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.

The Maiden Voyage of "Dusting in Pearls"



I can't think of a better way to start out this blog than by featuring some cute and sassy rubber household gloves that make housework a little more colorful and lot more stylish. Chick Lingo has a great selection of gloves (one set even has a matching apron).

Hey Cindy! This blog looks like it will be a lot of fun! Looking at your links reminded me that you were the one who first introduced me to FlyLady many years ago. It has made all the difference! If you ever saw my room as a teenager (and if you did, you'd remember it) you would not believe that the same person who lived there also inhabits my apartment. It's a night and day difference. So thanks for introducing me to this wonderful resource. (My husband thanks you too!)
