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

Every girl needs an impulse buy that makes the heart sing, and a desk of your very own to create and write at. Have a lovely day up there in the north, hope you are having a sunny day like we are here in Gloucestershire.

This piece was waiting just for you. It looks perfectly at home. I'm anticipating the knob changes.


Oh I just love to find a treasure in a second hand store! Great color on the chest of drawers, and I love the idead of each knob a different color!


I like the shiny purple handles but I think a different colour for each would look fab!

Ah, your lovely, lovely, chair. It would be so perfect for my little reading corner! It looks great next to your new old desk though!


Hi Lucy
Im Chantelle and I live in Sweden, just wanted to pop in and say that I simply love your blog! (been following it for a few months now) All the bright colours, all the lovely things you have made, your energy and you always being so positive is truely an inspiration. I have just started crocheting and must say its rather fun. Hope you enjoy your own space it looks really cosy


I love it! You always inspire!!!

What a lovely chest! It's a great idea to put the TV on top and all your DVD's etc inside...I am also searching for a pine chest of drawers in a local reject shop, so that when baby no. 3 arrives I have somewhere to put his clothes in. I was thinking of Farrow and ball light blue to color it.... I love little projects like this. Enjoy your day, lovely Lucy, x Pati


WARNING! Am coveting your stuff AGAIN!!!! I adore old dark furniture, I feel drawn to it despite not wanting to be. It's almost as though I've been born again but my soul is still hanging on to the victorian era... I get a vague "de ja vue" (spelt?) feeling when I bring a piece of furniture home. BUT, I don't have expensive old dark furniture, I like to rescue the battered old stuff. I should do a blog post about my rescued tat (as my husband calls it!) some I will admit gets a paint job, but usually just cream or white...maybe I should be braver and go for some cheering colours.
ps, getting desperado to see the secret crochet project you mentioned!!


OOOh I love the new chest of drawers Lucy - it definitely belongs in your lovely colourful cheerful home! And I love the new desk as well - the dark wood goes well with all the colours I think. I prefer non matchy-matchy homes by miles. Your home always looks so warm and inviting.


jajaja I have the same lamp from Ikea to hook at night!! Wonderful!!

Floortje Wartenbergh

Your house looks so lovely and cosy! Love all the colours everywhere. Great find your chest with drawers and you're absolutely right about the colour: it's fabulous! Enjoy your afternoon. Kind regards, Floortje


Your new desk looks lovely, Lucy. I also love the chest of drawers! And there's the pretty striped jug of flowers on the table, too! What a colorful feast for the eyes! Thank you!! :)


I can see it now - stripey crocheted drawer knob covers, coming soon! :-)


Oh that chest of drawers is SO you Lucy! Such a fabby find!It all looks very cheery and homely!
Just the place for a spot of hooking!

That is the first thing that I saw too, it's gorgeous and what a gorgeous colour. It's great that you found the perfect spot for it too, beautiful and functional.

Did you make the "face" in the last picture on purpose? Your little lamp makes an hilarious nose. I'm trying to figure out what the eyes are. :)

Puppet Lady

I'd never have thought of putting the telly on it but it really works well! What a great find!

that turquoise chest was what caught MY eye in the first photo!


amy in cambridge (my fair city), ma

Love your new-old chest of drawers. I'm a sucker for those, too. And, yes, I agree that everyone should have a desk of their own. Beautiful stuff, beautiful post, as always.


That chest of drawers would have drawn me in too!I love that colour. I am just deciding what colour to paint my welsh dresser ( I have been trying to decide for 3years!!!)

Love Tickety-boo


Such a scrummy drawer! Ooh, I'm with Jani's comment: what about multicoloured (of course) stripey crocheted knob covers?!?? ♥


Ooooh Lucy what a gorgeous find! There's nothing like the fizzy excitement of a second hand discovery I think. Treasure hunting at its best!

Such a beautiful colour too. Different handles would make it truly yours.

Glad the ebay tip was helpful. I've bought tons of fabric (still to do things with most of it!) from there in the past. Looking forward to seeing Connievan prettied up. Must get the curtains made for our bav too.

Have a lovely week.


beautiful,the white one at the right side is also beautiful. don.t you think so?


The "Tiffany Blue" chest is adorable. But I must say I love your sunny nook to sit, write and hook! Happy thoughts to you!


What lovely drawers!(So to speak haha!)Though I must admit I was also eyeing up the dresser in the edge of that photo too. And as for your little space, didn't Virginia Woolf herself say every woman should have a room of one's own. Failing that,of course, a quiet corner should do it. I, however, am still at the clearing away stage as the two men in my life have yet to be convinced!

Love and stuff xx
P.S. Hope you've remembered pancakes today! G
