T stands for……..the real sort out!

Having sorted through my scraps - which I must admit was enjoyable it's now time to get down to it and REALLY sort out my room! At the minute my desk is piled high, the floor is littered with boxes and bags and I am trying to be ruthless!

We haven't been out much, although we did take our eldest son out for coffee before a visit to Creative Recycling. He has plans on setting up his workshop to use recycled materials to create some art, as hoped he was inspired by the visit. 
As for the drinks we had…I forgot to take a photo so I have taken a photo of our Winter mugs,(the Christmas ones have been put away)for a visit to Bleubeard and Elizabeth's for T Stands For Tuesday

This was taken at 4p.m. this afternoon and it was already quite dark as we have had another of those grey days!I used my phone camera as it has a torch on it too so I could get a reasonable photo!
As we are here for
I thought you might like to see this that I found in a magazine a while ago.
I think it was advertising a kettle maybe as there are similar advertisements for other appliances, but I had only cut off the bottom of the page! I think this goes for my own preferred mug of coffee too! 

I am hoping that now I have made a good start it won't be long before my desk is clear enough to play again!

So far our internet connection seems to be holding on so I should be able to visit more easily! 

Thanks for looking, Chris

I love your mugs-and oh that is a weakness of mine. But I am also trying to purge and all so -I must say no-well, unless....
Happy T day!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

It was good to read that they may have actually got your internet connection fixed.

LOVED the mugs, including the night watchman. That was adorable.

I've been sorting, but haven't started purging yet. I keep finding things I want to make, so I keep saving everything. Of course, I suspect my craft room is marginally neater than yours sounds.

Thanks for sharing your mugs and that cool sign you cut from an ad with us for T this Tuesday. I look forward to seeing what your son makes from recycled materials, too.

Helen said...

Like your mugs! I just have the same mugs I use all year round.... although I have cupboards full of the things...
Good luck with your sort out.

Glad your connection has been fixed. Love the wordy-tea cup, great idea. Happy T day, must rush, got an appointment at the doc's- Hugs, Valerie

What a fab idea - this word teacup looks great!Super that your internet connection is fixed again!
Happy T-DAY- both of your cups are just lovely! Happy sorting out! I do it as well - always good when we do it - we find so many older, forgotten unfinished projects and have new ideas!

Happy T Day Chris

Good Luck to your son I would have loved to do that as a business when I was younger. The trouble is you keep so much stuff every corner of the place is full of things with great ideas and intentions and not enough years to do it all.

The mugs are wonderful

Love Chrissie xx

Sounds like you're busy sorting out your craft space :-). It was such a great idea to take your son to Creative Recycling for inspiration, it looks an amazing place :-). Pretty mugs and the advert art is so clever - Happy T Day! J :-)

Sandy said...

No what you mean about tackling the craft room -- I have been tackling our whole house. It sounds like most of us have the same problem -- too much stuff! I keep trying to get rid of things but it is sooooo hard!

Halle said...

Seems like everyone is in a sorting mood! I've been doing some of that myself. What sort of recycle art does your son do?

jinxxxygirl said...

Good luck with the purging in your craft room, that sounds like that will be quite a job. I love your two mugs today especially the one with the words added.
Happy T day

Chris I can't read what you wrote because I have a weak prescription in my glasses and the blue color in the background didn't help much; I hope to get my new glasses by Friday.I love your mugs and the ad is very interesting!Happy T-Day!

Krisha said...

I keep putting off my start date for my craft room whole house now needs it!

LOVE the coffee advertisement, what luck to find that.
Happy T-day

Lisca Meijer said...

What lovely mugs. I love the owl. And a beautiful advert for a change.
Happy T-Day,

Divers and Sundry said...

Those mugs would find a happy home here :) I'm a sucker for a good mug and somehow can always find room for more.

It's great how the image could be so easily separated from the ad. What a great picture! Happy T Tuesday :)

Cleaning out your stahs feels so good - especially when it's finished and you know where everything is. At least for a little while when the stash grows again. Sometimes I feel like Sisyphus pushing that boulder up the hill every day - lol. Lovely mugs and that advert is really cool!
Happy T Day, Chris! XOX Eileen

Dianne said...

what adorable coffee the images on both of them! Good luck with the clear-out...I really should be following your example! happy Tuesday! ♥

johanna said...

that Cup with the words Looks gorgeous, i would have saved it, too!
yes, cleaning is a good Feeling - but it normally doesn´t last for Long;) if i only could put things back to their places immediately, but obviously that is not possible;)
good luck with the Internet, so boring if it does not work.
happy belated t-day!
