Polka Dots Add Pizazz


Is it just me, or do polka dots just make you feel happy? I have always loved polka dots so the fact that they are so trendy right now and showing up in just about everything, is really something to smile about!

I am definitely making these ASAP! So simple to make and it looks delicious and fun too.

      Thanks Heather. Me too, I don’t know what it is about it, I seriously would have a wardrobe made up entirely of polka dots if it didn’t make me look like Minnie Mouse :)

    You know what else can always put a smile on my face…. POLKA music! haha! You have to admit… it’s hard to be sad when you’re looking at polka dots or listening to polka music. :)

    Cute ideas!

    Oh I love polka dots and they make me feel happy too! So cute! I need to do a girls night out (at my house) with a polka dot theme. My girlfriends will love it! (I have 2 boys 18 & 23. My youngest would not appreciate polka dots at his grad party!) BTW, if you have any fun grad party ideas for a boy I certainly would appreciate the info! Thanks for all the great ideas that you share!!

    Your site is so whimsical and fun! You may know where I could go to find a Twin or Full Flat Sheet Only In Red with White Polka Dots.I have found that Flat Sheets make excellent Curtains for one who doesn’t sew.I wish I could sew but I didn’t have the time in my teens when my mother was here & wanted to teach me.What a mistake that was! If you do know where I could make my purchase,I would love to know . I have scoured stores on-line who have only sheet sets. Thank you & it has been a pleasure to peruse your sit,Jamielyn.

      Thanks Gabrielle! I would look online at Target or on Etsy! I’ve seen some cute ones there. :)
