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

Looking at your lovely photos is making me feel very festive....Christmas just never feels the same in the warm weather....I'll always remember my Christmas times spent in the UK....there is something quite magical about Christmas in a cold climate. If I don't have a chance to say it again Lucy, Merry Christmas to you and yours. Warmest Wishes, Vicki


I love how silvery white your town's lights look! Holly leaves are looking very cute.


Love these snow pictures!!!
I'm super jealous!!!!
And the Christmas decorations look amazing!!!
Hope you and the Little Peeps have a fantastic amazing lead up to Christmas


I can imagine the gleeful giddyness of your littles! Now, add to that excitement the realization that school has been canceled! That's how it would be in our town here in Virginia, USA. LOL
I admire how you took the circuitous route with your little man just so you could both enjoy the sights of the season.


Yummy snowy photos, soooooo Christmassy, love your post as always, beautiful wee decoratons, happy kids are a real joy, hope you have lots of it this season
Lol Karen x


I can't imagine waking up to snow outside, it just doesn't happen where I live. But it does sound exciting. I love the festive lights too, the only problem is that it is daylight saving here and it is nearly 9pm before it is dark enough to really see them. My two girls are well and truly in bed by then. Oh well, in a few more years they can enjoy it with me.
One thing children everywhere are enjoying I think is the chocolate treats. I have a couple of advent calendars, one each, and they are very excited about the next door being opened each day and getting a chocolate treat.

Thinking of a crochet garland myself, based on your springtime wreath but with crochet holly, bells, mini baubles and....I'm hoping, some crochet mistletoe!

The rate I'm going with my Christmas Present Projects (lOts Of rOund cushiOns!, it'll be New Year before I get to the Garland!!!

Happy Hookin' Lucy xx


Amiga Lucy,
I love white lights too. I’m looking forward to see your holiday wreath; I just finished to assemble my DIY cheerful merry berry wreath, and our Christmas tree. However, I’m still working on the fireplace mantle and the advent bunting that hopefully it will be done before the 24th :o) “Now, the tree is decorated with bright merriment, and song, and dance, and cheerfulness. And they are welcome. Innocent and welcome be they ever held, beneath the branches of the Christmas Tree, which cast no gloomy shadow!”. Charles Dickens.
Take care. Hasta pronto,
Gloria x


your town looks so amazing!
enjoy the snow :)

Love seeing all your beautiful pictures and posts! Love the holly leaves and would love to learn how to make them! I didn't realize you could crochet with embroidery floss! I am just teaching myself how to crochet this past year and love reading about all your inspiration on this blog! I hope to try out a ripple afghan next year... or maybe a granny square one... or ... or.... :O) would love to donate to your site - tried to but couldn't get through to paypal... I will try again! I wanted to thank you for all the marvelous eye candy you have posted here on this lovely blog! Hugs to you! Merry Christmas! Bari Jo


Oooh, those photos are making me terribly homesick. I grew up near Holmfirth and those street scenes are soooooooo reminiscent..in fact for a moment I did think that was Holmfirth! lol.

And alas no snow here, but disctinct nip of winter in the air finally!


What a wonderful view from the attic window! I'm a huge fan of winter and this lovely post sums up why :D


You would love the mini-snowmen at The Dapper Toad blog. Do you knit?


No snow down here-yet.But the other afternoon some really big heavy clouds rolled in and they looked very snowy rather than rainy.
We used to have two big old white cherry trees in our High Street,right in the centre of one side and they had white lights on their branches, they used to look wonderful.A couple of years ago they were taken down- 'dangerous trees' the Council decided.It just isn't the same without them,very gloomy and miserable in Spring ( no lovely white blossom),Autumn ( no lovely coloured leaves) and at Christmas ( no lights at all).

I bet your wreath will be so fab. What sweet lights your town has...and deserted streets, too! Where is everyone?


Love the Christmas excitement - all your photos are so familiar to me cos I live a few miles away down the Wharfe valley - I too could see snow on the hills this morning. Yipeeeeeee!!!


I was just thinking about you earlier before I read this post, I have been painting toy boxes (one for my son and one or my nephew) to give as Christmas pressies, the colour on the tin said "duck egg" but as I look at them now they look like giant Tiffany boxes lol! x


Love your Christmas photos...reminds me of when I studied in Wales and all the beautiful decorations and seeing reindeer in the town square. Thanks for another great post!!


Hello Lucy! Snow does it to me every single time. I am a snow child at heart. Right now I am making a winter rabbit and stitching silver snowflakes onto his pale grey ears.

I'm so excited!

Enjoy every snowflake of it! Here in France we may have a little while longer to wait. But who knows? Magic can happen at any time.

And all we have here is soggy, soupy rain! But the Christmas lights to sparkle even then!


WOW - Snow.
Christmas equals summer for us here in Australia - it is nothing for Christmas day to be 30c so a white Christmas is something magical and dreamlike to me

I am with you on those decorations in your town (village?) whatever, can't remember what you call it! Anyway, they are so pretty!
Ha, in Georgia, if it snows, they close the schools. The kids pray for snow!!


This is the first time I've seen your little village....Love it! I always feel I've received a little treat in my day when I see you've posted a new blog. Enjoy the season with your family.

The House of Jones

Snow already! The view from the attic is lovely. I'm starting to feel a bit festive here too - could really do with some of that crochet holly in my life, it's amazing!
Right now though, I'm going to catch up on Attic life... been a while since I stopped by, I'm looking forward to catching up :o)

I can not and do not like that you are way ahead of us on the snow fluff stuff. I have been hoping beyond hope that this drizzl-ie mist-ie gray wet stuff would turn to white fluff for me. I know I better watch what I pray for here in the Windy One, as it will be here soon enough.

Now, let me get this straight you can walk down that beautiful street in town, I'm sure by the canal too, to get a fresh dinner of chippies. The things that catch my eye and make me smile are so simple in your winter wonderland.

I will be waiting for some holly glory too, you can bet on that.

Chocolate Soldier On, My Friend,
