Ruby Tuesday



Welcome to Ruby Tuesday! The Holidays are right around the corner!

I'd like to show you the Holiday Miniature Train Show at the New York Botanical Garden. There's Ellis Island, Yankee Stadium, the Flatiron Building, brownstones in Manhattan and Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Bridge, and so many other buildings and sights of New York City. All the buildings and decorations (except the trains) are made from plant material.

ENJOY!



I hope you enjoyed my Ruby Tuesday slideshow at the New York Botanical Garden.

Please sign Mr. Linky below and leave a comment. And try to visit the other participants. You know they love visitors.

Oh I love miniature villages. They had one here near Toronto but it recently closed down after something like 30 years...so sad.

This one is quite elaborate! Thanks for the tour :)

I'll be back later when Mr Linky is up & running.

And I'm the one who deleted the comment above - I was under the profile for my cat blog! LOL They don't do ruby tuesday! HAHA

A happy Ruby Tuesday to you

Your place looks pretty frosty... but it'll redden your cheeks. Then again, so will skiing naked. (Or so I'm told at least.)

I've got a flashback going this week. Back to when the weather was quite a bit warmer!

Decided to post sans Mr. Linky, because I have to go out for a few hours, and also because I'm rarely this organized and ready.

I don't see Mr. Linky too. I wish I can go there and take lots of photos. My entry is red, round and hairy!

Jan said...

Amazing, both your slide show and the Holiday Miniature Train Show. I'm so glad you were able to go, and create this.

Sylvia K said...

Ah, good to see the man! Mr. Linky, that is! Thanks!

Ralph said...

The trains make for a perfect holiday display. When we were little, we had the Lionel trains setup around the tree. Loved to travel that loop with the classic set, and not plastic, but steel from the 1940s. The locomotive must have weighed about 5 lbs - massive. Nice sisplay!

DrillerAA said...

Absolutely wonderful. That is an event I would love to see. I'd also like to see the White House decorated for Christmas. Have a wonderful Ruby Tuesday.

Gmj said...

The landscapes are beautiful. For a second, they looked as if they're made from chocolate to me :P
Happy Ruby Tuesday Mary :)

EastCoastLife said...

Those buildings are so pretty! And they are made from plant materials!
A lot of work must have gone into it. Looking at these miniature buildings makes me want to have one such display in my garden!

Kay said...

Yikes, you all are so fast! It’s still Monday over on this coast….

I like the trains Mary! Makes me think of my dad.

Mine is up… and this time I actually did a few ‘on subject” shots of actual holiday stuff.

And then a few red tinged party pics.

Tis the season!

Ladynred said...

The train show is wonderful. What a fun place to visit.

Gattina said...

I wished I could see that in real !

Sara Chapman in Seattle said...

I like the slideshow, but my computer is running so slooowly it's a little frustrating. The snowflakes are neat! I posted two photos this week; couldn't resist the Rubiness.

Mar said...

That was very enjoyable! and reminded me of my husband's miniature train. It has seen better days and it is now packed away in the attic...
Happy Tuesday!!

storyteller said...

I've missed participating recently but have managed to share holiday 'rubies' this morning as I head up stairs to get ready for my PSE6 class. I'll be visiting later this afternoon or tomorrow depending on how the day goes. We're happy for the rain in So Cal (finally) but it IS wreaking havoc with our traffic.
Hugs and blessings,

Judith said...

how sweet - I love the little train. Judyx

Dianne said...

I love that they're all made from plant materials!

Baba's Blog .. Babies Are Special said...

Everyone should have tons of red things to share at this time of year..I am sharing two different Santa,s on display in my home..

Melli said...

WOW! That is amAzing! How do they DO that? It's a cute little red train - perfect for today... but I really do wonder how they create those buildings from plants?

Terri said...

My Ruby Tuesday is non-holiday-ish this week. Just for a change!

Askew To You said...

I love minatures. Someday, I'd like to make little doll houses with my girls. A train set under the tree, circling, for some reason I've always wanted one of those.

Lovely photos, Mary!

Cherie said...

I love your slideshow of the garden. Makes me want to go see it live and in person. :)

bellamocha said...

Piece of Mine said...

I'm late! Hope I didn't miss so much fun. Happy RT!

Terry said...

Dear Mary T Sometimes this lap top gets me mad!
I left a comment here Tuesday telling you I would return and some how it got lost in Cyberspace. That has happened so many times!
Anyways, I just want to tell you how fascinated I was with your slide show. It is so nice! I couldn't watch it for too long yesterday because I had a few appointments..
I hope you put another one in!
Have a great week...Love Terry

Robin said...

Thanks for the visit and the kind words Mary, and of course you can link to my Hannukah post next week :).
