egg cups

with easter just over a month away, i thought i'd do an feature on egg cups. i never really got into collecting these little holders, but i found three that i couldn't pass up. they are shaped like a chick and were produced by the french glass company, opalex. what i love most about them are the colors... pale pink, milk glass, and the perfect shade of turquoise. these little guys have a permanent home in my kitchen cabinet.

here are some other egg cups that are for sale in my etsy shop:

  5. I love the chic ones! To be honest, I recently drank a mixed shot out of one due to there being no other suitable glass in this particular condo I was staying in. I am shocked to see that very egg cup here! Too funny.
