You have such a lovely colorful house. Hoping all your pinecone wishes come true.

Merry Christmas.

What a simple and wonderful arrangement. I had been feeling the stresses of the season, but after reading your blog today, I now feel more relaxed and more Christmassy! Thanks for your thoughts. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

Me too. Lovely wishes for you.

Just love the fresh greenery and twigs in the jug with the little red stars. So sweet and simple.


Merry Christmas Lucy and family!

Thank you for brightening my year with your yummy colours and all things crochet! I am thinking of you tucked up in Attic24 with swirling snow as we celebrate Christmas in Australia (it's going to be about 26C here).

Cheers - Joolz

What a lovely celebration. Enjoy your holidays together all cozy in your hooky home.


Dear Lucy,
Another beautiful and endearing post from you. Thank you for adding colour and shiny thought bubbles to my day.


It is so fun to hear of your fun, winter wonderland type of days!! i live in Texas and at the moment we are at about 25c!!! My husband is running around in short pants and we both had our bathing suits on earlier today cleaning up the backyard after a quick dip in the hot(warm) tub!! it just doesn't feel like the Christmas season. Thank you for sharing a little part of your wintry, Christmasy season with all of us!! Merry Christmas to you and yours!!!

I love that you marked the winter solstice with your children and I like your centerpiece. Natural is the way to go.

Dear Lucy, I just wanted to thank you for being so inspirational. Since starting to read your blog in September, I have rediscovered craft. I've been crocheting every day, making Christmas presents for family and decorations for the house. My husband has noticed a significant positive change in my general mood and disposition. Thank You! : )
I would like to send you and your family lots of good wishes from the colonies. xxxx


Lovely post Lucy! You sound wonderful and more relaxed. Many wishes for a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. AND I hope your wish comes true! ox Robin❤

YOu have encouraged me to venture into crocheting realms I had thought beyond me, for that I thank you, Following your pregnancy was a great time and Little B is a welcome addition to the blog. happy Holidays to you and yours.


It's all downhill 'til summer now Lucy! Happy new year;) xxx


Lovely Lucy, I wish I could have done similar, Im still in the tired hazy baby days Im running out of time for eveything! How I miss sleep! Next year though Im really going to try and live by the seasons and celebrate all the old traditions and feast days! hope you have a lovely Christmas! Fliss xxx


How sweet. I love the idea of throwing pine cones into the fire and making a wish. I love hearing all your stories about your family. Very lovely.


I live in the US, I know you all have shorter winter days than we do. Our day was 9 hours and 43 minutes long today. How long was yours?

Vicki Porter

Hi Lucy
Thank you so much. Your blog makes my heart so happy. Hearing you talk about your little family with so much love is really lovely.Thank you for all you do. Vicki


A lovely day, thanks for showing all your glowing photos. This is a good time of year for making wishes, I hope all of yours come true :-)


Beautiful pictures as always :) what a lovely day you had! We just had Summer Solstice- although with everyone in warm clothes and snow (!!) on the Alps you wouldn't think it was Summer!


Lovely! I do think it is important to honour these ancient festivals and to remember our pagan heritage. That aside, the return of longer days is worth celebrating!


Sounds like a charming way to start your holidays! Have a MERRY MERRY Christmas, Lucy - and family! God bless you all!


what a beautiful post. Lovely pictures too.


Lovely post, Lucy. Your home is glowing with warmth and love! xx


I'd just like to say thank you. I taught myself to crochet a granny square this year because of you and I've always wanted to do that.
Thank you very much
Happy Holidays
