spacer Sugar and Creamer Ceramic Set
Whitney Smith Pottery has some absolutely beautiful designs. We love all of the bird additions, the gorgeous nesting lotus bowls and this Sugar and Creamer Ceramic Set. From the listing:

The Dogwood Ceramic Sugar and Creamer Set have a sweet vintage style with the dogwood blossoms on the sugar bowl and organic lines of the creamer. The bud creamer looks small and delicate, but you could hold a tea party for 10 with this jug and never have to refill it. The Dogwood Ceramic Sugar and Creamer Set makes a wonderful gift for people who like a little milk and sugar and add a lovely touch to any table.
