WELCOME TO TEAPOT TUESDAY AND CHALLENGE #67
ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE
Happy Tuesday fellow tea partiers! Mothermark asked me if I would fill in for her with this week’s Teapot Tuesday challenge, which I was happy to oblige. I'm posting this late Monday evening since this working gal needs to get to bed in order to get up for work in the morning.
Once upon a time there was a sweet, adorable teddy bear named Dusty. Dusty lived in Detroit with his owner Daphne, who loved Dusty very, very much when she was a little girl. Daphne took good care of Dusty, too. Always making sure he was fed, bathed, changed, and toted around with her everywhere she went. Daphne always made sure that Dusty was in her arms when her mother and father tucked her into bed at night, too. His most favorite time with Daphne was their daily tea parties. Dusty loved Daphne and was such a happy teddy bear.
Then, one sad day, Daphne didn’t come to visit Dusty, nor did she come the following day. A week went by and Dusty despaired of ever seeing Daphne again. Shortly thereafter, Daphne’s mother, Delphine, relegated Dusty to the attic where he remained for many, many years gathering dust and losing his downy soft fur to the dastardly moths in the attic. Dusty cried and cried and so wished that Daphne would come rescue him from the darkness of the attic. He was so alone and afraid.
A few months later, Dusty saw a moving truck pull into the driveway. Despondently he watched as Daphne’s father, Darrin, and her mother, Delphine directed the movers as to which items should be removed from the house. Dusty was so hopeful that they wouldn’t forget about him all alone in the attic, but, alas, they never came for Dusty. Dusty watched as the last piece of furniture was loaded onto the truck and Daphne, Darrin and Delphine loaded up in the car to follow the moving truck to their new home.
Hearing of Dusty’s sad tale, I am calling upon all my card making tea party friends to help save Dusty and give this sad story a happy ending. I know what wonderful, big hearts you have. Come to Michigan and pick me up along your way to Detroit where we are going to rescue Dusty! Be sure to bring food, clothing, storybooks, extra teddy bears, your sewing kits to help repair the tears in Dusty’s fur, and whatever else you think Dusty may need and let’s show him how much we love him by finding a new home for him! Dusty will be joining us for high tea.

I promise I'll bring a new card later, but I just had to upload this little layout featuring my very first teddy - and her own little storybook . After all, if Dusty was resurrected from the attic, I guess it's OK to resurrect a two-year old project - after I found all the letters that had fallen off, and stuck them on again! It's in keeping with the tea-party.
Thanks for hostessing, Charlene. Does that mean you'll be on your best behaviour and there's no stuff flying around My Teddy and Me
Oh!! Charlene!...I just love this..How you found this adorable t-pot and the story..I have to give you lots of applauds......My head is buzzing with ideas, boy and that takes a lot too I'm going to get started as soon as I can...One fabulous project you have here..Great going here girl.
OMGoodness.....I am so out of it that I didn't realize 'we' were officially listed with the official challenges...wowza......Charlene better not start fliinging stuff around or we'll be kicked out (luv ya Bertie)
Bertie wanted a song for poor, sad, Dusty. She was underhanded and threw down the gauntlet and called into question my abilities as a Twisted Sistah! She so manipulated me by knowing I could not pass up this challenge. I am late due to work and the two holidays: Veterans' Day and the Country Music Awards:
