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

Wow - what a lot of fantastic photos. Home is very special!

I absolutely love this quote (and hope it is okay to use it sometime)..."I choose to live my days creatively and in full colour, with a huge dash of positive thinking. I celebrate the small pleasures and the little luxuries. I look for the happy stuff, seize it with both hands and enjoy it to the full. I tell myself daily how lucky I am to be living this life, and I am so grateful for all that I have." You do live that way and I adore the colorful life you live and think I may have to aspire to the same!

Such a happy set of photos. Xx


Lucy it is such a pleasure to share in your daily goings on of happy-ness and colour filled joy, you are truly an inspiration and it is wonderful to have a little window onto your world! However I do certainly agree with a previous statement you once made about yourself, and it applies to me too..... Both feet firmly in the bonkers camp!! :) God bless and thank you again for another year chock full of loveliness xxxxx

Dear Lucy photos that show how wonderful the "ordinary days" can be
throughout the year. I love the plants on the wall and the paving beyond the gate and the last photo so cosy and inviting. xx


Love your blog, your imagination, and wonderful use of color and yarn. Happy New Year and thanks for sharing! Your projects always inspire me :)


These photos just radiate happiness and family life. You have a knack for finding the colour and rainbows in the most everyday things! xx


I think the historians of the future would love to stumble across your beautiful record of family life for the SAHM in early 21st century Britain.


A very enjoyable look back on the year. I'm always struck by how often the same rainbow colours appear in your photos, even when no crochet or yarn is involved.
Happy New Year!

Just perfect! Your blog always puts a big smile on my face. I have added a link to your blog from mine under "Blogs that make me smile" :)xxx


Beautiful photos but my favourite is the view you have. Wonderful rolling hills. The closest I have in Lincolnshire is a bump in the road! Have you ever thought about publishing a calendar? Take care x


Your photos are such a feast to the senses!! I love the amount of colour and pattern in your life. Happy New Year!!


Oh how lovely!! Now I tried to pick a *favourite* pic out of them all ... VERY hard but I think it would be the courtyard with the bunting and flowers. Too beautiful. Thank you Lucy!

Trisha Grant

Oh what a soothing, cozy, happy few moments I have just had viewing your lovely photos. I agree with another reader that your blog always makes me smile! :-)


I wish there was a way to bottle the essence of your home - it's coziness and happiness and love. Because if there was, I would buy a million! xoxo, Jess


Such a wonderfully colourful and warm home! Thanks for sharing the pictures. I love your fireplace. Is it wood that you burn? It just makes the last picture so perfect.


Can I please come live at Attic 24? Just for one day of colorful, flowering, cozy happiness. Love your pics!!


Such lovely photos. Thank you for sharing.


Inspiring, as always. Thank you for the reminder to enjoy the little things along the way!

Happy new year from East London in South Africa and once again thank you so much for your positive view on life.


I have once again shared your blog address with a complete stranger. She (and the others) expressed a desire to learn to crochet and I thought your blog would be the one to inspire and instruct. Your tutorials are detailed and pretty to look at, and that isn't counting all your wonderful photos and the sharing of your energy and upbeat self.


You are blessed! thanks for sharing the happiness with us. what an inspiration you are!


Lovely photos, you have the most amazing blog, I admire your honesty and genuine approach to life and motherhood. I wish you and your family a wonderful, happy 2013!


Your world seems to be so bright cheerful and colourful And yes, it has reminded me of me something invaluable: everything can be a thing of beauty. Thank you and yes, I'm going to enjoy your other year reviews.

Thomasina Tittlemouse

I have so loved your end of year reviews. I love all the snippets of home life you post as well as your amazing hooky artistry. There is something about capturing in pics the gaps or in-between moments that would otherwise escape notice but actually hold the rest of things together. Loved looking back at your previous years' reviews too. Happy New Year, Lucy! Looking forward already to your review of 2013 - I know it will be full of colour, happy memories and good things! E xx
