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!?
All the Details:
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.

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!
All the Details:
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!

It is believed that spirit animals give us wisdom and power. While many of the quizzes I have done to determine my personal spirit animal points to it being a goat, I prefer the option of my idol being mine. Laura Owen Designs said it perfectly with this t-shirt pictured below. That is right…Dolly Parton is my spirit animal! Who else has given us wisdom such as” I’m not offended by all the dumb blonde jokes because I know I’m not dumb… and I also know that I’m not blonde.” Or given us the power to see how one person can change so many lives as she did during the recent fires in her Tennessee mountain homeland.

Aside from the talent that Dolly Parton possesses she also has an undeniable beauty. It is no wonder that when Talula Christian set out to create a sketch that she used Dolly as her Muse. The spark for this piece came from Talula’s desire to see Dolly in concert, something also on my bucket list! I must say that Talula did a perfect job of recreating Dolly’s beauty on paper.
All the details:
Avaiable via Talula Christian’s shop on Etsy, this item is made in the USA, but can be shipped worldwide. The Dolly Parton Portrait Sketch is an 8X10 print. This print in printed on 80lb Pastel paper, which looks just like the original sketch.
“There is no such thing as natural beauty” you may remember, is a quote from Dolly Parton in the hit movie Steel Magnolias. This quote could not be closer to my heart, and wallet for that matter. Or lack of money in my wallet after many monthly trips for hair products, eyeliner, concealer, etc. Thanks to Renewed Chattanooga via Etsy this sign and sentiment can now be yours! How adorable would it be in a powder room to remind yourself that you are not alone in your quest for beauty!
The Steel Magnolias Dolly Parton Quote Hand Painted Wooden Sign is available in a 24″ X 34″ rustic piece. It is crafted with a medium stain with a gray wash. This sign is available for shipping in the United States.

And in these current times everyone needs a little assurrance in their lives!
