Happy Happy Day of Birth Lucy! Thank you for sharing your wonderful life in your blog posts! I look forward to each and every one!!! Wishing you a blessed year.



Happy Birthday, you wonderful person, you! I was on an airplane yesterday, looking down on all the absolutely stunning yellow, orange and red foliage of central New York. Made my plane phobia almost vanish, I was so enthralled. Autumn can be so painfully gorgeous. :)


Happy Birthday Lucy, I am 6 months behind you, great how you managed to get 4 days of birthday celebrations. Loving your photos - especially when I recognise where they are :-) xx


Happy Birthday lovely lucy, Autumn has been kind to us this year, well until this week at least now it's raining and we've had to put the heating on, I've contented myself though with making some pretty stitchy autumn leaves.


Happy Birthday Lucy. I love the Autumn too. Your writing and photography is enchanting xx

A very Happy Birthday Lucy! I'm a year in front and also think "how did that happen"! Where's my perm gone!! Your autumn photos are just idyllic and you are right about the light, it has a different feel to it but when the sun comes out it makes everything so vibrant. Enjoy the rest of your birthday month!! xx


I so miss my Manchester UK FALL. NOTHING like it..the smells the sights the food..sigh.xoxo❤

Happy birthday Lucy
I have read your blog for ever. I am more of a stitcher than a hooker, but I want to acknowledge your deep sense of gratitude. You always relish the little things in life and find real joy in a fire, flapjack or falling leaves. And that always makes me stop and take stock. Thank you Lucy.


H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y, charming LUCY!!!!
The best is still to come :D

Happy Birthday Lucy. So glad you managed some time with your Husband. As you said numbers are just numbers. I loved Autumn when I lived in England.
Where I live in Central Queensland we do not have a lot of change between seasons, I love the time of year we are celebrating now, spring!! Hope you have caught your breath after Yarndale, it was a truly magnificent event.


I miss the colours of autumn, itt's one of my favourite memories of living in the UK. We don't have the total change here in Perth (Australia not Scotland) although there are pockets of it here and there, and it takes my breath away when I drive past them. Also miss them open fireplaces - they aren't as common here!!!
Happy Birthday


Belated Happy Birthday Lucy - wonderful pics !!


Belated Happy Birthday Lucy! I can highly recommend a royal extension of birthday celebrations. It was my 50th in August I have been having fab events nearly all year including visiting Whitby for the first time. An amazing place. X


Oh my lovely, a beautiful Happy Belated Birthday to you!

So glad you had a wonderful day, and managed to eek it out a little longer! I would love to change my attitude about my birthday, but I just always want to forget them. I'm not worried about age and growing older, but I've had some really horrid events happen in my life around some birthdays, so I think I just sort of want to wash over it. I just need to change how I view them really. I need to take a leaf out of your book!

I have been loving the light in Autumn. Yesterday evening, I was sat at my computer and looked out of the window to low sun on trees, and it was magical and I just thought how beautiful it all was and really how amazing the seasons are. There really is so much beauty in the everyday. xxxxx


I've learnt to appreciate all the seasons, each one has something special and unique about it - the problem is, that the older I get, the quicker they come around. A bit like birthdays... I've given up counting!


Happy Birthday! Your lovely posts are always so uplifting and inspiring. I like Autumn, and it is often very beautiful, but, still...can we live in the perpetual Spring somehow 😊?


Lovely photos and the weather down south in the Midlands has been quite warm, but cold at night!

Don't eat blackberries much later as "the devil has walked over them" - well that is what my Father always said!!
