Egg Cups! Real Proper Animal Ones. We LOVE.

Noodling about the interwebs, as I do (what? It’s my job, people!), I just stuck my head in the door of PenelopeTom to see what was new – and fell instantly and deeply in love with a hare and a zebra.

Oh yes I did.

Now tell me you’re not ooh-ing a little bit too, way down deep inside.

Yes they’re a bit weird, definitely kitsch, oddly whimsical… but they’re downright HAPPY-MAKING.

And they’re not alone – there’s a whole collection of these hand painted stoneware animal face egg cups in a variety of animal face designs.

They remind me very much of my large collection of Wade Whimsies when I was young – the glossy finish and rich colours are just the same. And oh those faces! The hare is charming (though a little busy to be waiting around for you to finish your egg), the zebra is smiling, and the goat is about to tell you a really naughty joke.

Each holds a single egg, obviously, and I think every breakfast table needs one (or they could be great as a quirky desktop mini plant pot for a succulent or cactus).

The stoneware animal egg cups can be found at PenelopeTom, and will be yours for a yolk under £11 each.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
