It's tea time!

This past weekend we went down to New Mexico to see my brother and sister-in-law and their new baby. I painted this table and chair set and a little rocker for her to use when she is a little bit older. She is only 3 months now, so it is a little too soon for her to use right now, but it will be ready for much drawing and tea parties when she is ready!.

Here is the top of the table. Sorry for the glare on the glossy finish! It says Live, Laugh, Love, Dream, Hope, Imagine, and Create. The theme for their wedding was "Live, Laugh, Love".



Alternating sides of the table are blue with dots and green with flowers.

Each of the chairs has two colors that coordinate with the table. This is the top of the green chair. The edge of the chair's back is blue with white dots. It has hand painted flowers and vines on the green seat. I did not get a good picture of the other chair, but it has a pink seat similar to the one above and a green rimmed back with white dots.

This is the table and two chairs together ready for the tea party or for making many neat items in the future!

To go with the table and chairs, I also painted a rocking chair.

Here is a detail shot of the seat with her name and more flowers. The rungs are pink with white dots.


The back of the chair rungs are also pink with white dots and vines and flowers-which are hard to see in the photo so you will have to trust me.

I also took down the Nickel Dog Quilt I made for her a couple of months ago with some coordinating pillows!

What a beautiful, thoughtful gift. I would have been so touched if someone gave us this for our twin girls rather than a generic gift from Target. Great job!

My mom called me to tell me about this tableand chairs...

She didn't just hint she made sure I knew that she wanted something like this for the lake.
