Deliciously furry times

Take a beautiful gifted red (!) hat

add a generously gifted vintage fur 
(anyone know the breed?)

with some jools

and a silk scarf skirt

and we have the recipe for a story!! 

Stand back, Lady Jemima Pennyweather coming through!

 "So good to be here my dear"

 "A cup of necklace tea? I don't mind if I do"

"What have we here then, a new variety I see"

"Oh gosh! It's garter tea!"

"I haven't seen this since University days. 
Oh we had some fun times then..."

"Ooh it still fits!"

"Hee hee, now we're talking!"

"Ha, ha, ha! You are a riot, my deeply delicious dear, hic!"

"zzz...wha's tha? Hic...zzz" 
(Garter tea does tend to make Lady Jemima comatose. Let's tiptoe away and leave her to sleep it off. Shhh!)

Oh Nan, I hope you won't mind if you're watching. 
I really do value your gifts.
Here they are being sensible :-)


'Til next time, keep creating!

  1. Oh my goodness that was hilarious! For a while there I didn't think Lady Jemima could smile, but that she might continue to wither my soul with that imperious stare. Thankfully some garter tea loosens her up! She wears some very elegant things and looks smashing in red, does Lady Jemima. She should stop over at my place and we will drink tea and knit together.

  2. My dearest jazzy you are pure fun fabulousity and MAGIC.
    Thank you sooooooooooo much for being part of the Share-in-Style family.

  17. hey!!!
    smashing, that was! I love the comic strip style!!!
    Fashion and theatre, yeeeeeesssss!!!
    We want more, more, more!!!

  18. You are HILARIOUS! :) I couldn't stop giggling.

  19. Why am I never invited to teas like this? (Never invited to teas of any kind.
    I must be a philistine ! No, not here where I live ... I'd just fit in more closely!) Thank you for showing us the garter tea ceremony. It should be an annual event like a Burns Dinner.
    Really lovely outfit components. I hope you did/will wear this elegance out and about, garter and all!

  20. You are amazing! Love your story telling skills, your numerous expressions and your style. You must pursue an acting career! Your hat is marvelous; thank you for sharing with Hat Attack!

  21. I love this look! So striking, and such a fun way to enjoy tea :)

  22. Such a ladylike hat. I love those little, kind of useless, totally decorative one. I just read an Agatha Christie from about 1942, in which she describes a woman's hat as "clinging to her left eyebrow."
