Open Your Heart to the Madness

'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat. 'We're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'

'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.

'You must be,' said the Cat. 'Or you wouldn't have come here.'
~Lewis Carroll

Strange happenings are afoot.

There are pixies flitting by, flowers blooming large and talking to you, girls in twirly skirts eating cupcakes and a mad hatter on a tricycle with a special invitation.

Have you ever visited the enchanted world that is A Fanciful Twist? I found Miss Vanessa in the pages of Artful Blogging magazine in the fall of 2008 and my life has been richer to have her in it {even if it is only a cyber life!}. She is an incredibly gifted artist with a kind heart and a generous soul. Her blog is one that I won't miss because the stories and pictures she posts are so achingly beautiful and fanciful, as her name implies. I have some of her art from her Etsy store and have gifted it as well. It is really very lovely. I invite you to check it out.

Each year in June Miss Vanessa hosts the Mad Tea Party. This blog hop attracts some pretty incredible people from around the world to participate, many with giveaways, but all with loads of cotton candy fun and mad hatter zaniness!
In case you didn't get your invitation dropped off by sparrow or placed on your porch by bunny, I am inviting you to come and be a part of this fun event. You can read all about it from the enchantress herself {whom I am convinced is part fairy}. If you don't feel that you can sign up to be part of the party, do make a point of hopping around and seeing all the amazing things that will be happening.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 26th!

Let me know if you will be participating in the party so that I can be sure to stop by and say hello and have a spot of tea with you. I will be hosting a giveaway on that weekend in honor of the party and would love to toast to you.

Here is my question for the day...
What would you like to see me give away for my party gift?
Do tell!

Enjoy the day!

Oh, it sounds like a lot of fun! I can't wait to visit all the enchanted tea parties!

Let's see, what to give away.......I know, a huge pile of beads! I just love beads. Or books. I just adore books. Or a piece of your beautiful jewelry--that would be awesome!
