Ruby Tuesday



Last week Mo of Manic Monday suggested the word OFFICE for the prompt for his meme. I was going to do my home office until he suggested Obama and the Presidential Oath of Office. I blogged about the Oath of Office. because it was so appropriate for last week.

So today I'm going to show you my home office because there are a lot of RED things there.

Here's the collage I made:

Click on the picture to embiggen.

My office has a lot of books. That's an understatement, eh? There are so many books I have to double shelve them, ones in front and in back. I also have a TV in my office and it's ON ALL THE TIME! It's background noise and keeps me company while I work.

Why don't you look around your office. Do you see a lot of RED? Why don't you post photos of your office for our next Ruby Tuesday.

I'm in Florida for the next few days so I won't be able to visit you right away but I hope you'll leave a comment and sign Mr. Linky. When I get back I'll be around to visit! :)

Bet you're happy to be going somewhere warm!

I missed the memo on office shots, but when you're a photographer -- even a hobbyist -- isn't the whole world pretty much your "office"?

Okay, it's a dodge, but you gotta admit... it does have some truth to it.

Besides, my office is BOR-ing.

I love this collage. It's my kind of office... I recently made the decision to give a lot of my remaining books away to the local school and public libraries. Have a good time in Florida. I don't know how cold it is in the city but we have been as low as zero here and I'm not liking it at all.

There's lots of red scattered about! :)

Enjoy your trip!

There sure are lots of pops of red in your office Mary! I hope you are enjoying your time in the sun. Have fun!!

Patti said...

Your office looks interesting, Mary!

And there iare lots of reds to see here.

I made a pink cat toy more red so I could use it (cheating??)

Patti said...

that should say "are"

I hate typos!

Napaboaniya said...

Your office sure has got lots of bits and pieces of red in it :P
Real festive colors for the Lunar New Year too! :P

Your EG Tour Guide said...

One can NEVER have too many books, Mary. Lucky for me my husband thinks so too. ;-)

Florida, eh? Have a great time!

Love the new layout!

Carletta said...

Hi Mary,
Have a wonderful vacation!
We'll miss you too.

I have a 50's red kitchen to show you when you get some time.

Bring home lots of reds!

Kerslyn said...

uh..oh..I miss office setting.

I love your collage, Teacher Mary...your home office speaks a lot about you...with lots of reds.

Babs (Beetle) said...

At first glance I thought that was a single photo of you office, and thought "How does she find anything?" Ha ha!

My office is my lounge and I suppose there is quite a bit of red.

Dora said...

Interesting collage! :)

My RT post is about the breakfast we had for 1st day of Chinese New Year.

Happy Lunar New Year to all those who celebrate it. :)

Hi everyone! Mary, you just keep on having fun, we'll be fine here.

I have some fun "facts" (or are they?) about the relationship between Disney and Coca-Cola....

I wanna go :(.

Terri said...

I thought the same thing as Babs, didn't realize it was a collage at first! Man, that woman has a messy office, I thought! Sure is lots of red there.

Arlene said...

Have fun with in the warm weather, Mary!

Nice theme for next week. I hope i won't forget it.

Btw, anyway have eaten a whole and raw of my entry today? If you have tried it or not, please say so. Though there are some nationalities that they eat this type of food just easily just like eating peanuts.

Eaton Bennett said...

Have a great holiday, Mary, hopefully there will be lots of red to snap while you're away.
I wish I had an office to keep my mess in...I think I would paint a wall red. :)

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Sorry I didn't see that there was a theme for this week until I came to view your RT. I hope you have a great time in Florida!!

Dianne said...

what a great office Mary!!

happy warm weather!

Julie said...

Wow! Now THAT'S an office. Very cool collage.

Travis said...

I keep the tv on when I work too, except a lot of the time I have the sound off. My favorite channels to have on while I work are Food Network, HGTV, and ESPN.

Well, any kind of sports really.

Gattina said...

Wow a lot of books, you should have a seperate room as library, lol !
Have wonderful sunny, warm holidays !

Greyscale Territory said...

Great collage! A sense of bright "busy-ness" in your office! My study used to be just like this, spilling over into hallway and lounge-room. Then came the major clean-up when I moved!

Catherine said...

I thought you were occupying illegally a librairy or a book store to live in ! What a nice perspective it would be , according me.
It gives you a colored life as ususal. I can just see you in this office.
But for now, make the best of your time in Florida. Make bright and colored pictures, Mary. See you soon.

EastCoastLife said...

Home office! I can do that! I have lots of red in it too!

I too have a lot of books and I'm still buying more. I hope my son and grandkids would treasure them. :)

Robin said...

Hope you're having lots of fun in the sun Mary.

I don't have a proper office, my kitchen island is the closest I've got - so you got a shot of something completely unrelated on my island, and a week post here to tie it all together LOL.

Nicole said...

That's a lovely office :)
And lots of Ruby indeed.

I don't have an office, so I can't show one :(

It will be a simple flower for me, I'm afraid ;)

Cookie said...

hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation :)

That's a cool collage!

Enjoy the sun, and come back radiating enough warmth for the rest of us!

...But don't turn red! :)

I must say that it sure is a blue Ruby Tuesday without ya'....Love Terry
