A Late October Walk Into The Woods

Welcome and come with me for a walk in the woods.

Into the woods a scurrying  I heard.  Before I knew it a table appeared.

It was laden with teaware, a little sp00ky,  I fear!!

A part of a cookie was all that was left, but the tiny woodland creatures were enjoying that!

The tea was still warm, the teacup half full, as though someone left very swiftly I'm sure!

The wind started howling and lighting struck quick.  As fast as I could I fled from the woods!

Before I knew it I awoke from my nap.  Hoping I'd never dream again about that!!

Thank you for walking with me in the woods!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday,  Friends Sharing Tea, and Share Your Cup Thursday.

OOOH! Your tea time in the woods gave me the shivers! But it also looked like such fun! I just came inside from a quick walk down our road, which is in the woods, and we heard something rustling in the bushes. I hollered out, "who goes there?" Don't know what I would have done if something had answered....I clapped my hands and said to whatever, whomever...You get back in the woods where you belong! After we returned to the house (my big strong brave husband was with me...but you'll notice I'm the one doing all the talking...LOL), anyway, as soon as we came inside our son came driving into the yard and said, "Did you see that little bear crossing the road not far from the house?" I said...."No, but I bet that's what I just heard..."
Sad, today was the beginning of bear hunting season again here in Florida. First time in 20 years. I have a feeling this little bear is running scared. I don't blame him.
I enjoyed your tea time...sorry about running on about my experience...It's still a bit fresh on my mind! Happy Fall, sweet friend!

Very cute! It reminded me of Snow White, deep in the woods and the apple too. Love the table covering, black and purple, spOOky! Thanks for sharing such fun with us.

Ah, tea time in the woods; what a novel idea! Anytime in the woods sounds like fun to me. You did go to a lot of work on our account and thank you for it. I can just hear the crunching of the leaves under your feet as you set it all up. Thank you for sharing, Nancy, and have a lovely week, my friend.

That was such fun, Nancy, and I loved your rhyming...too cute! I giggled when I saw the owl in the tree and all your other little friends. Thanks for the Halloween teatime fun today!

Oh Nancy,
This is so cute! Love it! What wonderful props and also... what a great poet you are! It is a very pretty teacup in the midst of black and spookiness! Thank you for making me smile and sharing such fun! Happy Tea Day Dear Nancy! Karen

Hi Nancy,
Thank you for stopping by. My new party is also open to tea parties. I just thought it was a good time to change things up a bit. I have been hosting tea parties for almost six years and sometimes I was at a loss as to what to share. There have been times too when I felt my blog was getting a bit stale. I have even considered shutting down the blog for a while and taking a long sabbatical but I really didn't want to do that. So, I decided a new party which welcomes all aspects of home would be a nice change for everyone. I would be ever so happy to have you continue to link up your teas when you have the time. Enjoy your grandchildren and have a lovely day, my friend. I do appreciate your friendship.

Autumn blessings,

Such a perfect tea for today! I wish I had woods so close by! I also just had a peek at your beautiful transferware china. So beautiful for fall. Love the little china dogs too. I have mine put away and they need to come out and play!

Perfect spooky tea in the woods for fall! Could it be a haunted forest? lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Bernideen said...

I read your note and certainly understand. Life can get very hectic but should that ever change for you - would love to have you participate in my blog party. Also, I will often be doing tea postings! God Bless!
