Ruby Tuesday#20 Reds In Dr. Jose Rizal's House

We went to visit our national hero's ancestral home in Calamba, Laguna, Luzon last August 2009. I was excited to be there as the house was always mentioned in our school books. We took some pictures, explored the house and its surrounding area, bought some souvenirs and I found some items worth for my Ruby Tuesday entries. Here they are:

The red tile roof of the ancestral home of Dr. Jose Rizal.


The medallions and coins owned by the Philippine national hero himself, Dr. Jose Rizal.


I found this lady on top of the ladies' comfort room door. She is wearing the traditional Maria Clara dress of the Spanish time and she is also carrying a hanky and a pretty fan.


This is my entry for:

The red background for the medals is certainly a nice backdrop; but I love that little lady - very quaint!

An interesting door decor for the Ladies' room. :)

The display is nice, the red backdrop makes us pay attention to the badges. The door decoration is from a time long ago. The hand painted woman is a work of art!

I do like that lady. She's very stylish.

Hi Marites -- My vote goes for the delicate little lady. She is so dainty and correct. I am wondering her age since her creation or year of her making?
Happy RT! :-)
