Mad Tea Party of 2012



It's time, please don't be late..It's time for for the 2012 Mad Tea Party. Our hostess and tour guide is Miss Vanessa from Afancifultwist. Please check her sidebar for all the other parties. I know that you will have an wondrous time.


Welcome to my party.

 Enjoy some tea. We have plenty of sweet treats to eat and some new friends to meet.
 Begin at the beginning and go on until you come to the end and stop.
 If it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key, and if it makes me grow smaller, I can creep under the door, so either way  I'll get into the garden, and I don't care which happends
 There's the rabbit, I must follow him.

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date. No time to say "Hello Good by". I'm late I'm late.
There was a table set out under a tree.
 Come, we shall have some fun now.
 The Mad Hatter must be close by.

The table was a large one. There was plenty of room.
 Curiouser and curiouser
Oh, but it's loads of fun.
 It's always tea time!
 There are plenty of sweet treats to eat.
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsence. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what isn't.
 What a funny watch !
 Has the Mad Hatter been here too?
 Are you watching your time?
How about a game of croquet?

Would you like a little more tea?
 Who's been painting my roses red?
 The Queen Of Hearts, she made some tarts...all on a summer day.
 Still painting my roses red?   Off with their heads!
 You can stay as long as you wish but make sure when you leave, follow the white rabbit on the way out and you will be brought right back in, which is a crazy bad wonderful idea.

Are you ready to come back inside?
