A bright, cheerful, stylized-tulip pattern brings country freshness to kitchen accessories that include canisters, above, and the pitcher and salt-and-pepper shakers, left. All are made of crack-resistant white ceramic with blue, red and yellow accents. These are just a few items from a complete collection of dinnerware and table-top and kitchen accessories designed to provide a mix-and-match theme. When summer entertaining calls for advance preparation of large quantities of food, you'll welcome the capacities of the oversize porcelain-on-steel bowls with seal-tight plastic lids, above. The porcelain-on-steel saucepan with wooden handle is from a seven-piece set that includes a Dutch oven, frying pan and another saucepan. The bowls and cookware come in blue, yellow or red. Crafted in a contemporary style, the solid-oak bread box keeps bread fresh longer. The cotton potholder with tulip pattern has matching towels, apron, toaster cover, oven mitt and dishcloths. The oak and glass canister set (which comes with a revolving stand), secretary with bulletin board and napkin holder, left, are compatible coordinates. All accessories shown are available at J. C. Penney.
