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

Hi Lucy! My name is Wanda Russo, live in Argentina and have two kids of 5 and 1 year old. I just wanted to tell you I loooove your blog. Everyday when I get work I check to see if you´ve posted anything and your pictures and home brighten my day :)
Thank you very much for sharing!!!


Happy New Year to you Lucy! If you're bonkers, then there's an awful lot of us who must be too! Thank you for sharing your world with us. It's a lovely, colourful, happy place to be. xxxxx


Not bonkers at all. Not even a teeny tiny bit. All these things you share with us through your blog-- the yummy looking food, comforting mugs of coffee, gorgeous crocheted blankets and bags, feet propped up and happy in their stripey socks-- these are the things in life that make it worthwhile.

I think one is better off by far if something as simple as a pair of colorful socks makes them truly happy.

Happy 2010 to you, Lucy. Thanks for making 2009 a brighter place for so many of us.


*has her hand up coz she must be bonkers for looking at the kooky teatowels*

☯happy new year to you Lucy and family☯


I enjoy reading and seeing your pictures as much as you enjoy writing!!! Happy New Year, Lucy! Keep up the GREAT blogging!


It's not bonkers at all! It's good to know that there are other folk out there who, like me, enjoy the simple things in life. It makes for a happy and contented life. Well I think so anyway. Our three children are all in their twenties now and live and work in other parts of the country or abroad. But, do you know what.... they still all pile home for Christmas and that makes me feel all warm and cosy inside.
Wiashing you a very happy and homely NEW YEAR! Ros


Who needs magazines when there are beautiful images like this shared by others who welcome us into their homes and share a bit of themselves each and every day! It truly is an amazing experience and wonderful adventure. Blessings to you and yours in 2010. Tammy


Although i havent left a comment for a long long time, i just wanted to wish you a happy 2010, and thank you for your wonderful inspirational photos and posts, i check you out nearly every day and i have to say it is always a joy to see what you have posted for the day. I wish you much happiness for your new arrivel and selfishly i hope that you will still find time in letting us know more about your life. Thank you so much :))))


Happy New Year to you and your family Lucy!
Thank you so much for letting us share in the wonderful 'ordinariness' of your life - your blog always leaves me with a warm glow. Thanks to seeing all of your beautiful projects I am now intent upon learning to crochet in 2010. I yearn for a granny square throw to adorn my settee!

Happy New Year to you too, Lucy! This blog has been one of my highlights this year. You are full of life, creativity, and I LOVE it that you enjoy the little things in life (a stack of towels, tea, and cereal). The color and richness in all of those things can be inspiring. You have inspired me to buy more fun socks and connect w/ my quirky side. It is amazing that you did all those projects this year. I LOve it! Can't wait to hear more from you, especially as a new little one enters the picture. Have a very Merry New Year and many blessings.


I recently stumbled across your blog and I love it. I've only learned to crochet in the past year and your blog has given me so many ideas! Looking forward to lots more crochet inspiration from you!
Happy New Year from NYC!

Thank you so much for sharing your world with us - I've now been an avid follower for nearly a year and you have inspired so much creativity in me and more importantly made me think about and appreciate my own little world more!! I wish you and your family (plus lovely bump)all the best for this exciting new decade - much love Xxx


Love your blog and have enjoyed it for well over a year now. Not bonkers at all to revel in the comforts and pleasures of one's home and life in general. Your blog is a riot of colour, but it's also gentle and serene. Keep it up!

Wishing you and your growing family the happiest Happy New Year!


I'm very happy to hear how much you love doing your blog! I enjoy it so very much and to know how you enjoy it makes it even that much better. Thank you so much for the sharing and inspiration and all you do. It can't be easy, I'm sure it take a lot of time to do this. A great big thank you!!!


Having found your "Bonkers stuff" only very recently I'm loving it.

Sort of do "Bonkers stuff" on my blog too.

Mousy Brown

So many little moments of colour, beauty and creativity - so many moments that could be overlooked but give great pleasure to many when they are captured and shared! Thank you for that sharing - look forward to next years glimpses - Happy New Year :)


Happy New Year! I love the colors and textures of the photos - so please don't stop taking pictures of the extraordinary ordinary things. I do have a question - what is the title/author of the book on your nightstand? It looks interesting.
