Full disclosure here….I have loved Dolly since as long as I can remember. Her sweet voice provided the soundtrack to my childhood as I hummed along with all of her songs. As I got older though one song that I used to hum along to took on a different meaning. That song was ” Jolene”.
While “Jolene” is a very catchy song and Dolly’s voice draws you in and breaks your heart at the same time, the story behind it really gets me! Why was my heroine begging some woman not to take her man? What fool would leave the gorgeous and talented Dolly? And why would my Dolly, my role model want to be with a man that was obviously an idiot if he contemplated leaving her? So very many questions!!
As I was searching for this week’s Yes Please! feature I ran across this item from Word Play Design UK via Etsy and had a hallelujah moment! Yes, Jolene, just bloody take him! My sentiment exactly! How is that for Jolene with a twist!?
The Lyric Print inspired by the famous Dolly Parton song “Jolene” would make a perfect gift for a friend going through a breakup or as an anti-Valentine gift! It is a professionally produced giclee print to ensure your print lasts a lifetime, much longer than a relationship with a fool would last! This item is available to ship worldwide from the UK and arrives unframed.

The amazing thing about the fourth largest city in the United States, Houston, Texas, is that there is always a hidden gem that is yet to be discovered. One such gem that I had the chance to recently visit is Smither Park. After seeing this spot time and time again on Instagram I knew I had to see it in person. Pictures do not do it justice!
When I spied this week’s Yes Please! feature on Etsy I immediately let out a chuckle! For far too long we have been adorning our cars with pineapples and little trees that lack any personality. Those things hung from our rearview mirrors to make our cars smell good, but didn’t look very cool hanging there. Now thanks to Hey Yolo via Etsy your car can have a fresh scent and be full of personality. In fact, it can have Dolly Parton! Not only is she pretty, but she smells good too!
The Dolly Parton Air Freshener is available in a variety of scents. These include Fruity Pebble, Lavender Sunshine, California Coast and many more. You can also purchase the air freshener with no smell should you just want Dolly to beautify your ride! While Dolly would look great hanging around in your car, she can also be used in lockers, under sinks or in drawers. Should your Dolly air freshener stop smelling as strongly after extended use never worry. Just spritz on some perfume or essential oil and she will continue to provide smell good powers.
Hey Yolo’s air fresheners are handmade and they are about 3.2 inches X 3.2 inches. They are made in the United States and available to ship worldwide. Check them out at Hey Yolo!
