Cream & Sugar Anyone?

I love creamers and have collected them for years
Do you know what happens when you collect creamers? you also seem to collect sugar bowls and even stranger for me sets of cream and sugars!
I filled the cubbies with my surprising collection of 
Vintage Cream and Sugars
Honestly I had no idea I had so many sets!
In all sorts of colors
and all sorts of shapes
and sizes
Some were gifts but most were thrifty finds
This little green set is my smallest and I use them all the time!

I have all kinds of cream and sugar sets
Pink 'Imperial Ware' melamine to
Cobalt Blue Depression Glass
Classic Milk Glass to
Blue Ridge Pottery
From unknown makers to
the classic 1950's Ballerina pattern
 I love them but some are going to be sold to make room for other things! 
(if you see something you like email me)

This is my favorite set I think
Something about the color and the lines
made by W. S. George just call my name!
This display has been on of Mr ALC's favorites
maybe because he loves coffee so much??

Next up for the cubbies will be vintage creamers! 

I'm joining

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

I can certainly understand why this display is Mr. ALC's favorite. I love the colors and I definitely love my coffee.

What a fun collection! You have such a great place to display your treasures! It's fun to get them altogether to really enjoy them!

That's so cute, Linda. I see you are having fun with your cupboard, too.

Cream and sugar sets are such a sweet thing to collect. I love your many different looks.

Claudia said...

Oh goodness, I love these. So many wonderful designs and colors, Linda. They look great in your cubbies.

That 'collection thing' kinda sneaks up on you doesn't it? They are all pretty, I love the Fiesta but my favorite has to be the white square set on the left with the cool raised design-enjoy:@)

sissie said...

Hi Linda,
These are all so cute. Who can resist creamers and sugar bowls, I know I can't!

Hope you've been doing okay. I'm trying to get around to visit everyone. I've been aways on some family matters and trying now to catch up with one of my favorite!


Susan said...

Pretty, pretty, pretty, Linda. Love your cream and sugar collection. It's a good one! Susan

Great minds think alike! I too have found myself collecting cream and sugar sets!! Great collection!!!

Carlene @ Organized Clutter said...

I have a few sets of cream pitchers and sugar bowls but not a full fledged collection like yours! I love the appeal of collections displayed together!

Zootsuitmama said...

Wow! I know what you mean. Something about cute little versions of pitchers are just too good to pass by. I have some of the ones you have, of course. I think great thrifting vintage lovers minds think alike! Very cute display!

Gina said...

What a great collection! I love all the colors & shapes. This was a fun change to the cubbies.

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

joanne said...

we are truly kindred spirits!

France Guérin said...

This is nice! Different shapes and colors. I'm not around much Linda but hoping you are doing fine after reading some of your last postings. Hugs!

Sue McPeak said...

Well, one thing for've got coffee serving covered. Which is a good thing cause you have enough creamers for every flavor of creamers...even real cream. And sugar cubes, packets, and granulated. I'll have mine black. LOL!!! Great collection, Linda...I too love the blue!

Sarah said...

Linda, fun to see this collection. I think your cubby idea is the best. Such a fun way to spotlight a collection and rotate different selections in and out through the year. Look forward to seeing more......Sarah

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

Ha! It's one of my favorites, too, and you know I like my coffee. I drink it black, but I still have a small collection of creamers and sugar bowls.

Ames said...

My word Linda! I'd love to see where you keep all this cool stuff.~Ames

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

What a great creamer and sugar display case. :) Mine are all over the place..poor things!
Have a great weekend!

Marigene said...

I have to have my coffee plain old black, but it doesn't stop me from really liking this display! I am not sure if it is the colors or shapes that appeal so much, possibly both.
Have a great rest of the weekend, Linda!

Shelia said...

Hi Linda! Oh, so pretty! I love all of your sweet creams and sugars and the colors! What a happy place. Now I use these too but I don't drink coffee - just tea, and of course my Cherry Diet Dr. Pepper, with no milk or sugar.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
