It's Tea Party Time! And a Give-A-Way Too!

When last we spoke might remember that the Mad Hatter left us an invitation to join in the Mad Tea Party over at A Fanciful Twist. well, finally the time has come!

It was a fair summer day when I was wondering, gazing at the trees..

Looking at the clouds..when I cam upon a tree a little different..

Special branches beckoning me to look downward to..

I saw something small and golden..on closer inspection I realized it was a magic door..A Golden Magical Door!  Ahhh..but where does it lead?

I touched the handle and the whole tree opened, welcoming me inside.  I went through the door further and further to another magical forest area and just in front  of me I saw a table filled with yummy tea goodies!

I took a closer look and everything looked so inviting..

I did not know what to try first! Of course someone so kindly made me a cup of tea...There was some much to choose from, I began with some yummy cheese filled pastery..

The berries looked so plump and juicy, I just had to indulge with some fresh whipped cream..

There were raspberry filled tarts...

Yummy chocolate treats...

A delightful candies too!

What a wonderful time!  I am so glad I ventured through the magical golden door!!!

Thanks for sharing my tea party with me!  Now for the Give-A-Way!

  16. Thanks ever so much for sharing your Mad Tea Party with me. I so enjoyed myself. The raspberry filled tarts were sooo hard to resist, that I just didn't. (I'm afraid I may have made a little piggy of myself...)and I tried not to eat too many of your delicious strawberries, so as to leave some for someone else. Anyway, if you get the chance, please come to visit me for some more Mad Tea, in the Secret Enchanted Forest at:
