My dear friend
I am making a MAGIC TEA.. One cup fills the heart with creativity, kindness, love and magic!..... so what ever you you would like to add, please do. Maybe Mozes and Miss Moussie have something put away.

Ok, I am laughing so hard, and the music is fabulous, and BEBE is TOO CUTE FOR WORDS and Tea Rat is here with LOVE POTION NUMBER NINE!!!!!!!! He says that THIS is the potion HE WANTS to spike Miss Moussie's tea with! See, Bebe is his little sister, but Tea Rat LOVES HER LITTLE FROCK!!!!!!

OK, Rattus is at the UNIVERSITY TONIGHT, but when I go to get him, I will insist that he comes here with his take on the YAK!!!!

This is too fun...we are back with the SILLINESS OF THE SEASON!!!!!!!

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Love potion number 9????? Yipeeeee!
This will be SOME POTION...

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

YES, LOVE POTION NUMBER NINE. Can Little Sister Bebe come up with a special concoction that will help Tea Rat win the love(s) of his life???

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...


Angelsdoor * Penny said...

I will do my best! Have Rattus bring his potion to add to the mix, we shall see. Maybe TeaRat will have the love of his life sooner than we think.
Pink lady is shy as always.. Hope is does not burn those little ears.

Sweetness! Love you all..

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

LOVE POTION NUMBER NINE.....oh yeah...says TEA RRRRRRAT! Oh oh...Tea Rat just "started kissing everything in sight....A COP!"

So guess where Tea Rat is now...back in THE BIG HOUSE!!!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

So Bebe dearest little enchantress...can you come up with a potion to get Tea Rat out of the Hoosegow????

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

I will add a little more YAK in mix... I think that will do it. When in the sam hill will TeaRAt learn to watch his P's and Q's ? I hope this works....

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

OK, RATTUS is going to take your VILE of VILE POTION to reverse this spell of "KISSING EVERYTHING IN SIGHT and a cop on 34th and VINE!"

OK Rattus....don't...DON'T DRINK THAT....oh oh....

Hello dear friends. I was giving a lecture on how cheese helped to build the Roman Empire, when someone walked up to me and said he had an important message for you all in Nowhere. His small letter appears below. I remain yours,
Rattus Scribus

Dear Nowhereians:

I see that you are attempting to master the mystic arts. This is laudable, but I also notice that you use a lot of Yak in your potions.

There's Yak when you make a potion. Then there's Yak when you counteract a potion. Yak for this. Yak for that. Yak, Yak, Yak.

This causes me no small consternation because you see I am a Yak: a large shaggy haired ox with long curvy horns from the the highlands of Tibet; and you see, well, we are an endangered species.

So could you please find a substitute for Yak in your potions. Maybe some nice keilbasa sausage, or alfalfa sprouts with mashed yeast.

It would take a load of my mind.

Respectfully yours,
P.S., Don't talk back.

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

HAAAHAAAAHAAAAAAA!!! Oh you funny YAK YOU! You gave me a belly laugh!!
Ok.. How about if I add a little
Jackalope? I can travel to Southeast Crowbar to pick some up.. Be right back
respectfully yours,

Ruben Rivera said...

Jackalope, schmakalope. As long as it's not Yak. Sure.


Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

TEA RAT: OH NOW....Let's GET GOING HERE...I GOTTA GET OUT OF THIS MESS! Put in some Jackalope and let's GET A MOVE ON!!! It smells in this cell....

Christel Hutson said...

wow, a love potion you say? I was thinking eye of newt..or dragons blood..tis the season you know..maybe hair of wart..or wart of toad?..teehee who knows what we will have in that potion before it's all over! Here, Bebe sweetheart..I have half a red licorice stick..that'll sweeten the potion! Hazel.

Penny, the illustrations is darling! Hello ewveryone xoxo Christel

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Ok... This is the plan... I know TeaRat is ready to pull his tail off. He want's outa there!
I will add the Jackalope, Wart of the toad and a stick of red Licorice and if that won't do it...... TIME FOR RATTUS to break him out of the BIG HOUSE!
p.s. mum says thank you Christel!

Ruben Rivera said...

Dear friends,

I know we're trying to get Tea Rat out of the Hoosegow, but isn't a whole Jackalope a little over kill?

I'm not an expert on sorcery, potions and incantations. But the last time I heard someone add an entire Jackalope to a potion they almost blew a hole in the fabric of the universe.

Important safety tip. Easy on the Jackalope.


Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

TEA RAT: Hazel dearest, THANK YOU for chiming in....while RATTUS pontificates and continues to go between JACKALOPES AND YAKS,I am brewing here myself! My heavens, what is that SMELL in this cell????? AND YES, I AM READY TO PULL OUT MY TAIL!!! How did I get here?????


I wanna go home!

Ruben Rivera said...

Magistrate: Bailiff, please swear in the accused.

Bailiff to Tea Rat: Do you promise to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, or face the wrath of the whatever from high atop the thing?

Tea Rat: Rats never lie.

Magistrate: I will hold you in contempt if you do not answer the question.

Tea Rat: I find your legal system, your jails, and you yourself, your honor to be...

Rattus: (Whispering) Psssst! Tea, you old boob, just play along. We're here to rescue you. Even Yaks and Jackalopes have given of themselves to rescue you.

Tea Rat: I promise to tell the truth.

Magistrate: Very well. Before we get started with the trial, let me just take a sip of my tea here. Hmmmm. Bailiff?

Bailiff: Yes my lord. (Whispering: ♪ ♫ Yakalope licorice...letus Teaus go-us ♪ ♫)

Magistrate: Bailiff, this tea tastes funny. And what was that you just said?

Bailiff: Oh nothing, my lord. You were saying about your tea? (♪ ♫ Yakalope licorice...letus Teaus go-us ♪ ♫)

Magistrate: I taste red licorice, and I swear I can taste...

Bailiff: Yes my lord? (♪ ♫ Yakalope licorice...letus Teaus go-us ♪ ♫)

Magistrate: I know it sounds crazy but I can taste Yak and Jackalope too. Ahhhh! Suddenly I'm feeling light and free, like child on its birthday.

Bailiff: Wonderful. Don't you also feel like setting someone free? (♪ ♫ Yakalope licorice...letus Teaus go-us ♪ ♫)

Magistrate: Yes, that's exactly how I feel. Tea Rat, all charges are dropped. You are free to go.

Everyone: YAAAY!

Tea Rat: Thank you, your honor. And thank you, Bailiff Bebe.

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

TEA RAT IS FREE.... Let's dump this potion and have some TEA!

Ruben Rivera said...

Thank you everyone for helping to set me free. There will be a party tonight at Witsend with tea and goodies for everyone. NO POTIONS PLEASE.

Tea Rat

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Oh waht fun! I will be there with bell's on!

Burlap Luxe said...

Amazing art Christel,
Love your art and story, taking me to a place that creates for all who dream.

I am going to go create some mice, for they want to join in with your brewing.

Love all that you inspire, the music is magical over here.
Thank you my sweet friend for your visits and comments that encourage my art of creating and what is so in me to create.

See you soon dear friend!
Getting geared up for our show, start creating so you can join in on our holiday performance :)

Jacqueline said...

Pippit: Oh my Gretta, we are days late and several potions short. Looks like everyone has left for Witsend. We are running behind, missed all the fun and didn't get even a sip of that potion!

Gretta: Go to the ends of the earth without me dear one, I'm plump and full up to my spines with your pumpkin pie.
