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

Hi Lucy, fab post as always. Am so glad your Mum is continuing to improve :-) I love that she has a secret garden at her cottage and that toasty little stove is adorable!




This is my beautiful neck of the woods and I always photograph my meals too! :)


There's no place like home, be it your own or someone elses. Your family live in a beautiful place. It's good to read that mum is doing so well and healing nicely.


Little B and Grandpa B, do they share name or is it a coincidence? That wave/beach picture was lovely.


Glad you enjoyed your little break Lucy, a few days break is always a welcome time to recharge and how nice to spend quality time with your parents. It must be such a relief to see your mum back to health after such a worrying time. Lovely pictures as always, take care, K xx

What a lovely post, you have a fantastic way with words, I love that little cottage.

I want to live in your Mum's house. It looks so cosy and unspoilt! I saw a similar house for sale in the Ulverston area and must say it reminded me of something. I know now it was the previous photos you have shown of your Mum's cottage. Is the cottage safe from flooding from the river?

Loved your aerial photos. Next time try taking photos a good few miles from landing, see if you can see the shadow of the plane on the ground. Keep taking pictures, following the plane's shadow getting larger. I did it by accident and the last shot was great, it was in the local paper.

The cafe is just my favourite type - happy, colourful and unpretentious!

So glad to hear that your mum is well. All the photos are amazing, thanks for sharing!


I love, love, love your mum's cottage. I felt like I was really there, and soo would have loved to be.

I'm glad that your mum is doing well.


What gorgeous photos of your trip, Lucy. I LOVE your mum's cottage -- the picture in front of the fire is oh-so-cozy. Glad you were able to get away and get home safely.


how lovely! love your mum's cottage, so warm and cozy and pretty! Thanks for sharing your little journey!


Oh, your language and the way you express yourself make me miss England. I am a Texan who now has a son, daughter-in-law and a grand daughter (+ another grand daughter on the way) in Thetford. We visit England as often as we can. Thank you for the delightful posts! And your crochet designs are brilliant!


Your mum's home looks lovely, I'm so glad she is felling better. How nice that you could have a few days away.


your mum's place is beautiful, such an amazing place to grow up in. i wish i grow up in such a nice place like that, so much greenery around and i bet there is never a dull moment! glad you enjoyed your little break and glad to hear you mum is better.


Love this post. Everything really beautiful. And of course the best is your family cottage. So much to see in this world and so little time and money. Thanks for the pictures it is a nice way of knowing other places. I am glad you enjoyed your family reunion. For me family is most important.


Like your Dorset posts best of all - possibly my favouritest part of Britain. Glad your mum is doing so well.


Wow. Beautiful Lucy - lucky duck!


I always feel like I've been on the most delightful trip when I read your lovely posts on Dorset. And I absolutely adore your tour of "Mum's cottage." I have to read that again. Such quiet charm and the warm Esse... I just love it.


que hermoso e increible lugar, me encantan las zonas rurales :)

Thank you for your lovely photos!


Oh Lucy! As always you have lifted my spirits up! Your pictures are beautiful! I am so happy that you had time to R&R but I missed you here!
I wanted to thank you for your ripples tutorial. I followed it to make my baby blanket and it came out just perfect.
You are the best! Welcome back!

So grateful to be able to enjoy this with you.
Julia Crossland's paintings remind me of Dorset, guess that shows how good she is!
Love all the photos of your Mum's cottage and that beautiful stove/heater...it looks like a postcard!

Yes… family is a divine treasure! glad it was fun!
I am off to Madrid soon and that is a nice short flight. I am off with my eldest, nice time "mum and son".
I fly to Chile quite often and that is a looong fight, not pleasant (unless you are in first class, of course!). 20 hour flying plus all the extra hours going to the airport and waiting at the airport. Add that 2 children! Jajaja.... still, Is Chile in the end and that is a perfect place! :P
Regards, saludos. :D


Must have been good taking a trip home under nicer circumstances, glad your mum is doing well now. I too get mocked for taking photos of my food, everywhere we go. However, not when i'm with my mum as she does it too!! x


OMG!!! those pics are simply awesome and i dreamed about being there too!!!
