Robins Egg Blue

Sometimes when I see the perfect shade of robins egg blue - the actual egg or maybe even a Tiffany box - I'm reminded that it is my favorite color.
I found a huge lot of old Petersham Ribbon at a millinery warehouse. Petersham ribbon usually has a bumpy selvage and can be shaped to the edge of the brim of a hat nicely. When I found the boxes and boxes of ribbon I realized that there were at least 24 shades of Robins Egg Blue available to the hat maker in Paris during the 1920's and 30's! I bought the lot and am enjoying making these Parisian Flower Company Boxes filled with vintage ribbon, flowers and notions.
