It’s time to visit Mary at Work of the Poet for Ruby Tuesday. Thanks for being a great hostess Mary! Christmas time is great for finding ruby all over the place.
I took all these photos in New Mexico the weekend of Thanksgiving except for the kissing Mr. and Mrs. Claus. Those cuties are sitting on my kitchen counter. My oldest son and I were in the “Land of the Sun” for my middle son’s graduation and we didn’t have to wear sunglasses once. It even snowed on us!! I was real excited when I spotted that Christmas Hydrant. The signs just made me chuckle…
Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

Awww … what a sweet FESTIVE holiday mosaic! My mom had a kissing salt & pepper shaker like these but I have no clue what happened to them. Do they paint the hydrants especially for the holidays?
Hugs and blessings,
My Ruby Tuesday
Lovely kissing couple! Love it so much.
You Got a Posty
That theatre is stunning, that ruby marquee is art-deco style and beautiful. As you note, the Christmas colors on the fire hydrant are a treat. Mr. and Mrs. Claus have seen a lot, and he couldn’t do what he does without her support!
I really like the theater marquee. Excellent work.
hahahaha i like that “I’m a queen… Said so”
Check out our Ruby Tuesday Travel from the land of the morning calm to the land of the free.
I love the couple ornaments and the postage made me laugh haha.
Here’s my Snowy Chinese RT
Oh, cute — Ellen! 🙂
LOL to “This is as Merry as we Get.” Very cute.
Love this collage Ellen!
Even though each image is wonderful on its on merit.
The hydrant is perfect, I smiled at both signs, and love the old theatre marquee and the vintage kissing Mr. and Mrs. Santa would look just perfect on my table. 😉
I love that Santa and Mrs. Claus. How cute that is. These are all wonderful. Happy RT 🙂
Cute collage. It must be the cold spell we’re having here in Oregonthat makes me love the curmudgeon-like “merry as we get” the most. that’s sort of how I felt today. I’ll get better though ;>) Thanks for sharing.
isn’t that a coincidence……my panty hose say I’m a Queen too! course it’s hard for them to get the word out to everyone else….perpetually stuck in the very bottom of my underwear/sock drawer like they are…..maybe I should let them out once in awhile so they can tell everyone else I’m a Queen and then I can start getting my way in life….whaddaya think?
Lovely mix of photos, thanks for sharing:)
You found a lot of cute things for Ruby Tuesday and they look nice in the mosaic. My favorite is the Christmas hydrant!
Very sweet ruby-red goodness, Ellen… the ornaments are especially fun! Happy Day :o) ((HUGS))

That hydrant is perfect for Christmas. I wonder if it’s always those colors? Lots of cute red signs, too.
Red certainly seems to be everywhere!
What a wonderful mosaic…festive colors and unusual signs…love the queen/pantyhose one! I just looked at your previous post about the tea house in Washington…I’m not all that far…maybe hubby and I can take a little trip there and have tea!
I know global warming is a hoax, but I’m sure wondering about a global freezing! We actually had snow here yesterday,first time in about 12 years…I’m posting it for white wednedsay…it was glorious!!!
Hope you have a wonderful day!

I did smile with your sign, “This is as merry as we get.” Thanks for sharing.
