Tools & Fun Items with Polka Dots

Updated on November 19, 2014

Duct Tape, Stools, Garden & Household Gadgets

One thing I've learned from my wife is that just because it's an everyday item, it doesn't have to look plain.

In looking for tools for our home my wife and I have our own sets. Having the same items that look different keeps us from borrowing each others, and they can easily be identified.

POLKA DOT TOOLS - and accessories! They are the latest in fashion for both male and female. Everyday items become "cool tools" with a dab of color here and there. Functional home gadgets that are fun to have in your home or give as gifts.

Now I'm sure all you guys are going to run out there and snatch up every kind of polka dot tool or accessory there is. They're growing on me though. At least I won't have to worry about another guy stealing them.

My wife loves to paint. This looks like a great way to store and organize some art, craft or garden supplies for her without getting my tools stashed in her container!

Case Series Lockback Folding Knife

Currently Not Available

3 inches closed length, Surgical stainless drop point blade, White bone handles with blue polka dots, Nickel Silver Bolsters and Inlay Shield

I had an "ugly" experience about 20 years ago with a penknife without a locking blade. Since then I only buy and use lock back knives. The locking blade is an excellent safety feature and helps remove some of the human error we all face when using a knife. And hey, polka dots and a locking blade in the same package? What more can you ask for?

Duct & Packing Tape

I included these "just because". They are kind of neat and really are much more attractive than the traditional silver/gray duct tape and clear packing tape. I wonder if the postal service has a special rate for polka dot taped packages?

This is the type of thing that most men wouldn't even look twice at. I carry my stuff in a plain old scrufty looking 5 gallon bucket. It is semi-functional, for me at least. But for the organized gardening lady, it may be just the thing she has been looking for.

Plenty of room for tools and the inner compartment can carry seeds or bottles of sprays and plant foods.

      That is why the plunger is so pretty...so you can leave it out and your guests can handle the uh, "dirty work":)

      I love colorful tools, they give me the extra dose of positive energy I need to get the job done rather than procrastinate, the colorful polkadot plunger is funny though because it would take a lot more than bright colors for me to look forward to that job.
