I am rather fond of donkeys -- I studied them for my Ph.D dissertation, and am currently the proud owner of a miniature jenny. I am also an avid collector of egg cups. So how could I not love this pair of brown donkey egg cups? And the fact that there is also a set of matching brown donkey salt and pepper shakers just makes them even more desirable:
So what if they have to be shipped all the way from the UK? In my opinion they are worth it! And it doesn't hurt that ever since I read Brighty of the Grand Canyon by Marguerite Henry as a child I associate donkeys with the desert southwest, so if we do move to New Mexico these little cuties would fit right in. I'm sure my own little brown donkey would agree!
