Mad Tea Party 2012

Welcome Back
Thought I would wait for something extra special to accompany my reappearance to blogging
and as much as I tried to not be involved with 'The Mad Tea Party' over at 'A Fanciful Twist', I just couldn't do it, so here I am xxx
I LOVE this party so much Vanessa xxx

A Fairy Tea Party Tale

There was once a girl who spent every moment she could in the forest, talking to the trees, listening to their songs in the breeze, forever searching for something....

 hearing laughter and bells and songs, she never understood how she could be wrong,
 surely someone is following me, she searched on and on but with nothing to see....

one day she stumbled on a tiny hole in the ground with what looked like a mail box, just sitting around...and there was mail in it?....
she pulled out the mail, so tiny so sweet...
does someone live here, with the tiniest feet?

what kind of person received mail so small.....
if they actually were even a person at all


there were 3 tiny letters and the girl opened one
 it was an invite to a party, today, the words sung
she knew the place well, she had been there before
she longed to hear the little songs more

she crept to the clearing and could not believe her eyes,
 peeking around, what an amazing surprise!

there sure was a party, but no body was there
she was sure she was quiet, did she give them a scare?

the girl crouched down, and looked at the ground
scattered with festive things all around

ever so tiny, for fairies for sure
ohh where did they go, would they come back for more?

the tables were set with food and with drink
the chairs were all pulled out, they were here dont you think?

carnival bunting tied up in the weeds
spells festive party, it says that indeed

the teapot is set with cups to enjoy
its magical rose tea, and tastes good ohh boy

dresses are waiting, please put one on
made by a fairy with flowers to adorn...

so many to choose from, which one could you pick
they all look so cute, which one gets the tick!...

feasts on all tables, flowers and wine
these fairies sure know which way to dine

flowers and seeds and nuts all a plenty
you couldnt leave here with your tummy all empty

a spot of tea for the ones who dont drink
I do love that handle, so cute dont you think?...

a festive brew for the party type folk
they fill up on mead and think everythings a joke!...

small table settings with lamps made of gold
what an amazing party with decorations to behold

the girl took a cup that was filled with a drink
what could it hurt, is it poison you think?....

she drank it all down  mmmmmm honey she said
drink too much of that and I'd be off to bed!....

She looked at the dresses, she loved the pink one
with golden roses, lining the tum

hhmm bit small I think, pity Im too big
 pity I didnt shrink when I had that swig...

time for food I think, lets give it a try
it looks very pretty but incredibly dry....

 she had just a bit, on the end of her finger
it smelt of perfume, a strong smell that did linger

she tasted the food, yes indeed it was dry
well at least she was brave and did give it a try..

a walnut with gold dust, a sight to behold
do you think its fairy dust with wishes to be sold?...

she took up the dust to make her a wish
poured all of the gold dust out of the dish...

she blew it away into the air
making a wish that the people were here...

she then heard a giggle, it came from the throne
made out of poppys..hmm she wasent alone...

although no one was there, their voices were heard
it was the king that was talking, she heard every word

"there's no need to wish us, into your sight
we are all here together watching you bite"

"eating our food, drinking our drink
wasting our fairy dust, missing the link"

"come sit by the fire, we chopped up some wood
ohh hang on your too big, over there if you would"

so the party kept going, the noise was so loud
for someone she couldnt see they were awfully proud...

they showed her around, told her who was who where
if only she could see, how frustrating and unfair...

"dont worry about it miss, there isnt a matter
do you think you could see us, if we were all fatter?"

she listened to the music and singing with glee
for music was her passion and dancing you see...

they offered her food, some more mead to drink
what did she like most, what did she think?

the fairies were aflutter, all excited and high
their first real visitor, and they didnt even try!....

the lit the fire and gathered for a song
"dont worry you know the words, you sing it all day long"

and indeed the girl did, for she heard it each day
the songs of the forest, turns out the fairies did play...

the fire was ablaze, the tents had been hiked
it looked like the fairys party well into night

the party went on and stories were shared
songs they were sung and not a fairy was bared

 as time got on, the girl had to go home
but she would come back tomorrow, she promised alone...

as the girl left, she felt light as air
had she been touch by fairy magic somehow in there?...

 her steps layed out magic, in flowers of pink
left in the path, where her footprints did sink...

she walked on...

and on.....

and on....

leaving pink and gold dust beauty everwhere she walked..

thru the woods...

back home...


to tell no one....

of what she dreamed of while she slept in the woods...

 because maybe it wasent a dream at all....

and the world really is magic

and we really are being watched everytime we think we hear a song

whispering thru the trees.... maybee its not the breeze.......


Have a cup of tea on me, sorry be we only have Decaf or  Rose Petal tea
