Blue eyes crying………

by Edie Wadsworth on July 22, 2009

I received a comment on a post recently that said, “Your life looks almost perfect”. And I am so grateful that most of the time, it feels almost perfect—-except for when my heart is broken. Like today, when the tears would not stop flowing. And even as I type these words, I get that same […]

Grace Notes

by Edie Wadsworth on July 17, 2009

1. First, let me start with this post, which was written months ago, but has left my mind reeling today. I’ve been thinking about this topic alot and I’m sure I’ll feel the need to write about it soon. Ann, author of the blog Holy Experience, is a beautiful crafter of words, and has a […]


Peacock Blue and Painting

by Edie Wadsworth on July 15, 2009

I’m a walking fandeck of paint colors this morning. I have white on my arms, blue in my hair and stain on my nails. My LR walls are white-ish and my trim is just a ‘hair’ darker than that. I love the subtle contrast. I’ve been pouring through my beloved stack of Cottage Living Magazines […]


My way of saying ‘bird watching’ or ‘linky love’.   Please name this post.   You must use the term ‘grace’ in your entry.   I will use this post a few times a month to show you great stuff I’ve found on the internet, but you must help me name it.   Come on, […]


Blog business and please don’t ‘rate my space’

by Edie Wadsworth on June 15, 2009

Also, I’m planning to host a ‘Painted Patio Furniture’ Party next Monday so be working on your projects. If you won’t have enough time to finish, just link up and show […]


3 things

by Edie Wadsworth on May 27, 2009


This post has 3 clearly defined objectives. 1.  I wanted to make sure you saw my new button.  Isn’t she lovely?  She’s located at the bottom of the page. 2.    Because it makes me feel like I’m giving an important presentation: I wanted to use the ‘block quote’ box; which one would use for […]


3 things

by Edie Wadsworth on May 12, 2009

1. In lieu of painting my living room (and risking vehement verbal outbursts from my family), I’ve been working on a wall of frames sorta like this:I’ll show you later today. You’re gonna love it. I just know it. 2. Darcy, from Lifewithmy3boybarians and Graphically Designing, is tweaking my site for me as we speak. […]


Because Painted Wood is Pretty

by Edie Wadsworth on April 30, 2009

As promised, here are a few of my favorites from the “Because Painted Wood is Pretty” linky party.  To see my new kitchen and all of the links, go here. This is my friend Kelly’s house. She lives in a beautiful house in the historic district of town and if I could go take these […]


Retro Cottage Kitchen is STILL at it……

by Edie Wadsworth on April 29, 2009

Y’all have no idea how much fun this Retro Cottage Kitchen has been for me.   First, just the fun of watching it all come together, then the fun of the big reveal and the linky party.  I’m exhausted!  But I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your […]

1. What is your faith/denomination?  We belong to the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod—-ie. the conservative ‘branch’ of the Lutheran church.   My husband grew up Lutheran while I journeyed through fundamentalism and then pop American evangelism before embracing Lutheran doctrine and practice.  I often blog about my journey of faith in Christ.  I recently wrote […]


He is Risen!

by Edie Wadsworth on April 12, 2009

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth shall be able to separate us from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Rom.8:29 He is risen!  He is risen indeed!

I’ve been thinking……….

by Edie Wadsworth on March 31, 2009

Ever have one of those days or weeks where you ‘re just lost inside your own dreamy head?  And you can’t sleep or remember the last 3 pages of the book you just read?  And you eat but you’re not satified?  Nothings’ wrong but nothings’ quite right either.  A weird sort of holding pattern where […]


On your mark, get set, write……

by Edie Wadsworth on March 13, 2009

This computer screen, with all manner of half finished posts, is taunting me.   I think this ‘no comments’ thing is messin’ with my head.  First, I notice that I’m a little ‘detached’ from blog world.   Not in a bad way, but just, well, detached.  Then I notice that I sit in front of […]
