I'm late, I'm late for a very important date

A knock awoke me and I rushed to the door , just time to see a white rabbit disappear next door. He had  left a letter, an invite to a tea party, to happen right NOW. Just time to put on my Alice band and close the front door... but wait; where do I go?

Then I spyed the rabbit's foot prints leading the way.. I followed and followed down the green path , through the bushes and plants until at last they came upon a tiny blue house hidden by grass...

 ...where the mad hatter met me and said with a smile on his face "I was starting to wonder if you were not late"   

'I'm sorry, forgive me, I came in good grace  I hope this is the place?

"OH yes," said the hatter,  "but we must hurry and must have haste."  As he walked throught the small door with a big grin on his face....                    

but I can't get in ... the house is too small........

"I can fix that" he said pointing to a small bottle.... the label said drink me...  it would make me grow small.

and slowly I shrank down to the size of mouse.. and could enter the mad hatter's house will no trouble at all... "welcome" called out the guests, all ready seated, they were Acorn and her little sister Weed. Miss Oak stood at the back with a basket full of kitties...

the kettle had boiled and the faerie cups lay; waiting to be fill with rose hip tea...

Everyone had happy faces except for Rosebud who was quite upset that Willow the dog had taken her red mushroom seat... 

"Oh good you have arrived at last "said the dog.... I looked around the small living room and stared in amazement at the goodies on the table in front of me...

jellybeans and cupcakes , lemonade and rose hip tea........  too many good things to eat

toadstools and magic

mad hatter's hats so tall and so bright

the clock stuck midnight , in no time at all  

Time to go home but wait, I was still so very small .....

and with that the white rabbit appeared and handed over a cake..

 then with a twitch of his nose...
 disappeared in a cloud of faerie dust.

The cake was so pretty with blue icing words; it said so clearly in two little words... the thing I must do to get back to size ... so with a smile on my face I took a large bite..... My feet began to tingle my nose began to itch... and before I knew what had happened I was home in my bed....

I hope you had fun here and you're welcome to come back... who knows what will happen... when one day we'll go back...

but Wait don't go yet!

I have one more surprise ... for the Mad hatter left this. One of his top hats.  

to share with you...

Just leave me a comment and email to win this ... A mad hatters hat

I will pick out a name on July 1st at noon. 
Now I wish you good luck.....and I'm off to the other tea parties...won't you join me?

Update: the mad hatter is ......asleep. 

Wow sugar rush from all the goodies I've eaten and my head hurts from all the talking and laughing this weekend....and my faerie wings are worn out....... That mad hatter is such a joker and Alice the sweetest girl... the white rabbit needs a holiday away from the nasty queen and she needs.... to stop moaning about the colour of her roses and her jam tarts...

I want to send a big super sized thank you to VANESSA for hosting.... but also thank you all of YOU for popping over to see me and leaving such nice comments......Thanks to Laura at the land of Nod for her images...Terri for her tutorial on faeries houses... hugs wendy....

Robin said...

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 a cup of tea?

Your cupcakes
And your jellybeans
They are so tempting 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.
