4 Gifts to Give Your Mantel {#loveyourmantel}

by Edie Wadsworth on February 17, 2014


I have mantels on the brain, so please bear with me! (Also, I’m working on tracing down the links on all the photos, which is harder than it looks!) via Emily Henderson, the reigning queen of all things mantel and decorating and baby snuggling. We know what to get the bride, but have you heard […]


Eclectic Fall Mantel

by Edie Wadsworth on September 18, 2013


I’ve been trying over the past few years to decorate for the seasons from stuff I already own or can clip from my yard.  I just collect things I love over time and try to find ways to use them in a unique way. After our house fire, I didn’t go out and replace all […]

I’ve been focusing on “Home” this month and let me remind you that if you’ve been doing any home projects—organizing, redecorating, cooking, gardening, etc—that you’d like to share, please link up tomorrow for “Home. On Purpose”.  This is a year long series where we live our lives with purpose, focusing on a different area each […]

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 […]

My Paint Colors

by Edie Wadsworth on August 25, 2012

Because this well could be the most asked question in recent times, I thought it was high time I put all the paint colors in one post.  Here’s the only glitch.  I can’t remember the paint color of the girls’ vanity and I keep forgetting to call and ask my cabinet maker.  I’ll do it, […]


The Sultry Master

by Edie Wadsworth on July 10, 2012


I recently updated my About page, in case you’re interested! Until I can decide which of the 356 pictures to show you from our Fourth of July Fest, I thought I’d show you some progress in my bedroom. I’m finally getting furniture and some art work in this room—which means it’s starting to have that […]

Around the House, summer edition

by Edie Wadsworth on June 7, 2012

Did I mention I love summer? I’m working on a post to tell you all about what we’re doing this summer but in case I never finish it, you should know that I love summer with all my southern soul. In fact, this house is really at its peak in summer. It’s a summer house […]


Decorating with Plants

by Edie Wadsworth on April 23, 2012

My dear friend and blogging mentor the Nester is hosting a great party today featuring plants in the home.  I LOVE my house plants and am so excited to participate. I confess that I’m a little lazy with house plants.  I do great for awhile until I don’t.  I need house plants that are a […]


31 Days|Day 3 Defining my Vision

by Edie Wadsworth on October 3, 2011

When you’re building a house or remodeling your kitchen or rearranging your furniture in your living room, it helps to have a vision.   I learned a lot about vision while working with Darlene from Fieldstone Hill Design. She’s got oodles of posts on finding and clarifying and sticking to your vision. Give your style […]


Master Bedroom Vision Board

by Edie Wadsworth on July 31, 2011

While I was camping-it-up in MN, I got a fun little email surprise. Darlene finished my vision board for the master. This is my take on restrained, sultry, and symmetric.   There are some yummy pieces here and I may not be able to swing them all. But I love the feel of this room. […]


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, […]

Queen Chair Before/After and a Fair Little Brunch

by Edie Wadsworth on August 14, 2010

I’ve been wanting to re-upholster this chair since I first bought it on clearance at T.J.Maxx. There was a rip in the upholstery which I disguised for 5 years with a throw. Finally, I painted it (a bright yellow from Valspar, whose name I’ve currently forgotten) and sent it to be recovered with a darling […]


Before/After: Painted Furniture

by Edie Wadsworth on July 31, 2010

I’ve had this piece of furniture since the beginning of time and why on earth I haven’t painted it before now, I do not know. You probably have this piece of furniture too, don’t you? Or at least a side table or armoire like it? Well, something told me it was time. Time to give […]
