Polkadot Fever





Ik weet niet meer wanneer het begon,
het was nog voor Meron begon met Flamenco dansen (en dus de nodige schoentjes en jurk moest aanschaffen).
De bolletjes-rage: overal waar we kwamen en er werd een rood-met-witte-bolletjes-ding gespot, werden de oren van mijn hoofd gezaagd;-(
Nu is ons huis er vol van:
- Polkadot kindertheeserviesje
- polkadot balpennen
- Polkadot pennezak
- oma's zelgemaakte Polkadot rok (voor elke zus eentje)
- Polkadot-jurk
- polkadot sjaal
- polkadot pop
- polkadot haarband
- polkadot kaftpapier
- ....
Alleen kleine broer heeft de polkadot koorts nog niet tepakken.

I can't remember when it began: the Polkadot-fever.
It was long before Meron took courses flamenco and needed a polkadot dress and shoes.
Everywhere we came and the girls spotted a polkadot-thing, my purse wasn't safe anymore;-)Nowadays, the house is full of Polkadots:
- Polkadot shoes
- Polkadot dress
- Polkadot balpoint
- Polkadot tea set
- Polkadot scarf
- Polkadot puppet
- polkadot wrapping paper,
...
only little brother escaped that polkadot fever, he's into superman;-p

The teapot in the first picture is a creation of me and my daughter Maia.
Polka dot is a pattern consisting of dots. Polka dot patterns are quite variable: they range from a series of dots that are equally spaced and sized to a random arrangement of multicoloured dots of different sizes. Polka dots are most commonly seen on children's clothing, toys, and furniture, but they appear in a wide array of contexts. The pattern rarely appears in formal contexts, however, and is generally confined to more playful attire such as bathing suits. Occasionally white on black regularly spaced polka dots appear on more formal clothing.
While polka dots are ancient, they first became common on clothing in the late nineteenth century in Britain. At the same time polka music was extremely popular and the name was also applied to the pattern, despite no real connection between them.

Gek, net nog zo'n bikini besteld voor Hannah bij La Redoute! Ik wist niet dat je dat rood met witte stippen 'polkadot' noemt. Weer iets bijgeleerd... en binnenkort huppelt Hannah dus rond in een polkadot bikini!
