I am loving polka dots!

Lately I have found myself being drawn to things with polka dots on them the way I am to toiles and checks. Polka dots are so cute and whimsical and easy to paint! I had this green metal pot and saw it in my closet last night and thought it might look good sporting some dots. Carrie at Buzzings of a Queen Bee did one so I got the idea from her. I grabbed the pot, painted on it, filled it with some greenery and berries, and put it on my kitchen desk. I like how it turned out! Some of the other things below I have already shown like my polka dot tree topper and T canvas I made. The S is a Christmas present for my Mom. The last pic shows some polka dot scrapbook paper I got at Hobby Lobby that I'll use scrapbooking and also for projects. I am wanting to add some polka dots to every room! I'm going to have to come up with some polka dot accessories to make!
