Confessions of a Bibliophile

by Edie Wadsworth on August 31, 2009

I bought this sign from My Sweet Savannah a few months back for our anniversary. It’s traveled a bit around the house and finally landed over our bed. I enjoyed it as I sat for long stretches of time and read this weekend. I’m reading The True End of Civil Government by John Locke and […]

Duchess of Windsor Dining Room :: Deconstructed

by Edie Wadsworth on August 27, 2009

This room was inspired by a photo from Cottage Living which you can see here, and by my love for all things vintage. And the more I live with it, the more I love it. My favorite seat in the room is this comfy chair that I bought at a thrift store for $2 and […]

Geography lessons with the Griswalds

by Edie Wadsworth on August 26, 2009

As a vital part of our homeschool, I like to choose a few quality toys that they can play with while they’re listening to books on tape or while we’re taking breaks. Legos have to be my favorite, second only to Lincoln logs. But girl-ish legos are hard to come by. So, when I saw […]

Color Trends, Big Hair, and Blue Eye Shadow

by Edie Wadsworth on August 24, 2009

You can ask my sister, I’ve never been one to pass up a good trend. In 1987, I had big hair. In 1993, I wore stirrup pants. In 1999, I bought a Suburban—- and in 2008, I started a blog. With age comes the wisdom to know when ‘trendy’ touches on ‘why is that forty […]

Landslide

by Edie Wadsworth on August 11, 2009

The days come one after another without my permission. If you asked me to articulate precisely my thoughts and emotions as I wander along in this ‘valley‘, I could not. When Caiti was eight years old, we drove across the Blue Ridge Mountains listening and singing with reckless abandon to “Landslide” from our favorite Dixie […]

Life on the Lake

by Edie Wadsworth on August 7, 2009

If the day and night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry , more immortal,—that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from […]

Knit Together

by Edie Wadsworth on August 5, 2009

I have a strange way of grieving. Lately, I am always on the verge of tears. Today, my eyes welled up with tears at least three times and I can’t even remember why. But I don’t usually slow down or withdraw. I cry frequently and then feverishly keep my hands and my head occupied. (officially […]

Cherry Picking

by Edie Wadsworth on August 2, 2009

We went out to (brother) Jeff’s farm and picked cherries from the most gorgeous cherry tree you’ve ever seen. Everywhere I looked was a photographer’s dream world; there were old barns, grapevines, kids picking cherries, wheat fields. I could’ve stayed there all day and used up all my memory card. This is one of my […]
