Wishlist Wednesday: Sugar and creamer sets

I have an inordinate love for sugar and creamer sets.  I love the English tradition of taking cream and sugar with my tea though I hardly get a chance to do so (pesky work).  Ah to be a lady who lunches!  Frivolity aside, there are multiple uses for these little sets (or so I say to justify my growing collection)--you can use the creamers as impromptu vases for flowers and the sugar jars are perfect for cotton balls, buttons, jewelry and other little treasures.  Here are some of my favorite sets gathered from google images:
I have this set from Anthropologie--it's sitting in the guest bathroom and houses qtips and cottonballs!

Another Anthropologie set

A retro turquoise Melmac set

Russell Wright in action

Cobalt and orange sets from Fiestaware

A modern white ceramic set

My absolute favorite Franciscan Starburst (the teapot isn't too shabby either!)

Lovely vintage jadeite set

Some bright and quirky vintage sets

Vintage Marcrest (I found the sugar jar in Tallahassee and am looking for the creamer!)

And just for fun, a little whale set
