A Day To Remember!

We have all been invited to a very special party!

All week long I have day dreamed about what magic and fun was to come. I was bursting with ideas ... like what  would I wear, and what fantastical treats there would be?
Who would I meet, and what games might we play? Oh how I would love to dance around a Maypole in roller-skates, or play hide and seek. & NO I am not too old for such things!

Sad thing is... in my real life I am spending the day wheeling and dealing pennies to quarters at my first ever yard sale. So I can't quite wear feather boas and rhinestone earrings, can I?

But maybe this will do?

But if I could wear whatever I wanted, I would barrow this pretty pink dress!

oooh and this pretty crown! 
Made by the amazing Holly at Holly Doodle Designs.

I will be arriving in style of coarse...

oops, thats not right!

A Bit Better...

Ah, Perfection!

Why am I coming in an old '51 Chevy?
That's easy... how else would I deliver our sweet hostess her gift!?

For goodness sakes, elephants are very large things... you can't just walk them up Main!
Even if it would be a jolly good sight to see. OH NO! My husband just now informs me that an elephant wont fit in the chevy! Oh dear, now what will I do!?

Never Fear - I have a bigger yet smaller idea...
Oh yes, this is very good... I will wrap it up in some cute vintage paper.
Everyone will ooooh and aaaah at my bow making technique.
then I'll say,
"Make sure we don't open it now... it's better to wait!"

We all sit down to tea... 
laughing and singing... cherishing each sweet moment with our dearest of friends.
(The rest of days events are better told by the host herself)
Night has come... it's time to go.
 Oh NO! 
We almost forgot... first we must open the last present I brought. 
So carefully it is open... trying so hard not the mess up the bow. 
Then just for an instant the box seems to move. Our hostess peaks in side, but nothing does she see. Its gone already... oh goodness, look around quickly!

Do you see it?

Look closely!

There they are. Sweet blue fairies!
Just the perfect touch of magic to end the day...

Goodbye Everybody!
I shall see you tomorrow. Perhaps with a bit less silliness but just as much fun.

P.S. I couldn't have told my side of the story without all the wonderful people on Flickr
Thanks everyone!

Great party! I love the blue fairies; hopefully I can catch one before they all fly away!

Wow, GREAT party! Wish I'd thought of bringing an elephant - that was sheer genius.

I'm having blueberry muffins and a giveaway over at my place if you feel like visiting. I read that you have an Etsy shop - me too! I'm going there now to see if I can find you.

No offense to your dear husband, but everyone knows that elephants fit into a volkswagen. Of course, mine came in a Toyota, but our New England elephants are sticklers about saving gasoline.
