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

Thanks for my virtual mini break! Will be thinking about this all day :)

What a beautiful little town. Sounds like a lovely morning.


Lucy, It does all look so beautiful! Yes it does look like a magic kingdom indeed! Even if I did visit I don't think I would have time to see what you see. Thank you so very much for this wonderful 'magic tour'. Lets do it again soon. xx


They are just stunning houses. What I would give to live there! x


Thank you for inspiring me to go for a walk this morning and collect some mindful moments myself. Your blog and your colorful crochet patterns are such a gift to your readers. You have helped me fill my home with color.... And definitely gonna try those bean burgers this evening. THANK YOU.

I've read about Saltaire but never seen any photographs - what a delightful place! And of course built by one of the old benevolent factory owners - you'd never catch any of them doing it these days would you! Lovely solid looking houses; and yes, my tiny front 'garden' could do with a bit of a tidy and 'kerb appeal'!


Such lovely photos!!! I especially like the one with the cat on the steps. Thanks so much for the "stroll" through what looks to be a perfect place. So glad you were able to get away and enjoy it.

concurs with this comment Sandy!


Lucy, reading your blog is like reading a fairy tale. You are so blessed to live in that magic land. It is my dream to visit one day.

hi friend


My son lives in Leeds, Lucy, definitely think I will stop off at Saltaire first, next time I visit! xxx


And thank you, Lucy, for evoking memories as those terraced houses are where my maternal grandparents lived. So naturally, Saltaire is a special place for me too.


Looks and sounds like a lovely morning! And if you had Gillian for company - all the better! :)


Thank you so much for sharing this - it made my day!


What a delightful place. I love those old terraced houses too.


Love that bright, cheery door! I would love it if I were able to take a 20 minute train ride to somewhere so serene...


We enjoyed a glorious day at Salt's Mill and Saltire after Yarndale last year. Not wanting to wish the year away but come September this year I hope that we will be enjoying all of these places again. Can't wait :) x


Saltaire is definitely one of my most favourite places too, I lived in Bradford for 7 years and often took myself on trips out to Saltaire, it's a gorgeous place to have a walk and a potter around the shops and then eat delicious food


Lovely thinking I may visit when in your neck of the woods xx lots of love Joy Xx


Ah, my friend and I stopped at Salts Mill on our way up to Yarndale last year, and in fact, our hotel was only about a mile away from it. Lovely memories! x

Let's all go to Saltaire.

wouldn't know how to get there. Where is it exactely? (I am Belgian, you know)
Looks quite expensive to me. (All the Streets with houses with coloured doors Always are in posh neigbourhoods)


I love Saltaire too, such a charming place. I love to walk along the canal path up to the mill. Karen x

I love how the British have to have their gardens even if it's just a small patch in the front!


Lucy, it was an absolute pleasure, a truly lovely morning. After a crazy few days it was so nice to sit and chat and just be. Good company, good coffee, just all round fabulous. We must do it again soon - before Yarndale, ideally! x
