So, when I found out about the fantastic Mad Tea Party being hosted over at A Fanciful Twist, I knew it would be a perfect thing to become a part of. Why, you might ask? Well, for several reasons. First, on the very day that it starts, we had already planned our annual Big Backyard Bash! And believe me, do we ever have some whimsical, fae, phantasmagorical, mad-in-a-good-way friends! Second, I have just been researching in my journals in order to write the preface to my book, Starcat’s Corner: Essays on Pagan Living (you just knew I was going to sneak in another book reference, didn’t you?). The time I was diving into was when I went to Vermont Witch Camp in 2005, and the theme was….drumroll please…Through the Looking Glass! So obviously it was all cosmically meant to be! So I present to you, for your viewing pleasure (whether or not you made it here in person)….Our Fun Feline Fae Tea Party!
First, we happened to drink some delicious potion…I guess that’s how it begins sometimes, right?
Here is BlackLion enjoying the Stargazer lilies that are Quester’s pride and joy:
We had some lovely fae feline folk show up for the gathering…
And even a Mad Hatter type!
Plus hoopers, dancers, and some of our musician friends.
There were people spread all through the backyard, near the fire pit, the tribe of kids playing football and having an epic battle in the field, a couple of visiting dogs, and endless dishes of delicious foods and drinks!
We even had a sighting of our friend Godzilla, though I don’t have a picture…
Here’s Dryst enjoying himself (and hamming it up):
I received some very cools gifts, even though it’s not my birthday. One had a lizard friend on it!
This fae feline version of a Mad Tea Party really rocked!
