Now that Maebh has her new kitchen, she has been playing with it a lot. Today she used beads in a bowl pretending it was flour. It’s cute but will be so much better once I paint it like I posted before, but I promised Nils I’d only do it in the Spring when it’s dry and I can do it outside. Plus, I think it would be best to do when she’s at school.
She’s already started to gather quite some stuff for it like the Melissa & Doug Wooden Pizza & Wooden Cake sets, toaster, pans, etc.
On the top of her list is a tea set. She had one in the US, but I want to get her a wooden or porcelin one. There is a cute one at the Hema if my BIL can bring it to me.
Otherwise, I’ll get her one here. I’ve seen many cute ones and some of the tin ones are sweet too. This is my favorite from John Lewis, I just wonder if it is tiny. Might have to get it if I’m in Norwich again soon.
Today I made her a few play tea bags which she found to be very fun. It was some of my left over scrap fabrics until I get some new fabric, which I hope to do this weekend. I’d like to do an apron and pot holder too.
After much research and finding this wooden one online for 14.99 – more than 1/2 off what they sell it for on Amazon.co.uk, so I bought it. Should be here in 4 days – she’s going to love it!
I just picked up these really cute tea tins – all three for .50 p! So cute!
And this afternoon, I picked up some cute cherry fabric so I made these cute tea bags. I put a sponge in to give it weight – think they are very cute.
And these cake stand ones.
I made Maebh’s an apron from the fabric I got at the Pied Piper. It was a little skirt one, until she said she really wanted it to have a top with a pocket, so I added that on. The fabric isn’t exactly matchy, matchy, but it’s cute and she likes it.
And the wooden tea set with the tea bags – super cute!
