Monday's Treasures Pass The Sugar

From this week's Monday's Treasures, I decided to show you the collection of
cream and sugar sets from my father-in-laws never ending attic of surprises. 
I love this cobalt blue glass. It is from the 1940's when they first got married.

This sweet set each has a single rose and is rather petite. 
 I found out by researching, that this is a colored milk glass.
It is the prettiest shade of coral.
 This very unusual sugar bowl was made in Japan shortly after WWII.
This creamer is actually gold plated. Also popular after the war.
This is a souvenier set from Canada, my husband said belonged to his grandparents.

This is a very unique little set. It has a shaker for sugar or cinnamon,
a cup for cream and a sugar bowl minus the lid.
This cute little milk glass sugar bowl has lost it creamer.
I bet it is still hiding in the attic.
Too bad I like my coffee black, I never knew it could be so much fun to
collect something to put the cream and sugar in.
