The Mad Hatter Came to Tea


 The Mad Hatter did come for tea on a summer day.
The note you see said you would become just right if you eat the treat left by the mailbox.
So gobble we did and miniature we became, just the right size for this diminutive house.
Oh yes, the balls and toys were left on the porch for it was tea time you see.

 Enter we must for tea is waiting for that Mad Hatter and Me.
 There were cookies to delight.
Candy you see.
Bubble gum to chew.
Yes, there was hibiscus tea too.
 The hedgehog also decided to join us.
We laughed and we sipped and nibbled just so.
When we had imbibed all the tea and nibbled each cookie and candy
it was time to say goodbye.
Oh we had fun that Mad Hatter and Me,
but now it is time to pick up my ball and bat and go play.
I won't soon forget teatime with that Mad Hatter and
who knows maybe one day he will come for tea again.

For more fun, I am linking to Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist.

A clever little party. I particularly like the "Shop sweets" in their glass canisters, all happy and waiting to be chosen. A warm cup of tea you've poured for us. Thank you. And if you'd like to share a cuppa in my study, the door is always open...

Marilyn...I just read your post on my blog. I am not going to be at the show today as both of my daughters decided to help Jimmy. :-(

Jeanie said...

Just delightful! Did you have a tea guest with the initial "D" by any chance? I would have loved to have participated in this but it didn't time out right. Probably a good thing -- not that it's a competition but anything I would do would be so pale by comparison. I am simply enchanted!

Kirsten Tallman said...

So creative! I loved your tea with the hatter. So whimsical and fun.

Wonderfully creative tea party! Thank you for visiting my tea party. Oregon is so beautiful. My friend just retired and moved to Gresham to be near her son...her photos and your photos that I've been perusing on your blog have almost convinced me to move there, too.

Blessings,

Marcia Pilar said...

I simply cannot believe this is a miniature. I LOVE each and every detail. Oh, how I love Vanessa's party. So many dreamers come together, the very thing I love most about blogging.
Thank you for stopping by the "imaginatory" and you are not slow in visiting at all. It's a week long affair, and late is quite acceptable to this MAD party. ;)
Much love!
Now peeking through the rest of your pretty pages...I love inspirational quotes.
