art::the ancient path

by Edie Wadsworth on June 30, 2011

“Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. Emily, my dear blogging friend and author of a blog and a brand new forthcoming book, writes often about ‘relentlessly pursuing your art’-—no matter how grand […]

Random mumbo gumbo

by Edie Wadsworth on June 22, 2011

1. I told you about our church’s plan to read the New Testament this summer. Would you think less of me if I told you  we’re woefully behind? Why is it that it can be so hard (especially in the summer) to squeeze in time for the most powerful words on  earth? These words of […]

by Edie Wadsworth on June 20, 2011

I think this is my favorite design so far!! I’m so excited about this room. It’s a laundry room/craft room/office/schoolroom.

I have a back porch!!! It’s gonna be so awesome back there. Our other house had a back deck that wasn’t covered and was much smaller. I think this one will be much more usable, even in the summer. The framers are working on my screen porch today—which makes me happy! The plumbers have started […]

‘My Little Mother’ and thoughts on mothering

by Edie Wadsworth on June 1, 2011

The girls and I are almost finished with book 2 (Anne of Avonlea) of the Anne of Green Gables series. It’s got to be one of my favorite book series of all time. Lucy Maud Montgomery was such a phenomenal writer and was able to craft a character that will forever live in the hearts […]
