This is my story!
1. It's Tuesday, time for a teapot! Talk about a Teapot Parade! We are up to 198 teapots featured! Who'da thunk there are so many teapots in the world today! This little teapot is moving us outdoors this week. Well, I take that back, we are moving outdoors indoors! Don't know about all of you and where you live, but in Colorado we are coming off a very cool weekend! Downright cold with temperatures at night of about 41 degrees, rain, sweaters and jackets during the day! Brrr...in May! That is hard on social events! Okay, everybody inside! Move it inside! How many times have you heard that? Weddings, picnics, graduation parties, birthday parties, not to mention all of the sporting events that are cancelled because how do you move a Nascar Race into you house? Hmm....that sparks an idear!
2. You know, hanging each week with Curt (The Squirt) our resident entramanure of Teapot Tuesday, sure has opened up our minds to new ideas, new opportunities, and new business ventures! You know Curt, he never fails to cease the opportunity to sell something to The Teapotters! Pretty much anything!!! Well, here is our chance to get a jump on him at a new business venture! He might even be our best customer! As much as he loves hanging inside with the Teapotters, please remember that he is still a cow, and as such, he spends much of his time outdoors. He actually loves the outdoors, the open fields, the sweet smell of green grass, the thrill of escaping any pasture enclosed by any fence! He clearly would rather be there, than anywhere! However, Curt's just not that good in inclement weather! He is sort of a panty waist, not your real macho, I can take anything Mother Nature throws at me type of crazy cow! Won't he be surprised when he hears what the Teapotters are marketing! Whoot! And he thinks he is the only one that can come up with the next hot new seller!!!
3. Look at This! Nothing Is Amiss!
Bring your Mom, your Aunt, Your Sis!
Let It Snow and Let it Rain!
It's Okay! Hey! Bring On A Hurricane!
This Here Deal is a Big Win-Win!
Bring Your Kin Cuz Outside's In!
What A Venue, What A Place!
Take That Mother Nature! In Your Face!
4. Did you like our new marketing slogan? Okay, now that that part is done, let's get to woik! We found the perfect building and now it's time for the Teapotters to do what they do best! The decor! Bring the outside in! Bring the perfect scene, Mother Nature at her best. The perfect little outdoor spot for a picnic, wedding, graduation or birthday party! Find the beauty of nature and bring it on inside! What a success! Yes, Curt, you can! You can market your latest invention to the crowd of 42,000 standing in line outside to get inside to the inside outside so they can get out of the outside outside! Snort!
Make a card with a outdoors scene. Bring Mother Nature's beauty (when she is being good and not storming all over us!) Bring trees and flowers, birds and gardens. Sunshine, green grass, Sunday picnic scenes! You have to come in the back door if you bring ants, yellow jackets, flies or mosquitos! Yikes! I brought ant cookies!!
EPEC ~ (EXTRA POINTS FOR EXTRA COOKIES!)
You get extra points for extra cookies if you bring food to the celebration! Think picnic! An outdoor picnic inside, free of inclement weather bursting with scrumptious, yummy food, food, food! Just think, wherever the cookies are hidden, they won't get soggy! No Rain! Whoot!
This week our destination London, Ontario, Canada. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Gypsy! Gypsy's story has been brought to our attention by fellow Teapotter Charlene (crystaldolphins). Gypsy has some pretty serious health issues which has resulted in his being confined to a wheelchair. Gypsy's real name is Alicide but his nicname is ‘Gypsy’. He lives in a long-term care facility in London, Ontario Canada, is challenged by his health. Unfortunately, he is confined to a wheelchair. He is 67 years old and doesn’t have any family.
