Sewing machines, fake greens and fried dough

by Edie Wadsworth on October 24, 2009

The sale was supposed to start at 8am. By 7:45, 1/3 of my stuff was gone. Just like that. No time to mourn. No time to reminisce. Just gone. And by 11:30, we were packing up a small load for Goodwill and headed to the local fall festival. It was nearly the perfect yard sale. […]


It’s my Yard Sale and I’ll cry if I want to……..

by Edie Wadsworth on October 23, 2009

disclaimer: neither the weeping small child nor the wonderful knitted hat are for sale I found this {and many other wonderful pictures} the other day when I was preparing for the yard sale. And I feel a little like this today. Now I remember why I don’t like having yard sales—-it’s a lot of work […]


So you don’t start calling me Fatty McButter Pants…..

by Edie Wadsworth on October 13, 2009

…….I’m trying to get back into my fitness routine. Summer stress and difficult goodbyes has put a bit of a damper on my running and bit of muffin top on my yoga pants. Nothing motivates me more than a fresh playlist on my iPod. Here’s what currently playing: 1. Long Way Home :: Nora Jones […]


Lisa Leonard Designs and a Giveaway

Since starting this blog in May 2008, checking my email has been much more fun. Y’all leave me the sweetest messages and ask me the funniest questions. I love getting email from you and try my darn-well best to reply to each one—and then I get lost in the archives of your blogs to try […]

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, […]

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. […]

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 […]
