WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY
THE SISTERHOOD OF THE TRAVELING TEAPARTY
AND CHALLENGE #139
OH MY GOSHA, SASHA!
A PROPOSAL FROM MCTIBBONS
IS CONTINGENT UPON RIBBONS!
Note: Anyone is welcome to play! You automatically become a Teapotter the first time you play in our challenge. Also, you do not have to write a story. You just have to be inspired by the teapot or by the story about this week's location! Have fun! If this is your first Teapot Tuesday Challenge, please mention that in your commentary so we can be sure to greet you properly, in pure Teapot Tuesday fashion! Your participation in Destination Station is 100% voluntary and not at all required. Just have fun!
This is my story!
1. Don't anyone be pouring tea into this little number! The longer I host Teapot Tuesday, the more amazed I am at the teapots to be found in the internet world of googling! I think I have googled for every imaginable teapot on the face of the earth! I found this cute little number while searching for girly girl teapots! Tee hee! How is this for a girly girl teapot? The only thing lacking is ribbon! Where's the ribbon?
2. When I think of ribbon, I think of numerous scenes in my all time favorite movie, Pride and Predjudice! One scene is when the sisters bump into Mr. Wickham, an Officer of the Militia, they purposely drop their lacey hankerchief and when he so kindly picks it up, they giggle and then all run off together to shop for ribbons to wear to the ball. On the way home, they are frollicking along in the meadow next to the river showing off their newly purchased ribbons to Mr. Bingley! With 5 women in the house, its no wonder that they need to quickly tidy up the parlor when the next day, Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley are walking up to the door with a possible proposal of marriage for Jane. Heaven forbide, their ribbons are sloppily laying about the parlor! Get the ribbons, the ribbons! Mary, get the ribbons!
3. Well, no self respecting woman can get a man without plenty of ribbons! And therein lies our dilema! There are several things working against us here! It's not enough that we cannot pour tea into our teapot and that it is very lacking in the fancy ribbon department, but oh my gosha, Satin E. Sasha has not one ribbon in her possession and Officer Rib N. McTibbons will be calling very soon! Everyone knows a proposal from McTibbons is contingent upon ribbons! Satin E. Sasha and Rib N. McTibbons just might be together if only there's ribbon! It's no fib that Rib takes to rantin' when he doesn't see satin! Oh my gosha, Sasha, where is your satin? It's no fib, that Rib is quite the pain, when there's not a bit of grosgrain! Oh my gosha Sasha, where is your grosgrain? It's no fib, that Rib can be such a fool, when he doesn't see Tulle! Oh my gosha Sasha, where is your Tulle? No organdy, taffeta, or chiffon? Oh my gosha, Sasha, there's none to try on?
4. Desperate times call for desperate measures! Lady Toodle Lou, you know what to do! Send word of a ball, to one and to all! An Organza Bonanza! Some fun for us all! Satin E. Sasha is throwing a ball, you're invited to come, if you do you'll get rum! Oh, what was I thinking, I meant to say tea! You're invited by me, if you come you'll get tea! Lady Toodle Lou is Satin's childhood friend, the one with a crush on Mr. Collins! But THAT is a whole nuther story to be saved for a nuther Teapot Tuesday! This teaparty is all about Satin E. Sasha and Officer Rib N. McTibbons, the guy that loves ribbons. Now don't be shocked and stomp on the floor, when you hear what you need to get in the door! Forget about your invite, its a ribbon you need, a ribbon to get in, a ribbon to be seen! It's ribbons for McTibbons, that's what we need! Oh my gosha, they are really for Sasha! To wear in her hair, to attach to her dress, to tie on her teapot, to showoff to McTibbons, I must confess! Bring what you may, can be anything, I dare say! But if you don't bring a ribbon, it will look like we're fibbin' when we say we are here to ease Satin's ribbonless fear! Oh my gosha, don't tell Sasha, that you've really just come for your share of the rum! Oh my gosha, Sasha, what got into me! I meant to say tea!
Make a girly girl feminine card with any image, maybe something fit for a ball? Or anything at all! But you MUST bring some ribbon, yes you must bring ribbon!
DESTINATION STATION #139
This week's destination is Mt. Vernon, Indiana. We will be sending our cards to fellow SCSer, Ashley Finical. Faith (Yabbadodo)
brought Ashley and her family's situation to my attention. Ashley and her family's home was recently caught in a flood along with many member's of Ashley's community. Her basement housed many things, but quite importantly to a stamper, the fact that she stamped in her basement tells us the extent of her personal loss.
For more information including the mailing address please visit Post #200
in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread, should you decide to send your challenge card to Ashley! Please remember that just because you participate in a Teapot Tuesday challenge that is combined with a card drive request, it does not mean that you are REQUIRED to send your cards. It is strictly voluntary.
