Mad Tea Party



We are so honored that you have joined Two Crazy Crafters
for a little vintage inspired madness!



There's an un-birthday party across the land today
designed to delight and amuse you.



It's our pleasure to entertain you.

Lindsey has put her skills to use and made some lovely, whimsical decorations.


A place has been set for each of you so don't be shy.


Let's follow Alice down the rabbit hole for some nonsense.


The key will unlock the magic.

The White Rabbit and the Cheshire Cat are both on hand to guide
her through this magical land.


"Follow me", says the White Rabbit!

Come this way!


Alice hopes to find her way before she's too late for Miss Vanessa's


She must not miss the muchness that she knows will enchant her there.


Now which way shall she go?


Maybe this way!


  Or maybe that!


We hope that you have enjoyed your adventure through our
Vintage Wonderland.


To thank you for attending our tea party, Lindsey has crafted this tag to give away to
one of our party attendees.  Just leave a comment on this post and you will be entered.
Winner will be announced Tuesday, June 29th!


Enjoy your day!
Twyla and Lindsey

Ok, I've seen some really great Mad Hatter tea parties in the last couple of days, but I'm sure now that THIS ONE is my favorite! I'm just so impressed by how much time it must have taken to pull it all together. And I love all of the pretty pastels that you used throughout, along with some of your cute ceramic collection Twyla. And that pink tea cozy? So Pretty!!
Happy Sunday!
