This morning I woke up looking forward to seeing what the response was from my post yesterday, because the comments thus far were positive and they seemed to "get it".
Little did I know that I had stirred a pot.
So it seems I have some splainin' to do...
First off, the post was meant in humor. Meaning that I wasn't angry or trying to be hurtful, but instead trying to educate through my 'special' way. Quite a few of you got it, but some really didn't.
For that I'm sorry.
Second, I realize for a lot of you, I'm "new" (even though I'm not) and you don't know me that well. So let me just say here and now that I'm what you would call a smartass. (my apologies for that word if it offends you, but it's the only one I know that sums it up)
Every. single. word. on this blog comes from my heart. What you see here is the real me, not a pretend person trying to be something I'm not. Obviously this can sometimes get me in trouble, like yesterday.
But, I'm not going to stop being me, because I don't know how to be anything else and so what you will always get is honesty. I realize that this is a concept that doesn't go over very well here in our "little" community called Blogland, but that's just how I am.
I'm not here to boost egos or lie about my life. I'm here, because I enjoy sharing with you part of my world and hearing about your world.
Will I share every little detail?
I did that once and it didn't turn out well. People knew things about me that I realized later that I didn't want them to and by that time it was too late.
Back then, I was new. In fact, exceedingly so.
What I will share is my heart and humor.
Even if it doesn't go over very well ;)
See that sidebar?
All of you are on it.
(Unless you're commenting for the first time or you don't have a blog or I've somehow missed the chance to add you. Please let me know!)
Do you know why?
Because you took the time to leave a comment here and I like you. I want to know what's going on with your homes, life, family, joy, trials and tribulations.
Sometimes it takes me awhile to get there, but I always do :)
Guess what else?
I'm not mad at anyone for labeling their style.
If you want to tell people that you have (insert style here), great! I'm not sitting here laughing at my friends.
That would be YOU.
I'm usually just looking at all the prettiness I see.
Do I sometimes wonder why things are labeled the way they are?
Obviously yes ;)
So, I tried to educate you via my weird humor, because I'm passionate about vintage styles and because I think this whole labeling thing has gotten a tad out of hand.
It was my opinion.
Not a paid opinion.
Not a slam on anyone.
Just me being me.
The only person I know how to be.
