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, stay at home Mum with three young children. We live in a 100year old Victorian house in the North of England which we are slowly renovating, and here I spend my days :: mothering, decorating, crocheting, baking, sewing, crafting and gardening. I hope you enjoy your peek into my colourful little world. xxxx

Connievan is going to look beautiful with those fab tins! I actually have laundry basket envy right now! I hate doing laundry, but i'm sure a lovely basket like that would make the job more pleasurable.

I wish you happy days in your connievan. I'm sure it will be joyfull and happy. Nice purchases, it will make your connievan even more home.
Last saturday I had a talk with my youngest son, about the summers we spend, me and my 2 sons, in our caravan. It was talking like'mom, and do you remember....' Joy ful memories!!
And tonight I started following your instructions making a granny stripe blanket, during the pauses I had while doing a shift in the hospital. Now I have to learn posting photo's.
I'm using a kind of DK weight wool, I bought it from a finnish dyer who dyes wool from Finn sheep with natural dyes, most of it which she collects herself. I love those colours. And I love the colours from your acrylic yarn too.

Have happy days, Lucy. Love, Gerda

Hope you have a wonderful time.
Take care

Have a fantastic time this week!

Enjoy your holiday!

Connievan will be the best dressed on the site!! Have fun x

Lisha

Oooh I love your tins, they are a work of art in themselves. I love old tins especially with a little red on them.

As for the laundry, my philosophy at the moment is wash, dry, tip.....wash, dry tip...(on the spare bed that is). It has become a mountain and will eventually be sorted, just don't have time at the moment. At least they're clean.

I am also loving your granny stripe blanket for Connivan. I hope you have a lovely holiday and the sun shines for you.

I totally understand about the coathangers, they are very special indeed, hope you enjoy hanging your pretty clothes on them ...

Helen

Well done you! Even your laundry basket looks attic 24 ish. The coat hangers are just perfect for Connievan, she will be the most stylish van, very chic. All the colours are so summery and make me smile every time I look.

Bairbre Aine

Oh my gosh, love those wee coat hangers.
May I ask, how will you bag up the lavender, in the crocheted hearts and flowers?
Do you use muslin bags or?
I hope you have a lovely trip to the coast.
cheers :)

Karin

Wow! You found really lovely items.
Have a lovely week at the seaside!

Wow, isn't it great to be so excited about stuff? Thanks a lot for the granny stripes tuto-post. I will most definitely give them a go because they seem very very 'up my street'. Mind you I have, since yesterday, officially started on my first blankie!!!! Squeal! I'm sure this will be a multi-year project (my arms, wrists and hands are v. sore after yesterday so I need to give them some rest... but surely I must be able to manage 1 square a day? or two :-). I love all the multi-coloured lovelyness in your pics. Have a very nice day and good luck with all the folding and ironing.

Ooooh I love the coat hangers, what beautiful colours and so very you Lucy. I have exactly the same first aid tin, bought at a collector's market but yours is in much better nick than mine!

Have a super holiday, looking forward to seeing all your lovely pictures when you return. The weather is supposed to be warming up again soon too.

Have a wonderful time with all your family. Love the coat hangers especially - hearts and flowers sound so cute! And it looks like you will get some decent sunshinyness too. Have fun!

The Muse of The Day

Connievan is being "nested" - and I am loving the fact that I am privy to the process. I too share your sentiments about the hangers,when I use mine I think about who used them before me and I wonder if they a hung a beautiful frock on it and what it may have looked like.

Yvonne

Such delight to have your own Connievan to buy and make beautiful things for. Enjoy! Have a great holiday, greetings from Denmark.
