Weekly Photo Challenge: UNUSUAL, 2

Staying in the realm of the kitchen (my favorite room of the house), here are two unusual items. Or one unusual item, two of them! Can you tell what they are? Have you ever seen any like these?

They are egg cozies, of course. (What, you don’t have cozies for your eggs?)

Like a tea cozy for the afternoon teapot, only these are for keeping your boiled egg hot in the morning. My German friend has little crocheted angora caps for hers. These were a gift from our Danish friend, who found them in a whimsical Scandinavian store in Portland, Maine. For obvious reasons, I think of them as His-and-Her cozies. They certainly dress up our breakfast table when boiled eggs are on the menu!

    what a great picture!

  2. A serving of cute for breakfast, please? Those egg cozies are sunnier than a glass of OJ.

  3. It’s funny, because I was looking at the picture and thinking, “But we have these all over the place in England …. how can someone from Berkshire think they’re unusual?”
    Then I read you are from Berkshire in AMERICA, not Berkshire, England …. so it all makes sense now! :-)

      I still have to look carefully when I do a google search for the Berkshires — as often as not, the things that appear are in England!
      We’ve now moved from the Berkshires east over the mountains to the Pioneer Valley, to a town called Northampton. That must sound pretty familiar to you also!!!!
      Thanks for your visit.

  4. They are so stinky cute!! Would love to have them for my boiled eggs. Never ever seen anything like them before. I find them very unusual. :-)

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen egg cozies before. They sure are an adorable way to brighten up your day. :-)

      It’s not a big USA thing, although they’re very big in England, and in Germany — where my friend crocheted her tiny mohair (or angora, fuzzy anyway) egg cozies to fit her average egg.
      You can get nice big tea cozies for your teapot too, if you’re not a coffee-in-the-morning person!

    Ah – now we know who ate your morning eggs! They’re cute as kittens, those two.
    Your post had me rummaging in my Easter box for the egg cozies I knitted for my kids long ago. I’ll have to write about them now. My teapot wears a cozy too, all the way from England (it’s great having friends across the pond that like to share. They sent the pot, the cozy, AND the tea!)

    Have you posted these before? I swear I’ve seen these earlier, too…. (Am I losing my mind? Or developing amazing psychic powers? I wouldn’t be overly surprised by either development…)

    • Touch2Touch says:

      It’s possible — but I don’t remember. (Of course my memory is notoriously laggard.)
      I think it’s more likely you’re developing the amazing psychic powers. On the other hand —- ;-)
