Dottie About Dots

Not long ago I saw the movie Because I Said So. I was delighted that polka dots were part of the costuming. I almost always have a black and white polka dot dress in my closet. I only wish I looked like Diane Keaton in mine! The fashion police have been after me for a long time and I have taken a lot of flack about my dots but as you can see from my wallpaper-- I just love them. Polka dots always make me smile. I have been so happy to see them breaking out all over, even in Horchow's catalogue. This is not just some passing fancy with me, when I was ten or so, my parents made the mistake of telling me I could pick out the material for the curtains for my bedroom. Easy enough I picked a lovely bright pink background with dinner plate sized white dots on it! They were so beautiful to me! Sadly, not long after they were up they just disappeared! I asked and asked about them but they never again materialized (shame on you Mom and Dad!) You can imagine how thrilled I was to find the fabric above on Ebay. Now some may find this obsessive but I just couldn't help myself.

This is kind of funny...I just bought a new "black with white polka dots" purse (or suitcase, as certain family members have called it) the other day. I LOVE it. I think I look extremely fashionable carrying it around. lol

I'd love to send you a Christmas card if you're able to send me your address!

Merry Christmas -
Kari

Great blog-nice to find you! I am totally loving polka dots! As a kid my mom dressed me in lots of dots - comfort fabric for me :-)!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, I entered you in the drawing!

I love your Christmas tree and I think you and I have the same-patterned red rug!
Thanks for visiting my blog. Glad you liked the crab and bubbly.
