Ruby Tuesday: Holiday Decor Around Town

One of the windows at Williams-Sonoma ...



The doors to Talbots ...



that's my new car reflected in the doors.

A giant bow and a giant wreath on Main Street ...




Worthy wishes across the sky ...



The bus stop gazebo ...



Hot Dog Bob gets into every holiday ...



Friendly snowmen line the street ...



these shots were all taken the same afternoon last week in the towns of Shrewsbury, Red Bank and Keyport, NJ. It was an errandpalooza.

RUBY TUESDAY

The rubies are beautiful. The bows, wreaths and peaceful messages offer nice sentiments. The door to Talbots is red and the Williams/Sonoma layout show us that commercial and holiday may go together at least in style and not too crass...

What can one say about a giant red-hot wurst? Happily the hot dog purveyor offers wreaths and ribbons as well!

Happy Birthday to you Dianne! Many more we hope for, we love your writings and photos!

What delightfully festive shopping photos you've captured and shared! They almost make me want to venture forth to a local mall ... almost ;-)

Hope your birthday was a happy one! I loved Hope's first post at Forks Off the Moment!
Hugs and blessings,

It's a red-fest! How fun! I've been eying those gingerbread plates at Williams-Sonoma. ;)

You found some wonderful ruby Christmas reds!
The first is a perfect window scene - I love it!
Nice that your new car is white to contrast with those lovely red doors.
Nice post!

What a lovely idea for a Ruby Tuesday post. That bus stop gazebo is really beautiful, nothing like our bus stops in Belgium!

So much holiday feeling, glade that you shard with us. We do not celebrate much Christmas in Taiwan, it is not even a holiday.

Great shots. I love when towns get dressed up for the holidays.

I love the bus stop gazebo - looks fabulous!

Patti said...

You spotted some festive rubies on your errandpalooza. Nice shops in those towns. We don't have neat bus stop gazebos around here. Just those pleixglas shelters with ads in them.

Happy birthday Dianne! You are catching up to us in age..
Our son is a Sagittarius as well.

Daryl said...
