Oh...I love the bunny! The wonderful thing about blogging is it brings your attention to things you might not have noticed before. I might have passed by a little white animal creamer, but now...I will think of you if I see any. Such a sweet little collection.

Bee and Rose said...

So cute! I'm loving pink depression glass these days:)

Magpie's Mumblings said...

How sweet! I don't think I realized they made these in anything other than cows. I don't really collect anything in particular, but it seems I have been 'acquiring' sewing machines lately. I've often thought I would like to collect the lovely little miniature ones, but never meant that to translate into full size ones!
Speaking of collections - a number of years ago I fell in love with a little teddy bear and bought her. Once my friends noticed I had her, I was inundated with them!! I didn't WANT any more than one. I've slowly managed to find new homes for them and have cried uncle to any more.

That´s cute - both the animals and what Carmelina did! :-)

I don´t collect anything specificly; just lovely, little things that I happen to fall over when I least of all expect it. :-) There´s no read line in it, but makes me happy! :-)

Hi Koralee!
Don't you just love little creamers?!?
I have a tiny white "tea for two" kitten creamer... love to put that on a tray when Chris and I have tea ~
Your new additions are adorable!
I love Carmelina's crochet teacups! They are fabulous!
~ ~ ~
What a great weekend your daughters and husband have to enjoy!
You will love the "all you" weekend too!
I had one of these earlier in the summer when Jason and Chris went hiking in the Adirondacks... I baked and watched my fav' movies ... did some scrapbooking that took up the whole dining room table ... "all Maria" time was wonderful!

Enjoy your "all Koralee" time and may this weekend add more joy to the years of memories for your family!
~ heartfelt thanks for your sweet comments, Koralee!

Privet and Holly said...

Hi Koralee : )
What a cute and different
collection....so YOU!
I collect tea cups and little
boxes; my daughter, vintage
dog figurines; my son, frogs;
Mr. Privet, kaleidescopes
for his office! I think
the joy of the hunt brings
as much pleasure as the
items, themselves. Hope you
are out, enjoying this LAST
day of July {can you believe
it? }!!
xx Suzanne

oh my I must say I love your animal creamers!! I have been collecting tea tins and perfume bottles!

Deb said...

Hi Koralee: those are adorable. I love white dishes so they would fit in well here. I am starting to collect child-size dishes for my new grand-daughter, Riley. I plan to keep them in a cabinet so when she visits we can play with dishes. I also collect tea-pots. Have a great day, Hugs, Deb =^..^=x5

I simply LOVE your collection!!! They are all soooo cute!!
Kisses sweet Koralee!

Brooke ~ SummerBrooke Gardens said...

I forgot to tell you what I'm collecting, or maybe the better question is what am I not collecting?! I love the old vintage kitchen gadgets and cookie cutters with the red handles, pink depression ware glass, vintage buttons, beads, lace, ricrac, etc.
So fun to share, have a wonderful weekend!

paperbird said...

Koralee I love your animal creamers- they are so sweet. I just purchased a set of tiny white creamers- I was so happy to find them. I collect too many things but my favorite thing to collect is vintage millinery flowers.

Torie Jayne said...

Oh Koralee, They are gorgeous! Have a sweet day!

Heather {A Measure Of...} said...

These are so beautiful! And I love your question, what would we love to collect? Hmm, for me this is interesting, because I have spent my life moving moving moving and always getting rid of stuff. The only thing I have ever really collected are books (especially poetry books, but all books really).

But lately, I am in such a settling down mode. And I want to collect stuff! Problem is, we're not living anywhere close to where we would settle down. But I have been loving beach glass and bottles lately. In one day of beachcombing recently we found 16 mini bottles! I will definitely bring them back to the U.S. with us! And for some reason, my dad has been collecting rooster items for me. I have no idea why, but I love that he is doing such a random thing like that for me. Makes me feel loved.

Whew, that's my essay for the day :)
Have a spectacular weekend!
xoxo

Andrea - Faded Plains said...

Your animal creamers are adorable...hmmm...I see a new collection in the works over here ;o)

Catherine said...

What a lovely gift! Carmelina is so sweet isn't she? As are you sweet Koralee!

Hope you are having a lovely weekend!
xo Catherine

Blissitydoodah said...

People would probably say I collect teenagers...you can send me any leftover ones you have. I'll feed them and hug them :) Otherwise I'm gonna say chalk dogs.
Your little creamers are so cute! I like to hear about collections that aren't so common :)

Kellie Collis said...

I do love elephants i find them so peaceful! xx

Marilyn said...

I'm always looking at those little creamers at the store, but have resisted them so far. A friend is looking for a donkey one, but I haven't seen any donkey's. I haven't seen the little duck one. They are all so very cute.

Collections, oh no, I am trying to get rid of things, but some days I do weaken on different things. Love depression glass, vintage linens,old jars, and today weakened and bought a bundle of beautiful ecru thread.

katrina said...

those figurines are so sweet -- lucky girl.

not collecting anything at the moment :D

Pamela said...

Hi Koralee!
Love these adorable animals! I have always collected bunnies because my son was born in the year of the rabbit. And i love bunnies!

Happy 1st of August!

Summer is going much too fast.

ELK said...

the white is so clean and simple..what a fun collection...

Martha said...

they are just adorable!!!!

Dyche Designs said...

Those are so cute, you must have been made up to receive them in the mail. As for me, my love is of apes (chimps and gorilla's inparticular). It doesn't look like I collect them until you start wandering around my home and you see little signs of them in random places.

Not Just a Waitress said...

You have such a fast-growing collection!! I have one. A piglet. A gift from my Mom that she found thrifting. :)
I so enjoy your blog, Koralee, and I so appreciate when you take the time to stop by mine. :)
