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

I too live in the NE England and your pictures have me enthralled. I must say you've inspired me to try my hand at crochet patterns as I've crocheted for years and only stick to the same things usually granny squares!


Such beautiful pictures!
I love your rain boots. Could you share where you got them with me?


Thank you for sharing your walk. It looks absolutely beautiful!

Joanne Retzler

Yes, i felt like i was there walking. I love walking out. xxoo. JO


Oh I'm so happy I saw this post. Thank you for sharing your walk. It reminds me so much of my time living in Mytholmroyd (nr. Hebden Bridge) a few years ago. I loved my Autumn/Winter strolls very similar to yours. What a joy! I keep promising myself a visit back up there.

Seaweed & Raine

Ahh. Laneways, castles and reflections. What a fabulous walk! I wish we had old castles in Australia. What is the name of the castle?


What beautiful pictures, loving your storytelling, thanks !


Glorious walk...and you're wearing my favorite boots too!


Thank you so much for the beautiful walk. It brought back so many pleasant memories from our visit to Skipton. Diane from Ohio

Jenn in Kansas

L- I think you said once you had a friend who lived in one of those picturesque house boats. Can you give us a glimpse sometime? Your walk looks absolutely magical. Happy fall A24!


Thank you for the lovely walk...The castle, what's the name of it, I wonder?


What a delightful day for taking a delightful walk! Stunning reflections. You do live in a beautiful part of the world.

A beautiful walk. Next time husband goes to the Skipton Auto Jumble at the Cattle Market, I will come along for the ride and mooch around the town/canal and maybe explore the castle.

Before visiting Yarndale I had only ever been to Skipton on the way to the Yorkshire Dales, on the bike so never had time to see much. It's tempting me to stay overnight and see more.


Oh! That was just so lovely. Thanks.

Mary Nolan

love that you share even the most simple parts of life....an afternoon walk....so lovely!


What a beautiful walk! xo


What a wonderfull walk! Wish we lived near such a place!


I loved the walk. Oh I could almost smell the scents of dry leaves, wet ground and brisk Autum air. What a wonderful delightful experience. Your enjoyment of daily walks reminds me to get out and walk my own neighborhood. Not just for the much needed exercise but also for the reminder of the everyday blessings that I am often too busy to appreciate! Thank you Lucy for sharing! Lynn

thanks so much for the walk! I'm stuck in CA (too hot) with a cold (too runny). what you shared is so magical and enchanting-- MADE MY DAY!!!!


I love how you savor (and recognize) the important things in life. So much beauty all around us, and so many people don't even see or "experience" it. I'm the same as you, savoring every moment of the wonderous things around me. Not as nearly as pretty as your walk, but here's one that Denny and I did last Saturday evening in Menlo Park, CA. We made 3 new friends too:


Then there was this walk a couple weeks ago. Perry the donkey was the model for the Shrek donkey in the animated film:


And this walk a week ago (Stanford University at night):


I don't presently have a blog, so thought I'd share with you this way.

BTW, here in the States, Halloween is a very big deal, as I'm sure you're aware. I saw this very interesting crochet project today, and thought of you:


Hugs, Kimmy


My aunty and uncle live up that hill, and my grandparents before them. It is the one place in the world that is "home" and it has the same pull for my children :-) Lovely photos.

Thank you for taking us along on your walk, I fell in love with Skipton in the short time we were there and it's a lovely treat to see it again through your photographs. Can't wait to visit again, maybe in the winter. X
