This is just a wee example of my marble egg collection. I keep cool colors in a tall glass urn and warm colors in another one. I started collecting marble eggs when I was 10 years old and lived in France. We would visit different countries and I would be given a very small allowance to buy souvenirs on our trips. The eggs were always very inexpensive and came from the country we were visiting. My first egg was purchased in Turkey at the wonderful Turkish Bazaar, it was also my first experience haggling. I soon found more beautiful eggs in Greece and Italy, and have been on the hunt ever since.
