Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #274
What Happens in Teapotterville, Stays in Teapotterville
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!
The Rest of the Story:
1: Happy Almost Halloween all you in Teapotterville. We are going to celebrate You this week. We've no puzzle to solve, no crime to detect, no animals to rescue, no missing artwork to find. No this week is all about YOU
. A Party to end all parties to thank you for being you, just because you are wonderful, and amazing, and generous, and a little bit crazy too. Are you wondering what I'm talking about? Well, it's very simple, we're having a party. No, not just any party; a bang up, sensational, sure to make the news party!! This is gonna be a night to remember!!!
2: Do y'all remember the adventures we had rescuing that debutante ladybug Lou-La-Bella Rock-a-Fella?
Her doting aunt is so appreciative of our saving her darling niece and they still talk about "those Teapotter-ladies" at all the family reunions. When Auntie Rose-a-bella Rock-a-fella decided to host an annual Fall Masquerade Party, to honor some person or group of persons who she felt went above and beyond to help others, she decided the honorees of the first one should be none other than the fabulous, wonderfully talented and generous ladies who reside in Teapotterville.
3: There will be teas of every variety (with maybe some additshuns), cookies and cakes enough to make your head swim, glitter, confetti, and glitz galore. There will be dancing, eating, sipping, and fun making everywhere. And the funnest part will be trying to guess who is who, the one requirement is that you must be in disguise. Masks are required, costumes are encouraged, and an unveiling will be held at the end.
4: Auntie Rose-a-bella wants everyone to come disguised as their favorite historical or fictional character. Hint: there will prolly be some prizes also for the bestest of the best costumes, hair, mask etc.
Bring a card inspired by who your choice of costume would be, their dress, hair, story, etc. just be sure to tell us who it is. No witchy witchs allowed but Glenda; she can come.
The Destination this week is each other! Once a month, we send our cards to each other! A little payback and reward to the teapotters for always sending their cards to the recipient of the Destination Station.
It is our goal to surprise each and every Teapotter that is participating in this monthly card swap and send their card to in this monthly Tickle a Teapotter card swap with a handmade card from another Teapotter! You know, give them a little tickle!
To accomplish that I have started this new thread: Tickle a Teapotter~What Happens in Teapotterville, Stays in Teapotterville
in the Teapot Tuesday Extras Forum. If you are participating in the card exchange please go to this thread and follow the instructions.
Here is my card.
