This cute little egg cup was my Granny's she got it for her Birthday in 1928
So I thought being Easter it would be a good time to share it with you all
So now the 80 or so year old egg cup has come to live at our place.
As I am the only Granddaughter, Granny has now entrusted this to me.
It came with strict directions (of course) to use it.
Don't just put it in a cupboard!!
Well now each of Granny's Great grandchildren have eaten a boiled egg & soldiers out of it,
but never the less after that it was banished to the cupboard.
You see the last time soldier boy used it I dropped it when washing it up.
Not a chip nor crack but I tell you everything moved in slow motion as it fell.
I have the fondest memories going back to about when I was four of going to Granny's and having a boiled egg for breakfast in this egg cup.
Of course it became a little ritual of that is what I would have for breakfast at her house and her telling me the little story of how she got it.
In the 1920's with War & the Great Depression it was not common for children to receive presents for their Birthdays other than a little clutch of lollies.
She must of thought she was the luckiest girl in the world at that time to receive it
Just like I feel now she has passed it on to me.
Love you Gran
