Today I went to Anthropologie to have fun with my gift card from Janet.
It was only my second time at an "Anthro." There are none in RI so thanks to some terrible online directions, almost getting lost but then finding my way, I arrived safely with gift card and camera in hand.

Could this store be any cooler?
I chose some unique things like these pretty earrings, to add some sparkle to my usual ensembles from Target. I bought just 1 glass knob for my dining room table (since you can't see the other side!). I can't thank Janet enough for enabling this pre-spring splurge!

Now here is the part where I could use a little advice from some of the most creative minds I know.
The idea to wrap my dining table with oil cloth has been rekindled by bloggers Jen and Serena.
The question is, what pattern?
I have been bringing many colors into the kitchen/dining room and want to make sure it's all cohesive. There are pale green walls, smoke blue chairs, the framed red and green wallpaper, stacks of dishes in pink, yellow, green and blue.
Oilcloth seems wise because this is where we eat all of our meals and the boys do their homework; it would protect the table and be easy to wipe clean. There are many adorable oilcloth choices at the Etsy shop, Oilcloth Addict. Some ideas:
Any preference or links to other oilcloths?
Of course Cath Kidston has oilcloth and it's positively dreamy but a little pricey.
Thanks so much for listening to this coffee-fueled, ramble of a post!
