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

Hi Lucy - I just love reading your posts and seeing your beautiful photos! I don´t know which I love more, your writing or your pictures :)
Once before I have asked your advice on travelling in England. That was about London and you gave me a lot of good tips which I used :)
Now I want to go to England a rent a cottage or a caravan and stay for 7-10 days somewhere. I would prefer it to be in the Yorkshire area. Do you know of any places like that, that have a mini-market on site (since I plan not to have a car). I would want to be able to take a train from London and then a taxi to the destination. I does not have to be secluded, I love being around people and children playing. I am interesting in walking around villages or small towns. Not looking for a night life, just an ordinary nice holiday :)
I have googled and googled but I wanted to try to ask you and get your opinion before making any reservations.
And one final questing - when are school holidays in the UK in the summer?
Many, many thanks in advance if you have any info at all for me :)


Catching up on reading your latest post - uplifting as usual and so descriptive of your gorgeous town. I wish I was there!!!


Lovely! I enjoyed reading your story

Such a beautiful post, I've been feeling very low energy the last couple of days...I've had a week off work just for some 'me' time and it's now coming to an end. Reading your post has lifted my spirits and I am now craving some fresh air (and egg on toast!). Thank you for your lovely writing, it always makes me happy :) xxx

Amanda Bloom

Luce you’ve lifted my heart! Thank you darling xxxx

Susan Smith

Well that all brought a lump to my throat & made me just want to come home & soak it all up. Maybe next year when things have calmed down in my corner of the world & we have time. Thanks a million for sharing. Take care.


Absolutely LOVED this Lucy! You have such a wonderful way with words and of course, your terrific photos bring it all to life...
You really are so blessed to have all this beauty around you..

Best wishes and thanks for sharing..

You are not alone, I too am a leaf-whisperer! I also like to tell sheep up on the fells how beautiful they are and thank them for the wool...there is no hope.


Did you hear the bees in the trees? One big buzz. Love it. First sign of the warm days to come.

What a lovely post, and the best bit is that I know exactly where you are walking and the places of interest that you talk about! I’m hoping you manage to catch the wild garlic in full bloom in the woods. I went there again today and although they are opening they are not displaying their full glory yet! 😊 I’m sure it won’t be long.
Lots of inspiration for future projects Lucy.......The beautiful bright, gaudy colours of the canal barges with their painted wares......The wonderful green of the hedge.....and the beautiful blossoms on the trees. I’m sure you are feeling very inspired in between all the other projects you have on the go. Xxxx

Lovely photos and I especially love the blues in the banner :) Have a lovely time with your Dad and enjoy the boats & sun!! Crochet and canal boats - my two favourite things. Thanks for your posts xx


Oh what glorious photos! I feel I was right there with you. We are having equally gorgeous weather and natural beauty here in the SF Bay Area. Like you, it's my favorite time of year, but we both seem to find the special joy in every season. May is when my roses have their major show of the year, so I'm really enjoying that right now. Thanks for sharing with us!


Wonderful post Lucy, it's lovely to hear about your weekend. The weather was certainly fantastic and the colours of the leaves and flowers really pop against the blue sky. We were in Dorset and the lilacs were amazing. Simple pleasures are the best!


Fab post Lucy, I love your exuberance and sheer joy in the simple things in life. Fresh produce simply cooked and eaten with those you love the most, what could be nicer?


Wow, an ice cream tug! Never heard of such a thing, but really fantastic. In America, an ice cream truck driving through neighborhoods is common. Beautiful canal scenery.


Happy Spring! I found your blog a few months ago and have been delighted to have a window into your colorful cheery life. Your writing and beautiful photos have provided lots of material for my British obsession!

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing, I too adore spring! I remember those days well, when everything you do can embarrass the teens. lol Have a fab day! xxxxxxxxxxxx

Rachael Ayres

So could there be a spring pink and white blanket coming?! It could have bluebell and sky blue and spring green and daffodils too!


Hi Lucy, I live in Monza, Italy... but I would like to live near you... what a beautiful place...
How is your father? Is he able to look after the house all alone?


Lovely post Lucy, really enjoying these peeks into your everyday life


What a fabulous post Lucy, gorgeousness from start to finish. My eldest told me off for talking to a flapjack the other day. The waterways festival looks amazing, and what glorious weather for it all. And I love the ice-cream tug boat, brilliant. Great that they sell local farm ice-cream as well, I wish they did here, but it's all Mr Whippy rubbish. Glad you had such a good weekend. CJ xx


Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend with family. I definitely liked the sound of the festival. What a lovely place you live Lucy. Always look forward to exploring when we come to Yarndale but still not managed to make it to the castle yet. Maybe this year:-)



We really did have a fabulous bank holiday weekend in Yorkshire didn't we.

Teresa Kasner

You really know how to enjoy Spring! I so would love to see your canal boats and to see a lot of them all lit up and decorated would be the best thing ever. I'm excited to see your banner all done, too. Will you hang it in your studio for the rest of the year? Enjoy your Dad and his lady friend during their visit! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Oh a lovely post Lucy and I still remember how much I loved your area when I visited from Australia 2 years ago ☺ and met you to at Yarndale. It sure looks gorgeous at the start of Spring....Autumn here so a bit different lol
