Default MMTPT432~November 1, 2016~Pirates, Parrots, and Pansies...Oh My

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #432


Pirates, Parrots, and Pansies...Oh My


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: Do you ever wish that you could walk into the pages of a good book and become a part of the story? What if there was a magic potion or spell that could make that very thing happen? What would you do to get your hands on it? What amount would you be willing to pay for something so wonderfully fun? Oh my, can you just imagine the fun we could have if we could walk around in Wonderland? or hitch a ride in the Batmobile? or twirl around at the top of a hill to music playing like in "Sounds of Music", or fly around the world like Peter Pan? Oh the possibilities are endless.

2: For little MaryKay, these dreams took on a really weird sort of reality after she fell asleep in the orchard one afternoon reading a book about pirates and sea treasure. Suddenly she woke to find herself in a forest that had a strange resemblance to the orchard but the trees were all old and twisted, and there was the strangest smell of vinegar in the air. And all around were sounds of birds that she didn't recognize and drum beats coming from somewhere up ahead. Or maybe over to the left, she really couldn't be certain. And then the loudest shrieking noises ever sounded in the trees above and nearly frightened little MaryKay right out of her penny loafers.

3: She started running forward where she thought the drums were coming from but she never seemed to find them, just more and more twisted gnarly trees and shrieking sounds from something in the trees that she could never quite see, and that weird smell. After what seemed like hours she found a small clearing and nearly collapsed with relief on the soft grass. Only to find herself suddenly surrounded by the strangest little one eyed big bellied pirates you ever could imagine.

4: She closed her eyes quickly and counted to 100, then slowly opened them to see if they were gone, but now there were about 100 of them and she closed her eyes so tight that she saw stars and kept them that way for the longest time ever. SHRRIEEEEEEEKK!!! Oh my Lord, said little MaryKay and jumped up and ran back towards where she thought she had started from and the ole tire swing. But the shrieking thing kept right behind her and she couldn't out run it. Finally out of breath, she fell down on the grass and decided to give herself up to whatever would be.

5: Pouncing on her, her little cousin Petey was laughing and wanting to know why she stopped. The impact of him jumping on her jolted her back to reality and she realized she must have been dreaming. But she decided then and there that no more pirate books for her. Oh no, better to read safe books about butterflies or flowers instead.


**Moral of the story** Don't fall asleep in the orchard after the summer sun has started fermenting the fallen fruit......MWAAAHAAAA!!!!**


Challenge Translation:

Bright cheerful and colorful plants and flowers are needed. No rotting apples or it's the back door for you.


EPEC=extra points for extra credit:

Send along an encouraging scripture verse and grab yourself some of those fun cookies

Destination Station:

This week our cards are going to MN. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending them to Kay. She is the sister of SCSr Smilyj

To find out why and get an address for your card, please see post 538 in the destination station. 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 a quick link to the MMTPT#432 challenge gallery

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT432 in your upload and post a comment here so we can all see your card!

Ever want to get a jump on next week's challenge card? SCS has given Sheri (KSNurse) permission to create an email Teapot Tuesday Cheater Group and email the challenge out on the Saturday before the Tuesday of the challenge so you girls can have the weekend to make your card. Send her a pm with your email address if you wanna be a Cheater!

If you are confused about these challenges, see the first sticky post of this thread for more information. There is also a directory of individual challenges.

I haven't been able to play for a few months while we did some remodeling, but we are about 99% done and my crafty space is back and better than before. I'm thrilled to be sending the first card I've made in about 2 months to such a great lady.

Ladies- Kay is in awe. She wants me to come to her home and write thanks you notes to each and every one. I explained that it was not necessary. So I am sending hugs and a great big thank you from Kay!

Thanks ladies!!!!!!

PS they are on display on counters and table tops in her home. She wants people to see how wonderful and talented you all are!

Ladies- I finally was able to see my sister, Kay, this weekend. She is so overwhelmed by everyone's creativity, generosity and encouragement.
She still has surgery and radiation ahead!
I can't begin to tell you how wonderful you have made her feel!

Thanks

UPdate on my sister Kay. She received some bad news. She had a lumpectomy on Tuesday. The cancer has spread. Kay will have a mastectomy on Valentine's Day. In her words," You're never too old to have a mammogram". She fell last night and hit her head. She claims she is fine. I am so concerned about her.
if any one would like to send her a card that would be wonderful. She so appreciated all of them!
