It's Time, It's Time for my Tea Party!!!

It's time, its time for my Mad Tea Party!!!!! WELCOME.............
"Gosh, thanks for stopping by my Tea Party. I see you found the key I left at the door, so just come on in. "Oh, I do love parties and I've been looking forward to today all night, even came up with a great door prize for my guest! This is the 2nd annual Mad Tea Party hosted by Fanciful Twist. Today, we'll be visiting other hostesses blogs and see what other goodies are out there to admire, be it, written content, eye candy, art or meeting new people. We'll unlock some secrets and share some goodies, and run across some surprises on our trip around the blogosphere. "

"Everyone is here, however the Mad Hatter himself hasn't shown up just yet, but stick around, you may be able to get a glimpse at him, he may still be over at Vanessa's."

"Do come on in"............

"Let me introduce myself for those who are new. I'm Dee Gordon of Runako Designs. I make handcrafted jewelry that you can find throughout this site as well as on my jewelry site.

On my blog weekly you'll find information about my other passions that I support with my business, such as positive changes in the world, recipes, weddings, Indie crafts and so many more things you just have to know!"

"Oh, excuse my manners, did I forget, please have some Mango Tea, fresh from the kettle. Would you like cream or sugar with that?" Don't you just love this Hatters Tea Set? I found this over at Natalyasots on etsy, aren't they beautiful!!!"
"I also have a wonderful cake from Pink Cake Box, doesn't it look scrumptious?!! We'll be cutting into this later in the day as more people arrive and I can't wait!"

"Let me introduce you to a few other people....Caterpillar is here, and over to the right of the room is Queen of hearts , there's white rabbit and Jaberwok..oh look the Mad Hatter is coming up the walkway with Alice right now......How exciting is that!! Please come with me, and lets say hello!"
"Well, I'm going to greet some other guess, but please do make yourself at home, have some tea and fingerfoods, meet some new people and hang around for a while. There's rides and games outback if you get bored inside"...."When you're ready to go, please sign my guest book and I'd be delighted if you'd follow my blog as well.

I was party hopping and wanted to let you know I truly enjoyed your party. Thanks for inviting me.

dragonflydreamer said...

Your jewelry is beautiful and the mad tea set is so adorably whimsical. I've really enjoyed myself at your tea party. It's so much fun to meet new people and find that so many women (and a few men too) in Wonderland share similar interests and ideas. I will definitely be popping back by for another visit. You are in Virginia too, I believe you may be the first blogger from Virginia that I have met so far. Thanks for the mango tea and the tea cup ride was divine.
