Alice's Tea and Simple Scones

How much of the Mad Tea-Party chapter do you remember from Alice in Wonderland? It's so ridiculous, much like the rest of the whimsical book. Still, the idea of such an insane tea party endures and people are still fascinated by Alice and the Mad Hatter (who will forever look like Johnny Depp to some people and not the stunted, rude Hatter depicted by Sir John Tenniel). The fascination with the Tea Party has lead to the creation of all sorts of Alice related tea paraphernalia and even whole stores devoted to Alice's tea party. Even in San Antonio, we have a strange (but wonderful) place called Mad Hatter's. And in New York apparently, a sweet little shop called Alice's Tea Cup.

I'm crazy about these purple roses. Incredibly delicate and very beautiful.
