T on Tuesday

I am joining Elizabeth for T on Tuesday this week... with a mug of frothy coffee!  It is the only coffee of the day... the rest of the time it is tea.... in a cup and saucer, but mid morning I really enjoy that one cup of coffee.
I have been making an envelope to hold some birthday gifts for a friend.
and made up some tags in chipboard and stamped them with quotes...
I think these are Tim Holtz stamps... 
pretty sure that is a Tim Holtz... will go and check... and clean them up! LOL
It's a busy week here this week... tomorrow I am taking Chris to the hospital for some tests and we are also having a new central heating boiler installed...  and Friday is lunch with the girls and Saturday is movie night...


  1. A new boiler?!!!! oh my word, I remember that experience. The "team" of four men that seemed to be ten feet tall and just as wide spent precisely four hours in my house. They removed the old hot water tank, having first drained the system and flushed it clean. They removed all unnecessary pipes put the new boiler on the wall put in new pipes filled the system bled radiators and were gone without even having a cup of tea. They left no mess and I had hardly stopped spinning before they were out the door. I hope you have the same experience.

  2. Hope all goes well with Chris's hospital tests. I love my coffee addicted to Costa's Latte so much so I treated myself to a Tassimo machine. x

  3. Enjoyed seeing the lovely envelope and tags you made. It sounds like the next few days will definitely be busy--I hope the tests go well. Happy T (or coffee) day!

  4. A new boiler sounds like a major disruption! Your coffee looks very decadent! yum!
    Happy T day!

  5. First, I had to applaud you for having a mug instead of a cup and saucer. I guess coffee is more relaxed and tea more formal. Love the bird cage. Is it new? It's a pretty color.

    Second, I hope the tests for Chris go well. What a difficult time to have the boiler installed. I hope he isn't in the hospital long, or you'll miss movie night.

    Not sure what a "boiler" is, but I hope it's more like Ladkyis's experience and less like your kitchen remodel experience.

    So glad to see you for T this Tuesday. Loved the mug and cage you shared with us, too, dear Annette.

  6. That does sound like a busy week. I hope it's not stressful much, and I hope all of it goes smoothly. The end of the week sounds like it's to look forward to :)

  7. beautiful envelope and tags! I so love using quotes and not only have books of them but also have a fairly big collection of stamps too:) Love that bright green cage holding the citrus! Hope all goes well with the boiler and testings. Happy T day!

  8. Love the bird cage with the fruit in it, and you "mug" is a cute one. Yes, I almost bought the heart shaped cups at the antique store.......but I just settled for a picture.....LOL

    Will keep you and Chris on the prayer list, hope everything goes well.

    Busy week ahead of you, lunch with "the girls" is always fun and movie night with the DH is special. What movie are you going to see??

    Happy T-day

  9. Lovely gift you are making.
    Your frothy coffee looks and sounds yummy...when we go out my morning drink of choice is always half caff cappuccino partly because of the foam.
    Best of luck with the testing and don't forget to breathe with all you have scheduled ;-)
    Happy T Day

  10. I'm loving that bird cage! How lovely it is. I could just fancy a frothy coffee, but it's a little late in the day for me; perhaps tomorrow ;)
    Happy T Day :o))

  11. What a lovely idea, a book of tags.
    Hope you enjoyed your coffee and are keeping warm.
