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

for rebecca's house



Last summer while in Michigan with the Postmark girls, I made a necklace using this image of my mom (the same one up there in the banner). I wear it frequently because it's light and easy to wear, but also because people ask about the photo and I love to say it's my mom. Over the weekend I made another one. Her face in that flower makes me think of Spring, Beauty, Innocence .... Mischief.

In an effort to raise money for her ongoing housing project in Haiti, Rebecca just closed an auction on her blog. Jenny and Cynthia donated their beautiful handmade socks to the cause and many people offered donations directly to the fund.

Let's keep it going and help get that house built. She is so close to her goal, and a family in Haiti desperately needs that house!

Up for auction for Rebecca's house in Haiti is this necklace. I can adjust the finished length to any size or leave it around 18". To bid, please leave a comment on this post with an amount at least $1.00 higher than the last bid. The bidding will close on Friday and 100% of the funds will go directly to Haiti.

Thanks for any amount or contribution to pitch in. xoC
