Dreaming Madly Of Tea

Filed under: Dreams,Holiday,Nature — Laura R @ 8:57 AM

  Welcome to our small portion of the forest.

We hope to entertain you while you visit.

May I offer you a Rose?

There is Magic in the Bubbles


and wonders to behold.



We'll put fire under the kettle.

 While you wait would you like your fortune told?

 There are games to play…

Hide and Seek


Hooping Competition


Fairy Fiddle Off


We’ll perform for you as long as you applaud.

Just Sayin'


I think the tea is ready.

Stay until you are partied out.

Remember what happens after midnight!

Follow the Red Queen back to A Fanciful Twist!



  1. Fun post today.

  29. So sorry I am late
    For this important date.
    I’m still making my way down the list

    With too little time
    I’m leaving this rhyme
    For I’m adamant about wanting to persist.

    All this running about
    Has left me dry in the mouth.
    Might I have that cup of tea?

    Fairies, minstrel, hoopers and jugglers
    gypsies and scallywaggers too….
    you all are amusing to me

    Oh my, the time
    It goes so fast
    I must be on my way

    But fear not friend
    I shall return
    Please……Have a beautiful day.

  47. Oh, my, but your party is so exciting. I feel about to swoon with delight with all of the magical entertainment. Perhaps if I could just sit down in the shade for a moment, with a wee cup of tea, I shall be able to collect my thoughts and continue on.
