I treasure the tea set my grandmother made for me as a little girl, so when Mary Ashley was an infant I knew I wanted to give her a tea set for her first birthday. I treasure the professional photographs I have of her at 12 months playing with the Mud Pie princess toile tea set I chose for her first birthday. So many of our special moments in the years since have happened at the tea table, so I love this photo I took of Mary Ashley enjoying her tea set at age 5.
Monday I'll share a few more of my favorite gifts for girls. But for now, I have a pot of invisible tea to brew for a little mother-daughter make-believe magic.
