Mad Tea Party

Somewhere in Katlandia an entire group of characters live in a mint green house. They have been waiting since last year for another mad tea party.

The painting is so large, in fact, that it hasn’t been able to be seen until today. She’s waited and waited and waited to be introduced into the world.

I made a tea pot especially for the occasion, because I don’t have my own. (Out of gourd, of course!)

Everyone can share! I have a lovely flower tea…

How do you take yours? With Cheshire or without?

Getting here is sort of difficult. There is an enchanted forest you have to travel through, just to get to the mint green house in Katlandia.

It is dense and humid, it will *wreck* your perfectly styled hair.

Dangerous creatures lurk around every branch.

Or maybe not so dangerous, just your friendly neighborhood floating Cheshire cat head. These guys give terrible directions, and don’t care at all about the frizz situation.

You wanted to get to the Mad Tea Party you say? Eat some of this mushroom.

Yeah, I wasn’t born yesterday, buddy. Would you trust a cat with a grin like that? Oh well…

One bite can’t hurt…
Well, what do you know. The crazy cat was right.

Tea party time!

I hope you enjoyed your little stay here in Katlandia! Be sure to watch out for crazy Cheshire cats as you are traveling to other bloglands, you never know if they are going to trick ya.

Thank you Miss V for hosting such a fun event. ^_^ I love being silly.

    Hi Kat! Your party is such fun! I love your painting and your little characters. THe chesire cat is scary! Thank you for visiting my party to, it was great to meet you!
    I did add clay onto the cloth to make Alice's face-just put gesso on first then use air dry clay or paper clay(these may or may not be the same-I can't get paper clay in the UK so have tried various kinds)
    I learnt the technique in a class last year with Jane Des Rosier-Gritty Arts studios)
    I enjoyed looking throuhg your blog too on my visit. Your paintings are lovely and your little elf baby is just adorable!

    Everything was just too cute. Loved the beautiful painting and your gourd pitcher. I'm growing gourds this summer and have given me some project inspiration.

    So sorry I'm late. I just escaped from my own mad party.

    Had a truly enchanting time visiting with you. I shall be back because I find your place to be magical and restful.

  12. mythoughtsmyvoice says:

    I sure did enjoy. I also enjoyed meeting those quirky characters :-)

    Have to say, your painting, she's very beautiful and that creamer container with the purple swirls is just something.

    Your tea party was very sweet!! I loved the rest of your blog too! Your baby is very dear and I admire you for still fitting in time for your art in between caring-for-the-baby time!

    Thank you for coming and visiting my tea party too! I'm glad my choice of music caught your attention!

    Hope you have a wonderful day,

    Thanks for stopping by my tea party! Those photos you have of driving from Florida into Georgia…That's my homeland! North Florida and South Georgia….it makes me homesick!

  16. aforestfrolic says:

    A bit late, I am, you see…my clock decided to let me be…and of course I have no sense of time, as I have been partying since early 2009. Thanks for visiting our little 'Mad' Adventure though and so glad I came by to see yours too!

    Jamie :)
    p.s. I'll take mine without the Cheshire kitty, thank you…he makes me sneeze ;-)

    It is so curious that these Mad Tea Parties are still going strong! I've yet to clean mine up, so please feel free to follow me back down the rabbit hole before life goes back to mundane!

  20. Cottage Way of Life says:

    I'm late, I'm late! Still trying to make it to all the parties. Yours was wonderful. I especially like that Cheshire Cat … he looks whimsical and threatening all at the same time, in short … perfection!

  21. Robin says:

    So sorry I am late
    For this important date
    I've been making my way down the list.

    With too little time
    I've been leaving this rhyme
    For I'm adamant about wanting to persist

    I am happy to see
    That you're still here for me
    And you’re so worth the trip, I insist

    And happier still
    You're not some run of the mill
    But a delightful blogger I haven't missed.

    Hope your day has been beautiful

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
