T stands for Tuesday this and that

Hello Everyone. Thank you for calling in at Jumbled Crafts.

I am a bit late as I had to to the doctors first thing and I have to back again at noon so not much time to do other things today I reckon.

Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover is inviting us to join her for the usual T is for Tuesday get together, I haven't made anything special for the 'drink' related posts this week but I do have a few things to share.

Happy T Day to all the Tea Gang

Just made some coffee-always love the smell of it fershly made

Santa came along our road last night with lots of elves collection got local charities.

                                    Pictures taken in Scarborough last week

If  you ever go to Scarborough be sure to seek out the old market hall. The market is being refurbished and that will mean a lot of the character with be taken away but the if you delved deeper and go for a walk in the cellar it is full of little shops and some even sell craft stuff and are happy to share tales of how they make things. I really hope this doesn't change
The harbour and the castle on top of the hill. Nice walk for miles along the seafront but I like to explore the back streets that climb up to the town I just love the back street that runs parallel to the sea front it is like being in by gone era in parts.

 This was parked outside one of the old cottages Not sure whether it is caravan or a camper van or a bit of both.
This is a very old building that has been modernised. A plaque says it was the oldest pub in Scarborough.

After all the walking we popped into the Orchard Garden cafe for tea and cake. Sorry the cake had gone by the time I took the photograph

Love Chrissie xx


  1. And I was hoping for a piece of cream cake....Lovely post, Chrissie, with so much to see and read about. Scarborough is a lovely place, I always enjoyed visiting there. Thanks for sharing the photos and for showing your coffee and mugs. Hope all goes well at the doc's, hugs, Valerie

  2. Loved seeing your photos of Santa passing by and the ones of Scarborough. Its years since I've been there and the market looks so interesting.
    I will be showing Dave that photo of the converted van. Hope your Dr's visit went well.
    Happy T Day
    Yvonne xx

  3. Lovely to see your Santa Chrissie - I haven't seen one come by here for several years now.
    Love the photos of the old pub and that intriguing camper/caravan or maybe its a 'Caravamper'.
    Never been there but Scarborough looks lovely.
    Hope your day and doctors appt goes well.. Gill xxx

  4. What a really lovely looking town. I especially love the old buildings along with the walk along the sea:) Happy T day!

  5. Thank you for taking me with you to Scarborough - what a lovely town!
    Fabulous photos - thank you for sharing Chrissie!
    Happy rest of T-Day for you!

  6. I see you have a French press. I like the taste of the coffee that comes from them, but hate cleaning the little basket containers each time. That keeps me from owning one. I had one and gave it away because I just couldn't take the constant cleaning each time I wanted to make a pot, which is about four times a day.

    I'm from the states (DUH) and rather ignorant of geography, but is that the same Scarborough the Beatles sing about? The sights are fantastic, and I'm thrilled you took us with you as you showed us the town and harbor. It looks like a wonderful place to visit.

    My other question is, is that the same Santa as before? People who only read your blog on Tuesday will just have to look back and see the lovely story, if they haven't already.

    Yep, I'd have eaten the cream cake, too. I hope Vic got a piece, though.

    Thanks for sharing your lovely photos, your coffee, and your tea with us for T this Tuesday.

  7. Oooo, a French press! And such lovely mugs. You know how to do coffee right :)

    Thanks for taking us on the outing with you. So much to enjoy. Happy T Tuesday!

  8. Fun post, I love walking through different areas of the world with friends!
    Must scooot....friends due any minute to start painting a picture.
    Happy T-day

  9. You didn't leave me a piece of cake? Never mind, I enjoyed seeing Scarborough. I have been there once in horrible weather, several years ago. We walked along the seafront and found it so dingy that we got back in the car and left. But you have shown me a much nicer picture and have redeemed Scarborough for me.
    That cara/campervan is certainly a strange contraption. Looks fun though.
    Thanks for your kind comments, let me know if Vic enjoys the book.
    Happy T day,

  10. oh, scarborough fair... reminds me immediately of the Beatles (now i have an earworm in my head;))
    beautiful mugs... happy t-day!

  11. What a lovely place to visit! And what could be better than a walk on the seafront and I love the old market with the craft stalls in the cellar :-). The old cottages look so charming and full of character too. Tea and a cream cake sounds perfect and your photo made me smile ... it must have been delicious, lol :-). Happy T Day! J :-)

  12. Hi Chrissie, a lovely post today. It's a good few years since I visited Scarborough, and I enjoyed the photos. The caravan/camper looks fabulous, wonder what it's like inside?
    Hope everything went OK at the Dr's.
    Hugs, Avril xx

  13. I'm not a coffee drinker but I just love your mugs. And I always love seeing places and being an armchair traveler, when I can't be there myself, and seeing Scarborough is great. Its interesting here in New England because we have so many places named after placed in England, and its interesting to see what the original places look like. Happy T day. Hugs-Erika

  14. Oh my gosh, look at that old building, the pub - whoa - it is so awesome that it is still standing, renovated and in use. Love it! And I also love the smell of freshly brewed coffee, or a freshly opened can of coffee beans - mmmhmmm-
    Happy T Day!

  15. Strong, white and no sugar please...thank you.xx love your sparkly tiles in the background and your fab photos.xx

  16. Scarborough looks like a lovely place to visit, so many interesting buildings and shops to see. I love that Santa sleigh, fantastic street decor! hugs :)

  17. Excuse me arriving unannounced, Chrissie, but I saw your comment about lace on Valerie's blog, and thought you might be interested in this blog of Sophie's

    1. Thank you John. I will certainly investigate

      Love Chrissie

  18. Scarborough looks absolutely charming. You got some fabulous photos. I laughed at the camper/van/whatever. That is some parking job! I couldn't park what close to a wall without taking lots of paint off my car ;-)

    Happy T Day, Chrissie!

  19. Great photos, glad you had a good day out. I love the camper/caravan too. that is some conversion LOL.
