Diamonds and Spades and Clubs, Oh My!
I'm just crazy for these Ostrich Eggs painted with card motifs. In fact, I've always liked the card motif for as long as I can remember. This is rather surprising as I don't play cards. I even own two chocolate brown corduroy card table covers! I can't explain why.
Still, just because you don't host your own bridge parties and poker nights does not mean you can't be a card shark too!
