Do you ever feel like there's a gigantic gap between the way you're living now and the life of your dreams? Do you sometimes wish you could wave a magick wand and all of your problems would just disappear so that you could finally step into the kickass life you know you were meant to lead? I can't promise you that transformation is as easy as waving a magick wand, but I do have quite a few tricks up my sleeve and am more than happy to share them with you here. So, chin up, Gorgeous, stick around and, most importantly... BELIEVE!

THE MAD TEA PARTY : The Witch Is In...

 
It's true, you know, us witches... we are cuhraaaazy about tea.

Moroccan Mint. Mugwort. Oatstraw Infusion. Masala Chai Almond Milk Lattes. Rose Tulsi. Nettles. Earl Grey. Green. Black. White. Rooibos. Pau D'arco. Cinnamon. Turmeric. Psychedelic Shrooms. 

A cup of tea can cure just about anything : Heart-break. Headache. Tummyache. Fatigue. Nerves. Too Much Energy. Not Enough Energy. Home Sickness. Wanderlust. Jealousy. Boredom. A Cold Chill.  

Witches know this. Therefore... Tea. Tea for you. And tea for me. Mad we are for tea tea tea...

What better way could there possibly be for going mad than a tea party?


“The first time I called myself a 'Witch' was the most magical moment of my life.” -Margot Adler

TO JOURNEY FURTHER 
DOWN THE RABBiT HOLE...


Welcome to my humble abode. It is jumbled & cluttered with candles & stars, books & swirls, poppies & tarot cards...

 

 It's a little bit messy, but I like it that way. I hope you do too...


We're all mad here...


So- please, don't be shy. Make yourself at home...


Kick up your feet...


And pour yourself a healing cup of magick...


Pick a card. Any card...


Oh look! We've got an unexpected visitor!

Four-legged friends often make the best party guests. They bring the love & oodles of curiosity...

Oodles & oodles...

Curiouser & curiouser...


"Cats are amused by life and by their humans. As anyone who shares a home with a cat knows, you don't own a cat, they actually own you." -Ellen Dugan
 
And just so you know, this party's just getting started...


It's the kind of party that travels...


All over the world, from home to whimsical home, imagination to imagination, blog to blog, friend to friend, this is a party that just won't end...



Or stick around to experience this most excellent interview with the all kinds of delightful creatrix who started this whole Mad Tea Party riot to begin with...



And- THANK YOU. Thank you, my friend, for being my distinguished guest today. You're kind of a big deal... 


"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one." -C.S. Lewis

MUCH LOVE -xo

peace...

  8. Yay. Lots of fun to be had and your familiar is so sleek and pretty. I had a feline companion who was big and black and his name was Angel, although he acted like the devil. Haha. I couldn't help but love him though.

    Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day. If you have time, drop by my tea party. I always love to share tea and nibblies with new friends. :)

  10. So many teas, so little time, but time must be found for tea so I'll linger a while if I may. It's always nice to be in the company of fellow witches, a crackle shared makes the world go around after all,. Animal friends are always welcome at my little gatherings. I'd love it if you and your familiar friends had the time to visit and linger in my garden or maybe read my little Alice story.
