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

Good for you for getting away for the day! That looks like a lovely place to hike and take a bit of a break.

Lovely photos!


Ah Lucy, you've got a good man there, taking the day off to be with you in the woods!

Your beautiful photos of those trees remind me to let you know that I have been to see, at the Pace Wildenstein Gallery on 57 St and 25 St, the concurrent exhibits of David Hockney's drawings and paintings done in the Yorkshire woods over the past few years.

I have always admired DH's drawing and printmaking, and some of his paintings. There are many paintings these exhibits that truly do make the visitor get a clue of what it might just be to be in those woods. Just like your posts.

Lucy, how can I send you pics of a wonderful shell garland that I saw at a beach house in New Zealand? I think you would love the painted and colorful nature of the children's work.

Just knowing you were in the Yorkshire Dales makes me very very happy...great fan of James Herriot...my my my...beautiful photos too! I am lovin' your blog...


What lovely beech leaves! They are so beautiful the way they grow in horizontal layers. I think it is my favourite tree. I remember being helpfully pushed up hills in Dorset with my big bump last September!


Nothing like a lovely "time out" with the one you love. Sounds like you had a wonderful day. Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos.


This entry made me :-)

I just love reading your posts. The crafty ones and just the simple, chatty ones about your walks in the woods, etc. I'm glad I found you. BTW, I lived in England as a tiny child, 1-5 years old, so reading your blog evokes some very deep-seated memories for me. Thank you.

Sounds like a great day out together for you both. Enjoy time together on your own whilst you can!
