and then there’s polka dots

Stripes are in, but they are followed closely by dots.  There’s something about polka dots that makes me smile, and like stripes, they can be used in a number of contexts.

They are for the table,

 the floor,

 the bedroom. 

 You can wear them though they remind me a bit of Minnie Mouse.

If you don’t like them on your body, how about on your feet?Maybe you’d rather have stationery

and what kid wouldn’t like having them on a backpack or lunch sack?

As for me, I think I will stick to polka dots on a purse 

or maybe on a decorative accessory.

Tell me, just how would you use polka dots?

i love your thoughts, so jump right in and share yours

  1. Love all the polka dots, but especially the shoes…do you recall the name of the designer or brand?

    1. The shoes were at Saks. I don’t remember the details, but all the shoes there were pricey!

  2. I like polka dots and stripes used together! Glad to see both patterns going so strong this year!!!

    1. I’m with you. I love mixing patterns.

  3. Someone once said the appeal of polka dots on a garment was that one would have the desire to touch everyone of them. Dixie
