Bringing you Dolly inspired finds from across the internet.

The Brightest Star

Can you believe that ’tis the season to start putting our Christmas trees up? I for one can not, but speaking of putting up our trees do I have a find for you today! Many of the regular Channelling Dolly readers will remember the feature on Kitsch Culture and their POP Lites. Well just in time for the holiday season they have bestowed upon us the brightest star to place atop our tree in the form of our brightest star-Dolly!! 

The Brightest Star

All of the Details: 

The Dolly Parton Light-up Tree Topper is made by Devon of Kitsch Culture. He uses a technique that he created of embedding image transparencies in epoxy resin. The tree topper is battery powered to allow Dolly to shine as she is meant to! Pink glitter tinsel is added around the edge to give it that final touch of sparkle!

While this star would make your tree fun and unique it would also make a great gift for any other Dolly fans you may have on your Christmas list! For more info please check out the link to Kitsch Culture here

Dolly, You Are Radiant

Anyone who is a fan of Dolly Parton knows that she is beautiful and talented. Let’s face it, Dolly, you are radiant! But did you know that with the help of Kitsch Culture Dolly can literally light your way with her radiant beauty? Well, she can! 

Kitsch Culture‘s owner Devon Poole has developed a process of casting image transparencies into epoxy resin to create POP Lites:

Dolly, You Are Radiant

The process of creating POP Lites results in a stunning image behind a glass like surface. These decorative night lights look beautiful lit, yet still do not lose their luster when turned off.

Dolly, You Are Radiant

All of the Details:

While POP Lites are created in Toronto, Canada they are available to ship worldwide! Should you prefer a different pop culture icon in addition to Dolly reach out to Devon via the Kitsch Culture link. Notice I say in addition to Dolly as why would you prefer another icon instead!  😉 I digress, reach out to Devon as he is open to creating custom pieces! The shop also features POP Lites from some of my other personal favorites growing up: Jem and the Holograms, Wonder Woman and rest his beautiful soul Prince.

Check out Kitsch Culture as I am sure you will find some of your other personal favorites as well!

Dolly is Such a Character

Caricatures are such a fun piece of artwork.  Above all the subject of the drawing always has their features completely exaggerated and become a character of themselves. Little quirks or larger features become magnified, but most of all they are a whimsical cartoon version of a person.  This week our Yes Please! item is an exaggeration on our lovely queen. Dolly is such a character already that there is no doubt a play on her features would be over the top!  Behold the Dolly Parton Celebrity Caricature from Don Howard Studios!

When You Just Can’t Choose Just One Dolly Parton Item

When Channelling Dolly first started last summer I wanted to start the Yes Please! feature as a way to bring Dolly inspired items to my readers. At that time I reached out to Kayci Wheatley and she was gracious enough to be the first feature with her Dolly umbrella! Back then Kayci was selling her groovy things on Etsy. However, she has now branched out to her very own website and you guys it is so good! I tried to pick just one item to show you today, but this is what happens when you can’t choose just one Dolly Parton item!

Atomicrocketpoplab

When scouring the internet for items for the weekly Yes Please! feature I look for shops that speak my language. Of course, here on Channelling Dolly there needs to be a Dolly item, but also something else to catch my eye. This week’s shop Atomicrocketpoplab got my attention by transporting me back to my youth. 

Shop owner Rocket Hulsey has created a set of six Dolly Parton magnets showing off our favorite lady in different looks. Not only does Atomicrocketpoplab have Dolly though! Rocket mixes in his love of classic pop culture in a way that by looking at the shop online you feel as if you have walked into a cool vintage record store! Think notebooks with the likes of Cyndi Lauper and Motley Crue. Pins with different artists including the one who my heart still mourns for, Prince. It is like a fantastic blast from the past this shop!

Not only are these beauties perfect for the fridge, but wouldn’t Dolly look great in a cube helping you smile at your 9 to 5. Or more up to today’s standards your 7 to 6! Either way, head over to Atomicrocketpoplab and give the shop a hello from Channelling Dolly! 

Greetings Doll!

Ever stand in the greeting card section of your local store desperately trying to to find the perfect card? Not easy is it? If you are like me I usually just end up settling for an ok one just to get out of the store! For this exact reason, the greeting card company featured today was created! 

After having a hard time finding unique card options Angel was inspired to create something different. From this, Ex-Girlfriends Rebellion Cards was born. Angel was on a quest to make fun greeting cards that are less throw away after you read them and more keep on your fridge for a good laugh! The cards on this fun Etsy shop are inspired by pop culture celebs like Oprah and Justin Bieber among many others. No doubt here on Channelling Dolly the Happy Birthday Doll card would be our favorite!

Jolene With a Twist

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!? 

Jolene with a twist, Jolene, Dolly Parton

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.
