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.

  1. 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.

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

    And I LOVE wearing sweats under my dresses! πŸ™‚ 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! πŸ™‚

  3. 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…

  4. 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! πŸ™‚

  5. 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?

  6. 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. πŸ˜‰


  7. 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?


  8. 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,

  9. 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! πŸ™‚

  10. i love the look. i’ve been wearing dresses over britches for years. . .my hubby always says. . .is that even in style. . .i’ve told him i don’t care. . .but as i get older, i do seem to care what i’m wearing….well, since i’ve had the boys!!!
    oh. . . and if everything goes as planned, we are closing on the sale of our old house monday!!!!!! yeah!!!!!! what a blessing!

  11. Love the asymmetrical wall. Looks great!!

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


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

  13. 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!
