Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Little Polka Dot...! That's exactly what I found on Sandra Evertson's blog last month, and her photographs took me right back to being a kid myself, when I spent hours porcelain painting. I told Sandra about it, and before I knew it she had mailed me two of the little chubbies!

It was so special to see some of my "pocket friends" again. Holding them I am transported back to the days of my after-school doll making classes when I was eight years old. Digging around at my mom's house, I was able to find a tiny tea set from that era. Bradshaw Hedgehog was kind enough to help me set up a little display of them all so you could take a peek for yourself.

Oh my gosh!!

The little kids are soooo cute!! And I can remember painting little ceramic figures with my mum. She would work on her big pieces and I would work on the little ones. Then she would glase them and fire them waa laa I had created just like my mum!! Oh and the tiny tea set is so amazingly wonderful. I have never seen one with the little faces painted on them. Not in a miniture set anyway!! I think it's instant love. I now am on a mission to find a simalar set:) I'll have to see if I can get my kids and friends to look up in the Northern Lands. I have a snowball's chance in Mexico to find anything like it here:(

Take care and have a wonderful rest of the week!!
