It has been a fun family hobby. We were always on "The Hunt". We always had something to look for when we wanted to give Mom a gift. Her collection eventually grew to over 250 creamers. It got to the point, that Mom sometimes even ended up with duplicates. She had so many that we forgot what she already had.

Blogathon topic #3 is to discuss Decorating With Tea Items. So, this is the week that I get to talk about my mother's cow creamer collection! She has collected them since I was a kid. Mom bought her first ones at a gift shop on Pelee Island in Canada in the 60's where we had a summer cottage. Since then, I have grown up constantly searching for cow creamers; gift shops, antique stores, garage sales, etc.
I don't have a final count or pictures of the collection. Mom entered into a giving away stage and divided it among the family members. I live in a different state so was not present when she did and no final photos were taken of it. I do know that she had 8 cases of them and each case held about 30 cows. She had them in her china cabinet too.
