Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #235


Black and white or is it white and black; Geneva's memory has gone slack


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:

Miss Geneva is known far and wide as a seamstress of world acclaim. No one within miles can match her precision, her style, or her ability to dress you so as to hide your less than fine points. All day long she snips, and cuts, and stitches and sings to herself as her blind and half psychotic parrot named Bernadine cackles loudly and announces each entry to the shop with a loud squalk and "Hi'ya Sweetie". And women proudly proclaim that their new dress is an exclusive Miss Geneva one off.

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and Mrs Astoria's annual Valentine's Day Ball will be the place to be. This year the theme is to be black and white. "Oh my word", wonders Miss Geneva. "How will I ever come up with enough variations of black and white. She has orders for dresses in black with white spots, white with black spots, black and white florals, black and white with swirls, black and white toile, black and white harlequin diamonds, black and white stripes, black and white abstract motifs and even some for all black. "Oh my", she thought, "I'm seeing spots and stripes swirling all together everywhere. And to not help matters, Bernadine can be heard all day cackling:
Black and white or white and black
white and black or black and white
cackle, cackle, teehee

The day before Honoria Astoria's fitting is here, and suddenly Geneva can't remember if her dress is to be black with white dots or white with black dots. "Oh dear", she cries as she paces back and forth, to and fro looking for her lists to refresh her memory. She's quite wearing herself into a tizzy of a tall order and still she hasn't solved the dilemma. She daren't call and ask as then everyone will think she's gone soft in the head and if she doesn't figure this out; her little shop could be ruined. Above all the noise in her head, she hears Bernadine cackling away but a different refrain:
Black and white and white and black
white and black and black and white
black and white and white and black
white and black and black and white


By golly Bernadine! I have an idea that will solve this whole mess. I'll use both. Black with small white dots on the bodice will make Honoria's ample bosom less imposing and a billowing skirt of white with black dots will hide her carrot stick legs. And with a brilliant red sash across the bodice and tied in back it will surely be regal enough. That's it ol' girl you've done it. So she raced around the tiny shop grabbing up scissors and thread and fabrics and started cutting, snipping, stitching and snipping some more. Soon she had it together enough for a fitting and just in time too. Honoria would be here within the hour. "Time for a spot of tea" she thought as she admired her handiwork.

Finally Honoria arrived for her fitting and was truly amazed at the regal creation presented to her. "Well, I'll be" she stated. "This is so elegant and stately. I know I told you black with white dots and then changed it to white with black dots. But just look at how you did both and it is stunning. Simply stunning" "I'll be the talk of the town for sure" she said, as she swished and swirled around the fitting room. "This will be the best ball ever" she proclaimed. "I'll be back in 2 days to pick it up". Geneva sank down into a huge rocker and uttered a huge sigh of relief.

Challenge Translation:
Bring black and white; be it spots, dots, florals, swirls, toile, stripes, or diamonds. Just remember to bring a touch of another color so we don't lose you in the 42,000 teapotters swirling around.

EPEC ~ (extra points for extra cookies):
Bring both black with white and white with black for extra cookies. Just remember no cranky psychotic parrots or you go to the back door.

My card has the sentiment on it which reads "You are so Amazing!" And I thought that really described Cindy. I really think it was amazing with all that she did for so many years. I so appreciate you, Cindy. You deserve a PARTY!!!
Sheri, thank you that are now doing the challenges. This challenge has always been my favorite Challenge at Split Coast. The cards have touched so many people's lives.
