About Me

  • Hello! 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

Off to make some now look delicious! Thanks Lucy :D x


I can NEVER just have 1, I always have at least 3, accompanied by feelings of guilt and an urge to have another.....No wonder my jeans are too tight!


Made these with my 3yo yesterday afternoon. All gone by this morning (including the three rather odd ones baked directly in the tray as I ran out of paper cases). Thank you :).


Oh dear, I'm all alone with some elderly bananas...no-one to help out with the eating...HELP!!!


Some of my most dearly loved and special people in my life have Bithdays all squashed from the 12th to 15th of September so Happy Birthday and hope all is blooming and well with you !


Ooow Lucy
Thank you for a splendid bun recipe!
I am not a good baker, as a general rule it all goes pear shaped ...
... but I have just baked up a batch of these and they are scrummy - must be the excellent recipe, instructions and photo

Inga Helene

Oh, they look so yummy! I wanna taste!!!!!!!! :-)

I've posted pics of the arctic pillow in my blog. I think it will be great!

Have a nice day!!!!

Caroline W

these muffins look yummy, I make banana and pecan bread all the the time but my kids won't even taste it, might try your recipe and see how it goes down, thanks for shariing it. By the way, belated happy birthday


Oh torture! my daughter has just been put on a sugar and wheat free diet to try and sort some tummy problems she's been having. I so want to make these, but will have to squirrel it away for another time :)

sounds really yummy anda I am sure it would be great for any sad looking banana... thanks for sharing

Anna-Karin, Sweden

It sounds and looks yummie! Your last two lines (Eat two more to "make sure" of the recipe before sharing it :: optional but recommended) are wonderful :)
Love Anna xxx


The look absolutely delicious. I will try them out instantly and shop for ingredients (and put off my intended diet for this weekend ;-) )


oh my, they look so delich..


Those black, squishy bananas always make the best banana cakes, bread or muffins - the flavour and fragrance are so much stronger. Yummo!

Cheers - Joolz

little pink room

mmm. these look amazing! I must try them out. A x


Yummy - must find bananas shopping today, I have the choc bits


Oh so yummy-looking! I love adding a bit of nutmeg in my baked banana goodies, especially in the fall.
And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Lucy (a bit late, but better then never.) Enjoy your well deserved baked goodness!

Just added a new little forest friend of mine to cheer you up with those muffins. I'm seeing the strangest things in trees this year...

He wants a taste of the banana delight.

Add some new fun music and band that I just found today.


Cheers and Hug a cup of cocoa with that muff.

Mmm...I was naughty today and ate some caramels. I do believe I could sit and eat them indefinitely if allowed to...

Halfway Crafter

I do love a nice banana and choc chip cupcake! Although it's funny, I don't normally like bananas!


Hi Lucy - I was wondering... Could we see a picture of your attic inside? I'd love to see inside it. Where you put your computer? Your desk (if you even have one??) Maybe you've already shown it? It would be so fun! xoxoxoo Jennifer in Boise Idaho


These look amazing. Thank you for sharing


Might have to have a go at those - have already make chocolate muffins, cherry buns and a lemon drizzle cake this week though.


Hallo Lucy,
I am certainly going to try these :) And i also read your "birthday-post" so many congratulations for you; and you know what ?! Last summer we were in Yorkshire and i have been in that beautiful little shop in Grassington !!!!! Isn't that fun... was the cat having a nap on the counter ?
Have a nice evening, Janneke.
