Memories of Polka Dots

There was a black and white polka dot shower curtain in a bathroom
with pale golden tiles. Those big cheery dots greeted me first thing
every morning .. . .. and brought an instant smile to my heart.
It's a week later, I'm back at home - and I'm still thinking POLKA DOTS .
One of my all time favorite photos is this classic Cecil Beaton of style icon
Nancy Cunard. Those bracelets ! Those eyes! The remarkable contradiction
between her attitude and the whimsy of all those Polka Dots!

Merci Beaucoup to my dear hostess ( and very special daughter) for
being a constant inspiration ... . . .
and putting up that glorious new shower curtain .

I have always loved that photo! I posted it several months ago, too - though I didn't do such faaaaabulous alterations to it!

I am a big polka dot fan. Can you imagine wearing all those bracelets to blog? :) The noise would be deafening.

Polka dots and bracelets, what a lovely world you concoct, Judy.

I also love this photo. Nancy Cunard is one of my favs. Love what you have done with the original!

Well, I must say that having been a flamenco dancer I have a thing about polka dots...a good thing. (And a closet full of polka dot costumes.) Wonder where those bracelets are now?
I bet your evenings are nice and cool there now. Hope all is well.
