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

Lucy loved your Mums home and really enjoy your blogs. I cant find any details of your hot water bottle cover and with Autumn on its way id love to make it! jackie


i really admire your mom house.i was searching for an image of 'cottage beside river' for my wallpaper and jumped here..if i were have chance to be there..:-)


I got to this post scrolling down the pages of your blog... As I had said many times so far, your blog is so much homely, cozy and cheering up! Wishing you and your family be happy always!!!
P.S. Ahhh.. and that "Esse" stove I got to know about now is my dream (after a fireplace);)


I am in love with England...and have been since our first trip in 1985...The green fields, the old villages and gardens...It's so beautiful.


Ah this post makes me super nostalgic (& very jealous) as my maternal grandparents lived in West Bay when I was a child.

My sister & I were blessed to be packed off to stay with them for the full 6-week summer school holiday & often the Easter break too as our Mum had to work.

Those times were so filled with love, excitement & so much joy that your beautiful photos bought wonderful memories flooding back.


Your mother's cottage is beautiful!!! I'm glad you enjoyed and got to have a little break.

Dear Lucy your photos were a delight; your words also. That cottage is wonderful! How lovely and cosy it looks. It reminded me of my Granny's
house in Christchurch near Highcliffe. As a child I thought I would meet the Famous Five on our long walks through woodland down to the beach.
It made me laugh when you said that you had taken out your camera to
photograph the meal because I did the same thing with the meal we had on Sunday.
I think you should write a column for Country Living magazine.
Busy sorting out clutter at my end, making some Christmassy stuff for school fair and hooking a crochet granny blanket.
So back to reality! Off to do a spot of housework and then have a cup
of tea. Enjoy your week.xx


What a beautiful journey. I felt like I was right there with you. I know what you mean about a wonderful escape.

It looks like you had a grand time!Good for you.Know just what you mean,glad for the quiet time and missing Them madly the next.Your Mums home is so lovely!Love the stove.My Dad has one but not as pretty:) Thanks for the tour and sharing your get away with us:)


Ah! It is bittersweet when we mothers of small children, used to juggling all the family things, get a few days to ourselves. Yes...you said it, it is liberating, but then lonely like something very important is missing (and it is) at the same time.
I LOVE the pictures of your mothers cottage. It looks wonderfully cozy! Just what I imagine a cottage in the English countryside should be. It is a hard thing to describe, that feeling we get when we are back in the neighborhood of our child memories.
Thanks again for sharing as you always do. It is always great hear about the life of someone, in a different part of the world, whom I find so much in common with.


Hi Lucy
Nice to hear that your Mum is much better, mothers are precious. What a delightful little cottage she has. I love the thick sills, just right for sitting and crafting on.


Morning. I can't even remember how I got onto your page, but LOVED traveling with you to your moms home from Kentucky, USA. Thanks for sharing. It's what we think English country is. Love your crochet work. Hope when I try to duplicate I do it justice.


Simplemente, maravilloso ¡¡ Gracias por compartirlo.


I'm off to Dorset for two days on Thursday and don't know the area at all. Chesil Beach, Bridport, Dorchester - but where else should we visit? Which country places? I have no idea. Any suggestions?


oh how i have missed seeing you, love your photos! thanks so much for sharing... another exciting happening to add to your long list of memories! so good to see you are doing well...


Mmm. Haloumi and roast pumpkin!!! Delicious. Once again you have captured the very essence of what you experienced and shared it with us. Thank you. I got to feel like I was travling the UK with you. :)
Thanks for sharing your Mum's cottage with us - it's so lovely. The garden looks so lush. It rather reminds me of parts of my childhood. :)


Thanks for sharing those pictures. I love looking at how other ppl live. I'm in Florida where it is so totally different. What a great little cottage your mum has. And so happy for you that you got to visit.


I apologize me for the errors, I am using a translator web.
From when I have met your blog, looking for a cover to the crotchet hook, I am knowing through your photos and your pleasant stories, so many beautiful places that probably I would never have known. Seem me to know you for a long time!
Very pleasant your mother's house, however they miss the colors of your covers!


Lovely photos - and a great tour of your mum's wee cottage :-) Glad to hear she is doing well.


Wow what an absolutely cracking house! So so beautiful and that fireplace?!!
I know what you mean about living by the sea. I moved to the coast 9 years ago after living inland for over 30 years and there's no way D or I would move away from the sea now. I love the way the light and the clouds constantly change and the smell of salt and seaweed in the air. My only complaint would be that sea air and curly hair do not make the best look!

Love and stuff xx


Thank you for sharing with us. I love your Mom's cottage, it is beatuiful. So glad you have a good time.


Lucy your post is beautiful, I loved it.Greetings from southern Spain.

Hi again Lucy so sorry! I was trying to change my web/blog address in the your info section where we comment and it disappeared but seems to have ended up in my comment to you! Please feel free to remove - I don't seem to be able to! (am totally rubbish at this!) x


A spot in front of that stove does look cozy indeed. I can only imagine the hours your mother must spend in front of it, all snuggled up. Does she crochet too?
