31 Days|Day 31 Can I Get an Amen?!?!

by Edie Wadsworth on November 2, 2011

Can anyone tell me WHY it takes 3 lifetimes to upload a video to YouTube?

I should have started uploading this on Day 1 and perhaps it would have been ready.

Finally, I present to you the very helter skelter video tour of the main level.    That’s all I had the energy for and besides, it took all the live long day to upload this one as is.

And I can never get those minutes back.

I apologize in advance for my dorky portion at the beginning.    Apparently I say “but anyways” far too much.
Note the open sugar container and the homeade bread. Apparently, besides “but anyways”, I adore all manner of carbs.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the 31 Days and if I never blog again as long as I live, it’s been swell knowing ya :)

Buuuuuut anyways………………

Thank you so much for that lovely tour. The house is smaller than I’d thought–in still photos it seems HUGE! Somehow, I like it better. Seems very liveable and so charming. Please do post again.

Edie-it is so beautiful. What a wonderful comfortable home. So glad to hear that Hank is doing well at camp. Our husky can only be off leash in the fenced yard, otherwise she thinks it’s great fun to run away and have us chase her.
Thank you for taking the time to share your home with us. It was ally of work, I’m sure. You can’t stop blogging because blog land would fall apart without you.

Hugs,
Ruth

Hi Edie – Fun to see how you are in person! 

Love your house.   Can you come and help me?  I’m live in Boise, Idaho.  You could go to a Boise State game. lol.

My parents have a lake house and would love to find your “go jump in the lake” source.  Perfect for Christmas for them!

Thanks so much! Jennifer

We rescued a 5 year old dog two summers ago and sent him away for obedience school (aka “doggy boot camp”), too.  We live in Nashville and used a place in Fairview, TN.  I kid you not, he came back a NEW DOG.  I know you pup will have equally amazing results. 

Enjoy your beautiful new house!

Thank YOU for sharing your home and heart with us. I have enjoyed it. Even though your home is new, it looks homey, comfortable and definitely looks like it has evolved over time. Personally, I think that is quite an accomplishment. :) Okay, now I feel like going and “fluffing” my home. ;)

It takes a lot to completely open up your home for all to see.  Of course, it’s beautiful, and lovely, but what I really love was it was alive.  The girls in the background, working away, the bread, half eaten, the pillows, not 100% perfectly arranged on the couch.  Thank you for being real.  It makes your home so much more magical for all to see.

Glad Hank is doing well!  I know I’ve said it before but your home is just gorgeous.  The cowboy boots in your room made me smile.  :)  And I love how open your kitchen cabinets and pantry are!  Must be motivation to keep everything put away in it’s place…something I don’t do well.  Hahaha!  I’m thinking of going door-less on just a couple of my upper cabinets in my kitchen…can’t do lower cabinets because of the Kiddo…although he would surely have a blast with that!  Thank you for opening your home and your heart to us strangers.  You always give us much food for thought…not just pretty, fluffy design food for thought, but the kind that feeds and encourages our souls.  :)

When anyone asks me where I would like to be when I retire, I always describe a scene just like your deck/porch overlooking the lake.  I can only imagine how wonderful to sit there early in the morning or late in the day and soak up the view.  Your new home is beautiful beyond words and I am so happy that you have been blessed this way, in spite of all of your heartache with the fire.  Thank you so much for sharing with us.

And personally, I don’t know how you left Hank at a place that doesn’t respect a cute dog bed.  Blasphemy, I tell you.I am attempting your Spicy Tomato Soup recipe this weekend.  I will let you know how the vegetarian version turns out.

Wow, I’m so thankful that I saw a picture of your living room on Pinterest. I read about your fire so long ago and never heard what happened (I can’t keep my blog reading organized sometimes). Enjoy your new beautiful home! BTW, we too are addicted to the Artisan bread books. And, I’m going to guess the music is Delta Spirit?

Hi, Edie –

I discovered your blog about two years ago. We are a home-school family, too (in Texas, sister!!), and like you I’m a mama with eccentric tastes. Kindred spirits!!! So love, love, love your spiritual insights. Your journey is an inspiration I’ve shared with my sister and others.   

I’d so enjoy to see your home tour, but I can’t connect through your blog. Is it on you tube, and can it be accessed directly through you-tube?

Thanks so much.
Dainah

Hi Edie!
Not sure if you got my message a bit ago, so I am trying again (at your suggestion).  Firstly, your home and spirit are lovely; you can feel the love and kindness right through the computer screen :)  I was wondering if you could share where you purchased your round table in the kitchen?  I have been searching for one like it and can’t seem to find anything I like.  Yours looks fabulous!  Also, thanks for sharing your ADD stories…I can truly relate as I sit here at 10pm typing away looking at a pile of laundry that needs to be folded! :)  FYI my vice is coffee…coffee….coffee! ;)
Take Care and thank you for sharing….
Marley M.

Your new home is lovely, as are you. Building is a process that you live with day and night until it’s over. We have built three….but no more. Losing your home to a fire must be awful….due to the memories. I wish you all the best as you make new memories in your new nest. Sheila from KY
