In Honor of The 2013 Mad Tea Party ~

First and foremost...

Heartfelt thanks go out to the lovely and amazing Vanessa Valencia of A Fanciful Twist for creating and breathing life into this yearly party.  The heart and soul that she shares with us is unending and I am ever so grateful for her. 



So....

A lovely day upon us,
A party full of cheer.


With lots of tea (or spirits),


And a tiny little deer (can you see the deer?)


You see, I prepared my tea cups, 


and baked some cakes...


and a pie...



I even sent my green balloon adrift into the sky.


The guests have been invited,

Alice is on her way.


The children, in their finest,

are scheduled to arrive today.




Imagine my excitement,


When I heard the greatest news.

The March Hare will be joining us,
and bringing his brother, too.


Please, won't you join us,
in this glorious day of Tea?


Rest assured we're all mad here,
and crazy as can be!

Please note:  In honor of Vanessa's amazing Mad Tea Party, I am offering 40% off every single item in my Etsy Shop that depicts a rabbit.  (Believe me, there are a lot of rabbits in my shop)!!!  This includes prints and originals.

Simply use coupon code MADTEAPARTY at check out to receive your 40% savings.  ♥♥

P.S.  Just so you know...I actually drink coffee more often than tea.  Although I LOVE tea, especially mint tea.  I am a drinker of coffee...in a Jack O'Lantern cup.

Lovely party, I LOVE that image of the little girl, in the lace dress with her cuppa tea. Precious! And I adore the fact that you sip your coffee out of a jack-o lantern cup! A girl after my own heart. That's my favorite time of the year! Cant wait to check out your etsy shop and see all your amazing artsies too!
Hope you stop by for my party too.

What a lovely party! I really enjoyed the artwork and if I can tell you a secret... I'm a coffee drinker as well. And even more fabulous a secret? My favorite year round mug is also a jack-o-lantern! I won't tell if you won't. ;-)

My party is still going, if you'd like to pop by:

DogsMom said...

I am a cocoa drinker myself, but in a great jack-o-lantern cup everything tastes magical!

Laura Irrgang said...

You made it to the party after all! I have a really similar jack o lantern mug. And pumpkin ones, too.
I'm also a coffee gal, but I won't turn down tea. I always think they look so intriguing at places like Whole Foods/Central Market...those stacks and stacks of tea choices.
