The second thing I won, was this little egg Owl from Vanessa. It is a Cascarone. She sat around the house looking pretty, waiting to have her photo taken. I left her in the back room on the desk, in this milk glass dish which I love ( a very recent acquisition from a very down at heel and wonderful indoor market we found in Rochester last weekend). I got up late on Tuesday morning, and almost the first thing I did was to spill a plastic pot of cream from the fridge. It went everywhere, including down the back of the base board which meant much frustration as I tried to move it, all in my night clothes. Cross sums it up, but not quite. Then I went in the back room to give Cassie her biscuits. There was another mess on the floor-this time of tiny pieces of pink paper and little shiny hearts. Where is my egg?! I found the poor Owl girl pushed right back under the desk, where, no doubt, little paws could not reach anymore. I was so pleased to see she was only broken at the back, and surprised to discover the sweet message inside. I would never have broken my egg myself, so Cassie did me a favour!
The dish is oven proof! Who would believe it? I have never seen such decorative cookware. It says 'Fire King USA Oven Ware' on the back.
Thanks Carole and Vanessa!
