We just received the invitation to your Mad Hatter's party! Unfortunately Ms.Christine cannot attend as it happens to be fall on the same day as her husband's birthday and their wedding anniversary. However she is sending the four of us as representatives of Du Buh Du Designs on her behalf. Actually there will be five of us in attendance if you include King Dante who will be joining with us for part of the trip and rejoining us again at the party!
We look forward to meeting all of the other exciting guests you've invited and hope to maybe visit with the other Du Buh Du girls who reside at the Valencia Estate. And don't worry, we know your house will be full of weekend guests so we've booked a few rooms at Miraval until Monday. We will taking our own form of transportation as driving would simply take too long and we'd rather avoid the airport these days. We'll be leaving Thursday afternoon and should arrive by midmorning Saturday. See you soon!

a little shameless self-promotion..
Leaving Bend ,Oregon with a nice view of Mt. Bachelor
Poor Miss Violette isn't used to flying..
Arriving in "Arizona" very early this morning..we're almost there!
P.S. Ms. Christine just had a giveaway for one of her dolls this week and even though she mentioned it would be awhile before she had another, she wanted to let everyone at the party know that she is having a small,teeny tiny give away for "Dante" (he's about 4" tall or so). They don't need to have a blog or be a participant in the Mad Hatter Party festivities. All they need to do is leave a comment,interesting cat names, etc. She will pick the winner Tuesday July 1st at noon!!
And don't forget to stop by the "Mad Hatter's Tea Party" this weekend over at A Fanciful Twist for more sites that are participating!
P.S.S. These four new dolls will not be available for sale (not yet anyhow) but not to worry I will be making more of them soon!
Thanks to Mark for helping me out with the "on location" photo shoots and by making that fabulous hot air balloon ( I only helped with the decoration)! See why I married him? I can order up a plane, a train or an automobile and he'll construct one. Not that I actually have a use for any of those. But you know what I mean :)
