“You’ve got to crack a few eggs to make an omelette”. An adorable little girl stands on a chair as she prepares a meal of eggs. She holds a large frying pan in one hand and an egg in the other hand. Broken egg shells lie on the chair near her feet. The child has a sweet smile. This vintage postcard was published by Reunies de Nancy.
