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

I've never been to Dorset, the 5hr drive put me off. But it does look truly beautiful. Looking forward to the next instalment of your holiday adventures. Sarah


What a lovely and relaxing holiday, Lucy. xxx


What lovely photo's it looks like a beautiful corner of the world, nothing better than pebbles and fish and chips by the sea. We're off to Dorset at the end of the month and I'm really looking forward to our trip. xx

Beautiful, thanks Lucy - I loved reading this with my morning tea - before we all have to get back on timetable - sigh :-)

We absolutely love Dorset, the long drive from Suffolk is so worth it. Seeing your photos brings back lots of lovely holiday memories. Thank you! !


Blissful! I love living in England we have one extreme to the other in our countryside! Thank you for sharing, your photos tell a beautiful story for the little people to look back on when they are older too :D


How nice to have a place to return to that feels like home. It looks like a perfect holiday, lots of pootling and splashing around and seeing family, just lovely!


Your mum's lean to reminded me of my Nan's. It was always full of lovely baskets and used clay flowerpots and smelt of lavender (which hung from the roof) and potting compost! The perfect place.....xxx


Lovely holiday post !
Very relaxing.


It all looks perfect......the perfect time away. I love going away to Wales to visit family. They live on the Gower, a two minute walk to the sea front and just a 5 minute drive to the best little beach I know. I think the best memories are made being with family, when you have a family.......and being by water!

Lovely to stop by and catch up with you Lucy. It's been a while for me, but you have a been a perfect morning read with my coffee!

Take care

Your photos capture the essence of a sea-side summer holiday for me. Our best holidays ever have been along the dorset/cornwall coast!


I love the way you write about things.


Looks like a lovely holiday.
I never got to the seaside during my months in England, wish I did now.
Even with all your photo's, I marvel at a pebble beach, our's are sand. Sand that gets into everything.
Today is my girl's 23 birthday, have done a blog post of lots of photo's of her. Have a look if you wish

how strange ! - I thought I was the only person in the world who has a 'thing' about lean-to and utility rooms!! Haven't got one - never had one - but soooo want one!!! Thank you for sharing your lovely holiday with us - oh and I have put a beach tent on my wish list lol!!! xxxx


I'm reading this very wistfully Lucy, as when I look out of my window, it's a rather grey day, up north! Dorset is beautiful ... I was lucky to visit my friend there a few years ago ... it rained the whole week which apparently was very unusual, but I could still the beauty and charm of the county, through the raindrops!

Glad you had a lovely time

Thank you for sharing your lovely holiday. This makes me want to go to England even more.

A lovely post Lucy, it made me re read your old holiday posts which in turn reminded me so much of my own family holidays....
My daughter and her family live in Weymouth and they did the exact opposite to you last week they came north to see me !
Thank you for sharing

What a lovely ' vacation'! I love reading your blog- but then I have to stop working on my ripple! Lol

Hi from Pentwater Michigan USA- along Lake Michigan.


Oh that all looks wonderful! I'm very envious of your beach camp that, despite my daughter being 15 (15!! How did that happen??), I may have to create one for myself.


Funny to think of you and your family in all the same places as my Niece and her family ( who live in Bridders) on the same days...their Bank Holiday weekend fun followed exactly the same pattern as yours!


Love your mum's cozy kitchen! The apple certainly didn't fall far from the tree! You've definitely inherited the gift of making your home so beautifully warm and inviting.

Such a lovely holiday! I see the pretty rainbow houses!(The pink one is still my favorite.) :))Look forward to the next installment. Another rainy day here I'm afraid, but so glad you all have sunny times.


I am beyond charmed by the tan lines on Little B's feet. Perfect souvenir of summer.
