According toTracy Moore and all her friends on home day on CityLine I can mix patterns and that It Is Alright. So I did. This is my kitchen table. Here is the cool stuff. The table cloths is two metres of outdoor type fabric I got at Fabricland ($4.00) The place mats are from "Loblaws" and are a couple of year old are actually all the same, I just flipped two of them over. and the lantern is a green version of the white ones we are using as part of the centre pieces for my son and future d-i-l's wedding. All of these colours compliment my new kitchen paint with is an orangie/creamy yellow. In others words ....... perfect.
