Tea Time Madness

Hello Dear let's begin the Madness, shall we?
There once was a girl who had lots of curls...she said a prayer with a blessings candle and asked for not more than she could handle.
Well along came the Hatter and sat down beside her...

and then all of a sudden...the Magic Began!
"Well Hello, said the man....Please, give me your Hand!
With that I said....where shall we go? Oh please I do want to know!
He said with a smile...after a little while, "We shall go to a Tea, A Mad Tea if you Please!"
Oh yes, I do you mean you and me?
He then said...."Yes, as a matter of fact and I shall have you back...just in time for for dinner and wine!
Ok then,  that will be fine, I said....I am ready as I shall ever be!
So, I began the adventure....
It was time!
Time to begin this Life's Adventure!

For Life is a Special Occasion...don't ya think?

It was time....time for me to do this thing...It was indeed Tea Time!

One year ago, this dream of mine, to open up a tea Shoppe, manifested itself into my reality!
I will never forget the time when it was beginning to appear that it was really going to happen and I regressed into having some insecure feelings. I said to Jimi, "I can't do this." He said, Dena, YES YOU CAN."
I am so glad that I listened to him and the voice inside that said to get out of your own way..just do it!

What a journey this has been....there are many emotional and physical connections associated in this ride. Besides deciding to and becoming a Mother, this is one of the Hardest things I have ever done in my life thus far, but I am so Glad that I did. No regrets....Life is a Journey in which we must travel, learn and grow from.
It is all about taking what you find to be Impossible and making it possible.

Thank you Jimi and all of YOU for your love and support.

It is my true desire to continue this journey, hoping to Inspire others to follow their dreams no matter how big or small.
As I have always said, "All things are possible with Love."
Please Join me for Tea on Facebook  I would Love it if you "Liked" our page so that you don't miss a single Tea Time Event!
at The Teacup and Grounds!

Thank you for joining me here today and coming along for the ride.

It is very much appreciated!!!

So, back to the Hatter all and things that matter....this was not a dream but something that I had totally foreseen.  My future in fact is very much in tact....The Hatter, he delivered, his promise was not withered.
He got me back in time for Dinner and Wine.
Although you know, this is how the story goes.....It is always,

plenty of it for both YOU and ME!

Just a reminder to stop by and Visit Miss Vanessa at for more Tea Time Goodness!!

Much Love,
