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

beautiful pictures - the money tree is quite amazing - hope you get your wish!


Wow! you are so lucky to live near such beauty.
We visited Yorkshire for a holiday once (and got engaged there) and it is sooo beautiful - even in the middle of February!

Goodness what amazing piccis of the money tree, I have heard of these but never seen one. So pleased you have joined in my giveaway!


Beautiful photos Lucy. Does the money tree wishes work if you look at it through a blog? I sincerely hope so! x


Looking at your photos I feel like I'm there...it is lovely at Bolton Abbey. We love the farm too and of course the steam trains!! We go on the Santa train each year... S and S will be 7 on Sunday (bday party at Bolton Abbey each year), I don't think they'll want Santa train this year... :(


That does look a lovely spot.

Love the money tree too. Do you think it works by proxy, y'know, if I asked you to put a coin in for me...?!

And do you think needing somewhere lovely for a coffee and cake is a sign of middle age? Whenever I plan an outing with a friend, that is top on our list of requirements!



nice, really nice place, ... even more beautiful from my office chair,... I need some holydays!

This was a wonderful visit to a place I will probably never actually see. It's so fun to journey along with blog friends and see their world and their life. Thanks for sharing!


Hello Lucy!

Thank you so much to share and to tell us about these marvellous places :)
It is very important to listen and get the sugestions of the people who lives in the places; I do not like only to read the tourists guides, sometimes we can loose something beautiful :)
I will take note of your sugestions :) My husband will love it too :) We like walking in beautiful countrysides :)
As I told you before, we were in York (we liked very much) but we want to come back to see the countryside :) Now, it will be easier and funnier :)



What a wonderful day Luce! How lovely to be by the river and listen to the water, to see all of the trees and other bits of nature. My kind of day!



wow, you live in such a beautiful area!


How incredibly beautiful! Someday that's my dream...to visit some of these special little treasures of the world...yep, someday. But til then, I love seeing all your beautiful photos, thanks again for sharing.


you are lucky! what a magnificent place!


Lucy ~it looks like you all had a lovely day out ~ the scenery is stunning and your photographs are beautiful as always! Thanks for sharing :O)


Vicki - I'm saving up!!! LOL

It is on my life's list of things to do befor I expire, to visit the land of my English ancestors. It's been 4 years since I got to check one off, when I went to the Grand Canyon in arizona. I'm looong over due. What lovely pics Lucy!! You are blessed to live so near such splendor and beauty!

some day.......


I was on the Yorkshire Moors last year when just such a cloud approached us. Unfortunatley, we were about 4 miles from our car. They travel fast those Yorkshire clouds don't they?!


I was at Bolton Abbey last week and visited nearly all the places you've mentioned. It is beautiful there,you're so lucky to have it on your doorstep!


Wow, that scenary is magnificent! Thanks for sharing!


That's a great photo of the Priory against the sky, I love blue skies with clouds behind striking buildings.

By the way, does the money tree have real present-time money in it? Or is it old money? Or is it not actual currency at all but just round flat pieces of metal? So many questions I know, sorry xxxx


The scenery is wonderful but your writing is delightful too ! You are very talented in telling stories.

My day has been so enriched by this post. Thank you for sharing your amazing photographs. They are truely remarkable. I would love to come across the pond to see these wonders some day. I love the magic tree too! Thanks Lucy, you're the best.
