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.

Retro and Ravishing by Modern June

Kelly at Modern June has stolen my heart with her retro designs in fruit prints and polka dots. I am really taken with her shop description which says it's:

"...a shop that features Cool Stuff for the Hip Housewife!"
The Modern June line includes aprons, totes, tablecloths, splat mats, and bibs. All are hip and cute. Here is just a sampling of her delightful designs.
