Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


Jump Rings for Chain-Making

I found a nice source for jump rings: Spiderchain Jewelry. Some very helpful pages are the Favorite Weaves and Sample Pictures. The "shopping cart" is really a calculator that sends an email with an order number to you and to Spider. You then follow up separately with payment (PayPal accepted). You can include some comments about what you're trying to build (which I did) and Spider will sanity check your order (which he did) which is a nice touch.

My magpie eye got stuck on the niobium rings, which are especially pretty in mixed colors. I got these: air mix. Now I just hope they get here in time for the Bead Party this Saturday :-)
