Etsy Shop is Open!...and new Flickr pics are in

So Alex and I finally opened up the Lydia, Oh, Lydia! Art Etsy shop. Just click here to see more.

Royal Hoot Necklace now in the shop repurposed by Alex. The flower is vintage.
Vintage terrier box now in the shop. This is a vintage piece, as stated, but I decided to add more depth of interest by painting around the terrier decal w/a nice apple green paint, then age and distress it .
Vintage alligator belt. This came from my home. We used to wear it when younger. A very unique piece. Pardon the hair in the photo.
Cool blue stone like glass pendant on long vintage chain by Alex, now in the shop.
OK- This is simply stunning. It is from my Mom's house. It is a mother-of-pearl squiggly, moving fish, with some scallop trim, and another vintage bauble piece on a long vintage chain. They don't come any nicer than this. In the shop now.Hallie Charm Bracelet now in the shop. It is vintage and new repurposed by Alex. The aqua blue flower is from a vintage earring set.

Vintage altered measuring tape with vintage pictures on one side, and matching verse on the other. The pictures are from old postcards. They are now in the shop. These are definitely very cool, and so very useful! One-of-a-kind of course.
Gentleman Kitty on Block now in the shop.Inspiration Heart Pinkeep now in the shop.

So what do you do when you get 24-30 inches of snow? Shovel? haha...of course, at least 4-5x a day, and it snowed for almost 2 whole new days. Well, finally get off the bottom side to very 'patiently' upload photos of items for sale in Etsy.

I haven't made the new banner that I have in my head for months now. And if it weren't for Alex,. this might not have gotten done today. Since Larissa modeled the jewelry, we decided that today was as good a day as any to get things moving on the shop. Because of the weather, the internet wanted to be , should I say STUPID??? Ok, so we listed 5 of my items, and 5 of Alex's.

We are slowly learning things. Have to contact PayPal with some questions, but they are closed.

We want to join One World One Heart, and hope that we can make it in time for the 8 Feb. deadline-that, along with a gazillion other things,...

... and our 24 hr. care of hubby/their dad by all of us. How nice is it to have your entire family at your beck and call? He is tired, and catching up on needed sleep. Of course , we are stuffing him with all his favorite goodies, as much as possible. And he loves his Lingonberry juice from Ikea!
