On a Summer porch so very early in the morning, A Fanciful Twist Tea Party has arrived to my delight...


My lids flutter. I am in a dream, am I not? Who wakes after a Summer sleep on the porch to such a tea? Peculiar. My movement under the covers threatens to shift the faery tea delights before me, so I let the stillness of morn and the birdsong fill my senses...

Curiouser and Curiouser...

I am invited to nibble by the play of light and mist on my cheeks. They have voices today, somehow.


They whisper of faeryland.

They whisper of tea.




They whisper of living in the bouquet of life and art and friendship.

With frosting on my lips and faery dreams in my mind, I sip my tea.






It is perfect raspberry lemon of my own creation in my dear Grandma's wedding china cup. I know it well. As I sip the last, the bottom of the cup has a message from my guides.
"Live in the bouquet of life...
Love deeply, know creation, create joy, spread laughter, draw your heart, never pass up a chance to be sweet, and get your hopes up for that is where they float best."

I now live in the faerytale. I float in the scent of goodness and light. I know that my path is wondrous and right. Thank-you for taking tea with me on this sunlit porch. Thank-you dear Vanessa Valencia for sending the faeries my way so that I may enjoy my journey all the more and visit so many artists and friends and so that I may guide them with your Mad Tea Party, to my home in the flowers.

Thanks ever so much for having me over for Mad Tea. I so enjoyed myself. I loved your beautiful glass wear and delightful cupcakes. They were almost too pretty to eat...but I'm afraid that didn't stop me from making a little piggy of myself and eating too many. Anyway, if you get the chance, please come and visit me for some more Mad Tea, in the Secret Enchanted Forest at:
