Time for tea!

93 degrees here and this old bear needed some shade.
His name is Paul.
And that's a whole other story!


It was a grand day!!!!!!
I spy "somebody's " friend!
Somebody sneaked in here!
Goldie's friend Amanda was a babysitter for the little ones at story time!
Tea for two
Look who came by!
Martha had time to come by for a minute after shopping!
These guys had fun recalling old hunting days in the wild!!!!

Bears in chairs
The boys in the band!
Conga line!
da-da-da-da-da......DA



I put my irish bears in front of a painting of mine
"County Clare"
so they would feel at home!

Sister Mary Margaret makes bad bart sit in the chair for a "time-out"!
But Sister Cecelia always let the bears help her in the garden!
Memories! My mom's tea set. I used to be able to use this tea set under close supervision and when I was sick, my mom would bring me tea and toast on this china. I actually remember!
These guys decided to come in their boat from the San Francisco Bay(somebody here must have text messaged them while I wasn't looking) and when they reached land, I had "wheely bear" bring them up to the house!
Oh my, there's a party goin on!
Party goers are beginning to gather!!!!
"Buggy" gets a ride!!!!




Mad hatter!!!!
We are just getting started!
The bears are getting dressed (or not) and spiffying themselves up!
Goldilocks will be there too and her friend Amanda, who is not the least bit afraid of bears!
Now If I can just find hoops and yoyo, those rascals are hiding!
Then the tea party can begin!!!!!
Be sure and click the link below and enjoy a magical day!!!!!

Terri said...

OH My Peggy! This is all so adorable! I just love your creativity and where you put your energy!

Chickenbells said...

Bears are simply fantastic to have at Tea Parties aren't they? They are always so polite...much more when they're out in the forest. It must be the cupcakes, don't you think?

Sugar and Spice Art Confections said...

Cute Scenarios Peggy! Thank you for inviting me to look!

Chrisy said...

What an eclectic group of guests you have...the nun is my fav! Thank you so much for having me at your whimsical place. Come on over to my party - if you haven't quietly crept in already....

Wait, Pee Wee Herman came to your tee party? So, what's the word of the day??? "tea party"!!! Ayyyyy!

Shell said...

A sweet tea party filled with delightful bears. I had a couple of special bears at mine. too.

Terri Kahrs said...

I'm SOoooo happy that I stopped by again! I would've missed so much! You certainly host a wonderfully enchanted tea party! All of the bears certainly looked happy (except for those being disciplined by the Nuns!) LOL A great time was had by ALL! Hugs, Terri xoxo

Sorry I'm late, I've just escaped my own mad party.

How enchanting a stuffy teddy tea party. I must have them over to have tea with my girls. So magical.

Thanks for inviting me to you lovely tea party Peggy.
You know I love all of your bear friends but I have a soft spot for Old Bear!
Love,

What fun you had setting this up. I can feel the excitement. As for me, I'm having a quiet little tea with my friends because I wasn't invited to your party. You can see mine at janenesartsngardens.blogspot.com

Jen said...

*gasp* I love your Pee Wee doll! It is so curious that these Mad Tea Parties are still going strong! I've yet to clean mine up, so please feel free to follow me back down the rabbit hole to Haute Whimsy before life goes back to simply mundane!
