Polka-Dotted Accessories by Martha

What is it about polka-dots that makes people smile? They are intrinsically fun and bouncy, perhaps conjuring latent childhood memories of marbles, bubbles, rubber balls and happy faces. The more colourful they are, too, the more they inspire uplifting moods. As grown-ups we have an opportunity to bring polka-dots into our homes, via textile patterns and decorating motifs, as long as we exercise some restraint and use the bubbly pattern as a punchy accent. Below are some examples of polka-dotted wares from the Martha Stewart Collection, now available at Macy's. Any favourites? I have my eye on the dishtowels...

I actually wish this kids kitchen kit came in an adult size! ($19.99)
I love these tea towels! ($9.99 for a set of three.)

Cookie and cupcake boxes are ideal for spring birthday parties. ($9.99 for a package of six boxes.)Having polka-dots at the beach (or by the bath!) is a surefire way to invite sunshine into your day. (On sale at $14.99)
