    I don’t really know how to subscribe to people (and don’t have twitter), so I can’t really do that part, but I do check Cooking for Seven on a daily basis (just in case something tasty pops up!).

    Totally the Robin’s egg nest. I love it all, but I have a thing for beautiful birds and well, Robin’s egg blue! Sharing you on Facebook!
  33. Robyn 
    Robin’s Egg Blue. Beautiful!
  34. Savanah 
    All your pictures are gorgeous, but I can’t keep my eyes off the Robin’s Egg Blue.
    The robin is sort of an unofficial crest for my family on my mother’s side. They immigrated to America from Ireland during the famine and my great-great-(how every many greats!) mother was a wonderful artist who turned amateur tattoo artist and gave all the men in the family a robin on their left forearm. I’m no man, but I think I’ll be reviving that tradition when I’m older and get one.
    Thank you for your wonderful posts!
