I have so much Jewellery for sale on Da Wanda at the moment i dont know where to begin when it comes to adding pictures.Da Wanda is a great site for sellers as it is free to list but it hasn`t quite taken off yet,there aren`t too many buyers around.It`s lovely to look at and somehow less irritating than Etsy.My shop;

Thomas Heatherwick

I like these kind of public works a lot, i wish this guy was more in the public eye i think his street art imparticular is more engaging than a hundred Damien Hirst spot paintings but he`s a designer really...

SCRAPBOOKING;Julian Opie`s swimmers ,Squid/Octopus?

I love what Julian Opie did on the side of that swimming pool.It`s interesting to ponder if other buildings had such literal depictions of what went on inside them on the outside...
Its so humorously serene i think it makes you laugh at all the things you`ve heard about "the deep" like the good disaster at sea tale, the proper gothic nightmare with storms,sharks,man-eating squid , Octopi,pirates,pirhanas,carnage.

Egyptian Goddess

Its really unusual to see a sculpture of a female that is huge, imposing, impressive and powerful.This one of an Egyptian Goddess is also a little bit spooky-bonus points!Its the Huge eyes and it was all red originally?Red is used under gold nowadays when gilding but maybe they didnt back then ,i dont know maybe it was gold.I swear it also looks a little mishcheivous.

Huge Giantess all red/gold/black?goddess,staring down at the population with her massively scary black mishcheivous eyes.I dont know if Archaeologists have a methodology for finding out who the cool people were in antiquity but i hope if they ever have that she is one of them.

Dan Aykroyd Express

I may be trying to do something more complicated than my brain can yet get comprehensive control over here.I wanted to 'embed'[hahaha] them but it didnt happen.These little vids of Dan Aykroyd are a really interesting if to prove nothing more than the obvious fact that as entertaining a guy as this could entertain you reading the phone book.Not sure whats more fascinating here the exotic train or Dan
The tour;

Ex sCRAPbook interior`s

The top picture has a Bruce Tippett scroll top picture.I held onto this because i think i like the interior view and not the scroll top pic,i cant imagine it working that well in may other places...
The funky coloured kitchen picture i found in amongst property listings.If only those makeover shows ever did anything half as imaginative as this...

2 random scrapbook images.Really couldn`t get all the creases out of that fabulous pink room [in america somewhere]so it is a bit blurry.One boney looking boney cat print i did from yrz ago and one adorable sleepy Moana who i woke up just to take this picture [-she was face down snoring into the blanket] when i had some film left a few years ago before digital became compulsory.

Buy art

Buy Art! [some art]not all of it is up there yet.ART!

My new profile on REDBUBBLE from which you can purchase my artworks in various forms cards,prints etc.Although the little red witches are not for sale yet for some reason,i hope to remedy this if technology and brain will just concede defeat and do as they are instructed.

May also shirk it off and flounce.Just that way i suppose.

Blog alive but unwell.

Blog is still alive but refusing both image and writing in same post so below is a picture of the necklace i currently have for sale up on ebay.User name Lyselicia.There is also a ridiculously well priced rather fetching rainbow bracelet made up of small 1cm polymer clay hearts,handmade.

I`ve been meaning to post someplace it might get noticed more something about FRONTLNE the spot on treatment for cats,but if i don`t do it here i will never get around to it.

The vet [or vets as it is a different one everytime we go] should have told us not to put the treatment on our sick cat as it says on the packet.Even when after having the treatment the cat became almost catatonically depressed the vet insisted in was unlikely to have been caused by the treatment.It was.Within two hours of having the treatment she was distressed and listless eventually just sinking into a deadeyed lifelessness for the approx three weeks it took to wear off.It does say on the Frontline packet 'May cause depression'.Our vet seemed to know nothing about it.
Really frustrated with the attitude-when she was so depressed it seemed like her time was up and she aught possibly to be put down the vet insisted all was well .Now she has multiple things wrong with her but is in a reasonably chipper mood the vet thinks her game is up!
This farce is no way to end 18 yrs of adorable furry loveliness.

Dear Dead Blog...

So i thought i had a blog.OK i had forgotten about it for some time but i found it again in my bookmarks and it was dead.Dear dead Blog...

I have some items up for sale on ebay;

under the name "lyselicia"

My previous blog had uploaded images of my handmade jewellery but since i am starting again just linking to the jewellery seems futile so the link includes the books and dvds i have put up.

So i am using baby oil as a thinning medium with oil paint.The smell is wonderful compared to turps, the price is good compared to liquin and it comes off your hands much easier.I cannot find any information anyplace about baby oils` suitability and have been warned the long term consequences for the paint will not be known till it is too late.Shit to that i say.There is only one way to find out and as long as it dries [which it does] before it all flakes off i can always vacuum it up.
