Ruby Tuesday



Today we're celebrating our

One Year Anniversary of Ruby Tuesday!

You all should be proud how successful you've made this meme! I promised last week that I would give PRIZEs to 3 people who make a comment today (I can't count on Mr. Linky but please sign if it's there) and post a Ruby Tuesday post.

You can see Prize 1 below:

Posted by Picasa
This Prize contains:

1. A journal with "New York: The Wonder City" written on a red cover
2. A Four-Leaf Clover Kit
3. An Itty-Bitty Buddha in a red box
4. A Barnes & Noble reusable book bag
5. A bookmark

Prize 2:


A suede journal (240 pages)

Prize 3:


Pocket Memo Briefcase with pen

I will post the winners late Wednesday May 27. I'll notify each winner on their own blog.

The winners should then send me their snail mail address (home address) and I'll send them their prize.



Thank you all so much for making this past year so enjoyable! I love going around to Ruby Tuesday players (I know I don't always get to everyone; I wish I could).

Happy anniversary Mary, I'm delighted to be a part of what you've created here.

Patti said...

Congratulations, Mary, on a whole year of Ruby Tuesday fun!

I really enjoy participating in this meme. We all seem to be looking for something red every chance we get. ;-)

Ralph said...

This is truly a happy occasion! I so often try to think of what makes a Ruby Tuesday...all the time!. Reds are all around us, and this meme is what makes me see red just about everywhere!

Happy aniversary Mary creator of my favorite memes. May RT continue for many more years!

Terri said...

Happy birthday Ruby Tuesday! I've sure enjoyed myself this year. Thanks for your delightful hosting, Mary.

KitchenMaus said...

Pleasure's mine, I enjoyed hunting food with red on it! I did mostly fruits but my faves would be those related to baking!

Congratulations! Lets enjoy more years to come!

Mojo said...

This being a holiday I almost forgot it was Monday. Never mind an anniversary! It's been a fun year (or part of a year for me). Can't wait to see what happens next.

Jim said...

Wow, this is neat! Having a continuing reality post grow so fast and have so many paricipants is special! Happy First Anniversary.
It is a fun post for us to make and read, seems there are always RED items waiting to get snapped and viewed.

Thank you too for having the contest. If the First Prize Winner doesn't like the NYC book, I have one I would trade. It is a pictorial of NYC, all photos taken by air.

Happy Anniversary to Ruby Tuesday.

Leora said...

The prizes in the first group are amusing. Does "New York the Wonder City" have something inside? Or is it a blank journal?

Happy Anniversary, Mary. Thank you for creating this fun meme. Red and Tuesday will never be the same again for those who participate. Love how we get such international and varied posts.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Congratulations for having a great idea and then sharing it with the rest of us! I LOVE playing every (or almost every) week. ;-)

Happy anniversary Mary! I always enjoy finding things to post for my Ruby Tuesdays, and you inspired me to create my own photo meme.

Keep up the good work!

Felisol said...

Happy birthday to teach Mary and to Ruby Tuesday.
By now you probably are celebrating
your 30+ (Terry's suggestion).
Hope you have a great day.

Being allowed to participate in Ruby Tuesday has been a joy and an inspiration.
Hope you will continue hosting this meme for a long, long time.

From Felisol

One year congratulation to you - good work of you.

I just found it recently and I have enjoy it so far - it is good to know that always on Tuesdays it is something red.
Today I have been looking in my garden, hope it is not to much sex...

Ralph wrote... " makes me see red..". In sweden to see red - means that you are angry does it mean that in English also?

Have fun and hope to see you next week.

Hildegarde said...

Thank you for hosting this ever inspiring theme that connects so many nice people and congrats !!!!

Auntie E said...

I am glad I found your Meme. It has made me think about the photos I take. Even looking into a new camera. I use to work for Eastman Kodak and really liked taking photo. My child home had a Developing Room in the basement,Dad taught us how to use it. Some time in the 90's I lost the desire to really take pictures. Now I have acquired it back! Happy 1 year Anniversary Mary. May there be many more!!

Martha (FL) said...

I'm in for the week! Now back to the business of packing up my life! Happy 1st anniversary of Ruby Tuesday. Red has long been my favorite color, so it is easy to come up with photos to share!

Regina said...

Happy Anniversary! Miss participating on this fabulous meme.

SouthLakesMom said...

Thank you Mary for inspiration and challenge. I'll never look at the color red quite the same way again!

Happy Birthday!

Mo said...

Congrats on the anniversary of Ruby Tuesday, Mary! I know I haven't participated every single week, but I know I've been around since the beginning!
Today, I went for something totally different (I was playing with some of the extra photo-enhancing effects on Picnik via Flickr) and came up with an image that turned one geranium blossom into a psychedelic groovilicious pic. At least I think so!
Poor Mr. Linky still seems to be on the fritz, so here is a link to It's A Blog Eat Blog World
Cheere & Congrats on the Meme-aversary!

Happy Anniversary to Ruby Tuesday. I'm late getting going with my post and not too thrilled with it, but couldn't let the anniversary go past without participating.
