Mad Tea Party Today!

It's here, it's here! The Mad Tea Party for 2016 is finally here!

Once you have had all the tea you could possibly drink here,
please visit our main hostess Vanessa at

She always has the most wonderful tea parties!
That's because she's perfectly mad!
Aren't we all???

I'm leaving all the "fancies and pretties" to Vanessa,
 because I am so happy to say
that all kinds of celebrities are visiting my party today.
It seems everyone who's
anyone loves tea!
Shall we see who has arrived?
Just go in through the door!

Well, yes, it is rather grand, isn't it?!
Shall we mingle?
Oh look. It's Sherlock! I believe he visited last year, too.

His sidekick, Watson, told me that they're both quite besotted with drinking tea.

I do so hope they save enough for the others!

I'm sure Grandmama will make them behave.
Please do help yourself to the deserts.
Don't be bashful! We're all mad here!

 Oh my! We have so many British visitors today!

Wow! Three Doctors!
I wonder where they parked their Tardises? 
(Or would that be Tardis'? I'm really not sure!)
I just hope no one mistakes them for water closets!
I wonder if that's where Lady June
and the Queen of Tarts are hiding?
Maybe Betty and Victor, too.
They've never missed one of my parties!!!
What's up with that?
We simply can't miss out on those lemon tarts!
Lady June always teaches us the latest dances, too!

If I'm not mistaken, that's Helena Bonham Carter!
(Please excuse all the exclamation points.
I get quite excited on Mad Tea Party Day!)

With all the tea everyone is drinking, I better make several more pots!

Oh my. When did Moriarity arrive?
I hope the boys all behave themselves!

It appears Sherlock is drinking so much tea he hasn't even noticed who else is here.

I better tell the bouncer to keep an eye on them anyway.

I should have known! He's drinking tea, too.
I don't know about you, but I'm ready for some macarons to eat with my tea.

Okay. I do have a few "pretties" here. :-)

Oh oh. Did someone slip something into the tea?

I guess that explains it. He isn't even bothering with the tea!
I think he better eat something!

Aren't those strawberries perfect for our Mad Tea Party?

Okay. It may be time to end this party. I'm starting to see frogs!

Yep. It's time. Sherlock has reached his limit!
I hope you've had a wonderfully mad time!

Please remember to visit
Vanessa will have links to all of the other parties you can visit in blogland.

Oh. Just in case, before you go,
 the restroom is the first door down the hall on the right.
We did drink a lot tea.
I hope there isn't any line!

Wait a minute! Do you hear that sound?
It's coming over by the Doctors' Tardises. (Or Tardis'. I still don't know.)

Marguerite? Woops, she's the Queen of Tarts
on Mad Tea Party Day.
Lady June? Victor and Betty?
Are you inside the Tardis? How did you get in there?
Where did you find a key?
You really must come out! The Doctors Who are ready to leave!
I wonder why the doctors aren't just clicking their fingers to open the doors?
Maybe all that tea is affecting their interglacticness.

I am so sorry. You don't need to wait around. I'll get this straightened out somehow.
Good bye until next year!


  1. Darling Bill,
    I would hate to miss one of your parties....thank you for the invite...and you have the most delicious macarons!!It is certainly worth coming across the pond for!!
    I loved meeting all your Doctor guests this year and I must admit to hitting it off with one of them!! I am not saying who.....
