A MAD Tennessee Tea Party


Hello to all of you Mad Tea Party peeps, my name is Sonya, welcome to my little blog spot on the WWW ... well I got a little tip from one of my FLYn friends Kathryn that there was a party going on and a Mad Tea Party at that, so what am I to do, but request a last minute invite from the O so famous Vanessa Valencia, so I went for a unannounced visit to her most beautiful and delightful space, I didn't get it, don't get it right now, but I bet I will, cause there on a ton of peeps out there who do. It is about 6AM or so here in Tennessee (US) and I'm waiting for the sun, so I can snap a quick pic of my Tea Party Table and I'm thinking of making cookies ... WOW!. Maybe you can do a Tea Party for two ... but a Mad Tea Party 4 ONE was just as FUN!

O so EASY fruit TEA
1 frozen can of pineapple/orange juice
2 quarts of brewed tea
1 cup sugar or sugar to taste
Mix in gallon pitcher
add ice and ENJOY!


Mad Tea Party 4 ONE was just as FUN! So I decided to mix it up a bit ... plastic goes so well with fine china.


Plastic goes so well with fine china, and until today ... the china tea cup has never seen tea


I'm gonna leave it out all day, Thanks to Vanessa 4 this chance to play ...


How do you approach a random tea party in the early morning or the middle of the day ...


with much quiet caution ... I would say ...


This was so much fun ... but I'm afraid ... I must run 


looking forward to my cup of Tea

Blogging Revelations - A Kelly Rae Roberts E-Book reader Confession

... re posted from - 1/10/11 My very first private e-class was Kelly's and it was awesome! I learned so very, very much. But some things are never in a book, never written down. In her e-class/book Kelly stresses the importance of blogging in so many ways. Blogging was the first item of discussion in class. Blogging is the first chapter of her e-book.  Blogging ,  blogging ,  blogging . I've been a loyal follower of Kelly's &  Anna 's  for years now. Yet I'm not on any of their list. I've searched through their archives for the secrets to their success and found them on more than one occasion. I'm a speed reader. I read super more then the average person in one day. I love books! I love information & like Reed on Criminal Minds, I love to share tidbits of what seams to be the most unrelated information that I've gathered. When my Daddy, would say something is very important. I listened, then acted on his prompt. Liste
