I'm visiting your blog for some times now but I never wrote a note to say I much love it ... and today I see our pics of Bolton Abbey - reminding so found memories of the time when I was a student in Leeds so I thought to drop a note to say how fantastic it is to come up to the Attic

Oh how I love the history of Abby's and their grandness. Which I was closer to be able to visit one more often. Kind of hard to do from the middle of the United States (Kansas).


Dear Luce...
If I had this at my backdoor
I would be visiting every chance I had too...
Just so beautiful...
I remember seeing sites like this in books when I was young and dreaming of how amazing it would be to see them...
You are very lucky indeed...
And love that you finished your day with a bit of gardening...
just love pottering in the garden...Or is it the buying new pretty plants that I like the most...Hmmmm.Maybe both....

Lori French

Absolutely delightful pics, as always. BTW, you've been awarded on my blog! Come and take a look, L xxx


Hi Lucy - just a quick note to say Happy 2nd Blogaversary :-) Been reading looking through your archives for inspiration and noticed your first post was 12th March 2008!


Hi Lucy, Great post....sooooo nice to get out and about! The flowers are a great addition and so reminding of what's to come. I'm a true believer in filling up the most used rooms with lovelies!!
Just got back from Florida and Mickey Mouse with my granddaughters....OH so special! AND great flowers there. Take care, Robbie


Such a treat of a post today. Love all the colors, the gray stone. Beautiful!

Melinda Jackson

We've had some lovely sunny days over here in Lancashire too. Looking at your first photo reminded me of how dull post-snow grass appears now. It's as though it has been crushed by the snow and frost. Just waiting for the new shoots to appear!

oh my what lovely photos! spring is springing! thanks for sharing all your pretties...visit me on the farm sometimes...farmandfrufru.blogspot.com


You are such a good mama to let your little girl do it all on her own. I don't know that I could have stopped myself from interfering! It is a beautiful basket of springtime goodness!

Linda Gilbert

Wonderful,just wonderful. I think the baskets just perfect

Anna-Karin, Sweden

Oh, how beautiful your flowers are!! We still have so much snow. I'm really tired of it now! But, when I saw your flowers, it gave me hope, that spring soon will come here too :)
Thanks Lucy!!!
Love from Anna xxx


It looks like a gorgeous day - Bolton Abbey is very pretty isn't it! This weather makes you want to dash outside doesn't it? I love this time of year when the season is on the turn - to celebrate Im having a bit of a giveaway on my blog, if you get a chance, do come visit!

Sending love

What lovely pictures, I loved going to Bolton Abbey as a kid, and can't wait to take my children there.
A little tip with that pushchair is to fill the tyres with orange/green gloop you get for bikes tyres, that way if you get a puncture your wheels won't go down.
Great pram, beautiful scenery.x.


Hi Lucy

I've been following your lovely blog for a while now but have decided to 'step out of the shadows' and say hello! I've just lost my lovely father-in-law so I'm sure my emotions are running wild but I've logged on to Attic24 throughout the difficult last 3 months and never failed to come away without a smile. Thank goodness for people like you! Keep up the good work! Frustratingly I am a knitter and can only swoon with delight at your granny squares and the like. I have tried and failed to teach myself crochet. Maybe you could run a workshop one day?
Much happiness to you and your family J xxx

love the photos of your old abbeys and the primrose are beautiful. Our tulips, daylilies and daffodils are all poking through the ground.


Lots of lovely colour around. Our garden is full of daffs and crocus - the effort of last autumn paying off.I am so ready for GREEN


Dear Lucy. About time to let you know that I do visit you regularly and thoroughly enjoy your creativity and lovely writing even though I am not so good at leaving a comment. But I do wish to congratulate (even though it is very belated) you with a lovely new baby boy. And I wish to thank you for including me on your link list, as I get quite a few new readers who tell me they found my blog through yours. And I am a bit envious of your lovely spring weather. Yes, we do have lovely weather too, but spring...no! There is plenty of snow still, and to share. I wonder when we will be able to see green grass again, not to mentions snowdrops and daffodils. Do enjoy and do take care.


It's all so lovely! I can almost smell the air. Your Primula are beautiful.
Thank you for sharing the countryside walk.

Sarah G

Lucy - I know you must be super busy, but I am really hoping you have the time soon to post a tute about the lovely hearts you made. Pretty, pretty please? We all need some crochet heart love!


I do love it when you talk about Yorkshire, it makes me home sick and happy in equal measures!

Cate, x
