Mad Tea Party Gifts!

If you're looking for the Mad Tea Party post, you can find it by clicking here. These are the gifts the fairies sent!

The gifts from the fairies arrived today! I'll be drawing *2* names on July 3rd to win a print and matching blank note card of one of the following images:

Through the Door


After the Tea Party



The fairies did a lovely job on them...

Here's the whole set:


Just the cards:


And just the envies:


If enough people leave comments, I might even throw in a gift of my own! A piece of jewelry? And ATC or postcard? Who knows! Anything to carry on the madness... ^o^

Why is a Raven like a Writing Desk?

'Twas brillig and the slithy toves did gyre and gimbel in the wabe.
All mimsy were the borogoves and the mome raths outgrabe.





It was tea party time and the fairies were invited!
Honeyarm, Thurible of the Sanctuary, was serving, but seemed none too pleased about it.
She didn't approve of fairies. Or of Fairy *Tea*...

And just for the record, it's sparkling cider, nothing hard!



No matter though, it was a perfect day for a tea party,
and the sun was shining brightly, as the three fairy girls sipped their *tea* in the ferny wood.


l to r: Tangle Rainbowdancer, Bramble Goblindancer, and Gossamer Silverdancer;
also known as Jo, Li, and Mi.

But then Honeyarm stopped serving them!
She left them with empty cups and craving more!
The fairy girls were most distraught!




So Bramble Goblindancer and her fairy sisters thought up a sneaky plan...
(And yes, you *must* use their FULL names each & every time or they will get angry!
And you never want to make a fairy angry!)




... to find the kitchen and serve themselves!




Bramble Goblindancer was clever...
She even managed to open the bottle with no cork screw or bottle opener!




And I was clever enough to get them to pose just once...
Although they still wouldn't show me how they fly with no wings;
They said it was just how their magic worked!




Things started getting crazy after that...
They were sitting on counter-tops and drinking far too much;
Bramble Goblindancer even started getting calls on her cup!




Then Gossamer Silverdancer decided she didn't want to share anymore,
leaving Tangle Rainbowdancer and Bramble Goblindancer with cups as empty as before,
and she drank so much, she couldn't stand up!




That was when Bramble Goblindancer said it was time to stop drinking *tea*
and time to head to the shore...
So she bid them adieu and flew off!




Tangle Rainbowdancer flew off after her,
but poor Gossamer Silverdancer had had too much tea and had to walk!
I must have been a little tipsy myself by this time... ^-^




A little splash in the cool water was just the thing to sober up Gossamer Silverdancer
(and me)!




And so the day dwindled, with much laughing and madness,
but as the fairies flew off with the setting sun, they thanked me for inviting them...




...and told me to share the gifts they left at home...
The gifts you left at home? I asked.
Yes, they'd send them along later, they said, but they were sure that we would love them!

Now you may think that you've gone mad, for how could the party be done and the sun have set when it's barely noon? Well in my world, nothing is what it is because everything is what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it isn't, and what it isn't, it is. You see?

No wonder you're late! Why, this watch is exactly two days slow.

Oh don't worry, even if you've gone completely bonkers. I'll tell you a secret.
All the best people are.



Leave a comment, here, today, for a chance to win a prize from the fairies!
I wish I knew what it was but they wouldn't say!


Edit 6/28:

Mad Tea Party!



Stay tuned, my friends...

The fairies are meeting me at the shore tomorrow for our tea party and they've told me they're bringing some extra special gifts!

Mad Tea Party!


Omigosh! Tomorrow's the day! Are you ready? I think I'm not! The fairies may bring the loveliest gifts, but they make *such* a mess! I am bracing myself...

The Mad Tea Party!

We were so busy having fun at the party yesterday that we forgot to post the pictures after we cleaned up, and we slept so late today! So without further ado, here is how our Mad Hatter Tea Party went:

Our be-hatted hosts and hostess were from the far reaches of the globe (as were many of the guests who dropped by!): Lapaki Maka Hiamoe (Paki too those who know and love him) flew in from Hawaii, Orson came south on a cruise from the North Pole, and April hails from our very own Central NY, just north of our secret party location.


Left to Right: Paki, Orson, and April

Naturally we started with tea in the garden. A delightful blend of imagination and sparkles... "Would you like a cup?" April asked everyone with a twinkle in her eye.


"The tea is dazzling!"

For Paki, who was still on Hawaiian time (five hours earlier), it was still very early and he kept falling asleep in his tea... Just like the dormouse, only everyone was kind enough to *not* dunk him in the teapot!


"Don't fall asleep yet Paki!"

After tea, the three wandered about the garden, mingling with the guests who joined us, and searching for things of beauty and magic. Orson and April found some beautiful flowers who shimmered and giggled when Orson told them how pretty they were.


Orson flirts with the flowers

But poor sleepy Paki strayed amongst the singing roses and was soon fast asleep, carried off to Wonderland by their sweet melodies.


Paki sleeps

The rest of the afternoon was spent in quiet (to not disturb Paki) and joyful conversation and consideration of the wondrous place they were, and naturally some art was made special for giving away! (I can't believe we forgot to get pictures of it!)

We had so many guests drop by that Orson, April, and Paki decided to give away TWO door prizes (dor-prizes?) instead of just the one! So they had me go to Random.org to find out who the winners are, and indeed it is a mad and magical world because the numbers chosen are the 2 in my birth date!


Screen Capture


So, my dears, Amy and Junie, please drop me an email so I know where to send your Mad Tea Party *dor-prizes*! ^-^

P.S. If you haven't already, don't forget to stop by A Fanciful Twist to see who else was having a party!



P.P.S. Because I have been surfing the parties all day, and can see there are many more to go, I have decided to draw ANOTHER winner, so more people have a chance! On Wednesday evening, July 1st Friday afternoon, July 3rd, I will choose a winner from the comments on this post to receive another door prize from our party! So be sure to leave a comment and let me know you were here! ^-^
