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

Oh Lucy, that turned out magical! It's beautiful on the mantel with your other Spring-y decorations. You did a super job of it. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)


Hi Lucy You must have been reading my mind. I brought in some twigs from some shrubs I had to trim. They have a dark maroon red bark and I have no idea what the shrub is. So there I have the twigs in the jar and they have been looking so pretty all by themselves, but then thot, mmmmm...they need some sprig blossoms. And here you provide! My husband kinda gave me the look when I brought the twigs in, but then he too is used to me bringing in my 'finds' from nature. Found a bunch of really beautiful mosses in the forest, so gathered up some and dried the moss in a low oven setting. The moss is not ready to be glued to a wreath of some sort. I love bringing nature indoors. Cheers, MO


I would think lots of people will be interested in your pattern as decorating twigs is a very popular idea. Sadly, where I live I can never seem to find any.

Perfectly wonderful.


I love this idea! So simple, yet so pretty! A real "cheer-me-up" project if ever there was one! Cool:)


So pretty - I love your ideas. Will definitely make some to put on twigs. Such a lovely happy idea that brightens up your day and makes you smile. Thank you Lucy x


Beautifully done, very delicate and pretty. I am indeed surprised that your family were surprised about the stick. I wasn't at all. I carried half a log home from the river once, it nearly killed me. People were surprised about that as well, but it made a lovely table in the garden. It's cracked now, so it's about time for a new one. CJ xx

They are brilliant Lucy. I can feel your happiness and excitement in making this decoration. You have such a lovely and happy vibe when you are creating things like this. Xx


Your twig and flowers look beautiful.

Kathryn Cairnie-Lyall

I bet if you put that twig in some water it would bud and perhaps even flower in a few weeks. Worth a try Lucy!


Lovely little flowers and like the twig idea


OK, now I have serious mantelpiece envy!! Dinner is delayed yet again... ;)) xx

I’m so thrilled that you’re buzzing with creativity again! It’s infectious!

Gillian Edwards

I am new to Attic 24 and love reading your blogs and seeing your photos. I live a bit further south on the Nottinghamshire Derbyshire border. Love the decorated twig. Must have a go x

Jan Macdonald

I’m always looking for decorations for twiddle muffs and these would be ideal. Thank you once again Lucy for sharing your ingenuity. Jan x


OH....I just love these little flowers! And I have the perfect colors left over from my last blanket. (I just knew those little scrappy balls of yarn would be good for something!) Thanks for sharing, Lucy!

Mary Kizilis

Your twiggy flowers are just perfect, and the button middles give them just the right lift. So lovely! (It is also lovely reading your daily posts, it’s good to know you are keeping on keeping on and finding joy in the small things and cups of coffee!)

Mary Marsh

Oh this is not crazy, it's lovely. I have an old earthenware urn that I put sticks and twigs in. Never thought to decorate them! Neat!
Always love your posts.

Love it! Now the twig looks really pretty! That organic cotton looks great to use and the colours are lovely!
