Dear Dear Lucy,
Now I finally know what I will do with all of the jam jars I have been saving! You always know how to inspire me. Have fun with your house guests. I'm sure you are the perfect Hostess!


its all lovely as always. love your tea lights. You would love paper bag tealights amongst your flowers. Paper bag, brown or white, 1/4 filled with sand, tealight candle plopped into the sand, roll the top of the bag down a little like you roll up your sleeves, light it, that's it! We put them all around the garden, they don't catch on fire, and the wax drips into the sand! Very cute.


Hello Lucy, I love your blog, and read it very regularly. Your sense of colour, and humour is fantastic. Which leads to my question, would you consider joining a quilting bee I'm thinking of setting up? Info here: http://clairesmakeanddo.blogspot.com/2009/07/quilt-front.html
I know you'd be a great member!
Thank you for your time, Claire


Your relationship with your Bossy calendar makes me giggle every month!
You're right though, it does have a point this month ...and joy of joys we finally have a table AND chairs for outside ...better get off and invite some friends round... hope you have a great time with yours too


Beautiful pictures! I love your idea with the jars, I save those too; now I can use them for something!

Lovely and inspiring. This is such a beautiful collection of ideas. It was a pleasure to visit and view. I don't want to leave you.


i live in southern california, usa. i am having house guests in august. i WILL COPY your candles and menu to use while they are here. many thanks for the tips. my garden is already colorful, and i have fairy lights up, but i cannot wait to make my jar candles. and the yummy menu after a hike to the beach or in the canyon will be perfect. many thanks! jkj


I just adore all the pretty photos you have on your site! :)

One thing I love about summer is all the beautiful flowers in bloom!



Dear Lucie! You just gave me several wonderful ideas for Summertime decorating in my living room and I thank you so much!! Your blog is just the best; I was in such a gloomy funk and now I'm so much cheerier. Thank you for being a bright light!!


I really do appreciate reading your blog ! It is always a quite relaxing time, bringing me optimistic thoughts...
I wish you a nice time with your guests and a sweet summer time.
Best regards...


I love the way you look at life Lucy. Have a lovely time with your guests, they are so lucky to be visiting you.


Oooh love your candle jars- just right for a lazy, balmy summer's eve!

Hi Lucy,

I always read and look at those inspiring things and think 'that'd be really good'. I love that you actually DO them.

I always have plans to eat outside with a pretty table setting like yours, but with our unpredictable weather they often get scuppered!
July will whizz by with all the end of term fun.


Have been on a very busy and very hot school trip to the seaside today and it has been lovely to read your blog again (before i rush to drop off at cubs!)It has given me a lovely 5 minutes to chill and relax.


The little table candles you made are brilliant! I love that you tied the wisps of lemon-thyme with the ribbon! I will have to give this a try. Thanks so much for the inspiration :)


Deliziose le piccole lanterne, brava Lucy!


love this one! those jars made me think of a project i saw on craftster the other day. take a peek, you'll LOVE these: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=297863.0

aren't they lovely? i've got to get my hands on more jars!


Lucy ~ I love those little jam jar tea lights they are so very pretty ~ simple but very, very effective. You always share such beautiful ideas with us and give me lots of inspiration ~ Thank you :O)


Beautifully inspiring post as usual. Out to do some snippity snipping myself now!


Hi Lucy!
Your new project is so lovely and romantic...your guests are very lucky!
If you like courgette flowers...please have a look at my recipe!


I just love your blog! Love all the pictures and the delightful way you describe where you live. I have always wanted to visit England and until I can do that, I am there by just reading of your day to day activities! Thank you for that.
