painted tea set giveaway

giveaway!
When I was little, I had a Fisher Price tea set. It was blue and yellow, and looked like this. I loved it. We have all kinds of tea sets around our house these days, but everyone has their favorite. Some are real, some are just for fun. But my point is, a tea set is something that every girl should have. And maybe not just girls, because my brother has one that he loves too...

When it comes to play sets, there's something really charming about a tin tea set. There are vintage sets, and new sets, and my mom recently found this one:
Paint a Tea Set!
She brought it home, and I got all excited, because I was thinking of you and this tea party! So I made her go and get a second set to share. (Thanks, Mom!)

Painting this was a little different than I expected, as the paint is rather thin. But I used what they provided, because there's a whole process. It was so much fun to make!
Wild Olive Tea Set
Wild Olive Tea Set
Tea cups with faces! It's the Wild Olive way!

So here's the deal. One lucky reader is going to win a tin tea set! The winner will get to choose between a plain set, ready to be painted...or...the painted set that I've decorated. (You won't hurt my feelings if you choose the blank one!)

To enter, leave a comment telling me if you take anything in your tea (no milk or sugar for me!), and a way for me to contact you.

BONUS ENTRY: Leave a second comment if you follow me on BlogLovin'!

The giveaway will remain open until Saturday, May 28 at Noon CST, when I'll choose a random winner.

If you don't win, you can buy the paintable set on Amazon. It's really so sweet!

Comments are now closed...thank you so much for the amazing response!

    What I take depends on the flavor. Honey is great in Blood Orange tea, while Almond Rooibos easily becomes dessert with some cream and sugar.

    P.S. I love the painted set.

  3. Very cute, I do love the "Wild Olive way" of faces. A little bit of milk and sugar in my black teas, but only honey or agave in anything herbal.

    ReplyDelete
  4. I'd love to win the tea set for my nieces ages 1 and 3.

    What I drink in my tea depends on the tea, and how I'm feeling. I'm normally a milk and sugar person; however, if I'm feeling like a cold is coming on, I'll do lemon and honey. And, of course, if it's a 'flavored' tea, I tend to drink it 'black/plain'.

  5. I take my tea with honey. Sometimes sugar, and occasionally milk.
    That tea set is adorable!

    Depends on the tea! If it's black, take it with milk and sugar. If it's green, herbal or red, I take it with nothing in it!

  27. Im a picky tea drinker - 2 sugers in my english breakfast with milk, one of RAW sugar only in my peppermint and my chai must have a squeeze of honey - nothing worse when im craving some chai and they have no honey left makes me want to cry.

    The tea set is the sweetest thing out, thanks for the chance to win, ive been looking at tea sets more since i have found out Im going to have my first daughter after 3 sons. Three Sons only want to put worms in tea sets....... at least mine do.

  40. Tea with a splash of milk no sugar. That is of course if I'm having chai tea, otherwise I have it plain. Mmmmmm...now I must dash away and have me some scones and Earl Grey!

    As for the tea set, the beautifully painted one of course!

  50. I use to drink my tea with just sugar or honey. Then I went to Australia for a wonderful vacation and they asked me if I wanted my tea white or black. I said white and I have never turned back. So cream and sugar all the way for me.

  58. I'm not really a tea person. (or coffee for that matter.) I do drink chai, but I'm not terribly picky about it. When I make it at home, I use skim milk, but when I go to the coffee shop and they have fancy flavors (raspberry Yumm!) they use water and it tastes just fine.

  63. We have been looking for a new tea set for my little girl, that one is so cute I may have to try and find it.
    I like my tea straight or with a little lemon depending on the type. Although I am thinking I will buy some sugar cubes for some of our play tea parties, I used to love them as a kid.

    ReplyDelete
  64. AH! I would love to win your set! Its so adorable :) I take my tea with honey thank you. When I was a kid, the only time I drank tea was when I was sick and my best friend would make it for me, with honey. So it stuck. How fun!
