I didn't realize the color theme running
through this post until I saw them all
Seems only fitting that RED Tuesday follows
BLUE Monday.
And as I write this it dawns on me
that my pics for tomorrow have a
WHITE theme.
My mind must be secretly working
behind my back ;-)

The only souvenir I brought home from
Idaho was this little pedestal and fish bowl.
(already had the marbles)
yeah! you thought I had lost 'em

And back home I eyed this plate and
just had to have it, same with the brass bucket.
$1 for each...and the fish bowl thingy--50c.


For 3 or More I am sharing these wonderfully
delicious amaretto cream filled strawberries.
Our last breakfast in Idaho was as scrumptious as
the rest. Amaretto stuffed french toast topped with
more strawberries.
Each person got 3 edible 'flowers'.


One morning when we arrived at Fiddletown
(which was really the high school)
this jewel was parked away
from all the other cars.
I immediately thought
RUBY TUESDAY folks are gonna
like this.

I would call that Candy Apple Red, wouldn't you?

If you are new to my story and are wondering
why a Texas girl was in Idaho...
check back through my last few posts.

Then mosey back to see more

2nd Time Around stuff

Three or More things and

Ruby Tuesday reds.

Mine and my Hubs first car was a Camero. The noted color from the factory - Candy Apple Red! :)
We had waffles and strawberries this weekend. Never thought of making strawberry 'flowers.'
I love the pics I see here in your sidebar and all your goodie finds. I have to come back and spend some time browsing.
