More mice, make sure you have something to eat or drink as we move along, it is a very long table and a huge party, so you may be in need of refreshment by now.
Perhaps you would like to have a game of cards, they rather on the large size though, so maybe a game of snap rather than poker.
Oh just be careful when choosing a cake..somethings are not what them seem around here.
Have a seat you must be getting tired...I am sure there is a spare chair here...
Now I shall pour you a cup of tea from my favourite teapot. Stay and chat for as long as you long as you like. Before you go though I would love to know where you are from so please leave a little comment, my visitors book for today, just let me know where you live ,...well not exactly just the country or suburb.
Off to pour some more tea, ttfn Kiss Noises Linda Lilly Cottage, Queensland Australia.
