A Riddle Game

Everyone is talking about eggs!

Blue ones, brown ones, pink ones and broken ones!

If I had chickens, I would be talking about them, I will have them again someday :)

I am working on something right now, and wont post pics until Im done, so I thought we could have some fun.

"A box without hinges or lid, but inside a golden treasure is hid"

Another time and place, some might have a hard time with the answer to this riddle. Obviously, it is an egg, but can anyone tell me where the riddle came from, who made it famous and how?

To the winner goes a hardy congrats and bragging rights ;-)

Fun but I was way too late. Amy's fast on the draw. All this egg talk has me looking for some hens.

Okay I thought my spinning was going pretty well, until I saw yours. Absolutely beautiful! Someday I hope to master it that well.
