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 always enjoy your pics of what you see on your walks. Our weather in Northern Indiana USA is just beginning to turn to winter...about a month past when we usually have our first snowfall. I seriously would be happy if we never had another flake. But then wouldn't THAT we scary!!
xx, Carol


What a lovely, lovely blog! I am enjoying it so much!

Winwick Mum

One of the best things about this weather is how much you appreciate being back in the warm, especially with a scone and a brew! xx


Since we moved house to the edge of our town, we have the most incredible views over fields and woodland - and I've become obsessed with the light too! It's so beautiful to see the sunlight streaming through the trees and gently kissing the fields - the girls love going for a 10 minute walk after school too - and looking at the setting sun. So beautiful.


I'm always obsessed by the winter sunlight, everyone round here is used to me waxing lyrical about it all the livelong day. I really wished I took my camera on the school run this morning, as you say, the most ordinary things were utterly transformed. I haven't had a mince pie yet, but seeing yours I've suddenly realised the time is right. I shall hunt one down immediately. Look after yourself Lucy, and enjoy the rest of the week. CJ xx


So many blankets, but when I look round at home, I realise I have many of them as well!! Love your outdoor photos as I recognise some of the views since coming to Yarndale this year. Happy memories.


I can remember doing the school run a few years ago now in the snow, I was so busy watching the ducks and geese siding on the ice that I fell over myself ! Oh we did laugh, luckily I was unhurt

Dear Lucy,
I'm writing you from Greece. I always enjoy reading your posts and share your appreciation for little things. Your blog is an inspiration for me. Although I'm a starter in crochet,I have done three blankets,thanks to your very enlighting tutorials. Your photos make me to wand visit this beautiful little town.
Have a nice day

I love hearing about your walks and going wherever
your feet take you and as always your photos are beautiful! The smell of smoke at this time of year always reminds me of visits to a pioneer village we have here in Indiana. It does make for a cozy feeling! Get all the rest you need. Your bed looks like the perfect way to end the day, so snuggly looking. Thanks for sharing your day.

Teresa Kasner

It looks like you're thoroughly enjoying life doing even the mundane in the most appreciative way. I admire that in you! Thank you for sharing the canal boat with smoke weaving it's way into the sky.. you're so lucky to get to spend time walking by them.

So love your town tour of your lovely English village, winter sure is about to set in. Will it be a white Christmas for you ? Here in Australia its rapidly warming up again fast some areas have already hit 40C. Our Christmas will not doubt be a scorcher!
You made me chuckle Lucy with your cappucino fluff, I shake the long life milk container and make my friends the best cappuccinos,they love it! Who needs a fandangled machine. Really enjoyed your blog today.

I miss the fort/nest building my girls did when younger. Lovely seeing the frosty leaves and such. Have a good rest.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Lucy, I myself snorted out loud at this post multiple times. So funny today! I do love your ramblings so, all the way across the pond over here in Michigan. :-)

Jean Stein

Thank you so so much for sharing your sunshine, as we've had clouds and rain for the last many days. I'm starting to think that sunny and cold is better than damp and cold-ish! November has disappeared for my family, even with the Thanksgiving long weekend, and Christmas is roaring closer and closer. Please take cozy care of yourself and your little ones, and thanks again!


Lovely pics, I do love a frosty morning, I too was out taking pics of the berries in the garden today, before the blackbird eat them all

Loving the frosty pictures and the beautiful light. I'm just down the road in Bradford and I took my nursery class outside this morning to explore our frosty playground. There was much oooing and ahhhhing as we discovered frozen puddles,icy condensation on the mirrors and sparkly frosty leaves!

Fabulous post, what a lovey day you have had in beautiful surroundings... ☺ ❤💕


Always wonderful to read your blog. You transform me to your world which is always the opposite weather wise to where I live. Love it 😍 I love to see your walks in the woods with the frosted leaves and misty atmosphere. Sounds like your Little B loves a snuggle in colour and softness. ❤️


Your posts are always good for the soul. Such a beautiful reminder of color, simple pleasures, and familial warmth. Greetings stateside from Indiana. ❤️❤️


It's good to take care of yourself.
Happy you are when you can enjoy light , coffee , colours and small things , it gives a peaceful feeling.

Nice to read about it.


I never tire of reading about your walks and looking at your glorious photos. Wish I could take those walks with you as where I walk isn't nearly as pretty. I want to thank you so much for hooking me onto stocking knitting last January. I have learned to knit socks and have knitted about twenty pair since then and family and friends will be getting some for Christmas. Thank you. Thank you. Merry Christmas to you and your sweet family.


Luckily I hadn't taken a sip of my hot cup of tea when I read the "lovelydeadcrap " otherwise it would have been all over my nice warm duvet cos it really tickled my fancy to , I was giggling away to my self it makes my chuckle think about it now. I wish all winter could be bright cold and stunning like the last couple of days.


I love hearing about your weather, the light and the scenery. We had snow October 1st, which was deperessingly early, in northern Alberta Canada. It always snows in October but that was a bit much. Now we've had days and days of thick gorgeous hoarfrost, my favourite part of winter.
