My Collection

I thought I'd share my collection of vintage restaurant creamers with you that I have been collecting for a few years now. It is always fun when I come across a color I don't have. I'm still searching for a true red one.

I love to line them up in my kitchen window and as you can see I found some signs of spring in my yard yesterday. The creamers are so cheerful when I use them this way.

This little creamer Jana found for me at a sale for .10 cents. Isn't is cute with the oil painting I found for .25 cents. I occasionally look for my creamers on ebay, but once in awhile I find them at estate sales, etc. I try to pick them up for $2.00 to $3.00, but once in a while I will pay more if it is a color I like.

Happy collecting !!!

I love the little yellow creamer by the picture - very, very cute. I'm loving this weather - oops! I'm feeling a little sick! Do you think you could fill in for me tomorrow? Ha Ha! Keep up the good work!

The creamers are cute on their own, but even more of an impact displayed in a row. Simply charming and very springy with the little posies!
Did you see my blog with the little chick I added to my collection? I bought it at your shop when I was out there in February. I love your shop!!!
Check it out!

I have always been drawn to the shape of things like creamers, pitchers and teapots. I just love your collection! Can't you just think of dozens of things that look good in them?
