Pert as a school-girl well can be

Filled to the brim with girlish glee

Three little maids from school"

~Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Mikado"


Let me tell you a story about three little maids who wished for a tea party fit for a princess! 


Afternoon Tea
Who wouldn't like to drink afternoon tea
Out in the garden just like these three?
With the song of a bird, and the hum of a bee,
And the sun-flowers looking all eyers to see.


The little girl's stirring her tea so sweet;
Tea in the garden is such a great treat,
With a cool breeze blowing, and not too much heat-

And doesn't the tea-tray look charmingly neat?

~Kate Greenaway



Princess Katherine that is!!



Our little Katherine has waged a war so hard and wished to have a day of respite...

A Day of Tea & Cakes & Joy!!  

With Flowers & Butterflies & A Magical Unicorn named Star!!






Star, the Unicorn made a very special appearance on this magical day to spread joy and hope to all!!

Perhaps the most wondrous of all mystical creatures, the Unicorn
is a symbol of magic, miracles, purity, innocence and enchantment.

This magical and enchanting animal appears to only a rare few and
has the ability to bestow Magic, Miracles and Wisdom to those who
are pure of heart and virtuous in their deeds.



Please join us again for our next adventure in The Secret Garden's Book of Dreams!

Olivia, Warrior Princess - Our Very First Secret Garden Project Dream Shoot!

As you all know, we have recently launched The Secret Garden Project where we provide Dream Shoots for children fighting life threatening illnesses!

We style and design a photo/video  shoot around each child's dream and then provide images and a making of video to the family free of charge.

I would like you to meet Olivia our very first young lady to join The Secret Garden Family!

Miss Olivia as Strawberry Shortcake serving up amazing wonders at her Sweet Shack.

This is Olivia's Story as told by her mom:

In July on 2013, Olivia was an active 4 year old. She loved most playing with friends, dance, soccer and yoga. One evening she spiked a high fever, we went to the doctor and they thought it was a virus. Long story short, she had fevers for 40 days around the clock, she was dying. Finally, the results of her bone marrow biopsy came back, the doctors had the news parents never want to hear: Olivia has Leukemia. Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. This is the most common kind of childhood cancer, and luckily one of the most treatable. The treatment plan is 2.5 years for girls. Olivia is doing most of her treatment outpatient, but has spent a total of 31 days in the hospital. Countless trips to the ER. Nine months of extensive chemotherapy, which kept her out of Preschool and was almost daily trips to UNMH's Infusion Unit. Olivia's chemotherapy included IV, spinal and oral chemotherapy. Through it all, the family is so thankful for the endless support of family, friends and strangers. It is truly amazing to see how people want to help kids with cancer. We are very happy to report Olivia will be done with her chemotherapy on October 31st 2015! They think the leukemia is gone! She was able to attend Kindergarten and is now in 1st grade  She will continue monthly labs to make sure it does not come back after chemotherapy. I have nicknamed my daughter “Warrior Princess” she is truly a warrior and my hero!

Ballad of the Working Man

Ballad of the Working Man


Hear the whistle blowin"

Another working day

Turn the wheels of power

Earn your daily pay

The blood and sweat of working men

Made this country great

To the kings and queens of industry

Your lives we celebrate


No matter where you're going

Remember where you've been

It takes me back to a simple life

I sing my song - the ballad of the working man


The rhythm of the engines

Pounding out a song

Pulling all together

To make this kingdom strong

To every man and woman

Standin' tall and proud

We dedicate this song to you

Rejoice and shout out loud
