Ruby Tuesday

My Ruby Tuesday posts are starting to look as if I spent my time bouncing between graffiti and the second hand store Lost & Found … because this week we’re back to Lost & Found again to admire the numerous examples of red to be found.

This most recent visit to Lost & Found happened after an amazing lunch with friends at the Napier Hotel. I’d been lucky enough that day to spend a very pleasant morning with a couple of friends touring second hand stores in the Fitzroy area, and after lunch I promised them the treat of scouring through Lost & Found to admire the vintage goodness.

So what did we see … because I didn’t buy anything?

Would you like ice with your whisky? Or maybe a boiled egg?

We seem to have salt and a lovely kettle to make a nice cup of tea.

And our choice of teapots and tea cosies to keep the tea warm.

We could always fill a thermos full of tea and have a picnic.

Especially if I was able to bake a cake ... it looks as though we have flour and sugar and maybe there's a little butter, eggs or milk somewhere close?

If I can't find any I could ride my bike to the store.

In my favourite red hat.

And something red to wear ... of course.

But I can't decide whether I should bring everything home in this red bag,

or maybe eggs would be safer in this red basket.

Of course I can't go to the store without making sure I have the right accessories ... and everything's neatly displayed on a red background to best effect.

And when we sit down and relax under this beautiful red lamp,

we can enjoy our cake and tea, and watch the children play on this gorgeous rocking horse.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you'll come again ... go visit Mary T for lots more.

I definitely need to plan a child-free trip to this neck of the woods! Love your photos!
PS: finally made something with a (tiny) piece of one of your vintage FQs!
