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

I've been following your blog quietly for a little while, from just across the channel. :)
I love it, as a fellow crocheter and as a Mom.
Blessings to you and yours.

It has been a long and stressful day so I do my usual destresser and visit Attic24. You can't imagine how often your lovely words, photos, and creative handwork have soothed, delighted, taught, and inspired my soul. Thank you. Thank you from Williamsburg, Virginia, USA.


Thanks for sharing your beautiful walk!

Beautiful post. I also stack rocks into towers here on the other side of the pond. On an island called Block Island where I vacation every year. I also find beach glass on the shores of the beaches that are near me...Atlantic City, Ocean City, Cape May, New Jersey.


They will remember. Or snippets at least. Of the love and sense of family definitely if not all the details.

We just had a similar conversation in our home. We have our grands several days a week. Weekends mostly. And live in such a lively part of New England wonderful places for short visits and picnics and free play. I'm hapoy to hear we are all thinking alike!


Beautiful! I would love to know where exactly this bridge was, I live very close to the River Whafe and know it well (played by the River in Ilkley as a child)and would love to take my children to this bridge.

Oh Lucy - the aqueduct between the Strid and Barden Bridge - you gave me such an incredible pang of homesickness like you would not believe - have just booked our summer holidays to Holland to suss out universities for our son - so much of me wishes I'd booked the Dales instead - thank you so much for sharing your photos are a joy and a delight


I always love your north yorks posts as I love that area so much, but all the more so as we were only up there last week - finishing up in Betty's in Ilkley for morning coffee with friends. It was a wrench to leave, so really lovely to see your photos. There's something about the rivers up there, wide and flat with little beaches, sheep (sheep and more sheep!) with the dramatic hills behind, and, of course, the dry stone walls!
Have you shown the kids the money trees at Janet's Foss yet?? Lovely little walk with fabulous wild garlicky woodland. Lush. :)

One day we'll move back home ... one day!


Hello, Lucy! It's a pleasure to read your posts. When I read them I feel someone in England lives the similar peacefull and simple life like me.
Greeting from CZ, Tuutiki


Nice pictures and I love the english nature!


With all that is going on in the world, and my own life today, I was feeling a bit overwhelmed. I paused for a minute and thought, "I need to go visit Lucy in the Attic, and get some Lucy cheer." And it worked! Thank you for sharing your beautiful life with us all, this family outing reminded me of what is important in life - family, and enjoying the simple ordinary times we get to spend together, as well as enjoying the natural beauty of our surroundings. I feel like my mind has been reset on what I should be focusing on and my eyes have been opened up to the beauty of my own life - imperfect and messy as it is :) You have refreshed my day! Thank you!

Sounds like you had a lovely morning, thanks for sharing. I'm having a giveaway over on my blog if you want to hop over, x


Hi, those are wonderful photos, nice that you show them unto us.
I live in Germany, near the Rhine River and we often walk along the Rhine, it is interesting in every season. Last autumn, the riverbed of the Rhine was almost dried up and the whole marine came to a halt. The boatmen had thereby great financial losses.
On my blog, you can see where we go practically walk on the "ground" of the river photos.
I greet you warmly in Germany

Hi, this is very lovely pictures of your trip. Thank you to show us. I live in Germany ind near our major river Rhine and we are also very often a walk on the Rhine, which is beautiful in all seasons beautiful. on my blog you can see photos, than the Rhine last autumn was almost dried up under the older posts. It was a hundred-year event. the waterway had big losses.
Greetings from Germany Ute


Thank you for sharing your outdoorsy outing with us, very relaxing.


Hi Lucy, for two years now I am following your blog. You teatched me how to chrocet (thank you so much for your great tutorials!) and your journals about your family make me very happy! Enyou it all! Before you know your little people are grown ups! Greeting from Antwerp!

They will remember. My childhood was outdoorsy. We camped and fished and my mother would take us for walks and point out flowers and birds.......
I'm old now - but I remember - and it all had a very positive impact on my life and my attitudes. Your children may not remember details, but they will hang on to moments and they will always have the aura of these days about them. You and J are giving your little one's the best presents ever.


Lovely narrative; great photos - I just love your blog ... oh yes, your little ones WILL remember these times Lucy. My own DS is 35 now but he still stops me short sometimes when he brings up a long forgotten memory of happy family time from his childhood. I am so grateful that he does cherish those moments - I hope they might make a stressful workday just a bit more bearable for him. They will always be there in that little memory palace, even when we are both dust and the memories are all he has left...nothing can take them away; and that is so of your own family, too.


Thank you for taking me along on your family adventures. Your children will bring memories back to you when they are older. It happened to me and I was floored by the emotional jolt of joy and motherly pride. You are an amazing mother and I feel so lucky to know you, even in only a bloggy way. Again, Thank You.

A wonderful family time,memory making,thanks for sharing.(l-o-v-e that bridge!)The trips down by the water for me has been swarm catching,lol.By far,yours are more relaxing!


As someone who was dragged out for a weekend walk, come rain or shine, by my enthusiastic, outdoorsy parents, let me tell you that YES, they will remember and they will love you for it. I look back on those walks with love and appreciation, even though I moaned at the time. You are lucky to live in such a beautiful corner of Yorkshire though - I a quite jealous! x


Oh river glass!Wonderful!AriadnefromGreece!

Dear Lucy - Your post reminded me of this:
"...Never in his life had he seen a river before - this sleek, sinuous, full bodied animal, chasing and chuckling, gripping things with a gurgle and leaving them with a laugh, to fling itself on fresh playmates that shook themselves free, and were caught and held again. All was a-shake and a-shiver - glints and gleams and sparkles, rustle and swirl, chatter and bubble. The Mole was bewitched....." Wind in the Willows


how lovely and I recognise your location as I did the whole walk, from one to the other and back, for the first time recently :)


Another lovely read - thank you for sharing little bits of you and your family x
