Lamps are a girl’s best friend

by Edie Wadsworth on May 28, 2009

I’ve said it before, but I have a strict policy in my house. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES TURN ON OVERHEAD LIGHTS. My children faithfully abide by the rules ’cause if mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy’. Nothing puts me in a worse mood than someone turning on my Walmart-style flourescent light in the kitchen. […]

3 things

lifeingrace

This post has 3 clearly defined objectives. 1.  I wanted to make sure you saw my new button.  Isn’t she lovely?  She’s located at the bottom of the page. 2.    Because it makes me feel like I’m giving an important presentation: I wanted to use the ‘block quote’ box; which one would use for […]

Graduation Garden Party

by Edie Wadsworth on May 25, 2009

Edited to Add:  I’m excited to join Kimba’s Garden Party and welcome all you Kimba friends to my blog.  She has been such an encouragement to us all.  I’m planning to host (if Mr. Linky cooperates) a ‘Painted Patio Furniture’ Party next Monday so I hope you’ll join me.  If you don’t have any furniture […]

Project Procrastination

by Edie Wadsworth on May 22, 2009

So, while I’ve been mistreating windows with canvas dropcloths (not my original idea, but brilliant) and spray painting many things yellow (more to come on that soon)….. …..and doing all those little things you never do until company comes……. Darcy has performed a small miracle here at lifeingrace!   I’ll be working on adding ‘stuff’ […]

Curriculum List and Review

by Edie Wadsworth on May 22, 2009

We follow a classical program called The Well-Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer.  It is history and literature based and  there is a lot of freedom to fill in the ‘specifics’ for each individual subject;  Susan makes recommendations and then you must figure out what works best for your family.  We have just finished our […]

Project Graduation

by Edie Wadsworth on May 18, 2009

Want to know what I did this weekend?   I did what I do best.  I redecorranged—that’s a technical term for ‘redecorating by rearranging what you already have’.    I gave this room a makeover a few years ago for my daughter Caiti and we have both loved it so!  It has such a relaxing, artsy, […]

Friday Hikes

by Edie Wadsworth on May 15, 2009

Today, I’m joining Melissa from The Inspired Room as we celebrate and cherish the beauty, right where we are and right where we live.  Click here for more weekend inspiration. We live 5 minutes from a beautiful state park.   For the past 2 or 3 months, we’ve taken the girls there every Friday afternoon […]

Wall of Frames

by Edie Wadsworth on May 13, 2009

You can see my inspiration picture here.   What I really wanted to do was hang ‘faux’ board and batten and paint the walls.  But when Stevie said to me “Step away from the paint brush,” I figured I should listen.  At least for now.  So to jazz up, or ‘cottage’ up my living room, […]

3 things

by Edie Wadsworth on May 12, 2009

1. In lieu of painting my living room (and risking vehement verbal outbursts from my family), I’ve been working on a wall of frames sorta like this:I’ll show you later today. You’re gonna love it. I just know it. 2. Darcy, from Lifewithmy3boybarians and Graphically Designing, is tweaking my site for me as we speak. […]

The Fall

by Edie Wadsworth on May 8, 2009

I don’t know if I’ve ever told you about this place. A magical little sanctuary that Stevie labored countless months and years over. A quaint little cottage that he had built for us in the middle of beautiful mountainous country, with a spring fed pond he researched and designed and personally stocked with all kinds […]

Exhibit A: Honor’s Day

by Edie Wadsworth on May 7, 2009

It’s a curious thing, this homeschooling. There are so many things I love about it. The closeness (can’t peel them off me–EVER) with the children, the control over their environment, the classical training, the ability to impart Lutheran doctrine and practice, and even learning to be IN my house 24/7, are all reasons I’m beginning […]
