Robin Egg Blue

Finding a robin egg in the spring was a treasure when I was a little girl.  I always found parts of an egg.  My wonderment would have been to find a whole one. I did find whole eggs in the nest but we were taught to leave the nests alone because the mother bird wouldn't come back if we touched them.(not sure if that is true or not but I wasn't about to cause a baby bird not to have a mother!)  I grew up on a farm in the small town of Saxonburg, PA.  Life was simple back then as I amused myself by playing outside. Unusual rocks, locust shells and bird eggs were part of a treasure hunt for me. 

If you asked me my favorite color I would say blue... but when I really think about it my favorite crayon was always blue green and now that I am playing with polymer clay I keep chosing to work with turquoise.  So this spring I thought I would try to make a robin egg. 

Even though color is something that you cannot memorize I think I did it!

I found part of an egg in the yard this morning so I was excited to see how well I did with matching the color and I think I did it!  Of course I am a muse follower and don't measure anything so who knows if I can do it again!  It was fun though and I made a bunch of tiny egg charms and this nest.... not sure what I will do with them but I have had fun with it so far!


  1. Wow, Marian! You really did a perfect match! My favorite color, also. Happy Spring!

  2. You did a great job of matching that....I'm sure you can do it again..!
    It is such a pretty color, and one that is incredibly versatile, too. One of my favs.
    Thanks for dropping by my blog too, Marian. Your comments are always appreciated.

  3. So pretty and looks great with the copper wire!

  4. Perfect match indeed!! That's wonderful!

  5. Perfect match Marian! I was always fascinated by the color of robin's eggs as a child.
    The red bud trees are not at all common in New England but they survive well. It is fun having a unique tree in my yard! ~Val
