"But rabbit." exclaimed Katey Alice, "Why can't we open the door?" The White Rabbit explained to her that only the Mad Hatter would be able to open the door for her. "Where do I find Him?" She asked. He told her to go sit on the bench in the forest garden and close her eyes until she heard his mad and wonderfully magical music. Then open her eyes and he would appear.
She hadn't been there but a few moments, when beautifully strange and wonderful music filled the air. She opened her eyes and there he was sitting across from her! His music was so magical and she listened for some time before she worked up the courage to ask him the question she had searched him out for.
"Mr. Hatter" she began, " my name is Katey Alice and I have been invited to Miss Vanessa's Tea Party and I need you to help me open the door." "I know who you are." he told her. "Miss Vanessa has sent me to escort you to her Party. It is a wonderful party that happens only once a year. Come with me and I will show you the way."
He took her by the hand and led her back the same path that she walked with Rabbit. When they reached the party door it opened easily and let them in.
There inside sat Rabbit already at the table hiding behind a book. "Again Rabbit! You pop up at all the right places." She laughed.
The Mad Hatter , behind a book of his own exclaimed, "Well are we going to visit or help ourselves to all this deliciousness?"
Every bite better than the last.
After tasting everything, and feeling quite full, the Mad Hatter proposed a toast to their fabulous hostess. "To the lovely Miss Vanessa for such an amazing feast. Every year gets better and better." he exclaimed with a sly smile on his face. "Till next year, Miss Katey Alice."
And in the blink of an eye he vanished! Miss Katey Alice knew that she would have to wait till next year to do it all again.
A huge thank you to Miss Vanessa of "A Fanciful Twist" for the chance to be part of her Mad Tea Party. I have learned so many new ways to enhance my photos thanks to this wonderful project. I have also gained a few new obsessions! I can not tell you how much fun this was, for me as well as my grand children and the wonderful Miss Karen.
