The Mad Tea Party

When the invitation came out for Vanessa's Mad Tea Party.
I knew I had to be a part of it again. I'm happy you all could
come. A big kiss to Lady Vanessa for hosting this wonderful
magical Party again.

Welcome. I'm Shell of Swan of Dreamers. This is my Tea Party.


My old friends Johnny ,The Pirate, and his Parrot, Depp, came again
to my Tea Party. They tell the most wonderful stories especially Depp.


Here is the lovely Miss Claudie. She is always so elegant. Here
we are enjoying a wonderful chat about desserts together.


I'm dreaming about diving into that cake. Shell, focus on your guests!


My boyfriend, Sean is enjoying the party. Eating and talking with my
guests.


It's time to cut the cake. Yum!


Here's a favorite tea cup of mine representing my birth month. Doesn't that
cake look even more delish now cut?


If I can toot my own horn, this table is set pretty.


Oh, Miss Claudie liked the cupcake way too much!


Let me help you Miss Claudie.


Sharing a sweet moment with Johnny and Depp.


Miss Claudie is full.



She decides after all this excitement to take a nice nap.


Time for me to take a well needed rest. Dream what to do for the
next Mad Tea Party.


Thank you all for coming to my Tea Party. I hoped you enjoyed it.
Always know you are welcome anytime here at Swan of Dreamers.
Now, Go on and visit the other Tea Parties. There is more food, tea
and beauty to partake in.
