Welcome to the creative home of artist and maker Charlotte Lyons.

auction for the nielsons


Patience, Dora and Daisy.

Three sweet sister mice in a vintage hand-painted teacup. Made from recycled wools and other vintage bits, they sit in their cozy teacup together or stand alone. Each is signed and dated. The teacup was a gift to me from Maggie with the hope that I would make a tea mouse for it. How perfect that it holds 3 sisters, the Nie Mice. I so enjoyed making them last night, sewing and being creative with the thought of helping this darling family in a small way.

The collection is for auction right here on my blog to benefit the Nielsons Recovery Fund. (Updates and donation links are on Stephanie Nielson's sister's blog here.)


To bid, please leave a comment here on this post only with your bid of at least $1 more than the last comment-bid. Starting bid is $30.

On Monday, September 15 at 7 pm ET, the auction will close and I will contact the winner who pays the winning bid amount to the paypal fund set up for the Nielsons. After sending me the paypal receipt for the winning bid/donated amount, I'll ship the teacup and mice to the winner. (International bidders welcome- shipping is free.)


Please keep checking back to see how the auction is going- and tell your friends too.  xoC

happy to you
