Hi Analise, I just love to read your pages, and this one is lovely, because... YES... we have all been misunderstood at times, and it's nice to know we are not the only ones. My husband said to me one time, "What other people think about us is really none of our business" - and I think that is a good thing to remember sometimes. I know that you are a generous person, with a flair for a wee bit of the dramatic (wink) and creative beyond most of our wildest imaginations. I think artist types - intuitive types - sometimes worry too much about what others are thinking. It's sort of like we can 'feel' it. I sure know I do, sometimes. YOu are lovely, inside and out! Thanks for sharing your life with all of us. It does make a difference. And, I hope you 'understand' what I am trying to say! LOL!


You would make a great photographer for a top magazine. The details are delicous to say the least.


I too just love looking at your photos. Are
you using a small digital camera on marco or do you have one of those 35mm fancy ones.

xoxo, Tiffany

This is why I just love you Analise--you're so open and transparent!
I wish you all the success in the world on your up and coming website--if there is anything I can do to help you promote--just say the word!!

i'm not sure how i got here but am so glad i did....'specialy since i think i spend more time bein' misunderstood than the desired understood...you are not alone. and even if you were, your talent 'n pretty things would make it not matter!


my pastor said one time "do you only open your mouth to switch feet?", thought that was hilarious! Yep, we ALL do it! I adopted my daughter (from China) & even though she & I know i am her REAL mom, we still get that sometimes, but i usually realize it's just a slip & not meant to be mean. I had the cashier at a drive-thru fast food tell me how wonderful it was i adopted & then proceeded to say "why did you, is something wrong with you?". Lucky for her, i have a great sense of humor & adoption was a FIRST choice for me!! I wanted to say "when is your break, because there are so many things wrong with me this short time in the drive-thru won't cover it!" the whole story is on my blog (at the beginning) if anyone wants to read it...

OH Analise I am so glad I'm not the only one with foot in mouth disease!


Glad to hear other do this too! I think really this is what makes us human. Pretty pictures too!


Oh yes Analise! Been there, done that! Over the internet, it is especially easy to misunderstand something totally!! I've had that happen and it doesn't feel good! Sometimes my mouth gets faster than my brain, and something totally stupid, or something I couldn't possibly mean comes out! We all make mistakes, and might be totally misunderstood, or we might think someone else feels one way, when it is totally the opposite. We are all human! It happens. So please don't let that get you down. I think you're awesome!

LOVE the pictures, BTW!

Back Porch Blessings,


Being sensitive is a GOOD thing when it's the kind of sensitivity that aches for others feelings, even when you unthinkingly hurt them yourself... your friends know you better...and know you're sincere when you say you just didn't think... Keep being that sweet and caring. They'll forget and forgive.

I think in the computer world it is so easy to be misinterpreted. I always give the person the benefit of the doubt. :)

I think we've all been there. It's even worse over internet because people can read something and TOTALLY miss-understand!

Cheryl Dack

Love it...and you! :)


I just had to comment on this one! I totally needed to read this as I just went through a misunderstanding with someone who read my blog! I felt so horrible even though the person just misunderstood what I did. Your words comforted me because I have a bad tendency to blame myself and take it personally when someone is upset with me- even if it wasn't my fault. Thanks again for your honesty and advise!



Hi. I clicked on Sugar Sugar on another blog's sidebar. This post is exactly what I needed. I was recently misunderstood and some people just don't want to let things go. I need to be understanding that it is easier for that person to dwell on my small mistake than to look at the bigger difficulties of life - no job, etc.


life is short -- enjoy the pretties! :)



Hi Anita! Thanks for your sweet comments!!! The cupcake pins are from Gigi Minor on etsy:

SO SO Sweet!

chat soon,


You hit the nail on the head. All my life I have been told that people perceive me way differently - in a bad way....that could not be further from the truth!!! I am a very warm fuzzy person...trust me, but sometimes I come across so different and don't even mean to! Talk about an uncomfortable situation with your stories you shared... don't beat yourself up though. You are a child of God! You are such a doll! Thanks for the uplifting photos too...I think I need to do some shopping from you...I have not in awhile - BTW - where did you get the darling cupcake stick pins - cute in ribbons!!!


I've had my foot in my mouth so many times that I'm beginning to like the taste of foot. We've all been there. Don't beat yourself up. Life does a good enough job of that as it is.


Hi Linda! The crowns were from Andrea at OneHundreadWishes.com!


Linda Lou

Where did you get those silver crowns, please?

Sara Ito

Geez, I just felt like I was reading my own post. Happens to me too, at my sisters baby shower, I did a prize for the person that had the most children. One of the moms asked, 'do they have to be birthed by us to count as our kids?'.. and I replied (in front of my cousin who adopted)' yes, they have to have come out of you to count as your kids.' There you go.. see, now don't feel so bad, it happens to all of us


It's alright, Analise! We are only human and we all make mistakes and say things that we don't mean to be insensitive sometimes...they just come out of our mouths the wrong way!! I know I am guilty!!lol I love the Proverb you shared and all the beautiful pictures of your gorgeous treasures!

Holly Abston

Oh my gosh, Analise, thank you for sharing such a.... uhm.... uncomfortable story (LOL) about something you've said that you regretted. I can't even count how many times I wished I could suck my words right back into my mouth. Thanks for showing me I'm not alone, and for reminding me to consider this type of thing when others say crazy things to me. xoxo


Oh, Analise....I've so been there and done that. I can empathize totally. Keep your chin up, at least we can admit it. Most people would rather people not think that they've done it. You are quite brave. I love the pictures of your beautiful mess as well. :)

Oh, I just love your yummy photos of all your wonderful things, especially the jewellery box filled with pretty supplies. Love it all. And your colours are always SO happy.
