Ruby Tuesday



Hi Everybody! It's Ruby Tuesday again!

I'm posting an interesting display of
RED wagons on the front lawn of a crafts and collectibles shop in Chester, New Jersey. The display caught my eye as I passed by. Pretty clever, no?

Photobucket

AND

I wanted to show you a couple of the many postcards Sara Chapman of Art Squad Graphics sent to me. She's been collecting a long time and picked out lovely postcards with RED in them.

The two you see below are art cards: The one at the top is a Renoir called Two Sisters (On the Terrace) and the second one is by James Stuart Park called A Gypsy Maid. Do you see the poppies? I LOVE poppies!

Photobucket

Hope you posted for Ruby Tuesday today. Don't forget to sign Mr. Linky and leave a comment. also don't forget to visit other participants. Visiting each other is what makes our meme so popular.

**NOTICE**
I'm going to continue to post some of the postcards sent to me by you wonderful bloggers. I have a few on display in my sidebar right now. I'll change the display every few days.

Sara's cards are lovely. Renoir is familiar; thank you for the intro to James S. Park.

Chester, NJ, huh? Why, that's close enough to me. Red wagons are always fun.

Renoir's art is timeless! I like the stack of wheelbarrows as much :)

Greyscale Territory said...

Love finding surprise delights like your first photo! And those postcards are wonderful! It's great finding images like this of the Old Masters!

nonizamboni said...

Great photo of the wagons! And very interesting to see postcards, especially as they reflect the sender's personality.

Mimi said...

Lovely cards.
I love poppies too- I've tried to grow them a few times from ones I picked at the side of the road, which I think is illegal here, but it was unsuccessful anyway.

first thing I bought my girls when they were little was a wagon. they come in quite handy.

Peggy said...

Loved the wagons, took me waaaay back!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Wonderful display or red wagons. And the postcards Sara sent are WONDERFUL!

Hildegarde said...

The wagons : fun ! The cards : beautiful art for sure. When you find time, mail me your home address so that I can send you a card, OK ?

Ralph said...

Red goes well with all kiddie things. Wagons are the ultimate toy, as the younger minds can imagine al sorts of role play. Reminds us of when the kids were so much younger...

Bond said...

Mary I will be up tomorrow...hey did yoou get my snail mail address I emailed?

James said...

Very cool wagon display. That would have caught my eye too.

Mojo said...

I'm celebrating my 52nd week of RT this week... but I can't figure out how it worked out that 52 weeks doesn't equal one year. Because my actual date anniversary is still 9 days off!

I never had one of these swell red wagons... but my kids did.

Stephanie V said...

Wonderful nostalgia...much more satisfying than the big plastic clunkers that kids ride around in now. I guess it's all in the memories.

Dianne said...

the wagon display is wonderful!

and the post cards are lovely

~Just me again~ said...

Awesome wagons, I love it!!!

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

That looks like a wonderful little shop! Did you find anything treasures there?

(I'm still working on finding a worthy postcard with red in it.) :P

Not joining in today but very grateful for the view!

DrillerAA09 said...

Hey, I actually have one of these wagons. The grandcrew have pulled each other around in it for several years. Now that the youngest is six, the wagon is about to go into retirement or garage sale. Happy RT everyone.

amanda said...

Mary the post card that has the lady with the poppies is so elegant! I do like the wagon display very cute wish I had caught that myself!

Jan said...

The wagons are too cool for school, Mary. I love poppies, too.

Red wagons are perfect for RT and the postcards are beautiful.

Nifty stack of red wagons and lovely cards! I've shared an acrobatic act from the Orange County Fair in a variety of forms (at Sacred Ruminations) ... just because I couldn't stop myself ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Hi Mary. I love the humor of the stacked wagons. How could anyone resist walking into that shop?

The poppies are the best.

Dimple said...

A wagon for every size! Very clever

Phoenix said...

What awesome photos you have this week! That really is a neat way to stack up the wagons, I never would have thought to do it that way! I hope you have a great Tuesday! :)

Jim said...

Those are pretty cards, very pretty. Mary, I did go to town today but only to the doctor's office and then to a Greek restaurant and to the University of Houston with my grandaughter.
No tourist things were where we were.
Soon.

Happy RT! We all appreciate your hard work and pretty REDs.

Those wagons are so cute being stacked up like that!

I'm playing again this week, it's up now!

quilly said...

Those stacked wagons were a whimsical & serendipitous find! And the post cards are truly treasure, not just because they're beautiful, but because of the connections they represent.

hip chick said...

Oh I love all those wagons. When my children were little I used to pull them around in a little red wagon.

Tink *~*~* said...

The wagons are cool - I've seen them on people's lawns sometimes, serving as planters.

Hootin' Anni said...

LOVE! The post card gifts. AND....the wagons. I'll take the largest please...just ship it my way. I could use that one, working in the yard. A lot easier than a huge awkward wheel barrow.

Happy Tuesday === My Ruby is posted. Scroll down below Tuesday's Heads or Tails.

I just found you and would love to join your Ruby Tuesday Party. Lot's of RED going on around here.

Hi Mary, the postcards are great. Poppies are so pretty.
And I recognize the Renoir. Lovely.


Those red wagons are perfect for Ruby Tuesday! Wonderful find.

Joanna said...

Those wagons are so eye-catching.

Ginger said...

I love the post cards! that reminds me, I still need to mail one to you from Wilmington, NC! Oops! I promise I'll do it today!

srp said...

My brother had a wagon with the wood sides. Mine and the one I had for my daughter was just the metal red wagon. In fact, if I think about it... that wagon may still be in storage. Very nice.

Kay said...

A wagon for everyone!

... having a three bears sort of moment right now...

Happy Tuesday!

Mo said...

Thanks for posting my Dowagiac postcard in your sidebar :)
I have your little red lighthouse postcard on the bulletin board above my computer at work.
I do love a little red wagon, and that stack of them made me smile. And trust me, I needed a smile today! Thanks!

My Ruby Tuesday post is two pics of the red car that was parked in front of my store for this past weekend's Rod & Roll festival in Dowagiac. Hop on over to It's A Blog Eat Blog World and check 'em out!
If it's still Tuesday for you, Happy Tuesday!

Kimmy said...

hehe! I am new to following your blog and your art! I love it. I agree. I love the fact that I can get introduced to other artists and photographers! Your work is great! The poppies remind me of my childhood!

Felisol said...

Dear teach Mary,
"Paint your wagon" it's singing in my head to all these beautiful collectibles.

I love Renoir, everything seems so easy and smiling in his paintings.
JS Park is not familiar to me.
I'll have to google him. Gorgeous painting, both the girl and the poppies.

Terry said...

hello beloved teach..i have missed you this last few weeks.
when we got home last monday from our trip out west, i was a little under the weather but am feeling really good today and so, even though it is almost wednesday, here i just made my ruby tuesday post.
i love those red wagons here that you have posted!
in my younger days, there was hardly a mother that didn't have one of these to pull their babies in, out for walks, and there was hardly a little boy that wasn't a proud owner of one of these treasures.
where have all those good days gone mary t?
i am so happy that you are posting these old post cards. they will bring back so many nice memories!
what did we all do without you when we didn't know you, i will ever wonder.
you give us a lot of joy with your ruby tuesday blog!
love terry

The wagons are fantastic!! I looked all over and everything is just beautiful!!

Wow congratulations on the growth and success of this wonderful meme.

I will be taking an online course in photography soon. It is an 8 week course and I have no clue just how extensive the projects will be.

So for now, with the exception, of one small meme, I am not committing myself until I know I can keep up.

Good for you Mary!! This is truly awesome!!
Jackie

I am such a dope-I completely forgot about RT again...been busy with cafe planning, but that's no excuse. I'll try harder (again!).
