A Very Merry Unbirthday to You

Image and video hosting by TinyPic It has come to my attention that some of you have a few concerns about my mental health since Ava blew my cover and outed me yesterday. All I can say is don't believe EVERYTHING Ava wrote about me on Wednesday... Yes, I was in the woods in my nightie, but I Was NOT lurking, thank you very much. I was just getting ready for our Progressive Mad Tea Party Saturday. My mother used to call this kind of thing a "creative fit." (she totally got me.) I simply wanted to take some pictures before the sun got too high and cast a shadow, so I was in a hurry and didn't have time to put on more formal attire. That's all. Makes perfect sense to me. We plan to start here early Saturday morning in our garden with an UNbirthday Party and move on to several other stops along the way for refreshments, winding up at The Mad Tea party over at Vanessa's Fanciful Twist. Aaanyhooo...we've been lucky this week; we've had several sudden rainshowers, so the grass is green and sparkling; Mr. Alberta's been busy with his weedeater and lawnmower, and Rosie, Ava's elderly but valiant Golden Retriever, has kept the deer from grazing on the flowerbeds like those all-you-can-eat salad bars... The bumblebees are buzzing and the hummingbirds are humming. One day to go, and there will be lemon bars and blueberry trifle and strawberries dipped in chocolate and tea, lots and lots of sweet,lemony tea. So join us, won't you, and I promise NOT to wear my nightgown!

GREAT idea!!! love your card!

Faye said...

Hilarious! Great card. The unbirthday sounds like a fine idea! Can I borrow Ava's elderly golden retriever to keep the deer out of my flowers (aka deer salad bar!)? Since I lost my lab the deer have gotten quite brave.

Janet said...

LOVE this idea! But I think we should be able to come in our nighties (pj's in my case) if we want! Afterall it's just us girls!

Laura said...

With no uncertainty your uncommon unbirthday party will undoubtedly be an unfeigning event! What an uncanny unbridled undertaking not to be undone!

I'd stop by even if you DID wear you nightie!! Love all the color and pop on your blog. I'm a non-color girl so I can come here for my 'fix'!

Ava said...

FYI,Alberta and I went shopping yesterday and I dissuaded her from buying a Betsy Johnson nightgown because it was completely sheer--just looking out for sis and easily-shocked possums.

Although NOT a retraction, Alberta may have been cavorting instead of lurking. I blame the summer solstice.

Anyone is welcome to borrow Rosie as long as they bring her back and mind the poor baby's arthritic hip.

Jean said...

Sound absolutely delightful! I would be honored to attend....as I'm sure all the BEST people will be there..

Dapoppins said...

Oh, but you could wear your nightgown, if you wanted!

Sounds wonderful, I can't wait to see what you come up with.

And I love the card!

oh this is so colorful and kool ! I love it.

And Happy Unbirthday

you mean..wandering the woods in your nightie can be misconstrued as a mental issue ?

Nahhh, no worries with me ! Perfectly normal. Whats more comfy that a nighty ?

Such a fun and creative invitation. And being out in the woods in your nightie sounds logical to me.
