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

Cards and postcards are your own private art collection! I love those images... thanks for sharing. Night night dear Lucy, hope you get lots of sleep xx


I've been thinking of you so much today! a friend of mine push me into blogland... it was something that have been flying around my thoughts lately... so I'm diveing in it now, and you can guess that your blog was a great inspiration for that!
It's not ready yet, I'll let you know.
Sweet dreams!

I, too am a member of the card-hoarder club. But really, there are things much worse to pack about; things that take up space, require dusting or big boxes for storage. Wait... I collect those thing too. :)
I hope that your dreams are sweet, and that you get adequate time to enjoy them!


Where ever I have lived I too had cards, post cards and painted cards stuck up on the walls. Cards from family and friends a long way away, reminding me of home or places I'd like to visit. Thanks for reminding me, I'll have to dig out my stash and flip through some more memories.

I can see why you have held on to the patchwork bed card, bedrooms can be the most comforting and inspiring places (and so can those cards).



I remember my Dad coming to visit when my daughter was about four weeks old and he said, "I'm tired I was up at 6am this morning". I remember just staring at him just thinking "!?£$%&*?!"
I, like you, need my bed, my sleep and my peace and quiet. Unfortunately I don't get much of any of them :)
Lovely card pictures, I really love that last one, just beautiful.


Looks like everyone will be having sweet dreams!!!!


Sweet dreams,

Kali @ Poppy Lane

hmmm, you're sure to have sweet dreams in such a dreamy bed!
I am the same too with cards...collecting them unintentionally, just because they're little pieces of beauty and sentiment :)

Bedtime here too. Doesn't that lady look so peaceful sleeping under her quilt? I hope that's me in a few minutes! Hope you have a restful night with no more than your accustomed quota of baby-needs. I always find that I can cope with disturbed nights as long as it's only the same level of disturbance as normal. Once you get used to something better it's a nightmare to go back! Sweet dreams!


I am like you, I have stacks of cards both bought and recieved but all stashed away in boxes and bags just ocassionally taken out and stroked. I have now started selling Phoenix cards, which just totally feeds my card addiction and earns me a wee bit of money on the side. Hope you are having a wonderful (undisturbed) sleep.

Hi Lucy, I have been a fan of your blog since May 09, when my daughter introduced me to the wonderful world of blogs, Attic 24 is my absolute fav! and I pop in most days for a looksee. I was off work for 4 months last year with my arms that suddenly decided they were overworked! 4 months without knitting , chrochet , gardening, etc housework too! and couldn't hold a book, the longest 4 months of my life!!!..........however there was a very bright spot in every day when i popped into the attic. THANKYOU THANKYOU! i am fine now and back into the hooky etc. Congrats on the newest little attic member he sounds adorable.
kind regards Karen


Have a night of deep sleep filled with lots of lovely dreams.

When I did the baby thing with my firstborn (many, many years ago) I used to feel resentful and lonely as if I was the only one awake and desperate for sleep. I know better now and I tell new Mums that they are not alone, just part of an invisible network of Mums all doing the same thing and I hope they take comfort from that. My husband also used to prepare a Thermos with a milky drink and a pile of biscuits before going to bed himself and that definitely helped. Congratulations on winning the Olympic thingy, because you surely did! x

I'm the opposite! I don't sleep a lot. Love the last picture, though-she looks sooo comfy.

P.S. Shameful use of comments for promotion of Knit-a-long on blog alert!!!!


Have lovely dreams Lucy, Amanda x


Night, night !!

When my first born was a baby and i was up feeding her in the middle of the night (husband snoring next to me, grr) i used to look through the crack in the curtains and see lights on in neighbours houses at 1,2 in the morning. I remember thinking why don't you people just go to bed? Are you mad? I have always loved my bed....guess i always will! Sweet dreams x


That lady in the bottom card looks like she has had FAR too much sleep. No fair!
