Ruby Tuesday - Holiday Lighting

Ruby Tuesday arrives in the Christmas holiday time where many are rushing to decorate their homes. Of course, many of the items we like to show off are manufactured of questionable quality.

Like this 'tree' of lights, a inverted cone full of lights that is to represent a coiled conifer. Made of plastic, including the stakes, also made of the flimsy material.

This was a few years ago, and I think that a strong wind toppled the tree. When Patti tried to reattach the tree, said stake broke. It could not stand.

Ever resourceful, Patti attached it to the railing by the front door. Voila, the tree stood, the ruby lights shining on a snowy Christmas night. An interesting holiday ruby to say the least!
