good news/bad news

by Edie Wadsworth on May 11, 2010

The good news is: I finally finished my asymmetric plate wall in my dining room. My dear sister, who was here for Mother’s Day, even approved. And she’s not usually a fan of anything asymmetric.
The bad news is: I fear I may be channeling Mrs. Roper from 3′s Company. I’ve taken ‘house dress’ to a whole new level.

Wow…you do resemble Mrs. Roper! How funny sis! And yes, the plates look great!


4 Sheri May 11, 2010 at 2:14 pm

Laughing at your Mrs. Roper get up. To be honest you look extremely comfortable and cute as always.

Edie, this is hillarious! I love it! At least your trying to make your comfy clothes have a bit of flair. :)I also love your assymmetric wall decor. I can’t wait to see more pics from the mother’s day tea.

Love the plates on the wall. It looks great!!

And I LOVE wearing sweats under my dresses! :) It’s the most comfortable house dress out there! And it’s a plus cause you can just strip the sweats before Hubby walks through the door, and you look CUTE! :)

I’ll bet the OLDER kids had a fit when they saw you in this! You are still adorable!

Love the plate wall!


9 Kim May 11, 2010 at 4:50 pm

You are so much fun! And cool!


10 Debra May 11, 2010 at 4:51 pm

Love your plate wall. Well, at least you look cute! :)


11 Vicki K May 11, 2010 at 5:07 pm

I love asymmetry! You have inspired meto get a move on and get my plates up (in the kitchen). What have you decided about painting the walls? The sweats? well,…ahem…


12 Elizabeth May 11, 2010 at 5:31 pm

Love the wall! I wish I had such a creative eye for those types of things. Sweats and a dress looks so cute and is probably just as comfy! :)


13 Marty@A Stroll thru Life May 11, 2010 at 6:04 pm

Love the outfit. That’s the new fashion don’t you know. You look adorable. I really like the plate wall too. It is just fantastic. Hugs, Marty


14 Holly Days May 11, 2010 at 6:14 pm

Love the plates. LOL really love the house dress.


15 Miriam May 11, 2010 at 6:23 pm

Loving the plate wall.

I have to say I do this all the time, with leggings or yoga pants under my dresses because my legs get *cold* in our 1880s house! We’re in good company, aren’t we?


16 Erin from Skoots and Cuddles May 11, 2010 at 6:52 pm

a. love the plates
b. i think you look cute as mrs. roper!


17 Kelly May 11, 2010 at 7:12 pm

That is hilarious! And you even added the necklace!

LOL! That’s great. Sometimes at the end of a day, I catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror and wonder how my outfit could have evolved over the course of a day.

Love your plate wall and beautiful painting. Are those tissue paper balls in the photo? I keep seeing those everywhere and am so tempted to make a few. I just can’t figure out how to dust them, but then, I doubt a little dust can hurt. ;-)



20 Angie May 11, 2010 at 8:39 pm

HAA!! Love it!


21 Lanie May 11, 2010 at 10:55 pm

I love the wall Edie! As far as the “house dress” {I call mine a moo moo after my mother’s house dresses}LOL there’s nothing wrong with a little layering right?



22 Vintagesquirrel May 12, 2010 at 1:40 am

Hi Edie! I love your new banner. The plates look fantastic… I find asymmetric so hard to do right.
Love, Michelle
P.S. Mrs. Roper was kinda hot, no?


23 Sarah May 12, 2010 at 1:58 am

I’m loving the plates AND the house dress.
My only advice would be to trade the sweats in for some capri leggings. Still comfy and practical, yet slightly more fashionable. I own a pair and love them. I look feminine yet don’t have to sit all lady like! ;>
God’s blessings,
Sarah :D

You’d look lovely in burlap. :)

You remind me in looks of Miranda Lambert. Is that her name? I think that’s her name. Country singer. Does those cotton commercials …


25 lindsey - the pleated poppy May 12, 2010 at 4:22 am

26 Kristi May 12, 2010 at 4:44 am

LOL I love your outfit, Mrs Roper and all! I loved her on that show! And I love your DR wall!! Looks fantastic! I’m waiting with baited breath for your kitchen. I went and priced the doors I was eyeballin’ and almost had cardiac arrest, LOL. There might need to be a plan B, lol! :)


27 Kris Akagi May 12, 2010 at 1:36 pm

Sis! I’m not sure how the plates are supposed to look, but YOU look fabulous, my dear!


28 jessica leigh May 12, 2010 at 7:47 pm

You can totally pull off that look. I don’t think I could do it on my best day. LOL

Edie, your blog makes me happy :)


33 Gina @ The Shabby Chic Cottage May 13, 2010 at 3:32 pm

How funny! I roam around most days in an old cotton dress, it’s just comfy :)

Love your assymetrical plate wall!


34 Trudy May 13, 2010 at 5:18 pm

Perhaps not…perhaps you just happen to be extrordiarilly honest Edie. Comfort should always rule at home.


35 Karrie Ann May 13, 2010 at 9:48 pm

Oh, Edie! Did you read the blog of Veith today? (go now if you haven’t) I didn’t even know that CCLA existed! I am elated! Kansas City is only a 2 hour drive for me!

Anxiously awaiting your next home schooling post! You are such an inspiring lady!

God Bless You, Edie! …and that beautiful family of yours!


36 anna see May 14, 2010 at 12:16 am

37 patty May 15, 2010 at 9:24 pm

38 emily May 18, 2010 at 11:39 pm

I love that wall. And I’m partial to symmetrical things most of the time. Nicely done!
