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.

If you're looking for some adorably cute sweet calorie-free treats for the holidays, then look no further than pinc.stuff. Sheryl Ng creates and crafts such sweet delicacies that you'd think they were edible.

I have to agree with Sheryl when she asks, "Don't these little cupcakes bring back sweet memories?" They do for me! This dainty little replicas look just like the original edibles.

I just couldn't resist sharing this precious charm bracelet with you! Is this just the cutest conglomeration of mini marshmallows you've ever seen?!?!

And Sheryl lets you choose which one of this lovely dainty desserts you want on an 18" inch silver chain necklace. Oh my! It's so hard to choose just one!

Sheryl offers so many pieces that you've got to go over to pinc.stuff and see them all for yourself.
