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

Fantastic! You lucky things. I have always hankered after a vw camper and now I want one all over again! Cannot wait to see what you do with it! :)


I am SOOOOOOOO excited for you! Does she have a name? She needs an ace name I think :D and she's going to look totally ace in a beautiful (stylecraft!) granny blanket and ooooooh so MANY pretty things!


oh my giddy aunt! i guessed right!!!!!!
remember in my last comment?
it's just so right for you and your lovely family
enjoy! :o)

I cannot wait to see what you do with that caravan.




i'm skipping about in great excitement for you here :o)
can't wait to see what you do with your lovely new travelling home xoxoxoxoxoxox


Until I got to the end of your post, I was thinking, "Those people should just give that caravan to Lucy because by the looks of it, it's hers." Then I read that you indeed have your own blank canvas to color!!! Hooray!

Inga Helene

Oh, so nice! I just can barely imagine what you'll do with it. Lots of granny stuff will be going on in here, I guess.

Congrats,and I'm so looking forward to seeing what you'll be up to!!!!



Congrats! Now you just need to give her a name. Enjoy her(even if she looks a little tired and has some not so nice design choices inside).


Oooo jealousy is seething out of every single one of my pores! I can't wait to see what you do with it! It'll be so fantastic!


she looks like the start of a fantastic adventure


Congratulations Lucy on your fabulous purchase!!! As a kid we used to camp in a converted school bus - such good memories!! Can't wait to see the beautiful hooky makeover you give it!!! Many happy years to you and your family holidaying it in! Enjoy your first trip out!!!!

Andi Pants

I can't wait to see how you brighten it up!


Swooooon! I never liked caravans until I came across Happy's vintage one. Do you know her? Check it out here http://happylovesrosie.blogspot.com/2010/05/garden-make-over-done.html In fact, a card company wants to take pictures of it to put on greetings cards. How fab is that? Enjoy !!

Wendy Wager

I guessed it too - although you will have to take my word for that! You will transform that pinky-beige dullness into a transport of delight and we will follow your progress all the way. Brilliant idea x

Mrs Bun

Have a great time now you're taking to the highways and byways. Can't wait to see the banishment of the pink and beige. Bet you'll be planning in your head all weekend.

Have fun Lucy.

that is so truly wonderful. I am beside mysef with jiggety-jig excitement for you! I too love caravans - spent many a holiday in my grandparents as a wee girl - but having one of our own to prettify! Oh my goodness, you have just defined bliss. Like a giant doll's house only so much more satisfying "cause you fit in it! Have a LOVELY time Lucy and I am eagerly awaiting beautiful updates. :-)


I am sure you will be able to turn her into an absolute gem! In fact, I bet you've already started crocheting the granny squares!!


Oh WOW! Lucky Lucy! I can imagine the transformation, but bet you will exceed my imagination. Though where, I beg, where do you find the time?


Oooooh what a gorgeous post !!!
So glad you got time to blog today as I saw your ravelry comment and I've been dying to see your new purchase !!
She will be AmaZing ,caravans are the best!!
Have fun this weekend :0)

My late Dad converted an old community ambulance into a campervan and he and Mam had many, many happy trips away, all over the country. I hope you and your family make many happy memories on your travels too.
