The Dragon Society Tea Party

The main event of our weekend was to be a Dragon Society Tea Party. The ladies from a local church host "Tea on the Lawn" on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons during summer at the Mill of Kintail, so this fit into the plans perfectly.


Sue, Andrea and Frances (right to left above) exiting the cloister before descending the stairs to the mill.  ↑

We were early, so we waited at the picnic table by the deck for awhile. ↓



After touring the museum for awhile (see yesterdays post), we began to ready ourselves for the event. Sue had crafted dragon necklaces and is helping Andrea with hers tn this photo. ↑

Tea is served. ↓



Both Mary and Danica seem pleased with proceedings ↑ as does Frances ↓ , the Dragon Mistress.
 


I think JJ's dragon is about to nab JJ's cupcake. ↑

But the other dragons seem content with their lot in life. ↓


Finally: a few photos of the group from various angles.

Awww--sweet. And I love the photo of Mary, so queenly in her lovely red hat!
JJ and his dragon--priceless.
I didn't realize there were so many cute dragons about. I shall have to keep an eye out.

Such a great thing to do! Is it a fundraiser for the church? So clever of Sue to make necklaces. Can we see a close up? I've seen pictures of her jewelry. It's beautiful!
