Good Morning Sunshine!

Isn't this a beautiful way to be greeted in your own garden?
I wish every morning would be sunny like this...
Enjoy your mornings!

Sugar and Creamers seem to find ME!

I've been asked what I collect or look for while Thrifting or combing through Antique sales, and I thought the simple answer was Depression Glass. But taking a look at the items that I've found, I've now realized that the majority of them are Sugars and Creamers!

Many of them are Depression Glass, but the rest are Vintage Glassware or China that catch my eye at the time and pique my interest.

Sometimes I'm able to pick up more pieces to add to the Sugar and Creamers, other times they'll be the only pieces in my collection.

Very odd. I know some people limit their collecting to Tea Cups, or Shakers or Butter Dishes - but Sugar and Creamers? (I rarely even take Sugar or Cream in my Tea!)

Some of the sets are from my memories, I do know this started me off. I saw the same Sugar and Creamer that my Mom always used and started from there.

The set holds fond memories of family get togethers, and I want to foster that with my daughters. I try to use fancy glassware when my family comes over, and even try to use it daily.

So enough self examination, I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of my sugar and creamers!
