Ruby Tuesday

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

Winter brings the Holiday season , and I’m joining Mary The Teach at    to share a little ruby color for Ruby Tuesday.

As a girl, I recall my grandmother’s small white Christmas tree which she decorated with shiny glass ornaments and pretty little birds that clipped on the branches.   On my Christmas tree, can you find the red cardinal?


Christmas Greetings!

This a favorite painted snowman ornament, actually a little too big for the Christmas tree.  Beneath it are two hand-made Christmas stockings of holly print and  a red and white print.  Can you find the Santa’s?

Christmas caroling was a lot of fun last year at this chapel.  After participating in a  sing-a-long  with a choir of religious  music and Hymns from five different countries inside the chapel, we were all given small white candles that were lit and joined in some Christmas carols together.

Joy To the World…….


Candles' all aglow in the night while we sing!








Please visit my guestbook on my other blog.  Thank-you for stopping by.

As a fan of Disney World, Do you remember the Disney stars and Motor Cars parade?

Mickie and Minnie were riding in a real 1929 Cadillac car.

I’m sharing my photos of Red on  this weekly meme hosted by Mary at Work of the Poet.


Tuesdays are the day to share your photos in shades of red.

This is a photo of my red tomatoes on the last day of August.

On my previous post, I displayed red photos along with my mother’s recipe for marinara sauce for Foodie Friday.

Here is the link, for more red photos of mine.

I’m joining work of the poet with a photo or two with a red theme.  Save the best for last. 

One of the current  Exhibitions at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. 

Now Through September 6, 2010
Late Renoir follows the renowned painter Pierre-Auguste Renoir through the final—and most fertile and innovative—decades of his career. At the height of his creative powers and looking toward posterity, Renoir created art that was timeless, enticing, and worthy of comparison to the greatest of the old masters, such as Raphael, Titian, and Rubens.
While walking through the exhibit the use of cameras and cell phones are not allowed.
The photo below of one of Renoir’s paintings is from the Philadelphia museum of Art ‘s website.

Philadelphia Museum of Art’s history:

 The Philadelphia Museum of Art stands as one of the great art institutions of the world. In the over 125 years since its founding, it has grown far beyond the limits originally set for it. Today, the Museum houses over 225,000 works of art encompassing some of the greatest achievements of human creativity, and offers a wealth of exhibitions and educational programs for a public of all ages. 

Historically, the Museum was a legacy of the great Centennial Exposition of 1876 held in Fairmount Park. In March 1873, an act of the Pennsylvania State Legislature set in motion plans for the construction of Memorial Hall—a permanent building to be designed by Hermann J. Schwarzmann—which was to serve as the art gallery of the exposition. At the conclusion of the Centennial celebrations, Memorial Hall was to remain open as a Museum of Art and Industry “for the improvement and enjoyment of the people of the Commonwealth.”

Hello world, it’s Tuesday and time to display some photos with a red colour theme and link up with

Bento Box lunch at Asian restaurant

Lunch out with friends on day off is a welcome refresher.

I just love to eat from a Bento Box.  See the red color in side the partitions.  The selection included Teriyaki chicken strips, vegetables,  California roll.  A  soup was served prior to the Bento Box’s placed before me with chopsticks.  I prefer to use the fork.

Happy Ruby Tuesday

Happy Ruby Tuesday everyone! 

It’s time to share a photo or two with a red theme. 

Tomato Pie  

DeLorenzo's Tomato Pie, half is artichokes and mushroom,/sausage & spinach












This is a tomato pie from DeLorenzo’s in Robbinsville, NJ. Unlike pizza, the cheese goes on first, then they add the tomato sauce on top.

Tomato Pies Beginnings:

Outside of Trenton, New Jersey, , the term Tomato Pie is little known. Utica, New York and Norristown, Pa have their own versions.
The first Tomato Pie restaurant opend in 1912 called Papa’s Tomato Pie on South Clinton Avenue, Trenton. Papa had emigratred from Naples, Italy and “the story goes that as they were making bread , they put some sliced tomatoes on it and cooked it, and that was it.”

Papa’s Tomato Pies is still around owned by his descendants, Azzaro, 62 and his son Dominic is on 804 Chambers Street.
Now, for DeLorenzo’s Tomato Pies, the place that we went to. Pasquale and Maria Delorenzo emigrated from Naples to America at the turn of the century as well. The family had eight sons and four daughters in a row house on Hudson Street. In 1936, the 4 oldest son’s (Joe, Chick, Jimmy and Johnny) opened Delorenzo”s tomato Pies on the first floor of the rowhouse, then moved it to 530 Hudson Street where it is currently operating today.
In 2008, Chick’s grandson, Sam Amico, 38 opened a modern DeLorenzo’s Tomato Pies in 2350 Highway 33 in suburban Robbinsville.

In 1650, it was named Krasnaya Ploschad,  krasnaya (meaning both beautiful and red ).

The fire hydrant has a cap of snow.


This photo is from last week’s Nor’Easter snow storm that dropped 12- 15 inches snow here.   The snowplow crew cleared the hydrant later, so more visible.

Please join    for more Ruby Tuesday photos from around the world.

Ruby Tuesday

old Mill circa 1800's along the Millstone river

Today is Ruby Tuesday.  Please go Mary the Teach at to view many photos in red.

Kingston Mill Historic District:

This place is located a short drive from my house.   After lunch with my friend last week, I decided to try out my new camera  here thinking of this historic red building, called the mill.

This place has historical  importance.

The stone bridge was rebuilt in 1798 after Continental troops in the Revolution, hoping to delay a retreat from Princeton, destroyed an earlier wooden bridge.

The red mill  was rebuilt by John and Jacop Gulick in Kingston.

Just below the bridge is a section of  the Millstone  river.  The evidence of winter is shown in the photo contrasting flowing water and frozen tree limbs.  Will post the photo later (having some trouble uploading the photos).
