Hey, I'm reading YOUR blog back from the beginning, too! I didn't know that was a thing, I thought I was a weirdo. Love your blog, have been a follower for about 3 years. Just finished up a Sunny Log Cabin blanket for my son and fiance as well. Love from Wisconsin on the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Lucy, I've been a fan of yours for some time now but a few days ago I got the idea to go back to the beginning of your blog-had to let you know since you mentioned this in this blog post. :0)Frankly, I wish you would put together a beautiful, full color book of your blog since it feels like a good book reading it! You could keep coming out with a new book every so often- I would definitely buy it. You are a great story-teller and your photos are eye candy.

Hey there Lucy :) I had to comment on this particular blog entry of yours. At the moment, I'm reading your entire blog from March 2008 and have to say, I'm loving every second. I'm also slightly bonkers and am also struck every so often by little things, be it colour, light and shade, a view or a moment.
I had to laugh at this entry about your husband though. Do you know mine says the EXACT same things to me about my photo taking, purchases and silly every day things. I made yorkshire puddings with my roast beef for dinner tonight, and they turned out so perfectly, I had to take a photo.
Got to go keep reading. Hope you see this comment, it's a tad late, lol!

Hello Lucy
Just had to drop by because I whole-heartedly know what you mean by:

"I happened upon a new blog, one that immediately struck a note with me. Don't you love it when that happens? When you find yourself immediately going back to the start of a newly discovered blog and reading the whole damn lot from beginning to end?"

.... just what I am doing with your blog at the moment. A very good friend of mine told me about your blog and we are both addicted. She's already caught up, but I'm still languishing in August 2008! Well, actually, languishing is not the right word - relishing - that's much better! I am a knitter and a crocheter and just LOVE all your wonderful, colourful, items that you've made. Will post again later when I've caught up and introduce myself properly. Hope you see this post as it is 7 months after everyone elses. Much love and respect. SamT

By the way, my husband doesn't really read my blog. He still is a fan of me doing anything I like to do, and finds me very creative. But, he... he doesn't read it (I wish he would, I even wrote some posts for him).
I thought you would find these flowers lovely. And her blog is very interesting too...

Lucy,
I haven't checked in here lately, so I missed this post here (I'm reading it complete later, now baby is awakening). Thanks for the comment on the award! You deserved it. Your blog is full of dedication, good ideas, delightful pictures...

Hello Lucy I hope you and your family had a good weekend. Really enjoy reading your blog. Could you give me some advice - I have been practising crotcheting the last couple of weeks and after seeing yours I would like to start my own ripple blanket - I have a copy of Jan Eatons ripple stitch patterns and thought I would start with Soft Waves on page 19, however Im finding it a big jump from evenings spent practising my crotchet stitches and find it quite difficut to understand the instructions. How did you go about it, any information gratefuly received. Many thanks Lucy

Hi Lucy
I'm so glad that you feel that you have a connection with Emma at Lavender House can't remember how I found her blog but the more I read it the more it reminded me of you! You both have very simalar styles I felt quite cheeky recommending your blog to her but felt you had so much in common it would be a shame for her to miss out on your blog! She's on her jollies at the moment but I'm sure she will be back blogging soon. Funny isn't it me of shabby chic pastel, muted, faded colours lovin is loving your colourful homes more and more mmm think some bright colours are going to creep into some corners of my home soon! Happy, happy weekend to you!!

ps loved reading about your jollies why are my holiday snaps not that good?!

My husband doesn't read my blog either, he knows it makes me happy and sometimes asks if I'm going to photograph something for my blog, but he doesn't get the whole blog thing! Lovely pics as always, I so enjoy reading your blog, it's one of my favourites too.

Sarah

my husband takes most of the pictures for my blog and reads it when I ask him to and thinks I am 'ever so funny' but no, he doesn't 'get' the blogging thing, he's just happy it makes me happy! He glances over at me on the lappie sometimes looking at these blogs of women I have never met but feel I know, like you, Posy, Cherry, Vanessa and Nonnie, and smiles at me as if I am half cracked :-)

long live the domestic, cooking, knitting, sewing, quilting, making and musing bloggers of the world!

Jennifer

Lucy - I absolutley love your blog. I would rate it up there with my 3 top blogs and I read alot of them! I too LOVE color for my house and you are such an inspiration. Although I do not have a blog my husband too does NOT understand why I would want to look at other people's life. I can't fathom what he is talking about it makes me so happy. I live in Boise Idaho and so you are making a gal in the states very far away from you want to get up in the morning to see what you have posted! Some sunshine in my day and so inspiring! Thank you! Jennifer

claire

Oh my goodness I've missed so many posts! Just had a catch up on your hols and the pics look gorgeous! Sounds like you had a wonderful time! Glad you are back and posting such detailed posts, it feels like I've been on hols with you...lol. Claire x

Love the view! Cherrie

I too get up at 6.30 to make my husbands sandwiches! I wish we had a thunderstorm here. The weather people have threatened it for over a week. It needs a good downpour to clear the air. I will have to go and check out the Lavenderhouse blog. Oh yes, I love the red and white spotty jug and congratulations on the awards. I bet there will be many more of those in the pipeline!

Only me...just to let you know some details about the flowery pvc cloth, it came from Dunelm Mill, they have a bunch of cheap and cheerful designs all for £2.99 per metre (so £5.98 for my table).
They have more tasteful Dotty pvc in various colours too, but it costs a more tasteful £6.99 per metre. Sadly you cannot get this particular flowery design online, but if you go to the website there is a store locator

Hi Lucy, Yep, hubbies just don't get this blog lark do they...or "vintage"...or flowery tablecloths. Love yours...please tell me, did you purchase it in Bridport as I love it so much? Talking of "vintage" I was reading somebody's blog the other day and her husband doesn't say shabby chic he says shabby sh*t (made me laugh so much that one...bless me, I don't get out much!). I haven't forgot that I must do the tag thingie, will do it v. soon. I took a quick peek via the link to Lavenderhouse's blog..looks like a good one and will be settling down to read that one. Lovely photos again. Hope your day is sunny. (not like Devon) Kathyx
