Ruby Tuesday



Aaah, yes, it's Ruby Tuesday and it's getting real close to Valentine's Day, isn't it?

Here are photos I took with my camera phone in my local drug store a few weeks ago. Why? Because it was only a few days after New Year's and here were loads and loads of RED Valentine's Day items waiting to be purchased!


They are really cute, no?

Do you have any Valentine's cuddly toys, candy, signs, or anything to post either this week or next week?

If you do, post them for us to enjoy.

Meantime Mr. Linky is below for you to sign and leave a comment. Try to visit your friends who post to Ruby Tuesday. You know they will all appreciate it!

Lots of lovely red Valentine goodness in your neck of the woods Mary, but over here in mine my thoughts (and my camera) are turning towards spring :).

PS Love the new header image!

I actually have no idea about the date of Valentine's Day.
Norwegian stores have not begun exhibiting Valentine's items yet, so I think it must be at leasst a week away.
Actually, I'm thankful they are not so aggressive marketing every "Day".
I do appreciate some flowers or a box of chocolate for the actual day though.
Your Valentine's Teddies are so cute.
I'm more reluctant to the red devils, would like that two row teeth smile grinning at me in the dark!
Have a happy Ruby Tuesday, all of you.

It's incredible how prematurely retail establishments hustle out the merchandise for the next holiday. I was in CVS or Walgreens or someplace like that ON HALLOWEEN and there was a plush Mickey Mouse Santa on the shelves! I too whipped out my cell phone in disbelief and mockery :)

I love those little devils Mary!
My birthday is actually Valentine's Day so yes, I REALLY like seeing all the items on display. They do come out a little early though.
I already had a red rose scheduled to post which fits right along with your suggestion.
Cute shots!

Loree said...

I think red ju st has to be February's colour. I am back after a long break from RT. No cuddly toys this week....maybe next week.

ellen b said...

Heidi said...

Hi Mary,
Red, Red everywhere. I love valentine's day! It's a holiday we never celebrated growing up, so now I make up for it with lots of fun treats and pretty decorations. Not too much, but enough to feel festive! Those little devils in your pictures really do look devilish, hmm, wonder what they are thinking?!
Thanks for hosting. Have a great week.
XO

Ralph said...

The devilish ruby, a valentine with a hint of mischief in his eye. The cute may be more important than the sentiment, the cute so disarming so as to allow you and your love to laugh at the cute guy together...

bj said...

How cute these are...
Thanks so much for hosting.

Eaton Bennett said...

Hi Mary, it doesn't seem a whole year since the last Valentine's Day.
How could a whole year have gone that quickly!

I think your two white bears tipped with red are very sweet. :))

Hahaha~ What a coincidence I posted a giant candy cane this week :P

Titanium said...

As always, I've got an outdoor-themed twist. Honest, I didn't stage it just for this meme; it just happened, and seemed to fit nicely.

Wow, Valentine's Day already!

Cool shots, Mary. All I have are flowers...

Kerslyn said...

haven't seen Valentine's stuff last weekend at the mall. Maybe they are just starting to display those stuffs and decorate yesterday. But what I wanna share is my husband's second wife that he dearly love. :-)

Paz said...

Looks like there's no shortage of Valentine's Day stuff. ;-)

I love these photos. Too precious.

what a grimace of a grin those little devils have

Mo said...

Oh Mary, you know I love old stone architecture, and that header and scroll bar pics are awesome!
I hadn't thought about taking pics of the Valentine's stuff in a store, but yours are great. I have a special item in mind to photograph for next week, but for today I have the ATTACK OF A GIANT CRAB for our Ruby Tuesday adventures!
Cheers,
mo

Titanium said...

My apologies- my link didn't take!

Here is my contribution for today.

Patti said...

Hi Mary - It's like I read your mind. I just posted a red Teddy bear that looks like he's ready for Valentine's Day.

I love all the guys you posted here. So cute .

Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Martha in PA said...

Great pictures. I'm not sure I will want to see a Valentine's Day plush, valentine card, or candy after working in Walgreens. They have lots of choices. I will have to head in early one day with camera in hand! I love when you give us a topic!

Nanc said...

Thanks for visiting my blog! I will get this Ruby Tuesday figured out, and post a photo next week!

CrAzY Working Mom said...
