Years ago when Ken Cannon and I moved into this neighborhood, I was befriended by a woman closer to my mother's age than to mine. Denna Hale. But we took to each other immediately because we like a lot of the same things. Dogs. Holidays. Tea parties. Miniatures. Antique dolls. Gardens. Picture books.
A few weeks ago I received an invitation in the mail to an "Irish tea party" to be held at Denna's house. In her kitchen she had two tables with tea cups--but instead of drinking tea, we used those cups to create miniature fairy gardens.
This is the essence of Denna. Making magic for the rest of us.
|Is that a leprechaun in my tea cup?|
|To be sure! And he's ready for his close-up, Mr. DeMille.|
