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.

Plum Blossom Spring

Plum Blossom Spring

For half of the world, it's spring! And even if you don't live in the southern hemisphere, you can still love pink year-round. That's why I've made the above photographic art piece entitled "Plum Blossom Spring" available for free download to all my pearly readers. And if you know someone that loves pink and would love this, send them over here too! The more the merrier.

This piece is a digital art composition by me using my photography. These beautiful plum blossoms were on my tree last February and will be again in only a few months.
