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

Hi Lucy, very happy with Connievan news. The curtains are looking great. Never fear I love your blog whether it be plant news, caravan, holiday snaps or walking in the rain with the little people.

Connievan is looking amazing, you must be so proud of her and yourself! Cute and Easy Crochet was the first crochet book that I bought and it was after I read your post. It is a fabulous book with loads of great projects. Looking forward to seeing what you do to connievan next!


I think we should abandon the pub on a Monday night and do crochet in Connievan instead :-)


we too have been caravanning in our recently purchased van. Went to just outside Arnside on the West Lanc's /Cumbria border. Weather was poor but we loved it as did our 2 youngest, can't wait for next trip. Am inspired by your efforts to "pimp" your van. Curtains look fab.


I love your Connievan stories and pics. I just wonder why you had to stitch that beautiful gingham fabric over the velvet curtains? I mean why didn't you put them by themselves?AriadnefromGreece!


I really is the prettiest, cosiest loveliest looking caravan! I know exactly what you mean thou, when we're away in our tent I go all out for a glamping look with bunting and fairylights strung up everywhere!

You could say that the idea of a cafetiere cover has been "percolating" for a while!

Lucy, I'm not tired of these posts - it looks absolutely charming and so comfortable inside - what fun for your whole family to take trips in!

Connievan is looking super cute!!! Well done :) I love seeing how things are coming along in there. Those curtains are a lot of work aren't they - but they're worth every stitch...

I just love seeing your Connievan! We recently bought our own caravan & love to see what other people do with the drab interior! :)
So thank you!

Just popped into your blog and enjoyed a wee look around. Have shared your caravan posts with a friend who will love your ideas. Happy weekend


I love to read about Connievans transformation. Perhaps you could purchase a jazzy duvet cover to cover the little people's area, some nice cheap ones in the supermarket and you get lots of fabric for little money.


I would LOVE a little space like this, maybe sometime soon. I'm loving the updates :)

Connie is becoming so pretty...comfy, charming and bright! Love your style Lucy :) I have an idea that may save you a little money. When it comes time to cover your back cushions try looking for some summertime picnic tablecloths. We have all sorts here in the stores in the U.S. They are a good strong cotton with lots of different patterns, colors and designs. Gingham, florals, stripes, checks etc... You may even find used ones at the thrift store. They are in all sizes and hemmed. They are usually dirt cheap this time of year and less expensive than fabric. I have used them for curtains, pillows, dust ruffles, placemats, napkins, craft projects etc.. I just cut them up into whatever size I need and sew away. Your cafetiere cozy is adorable! Take care x


Hi I'm following the Connivan blog avidly, as we have exactly the same caravan, only slightly bigger so there is even more beige velour! After our summer trip this year, we are planning to rip out the carpet and lay vinyl flooring, and trying to decide whether to paint the inside white. Its not a job to take on lightly!


The cosy looks really good! It is funny that I was just reading that post yesterday catching up on part of your blog.

Your caravan posts are making me want a caravan of my very own! You are such a bad influence! ;)



Hi Lucy , glad the bad weather didn't put you off your caravan love. I enjoy these posts so much and I'm looking forward to hearing a bit about your hols .

All looking very cozy! X


I would think you could find some colored canvas and sew covers for the cushions in the kids play area and use the same canvas to re- upholster the valances above your new curtains....nice bright navy so your crochet creations stand out?


I can't get enough of your caravan news, like all your other news. I am even starting to have fantasies of getting a caravan myself!


Your home and caravan posts inspire me to start to improve my place - this week I've finally printed out and displayed some photos that I've been meaning to do for ages. It has definitely brightened the place up! And you make me want to go camping - I can't wait for my summer drive-around-with-tent! Glad you survived the hideous weather this week :)


The set-up and kitchen reminds me so much of a camper-van I used to own. Traveled cross-country (thousands of miles, Colorado to Massachusetts) with an Irish Wolfhound, 6 cats, and a parrot, and lived in the camper for several months. It was a lovely home!

I hope your family enjoys the caravan magic and makes many happy memories :)


Been thinking.... the children's sleep/play area. Ikea cot sheets have elastic all the way around them. They may just fit.
I know they are not very colourful or stripy, but should you buy some material, the elastic idea is what would be handy.
Well done with the coffee cosy. Gives me an idea for my hubby's. Thanks.
Oh, I love your caravan. Just like a little doll's house for grown-ups. I want one! <3
