THE "NEW" RED TRAY...

I am playing in two fun memes today...
*
Sweet Mary at WORKS OF THE POET
THREE OR MORE
with TAM at THE GYPSY'S CORNER
*************************
My new love....as some of you know is....
TOLE TRAYS...
and I DO have THREE OR MORE....
*
I've looked forever and ever for a RED one...
and found this one on....where else but EBAY...
it's an oldie...I love the shape and some of the paint is missing...and it has some scratches...
but I sure do love it !
Mr. Sweet says you can't LOVE a red tray...
What do men know !!!!!
I love trays...pretty trays and I especially love
TOLE TRAYS....
not only are they pretty to MY eyes...
they are wonderful to serve
breakfast
on..... (and you know me and my breakfasts...!)
;O)
......my very favorite meal of the whole, entire, beautiful day!!
*

I have a beautiful ROBIN'S EGG BLUE tray that you saw yesterday...on BLUE MONDAY...
I have a round deep green one... (I don't think I've shown that one yet....)
I have a WHITE one that I just got last week...just full of scratches.... (it will be shown in the future)...
NOW the search is on for the
ULTIMATE black one ! ....and not just any black one...
A beautiful one....

LOVE TO EVERYONE.....

Thanks so much for sharing your lovely red tray with us! That breakfast (what I could SEE) sure looked yummy!

Many hugs...........

Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, I see all the ruby colors, but once I saw that biscuit with gravy and the bacon...oh boy. Now you got me drooling.

My R T is now posted if you'd like to stop by to view. Have a terrific Tuesday.

Theresa said...

Your posts are always gorgeous and make me hungry:) Have a blessed day!

Beverly said...

BJ, I'm with you. I love tole trays. I only have black, but I love the three I have. I'll have to share them one Tuesday.

This red tray is gorgeous. Great find!

I think you need a caution: calories in next photo on here! Lovely photos!

LADY JANE'S EMPORIUM said...

My dear BJ...Why do I find myself running to the fridge every time I click on your blog? I love the trays...quite impressive collection!
Please pass the gravy...and have a YUMMY Day!

Poppedijne said...

Husbands usaly don't see what we see in these old things.Your red tray is beautiful whatever he says but...I like the robin blue one better.Robin blue is one of my favorite shades of color.

Kathleen Grace said...

The red will look perfect in your home BJ! Of course you can love a tray! It isn't the same love as what you have for your family but it IS love! Now, can you pass me some of those biscuits and gravy and bacon?

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Beautiful red tray, BJ! I'm looking forward to seeing the white one.

That is J's favorite breakfast. I don't make it often!:-)

Stacey said...

BJ, your red tray is gorgeous. I have wanted to order them from ebay and have been chicken. So you consider that a good experience, I gather?! I may have to get up my nerve and order one or three. :)

Candy said...

I'm up this morning and ready for my breakfast...do you deliver?

Just ring the bell, I'll be on the treadmill.

Happy RT, I like the way you play!

Beautiful and im so hungry now, You sure can cook,

Lori E said...

I am a tole painter so I know first hand that you can love a red tray.
Men pfffft. What do they know. He probably also says that Trix are for kids.

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi BJ....love all your sweet pictures. Your breakfast looks so good....it is my favorite meal also. I could eat breakfast anytime of the day.

Hugs, Barb

Cami @ Creating Myself said...

Great tray (I love tole too) but the breakfast is what really captured my eye....yummy!

Sandra said...

Hi BJ, I love the red tray! And I can just hear my little ones tell me "well why don't you marry it?" LOL! I've been on the lookout for trays here lately but no luck.
Blessings,
Sandra

Justine said...

Girl, if that's the kind of breakfast you eat every day I can see why it's your favorite meal! Mmmm... send me over some of them biscuits!

Justine :o )

marty39 said...

Oh your red tray is just gorgeous. I love toile trays too, and yours are just lovely. Great breakfast too. Hugs, Marty

Smilingsal said...

I know that you're a happy camper with a RED metal tray! That breakfast does not look like one a tiny person like you would/could eat. On the other hand, I could handle it fine!

Trish said...

Loving your Tole Trays! And I can surely tell that you are a Southern lady by the way you serve up breakfast...lovely!

ellievellie said...

I like this wear - so soft and such details - I like even more what's inside it - yum! Drinking coffee with a desert topped with pecans - looking at a rose! Perfect way to get pleasure on and stress off

storyteller said...

Lovely find ... beautiful red tray for RT and tasty temptations too ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

squawmama said...

Oh BJ, How beautiful are your trays... I love them all. But man oh man... that breakfast... YUMO!!! Did you cook up that yummy meal??? The biscuits are picture perfect... OK I am drooling. Love YA

Kris said...

I like the bowl the best. I broke my mom's very similar one. :( I was sooo sad!

Pretty photos though.

And I like the title of your blog.

Greetings from Norway.

Chrissy said...

Great find b.j.so "YOU"...hope you are keeping well,thanks so much for coming by!! 0xx00x0x

salmagundi said...

Of course, I love the red tray!! I have three similar red ones, and I'm looking for a blue one like yours. But, it has to be cheap - maybe some day it will show up. You know how it is with our SS budget. Sally

Betty said...

When I saw your red tray it brought back to my mind my Mom's, hers was black though. Sadly I don't know what ever became of it.
Have a great day!

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Linda's Blue Gate said...

nonizamboni said...

Beautiful trays--what a nice thing to collection! Glad you found the red one :O)
Happy Ruby Tuesday!

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

You always have the yummiest looking breakfasts! They look better than my cold bowl of cereal in my plastic bowl and cup of yogurt, lol.

I really like that red tray too, though I'm still more partial to the robin's egg blue one. I hope you find your black tray! I don't own a tole tray yet, but hope to someday.

Lynn said...

Breakfast is mt fave too. That one is perfect!

Blondie's Journal said...

I love the red tray!! Is that biscuits and gravy I see?? And those little nicks and chips just add to the charm. That bacon looks nice and lean. The scalloped edges are charming. Not sure what is in that fluted glass, but it looks heavenly. The flowers are so pretty. Is there fresh squeezed juice to go with this feast?? Can't wait to see the rest of your trays. Pass the salt, please!
