L'AUTRUCHE OU L'OEUF?
I had a few ostrich eggs at one point, brought back from Tanzania, but moving around took its toll on my collection and I am now left with only two which I try to protect as best I can by displaying them high on the mantle in the living room. One sits on a Catherine Noll bracelet, the other on an antique urn-shaped terracotta dish.
I love the look of an ostrich egg. Simplicity, perfect design, great color and a size that makes a statement even when standing alone.
