Empty House, Warm Egg

Our son, Finn, has taken to eating soft boiled eggs in the morning before school. It's not a very common for children in the states and when I went looking for fun egg cups online they were all in England. Except for this little guy, the Egg Robot! He keeps the egg warm and holds the spoon for Finn when not in use.
Finn's eyes bugged out of his head when I surprised him with it this week. I love those eye popping happy kid moments.
From the same seller on Ebay I also ordered a toast press that was supposed to leave the impression of the Virgin Mary on my toast. I was really looking forward to toast with pictures(obviously, I am easily amused), but sadly, you have to squint really hard to see Mary.

We found this old farmhouse last weekend while driving some backroads. The people living here would have had a fantastic view of pasture and mountains beyond. But it was obviously left empty years ago, and it feels forlorn now.

Lumplings are coming right along and I hope to have an update soon. One of the Lumpling adoptions fell through with that last batch, so I'll be putting that Lump back on the site tomorrow probably.

Thank goodness that Virgin Mary toast press did not make it down here to Pasadena otherwise we would be inundated with many news stories of holy interventions.

I love that egg cup! It is so cute and original. I have a collection and I've gotten them all from eBay, and they were all from England, except the ones I got at Crate & Barrel. But this one is perfect. Kim.
