Real Living HER

by Maureen McCabe on June 11, 2007

Double dots. The logo in the sidebar here is called “double dots” not polka dots! My manager said so.

The Real Living brand has a big dot with the words Real Living in it. The different offices, HER in Central Ohio, Realty One in Cleveland (ooops I ought to know more but I don’t) have their name in a smaller dot. Our HER is in the little dot.

I’ve always thought of the brands as polka dots.

Everytime I hear the song Itsy-Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini I think of Real Living HER… ok our dots are red. It still works for me.

Early on in the life of both of my blogs I put a company brand in the entries to comply with state real estate laws until I could figure out how to put the brand (polka dots to me) in the sidebar of my blog. I don’t know that I publicly called them polka dots way back when in 2005… on my first blog but you can check the early entries here. They were fondly called polka dots!

These are polka dots according to Wikipedia (my manager told me so):

Polka dots from Wikipedia


“Polka Dot is a pattern consisting of dots. Polka dot patterns are quite variable: they range from a series of dots that are equally spaced and sized to a random arrangement of multicoloured dots of different sizes. Polka dots are most commonly seen on children’s clothing, toys, and furniture, but they appear in a wide array of contexts. The pattern rarely appears in formal contexts, however, and is generally confined to more playful attire such as bathing suits. Occasionally white on black regularly spaced polka dots appear on more formal clothing.”

Single dot?

I don’t want to go mixing brands or anything but that Yogurt commercial… isn’t the Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini yellow with red polka dots?

I like polka dots. I mean no disrespect to the brand (they take it very seriously. I would never try to change the brand, modify it…) but in my brain they are polka dots. Informal, fun. Double dots are random.

I am hoping for the official word about a certain polka dots summer plans.
