ARCHITECT FITCH AND CONTRACTOR MITCH RAN INTO A GLITCH!
FOR THIS TERRIBLE GLITCH, THEY NEED A QUICK FIX!

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. If I had a teapot like this, I probably would put some cute Fall arrangement inside it and just sit it around. I love teapots but I don't really know how to use something like this! That's why I would put a Fall arrangement in it and have it sitting around. Ooh, a lit candle would be cool in there too, but you couldn't have the top on it or the glass would turn all black and the flamed snuffed! Ooh, what about changing it from holiday season to holiday season. A cute litte miniature snowman in the middle with fluffy snow in the bottom, an orange candle with black spiders in the bottom, a minuture Christmas tree in the middle with some of those red foamy ball thingies, a big ole pretty Gerber Daisy in the middle with potpourie in the bottom. Easter, St. Patricks, Valentines! Okay, I got off track, back to the teaparty! Sorry.....
2. Architect Fitch and Contractor Mitch ran into a glitch! For this terrible glitch, they need a quick fix! Fionna Fitch is quite the architect, she can design pretty much anything! But when it comes to putting something together, she can't even put the lid on her teapot! Mitch Mitalli can build anything! He can take a pile of sticks, just go with the flow and build a mansion! Mitch and Fitch are about to get hitched and are planning a long and happy marriage as well as a long and successful business endeavor! At the wedding, they got their first job! Fionna has an uncle whose best friend's sister's cousin's brother whose father's sister has a friend whose mother's aunt's bosses uncle's best friend's business partner's wife's father is building a house! What luck! Let's just call that guy Seymore Threwhouse!
3. Seymore is filthy rich and out of the country for months at a time on business. He is one of those guys that just leaves the details to the professionals! But he's coming to town for the closing soon! Finally the bills will get paid! Architect Fitch has been so busy designing she hasn't been to the job site in months and Contractor Mitch has just been going with the flow and to the best of his knowledge has follwed the plans to a tea!! Rut roh! We have a big glitch!
Mitch! You have too many windows in this house!
What? That's what the plans call for!
Where are the walls? The front door? The brick work on the front of the house?
I followed the material list to a tea! See here, this list of materials, it's all windows, its all glass!
It is? That's not what I intended! I musta used the wrong material codes! Didn't you refer to the drawings?
The drawings have See More Through House written all over them! I thought it was all glass!
Mitch, that's the owner's name! They always write it on each page of the plans!
The guy's name is See More Through House?
It's Seymore Threwhouse!
4. Okay, on to Plan B. This guy is eccentric, filthy rich and has quite the opinion of himself. Right? It is just like him to want the most eye catching, expensive, crazy and bizarre mansion in the neighborhood. I think that is what we built! All we have to do is hire 42,000 interior designers, have them decorate these rooms so beautifully that all who drive by will be shocked and amazed! Seymore will get such attention! 42,000 rooms of sheer elegance and beauty. Don't worry about the bathrooms! We will put beautiful, imported double sided wall paper up or something. The designers will know what to do! Just find interior designers and lots of them. Let's decorate these rooms for the public! We only have a week until Seymore gets in town! Interior designers have amazing talent and taste. We don't have time to come up with a certain color scheme. Just tell each desiger to pick a room, decorate it in their own taste, decorate that room as if it was a glass room in their own house! It will be beautiful, I am certain! Tell them to bring beautiful things, anything! Just beautiful, to impress Seymore!! You get the picture?
If you bring something unsightly to the public you have to come in the back door and decorate it! It's really no big deal, there is no alley to drive by the back, so the public won't even see you back there!
Make a card that shows us what your favorite things are! Make a card decorated with something beautiful to you! Make a card that shows us what your *glass room* in your *glass house* would look like to the public! Make a card that floats YOUR boat!
This week our destination is a Philadelphia, PA. If you would like a destination for your card this week, how about sending it to Eula! Eula is celebrating her 109th birthday on September 14th. Eula was brought to our attention last year by Lorraine (Pidgesmom). Lorraine has a friend (Jackie) who met Eula and has become very close! Eula is an amazing women. Let's make Eula's 109th birthday a beautiful thing by sending her our wonderfully decorated interior rooms! Ha! She's a colorful woman, she should have a colorful 109th birthday!
To see Eula's thank you note for the birthday cards we sent her for her 108th birthday as well as her address, please visit Post #245
