Hi Lucy, I may not be looking in the right place, but where is the list of colours for the stripes in the Harbour cal? I have got to the sixth row at the end of the lipstick colour and have realised i dint know what’s next. Thanks in advance, Anita xx


As always your post are enjoyable. Like the others I’m patiently waiting for a winter garland Ta Da! Keep sharing your everyday posts. You have a gift for words about sharing life’s moments. And you recognize how important it is to savor them. Thank you for sharing! I hope you realize how vital you are to all of us in blog world. You inspire, brighten, encourage, teach and enrich our lives. It’s hard for me to put it all into words. I see how your blog and words have contributed to my life. From spying nature pretties on my walks to crocheting beautiful blankets in winter. Thank you!


What a stunning sunrise! I’m so glad you’re able to enjoy your Winter months (it’s my fav time of year although we don’t get Winters as cold, dark and miserable as yours). How are your Little People? What are they all up to now? Don’t want to pry but a general overview/update? Thank you for your lovely posts. Hugs x


I just wanted to mention I read every one of your lovely posts, I just rarely comment because you are on a different blogging platform than me (I am on Wordpress) and it is tedious to comment. I just wanted to mention I think your blog posts and images are so wonderful!

Hi Lucy! I agree with the others, your posts are a respite from these stressful times we live in. They transport me to a calm, beautiful place. Thank you.


good article



Your lunch bowl looks amazing - I need to make more effort with my lunches. I can never think of something I fancy that doesn't involve bread but now you've given me ideas! The coffee looks good too - I'm off to meet a friend for coffee this morning who for one reason and another I haven't seen in person for three years so lots to catch up on.


Hello! What a cozy post! I share your love of hibernation during these winter months. I homeschool our youngest, so I rarely have to leave the comfort of our little home. We just returned from a little trip to the shore, and I enjoyed it but could not wait to get home. Love your views. Thank you for sharing!


Thanks Lucy for another lovely post. I so enjoy reading them & seeing some of you gorgeous photos. I usually see these first thing in the morning, so it's a great forerunner to my day. Keep warm, stay safe & hugs from down under.

reading your blog makes me happy. And your blankets are my therapy. Thank you

I love reading your posts and you sound like a hygge fan, cosy and comforting and i do agree we need to find things in the seasons we can enjoy. The speed off which folk are happy to remove christmas decorations and whilst i agree i feel that twinkly lights and candles, even if they are battery operated are things we need to brighten our days/evenings, crochet blankets included :)


I love winter too. Summers have become too long and hot ( here in the South of Italy) since some years.
Thank you Lucy, I can’t explain how posts like this one make me feel very good.


Dear Lucy, several years ago (long after it was published) I discovered your White Hooky Snowflakes pattern when I was looking for something different to put in my Christmas cards. Everyone loved them, and I thought you might enjoy including some in your winter garland.

I've followed you ever since, and really enjoy your posts; that little bit of a glimpse into your daily life and thoughts is so charming! And the photos bring it all to life for me. Thank you for continuing to see the goodness even in darkness and cold, and for sharing it with us ~


I made a wintry garland last year all inspired by your other garlands and wreaths. Maybe I can give back some inspiration: https://www.ravelry.com/projects/Agameda/winterdeko

Sorry Lucy natürlich...

Liebe Lucy

Das ist mein erster Kommentar ever den ich schreibe! Jetzt muss es sein!
Das Morgen Bild in deinem letzten Beitrag
Ist so besonders😌
Ich liebe die Bäume wenn sie ohne Blätter stehen und im Hintergrund so ein fantastischer Himmel... Vielen Dank dafür dass du mich teilhaben lässt an der wunderschönen Landschaft in der du lebst!
Ich nehme auch alle derartigen augenscheinlichen Geschenke immer wahr wenn ich unterwegs bin!
Deine Kamindeko ist immer eine Freude in
den roten Kerzenhalter mit den birds bin ich verliebt hätte ich auch gerne... LG Birgit


I love to change my space with the seasons too, this year I bought two beautiful winter snow scene photos from a very talented local artist and have them on my wall at the moment, my garland is hearts as it's approaching valentines, I too need one for winter so I will be watching this space to see what you come up with Lucy. Enjoy your week. xx


I was just thinking yesterday how much I love and value the normal days. They have been in short supply here lately and I am missing them. I love your pile of Observer's books, the Birds' Eggs one is absolutely brilliant, my eldest has it (the birdwatcher) and the life-size colour egg pictures are fantastic. He bought me the British Grasses, Sedges and Rushes for my birthday once as well, which I love. Glad you are enjoying winter, it really is a lovely season, and plays its part in making summer feel all the more glorious I think. CJ xx


Ahhh beautiful as ever 😁
Cant wait to see your garland and glad to see you embracing winter.


Oooh, yes please to some hookey snowdrops! My favourite flower - it shows me that even if not quite spring yet, we're in the second half of winter, and spring *is* coming!
Love your pace of life, so happy that you have that and enjoy it.


Oh that picture 'Morning Light' would be a superb embroidery project. As a long term crocheter, I'm looking forward to your future imaginings come to life. Best wishes, Val
