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

hope you are feeling better Lucy. cant believe how different those three roof top pictures look, i like the low afternoon sun one. Those hot choclates look delicious, i could do with one of those now :)


A gorgeous collection of photoa, looKs like a super start to new year! I love your ideal homes calendatr. I never buy that mag either but I must look out for the calendar for next year!

Those hot chocolates look soooo good - perfect for a well below zero kind of day like today!




My oldest girl has started going to pre-school every day this term, and it's a bit of a shock having to leave the house on time every morning, after nearly four years of baby-time (and I worked from home for a couple of years before that). By the end of this January though we were starting to get into the swing of it. The lighter afternoons improve my mood immeasurably as well. Roll on spring!

Your blog has become part of my morning routine. Clicking on your site, seeing you've posted something new...it's like opening a beautifully wrapped gift. Great way to start my day! I discovered your blog exactly 1 year ago (and am in the process of reading all your posts prior to that). In the last year my house (I'm a crocheting machine now!) & my life have been infused with color; thanks to you. You've been promoted from stranger to friend in this past year....my friend, Lucy.

Beautiful pictures, Lucy!




I just LOVE your blog! It truly inspires me and makes me feel good about life. I am a Mom at home... my daughter is 10 months old and it has been nice to read of your quiete and soothing adventures as I find myself in the sam boat. I have also recently taken up crocheting so I couldn't' be more happy to see your love inspired projects. Thank you for creating this-it truly helps me.


Beautiful pictures Lucy.......I'm de-cluttering with a vengeance..... i'll bob over soon xx


Thank you for this lift of spirits. I share Jill S.
thoughts of you and your blog. I know this blog, especially the wonderful tutorials you make take a lot of time. I do so appreciate all of it and hope you continue for a long time. Thank you for all your colorful contributions to my days!


Beautiful cheering photos as ever Lucy. And I agree, getting back on track after Christmas has been harder than usual this year ... I blame the lack of a proper winter, too much damp grey gloom and not enough of those bright sunny days you always capture so well from the attic :D


I love seeing Little B's dimpled hand in the images. My babies are all grown up and I remember their dimpled chubby hands which were so sweet. They grown up so fast. You blink and they are gone from the nest.

The winter weather in my part of the world has been very similar to yours this year. But Spring is coming--and it will be grand.

a cheerful living adventure

Ooh, what a lovely cosy post! Thank you. Was just looking for a bit of cheeriness in the midst of an afternoon of work, and there it is! (I went looking for the Ideal Homes calendar - stupidly not until January though, and I'd missed it! Pah!)

happy little cottage

Fabulous post as usual Lucy ~ your January photos are wonderful. I especially love the photos with Little B just getting in on the act with your yummy looking family planner and those beautifully decorated hot chocolates. My eye also keeps getting drawn to your fabby turquoise shoes too ~ do you think you could possibly share where you got them from? :O)xx

P.S I hope that you are feeling a little bit better today too.


In your night sky pic you have captured the moon with Jupiter and Venus, lovely pic.
Thanks for a lovely blog!


What a gorgeous January you've had, dear Lucy! Thank you for sharing your colorful life with us. Silly me...one of my fave piccies is the one with the cute white ducks in the frosty field!

Your pictures are bringing a lump to my throat...the ones of your barges on the canal...last summer my daughter and I spent a few weeks in the south of England...doing the gypsy caravan holiday...and we spent a few days where we saw those barges...and thought what a wonderful life that would be! Sigh!!


Thanks for these lovely shots of colour to brighten my white wintry day here! ;-)


Nice & colourful post!
my turn to say thank you!


So glad you feel better to blg this wonderful post.
Waiting for next!!!

You are such a bright spot! Beautiful post, thanks for the inspiration!


The more I read, the more I like!!! Can't believe you do a bit of Flylady too. I started january off trying to reinforce my routines a bit too and decluttering a few places. Things have slid a bit this week - housework is very boring when I'd rather crocheting or sewing or blogging, plus there have been a couple of other things which have got in the way. But I shall jump back on that wagon tomorrow!!!
