Lovely pictures! I can smell autumn when I look to it.

Wow Lucy, what a lovely garland you've made. I absolutely love it!
And those cute pumpkins, they are adorable. Do you have a pattern of those too?
Thank you for sharing this all!


I’m really looking forward to that Garland. So cute! I decorated my mantle yesterday. Home grown pumpkins and butternut squash spilled on the hearth and artificial pumpkins, gourds and fall leaves on the mantel. It’s too early where I live in S. California to find changing leaves and fall goodness. Autumn’s glory usually displays in December. I just mix the natural with the artificial and enjoy the season! I’m waiting patiently for the woodland blanket reveal....well semi patiently!


Nailed it indeed ! Another deliciously seasonal creation :)) x

LOVE it! I found a blue jay feather the other day and was thrilled to add it to my own collection of feathers. I love how you've added a few feathers with the berries. I have mini pumpkins all over my living room, to be so small they really do big much enjoyment. I look forward to seeing the finished autumn mantel.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


Lucy whenever I look at your blog I can feel my seratonin levels rising - your use of colour and creativity never fail to inspire! Another gorgeous post full of autumnal inspiration, I shall look forward to your new patterns. Thank you for your generosity.

Another lovely autumnal post. I too have a collection of old bottles, picked up over many years & used frequently for odd flowers & other bits. I also pick up feathers, and misplaced them in our last move, but a few months ago picked up a "wedge-tailed eagle" feather & it's large & beautiful. I keep thinking about giving leaves & flowers a try, but so far it hasn't happened. Thanks for your great posts & take care.


I never pick things/cut them or even pick them off the ground to bring home because I always think it is prohibited as belonging to either a private owner or the council. Is that not correct? Also I guess I find it best to leave things in nature where they will be enjoyed by many and may have a longer natural life, or be seeded and bear fruit.


Hi Lucy,
Thanks so much for this post. The anticipation of a new project(even small ones) is half the joy. I've been following you for several years and I think your tutorials are the easiest to understand. Your colors always inspire me. I love your photo walks through your neighborhood. Bless you & keep on inspiring all of us. Sue


Lucy, Thankyou once again for sharing the wonderful photos of your home with your beautiful creations. I visit Attic 24 everyday just to see what you generously share. Love all the colours for your Autumn garland. Looking forward to seeing it finished.


Love seeing all your gorgeous decorations. They really do bring on the holiday mood - whatever the season my be. Yummy scents are so important too. Looking forward to your finished garland post tomorrow. Thanks for sharing, as always.


Beautiful indeed. In that 6th photo, the little pumpkins make me think of sea urchins... a thought to put away for next summer, maybe? or if you have some of the Lagoon left over... ;-)

Thank you, thank you Lucy for the beautiful Autumn colours you have shown in this blog. I have lived in Australia since the mid 60's, and miss the change of seasons. I live on the coast in Central Queensland and we do not have such changes of seasons. So thank you the beautiful blog. 😊🇦🇺


All that creative power <3 fond of it. That kitty of you must be the sweetest ever. Found my fall decoration stripped by my Girl. She drank the water, yuk. I'm looking out for that tutorial xxx

Never enough time to do everything but would love to! I walk along our lovely Belgian Prom in Menai Bridge every day and find lots of lovely bits ....there is also Church Island which is a dream fir my lovely Margo, a Wells Terrier i.e. Half Parsons Jack Russell and other half Tibetan Terrier, a totally lovely combination. Margo ,on a lead on the Island ,is absolutely fascinated by the rabbits! Lots of teazels ready for Christmas and beautiful berries. Lucy thank you for your lovely blogs...cheer up the darkest of days with colours galore!


You are soooo good to us Lucy. I live in a retirement flat now and I think most of my fellow residents think I'm a bit potty as nobody else has conkers etc on a 'nature table' nor an assortment of random seasonal crocheted items on display! I don't care! I've just got two sticks out (for a change) and knitted a little Pudsey for Children-in-Need. Thanks Luce. xx


The autumn crochet looks divine, can't wait to see the finished garland. Lots of feathers here as well, along with a couple of bulrushes that have seen better days. I like those little vintage glass bottles as well, I have a tiny one with a lid filled with vintage pen nibs. As a (very amateur) calligrapher I like to imagine who wrote with them originally. Your mantel is looking gorgeous, very cosy and welcoming. I really must venture out and pick some bits for mine and for the kitchen windowsill. CJ xx


Everything you make is so beautiful! You have such an eye for colour and design. Thank you for generously sharing your creations with us.

Angela Martin

So looking forward to seeing the finished Autumn garland. You are so clever.

Teresa Kasner

I love all your autumnal crochets.. I can't wait to see the garland all done! I made one of the little pumpkins you shared.. made the little tendril.. but where is the pattern for the cute little leaf? I tried to figure out one on my own but to no avail. I will be making more of these! Especially your striped ones which will be next. Perfect for my Thanksgiving tableaux! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


LOVE LOVE LOVE all the gorgeous colours in this blog, Lucy..

Would love to have a go at making some of your wonderful creations..

Thanking you, as ever

I love your little jars. I don't have any old ones just interesting jars from the grocery store. One trick I did learn about removing the sticky residue after you get most of the label off is to spread some peanut butter on it, let it sit for awhile and it should all come off. So if anyone else has that problem just buy the cheap peanut butter!
One of the things I have kept from the summer is a hummingbird nest that had fallen out of our tree. It didn't look like it had ever been used and it is a little
piece of perfection. I have it tucked away because I don't want it out collecting dust, I seem to have collected volumes of it too! I need to find some place to display it.
Beautiful photos as always. Keep enjoying your Autumn.


So inspiring, makes me want to go out foraging and decorate our hearth. Thank you xx

Such beautifull photos, Lucy, and lovely Autumn crochet settings. You have certainly set the mood for keeping cosy in the cooler weather. Thank you for always being so inspiring especially with colour. Your posts always lift my spirits.
