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

in the pink


Finally, a break in the heatwave here! Yesterday I joined Maggie on her volunteer day at the CSA. Early in the morning, under a shady tree in Sleepy Hollow, we tended and refilled the bins of vegetables and fruit for the pick-up. Corn, baby eggplant, cucumbers, kirbys, carrots, yellow cherry tomatoes, tomatoes, kale, blueberries and apricots. So sorry I forgot to take my camera, but it was really fun being on that side of the produce table and helping everyone collect their shares. 

Inspired to start earlier in the day and get more done, I just cleaned up the studio some and uncovered a few half-made things that have lost their way in the mess. Like summer meals, the simplest projects are welcome these days. A basket with just a few elements and tools seems to have the most promise.

Matthew Mead was kind enough to ask me for a little project for his upcoming holiday magazine. I so enjoyed that collaboration and it has me excited to see what the magazine's going to look like. (You can pre-order a copy of the magazine here.) Won't be long now- suddenly October seems right around the corner.

Sorting my archives today. Apparently, I still love pink houses!
