It's Time... It's Time!

It's Time for the annual Mad Tea Party! The original Mistress of Ceremony is Vanessa from

Welcome to MY Mad Tea Party!

Enjoy some tea, have some sweets, meet some new friends, lookout for the faries, and stay awhile, but watch your time!

"Begin at the beginning and go until you come to the end, then stop."

"No wonder you're late. This watch is actually two days slow."

"Oh! But it's loads of fun!"

"If you don't know where you're going, any road will lead you there and here."

"We're all mad here."

"If you look real carefully and be really quiet you may actaully see the faries."
"Read the directions and you will be directed in the right direction with is right here and there."

"Oh my ear and whiskers, it's getting late!"

"You can stay as long as you wish but make sure you lock-up when you leave, follow the White Rabbit on the way out and you'll be brought right back in."

Thank you for visiting...

Artisns Day At The Farmers Market

Each Sunday between May and October the city opens the Farmers Market to Artisns only. It's a very exciting place to be. As long as it's made and not pre manufactured and it's in good taste, you can sell it. I try to go every Sunday. There are new things to see each week. I have met some wonderful artists and have made many new friends. One of these Sundays I will be selling some of the things that I make. I will let you know when.

What Do You Do On A Rainy Day ?

What do you do on a really rainy day? You make new friends. You make fairy friends. They are so very easy to create. You need a small wooden bead, pipe cleaners or plant wire, a few tube beads, and some petals from a silk flower that you have taken apart. Fold in half a 6 1/2 inch wire, then cut a piece 2 1/2 inches long. Lay the short wire cross wise on top of the folded wire about 1/2 inch down from the bended 6 1/2 top. Fold that top bend down and and around the cross piece, bringing it back up to form the head. Now you have arms, legs and a head. Place the wooden bead where the head should go and glue it onto the wire. Now thread a tube bead through the legs and push it up as far as it can go. Then thread a flower after it and as many as you want..different colors are fun to add. Add one more tube bead to hold all the petals on, and glue it. Add embroidery floss for hair and use colored pencils for facial features. You may want to make loops for hands and feet. Now you have a fairy friend to play with on a rainy day.
