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

Hello,could I possibly get your pattern for the flower scarf? I would really like to try it.

Hello Lucy!, I've been reading you blog for a while now, I just had to say that I LOVE IT!!! Love your pictures, all the colors the little people and the baby!!!... Oh! and your new caravan!! Congrats!!


Oh Lucy! I can understand you! My little one is 7 month now and I still haven't time for nothing, my house is a messy mess too not to talk about me (I look like a homeless sometime) but I try to remain sane and enjoy my lovely little boy :)


I think I love your bed too ;-)))

Thank you for creating such a lovely space : )

I’d like to invite you to win a piece of my fine art through a giveaway on my blog.


I wish you all my best.



I've got so many unread magazines waiting for me by the sofa, but somehow I just never get round to them - now Easy Living has joined the pile! Thanks for the tip about the freebies :-D
I'm so, ridiculously, stupidly, looking forward to seeing the process of you decorating the caravan! The kettle is wonderful - it would look lovely sat next to a cheery Whittard teapot! x

I am now suffering from kettle envy !! do they have it in blue??? might have to see if I can fit one in my suitcase when I come over in Sept...never seen anything like this over here..we eithe have white plastic or stainless steel...

Ooh I must get some nice flowers too :) shop-market-home-grocery shopping-homework


You've just received a Beautiful Blogger Award xxx

You must be doing quite well to clear a space big enough to take the lovely photos and your bed looks ever so comfy :)
*Runs off to buy Easy living*


That bed does indeed look very inviting! I love your colourful cushions, I've a bit of catching up to do on the old crocheting front but I'll get there!xx


There is some similar stuff in Tesco, if you are interested, polka dots and vintage roses. Love your blog.

The cushion looks really nice. But the purple flowers... wow!!! Love that colour! Wonder if I can find that kind of flowers here...
Have a wonderful weekend!
Love from Anna xxx


How do you manage to find the most beautiful things? Loving your blog. Will miss it as we are off in our caravan for half term.


How lovely to see you again. Funnily enough I had been browsing through Country Living magazine and was trying to work out which pictures would appear on your post. I too indulged in Easy Living this month, lured in by the said bag. Mind you it has already been taken hostage by my daughter who also loves the bright summery prints.


Ooh, the purple flowers are so pretty, especially against the amazingly colorful hooky backdrop! You are right - you absolutely need that kettle and melamine - you and Connievan and the family, of course!


Your post made me laugh out loud!! We live in Mess too, piles of This and That everywhere...I tend not to look at it and pretend it might all Go Away By Itself!
Isn't that a lovely bag? And such gorgeous Outdoor Goodies, no wonder you splurged!! Have a gorgeous Bank Holiday!

Love Julia x


But hey, your flowers have a table all to themselves! In my house the flowers would be crammed on with a couple of plates, a few mugs, a newspaper, various pieces of mail, pens, a few balls of wool and a couple of crochet hooks which won't even be the correct size for any of the balls of wool. And I don't even have children to blame!


Bless Little B, I can't believe he's eating spoonfood already! Seems like only yesterday he was a teeny tiny newborn :-)
Your cushion is fab Lucy, it looks sooooo at home on your sofa with your other hooky goodness.
Lots of love, Heather xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx


I just LOVE your blog.

Thanks so much for sharing bits and pieces.

Tanne :)


What happiness Lucy - such lovely days you're having I do admire your refusal to feel draggy. I often feel draggy about the state of our house so it's a relief to know I'm not alone in fighting it and refusing to get het up about there still being dinosaurs in the bath, cars under the table, washing on the stairs etc.

How fabulous is your new cushion, ooooh I love that rather very much indeed.

But mosty I am jealoous - jealous of your beautiful stocks because I really want some and can't fid any. It was our wedding anniversary on Tuesday and every year I treat myself to a bunch of stocks to remind me of the delicious boquet I had full of them on our special day 8 years ago. But I haven't found a single one - anywhere! Thanks for sharing your beautiful blooms, I just wish there was a smell button to click.

Have a lovely Bank Holiday
love Stephxx
P.s. I think we're off in our caravan for the first time next weekend - yippee. Love your kettle.

glady and flo

Hello Lucy, just discovered your blog and wanted to say Hi! Born in the UK but now live in Melbourne Australia.I too am a huge fan of Cath's, love all her stuff. Also love all your beautiful granny squares.The colours you have chosen for your rugs and cushions are gorgeous!!! Im also so envious of you owning Connievan. I once had a little van that I decorated and had some wonderful times in - never named her though, I wonder why? Anyway look forward to more of your activities. Gailx
