Wintertime Photo Scavenger Hunt Item #16: A Collection
I don't have an E-Bay account. I've tended to avoid the online auction site because it seems too complicated to me. Kindof like Etsy. I'd like to sell art work on either (or both), but not enough to actually learn how the system operates.
But I have a friend, Faye, who is an E-Bay expert. She lives in Eugene, Oregon, where my son Henry goes to school. Sometimes when I visit Henry, I stay with Faye. She is an excellent cook and is particularly well known for her fantastic breakfasts.
Her breakfasts feature wonderful scones and, often, coddled eggs. I loved the eggs so much that I decided I wanted to get some egg coddlers, so that I could make them on my own.
It turns out that the best place to purchase egg coddlers is on E-Bay. So, Faye told me to go to the E-Bay site and find some coddlers that I would like and she would help me figure out the process. It was so much fun to scroll through page after page of beautiful coddlers, trying to decide which ones to purchase. I had planned to just buy one set, but, in an "E-Bay Moment" quickly purchased three different sets for a total of seven coddlers!
I could see how E-Bay could become completely addicting. I love my collection of egg coddlers and thought they would be a good thing to photograph for Item #16 on the Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt. I also thought it would be a good first entry in Helena's "Pairs" Photo project. I'm calling my pair: "Whole" and "Part."
Do you make coddled eggs? Do you do E-Bay? What about Etsy?
