Taking in Life Around Me......#SundayStills...Theme: Color Challenge....Ruby wine

This #sundaystills challenge is hosted by Terrie from Second Wind LeisureI've also been loving visiting the blogs of the other participants and being inspired by their interpretations of the theme.

There is a bit of deep red in the yellow leaves. 

This weeks theme is another color challenge. This time, Ruby Wine...and I totally read it wrong, and thought Ruby Red...haha. Well, they're somewhat close. I do love the color red. 

Our local BBQ joint. Yummy southern style BBQ. My favorite dish is the fried catfish.
I stumbled upon this door when we were visiting Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands. I love the handles. 
The trees that line the property down the road from my house. This does NOT do it justice. They're so pretty. 
I spy some beautiful reds in the unique bookstore in Italy, called Libreria Acqua Alta. I share more photos in this post

When we were in Fort Worth before my daughter and her family came home, we visited the botanical gardens. They were so beautiful and I know I didn't see everything I would've loved to have seen. But this cardinal was stunning. 
This dragon was in one of the casino/hotels in Las Vegas when I visited quite a few years ago with my youngest daughter for a soccer tournament.
I don't remember what this flower is called, but it's beautiful. 
When visiting NYC in 2017 we took a ferry ride over to Hoboken NJ to visit Carlos Bakery. A beautiful deep red building greeted us. Yummy pastries greeted us inside. 
The old buildings in NYC are stunning next to the new. This church was no exception with its gorgeous doors. 
Visiting Palm Springs in 2018, I loved wandering the gardens wherever we were...because in an area that I thought reminded me of landing on Mars (very brown), the bursts of color throughout were welcome. 
Wine tasting at my Aunt and Uncles Vineyard on Kelly's Island, Ohio. 
These are their wines. 
An incredible sunset over Lake Erie, with the Marblehead lighthouse to the right of it. 
I always love fishing buoys...They're so neat looking. This one had a gorgeous deep red to it. 

With Joy Unquenchable,


  1. Your selections of rubywine are gorgeous and perfect for the color challenge this week, Kirstin! All beautifully photographed and such a wide variety. Amazing to see this color in so many places. Enjoy your week and have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!

    1. THank. you Terri. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family as well

  2. Beautiful photos Kirsten. Love that crazy cardinal, the red church doors and the Lake Erie sunset.

    1. Thank you. They had so many birds and animals like that at the botanical gardens. So cool.

  3. Wonderful photos. I love the flowers, first one reminds me of a poppy? Second one looks like one I see in Hawaii - Ohi'a? And I would love to visit the Bake Shop too! So inviting! :)

    1. Thank you Susanne. yes, maybe it is a type of poppy. The second one I think was when we were in Palm Desert, but the climate is perhaps a little like Hawaii so maybe it is similar.

  4. The photos you shared are awesome! That cardinal is so cute.

    1. Thank you Debby. I loved all the displays they had there.
