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

I must go back and get out all my magazines and look thru them again using your vision!! Thanks!


I too am a summer girl .............mmmmmm. Thanks for the lovely pictures.


I love my magazines too! I agree that the summer mags are lovely BUT I AM an Autumn girl so for me the Sep/Oct/ Nov mags are DELICIOUS! LOL! Cx


Very very inspiring ...... and super pretty


ohhhh yeeeeeeaaaaahhhhhhhh. red is THE highlight! i want the oil lamp next to the bed and the stripey pillow cushions and a rocker but red please (although the blue is scruptious as well) help me catch my breath! thank you for sharing!!!! (hugs!) (if i buy MORE mags my hubby will have me shot at sundown... but arent they sooooo good for the SOUL? - and for ideas to say the least!) the hooky blanket is a real tease, reminds me quite a bit of a "little woolie" (blog) piece! i am redoing a tiny room for ME. a place for my sewing machine, and all my pretties, shelves to get my treasures sorted... a table where i can do my crafts and paint... where i can turn my ideas into wonderful lil things of the heart... cant get enough ideas! xoxo heidi

Ooh lovely, thank you!


Gaaah! The wanties hit me so bad! I wasn't even prepared since I don't usually get it from looking in magazines or blogs, but I want... no I NEED that flowery chair in the vintage vacation picture. :) Oh my, what a beauty!

Great post! I am a magazine junky too. In fact I came home with a nice stack yesterday. Everything from yoga to ceramics. I still miss Domino Magazine!


What your summer magazines do for you, your blog does for me. I get SO excited when I see you've got a new post. Bless you...

I am saving the idea of that crochet blanket! As soon as my wip's are finished I am going to attempt something similar...It is beautiful. Thanks for sharing.


gosh that is fun to look at. i would 'read' those pictures over and over and over. jkj

With subscriptions to The knitter, Simply Knitting and Mollie Makes already I have banned myself from buying any other magazines. So thank you for this little free peek at all that loveliness that I'm missing!!! ( feel to guilty looking though them in the shop)


Gracias Lucy!!!! por este hermoso paseo a través de las páginas de estas revistas!!! Me ha encantado, como también me encantan todas las entradas de tu Blog. Te mando un beso grande desde Argentina!!!!


Oh, I want to figure out that crochet blanket so badly! Is it uk double crochet for the lines, with uk treble to make the dotty parts? Someone who's better at reading crochet help!

Also, that room with the powder blue sofa and yellow rotary phone is *divine*. Even my husband thought so (when I forced him to look, hah).


I love British magazines. I find our Canadian, and the American ones are too staged and polished. They make me think my house is not "designed" enough. But these pictures inspire me to rearrange my pottery, make some quilts and yes, crochet a stripey blanket. I obviously am not living with enough colour.

Thanks for a splash of summer colour. I don't normally buy magazines but the local library stocks quite a few. I'll look for these next time I'm there! They're so inspiring.


I thought of little woollies blanket too, it's definitely a bit like this one. I am finding a new love for red too, maybe it is the onset of colder weather. Lovely cheerful pics, thank you!

Little Nan

I have been holidaying in the UK for 5 months but kept my subscription going back home for about 5 magazines! So when I get home, there will be a large pile of housy mags waiting for me! Nothing is better than a comfy couch and getting lost in a dream as you turn the pages! Bliss! X


Many thanks for your pictures. I like it alot. But the autumn i Sweden is also a nice time. When you can get dressed i knitted clothes.


Thanks for the beautiful pictures, just what I need after a bit rainy autumn day.


Wow, soooo much eye candy! And it's funny that you notice other things when having them presented like this. The caravan cushion, for instance,led me to the website of Lasso the Moon - so many pretty things! Have you seen this sweet caravan print? http://www.lassothemoon.co.uk/Pages/Collections/prints-and-artwork/Products/Caravan-limited-edition-hand-printed-linocut-DFCCE573.html


I dream of colour - but with a boring fella no such luck :(

So thank you for letting me see and dream again!!


Country living is my favorite magazine of all time! I love it and buy it religiously each month! I have for the past 4 years. I have all those issues and can say "ditto" to just about everything you said!


Oh so much inspiration... if it was just me living in my house I would paint the whole lot white.......floors, ceilings, walls, then add coloured bits - like creating a canvas.. sadly I live with others who like brown and beige....ho hum :)x


Nice shares! I am also someone who reads a magazine cover to cover. I don't subscribe to too many but if I let myself get crazy with it I certainly could!
