Ruby Tuesday

**UPDATE: GO OVER TO DRILLER'S PLACE TO SEE HIS NEW RUBY TUESDAY BADGES.



Today I have a little gift for my participants. I'd like to send to THE FIRST TEN Commenters (yikes!?) today a postcard of the Little RED Lighthouse at the foot of the George Washington Bridge.

this is what it looks like:




If you're selected I'll ask you to e-mail your snail mail address
and I'll send this postcard to you with a personal message just for you.





Then

How about you sending a post card to me from your city or country?

A store-bought one or one made from one of your own photographs?

I'd love that! Postcards from around the country and the world! Whoooo! Whooo!

So what d'ya think?

DON'T FORGET TO SIGN MR. LINKY and leave a comment!

I will think it through so that we can all receive cards from each person who'd like to play... I'll get back to you!

I love that idea of a post card. Love the All red Lighthouse. i have been to New York but don't recall that one. Ruby Tuesday's has been a joy for me. I really love visiting all the bloggers and seeing their photographs. It makes me want to get a better camera, maybe for Christmas.

Love the Little Red Lighthouse, MaryT! Cool idea.

Marites said...

oh my! i'd love to have that. it's so pretty! my RT is up already:)

Joyce said...

Hi, Mary,
May I play, even though I don't do Ruby Tuesday? I would love to receive and send a postcard!

Ralph said...

It is hard to believe in this view the lighthouse is sitting beneath the mighty GWB. Harder even to fathom that we are in a densely packed urban area. The edit touches on the brilliant red lighthouse look like an oil on canvas. Lovely!

Queen-Size funny bone said...

yeah I made into the top ten....

Carletta said...

I love the idea! I think you might have missed my sepia post last week. I actually made a card with my sepia picture. It's a hobby I've had for years. I'd love to send you a homemade card. :)
You did wonderful processing on your pic!

DrillerAA09 said...

Okay, new badges are ready. Come one come all. Pick up a new Ruby Tuesday badge, especially if you're a gearhead.

Thom said...

I love that Lighthouse. It's excellent. Happy RT

Jamie said...

Well I was number 11 on the LInky and number ten on the comments. Send me your address, and I'll send you a really nice card.

Patti said...

Boo I missed out on the first 10. :-(

I love the Little Red Lighthouse ~ so picturesque.
And I agree with my hubby, your photo does look like an oil painting here.

Neat idea to exchange postcards..

Pagan Sphinx said...

Rats! I didn't make it for the postcard but I enjoyed it a lot on your blog! Really spectacular shot!

I have a nifty car shot up!

Mojo said...

Sorry I got distracted and forgot all abotu posting my link. Thanks for the reminder!

nonizamboni said...

Hello, teach Mary,
The all red little lighthouse is adoring.
Never thought the big city had such small idylls.
I like the way you are pointing out what most people would not notice.
The Ruby Tuesday certainly have made both me and my family more aware of the details of things surrounding us.
Thanks
From Felisol

Jim said...

Hi Mary, I do like your NY Red Light House card. I never did see that one, is it visible from 49th St or your Battery Park or the ride out to the Stutue of Liberty? Or from one of the bridges?

I will come back for an answer, just mention Jim in a comment here and I'll pick up on it. Thanks.

Happy RT, once again, thanks for doing this. It is fun but is like living on the farm and having milk cows. You can't go far away for blogging world on Tuesdays (and Monday PM's).
..
BTW, I started out Black and then went to Red because it was the first post I made this month. You'll see.

Love the little red lighthouse :)

Hildegarde said...

That's a fun postcard. As a postcard fan I'm excited about your postcard idea. Now I once heard about a sort of chain of postcards system, I am going to look it up again and will let you know. Perhaps the theme of the postcards could be 'red' ?

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

What a fun idea about the postcards!

Dianne said...

you created a beautiful postcard!!

EastCoastLife said...

arghhhh.... I'm commenter number 30! I have missed getting your postcard! :(

Tink *~*~* said...

Love the post card idea! Don't pick me, I'm from NY - let someone else have a turn, ok?

Sounds good..as you know. All you have to do is simply let me know the details :)

Dora said...

Oops..I'm too late for the post card.

I have a few "rubies" this week. Check it out!

Mar said...

Love the postcard idea, not only because I am a postcard collector and new items are always a thrill.
Where can I send a postcard to you? I'd love to!!
Love that little red lighthouse!
Happy Ruby Tuesday!!

marcia@joyismygoal said...

Love that red light house Come see my cute car (well I wish it was mine:)

Rita said...

Mary, I do not have to be a winner to send you a postcard from my town. In fact I keep a nice supple on hand for just such occasions.

E-mail me (addy on my profile page) you snail mail address and it will be on the way.

This is a nice idea. Would love to see it catch on and cause hundreds of folks to get acquainted.

Gattina said...

The first ten cheated ! I protest, lol ! the game is for tuesday and not for monday and besides the Australians the Europeans started tuesday now, because here it's 6 am !! You should have given a time limit.

Candy said...

Cute card.

Sara Chapman said...

What a cute lighthouse! I never knew it was there. Absolutely let's do postcards. I love getting mail.

Ruby and inspiring Ruby Tuesday to all again!

Linnea W said...

Great idea...receiving postcards from all around the world will be fun!

shutterhappyjenn said...

Sadly, I can't have the postcard... But it's okay.

Jama said...

I love the idea! just PM me your address and I'll send a postcard your way, but it's going to take sometimes cos I'm so far away from you.

Digital Flower Pictures said...

The postcards sound like fun.

Ginger~Wilmington NC said...

I wasn't one of the first posters, but I would love to send you a post card from my area! Let me know where!

What a lovely idea to send postcards to each other, I'm all for it!
I'll send you a postcard from Belgium if you want? Do you want one of my own pictures?

Raven said...

What a great post card! And you made it? Very cool.

Sheila said...

That makes a wonderful postcard! Thank you so much for drawing it to my attention. I'm far, FAR, too late to be one of your first 10 commenters, but if you'd like a card from England, do let me have your address.
