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

How lovely to go for evening walks. I love that too. The church bells were lovely to listen to. Your youngest, little B has a wonderful sense of colour and design for someone so small!Such neat colouring too.
I used to like perfumed candles a lot until I learnt, from several sources, that they were very unhealthy to breathe in because of the artificial perfumes and colours. These days, I just add a couple of drops of certified natural essential oils to my burning candles and I know it won't hurt my lungs.


Lucky you to live in such a beautiful place! Thank you for sharing it with us! A real visit there is on my bucket list for sure, but for now the links you provide take me on virtual visits regularly! Love that I can stroll the streets and almost have a look into the shop windows. And to hear the bells....what a treat!
Little B's pumpkin is beautiful. He should be proud. It will be a treasure to display every year during the fall, alongside all your adorable little pumpkins.

Another lovely post!

Could almost smell that beautiful cinnamon and orange candle.Loving your Autumnal photos and activities.


Best pumpkin ever!


Your half term closely mirrors ours! Candles, curry, slow cooker meals, walks, autumn leaves, hand-knitted socks, painting (a spooky churchyard picture here rather than coloured pumpkins) and lots of sofa time too....however I took maybe three photos in all - I'm so glad you took lots and shared them!! Hope you have a lovely quiet week with the Little People back at school :)

I can see that Little B has your eye for color! His palette is different, but your influence is there- we’ll done, Little B!

Loved the farm shop and a must visit again next year when over there. Photos would be lovely to remind me how nice it is. Loved the photos here, love Autumn over there. Not quite the same here, (Perth Western Australia). If I want to see the Autumn colours have to drive to certain places as the have the right trees. Somewhere I've heard is a Oak Tree, I love acorns. I must try to find this said tree. One day I will pluck up the coverage to knit some socks, these are lovely.


Love the photo of the church. I know that church very well but have usually gone home by the time it gets dark, so have no night-time photos of it. I grew up in Bradford, so the town was an easy bus ride away. I now live in Manchester so I still visit sometimes.


You're right about those pies Lucy. My hubby comes to Skipton on business about once a month and I always make sure he takes me with him so I can visit the fabulous farm shop and buy a couple of pies to take home...delicious!
I love Skipton and I've just taken up crochet so I really enjoy reading your blog. Keep up the good work:-)

I visited the Yorkshire area for a week in 2007 & loved it. We’re planning to visit again but in the meantime I can “virtually visit” every time I read one of your blogs. Thank you for always sharing such lovely images & musings. Pat from Charlotte, NC by way of New Jersey 🍄🍂🍁

Love Little B's pumpkin!!! Fabulous use of color. I look forward to seeing the dragon. I would be walking every day if I had somewhere to walk like you do. I loved walking in Germany when I lived there eons ago. I like walking here in the States too, but really miss the old villages and the history to look at. As always your blog brings a little smile. And you really do have a great eye for photos. Take very good care!!!

you always get such amazing photos
