The Pearly Story Behind "Dusting in Pearls"


I always feel like a walking paradox. I can get out in the garden with my shovel and sledgehammer and love every dusty dirty minute I'm out there. I spend the majority of my life dressed in my "grubbies". Yet there's a part of me deep down inside that still likes "the frillies", "the pearlies", and "the sparklies"--all the pretty things. Maybe it's all the great classic Hollywood movies I watched as a kid. I don't know. All I know is that I can be dirty and sweaty and still want to put on heels when it isn't practical; buy the prettiest apron even if it will get dirty; and don pearls when all I'm going to be doing is dusting and vacuuming the house. It doesn't make sense. It doesn't have to. I've decided to claim it, celebrate it, and have fun with it... and create some "pearly" goodness along the way.

If You're Gonna Wear Pearls While You Dust...

...you might as well be dusting something sparkly!

Like this "Pretty in Pink Beaded 3-Light Bowl Pendant Chandelier"...



Or maybe you'd prefer something more petite like this "Petite Pink Drop Crystal pendant Chandelier"


Do you like petite but would rather have something that isn't pink? How about this blue violet "Bella Collection Four Light Strass Crystal Chandelier" ?


You could really streamline your illuminary dusting activities and simply get a strand of bubblegum pink lights from Candy Lights by Jorabeel's...


...or a pretty pink bulb to add to your favorite lamp...

...and even something special for the holidays like this candycane scented bulb for your nightlight (which is the easiest to dust of them all).
