Ruby Tuesday ~ Country Village


I took a little trip to Country Village in Bothell, Washington last week. There was an abundance of red to photograph here! Here’s what their website says about the village.


Shop, dine and feed
the chickens …

Over 40 shops and restaurants clustered among beautifully landscaped gardens, ponds, wandering paths, picnic and play areas.

Everything from fabulous home decor and original art, to antiques and innovative toys!


You can even find anything you need for Belly Dancing at the Ottoman Trading Co.

My favorite find on my visit was not red at all but predominately blue. Madame Fifi’s Tea Room and Bakery. I had a lovely lunch topped off with some delicious scones.

For more Ruby Tuesday head over to Maryt’s at Work of the Poet.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site and have replaced my photos with black and grey boxes of ugliness. I’m slowly deleting those boxes from my blog and trying to update so many posts, very frustrating.

  1. Red is classic in any building of Americana. Witness the red barns, houses etc. prevalent in earlier times. Red fits wonderfully.

    Years ago we went to an English style tea house, and was served scones, hot. Thinking about a dollop of cream or jam. Heavenly!

  2. I love the countryside, and how I wish I can see this place, too! Great shots, the town hall is so beautiful!

    HERE is where I posted my Ruby Tuesday photo. Please hop by if you have the time. I will be very appreciated. Thanks!

  3. Oh yes, I think I would like that place. I’ll have to remember this next time I visit my sister in Seattle. Thanks for the tip! Happy Ruby Tuesday.

  4. Love all the red, Ellen! What a lot of fun…that Country Village looks like my kind of place too. Reminds me a lot of place in Lancaster, PA, near where I originally from. Thanks for sharing…great to read your recents post–sorry so slow to get here, but better late than never, yes?! ;o) Happy Day ((HUGS)) Oh, stop by if you can–I’m having some gift giveaway fun at my place this week! :o)

  5. Good morning Ellen,
    I think I need to visit Bothel. Do they have any cottages by the sea? It looks like something out of a fairy tale and I love all the red.
    Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  6. I love how you put the village entrance first, on its own, and then the collage. Makes for an even greater feeling of taking a tour.

    You should e-mail this to the village – you could do their nextr brochure.

  7. Dear Ellen,
    I’d love to visit the red- in- abundance place.
    Looks like a place where one could relax and enjoy oneself, as opposed to the steel,glass & concrete cities.
    You have caught the country atmosphere brilliantly.
    From Felisol
