a mad tea party


It's another double party Saturday here at Frosted Petunias! Happy Pink Saturday to all my pink friends and a Mad Tea Party welcome to everyone else as well.

Thank you to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting Pink Saturday and to Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist who is hosting her 3rd Annual Mad Tea  Party.


Make sure to hop back over to their places for more pink and tea party madness.

You'll find a touch of pink here and lots more at the party if you decide to follow me through this Wonderland door. But first we need a most special set of keys.

 

 
I saw it this morning. Hanging on one of my trees. Have you seen it? It has a striped cotton candy pink ribbon which came all the way from Wonderland you see.

 

 
Ah.... there they are!! Are you ready?




 
It's time for a Mad TeaParty! Grab the keys! 

(little hint: there might be fairy music at the party so turn your volume on
just a smidge to listen...or not if you prefer a quieter soiree!)

I cannot tell you how much I LOVED your Mad TEA PARTY page. I am a teacher, and I used the same theme in my classroom this year. I adored all of your photographs and the work that went into them. Absolutely phenomenal!
