Oh, how I love a Mad Tea party,

Every girl needs a party hat, don't you agree?














Do we have any animal crackers?




Did I hear someone say .....~I'm Crackers~?!?
















OOOhhhhhh I love animal crackers.........!











And cake,ooohhh I love cake and cupcakes too...with animal crackers!!!!!!












Ohh yippeee! Cupcakes!!! I just love cupcakes!


"She's gone mad!" You say.....


I prefer the term crackers, thank you very much!.





Well , isn't that the point,


A Mad Tea Party!







~He He~

Thank you for stopping by and have a tea toteling day!

Pip Pip and Cherrio!




The blue tea you see above is compliments of

"Vanessa'a Glitter Glue Mistake!" of A Fanciful Twist

It's fabulous and so beautiful, my daughter's now want a chandelier made of it!

Please feel free to comment, I enjoy your thoughts and remedies

on my lunacy!*~~*!
