Lovely pictures as usual. I so love your enthusiasm even for the icy cold weather. It has been ffffreezing down in Buckinghamshire too and I have to say I'm glad to see the back of it. I normally love that kind of weather and it has been very beautiful I admit but with a three week old baby those levels of coldness are just not fun. I would have loved to go out and enjoy the beautiful scenery but we've been snuggled up trying to keep warm. So I've enjoyed your walk pictures today. Love the look of that cute arcade and shop as well. So Christmassy in a really lovely way. Looking forward to seeing the wreath. Fiona x

It's all so lovely Lucy,thanks for sharing!Not much ice here yet,been more like fall still(not complaining).Love the ribbon and flower combo,can't wait for the Ta-Dah!Have a great day!


I know just how you feel, although frozen to the bone I just want to drink in the gorgeous frosty weather. I walk my dogs between 5.30am and 6am every morning and sometimes it is just magical!


Oh my hasn't been cold, but as long as I can wrap up warm I amn more than happy to go exploring and love how the frost clings to the leaves! Oh, I have created some of your flowers to embellish a pair of gloves I have made for a Christmas present ... they really set the gloves off!! Unfortunately I won't be able to blog about the gloves until after Christmas as the friend they are for is a regular reader of my little blog ... I love them so I can't wait to show them off!! xxx


Just found your site .... amazing love your craft work, and finally can join granny squares neatly after your great demo.
Pictures are wonderful-

Love your photo's.We have had the same weather here in the north west of England.I know it's freezing but it makes everything so beautiful.I feel like a child again when I wake up and everything is so white with frost.So looking forward to seeing your finished wreath.


Lucy, do you know how I love to read and view your blog? I guess because it is just such a contrast to where I live in Australia. Here it is quite warm and dry. The paddocks are yellow after being harvested and dry. Dust billows up on unsealed roads and we are looking for the beach or a pool to cool off in. Christmas is evident by the increased traffic in town, decorations in the windows and sparkling lights at night. But with daylight saving, it's 9pm before its dark and late to enjoy the beautiful light displays. I also love a bit of hooky but I'm just a beginner. I'm anxiously looking forward to your reveal of the Christmas Wreath. The colours are just amazing. Thank you for sharing your projects, life tid bits and a part of the world that is truly beautiful. Merry Christmas to you and your little family.


Beautiful, Lucy! I am envious, living in the southern hemisphere as we do, of your wintry Christmas. So special.


I love winter too. I love taking pictures of the view from our window. You can see of them here (if you want): http://eefkepeefke.blogspot.nl/2012/12/winterwonderland.html

Little B must be growing so big. Your flowers are really cute-I learned how to make them really cute from your blog-thanks for that.

Beautiful photos Lucy - like you I love being out in such weather though coming indoors afterwards is also very very good! Love you mitts.


Wonderful photos - I too love icicles, but havent seen any as yet this year.



You certainly live in a beautiful place! I've recently come home from a visit in Scotland with also is stunning, but Yorkshire seems equally wonderful.

Looking forward to seeing your wreath.

Wow doesn't it look beautiful when it's freezing cold. Often we are just too busy to look. Sarah. ps please pop over to my blog and check out my guinea pig photos, the hats don't need to be knitted, you could crochet!!!!


I've had so much pleasure since discovering your blog this year and I'm about to embark on some crocheting. Love hearing about and seeing the pics of your part of the world. You wonderfully embrace your winter whereas here in Australia I just endure winter, waiting for the warmer weather to return.

You live in such a beautiful place! Thank you for the lovely pictures. I would love the shop the arcade! I'm looking forward to seeing your wreath. Love, love, love the little flowers with their ribbon tails and dotty buttons! I'm so glad you share these things with us.


So, so jealous of your little part of the world. I am currently sitting here sweltering in Sydney, Australia heat. The only bright point being the squels and giggles of the little people playing in the pool after school. I have never experienced a cold Christmas. For us, its seafood by the mountain, a pavlova with cream and tropical fruit for dessert and then a swim at the beach in the afternoon. I must do a house swap one year. Have a happy Christmas Lucy.


It's lovely how the freezing fog "frosts" everything.

Hubby argued with me (once ;D ) that there was NO such thing as freezing fog. Once!


excited to see your wreath....I remember lovely Christmas-y decorated stores, villages and places while living in Germany as a child. Here in the deep south, they don't decorate as much. Seeing your photos brought back some sweet memories!


I'm happy for you Lucy because it's not easy for a "summer girl" such as yourself to find joy in the cold winter! Icicles and frost definately help. Beautiful pictures!

Teresa Kasner

Hi Lucy.. we haven't had any freezing weather yet, so it's fun to see your frost and icicles! Our Mt. Hood is covered with snow, though and I need to get a photo! I adore the flower with ribbons.. so adorable! You're so imaginative! I just posted some photos of my Christmas decorations - pop over if you have a minute.

Wow! You have me giddy over those wonderful frosty images! So beautiful and refreshing. The wreath looks exciting, too. Happy day to you!


I love how you write your emotions so well on your blog. One can just hear you speaking :-)


I love the Christmas decorations and that shop is just lovely! I can't wait to see the finished wreath :-)

Jane Robinson

Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful pictures. You truly live in a beautiful part of the world. Your climate is a stark contrast to the weather that we are experiencing here in Melbourne. I can't wait to see your finished wreath, the burst of colour is amazing!
