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.

Hurrah - first to comment - lovely post Lucy. July has been lovely - my birthday month and I too like you have been spending a serious amount of quality time with my hubby and 3 gorgeous sons. Keep up the lovely posts - love reading them.xx


Wow what a busy but lovely month, love all the pics especially the precarious one out of your window, its great :D

There is just so much that I love in this post that it's so hard to know where to begin!!!!
Perhaps with the beginning.
I love the photos from your adventure, and I love the story of your adventure (even though it started from a place that was no doubt terrifying and awful with your Mum's illness, and best wishes for her continued recovery)
The walk and the photos- just amazing!!!!!!!
And how beautiful can those unexpected unplanned moments of alone time be??
I love the crocheted keyrings, and adore the rabbits!!!!!!!!!! So sweet!
Take care, and this post was an absolute pleasure to read and look at- thank you :)


Lovely colourful bits and bobs to feast my eyes on. I love your courtyard garden - such gorgeousness. I visited West Bay yeeeaars ago on a day out..from Yorkshire...by car!! We went days after the great storm in October 1987 and there were smashed boats lying in the harbour and all sorts of destruction.I always said I'd make it back but I've yet to get around to it so it's fab to see it looking pretty and summery there.

Love and stuff xx ps Hope all is still going well with your mum xx


A scrummy uplifting post for me to allow my mind to wander though as I drift off to sleep. I read this whilst doing "The Top Up Night Feed" in the hopes that the baby will sleep through...yeah right! I'll be glancing back at your lovely photographs and reading your warming words at 5am. Oh it is nice to have something to look forward to (although don't tell anyone but I quite like the quiet 'just us' crack of dawn moments. There's never enough time alone with a 3rd baby) so I shall sign off now and close the lid of my laptop and I'll see you again in a few short hours.



Amiga Lucy, You've made pretty things for the craft sale. Lovely bunnies!Your outdoor space looks very nice and relaxing.Enjoy your holidays!
Hasta pronto,

In the Fall ....I am going off by myself...No one knows about it yet, but i am going to do it....I want to go to the ocean ...up in the North east of the United States, and just sit and be by the ocean....alone...Isnt that weirdly pathetic, A24?
I know it is, but ,,,I cant wait.....
I think your couple of days alone sound like a dream
BTW...the bunnies?..............cute.


The key chains are adorable and so are the bunny pillows. What a very nice July you have been having. How nice to remember! :)

Thanks for sharing such luscious pictures...

You are such a lucky, blessed lady - and I have to say - very pretty. I just love reading your posts, you are such an inspiration. It is because of you that I re-started crocheting. It was a lady on a slimming forum who pointed me in your direction and I got soooo excited at the thought of my first ripple blanket project for my own Grandlittle One; which he is of course love love loving. Second blanket on the hook with other projects itching to get started - just can't hook quickly enough sometimes hahah
Bless you & your family
Thank you for all your gorgeous thoughts, words & ideas

Gorgeous post, and your little back yard patch is looking so lush :D My tiny courtyard garden is very drab by comparison. You've inspired me to brighten it up :D


Aaaah your posts never fail to make me smile Lucy. I love your new cushion, it is just gorgeous! I love crafty stalls at markets, I getso much inspiration from them. I am off to have a look at that pattern for the little bunnies, they are so cute!!! Right now I am still working on my Hubby's granny square blanket and I have been told that until that is finished I can't start anything new lol, he wants the blanket before winter ends,,,,,,he may have it for his birthday which is in October, that is spring it will still be cool...I hope!!!


Lucy, what a lovely chatty post to enjoy with my cuppa! What a busy, busy month you have had. Love, love, love the pic of your backyard. Your pots of flowers are gorgeous! I think many of us would love to have the creative community connections that you enjoy. You are a lucky girl! Hoping your summer holidays with the Littles is full of joy and fun times. xx

Miss Holly

First...I love your haircut!!! It looks so pretty...very flattering...for your lovely face!!! Your wonderful adventure...yea for you!!! And..... I just love the key rings they look like cupcakes...I found myself sort of hungry when I looked at them!!!! Always always always love you posts....thank you!!

kate is greedy

The rabbits (as with everything on th stall - I would have been in spending heaven)are utterly gorgous - I love how you have 'pinkened' their cheeks. Lots of love, Kate (from greedy for colour) xxooxxooxx.

What a fun adventure you had in Dorsett and beyond. I do hope your Mom is doing well.
All the other pics are just beautiful. Love your colorful ways. It makes me so happy!

Enjoyed spending this time visiting your blog. Hope your mum is doing better. I'm sure your visit with her helped make her day better. I love all the photos. Your lovelies at the fund raiser were bright and cheerful. Bet they were glad for your donations to the cause. Hope they did well and made lots of money :)

That entire post was just what I needed after a less than stellar day. The bunnies have cheered me right up! Thanks Lucy.


Ahhh What a satisfying blog today. I loved all the pictures and must now make the bunny and put aside for Easter next year. I feel like I was with you on your little jaunts.............Thank you

What a beautiful post. My Mum had a caravan at Eype so I know how wonderful that bit of the world is. Love the key fobs, they are so cute.

Dear Lucy have really enjoyed reading your post really early this morning
as I was wide awake well before 6am. I could do with a little trip like the one you took especially if it involved beautiful views of the sea.
The craft stalls looked very inviting. We now have one of these just round the corner from my house and there is a crafty group that meets once a month in the local pub. I just need to get myself along to it.
I have crocheted a snail from Super-cute Crochet by Nicki Trench. There are some lovely characters in it and each has information about themselves.
Weather down here has been good for this first week of the holidays.
Thank you for a super post. xx


There was something on that craft table that looked suspiciously like your lovely snake that we saw recently, please tell me he did not slither off to a new home. I am most definitely going to have to pop over and find the pattern for those delightful little bunnies, they are gorgeous. Well done for all you did for the stall, you have had an awful lot happening and much worry over your mum, I think you are amazing to get anything made for them. Those key fobs are just lovely. Enjoy the summer holidays xx


my morningly peek-in with the cuppa hot brew and what do my sleepy eyes see? a new lucy-post chock full of all kinds of wonderful pics and pretties. now thats the way to start the day! (i saw the ssssnake on 2 pics as well... you DIDNT, did you?) i would love to meet some equally nuts-about-crafts peeps in my village here near frankfurt... anyone out there that thinks the same? my eye caught that HUGE rickrack on the chicky cushion... ooohhhhweeeee thats on my list! its ALL so inspiring... so much thanks to you for sharing! Xs Os and all that goo from heidi


Lovely! All of it! :) Makes me pine for summer. It will come. Looking forward to what else you have in store for us :)
