Yoo-hoo.....where are you?

Spring.....I'm waiting. So far, 2 days into spring and 2 days of snow and flurries. The heck with it!! I'm forging forward (in my mind). I took a hint from my blog friend Julie from Dog Trot Farm. She's been buying bundles of pretty cut flowers to bust the late winter blues. So today I bought 2 bundles of daffodils - one for home and one for my office. Tomorrow they will be opened up with bright yellow faces

Not only will they be pretty and perk me up, they also help raise money for Cancer Research. Win - Win, right!

I got another treat today - a package. Some time ago I read a blog post about how to coddle eggs using beautiful vintage porcelain egg coddlers. I became obsessed. I looked everywhere and couldn't find one. I eventually turned to Etsy and found several. I ordered one

It's so pretty and it is in perfect condition. This weekend I'll be trying it. It kind of reminds me of the old egg cups we used to have. My grandfather wouldn't eat an egg unless it was in an egg cup.

And the seller had everything packaged so nicely and she added a cute little change purse and a sweet tiny note

I got a huge kick out of the little note and envelope. They're just like in Downton Abbey. Whenever they get mail, the letters are teeny, just like this.

That's the days news.

  1. Daffodils are so sweet, I just love them. Enjoy! I love the egg coddler but I'm wondering what a coddled egg it soft boiled? I miss Downton Abbey and your note does remind me of it...have a good weekend and I hope your snow..and ours...leaves very soon. I'm ready for some sun and warmth!

  2. Enjoy your daffodils. Pretty egg coddle.


  3. Ack! Blogger ate my comment :(
    What, pray tell is a coddled egg? Whatever it is, the coddler is very pretty.
    I love daffodils. I hope mine haven't frozen.
    Hugs :)

  4. Hi Kim, pretty Daffodils for a great cause, I buy them too, make me cheerful......Love your cuddlier, so beautiful...Enjoy, Francine.

  5. I don't know what a coddled egg is but it is pretty porcelain. I bought a flowering plant too the other day just to cheer me up. Spring will be here sooner or later and we will appreciate it!

  6. Love colorful spring flowers! Such a gorgeous egg dish.

  7. Your coddled egg holder looks beautiful.

    I hope that you enjoy your daffodils and your new egg coddler.

    Did you saw the huge car pile up in Edmonton because of the storm. Over 100 vehicles involved in the accidents. I think that we got off easy.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  8. pretty flowers I haven't had a coddled egg in a very long time my grammie use to make them.
    we are cold and snow flurries nothing like spring.

  9. Hi Kim, I put a bright yellow tulips screen saver on my computer so now every time you turn it on that is what you saw. We didn't get the weather that they have predicted for us and hope we didn't. It was terribly cold with the wind being such a factor.. I didn't feel to whoopy when I first got up and it was so cold that I just decided to stay home. I may just stay home again tomorrow. Your coddled egg holder is beautiful and if I remember right it is kinda like our poached eggs. It has been a long time since I have seen one. Have a great Friday and it's the weekend. Take care. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  10. Oh, what a pretty egg coddler! I love the tiny note too, that is very cute. I always wanted to get mail in tiny envelopes like that. You know, since you're getting your passport taken care of you could come visit our spring here.... *hint hint* ;)

  11. What a great idea. Daffodils are my very favorite flower, probably because they're the first ones who dare come up in my flower garden after the snow melts. Love them! You've inspired me to go out and buy some fresh flowers. I've got to do something to help spring realize that it's supposed to melt all this snow!

  12. Kim the egg coddler is so pretty! I took a hint from Julie a couple of weeks ago and bought a bouquet of flowers to cheer me up over our lack of Spring. They are still alive and well and happy on the sun porch.. :) Chicky is watching the wild turkeys in the back yard!

  13. What a lovely egg coddler! Also, I want to pick up some daffodils now! This house needs a burst of cheerful color!

    Have a good Friday!

  14. I'm curious how that egg coddler works. Looking forward to reports; maybe I need one, too.

  15. Hi Kim, Ok what is a egg coddler?
    It does look so pretty the little coddler.
    Flowers always make me smile. If I won a million dollars I would have fresh flowers delivered once a week to my house. Lol.Cheri

  16. I can't stand it. I have to have one. I think I'll go to the thrift shop up the street tomorrow and see if they have one.

  17. I've heard of coddled eggs but didn't know there was coddled to coddle them in! You are so enlightening!!! And yes, I've noticed the tiny envelopes those Downton Abbey people get ~ makes you feel kind of like them, doesn't it?? Such a gentler time ~
