Opportunity Shopping

IMG_2319These beautiful pastel, retro egg cups cost $4-00 for the setl. I bought them in a cute shop in Trentham, Victoria then took them to my friends house that night and just had to show her. She took one look and told me they looked like a set of ramekins she owned, by Martin Boyd, a ceramic artist belonging to a very famous Australian artistic family. She brought the ramekins out and we checked the engraved signature under the pieces and, sure enough, my little egg cups are also by Martin Boyd. Wow. What a find. I am a little chuffed.
