TEA PARTY !
I have looked forward to this day..... Don't you know ? Today is the "Mad Hatter Tea Party", hosted by the lovely Vanessa at , A Fanciful Twist. Vanessa is a very talented artist and I have always enjoyed visiting her blog. The art she creates becomes part of her enchanting world & life. So much fun. This is my first blogland tea party. So, I wanted to put my best foot forward. So, Welcome to the Party !
My favorite part of any party, is decorating the table. And, since there are going to be so many artists at this tea party, I knew I wanted to use one of my own pieces of pottery for the center piece. My choices were. This coil built pot, I love it.. Please click the picture, for a close up.
these pots are so pretty close up .But it is very tall. ( i'm not sure how or why it stands so well), maybe if I had a really large table. Then there is this coil pot. This pot is one of my faves, But ...
Too Big. Then, this one. The right size. But, I chose this creamy white coil built pot. Then I ran outside & picked my flowers. Roses, hydrangeas and dusty miller. Very pretty!
So, off to the kitchen to make my scones. We made orange, rosemary scones. Then Hannah, said she preferred savory,"well then", says I, so we made our cheese scones. Yummy.
As we worked we added things to our table. Mr. Frog was invited, as were the little gnomes, who usually sit in my kitchen window. A little this & a bit of that ... Oh, almost forgot, my tea pot. I collect them. You have seen my "Little Red Riding Hood" tea pot. (in March posts) This one has mushrooms on top, and you know how Ms. V. feels about pretty little mushrooms.
O.K. we are ready. So, Please have a scone & a "cuppa". And, finally a picture of me dancing around in my red flannel nighty ,( something I still enjoy doing) my "Little Granny Fields" made it for me.
She made one for my big sister ... And one for our dolls too. I loved this nighty. She was my Great Granny.
Thank You for coming, I have enjoyed this so much. Amy
