This is my third week at showing some creamers and favorite kitchen pieces that I have collected over the years. I hope you have not been too bored with my post. I will move on to some newer and different things next week. This is my third post that has been similar in nature and I am afraid if I don't mix it up a bit, you might not visit next Thursday!
I am sure by now, you have figured out I collect a variety of things, love a variety of vintage things and am really not afraid to start with something new....that being said, let me ask you a question. Do you think I have a problem? Is it a sickness? Is there a cure?
This is a really cute restaurant vintage syrup or creamer dispenser. The glass is very heavy on this little jewel and is loaded with bubbles throughout the glass. Now, granted I usually am attracted to things with a little more coloring in them, but the glass is very nice and I really thought it was cute. Estate sale find...$2.00.
This little creamer is one of my most PRIZED possessions. And seriously, if there was a disaster and I had to escape my home, this would be grabbed up on the way out the door. This little creamer holds so many memories for me growing up as a child and of the special person it belonged to. This was in my beloved grandmothers cabinet on the right side of her stove for as long as I remember. It sat on the first shelf on the left had side of the cabinet...she stored her toothpicks in this. Oh, the memories associated in this one little creamer.
My grandmother was a wonderful cook and cooked homemade authentic Mexican food from recipes passed down from my grandpa's family. We always had soft tacos, and they were held together by toothpicks...toothpicks that came from this little creamer.
I don't know where my grandma got this, I seem to recall asking her about it once and I seem to want to think she told me it was my grandpas. I can not be sure however. Man, I wish I had asked more questions when I had these special people still in my life. I miss my grandmother so much some days the pain is so fresh it was like I lost her yesterday and not half my lifetime ago. She was special and anything I have that belonged to her is of the utmost importance in my life.
This is another creamer I found at a thrift store for 50 cents. It is solid white with a silver rim, no markings. I just liked the simplicity of it. The bowl is a really favorite of mine. It is a restaurant ware piece by Homer Laughlin. I love the colors and the weight to this bowl.
Here is a little closeup of the detail on the bowl and the creamer.
Here is another creamer I recently purchased at an estate sale. Notice the red and white! I had a bowl which looked similar already at home and when I saw this creamer, it sorta found its way into my basket. The bowl is marked with just a BAKE OVEN mark on the bottom. The creamer is of a different marking.
And would you look at the inside of this little creamer! I thought this was so cute. Oh, and should I mention the fact that I really do not collect creamers....I really don't. I just have found a few that called my name and they now live happily at my house. It really is not a collection....per say.
Here is the marking on the bottom of the creamer. I tried to search for the mark and try to find something with the same marking, but I did not have much luck. Does this mark look familiar to anyone?
I did come across a site with lots of vintage restaurant ware, and oh, my...I think I am in serious trouble.....that search has spawned a new serious liking for restaurant ware, and I am seriously considering trading out my dinnerware I have now for some vintage restaurant ware.....Help me! Did you say it was a sickness....or no?
