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

Thank you so much for this post, Lucy. Your blog is always an inspiration. Greetings and good wishes from Germany, Tabea


And so say all of us! Wonderful posts petal. Your reasons for reading the blogs are exactly mine - the 'little' things in life. Have a cracking weekend.

Love and stuff



the flowers look gorgeous! hope i spot something just as colourful this weekend.


So nice to hear and see that someone else like me also enjoy the little pleasure of life!! When I walk the streets early morning and a stranger says hi to me, or a child give me a big smile......really, that can make my day!!!! Early springflowers in my garden; the birds in the big tree near my window. It all brings a smile to my face. And like you I do love colour so much. I drive my husband crazy sometimes, haha! In half an hour I'm going to a very, very big craftfair with my friend. You'd enjoyed it there! Have a very great weekend Lucy!!!
Love from Holland, Marja.


oh I love that you notice the sky, especially such a beautiful one like you have snapped on the camera. Holding hands with my boys is pure heaven. I love that even tho my eldest is 8, he still by choice, grabs my hand as we walk through the shops or along the beach. Have a wonderful weekend at your place.

Yes indeed, you have hit the nail right smack dab on the head!! Some people go through life and never even see these things.


I just love your blog! You always bring a smile to my face. You highlight those small wonderful moments that make life truly rich when we appreciate them.


I am loving sharing your life at the moment. I am working my way through your past posts (currently reading August 2008) to catch up! Your photos are wonderful and I love the little snippets of your life.
Keep posting, we all love it!


Have a wonderful weekend!

Dear Lucy,

I look forward to reading your blog. It is one of my "little pleasures", and you have inspired me to have a more positive outlook, learn to crochet -- ahem not as easy as you make it look -- and to start blogging.

Thank You

Beautiful post! It says it all.


Lovely reminder that the best things in life are free and are all around us, if we take a pause to notice them.

Even though it's freezing here today, just reading this post warmed me right up!

Enjoy your weekend!


Funny how the "cost nothings", littlist, simple, everyday things bring the HUGEST amount of pleasure.
Having love and joy in your heart makes you the richest.

Dear Lucy sunset down here beautiful. Thursday warm and sunny with clear blue sky just right for a walk and a tidy up in the garden. Sister visiting and stopping overnight. Grown up son arriving home for the weekend unexpectedly. All the best things in life are free!!! Have a great weekend.x


Nice post...I always say a walk outside is the best free gift you can give yourself or someone else, the sights and sounds are all free. Vicki xx

Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing. Once again, it's lovely to be able to enjoy some little pleasures amongst all the crazy, awful things that are happening in the world at the moment.


Nothing to complain about the freebees!
I love it and so true!
Love the last pic the most .Love in the purest form!!
Thank you Lucy.


Pretty flowers! Speaking of which, I have been making a Japanese Flower Scarf (who hasn't!) and am really liking it so far (pictures on my last blog post). Just to say thank you for posting the links to the patterns. I love how, despite using the same basic pattern, all scarves turn out completely different depending on the tastes of the person crocheting it.


You are such an inspiration to me!!! Thank you for charing your own inspiration and passion for colours and hand-making! Thank You! TT


LOL. Great post.
