someone is always having tea
 in a
polka dotted mug
at our home

I took this image  for my sweet friend Francis at **by surprise** 
who loves polka dots as much as I do

does anyone remember the children's T.V. show The Polka Dot Door
with the Polkaroo ?
It is Canadian produced and very silly with a theme song that gets stuck in your head and never wants to leave.
click here for a peek at the Polkaroo and the shows theme song

 that show may very well be where I developed  my
love for dots


remember to enter my giveaway here

 happy day to you my friends

Precious friend, YOU KNOW how crazy my days are, and I seem to have missed your prior post!!!! I AM SORRY!!!

Oh, isn't Francis just a sweet friend? And you and she both make polka dots so DESIRABLE! I love to wear them, but I don't have any in my home! I wonder how I could incorporate them, because I do like them!

Is the countdown on for you????? I have open house tonight and so today I have teacher planning meetings. SO MUCH TO DO I AM FRIGHTENED!!!!

I used to get a new dotted swiss dress every Easter. LOVED them! Not exactly polka dots, but that made me think of those dresses. Polka dots are such a classic!

in My Book
stripes in all colors combinations
are the Thing
but throwing in a dotted treasure or 2
makes all things POP!

bought my WWCook
the day it hit the street
and my heart did tug
for your spud hugs!


the 2nd time
i made them
with a Sweet Potato
and substituted some brown sugar
for the white...

oh yummy day!

{{don't U just adore WWC,
both of them! }}

I will never stop loving dots, red and white preferably, but any dots are fine:>) Have a good Labor day weekend!

Unknown said...

I haven't heard of that show but you make me worried to click on the link ... I have too much work to catch up with on my desk to have the theme song stuck in my head! ;)

I do remember the song about the teeny weeny polka dot bikini though! Polka dots are just a ton of fun, aren't they! Sooo adorable - and I am adoring the image of your mugs!

Oh Koralee my dearest, HOW DID THE PANCAKE FLIPPING GO???????? I came home late tonight due to open house! IT WAS SO FABULOUS and electrifying to see my new students. I love them at this stage because they are still quite small. But you know how they grow so fast. I saw my students from last year and two years past; they came to greet me and it was so special. Yes dearest, my body was fighting coming back at first, but I am doing my exercises that the doc gave me and you know, I FEEL 100% AGAIN!!! BUT I cannot be fooled like last time!!!

OK, now do you go in on Monday? That is OUR LABOR DAY HOLIDAY so I actually start teaching on Tuesday!!! OK, here we GO!

Thinking of you, Anita

Privet and Holly said...

So sweet to think
of a young Koralee,
with dots dancing
before her eyes. I
think your house must
be a VERY happy SPOT
to be : ) !!
