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

ahh ~ you so love life! ~ you're a joy!


We always spend October half term in Yorkshire, where my Mum was born, and our favourite place is Runswick Bay. My Mum and Dad went on their honeymoon there and we have photos thru the generations of us sitting on the wall outside their cottage.

Oh, how beautiful! I just love these small "picturesque" English towns. It's so "not swedish".
Thanks for sharing it with us!!
Love from Anna xxx


oh just my favourite place on the Yorkshire coast, so so looking forward to our annual visit xxxx

It is always a good day when I see a new blog from attic24! Love the pictures and the words...you have a gift!


These photos are so lovely. Each one looks just like a postcard! That place IS impossibly beautiful - what a fantastic vacation!

Hi Lucy ... thank you for sharing these gentle, dreamy lifescapes from 'over there'. I am in Eshowe, KwaZulu-Natal, S.Africa. I chanced on your blog cos I love crochet, and am soon to start work on your bag pattern.Your colour work, inventiveness and industriousness (and your pootling around) just never fail to inspire!Jane

It's looks like a wonderland over there; keep the pictures coming. Makes our USA look so blah! With your blog, I can pretend that I'm there.


We are so lucky to live on a little island that has lots of little places to visit. We take so much for granted. Thank you thank you for sharing too!


Hello Lucy! The town looks lovely. It reminds me of Hastings Old town, with its little streets and cute cottages...

superbes paysages, quelle belle région ! je comprends ton goût des belles couleurs


Lucy, the bench in the seventh picture (in front of the cream house with the red door) needs one of your bright stripy or granny pillows! Many of your colors are present in that picture. Its such a lovely place, I so want to visit it one day. thank you for sharing this with us.

What a beautiful place. I can't explain it, but the way you describe your adventures and the things that speak to your soul are also the things that make my heart sing! I am so glad that I found your blog!!!! Thank you for your inspiration!

Dee Cox

Your pictures are so beautiful! I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now. After seeing these pictures I really want to visit these places!! Lovely!!


Oh Lucy dear, you make me want to sell all I have, pack my bags and move to England. What a wonderfully perfect life you live, much to my envy. Live...love...laugh.

Susan Mills

I've never been to the UK, never even been out of the US. I have so enjoyed your posts about connievan and your camping experiences with the family. Thank you for giving these glimpses of your life - now I definitely have to visit the UK. It all looks so lovely. And thank you for inspiring me to pick up a crochet hook again!


Just wanted to tell you I have included you in Greenkiddie.co.uk's challenge of 3 blogs I love! Hope you don't mind :D xxx


I love Staithes so much. Runswick Bay is worth a visit too.


Oh my god.....I absolutely love Staithes too, I go every year but we used to stay in Robin Hoods Bay but now get a cottage in Sandsend. The cafe in Staithes is fab, a must visit for me every year, the girl in there even knows my name!!!! Every time I look at your blog there is something that we have in common... I was at Runswick Bay last week, in a tent. I would so love to go and live by the sea.....one day perhaps!?!
Thanks Lucy for sharing your Staithes with me xx


Thank you for sharing this gem.
*sigh*....a place I would not have seen if you hadn't given me this lovely glimpse.


oh, I think there is nothing better than coffee cake and sea view.Thank you for this beautiful post!

Ah a little trip down memory lane. I love Staithes, it is so lovely and quaint.
Thanks for sharing.
