I love them all, cork dolls - how creative!

thethinkingwoman said...

Such lovely ladies! I know a charming sheep named Baab who is at the party without a dance partner. Would one of these lovelies like to take a whirl? -- JeriAnn

Fete et Fleur said...

Your fairy cork dolls are wonderful!! They have been so nice to me at the party. I had the most wonderful conversation with Connie about wine and the best way to plant your vines. Thank you for sharing your friends with us.

Melissa said...

What a marvelous guest list! I'm a little intimidated about the Queen attending -- I totally wore the wrong shoes. Think she'll notice?

Miss Sandy said...

What fanciful little creations! I love seeing something different and new!

Angela Harris said...

Wow. I Love this idea. Very quirky & fun. Also a great way to recycle :)

Donna Patrice said...

Adorable Corkdolls!! Hey...you, too, must be a wine drinker...as I ALWAYS say: "The secret ingredient to ALL things is good wine!"

I wish I had had time to pull out my clothes pin dolls and join the tea party - but the little man is still here and we went to see Wall-E and eat popcorn, then off to the library for a stack of books: dinosaurs, snakes, dinosaurs, snakes, shadows and one storybook about imagination. =)

But I could always be like the rabbit...I'm late! I'm late! I'm late! =)

Kelli Bear Haven said...

Those Cork Fairies are so beautiful. Very talented work.

Many Blessings,

Kelli

bluemuf said...

OOOHHH.... wasn't Vanessa's party just splendid today?? I've yet to recover from all of the festivities! I am so glad that you stopped by to visit me and even more glad to have had the chance to visit you! How wonderful are the fairy cork dolls??? Loooove them! : ) I'll be coming back by to visit often!

3rdEyeMuse said...

just checking in to thank everyone for their visit. I am getting sleepy, but not quite ready to hit the pillows (I'm having too much fun!).

calamitkim - I tried visiting, but was only directed to your (very empty) profile page. thanks for stopping by & come back anytime.

Donna - lol ... I hate to admit it, but no, not really. I do have a glass once in a blue moon. Does that count? A friend surprised me with a huge bag (more than 100, I'm sure) of corks ... and it appears that the majority are from the same type of champagne - go figure! ... AND please be like the white rabbit ... better late than never!

the girls wanted me to tell all of you that they are having such a wonderful time with everyone - thank you for making them feel so welcome. :)

Tinker said...

Oh now that is my kind of crowd!
Especially that Olivia, and MewMew would fit right in, around here. I think those cats of mine, have moved on from tea to champagne - 'cause I just heard a ~PoP~
At least I hope it was champagne...
I love your lovely party poppers - those are showstoppers!
I'll stop gushing now :-)

AnastasiaC said...

so nice to have met you at the party!! i love giveaways!!

sherri (Tied Up In Ribbons) said...

wonderful to see you here with all your friends. I'm also partying all night and all day to see everyone's wonderful things.

curious and curiouser... said...

I think Penelope is my favorite ~ adorable! I hope they all had a wonderful time at the MaD tEa PaRtY!!

benson said...

What beautiful guests! I do hope everyone had a grand time sipping tea and dancing on tables...what a delight!

3rdEyeMuse said...

ok ... I've hit my limit and have to go seek a quiet corner and a soft squishy pillow for a bit. I haven't had my partying fill (I'm only up to R ... and of course I started at the bottom of the list), so I hope nobody minds a super late arrival ...

... zzzz ....

Brook said...

LOL! I love your fairies! I hope you have all had a good time at the party!

BumbleVee said...

Queens of the Cork....
and, don't stop at the list....don't think I made it onto that...but we did have a party over at the Bearister Bookcase none the less. Stop by if you have time tomorrow.....

Elizabeth said...

What guests you have!
I'd be delighted to spend time with all of them.

Well you may not have had time to make yourself a costume for the party but your guests are definitely dressed to the nines!! These are fantastic and what a creatively inspired idea!! Nice to meet you at Vanessa's!

studiorose said...

How fun! I can't decide whether I like Mew-Mew or Olivia best - they are both simply adorable! I am also having a give-away at my place; be sure to stop by if you haven't already! :)

turquoise cro said...

O! your SWEET cork fairies remind me of the only one I have ever made! It was included in an altered book I sold maybe 2-3 years ago!!!I think I used my pic as a baby! I probably have a pic somewhere in my files! I would LOVE a fairy to fly here to WV!!!I might have to try and make another one, I have saved some corks!

3rdEyeMuse said...

It's nearly 1:00 pm (the day after, dontcha know) and I am just now reaching the last of the "p's" ... I sure hope nobody minds that we're being way more than fashionably late ...

Rascallion said...

Such a fine time, I am still lingering! So lovely to meet you (you certainly did get around-well done!)

dubuhdudesigns said...

I'm back with Mimosa's for everyone this morning since some of us just arrived to the party:)

I am amazed and delighted by everything I've seen - what a glorious treat!

My Artful Heart said...

LOVE your cork art! I am now inspired to create art from my wine corks from the many winery jaunts DH and I make. Sorry that I am a bit late to party with you at your place...thanks for stopping over to party with me...the great thing is the party never really ends :-)

Cheers,
Amy

10,000 thank you's to everyone - this has been a most EXCELLENT party.

Kate said...

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by my little soiree. I must confess I was so tired, I fell asleep in a little pile of glitter and now I have it all over myself!

I had a nice giggle over your cork people. So funny.

Thanks, and stop by anytime - I just love company!

Kate

Waterrose said...

I feel like I just fell down the rabbit hole! What a fantastic place of altered and repurposed things. I am enthralled by the little cork fairys. How clever!

Elizabeth said...

What a fabulous creative tea party.
I love these little "corkies!"
Thanks for sharing tea with me!
Come visit again.

inventivesoul said...

What a FUN looking bunch of guests!
I LOVE your set up!

*laughing*

Those cork charachters are so creative!

Amber Dawn

Janet said...

You are SO creative! What an imagination! I loved your fairies, especially Esmerelda and Mathide, who looks a lot like my grandmother. Her name was Matilda, oddly enough.

Trina said...

mew mew is the cutest. and the queen with wings!?! fantastic!:) what a great tea party.

gilda said...

ahahahah! these are so cute!! i love that you stuck those girls in cork!

Dave Huddleston said...

Your guests are just lovely and attired quite beautifully. Did you all have a good time?

Alberta & Ava said...

All of yoru revelers are wonderful!!! And I don't have to put any of you to work because the lovliest thing about my party is that it's a SELF-CLEANING party. Never heard of one of those? Well, that's the beauty of Neverland: "If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?"

Jeanne said...

So very lovely indeed.
I love the Japanese lady in your collage......
I love all things from the Orient.
Love you.
Thanks for your visit and kind words.
Love Jeanne

I think that your Fairies are THE most interesting little group of ladies I have seen in a very long time!!! Would love to know how you came up with the idea to do that!!! (me thinks there might have been wine involved!!)
Total whimsy!!!
