Mad Tea Party

Today's the day! I thought it would never get here.
The 2nd annual Mad Tea Party hosted by
Vanessa at A FANCIFUL TWIST is now underway!
I'm soooo looking forward to spending
time this weekend blog hopping the party sites.

These are non edible paper clay treats. For display only.

I wouldn't be a very good party host without
offering you some sort of refreshment.
I was up til the wee hours packaging small batches
of mini Alice treats. You can find them in my
ETSY shop by clicking HERE.

Last but not least...
A GIVEAWAY!
On Monday I will draw a name from my list of
FANTASTICAL FOLLOWERS and send them a
goodie bag of party treats. You can enter my
GIVEAWAY
by FOLLOWING this blog.
Click on FOLLOW button in the left column.

Robin said...

I'm so sorry to be so late.....so many tea parties to attend. Along the way I fell down the rabbit hole and somehow got lost at the bend.
But if I may, I would love a cup of tea. All that running around has left me so very thirsty.

I love how your paper clay treats.

Well, it has been splendid but I must be going. I have many more tea parties to go to still.

May the comming day be a beautiful one for you.
