Mad Tea Party and Give-a-ways

"There was a table set out under a tree in front of the house, and the March Hare and the Hatter were having tea at it: ..........

a Dormouse was sitting between them, fast asleep, .........

and the other two were using it as a cushion, ..........

resting their elbows on it, ..........

and talking over its head." -----Lewis Carroll

Carol and Elizabeth invite you to join us for tea.

Just follow us

We'll race you there!

Blakie wants to come also.
I told him he could, since he wore his tea-party hat.
However, I am not sure he will have any tea left.
Those birds look pretty thirsty. Eeeeeee!

"Come, we shall have some fun now!" thought Alice.

In case your tastes lean more toward iced tea than hot tea, especially during the summer, I have knitted and crocheted my little lagnaippes (give-a-ways) with that in mind--


1. an iced tea glass cozy (glass not included)

2. a coaster--in case the cozy doesn't fit your glass and...

3. a dish cloth/napkin for cleaning.

OK, OK, I'll throw in a tea bag of Organic Spring Jasmine tea for you purists.
In addition, since I couldn't stop crafting these little goodies, I made 2 sets (of 3 pcs ea) for this drawing--so there will be 2 winners of these.

The 3rd and last give-a-way will be a set of tea-themed cards and tags. The picture below shows all you will receive. Please click on the photo to see the items in detail.

The tags are also shown again below.

All those who make a comment on "this" post now until Sunday night at midnight-central time- will be entered in the drawing for the 3 give-a-ways we have shown above. We will draw the names on Monday. Please check back on Tuesday to see if you have won. If we have your e-mail, we will let you know by Tuesday also.

Thank you so much for visiting us today!
Carol and Elizabeth
