Color Of The Week giveaway

Steph is having a giveaway at her blog http://stephcupoftea.blogspot.com/ and this week the color is robin egg blue. I love blue and found many lovely shades around my home, but somehow this shade of blue is a little hard to find around here. This book cover on my "Isles of the Carribbean" book is pretty close.

Robin egg blue is such a pretty, bright color. Darker blue is less lively and seems to represent authority and success. Maybe that's why IBM was known as Big Blue. Then there is "having the blues" and being sad.


This Royal Stafford bone china cup and saucer is paler than robin egg blue (the background comes closer) but it is a favorite of mine for its pretty color.


The candle looks to be the right shade. This will be a fun exercise to help me become more aware of the color that surrounds me and not just see blue, but robin egg blue, navy blue, teal blue, powder blue..........

Love the teacup and saucer! Blue is so lovely, I'm coming back to it slowly after a hiatus from it!

I love all your blue goodies! That teacup is beautiful and so elegant. Very feminine, too!

Looks like the shirt you are wearing in your Facebook profile photo is also Robin Egg's blue!

I know they aren't blue, but I really like the picture of the tea pot with the flowers on it...next to the candle. It looks very much like springtime! :)
