E is for Egg cup - I am Queen of the Tchotchkes

Ok, I admit it I am Queen of the tchotchkes/knick knacks/trinkets, especially in my kitchen. When we moved into our new house and it had a larger kitchen, I was so happy about it for many reasons, but one of them was that I could display more tchotchkes!

One of my favourite tchotchkes are egg cups. I collect them and use them a lot because I eat eggs frequently. I'm not a morning person, so when I'm groggy, eating an egg in the morning, eating it in a cute egg cup makes the morning a little bit more fun. It's always good to start your day with a smile!

My egg cup collection, (so far...)

    1. Exactly! Why not have a variety of cups or mugs? I agree, it depends on how I'm feeling, to which I'll choose to use! :)

    1. Wow, thanks for becoming a follower! Tchotchke is kinda like a Polish slang word. It's funny to say, but not funny to try to spell!

    1. Thx! I remember eating soft boiled eggs a lot as a kid too, but we didn't have cute cups! Hopefully when my son's older he'll appreciate eating eggs out of them! :)
