50's Fire King Dots!

Forget your troubles- come on get DOTTY! It's Dotty Hop Day! Isn't this the cutest little thang eva?

This DOTTY "grease pot" has been taunting me at the antique store since last December! I finally gave in and bought it with my birthday money! I'm trying to find a home for it on my happy shelves. I'll show you when I get everything juuuuust right. ♥

Last week's give away winner of the dotty papers is Angelina of Ruby Jeans! Congratulations Angelina! Did you all see the apron Angelina posted last week for Dotty Hop Day? Eeek! Click HERE to check it out!

What have you all been doing that's fun? My guys rearranged my craft room/ bedroom for me so that means I've been busy cleaning and organizing it. (Which means the rest of the house is a disaster! Ugh!) I HOPE this will be my final arrangement for this room. I am so NOT good at furniture placement.♥

I've also been busily making custom colored button/ball garlands! I love it because it's like designing a quilt but I don't have to do any sewing! Once Sandy gets hers in the mail I'll show it to you and I'll show you the one I'm making for Renee when she gets hers, too. I'm still working on my own fall colored one too and I can't wait to show you that one. Hopefully you're not getting tired of button ball garlands and dots!

♥Thanks to everyone who links up with DOTTY HOP DAY! Remember, the purpose of posting is to show your DOTS. You can link up today or any day this week. ☺

Oops! I forgot to add my Dotty Hop Day/kitty button to this post! Poor kitty! You can copy it from past posts if you'd like.

*I'm* linking up to REDNESDAY! Go see all the reds every Wednesday.

I hope to have another little give away for you next week! Aren't give aways so fun?

You are organizing Holly, I am so happy for you! I LOVE your polka dotted Fire King! I swoon ever time I see one of these. Can't wait to see it in it's new SPOT! Also am beyond happy Renee and Sandy will soon have their own cute as can be garlands. I simply love mine. Such a clever idea! Thanks for this fun day! Elizabeth

You've waited since December? I'm surprised someone else didn't snap that cute little number up a long time ago. Lucky you!


Don’t let that scarlet go to your head!
Be very glad you haven’t been bled!
Give thanks for the colors dear to your heart:
Carmine and cherry and wine— a good start!
