The Nutcracker 2011

by Edie Wadsworth on December 18, 2011

I’m not sure I can convey the sheer joy of watching my ballerinas perform this weekend in a  wonderful and classic rendition of  The Nutcracker.   I was teary eyed more than not.  And I breathed a huge sigh of relief when Emme finished her last dance as Clara.   This stuff is hard on […]

Thanksgiving 2011

by Edie Wadsworth on November 27, 2011

Thanksgiving in the new house was perfect in every way!   The weather was mild enough that the young adults sat on the porch to eat and then enjoyed the fireplace afterwards. Caiti was a huge help this year and did lots of cooking and helping! (Thank you sissy) I have the most wonderful family […]


Give Thanks

by Edie Wadsworth on November 22, 2011


So, how long have you and I been going steady? Like 3 years, I think? Well, except for that time you broke up with me when I posted about Loretta Lynn. And okay, the mullet made you a little uncomfortable.   And the bluegrass. But all and all, we’re pretty solid, you and I.  I […]


Bohemian (Rhapsody) Thanksgiving Tablescape

by Edie Wadsworth on November 20, 2011

I always host Thanksgiving for my family. I love hosting Thanksgiving. It’s one of my favorite days. I’m scrambling this year because it dawned on me (2 days ago) that I don’t have all my serving platters anymore. Or rather, it dawned on me  that I don’t have ANY serving platters anymore.  Blasted fire. Nor […]


Our Christmas Journey 2010

by Edie Wadsworth on December 13, 2010

I’ve joined The Nester’s Christmas Tour both in 2009 and in 2008. I love that girl.  She  gives me a goal for finishing my decorating. I haven’t finished decorating yet, despite her promptings but I’ve decided to tell you about my Christmas journey anyways. This year has been different for me.    This is my first […]

Skirted Table Dessert Buffet

by Edie Wadsworth on November 23, 2010

dessert buffet

I’m not gonna lie, it’s hard to host anything at your house when you homeschool. There are books and #2 pencils and notebook paper e.very.where. This buffet that I’ve had for many years has recently become our locker. It holds all our books and is usually hideous like this. But without our beloved school room, […]

Thanksgiving Tabletop Tips

by Edie Wadsworth on November 24, 2009


Every year I swoon at the Pottery Barn catalogue and their many varied and luscious Thanksgiving tabletops. Have you ever calculated how much money it would cost to do a table exactly like theirs? A lot of money. An obscene amount of money. So, every year I set out to make my tables comfortable, fresh, […]
