my favorite paint colors: tracey's robin's egg blue

She has a beautiful blog and has her own custom made robin's egg blue color that she has used throughout her home:








Isn't this a lovely color? She also gives some wonderful tutorials on furniture re-dos. You can visit Tracey at Notes from a Cottage Industry and get her robins egg blue paint formula here.
Thank you, Tracey!

Do you like the new look of the blog? I thought she could use some freshening for summer :) Do you think it's too bright? Too white? I'd love your thoughts...and

Tomorrow is the big day!!

I'll be sharing colors from my home and I'm hoping Mr. Linky is going to cooperate~I know y'all have had some problems with him lately. This is my first time, so do you have any pointers? I'll try to have it up around 10 p.m. central time tonight so you can post before you go to bed if you want~have a great day!

  10. Enjoying your paint posts and your special guests. You certainly found some fantastic girls that are sharing their favorites with us. I'm keeping my eyes and ears open as I desperately need to paint my living room/kitchen.

  12. I like you new blog color. I also think Tracey's color is really pretty, but it's showing up as more of a light green on my computer :/ I'll go check out her blog.

  14. Love the new white background & simple design! I'm all about that myself & wish more bloggers would follow suit & get rid of the busy backgrounds. White is so much easier to read.

    Love Tracey's blog too & that is a beautiful color.

    If you do not have Gold Mr. linky, you may have problems with it. I'm not sure if it's fixed yet or not for the non-paying people. I had to upgrade to Gold ($10 per year) to get mine working for my recent parties.

  15. What a GORGOUES color! I'm ready for a paint make over in my house. That's giving me some ideas. :)

  16. I love the pics. I just have to say though that a pretty little lamp like that would certainly get broken on top of my dryer, what with all the clothes that get stacked there and left. lol

  17. It IS a beautiful color. When we remodeled our bathroom, I marched straight to Home Depot with Tracey's formula. Now our house is on the market, so I'm going to have to find a room in our new one to paint the same color... :)

  18. Oh no... I went to Home Depot to have this paint mixed up and since she posted her formula back in 2007 they have updated all of their bases and the pastel base she used is no longer available!! I am hoping that she will get us an updated formula soon :)

  19. Alwys Shoppin~ my friend just painted her office with the formula and instead of the pastel base, she just had them use a white base and it was still lovely...

  20. It is certainly interesting for me to read this post. Thanx for it. I like such themes and anything that is connected to this matter. I definitely want to read a bit more on that blog soon.
