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

Your blog has become my go-to resource for all things related to TV stands! I've already found several options that caught my eye. The detailed descriptions and pros and cons of each stand have been incredibly helpful in narrowing down my choices. Keep up the fantastic work

Loving the impulse buy & the colour is just heavenly! Could you not create little covers for the knobs from crochet...?! Then it would feel right at home! :) x

Wow! I'm glad you bought it. It looks perfect in your home. Actually it didn't look as if it's old. Gorgeous!

The cabinet is so cute! Perfect for a shabby chic interior design. I think it can also be good to color it with grey.

That chest drawer is rocking! The color is perfect for your space, and it's nice that you used it to hold your TV, making it a good space-saver. My daughter will definitely love your little pink lamp.

When the comparison begins between buying new furniture vs. buying used furniture, it is understood that new furniture wins anybody’s attention in the first go. Thanks for proving such a helpful blog.

Its cool seeing photos of how you were able to incorporate old furniture such as the blue dresser into your living room. What kind of repairs did you have to do in order to make them useable again?

Nice furniture ! Thanks for posting and sharing.

Great post. Your designs are very creative. What I love the most about your design especially your chair.

Your new desk looks lovely. I also love the chest of drawers! And there's the pretty striped jug of flowers on the table, too! What a colorful feast for the eyes!

Gerry Bossier

Just looking at the first picture, I was easily attracted to that chest of drawers, so I really can't blame you if you've acquired it. That's really a great find!


Your blog is beautiful, I have made your granny stripe blanket for both double and single beds, and have just tested out if I could make a japanese flower (so my next project is to make a japanese flower shawl), your japanese flower shawl is fab. I love reading your blog and looking at your lovely pictures you post :) x


Dear Lucy,

You're a tremendous inspiration to all those mothers who have forgotten themselves in their family life.

u clearly show that one can have a successfull family as well as pursue their own interests too.

I visited ur blogs just few weeks ago and have been since going thru it regularly.

I have a query to you,my grandmother used to knit using one knitting needle and a crochet,a combination of both.

Do u have an idea how to do this?

Thanks for all the information u have provided.

Take care !



I've been on this page before BUT I REALLY LOVE THE COLOURS....IT CHEERS ME UP SO MUCH X Thank you

Having a pink lamp on your table looks so sweet! I like it very much.

Sevenoaks Furniture

Great choice... Also I love the chair just beside your table.. That's so colorful...

formal furniture

I love your blog. I'm passionate textiles and designs though i have no formal training in either. I'm hoping to change that by subscribing to your blog :)


I thought I recognised the photos of the area, but it only clicked when I saw the castle (mum lives in the same place). It's a great castle, I went there as a child, the only thing I remember though is the toilet that drops everything into the canal below, with just a net in case you fall down!!


Love your new furniture!!

Tiffany Blue (although less poshly I call it duck egg blue) is also one of my all time favourite colours!! We have it all over the house!!

I think if you can find some cheaply, crystal knobs would look superb!!



I love your new old furniture - the colour of the turquoise chest of drawers is gorgeous and perfect for the TV. And the little desk is so pretty - having a desk of your own makes your feel much more organised I always think!

Such a gorgeous chest Lucy. I love the stories old furniture tells! We used an old dresser in our new kitchen and it looks just perfect! Oh and the colour of that chest is beautiful.

Gloria J Wellington

Lovely desks, both of them Lucy... you can always find a space and use for beautiful things!!
Hugs Gloria
