Hi again Lucy,
A little plea- I have been looking back at your blog archives and love the little keyrings you made for the school fair (July 2011). I love doing little things- less room to go wrong and so satisfying to finish. Any chance of having the pattern?
Thanks for all you share- because of your blog I am starting to learn how to crochet.
Hugs, Alison x


Just lovely! LOVE that red jug. It sounds you had a gorgeous weekend. I had a good Sunday but then the weather has been wet since..oh well.


Muffin idea - grated lemon zest and good white choc chips.

Oh Lucy, you make me so homesick. AND, you drink my favourite wine (Marlborough Sav Blanc) from a minnie mouse tumber.....living is Aussieland, that is my favourite wine of the moment, such beautiful photos. thank you for such a wonderful blog.

Really looking forward to seeing Connievan in all her sticker glory!!! How much fun will that be...I'd love to spend a few hours sticking flowers onto a caravan!

Oh what a lovely weekend you had, isn't it great to be able to spend all that time outdoors! Love your great disguise .... child's minnie mouse glass with a little tipple in it!! I'll have to try that one!

Have a super week enjoying the sun, fingers crossed it stays for the bank holidays.

Gorgeous photos Lucy. I, too, find that your blog puts a smile on my face.
Love Carole from Rossendale xxxx


I've been reading your blog for a couple of years now but I think this is the first time I've said anything. I always look forward to your posts. They always make me smile, and your idea for Connievan made me laugh out loud. I think she'll look beautiful! Lots of photographs please!


Thought you didn't like baking?? You are becoming a baking diva, mmmmmm yummy! I haven't got over poached eggs since the last time you posted about them lol! And I'm going to HAVE to get some asparagus now too. Might have to do asparagus with poached eggs.


Great weekendy post - looking forward to seeing how Connievan becomes 'Lucyfied' for your wonderful family trips away.
Have a lovely week.


What happy, colourful photos! And lovely to see you in what looks like a pretty summery top, I am envious as we head to winter in New Zealand. :-)


what a lovely sunshiney post! Great news about Connievan too :)


Hi Lucy Just read the latest installments of 'Lucy lLiving' it beats Conrty Living any day. I do so look forward to catching up with you. Thanks Lucy. Love meg.
Ps a new task will be to find out about Pay pals which I have never used so that i can treat you to coffee and cake.


Sunshine and outdoorsiness...loverly. I still have a way to go on my ripple, but was wondering if you plan on giving it any edging, or just leaving it as it? I am so glad that Connievan is coming to live nearby, it will make trips in her so much easier for all of you...and of course, make it much much easier for you to glam her up!


Got to love a drop of Savignon Blanc on a hot day - any day in fact! I always check out your blog first - so bright and cheery and it always makes me smile :) :) :) :)


I look forward to reading your blog each day. I enjoyed your photos, so colorful. The colors in your ripple are very pretty too!

Raspberry & white chocolate chip - I agree, this sounds really delicious!


Cupcakes AND blueberry muffins on one weekend?? Can I move in?


Outside is the best place to be on a lovely day. I am anxiously awaiting your ripple ta-day as I am following your colour pattern. Where did you end up hanging your cute caravan picture that you commissioned recently? Hope you continue to have sunny, warm weather.


Hi Lucy-just to say I tried your way of cooking asparagus and my how tasty it was,everyone loved it so thanks for that great simple idea-
Have a look at my attempt here-


Oh my the sav ... a kiwi drop?? How wonderful


Oh you are SO ready for Summer!!! :) Loving the ripples lying on your red chair - they look so inviting.
Do you have to replace your geraniums every year because of the cold? I ask because I've never had to do that - living where I do. They just get a prune and off they go again.
It must be wonderful having the connie van close by! Looking forward to seeing more of the "prettying".

The first thing I do when I log on to check facebook is to see if you have posted a blog....and yay, you have....I love your photo's and the way colour is always there....and also I have noticed also along with Lisa ( who posted above ) your red and white spotted crotchet hook ). In your next blog could you let us know where you bought it from....Val in Australia...x
ps...I am learning to crochet from your summer garden granny square....getting there!


Looks like you had a lovely weekend too! Can't wait to see what all you do with Connievan :)


If you can find it in the UK, you should try Geisen Marlborough Sauv Blanc - it's even better! In Australia it's not too expensive, although goodness knows if they export to your side of the world and, if so, how they price it. But definitely worth a try if you come past it!
