Ruby Tuesday

 

A favorite author of mine is George MacDonald and this is one of his stories that I really loved. It just happens to be Ruby bound so I’m sharing it.

And I saw these pretty little Ruby Flowers (Sweet Williams, thanks Lovella) at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens today and I’m throwing them into the Ruby post, too!

 

For more Ruby Tuesday Posts visit our lovely hostess Maryt at Work of the Poet.

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage. They have blacked out all those photos on my blog posts. OH BOTHER! I’m slowly cleaning up my posts.

  1. Oh my goodness, that copy of Sir Gibby is stunning. I used to have a beautifully bound copy of his sermons as well as of The Light Princess and other Stories (they were bound by Johanneson Printing and Publishing and that has a similar feel.) Beautiful.

  2. Wow, what a beautiful copy of the book, Ellen! That’s quite a treasure there.

    I love the flowers too!

    I always enjoy your Ruby Tuesday posts. Come to think of it, I enjoy just about everything you post! 🙂

    Have a great night!

  3. Beautiful bound books – today it’s mostly paper covers. I love the embossed ones.

    Those flowers are beautiful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen any quite that color before.

  4. I’ve not heard of this author, and my maiden name is McDonald, originally MacDonald. Yikes

    The flowers are stunning.

    Lovely Ruby Tuesday choices.

  5. There’s just something truly wonderful about the way those old books are bound. I’m not familiar with Sir Gibby and I feel like I’ve missed out on something wonderful.

    Beautiful flowers too.

  6. Oh those Ruby flowers look like Sweet Williams .. .and George MacDonald. . .I’ve not read any of his books for some time .. . that would be a good summer read.

  7. ellen, two marvelous photos! I’ve not read George MacDonald but the Ruby red leather binding is gorgeous! And the Sweet William are a wonderful red! 🙂

  8. The flowers are beautiful with their various shades of red. I am not familiar with the author, but that crest with ruby highlights is outstanding!
