True hospitality isn’t about inviting people into your perfect home;  it’s about inviting them into your imperfect heart. I was so blessed this weekend to have some wonderful friends come to visit.  Darlene and her beautiful family, including her newest little addition, Georgia Lu, came for a quick visit for breakfast.  I had just begun […]

by Edie Wadsworth on December 3, 2013


I’ve had my eye on this project for at least 3 years.  Finally, my bedazzled mannequin dreams have come true.  I want one in every room, much to Stevie’s pain and suffering. The first thing you should know about this project is—it’s prickly.  The second thing you should know is that your mannequin must be […]

Bean Station Thanksgivin 2013

by Edie Wadsworth on November 29, 2013


It was a beautiful day, in every way. But, if you could see my house right now, you’d understand why I can’t bear to walk into the kitchen and am ignoring it all, in favor of enjoying my coffee with some mocha cake, all the while contemplating hiring a service to come wash the rest […]

Well.  It’s Monday and despite the fact that I always have grand plans for my Thanksgiving preparations, I’m way behind.  As in, I’m on Saturday’s list behind.  My first round of company arrives tomorrow and I can tell one thing for sure—my guest room is ready and I’m thinking of moving in there myself.  It’s […]


The Best Quiche Lorraine {South of the Mason-Dixon}

by Edie Wadsworth on November 22, 2013


Y’all. I know I’m melodramatic.  I know I overstate everything.  Whatever. This is the best quiche I’ve ever eaten.  You don’t even know. And if you tell me you don’t like quiche, I will tell you to come to my house and then I’ll sit you down by the cozy fire, while I  make this […]

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup via lifeingrace

Okay, I’m just gonna give it to you straight.  This Roasted Butternut Squash soup did not change my life like the Pumpkin Chipotle Barley one.  But you can’t eat that every week, can you? And fall needs you to embrace butternut squash.  It’s like sweet potatoes, minus the sweet and the potatoes.  So, I did what […]
