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

Early morning walks are the best, the light has a special kind of quality then. Looking at your photos is so exciting now I know I'm coming to yarndale for the weekend, all the way from the South coast!

Oh Lucy. I have a blog post in draft with about 70% of the same photos! Lol. It was bound to happen. Admittedly mine were taken a LOT later than 7am hahaha it takes me a long time to scrub all the porridge off of TTB and get him into an acceptable "leaving the house" state!

Looks amazing!!!!i would love to visit where you live one day!!!! England is simply stunning;)


You really live in a gorgeous corner of the world such wonderful tranquil photos, my favourites the one of the bridge with the perfect reflection, what a wonderful post. Such a magical time of year xx


Beautiful photos. Lovely fresh green leaves on the trees x

Lovely photographs! That 9th picture with the colored stripe cover of some sort doesn't look like a real photo, the colors are so bright. That is amazing. (I am not really sure what that is, sorry if I didn't call it the right thing.)

I recieved my Yarndale Tote in the mail yesterday, I love it! I love the sheep you all made and printed on the front, that is what made me want one. Thanks for offering them for sale.

Your pics as always inspire me. Looking around you and at nature is just awesome and life is what you make it. Its out there for us all. Love the barges what a sight.


Wow, that bridge seems really beautiful! In the pictures it resembles somewhat the canals of Venice I think :)


What lovely bright & happy photos. Such bright colour, fresh and ready for the day. Sarah


Aww, so lovely. What a fantastic post, it was like I was taking the walk with you and could even smell the air :)

Jo Roberts

Love your neighbourhood. It is good to get to know where you live. So many people don't. I feel like I have had some fresh air reading your post!! Jo x


Lisa G.

It certainly looks very special - lovely!


There's no place like home. You picked the best time of the day for your walk.


Lucy, the photos are gorgeous...I am soooo jealous. I would love to visit this place sometime in the future but you have never said where it is exactly. Is it possible that you could let me know? E-mail is elainebrown3@comcast.net. I would greatly appreciate it. Unless I win the lottery, it will be a long while before I could make the trip but for now I will just dream about it. Thanks for sharing!


you live in such a beautiful place!

I'm in love with England's canal boats. I saw one on YouTube of all places, loved seeing inside it! Thanks for sharing your walk with us.Mine consisted of a'stroll' to the chicken coop to see the new chicks and checking on my bee apiary.


Lovely photos, like you I live in an area of outstanding natural beauty and I never take it for granted. Oh how lucky we are x

Susan Smith

Absolutely beautiful and again I'm homesick for walks along canals and your amazing greenery. Love whirlygigs and colour. I just posted a stall selling them on my blog here in Oz.

Maple Trueheart

You're really blessed to live there. Love all the photos you took. Must visit this place at some time. Last week I was in England for the first time after 32 years. I visited Norwich and Cambridge and I have to say that I fell in love with this lovely country. I thought at every time that this is were I want to be and live. You're so lucky.


Absolutely beautiful photos, you do indeed live in a wonderful part of the country. I am thinking I must try an early morning walk with my camera too, it is such a beautiful still time of the day.


Beautiful photos Lucy, so pretty. Do visit Bolton abbey again, I visited the uk last year and went to Bolton abbey as my mum used to go there with her family when she was a girl, it's just beautiful, isn't everything in Yorkshire? I would love to see your photos after having been there myself. Also my yarn dale bag arrived yesterday yay! So now there is a little bit of Yarndale in Melbourne, Australia xxBrenda


Lovely images! Thank you especially for the beech leaves. I posted newborn North American beech leaves (and a few other species) a couple of days ago, and was wondering at the time what other types of beech leaves look like. I think your leaves may be European beech?


Such beautiful pictures, I too love wondering along canals and having a nosy at the boats.
This post made me laugh because my mum has just bought that parrot riding a rainbow bike and stuck it in the garden, it's from lidl if you fancy one for yourself!

Darlene Garner

Thank you for all the beautiful photos along your walk. You just put me right there to see and smell the trees, flowers and waterway.

Mrs A

Such beautiful photos Lucy! I love the early morning and late afternoon light, there is something special about it all. When alone on a walk like this , no-one else around, the air even feels different, as though it hasn't yet been breathed!! Mrs A
