On this lovely summer day, guess who woke up very excited?

'It is The annual Mad Tea Party day hosted by A Fanciful Twist!' said Aliénore.

(And you might now it, but Aliénore is crazy about A Fanciful Twist blog)

Panda Prince heard the news and started making plans for the day.

'You will have to help us prepare the party' they told me.
But I had to explain that I had to go to work and wouldn't have much time .

So the toys decided they would prepare everything themselves.

They wanted something like Vanessa does so beautifully.

So they took a bit of this, and a bit of that.

Their favourite cakes and their favourite decorations.

Everything out in the garden.

It was too beautiful not to go out and enjoy the sun and the flowers .
They took out some tea cups and spoons.
Sweets ...well, just one as it was big enough for all of them.

And they made a garland with some of Vanessa's lovely illustrations.

Later on , when I came back from work, this is what I found.

The dolls were all out, having tea ... a wonderful fanciful MESS!

And guess who had to tidy everything up at the end of the party?

(now you can have an idea of the size of the dolls' bedroom ;-) )

But thankfuly my little frog charming gave me a hand.


I hope you have enjoyed the dolls party. I cannot wait to stop by and say hello to you dear blog friends, old and new .
By then,
keep on dreaming!

Dearest, I visited A Fanciful Twist and I have to say my visit always leaves me in awe. Yes, awe. Sigh. So beautiful and creative and just darn wonderful. Yep. Pretty much like here at your Papillon Bleu with Aliénore. So let me get this straight everyone who did their Mad Hatter Alice in Wonderland films is on this party list? Gee how absolutely cool. I need to get more creative. Wonder if that is possible when I am endlessly surrounded by little people. Another sigh. It is so fleeting, childhood and something I dearly treasure. Guess my hours for creating shall have to wait....Blessing my creative friend...Eden

How adorable, Patricia! LOL! And I love Frog Charming. Doesn't everyone need a Frog Charming in their life? Thanks for sharing.

I participated for the first time this year, and it was fun! Of course I didn't find out about it till Thursday, so I rushed through all of my pictures and posts I was about to do and came up with something that I hope passes muster.

Loved seeing your dolls having such a wonderful frolic at their tea!

C'est une très belle et agréable tea party, si seulement j'avais pu me transformer en poupée pour y participer...
J'aime la robe d'aliénore et la guirlande avec les images.
Et oui, c'est toujours les mêmes qui rangent, heureusement tu as ta grenouille couronnée.
Grosses bises.

You and Vanessa both have a natural and charming way of making everything seem as fun as it was when we were kids~don't ever lose that!

Have a wonderful week to visit the other party goers and clean up my "fanciful mess"!
