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. Just about the time I think I could one day run out of teapots to feature, I find 42,000 more. Okay, so I collect teapots and have quite a few but if I was a REAL teapot collector, I would honestly have to be living in a separate house from my teapots! There are so many in this world! Did you know that the Worlds Largest Teapot Collection is in Trenton, Tennessee? Yup, there's so may teapots under one roof, they had to turn it into a museum! Maybe we could have a teaparty there some day?
2. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is just so annoyed with Fluttering Floyd! Why can't he sit still? Really, for real! Stop fluttering his wings! Enjoy some cool things! Sit at the top of the hill, take a minute to chill! He could learn how to sing, do a new sorta thing! His wings are a flutter, his friends they just shutter! He's a fluttering fiend, do you suppose its caffeine? He's a talented flyer, goes Mach II with his hair on fire but when will he discover, he doesn't have to relax in a hover? He's met a sweet thing and boy can she sing! A mate she has found if she can just settle him down! She's built a wonderful nest and she's trying her best but Fluttering Floyd has her oh so annoyed! They seem to do fine while in mid-air but land on a branch? Oh, why do I care? There is nothing to fear, she's got a idear! It's a phone call away, this thing is solved in a day! Oh dear, Miss Tweety, you are such a sweetie. Don't you worry at all, I'm so glad you made this call! No, he's not insane, I'll jump on a plane!
3. Meet Dr. Phil Sitstill. That's him? He's so little! You can see why he travels by plane, no longer flys! It doesn't take a big bird to mold a fluttering fellow into something quite mellow! He's a bird-brainiac and is known for his work in fluttering disorders! Its more of a problem than you think! His research has resulted in his new and patented therapeutic bird cage. It's all the new rage! With some counseling in the cage as well as some group sessions with birds that can sit still, you'll no longer be annoyed by Fluttering Floyd.
4. Here's what we do, Coo-Coo! Coo-Coo is Dr. Phil Sitstill's assistant! If you only knew the success Dr. Phil has had with Coo-Coo! Well, that is a whole nudder story for a nudder day. Back to what we do, Coo-Coo. Bring birds, lots of birds. 42,000 is key. Bring birds that know Floyd, bring birds that are annoyed! Bring birds that can sit who won't throw a fit! I'm sure that they're ample, we need lots for Floyd's sample. As I counsel our patient all will soon see, that Floyd and Miss Tweety can live in that tree! We also need hearts, maybe a flower or two and some ribbon as well, just make sure that its blue!
Wanna know what is for the birds??? If you bring birds that are fluttering and flying! That's for the birds! Its a backdoor entrance for you if you bring a bird with a fluttering disorder! And if you bring a hummingbird (OMG!) you might single handedly be the downfall of Dr. Phil Sitstill. Don't tell anyone, its bad for business, but he has this hummingbird phobia disorder sorta thingy which isn't quite under control yet. I think it has to do with him being so little and his last name! He's seeing a therapist!! If you bring a hummingbird, backdoor! No cookies for you!
Make cards with birds. Add some hearts, some flowers and some ribbon.
This week's destination is Marblehead, Massachusetts. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Barbara! Barbara is the oldest and dearest friend of the mother of fellow SCSer Missro
(Robin). Robin contacted me and wondered if the Teapotters could help her with a card drive for her mother's closest friend who is battling yet another round of Ovarian cancer.
For more information as well as the address to mail your card to please visit Post #243
in the Teapot Tuesday Destination Station thread. 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 totally 100% voluntary!
Here is my card.
Here is the awesome card
that Robin (Missro) made for Barbara!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given me permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Friday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send me a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater! If you dont' want to cheat, I am posting a sneak peak on my blog
each week showing you a glimpse of the following week's teapot as well as a hint of the story! It's at the end of the Teapot Tuesday Post each week. I usually post it sometimes during the weekend before the next Tuesday!
