About Me

  • 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

The roof top feels like I'm watching an 1950's movie. Now I'm feeling nostalgic. You have a sweet yard. And yes, Geraniums are the love. And you really healthy and pretty ones. More power to you and your blog, Lucy!

Dear Lucy (I just learned your name by reading one of the comments here):
I hadn't enough time to read the whole post, or any whole post for that matters. But I jumped from here to there throughout your blog, and I think it's great. Your house DOES look like a precious lived house, you have nothing to be jealous about other people's houses. I'm going off to check your house set on flickr now.
And that red cup with the white dots...! Always there. Oh, that cup! A favorite, maybe?
OK, see you soon.


Hi Lucy, I haven't visited for a couple of weeks, what a lot of lovely things to catch up with....your posts are gorgeous. I have a small back yard too, overlooked, probably not a bad things 'cos like you I like the idea of a pretty garden but don't have time/can't be bothered to work too hard on it! But I do yearn for a larger, more private garden just so I can sit out and catch some sun. You can do quite a lot with a small space though and yours looks delightful. When your neighbors are so close you all sort of get used to it and hopefully respect each other's privacy. Have a nice week.


I love your outdoor space!The big pots are gorgeous ;-)


Sweet yard. I know what you mean about being publicly exposed. I'm with you. Always love the color you use. I need to embrace more color. Oregon is entirely too gray most of the time so we need color!!


We're having a run of Yorkshire weather here in the American Midwest, too. Good light for photographing those lovely bright flowers (if the rain stops), I guess!

I love your taste in magazines; wish I could reliably find Country Living each month over here!


Hi Lucy, love your outdoor space, I think I'm better with small areas than with bigger ones! I must say I'm with you on the fence thing, even as a Yorkshire lass. Use the excuse that a bit of trellis is needed on that wall for plants to grow along, then it will look more like a secret garden and neighbours will enjoy the suprise of whats over the fence when you invite them in!


Hi Lucy, thanks for stopping by...so nice to meet you. I always love stopping in to see your beautiful crochet creations as well. There's something about mixing all those wonderful colors of yarn together to see what happens. Love the pictures of your patio, wish it was raining here in California
where we are having tripple digit weather!


Your yard looks lovely, I've only got a small yard too and we have a small wall about a foot high along one side with a few plants in it and a jasmine climbing up. Your banana bread is in the oven as we speak

I've had a lovely visit in spite of the rain! Your garden looks very pretty, love the blue benches with the geraniums and the cookies were very tasty, thanks!


Thank you for the grey picture at the top of the post. It has been bright and sunny and hot here today and I do get withdrawal symptoms for a murky sky! As a southerner I do like my privacy and to hide behind fences (it's not being unfriendly it's about security) but why don't you put up a trellis or something similar? That way you have some privacy without seeming rude to your neighbours. Maybe you could grow a nice climbing plant up against it.


Thanks for the tour and biscuit! I'm with you on the geranium love, they really do pack a punch in the colour stakes, don't they?


Hello Lucy and yet again another lovely blog. Tonight I am doing your pasta frittata recipe for supper! Can't wait. Any chance of the peanut and raisin cookie recipe?! Kathy PS I too like privacy in my garden; go for a fence.

Hello Lucy, thanks for sharing your back yard with us. The great Yorkshire weather at its best again today. I'm with you on the fence thing, that way you can have the best of both worlds. Privacy and chatability in one!

I'm with the hubby on this one :( Sorry! That's the fabulous thing about Yorkshire, everyone being so friendly and all. The yard looks great - so disappointing that you can't enjoy it today!
