Egg Cups

Monday, March 30, 2015

Since Easter is around the corner,  I have eggs on the brain.  It seems like everyone's Instagram feed is full of brightly colored eggs.  Eggs being painted on, eggs dyed with vegetables.   Addison is too old to dye eggs but I do love to look at everyone's beautiful colorful eggs.  But the more eggs is see the more eggs I want to eat.  I am not talking about hard boiled eggs.  I like my yolks runny.  I like to dip my bacon in a sunny side up egg.  Or a poached egg on top of a salad.  Or a soft cooked egg and dipping your toast in the yolk.

All this egg craving has made me think about egg cups.  The Chosen One has got me a little obsessed with egg cups.  She has decided to buy different types of vintage ones.   I think she is going to have a beautiful collection of them one day.


Her is her beautiful picture of her egg cup.  Doesn't that look delicious? We might be best friends but we have different taste.  The Chosen One is more elegant and refined.  

She would probably love these egg cups:


A Japanese vintage egg cup is perfect for The Chosen One.


This one might be too colorful for her but I think the top is interesting. 


I am more quirky and wild.  And love these:


My version of Japanese egg cups.  LOL!
You can buy them here.


I just love the little chicken feet.  


This one is really artistic.  
You can buy it here.


I don't know if this one would be easy to eat with but it sure is cute.
You can buy it here.


I believe this is the cutest egg cup and bread holder I have ever seen.
You can buy it here.


I don't know about these.  A little too cool for me.  I just think they are for the some to match their modern decor style.

Out of all of them I really love the bird on the branch one or the chicken feet.  Who knew there were so many different types of egg cups.  

Well now I need to make some eggs to satisfy my egg craving.  

Talk to you soon,

Pinwheels by Paper and Pi

I know I know.  I was going to start blogging on a regular basis and then I didn't post anything last week.  I got so busy with orders, snow,  and family stuff but I am back.   Yes, it snowed last week. Can you believe it snowed in Georgia?  It was beautiful and not as crazy as last year.  I am happy that Addison got to see snow again since he is a Georgia baby.  We had a snowball fight and relaxed at home for 3 days.  Since school was closed, Addison and I watched a lot of movies.  I thought it would fun to watch all the Oscar nominated movies since we didn't see any of them, except for "The Lego Movie".  I guess that counts.  We watched "Whiplash", "Birdman", and "Boyhood".  The were all good but "Whiplash" was our favorite.  "Whiplash" was amazing!  Addison said it was the best movie he had ever seen.  He watched it twice in one day.  If you haven't seen it, I suggest you watch it.  We believe it should have won Best Picture.  It had Addison sweating and me yelling at the TV screen.

While I was gone I did continue to cook and craft, I made my favorite pork tenderloin dish.  The recipe is from Tyler Florence and you can find it here.  The chimichurri sauce is so good.  I also
made a yummy roasted tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches (of course).  I will share my roasted tomato soup recipe soon.



I purchased the new Baked Occasion cook book and haven't baked one thing out of yet.  I should never be too busy that I stop baking.  I really need to start baking this week to make up for this travesty.  :)




My orders have been actually taking up most of my time.  I love it when people purchase my creations.  I hear people tell me they like my stuff but one can always wonder if people are just telling you that to be nice.  When I receive an order, it really brighten my day and makes me realize I do create beautiful things.  This week has been pinwheels, pinwheels, pinwheels.  I got an amazing custom order to create pinwheels that could be used for table numbers.  What a great idea!  I had so much fun making theses especially since the pinwheels were the colors of the rainbow.  One can not smile when they are creating with colorful paper.  I love the way the turned out.





Since I was in a pinwheel mood, I decided that I need to introduce some more pinwheels to my shop. I try to make different types of pinwheels and think these turned out so cool.  Star Pinwheels!




I am thinking they would be great for Memorial Day or 4th of July.  But I was also thinking I could do them in different colors like black and gold for a birthday party or graduation.  

What do you guys think?  I am wondering what other interesting pinwheels I can create.  Well time to finish up these orders.

Talk to you soon,
