Ruby Tuesday Curios

A bit of ruby cheer while waiting for spring.  I can always count on my little glass fronted curio cabinet to lend some color to brighten the day.

Sunlight certainly does enhance the red color of the glass!

A TOUCH OF RED

They say that just one touch of red
Will put big, bold thoughts in your head.
So scarlet’s for you,
And burgundy too,
And cardinal and carmine—‘nuff said!

They are so pretty, and there isn't any color as cheerful as red, well, yellow comes in 2nd? Have a nice day!

How lovely. I have a rooster (two actually) that looks rather like that from my hubby's grandma. The second rooster from my grandma is much more, um, antique. :)

Has spring arrived for you? We got a foot of snow Sunday/Monday & more on the way.

Happy Ruby Tuesday, M&M! Those are pretty red glasses. Aren't we fortunate of have some of the old things!

I am very slow today. Been busy and I just opened your second comment on one of my London posts.

Yes, Felisol and I were there at the same time. She was there when I cam I think (February 14) and left while I was still there. We left on March 8, making it a three week stay.

And lastly, how is our 15-year old fellow doing? You posts telling of him are refreshing as we realize how great our God really is! (You the MOM!!!)
