Default MMTPT463~June 6, 2017~Shipwreck on the River Pokie

Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and Challenge #463


Shipwreck on the River Pokie


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: Ahhh...Spring is here finally. And that means lots of sunshiny days, balmy and sometimes wet weather, lovely evenings, and beautiful flowers everywhere. The townsfolk of Daffydilly take this time of yr very seriously as this is when their little town shines brightly. And not just from the sun either. No, this is when 42,000 daffodils on the shores of Lake OkiePokie will be in bloom and folks from all over come to see them. Why it has even been said that this mass of flowers can even be seen on satalite pictures of the area.

2: Folks come from all over and some of that shine is from the sun glinting off all the shiny and glossy surfaces of the fancy boats that cruise down the river Pokie and on into Lake OkiePokie to get a close up view of the flowers. And some of the shine likely comes from the sun glinting off the mirrored sunglasses of the not-so-famous people trying not to be recognized, but Shhhhh...don't tell anyone that you saw them here.

3: Then there are lots and lots an lots of folks who drive in and then walk along the walkways through the gardens to get a really close up look. (and to people watch too) These folks will be arriving soon and the townsfolk have hung out all the bright yellow welcome signs and cleaned up the paths and raked the beds. Oh, everything is looking really good for an excellent showing this yr.

4: Mrs. Daffodoodle has known of this spectacle for some time and has always intended to check it out but there has always been this show or that convention that she just HAD to go to and the timing has never been right until this yr. She actually is in the area and she has had her boats captain shine up the ship and is ready to sail down to see this beautiful exhibit. Wait a minute!......Ship?.....did she say ship? Honey, this is little ol' Lake OkiePokie not Lake Superior. You are going to end up a wreck for sure. The Pokie river isn't deep enough for that thing your bringin in. And you will surely block the way of all the other daffodil lovers.

5: RUTROH!! This could be a real problem. We need a smaller boat for sure. One that is small in size but grand in style to be acceptable for herself Mrs. Daffodoodle.



Challenge Translation:

Cheerful and bright, daffodils in sight. We need to deliver this cheer in a big way

Destination Station:

This week the Teaparty bus is headed to IL. If you would like a destination for your card, how about sending it to Jean. She was brought to our attention by SCSr Serenity_Stamper

to find out why as well as get the address to mail your card, please visit post 568 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 MMTPT463 challenge gallery

Be sure to you use KEYWORD MMTPT463 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.

Thank you, in advance, for your kindness. I am here with mom (until Thursday so I may not get to see them in person but my sister (also a stamper - DORISONTHELAKE on SCS) will deliver them to the hospital. Mom is in rehab doing Occupational Therapy. Her heart and lungs are declining but she has full faculties, and a kind heart and grateful spirit. My kind regards, Lela

Here's my card for Jean using my favorite flower:

I noticed she is a Chicago Cubs fan. I'm sending along a Cubs bumper sticker that I got in Chicago right after the Cubs won the World Series!

I have been so overwhelmed with life that I didn't come out here and say thank you so very much for sending cards to my mom. She told me they really cheered her up and she wanted me to come out and say a special thank you. Mom kept declining, and she has now made her transition as of September 14th. A belated, heartfelt thank you for your kindness.
