Candyland Court, Tea Time with Pageant Queen and Fiji Mermaid!Post Six

Do you smell that?, its the smell of Cotton Candy, Fried Dough and Kettle Corn, laced with the sweet fragrance of Jelly Apples, Roated Nuts and Coconut and Penny Dogs, so delicious. I just couldn't resist buying a bag of Cotton Candy puffs from Lara's Sweets on my way to tea.

I wonder where it is?...Oh, now I see it, just follow the signs and the sugar sticks to that glorious and humongous Tea Pot, it must be nearly 10 feet tall and wide.
"Oh, Sage, look at all those sweet and edible jewels and dazzling stars, I also see all of the Soiree Attendees are here, finding their seats and exploring their goodie bags!"

What an honor it must have been last year for Corneilia Gatsby. I can hardly wait to hear who will be crowned this year. Will it be the Glorious Fiji Mermaid Zoe I wonder? She does look lovely in her carnival accessories and apparel.

Oh I so wish I had know about your wonderful magical carnival before the day of its arrival! I so would have wanted to be included. I can visit anyway!

Well all that sugary goodness made me thirsty, I have to step over to the lemonade booth and refresh myself. When will the Carnival Queen be chosen? Who are the contestants? I do hope they announce it so that I can be there.

I'm not sure who will win Carnival Queen this year, the results aren't all in yet, but I sure did have fun at tea and meeting last years winner and the fiji mermaid as well.

Did you all enjoy the tea and meeting them too, the cupcakes were so yummy!

Magic and Carnival Joy! Lisa!

P.S. If I didn't visit your blog, its because I couldn't get into your blog link, so I'll wish you magic and carnival joy from here!

Jamie said...

Oh Fiji mermaid is a gem...we have a lovely mermadi lady here, that almost came to the carnival with us...but she had other plans for the day and was sad not to make it. When I do introduce her, I'll be sure to let you know.
