Fun With Polkadots

Lately, I’ve been seeing spots…
drawn to pretty playful polkadots!

But since I probably can’t afford Damien Hirst

or convince Jenna Lyon’s husband to paint me this…

     I’m seriously considering these wall decals.

They’re cheap, noncommittal and just the thought of Mr. Zhush pulling into a polka dot garage one evening… priceless!

  10. Polka dots are great! I myself am having a fling with paint splatter and since some got on the garage floor, I considered doing it all.

  17. Being honest, I've personally never liked poka dots, but looking at these it seems they would perk up a space.

  26. I have a friend who makes this really fabulous dot art. He's so meticulous and they are all pretty colors. Wish I had a link to share with you. We were supposed to get a piece made for our home… but he got all arty and flaked on us 🙁

    I bet these dots would be fun in a basement too!

    I had to google Jenna Lyons. I thought she was the winner of Design Star. I am getting Alzheimers. She is the one responsible for the J. Crew store in our town not carrying men's pants in 36 or above. They also don't carry 14's for women. I don't know any men with a thirty four waist.
    I like your idea. I went to the Christmas Tree shop and bought a rudolph costume for my car. A red nose and two antlers to stick out the windows. I thought I would put it on my husband's car. He gets up so early when it is dark, he probably wouldn't notice it until he parked at the train station. Do it. They have to be reminded why they married us once in a while. Ann

  42. funny thing is – I've never gone for dots before but I recently bought a dressing gown with spots. NEver has a piece of clothing caused me such grief.

    Every time I think that one of the sleeves has been dipped in something, only to find its a spot that's meant to be there !

    Never again………

  45. Multi coloured polka dots make me smile in the same way that pom-poms do. I love them!

    A Damien Hurst would be fantastic, but seriously, how can he go from pickled cow to polka dots.. I worry.. 🙂

    Have a gorgeous weekend shop girl!
