Summer’s Dawn

by Edie Wadsworth on June 2, 2014

DIY Large Photo Prints

DIY large photo prints

DIY large photo prints?  Sort of.  I suppose all in all, this isn’t so much of a Do It Yourself project as it is a Let Hobby Lobby Do It For You project.  But, let’s not argue over semantics.  I had to coordinate this project and it’s pretty cheap— so I’m calling it a DIY. […]

How to Host a French-Inspired Soiree

by Edie Wadsworth on March 4, 2013

Y’all.  This was a fun one, I ain’t gonna lie. But then, I love parties.  I like to party like it’s 1999.  Except I don’t anymore.  Because that was before Pinterest.  And who wants to party without the help of Pinterest?  Not me. And I like to plan for them plenty of time in advance […]

by Edie Wadsworth on February 19, 2013

I love my dining table. Like LOVE it.  It’s an Eye-talian made table that I bought at O.P. Jenkins after our house fire. (I can’t find any more specific information than that). This is one place I decided not to skimp. I’m  all about a Goodwill rehab project but I wanted a good, sturdy table. […]
