I decided to play along with an acquaintance of mine, Stephanie of Steph's Cup of Tea Blog and write about her color of the week: Robin's Egg Blue
Blue happens to be one of my favorite colors! The little glass cup above sits near my kitchen window. I fell in love with it when my husband's mom brought it home from his great-aunt's house about 15 years ago. My MIL thought I might like a little trinket from this aunt's house, as the aunt had passed away and her nieces were left with the task of going through her things. I don't know anything about this cup, but fell in love with it's shape. It looks like a tree stump with leaves wrapped around it.
When I looked closer at my surroundings I found a few other blue, but not Robin's Egg Blue, things in my possession. In the past year I needed to get a new cell phone and iPod. Since there are color choices now that weren't available so many moons ago, I decided to get blue of each of these things! And then I have just a hint of blue in my counter tops so I went for blue glass canisters. I have a few vases and pottery pieces too, but again no Robin's Egg Blue.
To me blue is so relaxing. In my brain when I feel stressed, I capture the color of the prettiest ocean scene, gorgeous tropical blue waves with white sandy beaches and an orange glow of the sun rising up on the horizon! Then I smile a big, contented smile.
