Robin's Egg Blue Wednesday

I am having a blue kind of day...robin's egg blue. The colour is so calming and relaxing and holds such hope. Images of 'Mr Blandings Builds His Dream House' with Myrna Loy and Cary Grant come to mind. There is a great scene where Mrs. Blandings suggests what colours she would like to have her rooms painted. I like this woman!

~For my robin's egg blue Wednesday~

It is that time of day, tea anyone?

PS..if you are having difficulty with these sites let me know and I will try and find an image for you.
My computer is doing crazy things at the moment!

  1. I'll have a tea, please, from that lovely cup. It's a beautiful shade of blue and shows pink off exquisitely. And I do love that film for its happy harmlessness.

  3. Oh Jeanne...such loveliness abounds! You're absolutely right about the calming effect of robin's egg blue....or is it your blog I find so restful?

    I've missed my daily dose of your blog with the events of the past week, but I'm happy to report that I think I'm all caught up!I've so enjoyed catching up on all your happenings.

    Naturally, I'll be attempting to track down a copy of those books post haste. They both have me intrigued.

    Your daughters are just beautiful...all glowy and gorgeous looking, inside and out. I hope you've managed to stem to tide of tears in recent days.

    When I'm less sleep deprived, I'm going to go blog hopping around all your lovely recommendations in the side bar. Hope you're having a wonderful week. Meredy xo

  6. Such a pretty color! With that much loveliness, I'll gladly be blue! We actually painted our bedroom a soft blue, called Air, and my daughter's is a hydrangea blue I had mixed.
    I am in love with that mosaic, and the bridesmaids - coral and blue together are so fresh and pretty!

    Thanks for some blue skies in the middle of our blizzard!
    Best,
    Stephanie

  15. You are right on target with your color. Pantone's color for 2010. I have never done much with blues. I am a green/red/yellow 50 something but I did take the plunge with a turquoise studio space this year.

    I really like the way your blog is laid out. Not too much clutter. Calm without a lot of distraction.
    Glad I stopped by.

  16. That has got to be the most beautiful shade of blue ever. I am a lover of blue to begin with (reminds me of the ocean), but this shade is the best.

  17. How wonderful this blue shade is and what a fine collection. I love that beautiful evening dress of Grace Kelly's. And all the other blue things - and the cup with the words "Take these broken wings and learn to fly". Thank you for reminding me about this song.
    Best wishes
    Thyra
