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

You are so lucky Lucy...to have a man that loves you and that you love still to this day with all of your heart and that you haven't lost sight of that love. I applaud and commend you both!

Lucy your life is blessed!


i'm in LOVE! what a super experience and thanks for sharing it with us! you've given me ideas and permission to break out of my rut! loved the photos, the explanation and the joy! i too have rolled down a hike. i'm grinning with the recall. have a wonderful valentine's day!!


Wonderful post. I grew up in a part of the world with wonderful hiking and snowy winters. Although I love my home now, I do miss the mountains, fall colors and snowy winters tremendously. Nothing quite compares to the wonderfully happy, tired feeling after a day spent out in the snow.


simply stunning!


what a lovely marriage you have. xx


The way you explain your excursion makes me feel like if I was there,you enjoy your life so much!
I love your happy blog!


Oh, your post and those photos took me away. Snowy and magnificent. Thank you.

I love your posts about your walks makes me want to pull on my coat,scarf, hat and gloves on and get out there and enjoy the great outdoors!! I should do more. Your photo's are very inspiring laughed about you sliding back down on your bottom - it must of been quite trecherous in the snow! your so lucky having all that on your doorstep makes me want to move to the countryside.

Great post, thanks for such a lovely walk. I just want to thank you for the granny square pattern: I've been out and bought the wool and have made 4 squares this week. I can't find the bright colours though, maybe I could buy some from your wool shop and they would post it down to me in Kent. What d'you think? Love Sal x


Lovely post Lucy, you make walking sound so much fun!!! But not sure I'll give it a go!! You sound so happy together :) x


What a lovely day you had. The scenery is stunning. When we visited the UK in 2007 we went on a very short walk near Pately Bridge, but very green, rather than white - a truly beautiful part of the world. It would have been lovely ending your day by returning to your warm, snug, bright home. I love visiting your cheerful blog.


Aww, thanks for sharing your walk! Grogeous pictures. Andi x


Hi Lucy
What a wonderful post.And the pictures are
great.You live in a wonderful country.
Have a nice week.


Hi Lucy,
I love your post and can very much relate.
My boyfriend and I love to walk too. We visited the Yorkshire Dales for a long weekend last spring - climbing Ingleborough and Pen y Ghent. This was in preparation for walking the Great Glen Way in Scotland. The weather was atrocious (extremely wet!) but it was not enough to put us off and I think added to the atmosphere! It was my first visit to the Dales and we will definitely be returning soon! You live in a beautiful part of England.

I am visiting my in-laws in Yorkshire this weekend... hope there is some snow left! So beautiful!


I think yorkshire is simply stunning, so much so that we are trying to encourage my OH brother to move there, so we can visit more...
We are going to Hardcastle Crags on sunday...I'm so looking forward to it....lovely post..xx


What a contrast between your inside and outside posts but both so lovely. Everytime you post your attic photos I always wanted to see beyond those hills of yours...and it's stunning. I hope you show more photos in the spring and summer from up there. But it looks so cold....brrrrrr....you must be a brave soul to walk and picnic in such dreadful weather. Thinking of you sliding down made me smile. You have a wonderful way of getting a kick out of life no matter what, don't you? It's quite nice to read about the wonderful bond you have with your husband. Very sweet!!


What a beautiful post about your wonderful trip with your husband.:) I can see why you both would choose to move back to that area. So pretty! It reminds me of all the times Glenn and I would go for day trips and hike in the hills to take in the beauty of Idaho. Just a most wonderful time.

Thanks again Luce for a wonderful post about your neck of the woods and the wonderful "writing" you do.

Have a most wonderful evening dear! ;)


Thank you so much for sharing your Sunday with your hubby. Now, if he would just take a camera and snap pics of you sliding and laughing, although I see it perfectly through your description. However.....I see you sliding down in your pink pj's. HA! You are so blessed.


I love popping into visit your blog! your photos are always such eye-candy! I enjoy reminicing about Yorkshire too when I see the photos of your hikes. Thank you :)


Lovely post Lucy, I smiled all the way through it. x
