Gracious Hospital-i-Tea Blog-a-Thon ~ Decor-a-Tea #3

For my next Decor-a-Tea post I’m sharing my random sugar and creamers that I have displayed here and there in my house.

 

Every time I see a complete sugar and creamer set at Goodwill or any thrift store I’m tempted to buy them.

I keep some of my tea and other entertaining goodies in this old cabinet from Dear’s parents.

An old pink depression glass sugar and creamer.

More Royal Albert Moss Rose accessories and a Homer Laughlin plate.

For more Decor-a-Tea posts head over to LaTeaDah’s.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. I love that you posted about sugar and creamers! You have a great collection. After all, what would a teapot be without the rest of the pieces to keep it company? Thank you for stopping by to visit me. Every time I visit you I admire your blog header. I think the photo is wonderful! ~Kathy

  2. Hi Ellen! The sugar and creamers are all unique and pretty! I can see why it would be hard to pass them by! The blue and white set is my favorite! The cabinet is beautiful and I love the red flowered plate behind the depression glass set! Was that a goodwill find too? I must not get there early enough! LOL! I never find treasures such as these! Thanks for sharing! Rhonda 🙂

    Rhonda, You got me pegged. Yep the flowered plate behind the depression glass is from Goodwill. Most of my pretty goodies come from my husband’s mother or great , great aunt and then Goodwill. The key unfortunately to Goodwill treasures is going often so you can beat the professional buyers and resellers…

  3. Oh Ellen—how beautiful! What some wonderful tea cups–creamer-sugar sets! (I love a good thrift store too!!! We have a favorite that we visit every time we go to my husband’s brother’s house 🙂 )
    When ever I see that pretty pink depression glass, I always think of my grandmother—I have one of her depression glass bowls—that she always served pear salad in for special occasions. It is still pretty—and I am oh so careful—but I have to use it—I love to use the treasures in my house—sweet reminders of my blessings!

  4. So very pretty! Your pink depression glass is beautiful! I have a set that was my mother’s. I like to pair it with my Old Country Roses china because the colors go so nicely together. And I think your sugar and creamer display is lovely! I have a thing about little pitchers — I love them and cannot pass them up when I find them at Goodwill. I’ve found some lovely little ones for 50 cents or a dollar. I haven’t has as much fortune finding sugar bowls, but when I do I find they make great holders for bars of soap in the bathroom!

    🙂 Thanks for sharing!

    You have a wonderful collection of things. I especially love the Royal Albert Moss accessories. Those pink flowers look so dainty. What a unique creamer and sugar. The especially love the handle on the creamer.

  7. Now that’s a great idea to collect sugar and creamers! All of your tea things are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing them with us!

    I just love that Moss Rose pattern!

  8. One more glimpse at your beautiful tea things! I have a dish similar to your hobnail cream/sugar set that was my grandmother’s. It’s always fun to see familiar items!!
