Where's Alice?

It's the day of Vanessa's Fanciful Twist Tea Party!!
Tea party plans had been made.
Max the Bunny and I went on a search for Alice.

Max asked the stone white rabbit
on the front porch if he'd seen Alice.
He just remained stoic.
And silent.
Max thinks he's a snob.


She doesn't appear to be in this pot
said Max.
Of course not, I said.
That would just be ridiculous.
And besides.
Alice in pot sounds so 70's.



Do you think she's in chains somewhere?
said Max.

Har-de-har-har.
Alice in Chains.
Very funny, Max.
Says I.


I'll look in here.
PEE-U
It smells awful.


Boy-oh-boy.
If she's in here she's sure gonna smell ripe.


That's not a very nice thing to say, Max.


What about here?  At least she won't stink
 if she's been in the flowers,
said Max.

Keen insight, Max
says I.


You gonna help 
or are you just going to stand there
making astute observations?


Let's ask the Hedgehogs.
Say, you fellows seen Alice?
.......
No. huh?
Well, you keep munching on those bugs 
and thanks for the offer but we've already eaten.
ewwww....
C'mon Max.
Let's get out of here.


Excuse me.
Have you seen Alice?
No.
Well, you certainly are invited to the party anyway.
Just follow us.


Howdy-Do Mr. Cheshire Cat.
Want to join the


WHOA
Where'd he GO?!
That's creepy.


Well, let's get this party started.
Alice or no Alice.


Out of the cup, Max.

And where was Alice after all of that?
Why in Paris, of course.
She went to see the Eiffel Tower.

And bring back macarons!



For reading all the way through
I'm having a give-away.
I'll pick a winner
for this necklace:
Alice in Wonderland's Cheshire Cat - We're ALL Mad with  Vintage Teapot Charm

One week from today
July 2!

Am I entirely mad?
I'm afraid so.
You are entirely bonkers.
But, I'll tell you a story.
All the best people are.

Robin said...

So sorry I am late
For this important date.
But you're the seventh stop on my list

With too little time
I'm leaving this rhyme
For I'm adamant about wanting to persist.

All this running about
Has left me dry in the mouth.
Might I have a cup of tea


Those delicious macaroons
And your lovely necklace
Are so tempting to me

Oh my, the time
It goes so fast
I must be on my way

But fear not friend
I shall return
Please……Have a beautiful day.

Oh! How delightful the tea party was to attend. I do so love Max helping you about here and there to find Alice.She has traveled to a wonderful place to pick up macaroons for I hear Paris has the most wonderful Patisserie.
