curiouser and curiouser

23 . July . 2010

we slipped away for a
girly tea party at alice’s yesterday;
a premiere way to enjoy a summer afternoon
with sara + three excited little girls.

[think: green apple slices + nutella,
warm pumpkin + buttermilk scones,
banana bread with jam.]


their conversation on the way there:
‘let’s pretend we met eachother
in kindergarten and now
we’re eighteen.’


fairy-dusting
before tea.

they decided that, for the sake of the tea party,
they would acquire new names:
lyd – katie
caroline – rosabelle
bets – alice. of course.

‘If everybody minded their own business,
the world would go around a great deal
faster than it does.’
the duchess

‘sentence first — verdict afterwards.’
the queen

‘begin at the beginning and go on
till you come to the end: then stop.’
the king
