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



Summer has something to say this year, doesn't it? Okay already, got the message. 

We took our walk last night around 9 pm and it was still so hot. Lots of people there at the park on the Hudson- playing softball, basketball, jogging with babies in strollers, sitting on park benches visiting like it was 3 in the afternoon. It was actually pretty exciting to see that because during the day, the town is completely shut up indoors. Did you know that before air conditioning, people used to sleep in Central Park on nights like these? 


Staying in front of the studio fan here, cutting out little birds, getting kits ready to go out and eating lots of peaches, cucumbers and cherry tomatoes. The farmer's market is tonight in town. Hoping the summer storms hold off and we all get a chance to stock up for another week of no-cook meals.


For those of you battling the daily heat- especially with children, go visit Maya and Annekata's summer circus. Love all their home-made ideas for cooling off. Such clever girls, such sweet ideas!
