Mad Tea Party 2012 and a giveaway

Hello! Hello! I see you are all here. It's time for the Mad Tea Party - 2012. This fantastic fete is hosted by the lovely Miss Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist and I am just one of many taking part in this magical event to celebrate all things Alice. I hope that you'll take some time to visit all the other party pals who have created magical posts just for you. Just click on to 'A Fanciful Twist' which is highlighted above and you will be directed to a list of players. There you just click away to your heart's content. Believe me, this is eye candy galore. See you there!!
In honour of this whacky mad fun, I've made a brooch to give away to one player who has left a comment on this post. I'll be drawing from a hat (a mad hatter's hat) next Saturday. The brooch is painted on to primed canvas and edged in crochet cotton. I'll be attaching the clasp at the back, but for this photo I've only the front shot for you.
My tea party this year is all about the mushroom. I'm baking a mushroom quiche with special mushrooms from the fairy forest. And I'll be putting the tea on shortly so if you want to just come on over, it'll be ready for you when you arrive. The table is set with white table linens and shined up old silver. Fine bone china has been cleaned to look like new. I know you will enjoy your quiche made of these...
Thanks for dropping in everyone! See you again soon, I hope, *smiles* Norma
