Default MMTPT438~December 13, 2016~No, No, No...The Tinsel Goes On The Tree

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #438


No, No, No...The Tinsel Goes On The Tree


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: Well, thankfully the reindeer are all slimmed down and rounded up and thanks to Ina's detective work, we know that Conner and Cupid are both in tip-top shape and can pull the sleigh around the world in record time. Whew!! Now all the short people are turning the focus to getting the streets and houses decorated for the coming holiday visitors and shoppers. Because where else would you go to get your Christmas cookies if you are to busy to bake them. No where but Sugar Cookie Lane.

2: So the lights have been strung by the big burly guys as the short people ten to get them all tied up n knots and then all you hear isn't Silver Bells that's for sure. So now the short people are in charge of the greenery, the ornaments, the tinsel, and the spray snow. Ummm, I'm not so sure about that spray snow stuff, that could get out of hand real quick. But here come the troops of short people with wagons and wagons of greenery and boxes and boxes of ornaments. So the decorating is soon to commence.

3: Around the town and up and down the lanes they go, draping greenery above windows and doors. And after them come the ornaments crew and they are a bit slower as they have to argue at every door which one went there last year so they don't repeat. Oh dear, why didn't someone write this all down last year. This is gonna take awhile I'm afraid.

4: Wait, what are those short people doing over here? Oh, NO.....it's the tinsel crew.....Wait, you aren't supposed to put tinsel here, see it's hanging down over the door. The tinsel goes on the big tree. Hurry, we have to get this stuff pulled down and get over to the square or the tree will look bare.


Challenge Translation:

More Christmas, more Christmas...can you ever have to much Christmas? Bring the ornaments, the tinsel, the garland, the bows and lets make jolly.

Destination Station:

This week our teaparty is on the road to TN. If you wish a destination for your card, how about sending it to Virginia. She was brought to our attention by her daughter, SCSr STYXROCKSME

to find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post 544 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 a quick link to MMTPT438 challenge gallery

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT438 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.

This is going to Tenn. to a woman who lost her husband a couple of years ago on Christmas. We are trying to cheer her up and uplift her spirits during the holidays.
