About Me

  • Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children.

How lovely! These sights are simply breathtaking! I wish I had know about your blog when I was doing a watercolor painting last month. I could have used the inspiration.

I love your blog it is the top of my favourites on all our computers, your tutorials are brilliant. But what I would love to know is where did you get your spotty hook, I am drawn to spots like a magpie to shiny things, I have got slightly addicted to crochet and a spotty hook would make my week!

Eu preciso escrever em Português: Que espetáculo! Obrigada pela viagem que você me proporcionou, mesmo que eu não saísse de casa. Tudo lindíssimo. Infelizmente não é possível sentir o perfume de lavanda pelo computador.
I need to write in Portuguese: What a spectacle! Thanks for the trip that you gave me, even if I do not leave the house. Everything beautiful. Unfortunately you can not smell the scent of lavender by the computer.

In the 12th picture down (in the 2nd village) from the beginning of the blog entry -- do you happen to know why the walkway is constructed with the wide stones intermittently on either side of the middle? Does that make sense?

In any case, just thank you, thank you, thank you, for sharing these lovely pictures. So inspirational. Lucky Lucy to have an opportunity to visit.
Just lovely to see.

Hello, Lucy. I´m a spanish woman that loves your blog and your crocheted works. I think that you are very kind and generous by showing us so many tutorials and those pretty photos. I usually take a look at your blog at the end of the day because it relaxes me(sorry if my english is not very well).
Thank you so much.
Love from Spain,
Rocío B.

Breath takingly beautiful!Love all the blues and yellows,makes me want to paint my door a preetty blue :)and the tree of flower pots! WOW love it!The trio of blue pots near the blue shutters..gorgeous and the narrow streets are fascinating(to an American).Thanks Lucy once again for taking us along :)


Dear Lucy, thank you so much for your lovely photo's.It makes me feel a bit homesick. I am a born and bred South African and have lived here my whole life except for two years which I lived in France. I fell in love with the country, especially Provence. I so wish I could go back again, even if it was just for a visit.Thanks for sharing and bringing a bit of sunshine to my day


Love all of the photos! Are you going to share all the lucky people that went with you? I'm anxious to see the project but I know it's coming. Thanks for sharing!!!!!

I will probably never get to Provence but I can enjoy the trip with you. Thanks for posting and for such wonderful pictures. You truly have an eye for color and a gift for photography. And your hooky madness. I am a sticks person myself but love to see what you are creating.




I wish I were there. When I was a teenager we visited France every year but I never truly appreciated how beautiful the villages were. Thank you for brightening my drizzly Thursday.


What a gorgeous part of France! We went to the loire Valley last year March, the villages were not nearly as colorful, well kept and pretty as the ones you went to! the ones we saw looked like they were barely staying together, crumbling apart, grey and very dismal looking! I want to go to Provence now!

Sonia Petitpoint

It was the perfect time to visit Provence : the weather was still wonderful and it was not too crowded. Your photos are gorgeous !


The villages are not just beautiful, they have so much charm in them! I wish so much to be there some day. The streets are so cozy and I can feel the atmosphere from your pictures...thanks for sharing these lovely moments! Anna

Have you ever read something about the international Association of Women in Provence?they meet monthly and have their "pink day":each month they visit a chateau and taste pink wine (rosé).So many chateaux to visit here...endless

Lucy I am looking for you in Great Britain and I find pictures of Provence where I live!what a great surprise.Your vision in full of colours as usual...
thank you

Jane Wolkowski

Thanks for taking me along for the Vacation thru those lovely pics.

I will never see that part of the world but thru those pics and your description of each....well I feel it.!!


Oh what beautiful places, Lucy! I wish I was there with you guys.And oh, I'd love to be in that soap shop, I bet the scents there were divine! You write beautifully as always, and the photos are lovely!


Beautiful pictures. These villages remind me of two near to the coast called Le Castelet and La Cadiere that we used to visit when my Godmother lived in Provence. I so want to go back there.


Hi Lucy, I visited Vaison La Romaine 11 years ago and as your photos loaded up I wondered if you had photographed the house with the wrought iron tree - it was the end of September when I was there and a rosy red apple sat on each hoop. Thanks for allowing me to relive the nice memory!
