Sharing a common thread with those who love the art of hand embroidery

today's design.............a darling little creamer. Again, another great thing to collect, there are so many different types! Again, the same jade green embroidery, the same rose.........

I have a few other creamers, not any like the one I embroidered. However, this one, I found one day, while visiting an antique shop. It was lying outside on a dirt covered shelf, with quite a lot of Texas dirt stuck on the inside.  Somehow, no one noticed it's beauty, and tossed it aside. I came to it's rescue.........I love pink!

And now, it shines from my shelf.
How about you?
Do you collect creamers?
I would love to hear!
I hope you can come visit tomorrow, although it is a work day for many, and see what Monday's design will be!

I do collect creamers! I have a love for little restaurant creamers made by the Hall China company. They come in many different shapes and colors, but the one thing that they all are is sturdy. My teenage daughters still enjoy having their own wee pitcher of milk for their cereal. We like to use creamers for individual servings of gravy, too.

Fortunately they are still fairly easy to find in antique shops, and the prices aren't too bad either. I must have nearly 40 by now, and no two the same.

I do have a few creamers collected with my HLC, one Hull creamer, and a solid white one. Wish I had a real Fireking creamer! This was such a good idea you had, embroidering with the green.

Saturday and Sunday's designs are so very pretty and your matching creamer and salt and pepper shakers are lovely too. Will be back tomorrow to see what Monday's design will be. Best wishes, Tammy

Your towels are all lovely! And this pink creamer is pretty! When my kids were little I used to let them join in my tea parties with "cambric tea". Warm milk, a spoonful of sugar and a tiny splash of tea. I let them used sturdy little cream pitchers like this for pouring.
