A Mad Hatter's Tea....from a Fanciful Twist!

So sometimes I like to browse other blogs. And today- is an online tea party that happens every year at the A Fanciful Twist blog. Vanessa hosts this every year about the same time. Last year I missed out on it, but was determined to do it this year- and what better way to celebrate the summer than a thoroughly 'mad' tea party. Alice is my favorite..the concept is you link back to the Fanciful Twist, who has a whole long list of people having their own tea parties, and you 'tea party hop' from blog to blog....quite a fanciful thing to do!
Of course my dolls love to party...and the Hatter is no exception. Let's see what he has cooked up today! Of course, we will have to drink some of that shrinking potion to fit into these tiny rooms.....or did Alice drink it all??
What's this? a house in a teacup?? with birds and trees? and who is that having tea?

It looks like the Hatter and Doormouse are having their own tea! But where is Alice??
I have no idea where she is-- but she is late! replies the Hatter testily...........

Doormouse is of the opinion they have the 'Wrong' Alice in any case...............

Poor Poor Alice...late to a tea party and has outgrown her clothes, and grown so big she's taller than hatter! Not a very pleasant way to arrive at a tea party!
But Hatter & Doormouse pay no attention, greedily slurping tea! It looks like Alice has ate that cake that makes you grow, but has no shrinking potion to fit!

I must say, Hatter is not very good at giving directions. He led us on a long tiresome walk before giving us some tea...

Who is that? A VERY large cat, watching from afar................

Could it be? It must be Cheshire....who will lead the way....and will take us as far as the March Hare..
But of course, if you do not know where you're going, it doesn't really matter where you end up!
Cheshire grins....then leads the way..........

Alice still needs some of the potion to make her smaller, as she is Um, huge!

With a small little gulp from the bottle she gets smaller and smaller, but alas, her head is still HUGE, but she fits into the tearoom! That Hatter!

Now Alice's head is huge, but the Cheshire is tiny and small! But this is a very very 'mad' tea party isn't it?
And wubba chickens! in her teacup! Alice doesn't like going about with 'mad' people...
But why are the chickens in my teacup?? 'Because they do have to lay their eggs you know,' replies the Hatter. 'But in my teacup? that's a very mad thing to do!" 
"Everyone here is all a little mad" replied the Hatter.

"what is the difference between a raven and a writing desk?" asks the Hatter..
I think Alice , like me, thinks of that as a loaded question and stares at the Hatter trying to be polite and think of an answer................
I hope you have enjoyed the Mad Hatter's tea and visiting my blog and having tea with the Hatter, Doormouse, Alice & I in miniature......
Thank you for visiting and having tea with us!!!!!~Lisa
