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.

Le Core Femme

My most recent find for "pearly" goodness is an Etsy shop called Le Core Femme that celebrates "unrestrained beauty, power & mystery" in many forms of "wearable art". And they've just announced the release of their new line of aprons known as "Hot Momma Aprons".

Here's what a "Hot Momma Apron" looks like...

The "Cherries on Top" pin-up style apron is reversible with halter ties around the neck and extra long waist ties. Doesn't it just say "Marilyn"?

Other wearable art at Le Core Femme includes handmade beads to inspire you to create wearable art yourself. I really like these adorable handmade pink purse and high heel shoe beads...

And one of my other favorite offerings at Le Core Femme is this beautiful "Forever and Always" sterling and lampwork bracelet.

There's so much more awaiting you at Le Core Femme. Head on over there and see what I mean.
