Piper got this tea set for her birthday (March 18) from my mom. It is one that you paint yourself. We kind of forgot about it until we were cleaning her room and found it again under her dresser (she put it there so it wouldn't get lost). She decided that she wanted to call Aunt Val, who is an incredible artist, to help her paint it. Finally after a couple of weeks, we got the scheduling worked out. She went up to Val's house on Tuesday afternoon and stayed for about an hour and painted her tea set.
She was so excited when she got home, she sat and showed which cup went with which saucer and ask me bake it right away. So I did.
Now she has an adorable little tea set that she painted with the help of Aunt Val, that she is SO proud of. I hope she uses it often.
