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.

Hi Lucy what a lovely meander in a fabulous spot we were here in 215 feels so long ago now and so far away from home. Saltburn is a brilliant place and I always thought a little quirky craft cafe would thrive here. It is calling is back from Perth Wa. Happy anniversary and birthday thanks for sharing


Hello Lucy - your post has moved me to comment as your visit was to the area I come from and as I have lived outside the UK for 10 years I soak up any little bits of home whenever and wherever I can. Lovely to see your photos and read your comments. Delighted that you love this gorgeous nook of the UK. You mentioned the Cleveland Way- hubby and I did this a few years ago during one of the rare hot Summers (or at least 10 days) the North had. After the walk we both said, handsdown, it was the best holiday we ever did. Friends and family joined us at different places along the way - our 8 years old son too - put that with the stunning scenery, fabulous hospitality at each place we stayed and super people we met on the route - it really was a little piece of heaven on Earth. Highly recommend it! Thanks for your super posts and crochet inspirations. Best wishes

Je te souhaite un très bel anniversaire, bises.

I always love the artistry of your photos and the way they become inspiration for the colours in your crafts.


Belated Happy Anniversary Lucy & J - also belated Happy Birthday Lucy. I have loved reading about your weekend away, I felt that I also had been, your writing is so descriptive. There must be other ways of saying how amazing you are with words and I would support every one of them. Yarndale tales, excellent, in particular for those of us who are unable to make it to Skipton for the event - I live in hope!!! I have noticed that a few of your fans have asked if it would be possible to have the pattern for your lovely heart key rings. I would like to add my name to a no doubt growing list of people who would like this pattern - any possibility of sharing it anytime soon? Keep up the good work Lucy, your blog as well as your wonderful inspiration is truly an inspiration. Take care. Annette

The pictures of the smooth rocks by the sea give me a Feeling of how ancient your country is. How many ages went into making those rocks so smooth and so beautiful. Happy birthday happy anniversary! Wishing you many many more filled with happiness.


Wow Lucy, have to admit these photos are uniquely beautiful! The "charm bracelet" has a stunning climate on it...really appreciate your effort for shooting this great-looking images.

Happy Anniversary and Birthday Lucy. All your posts are wonderful but I LOVED this one. It is my old home turf (I lived about three miles from Saltburn in New Marske) so it was lovely to see it again from Ontario, Canada. :) Thank you for sharing.


A wonderful way to celebrate so many events. I know the coastal scenes would have helped you to unwind. Lovely pictures, I love the charm sculpture not so sure about all that steep stepped pavement! Sarah x

Happy birthday. What a fantastic venue to celebrate a birthday and wedding anniversary. Enjoy. X

I had a 29 yr old son by the time I hit 49. My children had their children in their 30’s and I think both time frames have their distinct blessings. Happy anniversary and birthday 💞💞💞💞 I still love your blog and your beautiful pics. Yours was my first blog I followed.


Lucy, so many Happy, Happy Happy times are wished for you. Your account of resting, celebrating, walking brought back some special times for me. I discovered the glorious little town of Saltburn at the beginning of the summer and had a very special week there. It felt good for the soul. Like brendaintheboro I hope you found time to visit Ripping Yarns - so many nice yarns to squidge. On top of all that, I've enjoyed "revisiting" the area through your words and photos. Thank you.


Happy Birthday and Anniversary to you darling. Sounds like you needed the recharge after the whirlwind that is Yarndale. Well deserved! Best xx.

What a lovely break for you after all the hard work of Yarndale. Your photos say it all.


What a wonderful respite and celebration of your marriage and birth day. A memory to hold in your heart during the busiest of times. Thank you for letting us in to see the beautiful countryside and the delightful charm bracelet.


Oh! Party! Congratz for both and you. I still think it's the best thing to do to keep things going well, on the road with the two of you. Lovely to read all the blissful things you've done.Hugs x
