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.

You really are very clever indeed when it comes to buying pretty things. I need one of those pink cake stands for the cafe!! I love Paperchase, definitely one of my favourite places. There really is something deliciously satisfying about stationary stores. I totally get the CK tesco bag things, I too have been collecting them and feel incredibly happy when I stride across the carpark with them swinging by my side.x


What a gorgeous post today, full of the most lovely things - just love the peg bucket - beautiful!


You are so lucky with your Cath Kidston Bags, we can't get them here in Ireland, when i have asked they just look at me blank, Cath who? Your cake stand is wonderful i seem to be going mad for the colour pink all over again (it was my favourite colour as a child) and i just adore the peg bucket i have two, both cream enamel although one is a bit broke up - i ran over it with the car. Tell Management in order for you to provide a happy home you have to fulfill your own needs first, then you will be able to provide what he wants, i know they look at you as if your mad, it's like we are born with the desire to clean houses all day and jump at there every whim - lol!!!


Lucy, what exactly are those candies with the white centers? I've seen a lot of variations of them, some stripy, on other Brit blogs and am dying to know what they are. They would look so great on my own cupcakes.


Have you ever tried a website called flylady.net? It is great for teaching maximum effect-minimum effort housekeeping!
I really enjoy your blog, thanks!


You really do know how to buy pretty things...really love the colors of the Cath Kidston bags. Lucy, remember what my sampler said about housework? "My home is clean enough to be healthy and messy enough to be happy". Show that to the Management!!! Besides that, how can a man resist those pink buns!!!


Hi! I just found your blog. It is wonderful. You have so many pretty things. I'll be stopping by often!


Oh lucky you, I am still in the middle of part time school days and seem to be going backwards and forwrads all the time! Your cakes look perfectly lovely. When I think my cakes look bad I visit here: http://cakewrecks.blogspot.com/ and then I feel much better!

Ach ... now I am dissatisfied with my plain cream peg bucket which seemed so stylish when I bought it. Sigh.


Love your gorgeous photos.


Now does Nigella bake and clean her house??? Hmm maybe not? Love those shopping bags. I sa some lovely one like they in a gallery here by a maker calles Heartfelt I'm thinking stocking fillers. I had my first cheque today hooray!!!! The gallery I sell with sold felt brooches, a perch the parrot mobile and a froggy mobile woo hoo may have to go and cook something tummy yummy to celebrate!! Raspberry and choc muffins are calling me....


loving the peg bucket!! I need to stop doing the housework and do more baking!! the perfect housewife is under here somewhere............


Got a solution as i am mrs ocd and so tidy i will move in clean and tidy and you can bake for me, oh hang on dont think my weight watching would do well lol


oohoohI've got that cake plate!! I love coloured glass and pink especially.
I have a fairy with a bunny on mine, and jewelry.
I think your buns look very pleasing, and I love looking at all your pretties, they cheer me up, so there's a reason to carry on buying, to cheer up your blog fans!!!


Hi - I'm a lurker who is now delurking :) I found myself nodding along to most of your post! Both my boys are now at school-time (my littlest started at Easter) and even though I have all day at home not much housework gets done!! I'm just waiting for my husband to start complaining! Your house is gorgeous and that view from the attic! Just wow!!


I love your blog, your home is so colourful and inspiring, and I love that peg bucket,
don't worry about the dust,
enjoy doing things that make you happy.


oops, that should be therapy!!!!


Hi Luce,
There's nothing like a bit of retail thereapy to lift the spirits, is there. And I could do with some of your pink buns for the pink coffee morning I'm organising in October (for breakthrough breast cancer). Such a shame you don't live closer. Oh well, I shall have to attempt them myself! :)
Lots of love, Sal xxxx

Better a home-maker than a housekeeper is what I say! Thank-you for your kind mention - beware trade cake decoration shops - there lies the path to poverty! t.xx


Bless, it is such a fine line, blogging or housework.. such a hard choice!!! Love the peg bucket.

Hi Lucy, thank you for cheering me up...I today am having a snot and weep day (work). And it is my Harry's 11th birthday too. So am having a little "me time" before the house is descended upon by five 11 year olds and 2 8 year olds. I hope the puffy eyes go down! Again thank you for cheering me up. Kathy PS. Looking forward to meeting you at CL did you get my email?


WOW, I love that Peg Bucket, you must have a much nicer BHS than us, ours is old fashioned and dowdy! I know what you mean about cleaning and household chores though, my hubby is quite diplomatic he says...I know that you are short because you havent seen the dust up here! Dust? what Dust...dont look and it isn't there!! Blogging is much more fun! x
