Remember when Don and I installed these bookshelves and this little wooden egg cup (a gift from Don and Scout) held center stage?
Well…now that I’ve got the bug again, but mostly because of the generosity of my readers, this is what it looks like:
The entire shelf is full of egg cups.
There are the set of four wooden egg cups (3 are on the shelf below) and the yellow ‘man’ egg cup from reader Barb in Canada. The blue chick egg cup from fellow blogger Linda, the rooster egg cup from fellow blogger Susie. Recently, I bought the little boy and these two egg cups:
I don’t know anything about them save for the fact that I really like them. Marked Japan.
And on Monday, a package arrived from reader Judy, who lives in Washington. Imagine my delight as I unwrapped these:
This is a vintage Hankscraft stoneware double egg cup. I’ve always wanted one of these. Is it just me or is the design vaguely Art Deco?
I love this sweet and sunny egg cup with a little chick. The inside of the cup is a lovely sky blue. Marked Japan.
Lovely. No mark, but it’s definitely stoneware.
And isn’t this the prettiest color combination? Marked Japan.
Judy, thank you. I love these additions to my collection.
Boy, have I been blessed. I don’t take it for granted, believe me. Thank you, one and all.
• By the way, another round of emails went out the other day purporting to be from me. All of this is from the email hack that happened a few months back. Ignore them. They are not from me. One of my readers thought they might be tied in to the WP issue I referenced yesterday. Nope. Just more crap from the hackers. I always receive a copy of your post comments via email, so if you’ve ever left a comment, you’re in that list of email addresses. I’m sorry about that. But we are all familiar enough with these emails that we do ignore them, right?
Never click on anything in any email, unless you are absolutely sure it is to be trusted. If you look at these emails, you can immediately see that they are a sham and not anything that I would write. I get them all the time from friends who have also been hacked. They usually go to spam, which is where they belong.
I hope I never have to write this warning again. I am well and truly tired of the whole thing.
• I’m under the weather today. I’ve been feeling extremely sinusy and/or allergy-ridden, as has Don, but in the last two days it has morphed into something that is almost like a cold. But it isn’t. Last night I barely slept, and I’m congested and coughing and, more than anything, annoyed. I want to work outside, and I did yesterday, but now I’m paying for it. Don made my coffee for me this morning and I’m sitting in my blogging chair feeling sorry for myself.
Waaah. Enough already.
