Oh, no!

I had it in my head that Vanessa's (A Fanciful Twist's) Mad Tea Party 

was happening tomorrow...

And I have the little banner ~ with the date ~ here on my blog and everything...

I'm sorry, Vanessa!

Anywho, it's today; oh, WAIT ~ I am even later than I thought...it was SATURDAY!!

Good grief.

Anyway, here is my little contribution...

"Oops" is right!

I had big plans, but life got in the way a little this year...

I may have not had all the delectable sweets,

but maybe that worked out okay;

I'm on a diet...

So far, so good ~ :)

Heirloom cups and a whimsical gold-polka-dotted Johnson Brothers teapot...

Cobalt vases and bright zinnias...

Pretty festive, if I do say so myself!

I was going to pick a big vase of day lilies...

But they were just as pretty left in the garden...

The pretty tablecloth is one of Golders Dewitt's lovely fabric designs...

(Check out her current ones at Spoonflower!)

Isn't this teapot sweet?

The gold is so delicate...someone must have taken very good care of it...

I'd been waiting a year to use it at the Tea Party!

And, last but not least, Cyrus ~ as the Hatter himself.

Happy Tea Partying, everyone!

If you have a chance to stop by again in the next few days, I will be

posting some more Alice-inspired goodies!

Love,

  24. Anne, completely 'Alice' and fun! Oh, your teacup is quite inspiring...I love the shape and pictures. And the teapot is a delight, indeed with all its polka-dots. But how did you ever get Cyrus to pose like that? Your photos are wonderful.

    Back up the rabbit hole...have a wonderful day,

    Marianne xo

  26. How fun! I loved your tea party all the way through. I have to say the moment that absolutely stunned me was the portrait of Cyrus as the Hatter. Absolute genius!

    Glad I stopped by and looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    The kettle is still on over at my blog. Feel free to stop by.
