a mad tea party

I've been patiently waiting out here.
My little teapot and I.

Ever since I first stepped into this blogging Wonderland
and stumbled upon artist Vanessa Valencia's

I was too late to join the last one
and the one before that.

So this year I waited and checked and waited
and checked some more.

Poured more cups of tea than I can remember.

Even asked LaLou if she heard any news.
'No...not yet.' She told me 48 times.

She's my neighbor's cat whose real name is Buddy I think.
But I call her LaLou because that's the sound she
makes when I talk to her. She thinks she's mine.

Finally last night through the wonders of Twitter there it was!

Excitement! Joy! Madness!

Now I must go and dust off my teapot collection.
Find old teacups I've stashed in places I can't recall.
Dig through my cupboard for fabrics and trim.
And search for my favorite pair of fuschia and teal socks.

Join me here on the said date for my contribution to the madness.
The tea party is open to everyone so get your creative thinking caps on!

Visit A Fanciful Twist for details, ideas, frolic and fun.
