Tea Party Day

Come to my neck of the
woods for a Mad Tea Party!





It's time for the annual Mad Tea Party, the 3rd Festivity of Madness!! Hosted by A Fanciful Twist on June 26th.

I had a shot of Chester from last summer, here in our lucious green woods, and decided he needed to come to the tea party! He wore his best tie and glasses, and is enjoying a lovely cup of tea. He needed a very long straw!


Deeper into the woods, here at Camp Schumacher, is a magical bench. You have to step over many elves and large toad stools to find it. Not everyone gets to see it, so you are very special.

Today is even more special, it has a sweet cake and a little tweety bird visiting, just in time for the Mad Tea Party.

So pull up a log, prop your feet up, and enjoy the sounds of the forest, the sweet fragrance of the evergreens, and the damp, fresh feel of the woods.

If you go to A Fanciful Twist, you can see who else is having a tea party at their place. Enjoy the wonderful journey!

Hi Riki
That picture of Chester is so funny! Is this your place in Washington that you stay at in the summer? It looks so peaceful there. The pups are all getting to be so lively now - never a dull moment in my house. I am forever following them with a mop! Not quite to that potty trained point yet! Hopefully soon!
Have a great week
Rochelle

Cindy said...

How totally cute!

julietk said...

Gorgeous Bench, so fairyland or should I say wonderland? I am trying to get through the list of Parties but am like the white Rabbit getting behind. You may wonder why then I am so far down the list it is because I started at the bottom :-D I thought I would give those at the bottom a chance to be first. You are of course invited to come to tea and join my giveaway.
