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 tree looks gorgeous! Such a lovely design. I love that owl! The glasses suit.


hi Lucy, Your decs are fab !! But what else can we expect from someone with your great use of colour and composition .Glad your happy with your second Angel, it is nicely balanced out now.You have also inspired me to keep my twigs up and maybe make a changing seasonally themed feature of them. Happy New Year, see you soon Tracy X .


I dont think there is a photo in this entire post i dont LOVE and want to pin onto my pinterest boards.


Thank you Lucy for taking time out of your busy kiddy schedule to share with us your beautiful decorated colored home. Candy to my eyes.
Merry Christmas from the USA.


Hi Lucy - I've just posted my ripple update so pop over if you have time. Glad your Xmas was special ... making those memories when the Little Ones are still little is SO important both for them and for you! How is the Little Man? Better now? I too had heart palpitations as presents were opened....it's definitely a 'mum' thing as DH wasn't nervous at all!!! Best wishes for 2012. x

Your decorations look amazing, especially the twiggy getup. Maybe I'll try that next year myself. Really your a cheery inspiration...


Beautiful decorations lucy belated Happy Christmas. jane x


I love your decorations! I have twigs and holly in a beautiful green vase, they are really stunning but I also do like your baubles so much.


Wishing you a wonderful Christmas and New Year with family & friends. I just started following your blog a few months ago, but it's now one of my favourites. I'm a knitter, but I am going to try my hand at crocheting or 'hooky'. Happy holiday wishes from Ottawa, Canada!

P.S. When you say 'The City', do you mean London even though you live in the north of England? Places are so much farther apart here in Canada! LOL


Beautiful,as always so much lovely colour.

So glad you had a little time to yourself:)))
Hoping your all well


I'm a regular reader of your lovely blog and have just caught up on the past few entries as I have been looking after a poorly sister lately and no time to myself. What a fabulous post- Christmas treat to see all you lovely photos and share your news. Many thanks for giving us all such a special insight into your world. Keep it up! May you and your family have a lovely 2012.
PS - Recently finished my first wavy blanket and I LOVE it. I'm now off to start a crochet bag to keep my ever-growing stash under control. Thank you so much for the patterns and the inspiration for both.


Sparkly and beautiful, hope you've had a good time (in your jammies! We all got new ones on Christmas Eve too!) lots of love and festive sparkle right back at you xxx


Merry Christmas! I Loved the festive feel this time around! Hope your Christmas was just as bright and Cheery as you'd hoped!


all your Photos are lovely but I love your twigs and baubles, they look like coloured rain drops.


What a beautifully festive house you have...hope your Christmas was full of surprises x


Love the "Twinkle" of it all in all your pictures, and home-celebrations!
Best regards!

Thank you for sharing your beautiful Christmas home. Love the mantel and Mr. Penguin!!
Wishing you a hip-hop-happy New Year!!

Trudy McLauchlan

Love Mr. Penguin, don't think I could have resisted him either! And your mantel is worthy of a WOW!! Wish our fireplaces hadn't been ripped out of our old house before we moved in. I've always dreamed of decorating a mantel.
Wishing you a hip-hop-happy New Year!!

Your House is lovelly and in fact you are a real crafter. Your angel and Christmas tree, are different but not less nice, on the contrary, quite creative!!!

Hope your 2012 will be even better, for you and nice family.
Kiss you,

Gena Resende
