Beautiful! I absolutely love living in a place that actually has autumn. It's my favorite!

Vanessa Grant

Hi Lucy! I don't write to you often, in fact, this is only my second time I think. :) However, OH how I adore your blog!! I've looked forward to viewing your entries for 2, 2 1/2 years now! I would know you, even if I saw you in a crowded place! :) Every blog post you write up and share makes me happy! Your sweet vacations, mini or long. Your parenting, friendship, Yarndale, and creative ways are so inspiring!!

I've been working on your crochet bag for a few months now. Ha ha It turned out much bigger than I anticipated. I hadn't crocheted in a few years, so it's been a bit harder to stay focused, round after round. Lol I chose colors of the rainbow, because I want it (the bag) to remind me of you! I love, love your color palette!! :)

Thank you for sharing all that you do! I share your little corner of the world with many, many people!! Keep doing what you're doing, Lucy! It looks marvelous on you! :)

Be blessed! :) Vanessa Grant from Eugene, Oregon, USA :)


I really love the different wreaths! I have always loved the colours of autumn, and the smoky smell you often get, but summer is my favourite season, so to me autumn means that summer is definitely over. It's a bit hard not to feel down when the weather turns and the evenings are dark. But this post has reminded me of the good things of autumn.


I just looked back over your monthly mosaics for the past autumn and winter months. I think we all have lots of good things to look forward to.

I'd love to make one of these I just don't know where it would go? Where do you put them?

Love the one with toadstools, it could double up for Christmas with some added knitted holly, now I'm thinking about how you could make the one wreath and "dress it" each season...


Such beautiful colours. Autumn is my favourite season and I so yearn for it when I see these gorgeous Autumn posts, as we are now in Spring in Australia - and heading into Summer, which is my least favourite season. Still, I guess I shouldn't wish my life away, and try to make the most of each season in its turn; but I will file these away in my mind's eye, for when Autumn makes its welcomed return

I absolutely love British magazines and subscribe to quite a few. The picture you show of the tablescape with the books, pottery, plaid blanket, etc. I have cut out and framed! It just speaks to me so much and I kept opening to that page to look at it. Decided to frame it and stand it on my sewing table where I can see it all through the autumn season.

What a wonderful selection of Autumnal wreaths. Simply super, Lucy!


I always buy Country Living during the autumn and winter months - perfect for cosying up with in front of the fire...

Foliage & berries for me, so lovely isn't it? X


Beautiful wreaths, now I am feeling all warm and cosy again, despite the crazy weather.


British Country Living is my favorite magazine - I meant to ask you in your last post what mag you were reading. It always makes me feel so warm and cozy (we spell it with a "z" over here in the States", especially the Fall issues. Love that wreath with the little mushrooms and pinecones - I think my white front door needs one like that!



New word at the end of this blog post to describe the sort of gorgeous Autumnal days this week.


Hi lucy, lovely photos. I hope the weather is better with you today, it has been sunny here in the Midlands today. Hope you are having a lovely weekend. X


Pretty! Pretty! Pretty!

Now I need some hot apple cider!
I'm so inspired by the pom pom wreath!


Love your selection of wreaths, beautiful colours. Crisp Autumn days are my favourite time of the year.

I always feel like I want to reach out and hold all the colour of autumn before it disappears, now we can look at autumn wreaths and make it last longer :-). I love the sunflowers, fiery leaves, mini toadstools, pompoms sooo beautiful. I would like to grow some small gourds next year and dot them all over our home, I bought some yesterday and the smallest one I could find is standing outside the door of my daughter's dollhouse looking v cute.

Lovely- really inspiring! Thanks Lucy!
