Classing Up The Joint

Terry had place mats when he was a kid. This is something I found out about him just recently. I was a no place mat kind of kid. When Terry requested that I make some place mats like the ones I made for Josh and Mel, I seriously had never even thought about making some for us.

We're classing up the Team LT house!


About as much as Team LT can stand anyway.

You know us, we don't really have a classy sort of style. As a matter of fact, I took this style quiz to find out what kind of style I actually have in decorating. I got "Unmade Bed." Haha of course! I'm in good company though - other suspected "Unmade Bed" stylists include Tina Fey, Bob Dylan and Woody Allen. Yay!

"A quite you can hear in the snow covered hills. To cook a grand meal in an elegant kitchen is your joy. Build a roaring fire and jump into your cozy bed. Musical lyrics bring to mind life's extraordinary events. Your relaxed table atmosphere is enjoyed by everyone. "Beer is proof that God loves us" Pre-war, upper east side attitude. Casual and relaxed… never insisting on formality." - is what the site uses to describe me :)

Anyway, back to the place mats.

The first two have Sponge Bob on one side and zig zags on the other, with monkeys throwing snowballs as trim.

See? Classy!

The next two were designed by Logan. Spiderman on one side, happy faces on the other and guitars as trim. These are both Logan's and Terry favourite. There is just too much awesome thrown into these place mats. Behold their mighty power!

The next two are made from my IKEA winnings. Much more adult and subdued. They are my favourite. I love the snowy log cabins.

And the last two I call the "Mother in Law" set because they have loons on one side, and what look like peppers (but I think they are actually leaves) on the other side and trim in brown plaid. We'll pull these ones out when grandma visits. She'll be suitably impressed :)

What do you think? Too crazy to fit into our home decor? Or just right for Team LT? What kind of style do you have? Did you take the quiz?

I most resemble a "Handcrafted Obsession". Who would have thought?
I really like your Ikea placemats!
