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

Oh Lucy, what a beautifully decorated tree and house:0)
Such colours:0)
I too adore childish colourful things, and totally understand where you're coming from.
But they keep you young don't they ;0)
Love your decorations that you recently made hanging up on your tree too, will have to buy the pattern from you for next year. I know that if I had done them this year i would never have got all my presents made ;0)
Love little B's hands with those lights, honestly, when you post about him he makes me all broody..!
Have a super special Christmas with your brood Lucy.

Lovely Lucy,

What a gloriously happy Christmas your decorating must bring your family, because I just love looking at your pictures and hearing of adventures at Attic 24. It looks so cosy, wonderful and full of smiles. Wishing you and the peeps a fantastically magical Christmas, full of special family memories.



Lovely post as usual and good to know it's not just me that's running later than ever this year! I agree about the coloured lights too. My first husband always insisted on white lights and a two colour colour theme throughout...BORING!! I got my own way for a few years but luckily hubby2b loves colour and quite happily allows me to indulge my childish side. Hurrah!!!

I just love the fact that your decorations are all random and made by your children! so much more meaningful! I am a disney freak myself and lots of my decorations are of a theme too! You can see a pic of my cross stitched tigger decoration on my blog! http://redsmudgeramblings.blogspot.com/

Have a wonderful christmas!


Pretty please can I come and spend Christmas at number 24 this year? Yes? Ok good I will see you at 11am sharp on the 25th!
Your tree is everything that I hope mine will be next year. I'm all about Christmas 2011. I can't wait!

Love Heather xxxxxxxxx

Have a wonderful Christmas!

YOur home looks lovely. Have a very happy Christmas and New Year and thanks for sharing your world x


Just beautiful! Don't worry, Lucy, sounds like you are waaay ahead of me this year in the Christmas preparations. My dear dad just passed on the eleventh of this month and had been hospitalized for two weeks prior to that, so you can imagine how frantically I am trying to pull Christmas together! However, never, never, too busy to take time to have a visit with you! Have a Merry, Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

I love your decorations - the tree with the coloured lights took me right back to my childhood and my grandparent's tree- it looked just the same - I have such strong memories I can smell the floor polish they used and hear the rustle of the tissue paper crowns from the crackers. Thanks for sharing Lucy!

Darlene Garner

Your decorations are absolutely beautiful, and you make me feel like I'm right there with you, enjoying them to the fullest. Thank you for sharing and Merry Christmas to you and your family.


So so so happy! I'm smiling ear to ear reading this! Enjoy your time and moments with your family!

Erin Mowry

I love your blog and all of the colorful handmade ornaments in your recent posts! Merry Christmas!!

Oh, my dear, be a little late. Stretch out Christmas a bit for everyone! Your house looks wonderful joyful and full of so many handmade things. I love those snowflake garlands. We have given in to a fake tree and I love it. i don't miss this cold jaunts out into the Minnesota deep freeze at all.

A very Merry Christmas to you!
