Random Ramblings

  • Had one of my guests for our monthly potluck come over with the flu.  Why in the world would you go to a house for dinner if you are sick?  I ended up coming down with it on Tuesday.  Thank goodness it only stuck around for 24 hours.

  • I am taking part in a design challenge sponsored by Blu Mudd.  I recieved my kit today.  As you can see, the colors are amber and orange.  It's beautiful but now I need to figure what to add to the mix along with whether I am going to make a bracelet or necklace.

  • I have had some fun with patina.  This started out as a washer.  I have learned not to pick up the steel washer as they are so hard, I wasn't able to to add any impressions first no matter how hard I hammered.  I do like the color though.  It is going to be part of a focal for a blog hop I am participating in.  

  • On Wednesday, I was having fun in the studio despite my back being fussy for some reason.  I had just had a massage earlier in the day too.  Sometimes I swear my back has a mind of its own same as the beads.  I had put this focal away for a Samhain blog hop but it was demanding that I use wooden blue beads and yellow sea glass.  Not very spooky.  Aw well.
  • Why is it that Washington drivers always manage to forget how to drive in the rain?  I mean seriously, we get more rainy days here then we get sunshine. 
  • I have been listening to Outlander again in audio.  I love the longer books and this one was over thirty hours.  And I am really looking forward to Outlander the series on Starz but I am curious why Jaimie has brown hair in the trailers.  Jaimie was a red head.  In fact, he was the first sexy redheaded male out there.  So why didn't the actor dye his hair?


  1. Outlander is one of my very favourite series, and I am just rereading the first book as a refresher (while I wait for the newest book to come out in small format paperback). Apparently Jamie's hair is that dark red in colour in Diana Galbaldon's mind, not the bright red one might expect. According to her, he has the correct hair colour, anyway. Sadly I don't get payTV and will have to wait for the DVD release for the series, unless my husband can work out where to download it. Cute necklace!!

    1. My only issue with that dark red is how often she raves about the gold in his hair. That's why I have always pictured more like a strawberry.
