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.

This week our Yes Please! item combines so many things that I love! So there was no way that I could not pass this along to Channelling Dolly readers! Behold the Dolly Mermaid Glitter Box! It is Dolly, as a mermaid, surrounded by glitter!!! Not only that, but she is assuring us that “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright”. And in these current times everyone needs a little assurrance in their lives!
I would like to send a special thank you to Zteven from Etsy. You may remember him as the artist behind The Dolly Parton Duo Pop Art Soup. He remembered us here at Channelling Dolly when he finished up his mermaid art and graciously accepted the offer to share her with you all as well.
The Dolly Mermaid Glitter Box is an 8X8 work of framed art. “Everything is Gonna Be Alright” is derived from the 1977 song “Light of a Clear Blue Morning”. This handmade art consists of a Dolly illustration printed on gloss stock. Dolly is then cut out and collaged with real glitter backgrounds. The finshed piece of sparkly wonder is only available to ship within the United States.
Since I know you will want this piece in your home check out this and all of Zteven’s art at Zteven on Etsy!
Here on Channelling Dolly you probably already know that we love a good Dolly quote. Her wit is admired so much that every Monday is dedicated to the words of the Queen of Country. One quote that always rings true is “Find out who you are, and do it on purpose”. This week our featured artist has created a work of art with just that saying.
The Dolly Parton Art Print with Quote comes to us from Hank at anINSTITUTE via Etsy. This handmade work is available to ship within the United States.

Pop Art that is! Something that you all know about me is that obviously, I love Dolly Parton. What you may not know is that Andy Warhol and his pop art is something else I enjoy immensely. When I spotted Zteven’s shop on Etsy and saw this take on the classic soup cans I had to bring it to you all! Hello, Dolly! I will always love stew as well!

Now that is a question which has certainly been uttered by fans of the Queen of Country Music! Would Dolly add more sparkles? Would Dolly have some funny story to say about this or that? Just what would she do?
Well, thanks to the artwork of Uncle Gertrude’s Etsy shop that question can now be a part of your home!
Printed on 12 x 18 kraft paper in the letterpress style this piece has a great retro feel. For more information please check out Uncle Gertrude’s Etsy shop!
Amongst celebrities I think it would be a fair assessment to say that Dolly Parton is one of the sweetest. Her love for everyone and humble spirit shows that she is a class act and her beautiful, angelic voice reaches your soul. According to The Eternal Flame on Etsy these qualities even deem her something much bigger than a celebrity…..a saint! Who can argue that? I know I can’t!
To commemorate her sainthood, this Etsy shop has crafted a candle in Dolly’s honor. The 8″ unscented candles are handmade. They can be purchased in a variety of colors. For more information check out The Eternal Flame.
When Dolly sang about pouring herself a cup of ambition she was working 9 to 5. Many of us now are drudging through ten to twelve hour workdays. I am sure we can all agree that a cup of ambition is needed more now than ever before!
