Everybody,Everywear: Dancing the Polka...DOTS!


And a one...and a two....let's polka every bawdy.....that was my Saturday nights growing up.  At 6:00 every Saturday, my parents sat down to watch the Lawrence Welk Hour and it seemed every week there was a polka segment with an accordian. You didn't make noise in the house during Welk, so eventually my brothers and I gave up and watched with them.  This memory makes me feel really old...

POLKA DOTS, on the other hand, make me feel young!  I suppose this is because I have worn polka dots from baby on up!  I always feel youthful and joyful in something with a polka dot pattern. So join us in the joy and catch all of the spotted fever @ Everybody,Everywear.

  13. I watched Lawrence Welk too. Stopped back by to say I edited my post to add today's outfit with a dotted necklace. ;-)

  14. Polka dots DO MAKE YOU FEEL YOUNG! ek lawrence welk....

  15. I agree! There is something perpetually optimistic and youthful about polka dots, and you are a fellow polka dotted fan! Looking good Pam. (I remember family TV with the LW Show and Carol Burnett. I didn't care for Lawrence, but loved Carol!)
