Robin Egg Blue Table

You can tell it's spring here when the birds are busy building their nests.  This prompted my 
Robin Egg Blue Table
Since I never got to use my white cracked eggs for my Easter table I thought I would put them to use here while I reused the willow branches from my Easter table.
I love these basket weave dishes from Oneida.  I love the texture, plus they 
are just a little smaller than most plates, so they make good stacking plates.
I grabbed a really old bird house I have had for years and repainted the roof with a little robin egg blue paint, I still wanted some of the dark to show through so it would contrast a little more with the cream color of the house. 
I think the table looks really nice with my plate racks on the kitchen wall.
We had a nice thunderstorm last night, another sure sign of spring!
I hope you are enjoying the warmer weather this time of year brings.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. So pretty Ann, I think eggs are perfect for spring as well as Easter! Love the sweet nests in the pretty blue bowls!

  2. I am so drawn to using nests one way or another so I like your table a lot.

  3. Looks beautiful Ann. Love the blues and those darling little eggs in the nest. Nice job getting the eggs under the bell jar. Your table is very inviting.

  5. Ann, I love robin's egg blue and your table is just beautiful. The nests are so pretty with the eggs. I like to keep nests out all spring, they bring the promise of new life! Happy Wednesday'
