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.

What wonderful pictures!
I love your blog.


Gorgeous photos, thanks for sharing them. I love Craster, i live just down the coast and it's a good place for a nice day out pottering and eating crab sandwiches :o) looking forward seeing the rest of your pics.

My computer screen is rather bright (too much so at times) and it made that sunrise look so real!

My husband rather adores the ocean as well...he couldn't stand to live too far from a large body of water. It's so peaceful, breezy and sea gulls are among my favorite birds.

Thanks for sharing! :)


stunning photos again Lucy thanks for sharing

I loved Craster when i visited me and my family had some kipper n buns, the kippers from the smoke-house there! Northumberland is such a beautiful place i just love it, the sky just amazes me everyday up there!

What a wonderful lunchtime getaway for me today!!!
Thanks for showing us the beauty of your coast!


A sea junkie, I love that term! I love the sea too and you've got some amazing photos of it. A lovely place for childhood holidays :)

I love the sea as much as you I think, and seeing your pictures makes me want to go visit so badly, and I live by the ocean! But US beaches are not like northern European beaches (I grew up in Norway). At least I get to enjoy your wonderful pictures and stories! Absolutely lovely!


Wonderful photos. I wish I could paint those with the boats with cottages.
You should have no trouble with the Valerian seeds. In my garden they sprout up like mad and I have to pull out most of them.


My goodness! Those rainbow pictures are breathtaking! I've never seen such huge ones! They are astounding! Thank you so much for sharing them. I've had obsession with rainbows since I was young & I don't see them here much. I can't imagine seeing them that often and that HUGE! It would be awesome!

Bonnie Slager

Looks awesome Lucy! I love the rainbow's <3. I finished my crochet bag while you were gone, love it! And I am still working on your monsters, they have been a hot commodity lately!I never noticed your post on my blog until yesterday :( I need to check that more.

What a beautiful little town/village Driftwood is. All your pictures made me want to add it to our travel dream list. In fact, you blog has made England as a whole move way up on the list. Perfectly dreamy. The rock garden with flowers caught me eye. I've always loved to putter around a coast and collect many treasures. Sea glass is so simple, but oh so grand when put into a collection.

Can't wait for the next part... keep'm coming

It's such a joy to get to visit your part of the world (love, love your crochet too!).


I must say that I haven't been reading your blog for very long but I love how you enjoy the very simplist things. Reading your blog has helped me to do the same. To be happy with what I have and enjoy the moment. I'm glad you had a wonderful holiday with your family.


Calgon! Take me away to Craster!!! LOL!

Greetings from Pennsylvania on a crisp late summer day...Dear sweet Lucy...you have a way of capturing the beauty of little moments.Thank you for sharing. Your photos are lovely. The little unkept front gardens nearly broke my heart. And the sea...my favorite part of the summer is always the week I spend on Nantucket Island with my family. I bring back mementos from the natural world and they keep me close to those summer days for the rest of the year. Here is a poem by Mary Oliver for you:
I go down to the edge of the sea,
How everything shines in the morning light!
The cusp of the whelk,
the broken cupboard of the clam,
the opened, blue mussels,
moon snails, pale pink and barnacle scarred-
and nothing at all whole or shut, but tattered, split,
dropped by the gulls onto the gray rocks and all the moisture gone.
It's like a schoolhouse
of little words,
thousands of words.
First you figure out what each one means by itself,
the jingle, the periwinkle, the scallop
full of moonlight.

Then you begin, slowly, to read the whole story.

Emily V.

Feel like I've had a holiday with you after reading your blog today and drinking in the beautiful pictures and I'm not alone, am I? Thank you so much yet again. X


Your pictures are always so beautiful. What a beautiful place to take a holiday.


Hi Lucy, the pics are lovely. Can`t wait to see the rest. Will have a brew at the ready lol!

Looks like you had a stunning time. Been there myself and it's a dream!


Lucy, it is always such a delight to visit. I love the mix of photos you have chosen to give the flavour of your holiday and the happy story that they tell.


It' s so lovely that you are back and letting us to share your life!


Awwwww....and now my heart is 'squeezing' from the aching beauty of your seaside photos.


I can feel the holiday spirit, the weather and the saltiness of the sea when I am reading the post. The photographs especially of the sun rise in the horizon is too good...inspires me to a sky watcher too. The flower boat fascinates me no end. Wonderful!
