“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

A few posts back I had mentioned that I've been buying new egg cups for my Easter Collection. The largest of the photos is my latest that I found at Tuesday Morning [appropriate for the day, don't you think?] There's a funny thing about this. While I was choosing the red one, I was seen picking through them all in search of the 'front end' of the chicken...Bud blatantly said, "You won't see an egg coming from the front side." I didn't say it, but thought it...'smart a$$'!!! But, I DID stop searching for the elusive chicken head. LOL Below in the smaller photos, the pink bunny I found at CVS Pharmacy, the yellow bunny is from HEB's, a local, Texan grocery chain store, and the last one of the rainbow egg shell with duck's feet is from Cracker Barrel. I'm slowly getting them placed on my dining room hutch ---if my count is correct, there are 28 now. Nothing close to my 100s of Santas. Good thing about these, they're a LOT SMALLER to store away after the holiday! hehehehehe


  1. Cute idea, can't wait to see them all on display.

    You have 100's of Santas?? Can't wait til Christmas.

  2. Very much spring like. Have a wonderful RT. Thanks for stopping by Driller's Place.

  3. What a unique collection! What a great Easter-themed Ruby Tuesday!! :D

  4. Those are adorable! I have hundreds of Santas too....I just never pack them up. They stay in the 'Santa cabinet' year 'round. I just can't bear to pack them up.

  5. Annie what a whimsical collection! I love them!

  6. What beautiful egg cups...
    I think you and I need to send our men on a road tour. It will be called the B&B Smart A$$ rednecks tour. Your B has the same sense of humor and my B!!
    Have you checked your email?
    Hugs C

  7. :) Love it Anni-all of them are neat!!

    LOL-Maybe a new collection idea for me!!


  8. You're having fun with your collections! So cute!

  9. Cute and colourful - perfect for Easter eggs :)

  10. Those are all so cute. I was just looking at the ones in Cracker Barrel the other day. I was very tempted to buy one.

  11. I love those! I don't have any egg cups but I remember the ones my mom used to have. Fun memories.

  12. They are really cute certainly looks nice on a Easter breakfast table !
    Have a look on this wonderful exposition

  13. I'm still giggling over what Bud said! lol Your egg cups are so darn cute and what a great idea to have them out as an Easter collection. I'm planning on going to the thrift shop today and I'll have to look for the egg cups I'm sure I saw there last time. If they're unusual, I'll buy them for you but if they're just ordinary I'll leave them there. lol I just can't remember what they looked like, just that they were egg cups.

    28F here this morning and it's not supposed to warm up any time fast this week. Sigh. xoxo

  14. I never even knew there was such a thing as egg cups. Where have I been all my life? Smart A$$ BWAHAHAHA Oh I couldn't have resisted that comment either LOL Have a wonderful day :)

  15. A sweet collection Anni!
    Don't you just love Cracker Barrel - the food and the gift shop. They always have such cute items for sale.

    Bright scarlet is just the right thing
    To make a sad heart start to sing;
    It fills you with cheer—
    Now isn’t that clear?
    It’s better than any old bling!
