A Sophisticated Egg

Aunt Dawn gave Lucette a dozen eggs from her chickens. The shells are just the haziest of gray-blue in color.

Her South American chicks from Easter must be quite happy, as they are most prolific egg-layers. Seen here nestled next to brown and white eggs, you can see the subtle hue and air of sophistication.

And if you like eggs, oh my. Just look at those golden, golden yolks. Rich and velvety perfection.


  1. I have recently found that a new law was passed in Lansing that allows city-dwellers to have up to 3 chickens and I am soooooooo tempted to start researching chicken care and get myself a couple!

  2. There are very few things in life that are as simple and as beautiful as an egg. Lucette's are lovely!

  3. somehow those eggs make me 1:50 am on new year's day :) Happy New Year, hope it's a great one for u and your loved ones :)

  4. That top photo is gorgeous! And the lovely colored shell is very special indeed.
