Ruby Tuesday-Sir Walter Scott's Collection


This seems to be Scotland week for me. But having been there twice, I have LOTS of pictures. This week's offering is from Abbotsford House, the home of Sir Walter Scott. Sir Walter was quite a collector and wouldn't you know--everything was displayed on RED!! So here are a few of the items he collected.


Crucifix said to be carried by Mary Queen of Scots
A lock of Bonnie Prince Charlie's hairSir Walter Scott's hair
Lots of goodies

OK, I know you are all busy checking out everyone's Ruby Tuesday but take the time to bookmark me and drop back to check out my blog. I am a retired Special Ed teacher who now spends most of her time on Sanibel Island, Florida which is a Sanctuary Island for wildlife. I volunteer for a wildlife hospital. I am also the proud grandma of 5 wonderful grandkids and brag about them often!! I also have a blog called Branches and Roots where I talk about genealogy and my ancestors. OK, enough about me. So if you really want to see red go to Work of the Poet
