Lovely walk home ,thank you.Where are the canal boats? Also where did you get the hand soap from, not that I'm going to be able to find it here.... I'm planning to start on some crocheting hexagons after being inspired by your blog, thanks.

I've stumbled across your blog through another blog..funny how that happens. I'm enjoying all the eye candy. Thanks for sharing. I'll be back.


I'd like to live with you.

Can I bring my kids?


Just stopping by to say I love reading your blog. (new to me) Just found you! SO HAPPY to pop by!
Greetings from sunny California,


That's a lot of loving in one day! :)

Boy, you get to walk past the beautiful boats on a canal? What great inspiration.

Lucy I had to come by and tell you that I learned to crochet yesterday (via youtube tutorials !) and then this morning used your flower instructions and made my first flower and am so happy and pleased so thank you as you (and Hen) were the reason I wanted to crochet in the first place!!!

such lovely colours, it's such a grey day here, you've cheered me up no end. xx


Nice day, great photography!!


Lucy, I'm sitting here with tears streaming down my face. You don't know how much I needed to read that post yesterday and today to remind me of all the wonderful simple pleasures in life.
Lots of love to you all.

Your today is very loveable indeed. Reading you and now writing my own blog does really focus my mind on appreciating the little bits of life that make up the happy moments. Looks like you had a beautiful day up there.

May I ask, where did you get your necklace - I know you said it was hand-made, but was that by you (and if so, will you be making some for your Etsy shop -please ??) - i just adore it!

Looking forward to hearing more about the teatowel quilt -that's a gorgeous pile you have there. x x

elizabeth of course

so much light!!
Those tiny animals are so incredibly cute, I just had to stare for a minute. What are those funny boats on the water?

Hi, Lucy,
I love reading your posts. You add life and color to the English countryside. Haven't been "over 'ome" in many years. Your lovely pics and gorgeous crochet are truly inspiring! Sharon (U.S.A....U.S.A.)


Have you posted your iced buns recipe? They look so YUMMY!!!


What a beautiful and cheery day!


Your blog is a little highlight to my day. I love to sneak a peak to see what you have to share. The photos are just beautiful. Thank you for taking the time to share with us...

Elspeth Thompson

Thanks for the link, Lucy - I have been enjoying teh colour, optimism and spirit of your blog whenever I can for a while now, so thanks for prompting me to tell you so!
It's too late now to say much more than this - but I did SO love the post about LM's buns... bless him.

Such beautiful and cheery colors! I've given you an award. You can find it at my blog.

I enjoy reading here everyday. Such a bright spot in my day.


Hi Lucy, once again, your pics are fantastic and your happy attitude so refreshing. Tell me about the boats in the water along your walk home today. Since I live in the US, I'm not familiar with those and am curious. Almost as curious as seeing the transformation of your bathroom. Thanks for just being you. I join with the others who say "you make my day". xox


so much beauty.
