As promised, here are a few of my favorites from the “Because Painted Wood is Pretty” linky party.  To see my new kitchen and all of the links, go here. This is my friend Kelly’s house. She lives in a beautiful house in the historic district of town and if I could go take these […]


Retro Cottage Kitchen is STILL at it……

by Edie Wadsworth on April 29, 2009

Y’all have no idea how much fun this Retro Cottage Kitchen has been for me.   First, just the fun of watching it all come together, then the fun of the big reveal and the linky party.  I’m exhausted!  But I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your […]

Where angels fly

by Edie Wadsworth on April 26, 2009

I had every intention of showing you my ‘redecorranged’ bathroom today.  It’ll have to wait.  My son, who is JUST FINE, was hit by a drunk driver on the interstate late last night.   He walked away unscathed from a potentially life-threatening accident.   That kind of news changes your plans.  It changes the way […]


Tales from a Homeschool Conference

by Edie Wadsworth on April 24, 2009

As many of you know, Steve and I took the ‘little’ girls with us to Cincinnati last weekend for the Midwest Homeschool Conference. Because this is our first year homeschooling and our first conference to attend, we were a little afraid at what we might find. Since we’re only taking two of our children, will […]

1. What is your faith/denomination?  We belong to the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod—-ie. the conservative ‘branch’ of the Lutheran church.   My husband grew up Lutheran while I journeyed through fundamentalism and then pop American evangelism before embracing Lutheran doctrine and practice.  I often blog about my journey of faith in Christ.  I recently wrote […]

Grace and Parenting

by Edie Wadsworth on April 20, 2009

Gracie and I–7 years ago One of the speakers at the homeschool conference had a session titled ‘The Education of a Child–the Wisdom of Fenelon.  I was intrigued–so I ordered the book on Amazon before the trip and read it on the way.   Francois Fenelon was an archbishop in the Catholic church in France […]


Prom Night and fighting back tears……

by Edie Wadsworth on April 19, 2009

I cried silent tears at least half the way home from Cincinnati today. I know it should be a fun day. A day filled with joy. And it would be…..if  this weren’t another ‘last’.   So, I listened to Matt Kearney sing ‘Breathe In, Breathe Out’…… and I sighed heavy and remembered how blessed I […]


100 things (painfully continued) Edition 3

by Edie Wadsworth on April 15, 2009

First, peak in on my project but be careful….there’s stuff everywhere! My cabinet project is going well. I’m taking the cabinet doors off and embracing open shelving. They are soaking in SEVERAL coats of ‘Roman column’ paint from Sherwin Williams. The bottom cabinets are a nice hue of blue and they will be sanded and […]


Welcome back!

by Edie Wadsworth on April 13, 2009

A few things I learned during my comment-fast: 1. As soon as I typed the words “I’m closing my comments during Lent”, I instantly regretted it and wondered if I’d be able to hold out for forty days. I knew it would change blogging for me. I knew it would help to clarify the ‘medium’ […]


He is Risen!

by Edie Wadsworth on April 12, 2009

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth shall be able to separate us from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Rom.8:29 He is risen!  He is risen indeed!

Read Books and Live Well, part 1

by Edie Wadsworth on April 11, 2009

read books

I’m passionate about reading and about promoting reading in my circle of influence.  I’m on a quest to read the classics that I never really enjoyed in high school or never read at all. I’m using Susan Wise Bauer’s book The Well-Educated Mind: A Guide to the Classical Education You Never Had as a guide […]

Maundy Thursday

by Edie Wadsworth on April 9, 2009

Our Lord Jesus Christ, on the night when He was betrayed, took bread, and when He had given thanks,  He broke it and gave it to the disciples and said: “Take, eat; this is My body, which is given for you.  This do in remembrance of  Me.” In the same way also He took the […]

Eat your heart out Kevin Bacon……..

by Edie Wadsworth on April 6, 2009

7 things I need to tell you about the choir concert 1.  Taylor had a solo singing ‘Footloose’.   He did an excellent job and even threw in a few ‘moves’.   I use the term ‘moves’ loosely. 2. This year has been wonderful because Taylor and Caiti have been in the same choir, along […]
