A little Poem from my Childhood

I had a little tea party
This afternoon at three.

'Twas very small-
Three guests in all-

Just I


 Myself


And Me

Myself at all the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea;
'Twas also I who ate the pie
And passed the cake to me.

-Jessica Nelson North

  1. I adore the flowers in your home - both in the pitcher and on the teapot and your beautiful art! It sounds like Sopie had a very nice tea party with herself... or was it Shawna who had a very nice tea party with herself... I am getting confused here! :)

  2. Your tray looks lovely, and Sophie is such a beautiful cat (she's similar to our Jess, who is the undisputed queen on the household!) All the cats roam wherever they please, although we do try to scoot them off the table while we are eating... We're so classy! xxx

    1. Sophie is aware that I am the Queen but she is definitely the Princess. She is not allowed on the table when I am eating either. This rule makes no sense to her whatsoever, but as Queen I am not to be questioned.

    1. No I didn't paint the teapot but obviously I was attracted to it because it is totally me!

  6. Hi Shawna I seem to have forgotten about google plus so I am just catching up on your posts. I love the ceremony that goes with a nice teapot and making a bit of a thing about afternoon tea. Great poem and lovely photos of your cat. They are such good company.

    1. Hi! It's nice to see you! I'm a bit of a prolific poster at the moment so catching up is a bit of a chore. Cats really are good company. They are all different of course, just like people are, but all the different cats who have shared my life have been wonderful companions. My Sophie follows me around the house most of the time and is nearly always with me. Or rather, as with a cat ON me!
