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.

Miss Diva Shoes

I peruse the offerings at Zazzle quite frequently to try and ferret out design gems that may be going undiscovered. That's how I found these adorable "Miss Diva" Keds Champion mini slip-on shoes by Jennie at Kurono Creations. They are so comfy and yet so stylish! The perfect combination for the busy domestic diva, right?

These are adorable slip-ons! Because I have always felt that I have short legs - ha! - I never wear flat shoes - except for pretty, girly comfy white slippers. Even all my pairs of flip flops have at least a 1" sole/heel. I would love a pair of these with a little bit of heel - will check out her site to see what she offers, so thanks for sharing with us. Also, just want to say I love your Blog - this is the first time I have visited and I WILL be back - great job!

Those are awesome except that they are way out of my price range! Good find though.
