Lucy, wish you with your lovely family the very best in 2016...healthy, wealthy, creative always! Thank you indeed for sharing your passion and talents with us. Many beautiful blessings!!!


Thank you for the message, Little Lady - what neat sandwriting you have! Thank you for your luminous blog, Lucy, and Happy New Year to you all.

Lovely pictures as usual Lucy! Such a lovely place you live in :) I didn't know about that money tree...it's amazing! And the words written on the sand are great too!
Have a safe and wonderful New Year!


What a lovely laid back post. I very much like Little Lady's Christmas choices. We have the Enchanted Forest colouring book too, love it, and my littlest boy got a wondering big tin of colouring pencils from Father Christmas. We like to sit side by side and colour together. Love the "Attic 24" written in the sand, so beautifully lettered. More than a little artistic talent there I think! It's been lovely to see the sun and blue sky hasn't it. Although I think it will be in short supply tomorrow. I hope the water levels near you don't rise any higher. Glad you're having a good Christmas. CJ xx


Wishing you and your family a safe, healthy and Happy New Year. Thank you for letting us into your life Lucy. 🎉 🍾 🎊 😃

Happy New Year to you and your family from a chilly Las Vegas Nevada USA. We are a bit cooler then normal but its wonderful. Also getting much needed rain and snow in the mountains to the north and west. So thankful for the water this will fill our reservoirs and should help are drought situation in the western half of the United States. Your blogs are a joy to read. Having been born in the Netherlands and raised in various parts of the world I thoroughly enjoyed reading about your family's adventures and seeing your lovely pictures.

Just to let you know I love addict 24, I am currently making three of your Afghans. I order the supplies and packages and they came in your yarns or rules as you call them are absolutely beautiful.

Best wishes, much love, Ilona


The water does look so high up your way and another storm is approaching.I do feel for all those who have been affected. West Bay has been on flood alerts most of this week. Your daughter has inherited your talent and interests. That was so thoughtful to write those words. Sarah x

Lovely Lucy. The beck certainly looks scary that full, but glad you are OK. Making me very teary again with those pics of Bolton Abbey. The river certainly looks different to when we were there last year and were the stepping stones covered? At least there was a wee bit of beach with a lovely sign(giggle). Enjoy the home time with the little ones and take care.

Hi I'm new to Attic24, I've just read your blog with regards to the weather. I live not far from Haworth which took a battering from the rain so much so one of our local pubs may have to be demolished after it took the wall out on one side. Bad weather is forecast again tomorrow, let's hope it's not as bad, bye to all and thank you for letting me join Attic24

Lynn Butler

I love and am so impressed with LL's artwork in the sand. Very precise letters. How thoughtful of her to think of all of us in blog land. Please tell her Thank You! You had a wonderful Christmas and I'm glad you stayed safe and dry with all the wet weather. Here's to a very Happy New Year!

Joyce Stewart

Wonderful that you got to get a walk at all with all the rain....sadly there is more on the way via Northern Ireland where our wind got up about 2 p.m and we've had a few showers....we are fortunate we are not on the coast where it is much worse. Trust you will not be affected by tonight's rain but hope and pray the damage is kept to an absolute minimum.
Can I also say that your daughter shows great promise in the art department...my goodness I think what she drew is magnificent....I would love to see her become a calligrapher in her later years, she certainly has the talent if she can come up freehand with that lettering. Well done Little Woman..
Take care.

Lovely blog post as usual Lucy. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely walk with us. Tell little lady her Attic24 in the sand was just perfect!!!!
Merry Christmas 🎄 and happy new year 😊 to you and yours!


Wishing you a very happy and healthy new year :) oh and lots of creativity and craft too xxxx


Another wonderful post Lucy, thank you. I love to see your photos of Bolton Abbey as it was a favourite place for our family when I was growing up. It's like a visual trip down memory lane. Glad you are safe from the flooding and hope the beck continues to be contained. My heart goes out to all those affected and hope there will be more dry, blue sky days to come.

It sounds like you've had a wonderful Christmas and post-xmas. I loved that you found 3 new pieces of river glass! I'm glad the kids all got fun things for their gifts.. it's so neat when you hit the spot on that.

((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Happy Christmas Lucy. I'm happy to hear your family have enjoyed it despite the bleurgh weather ^_^


Your family always sounds so happy. I love the simple things you do together.
Thank you ,Little Lady, for writing in the sand for us!


What a lovely message from Little Miss, think it would make a great header! A designer in the making methinks.


I hear you are to get a bad storm today, stay safe and dry, love the Attc24 in the sand!


Very thoughtful of Little Lady to write a message for us! Thank you!
I love this bit of Christmas, lots of food still in the house, presents to enjoy, and knowing others are enjoying theirs, knowing that it's over for another year and we have had a happy peaceful time, and feeling so grateful for everything we have, and that our family is safe.
Thoughts and prayers for people affected by the floods x


Thank you for your wonderful post, your pictures and your words, all the colours. Thank you for sharing all these things. It makes me feel good and happy. You are a wonderful woman,Lucy. Have a good time and a Happy New Year!

A lovely post Christmas! Pretty much the same here, except (insert older interest for the kids). I always take a deep breath after it's over no matter the joy and fun had leading up to and on that special day. Feels so good, doesn't it?! Love the money tree and L.L.'s sand art. The weather seems to be the same here as well, except warmer temps to go with it. Here's to more sunny days and excuses to play hooky. ; )

catherine maudsley

Wow I didn't realise Skipton had been affected. loved the colouring book - I have the Secret Garden version and am having a go at it in the morning with my new blendable pencils. will have to investigate the fine liners though. Lets hope storm Frank doesn't do too much damage it must be awful waiting for it to come.
