From my kitchen— on July 4th

by Edie Wadsworth on July 4, 2009

We interrupt the regularly scheduled series—-which I shall certainly not finish by Monday—to bring you a few dynamite ideas for the Fourth of Juuuly.   That’s how we say it in the South.  Juuuu-ly.    With an emphasis on the ‘Ju’.  And I’ll just confess this right now, I don’t have a whole lot of […]

Today is June 24th and I’m…..

by Edie Wadsworth on June 24, 2009

….moving things around…..creating spaces that inspire me and cleaning up dust bunnies in the process.  The ones I can see…..in my bedroom….and the ones I often forget….in my heart.   I’m thinking about my life and finding so many reasons to be thankful.   I’m worrying…..about Taylor and ‘the boys’ taking their 10 day tour  …..in […]

Father’s Day Weekend

by Edie Wadsworth on June 21, 2009

I love holidays.   All of them.   And you can bet your bottom dollar that holidays will find us ‘hunkered down’ at the ranch (ie. suburban home on a cul de sac), cooking all manner of yummy treats, and taking full advantage of family time. Father’s Day is an especially fun one because it […]

by Edie Wadsworth on June 3, 2009

Guess what happens when strawberries are fresh….and children are bored….and days are long?First, we read chapter 2 of The Hobbit aloud. Those little guys eat a lot. So then we get hungry and make a little homeade strawberry sugary magic. And then make toast and bagels and peanut butter sandwiches to spread it on.What’s better […]

Project Graduation

by Edie Wadsworth on May 18, 2009

Want to know what I did this weekend?   I did what I do best.  I redecorranged—that’s a technical term for ‘redecorating by rearranging what you already have’.    I gave this room a makeover a few years ago for my daughter Caiti and we have both loved it so!  It has such a relaxing, artsy, […]

The Fall

by Edie Wadsworth on May 8, 2009

I don’t know if I’ve ever told you about this place. A magical little sanctuary that Stevie labored countless months and years over. A quaint little cottage that he had built for us in the middle of beautiful mountainous country, with a spring fed pond he researched and designed and personally stocked with all kinds […]

Prom Night and fighting back tears……

by Edie Wadsworth on April 19, 2009

I cried silent tears at least half the way home from Cincinnati today. I know it should be a fun day. A day filled with joy. And it would be…..if  this weren’t another ‘last’.   So, I listened to Matt Kearney sing ‘Breathe In, Breathe Out’…… and I sighed heavy and remembered how blessed I […]

Silhouettes

by Edie Wadsworth on March 29, 2009
