Vintage Polks Dots: Retro Lovers Living In A Dotted World

 The Art Of Polka Dots

Carole King Juniors, 1957I am so delighted with my Pinterest.com board called "Retro Polka Dots" that I wanted to share with you some of the fab photos and images that I have pinned to the board. When I first started the board, I thought I would limit my polka dots to kitchen collectibles with "dots". But the board grew and grew to include dotted fashion, accessories, textiles, toys, cards, furniture and more.

Paperdoll girlMy Retro Polks Dot board also expanded to show dots of all sizes and graphic styles which exploited polka dots in so many ways. I am particularly excited about the color combinations and compositions of many of the images collected.

Beyond Kitchen Collectibles With Polka Dots

While the original intent of  my  Retro Polka Dot Pinterest.com board was to follow the dots over the decades, I have also found the pinning of these images to help me think about the art of the polka dot.
Hope you enjoy a peak of my polka dots.  To see the entire gallery, please visit http://pinterest.com/kitschnstuff/retro-polka-dots/
