I know we aren’t supposed to put all of our eggs in one basket, but I threw caution to the wind and did it.
First off, we’re almost out of eggs. 🙂
But the real reason is I found the cutest little basket at the thrift store.
It was just the right size to hold my less than dozen eggs.
Did I need a cute little basket?
No I didn’t, but the price was right, it was sturdy, and the patina was calling my name.
I won’t leave my real eggs in them, but I found some realistic looking faux ones on Amazon (affiliate link), so I’m going to buy some to put in it.
I love using chicken eggs in my photos, but if you take them from the fridge to room temperature, they get condensation on them, so the faux ones won’t do that.
We’re still waiting to get our first egg from our small flock of chickens.
They’ve been practicing their “I laid an egg” clucking sounds, so we know it should be soon.
My daughter and I are giving them lots of pep talks, but they are taking their sweet time.
My husband threatened to cook them, but they didn’t take him seriously either.
… Okay, enough about eggs and cute little baskets.
I do have something else to show you.
I finally have a new tiered stand available in my online shop.
It’s been months since my husband and I made one, but I finally found the right pieces to do it.
This is a 3-tier stand made out of enamelware bowls, all perfectly aged from use.
The spindle holding them together was the leg from an antique table that I painted.
I hope we’ll be able to make another one soon. I’m looking for one more bowl for it.
I’ll let you know when it’s available!
