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

Fabulous - so simple yet so clever and what a transformation!!



Fabulous Sweetie! I want one!!


What a lovely way to upcycle something! It's beautiful!


How lovely! It reminds me of a little lady twirling in her beautiful girly skirt on a bright summer day. The others are right, it suits you and your sunny style to a T. Bravo.


Oooh, I want one!

Alex Mason

Hey Lucie - lamp looks great, wasn't sure from the first photo if it was gonna work out well but it did!

Can I ask what glue you used to stick the decopatch to the lamp? Is it fire retardent?


Fantabulous! What a great redo! I love it! Love it! LOVE IT! You did a great job.


It is a very precious lamp, now.It's unique. Like you, dear Lucy!

French Knots

That looks fab, what a super idea! I wonder if I could decopatch my boring coloured car......!?


It's like a lovely flouncy skirt.


The makeover is quite lovely and cheery!

Lucy, I just wanted to thank you for sharing your world with me. I am a homeschooling mom of five kids. Sometimes the hectic and crazy world of my kids overwhelms me. You always brighten my day. I love your words, your glimpses of life, and your talent. Whenever, I am down your pictures and projects cheer me up or inspire me. Thank you. I found your site this summer when teaching my kids how to crochet. You make it so easy for us all. Thank you. LOVE THE LAMPSHADE. Hope you get out of mount clutter. I always do but it seems to be a magic mountain that keeps popping back up.-Jen


My jaw dropped! It. Is. SO. BEAUTIFUL. I want one too! Congratulations!! I'm in love with it too. As I am most of your creations. Your blog is my favorite out of the many I visit. I love your writing style and photos too.

You have really out done yourself on this one. It's perfect for the Attic24 and full of love. I still don't know where you are finding the time right now to craft. AMAZING....

I have a fun post just up. Head to the beach with me.

Cheers -

Kate - The Garden Bell


Your lampshade is gorgeous!
