into the woods

To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is
the most perfect refreshment. ~Jane Austen

Wouldn't it be lovely to run away into the woods today?
To an autumn woodland tucked away at the most magical edges
of our daydreams. And down the path what would we find...
a tea party of course! Where sunflowers grow as tall
as the tallest trees and pumpkins roll around a carpet of  crunchy
maple leaves like bright orange bowling balls!

I found this wonderful autumn woodland wallpaper freebie and
I thought wouldn't it be absolutely splendid to have a tea party there?
So I brought my Mad Tea Party table over and I wanted to
invite all of you lovely friends for an afternoon tea today.

We all need a little break at the end of this mad week, don't you
think? We can use the pumpkins for chairs or sit right on
this wonderful carpet of leaves. Of course the cupcakes would
be pumpkin spice and our tea would have a hint of golden apple cider.

Afterwards we could take our shoes off and race through the leaves,
all the way to the end of that path into the deepest heart of the woods.

What do you think we would find down there?

Oh if you like my forest collage you're more than welcome to use it on your desktop.
And here is a super magical Halloween blog I just found.

Have a wonderful weekend.

So beautiful!!!! I am happily going to use this as my desktop background. Thanks very much!!! You did a wonderful job. And YES - it would be lovely to go traipsing through the woods finding whatever it is we might find...pixies, magic toadstools, laughing deer, chatty foxes. :) Have a great weekend! Theresa

Hello dearest Anna,

The tea is just lovely and I love the way the leaves feel and sound as they crunch and rustle below my bare feet. You have the most wonderful artwork. I just want to run away into the pictures.
....And you know how much I love tea parties.
What a wonderfully enchanted one.
It inspires me to set up a forest fall tea party setting back in the woods behind the house. Maybe light the way with candles.
Spells and Wishes,
Wendy from Wonderland
