Mad Tea Party Blog Hop/EDITED!

The winners of the little pincushions were Anne from alittlefurinthepaint and Diane from lavenderdreamstoo!  Thank you to all who dropped by!

Welcome to the Mad Hatter tea party blog hop!    The fabulous Ms. V at A Fanciful Twist is the hostess of this fun event.

I look forward to creating a post for this each summer but have been under the weather...that being said, I am finally feeling better!  
I still wanted to play along so decided to create a little poem in honor of the day.  Be sure to read to the end or you might miss out on something special!

Mr. Rabbit was late, he ran through here...
Alice fell in behind him, I fear!
"I'm tumbling, I'm shrinking, I'm GROWING!  OH MY!"
All of these words to my ears she did cry.

Then into the garden she clumsily landed..
And hid from the queen so she wouldn't be stranded.
She went through the garden, flower by flower...
As quick as she was, it took most of an hour!

"Where was that old rabbit?"  she said with a sigh.
Then Alice sat down and started to cry!
So tired and hungry, she wanted to rest.
Then music she heard and voices in jest!

She followed the sound, so happy and gay.
To a place with a party where music was played!
At a table she sat and was served some fine tea.
And sang a song that I'll now sing to ME!

Why do I do this? Oh wait, don't you know?  
'Tis my UNBIRTHDAY!  Why yes, it is so!
I've just a week til the actual day
But thought I'd celebrate it here today!! 

And to make it the best, I'm giving to you.
A chance to win a thing...maybe, two!
Just leave me a comment, a note, a hello.
Do it now, before you GO!



Here is a peek at what you might win...   I'll draw 2 names on July 18th (my real birthday) and each will win a little tea party favor with a pincushion.



Don't forget to leave some way for me to contact you in your comment.  

Thanks to Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist for dreaming up and hosting this fun annual event!

Ohhh aren't poems the BEST? Dr. Seuss is my hero :) but I guess the phrase that best describes me right now is White Rabbit -I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date! No time to say hello-goodbye I'm late, I'm late I'm late!!

{Sorry} :p

Hope you feel better by now - my PC was sick too, which is why I am late. Hope your recovery was less costly!!!! :0
