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

Hey Lucy, I bought some lovely muscari last week, I love them but I can't stop them from falling after a week. I have a question for you, My Mum can crochet, pretty well, but has never followed patterns. She has been making bibs and dishcloths but would love to be able to follow some patterns. Do you have a book you could reccommend to start her off? oh and "I'm still waiting" as Diana Ross would sing xx


We have a lovely flower stall in the town where I work and like you I love selecting them and them being wrapped in paper for me to take home. It feels so much better than walking out the supermarket with them (although most of the flowers I have bought recently have been supermarket bought).

Pictures as always are lovely Lucy.

Hi Lucy - I've been reading you for awhile and wanted to say hello! What better time than on this post. It completely made me swoon. I'm a sucker for flowers.


I have been out all day and your post really brightened me up! I love the purple crocus, but then again I love all things purple... and lilac... and mauve!!!!LOL. Thank you Lucy.

Oh I'm so glad your week is back to normal!! Carrying your little flowers round the house, sort of 'Attic Normal' anyway!

Mum's Amaryllis is still a closed flower head, although it was "butchered" and divided into three pots (it's over 20 years old now!) so I spose we have to give it a chance!

Today I have tried your crochet flowers, they look fab! Thank you!


Beautiful flower photos. Love the narcissi and the vintage-looking mug they are in.


Just lovely Lucy. Having a tricky day and just stopping for a minute to look at these have helped. Thankyou x


Grape hyacinths remind me of my childhood when they would grow all around our house. Thanks for bringing back a wonderful memory!


I am a new reader and already a passionate fan of your lovely blog. I have two vases filled with daffodils in my home right now - tangible sunshine on a rainy day!
But, please tell me, do you have two ripple blankets? You have posted a great deal about the one (I think it is the more vibrantly colored blanket), but then in photos (the photo with the narcissi, for example) I see a more pastel colored ripple blanket also. Are these two separate blankets or a trick of lighting?


The Muscarilook heavenly, I have always loved them so. But not had any this year :o( my longing for them has been like a pain. which has now been eased a little by your lovely pictures.
I love Narcissi too, not only do they look so delightfully cheerful, but their scent is divine.
Hey - I have 'The wonderful weekend book" by my bedside too! and I had an Amaryllis that could have been Vera's twin. We bloggie girls can be so alike!
Love your sweet little ink pots :o)
You are such a gem


thank yoy for lovely photos:) as usual..
you have inspiering me to croshet things even outdoors..


The flowers are beautiful Lucy!! I can't wait for all the wonderful colors to starts popping out around the yard. And who would call you Bonkers for wanting all those beautiful colors around you all the time by carrying the flowers around with you? Not I deary!! :)

Have a grand day!!

toodles!! xxxxx

I am in LOVE with Vera Amaryllis!! I have never seen one that color. What a beauty!!


just love the way your jumper matches your flowers xxxx


flowers are fabulous. Vera is/was gorgeous. Isn't it funny what chaos can follow when the Little People have absolutely definitely not done anything at all ?!

And I think men in general just don't get pretties. Their loss I say!


I love the flowers! I, too, have had fresh flowers in my house nearly daily this new year. A beautiful bouquet of white flowers, of all sorts, is in a milkglass vase on my nightstand right now. John makes sure I have flowers and I am a lucky girl. ~Kelly

Doesn't everyone cart their flowers round from room to room so their prettiness can be enjoyed from breakfast to bedtime? Not crackers at all, perfectly sensible!
Yours are lovely this week and the little bottles? well an entirely necessary sensible purchase. They were crying out for a good home and pretty flowers.

This is very odd, because I've just been at my parents for the weekend, and was looking at my old collection of glass bottles, and wondering what I could do with them. I couldn't think of anything, so they stayed where they were. Then I read your post, and I wish I'd brought them home with me.

Last time I went home, you posted the day after about flower brooches. Very strange.

The Antidote

What a beautiful post - I am particularly transfixed with your beautiful lines of shiny new white grout x hee hee x
The flower pics are lovely, especially the muscari x


Your lovely flowers cheered me up after what has been a traumatic couple of days in the smilernpb household (read my blog for more info). Thanks for the cheery photographs, which made me smile. Hugs.


Hi Lucy
you're lucky because in Italy a bunch of flowers at the supermarket is from € 5,00 to € 7,00(SCANDALOUS) . I love them too ,but sorry I can't afford .


Love your little jars. I just don't think (most) men 'get' how lovely things like that are. They really remind me of sea glass - that gorgeous aqua colour. Love your flowers too. I've been thinking about you carrying your flowers around (which I love by the way). Perhaps you could crochet yourself a sort of harness that you could wear around the house which holds a number of potted flowers? That way you could walk around enjoying your flowers, but have your hands free too? Just an idea - it could be your next crochet project! Lucy x


Beautiful post! I am going to have to pick up some flowers soon and put them in little individual vases. Thank you for the inspiration. :)


Hi Lucy
Such lovely pretty flowers, my hubby is useless with glass jars and jugs too,and flowers, and cushions, and pretty storage tins, I could go on!!! Felicity xx


You're not crackers or bonkers, you're just in love. In love with color. :~) Beautiful photos, Lucy. :~)
