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

Sooo beautiful Lucy!!!! I'm thinking of having a go at a gumdrop wreath - here's the link
Thank you for sharing!!! Have a lovely xmas!!!


Totally loving your decorations - puts mine to shame!!! But where oh where did you get the strips for your paper chains? I've been looking for something similar but can't find them anywhere! Have a wonderful Christmas.


Those mini pom poms look like so much fun! I love that first picture.

We have no decorations this year for various reasons and I'm not feeling very festivt yet so it was nice to see your beautiful decorations! Your house must look fabulous with all those lovely things around!


So much fun! :D


Ooooooh this is just the inspiration I need. I have snowflakes - unstrung, sitting there, very insignificant. What a great way to display them. xx


One may need to be careful asking for some male bambulky.
As always your delightful colourful world makes even grouchy old scroogey me think wistfully of decorations.


Lovely :0)

you certainly have great ideas.


Oh, it's all so lovely and festive and colorful!!! I'm inspired to enlist some kidlet help and get snowflakes up around here!! Thank you!! :)




I love this idea! I've been making tons of your little snowflakes- mostly to hang on gifts of wine for the holidays. The hostesses I've given them to so far have been very happy.

I have a baggy of various-sized pom poms like these which I used similarly to make "leis" for a friend who graduated last year. I'll have to fish it out and make a garland or two as well!


I've been making paper chains too today but I am afraid I cheated and bought my strips. Made the strips for grandkids though - do that every year and they get them with all their christmas card making gear at the beginning of December.

I love the paper snowflakes - may pinch that idea for my conservatory


I love those pom-pom decorations :0)
I just thought I'd pop over and see if you had been about, and you've been doing exactly the same as me if you pop over and take a look :)
'Great minds' and all that...'cept mines just the mind....lol
Have a great rest of the week Lucy.

Beautiful. The nostalgic touches are just perfect.


Love your decorations! I made a hooky paper chain style scarf for my nephews this year and remembered all the fun we had as kids making them :-)


Lovely decorations. The snowflakes look gorgeous in the window. And those pom poms are cute cute cute!


Very nice decorations and your blog overall!

Nevertheless, I am compelled to mention that Czechoslovakia has not been around for nearly twenty years. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Czechoslovakia]


Absolutely gorgeous decorations, but how do you string snowflakes on to thread? Please do share as my children love making them and I never know what to do with the results.


I love your pom pom colourful thread such fun, the paper snowflakes look ever so lovely too, such a simple but vey effective idea, thanks for sharing.
ps. I have just posted about making one of your stas decoations with festive twine I bought at the weekend and am pleased with how much fun the were to make xox

Dear Lucy I'm planning a few snowflakes for a window but thought perhaps I had better clean the window first!!! Just a little job for Friday. Paper chains are great too! Had a flashback to childhood when my dad would put them up each year. Like the buttons on your snowflake garland.
Enjoy your Christmas decorating.xxx

Such a color filled home you have, that makes for all the happy feelings you have, I'm sure.
I made a little paper chain with wrapping paper, but it's not as colorful as yours, nor as long.

so beautiful and colorful! You are so creative!


I love how brave you are with colour Lucy - I must admit to angling towards more traditional shades at Christmastime. Those paper chains do take me back - my mum would make them from crepe paper, and painstakingly mend them each year - the colours faded away, and every few years we'd make new ones. I'm feeling enormously inspired by that memory! I just made Christmas bunting, but now I'm feeling some chains (very small and delicate I think) coming on... !


A24, I love a cute polka dot or a pom pom. I like that metallic garland....Hot!

Hi Lucy,
I made a couple of your snowflakes the other day, but I haven't got the impetus to make enough of them for this year. Saving it for next year.

Im also going to try you christmas decorations you posted a few days ago - I didnt have any big hole beads, so havent started them. I might tie ribbon on instead....
Anyway, thankyou for your beautiful blog, I am a Scot, living in Australia (for 34yrs), so love to look at your pictures (loved the snow, with the warm light on the house)

You have encouraged me to start up my own craft blog (even though I am only new to crochet, but not to craft), http://www.teacupsandtiskets.blogspot.com - you were my main inspiration, and I would love to hear more about when you go to the cafe/pub to crochet, and see some photos maybe.
