Ruby Tuesday - Classic carriage house



Ruby Tuesday is back, with Mary's short proviso: a lot or a little red. Today it is the beautiful carriage house on Elizabeth Street in Derby CT. 

I have always liked the look of the red brick and Victorian gingerbread, and can almost picture the stable of horses and wagons that served the old owner many tears ago. 

A house of elegance, style and refinement.

It was built sometime in the 19'th century, and Patti wrote of (and took the picture) of this beauty and its new owners. 

Some things will never go out of style...
