About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children. We live in a cosy terraced house on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in England which we are slowly renovating and making home. I have a passion for crochet and colour and love to share my creative journey. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world x

Your his & her shopping experience made me laugh - my husband breaks out in a cold sweat when we approach certain shops! Very often he stays outside & lets me get on with it - fine by me!;)


Good choice on the pillow case front. DG stuff never ever fades and you cannot beat the colours. I have bought it like other people by CK stuff. I have quite a few duvet covers that are always well reduced in the sales. It is just so cheerful. I hope they survive the recession. They are doing free P&P at the moment not that I have ordered anything but they seem to have lots of stuff on sale - very worrying - it is the one place I would find difficult to live without inspiration wise. I love collecting their little magazine/leaflet thingys. Tricia Guild's books make good eye candy too Lucy and they should be available by order from your Library.

Have a good week.

Love Emma xxxxx


Your blog is like my morning coffee. When I wake up and check bloglines I always hope that you have posted so I can start my day off cheerful. I love all your photos. That plate is wonderful. I love how you have decorated your home. I am all about color too and I get so much inspiration from you. :)


Really great photos! Love the colours... so keep posting :)


What a cheerful post and a lovely home you have. I love to snuggle up in my pj's.


Such bright loveliness as always, Lucy!


And a lovely weekend it was! Oh how I wish I had a source for Cath Kidston over here. I think I read somewhere that she will be offering more here soon. I sure hope so, or maybe I don't, considering how much I might spend. :~)


I love your slippers: they are so cute!!! x


lovely post, gorgeous colours, and so needed when mostly outside is faded to grey.

I love your home - it looks so, well, homely, beautiful, but not in a 'too perfect to relax' way but welcoming and comfortable. Hope you can see what I mean, I can't express it very clearly, just wished mine looked like it. x


what lucky, lucky find on those gorgeous DG pillowcases! they look like they were made especially to come home with you and befriend all your lovely crochet blankets.

thanks for a great dose of monday morning color therapy! now i must head out to the supermarket in search of some daffodils...


Love those mary janes!!!!

And I needed the bright cheerful colors of the daffodils and your home decoration on this very bleak grey and very sad day for me....



Did you make those gorgeous slippers??
Looks like a great day out, I do agree that it's best to put husband in safe area whilst you go play. They all have a tendancy to go into sweats when wallet is called for.
Looking forward to next episode

What pretty photos! And your house looks immaculate! I refuse to believe that it isn't always this perfect!!!!! ;o)


I just love all the colour on your blog.


What wonderful pictures to look at first thing in the morning. Glad to hear the weekend went well. The cards are so nice that if they were mine I would be tempted to put them in frames and hang them to look at all the time. :) I have quite the collection of single cards because of that little idea. Love the pillow cases. I'm not sure if I would be as brave as you with putting those colors in my room. I stick to the warm and cozy, snug as a bug theme. It does make it hard to get out of the bed some mornings. LOL!

Thanks for sharing your bright, cheery, spunky world with us again Luce! You are FAB! ;)


Those pillowcases were meant to be yours. I try to leave hubby at home with the offspring. None of them are shoppers. But at least that way, he has no inkling what I spent!


More bright colours from the Attic24...sun glasses on...lovely. I've never been to Boundary Mill, it looks great. See you got some CK mugs. Is there a CK outlet there I wonder?


Lovely bright cheerful colours...as always!! I love the fact you're always in your PJ's ...glad it's not just me!!
Love the cards :)


your home is so lovely and cozy...
glad you had a great weekend..


ooh very jealous of gorgeous DG pillowcaes, lovely, lovely, lovely X


Today is the 1st time I stumbled across your blog and I am hooked, I have spent most of the day reading the posts and getting frustrated when my poorly daughter wanted another drink/DVD/sandwich/box of tissues. I came on to the site to try to learn how to crochet the lovely flowers, but found so much more. Our trip to London that is already planned for this weekend is going to have a few detours, maybe I will have to ditch the boys and just take my daughter to some of the lovely places you have told us about. Thank you x


As a long time crocheter and crochet lover -I thoroughly enjoyed seeing all of the crochet touches in your photos. You have inspired me to add more crochet to my home decor. Your site is charming and I am so happy to have visited!

Hurry up and finish your flower patch blanket Lucy - I can't wait to see it! All these little sneak previews are sending me into a frenzy of anticipation.

A true tonic, Lucy. Other blogs (mine included) look dull and dreary in comparison!
Our guilty shopping secret is the Designer Outlet Centre in Ashford - husband buys T-shirts and endless underpants from Ralph Lauren and Gap while I buy bargain-basement Levis, coloured card for crafty stuff and (until it shut down) the odd piece of cut-price Le Creuset. To make it a truly "Trashford" day we then head to nearby Little Chef for fry up lunch. Couldn't do it more than every few months ... but we both have to admit we enjoy it when we do....
And congratulations on your Husband Management Skills! I could do with a few lessons...
xx Elspeth


What a lovely bright post,I have resisted buying a bunch of daffodils so far but I think that might change now.
