Home. On Purpose

by Edie Wadsworth on April 30, 2013

This indeed, was a home, – home, -a word that George had never yet known a meaning for; and a belief in God, and trust in His providence, began to encircle his heart, as, with a golden cloud of protection and confidence, dark, misanthropic, pining, atheistic doubts, and fierce despair, melted away before the light […]

On Purpose”.  This is a year long series where we live our lives with purpose, focusing on a different area each […]

Why I

When God was merciful, when He revealed Jesus Christ to us as our Brother, when He won our hearts by His love, this was the beginning of our instruction in divine love.  When God was merciful to us, we learned to be merciful with our brother.  When we received forgiveness instead of judgement, we, too, […]

April has been full of fun cleaning and organizing projects. I cleaned out my closet and my kitchen cupboards/open shelving  and hope to attack the workroom this weekend.

living with marble countertops

This post has been a long time coming.  So many of you have asked me if I love the marble, after living with it for awhile. It’s complicated, okay.  Real things always are. And let me say that EVERYBODY warned me against marble.  I didn’t think the counter top guy was gonna sell it to […]

{ditto} DIY

by Edie Wadsworth on April 22, 2013


Have you ever looked at home decorating magazine or watched a design show on HGTV and wished you could make your own rooms look that good? Design is not always about expertise or even an unlimited budget, but more about taking inspiration and making it work for your own space. That is the philosophy behind […]


Living with Open Shelving, the pros and cons

by Edie Wadsworth on April 18, 2013

I’ve been singing the praises of open shelving for years.  When I remodeled my first kitchen and painted my lower cabinets turquoise, I took off upper doors to give my kitchen the look of open shelving, without having to start from scratch. Then, I remodeled the original lake kitchen and added a plethora of open […]

BHG digital {my house}

by Edie Wadsworth on April 16, 2013

Darlene informed me  this weekend that there was digital version of my BHG’s story that can be downloaded onto mobile devices. I was so happy because a) there was a photo of all the kids that was not shown in the magazine and b) several of you asked me if I had extra copies, which […]

 I’m sitting here in my maxi dress—which apparently I was too lazy to exchange for yoga pants today—with 3 day hair and not a stitch of make-up, watching the Masters with Stevie and barely able to hold my eyes open. I have not been worth a dime today, dear ones.  And by that I mean, […]


Weekend with Friends

by Edie Wadsworth on April 12, 2013

There’s been so much going on in my little world and in my little head that I can’t wait to have time to sit down with you and have a proper discussion about it.  As it currently stands, that’ll be in the fall of 2014.  About the time I get around to cleaning out my […]

when doubt rages

by Edie Wadsworth on April 7, 2013

Today is the 2nd Sunday of Easter.  Did you know that Easter isn’t over?  The historic church celebrates Easter until Pentecost, which is 50 days after Resurrection Sunday.  So, there are 7 Sundays in Easter and after living with the church year calendar for awhile, you start to remember  what’s coming.  That and the fact […]
