It is a little known fact that the heady fragrance of Tuberoses

lures folks towards Rabbit Holes, and then....

Well, here you are!

  3. As always, you've created a wonderful tea party and your little bunny visitor is just too adorable! How ever did you get that fantastic photo? I'm so jealous of your Tuberoses, I love them but am too far north to keep them alive in my garden. Thanks for the beautiful photos and inspiration!
    Cheers, Sarah

  30. Love the party and the scrumptious cupcakes, but most of all your beautiful painted designs. SO cool. :)


    Side note: the fact that you had shortbread cookies made up with your work/art logo -- I think that's awesome! They are fun looking, too. Great way to get your name out there.

    I'm a day-late to the fun and just now getting around to each party, but if you haven't already, do drop by and say hi. :)
