thinking outside the BOX... or egg cup....

(egg cup by Gary Rith)
You will recall that yesterday I posted my FIRST EVER egg cup for Easter...I surprised the wife with it.  She loves it!  The cat loves it.  Ditto the dog...and a zillion people on facebook BUT... the wife does not like softboiled eggs for breakfast...doesn't like hardboiled much either, actually, how could I have known?  We have never had an egg cup, or a reason to use it....

LATER THAT SAME day as we prepare tall fruity drinks to enjoy by the poolside (haha, yeah, right) the wife is like "think outside the box! Or egg cup! Use it for cocktail hour snacks!"

Have a great Monday!

Mrs. Tastycakes is one smart cookie!

All potters know that the more uses you can suggest the more likely you are to sell it. You could make these in many different sizes! How about one of your egg cups big enough to hold a cupcake?!

Sort of like that mama chicken is going "Whow, where did these green eggs with red insides come from?" I'm with your wife, no boiled eggs for me either.

Brilliant! The creativity at your place is phenomenal. The rooster on the egg cup looks joyous. Hope you had a great day.

I don't eat eggs either so to me that looks like the world's cutest secret candy dish!
