Well it wasn't to be...called AAA, the tow-truck dude was rude and mean to me! Hmmpff...why?? he jumped my car, it started and he said "does your car always die when you let off the gas"...Umm, NO!!! Him: "well you might as well drive it home." I told him I don't think so, take it to the dealer. His response, "not without an address." Yikes, dude can't I just give you directions??? him: "I have GPS, need an address"....umm, ok $#&*(%!!! I quickly learned how to use VZ navigator, provided the address and he was off.
My dear friend took me to get a rental car, and as luck would have it...."NO" rental cars available. By this time I'm ready to cry--so not like me, but I was tired and stressed. So my friend says to the Enterprise dude (ED) "what about that truck that lady just droppped off?" Enterprise dude "oh sure, I can give her that" Friend: "And you'll give it to her for the price of car, since you don't have one?" ED: "sure..$50.99/ day" Me: eyes popping out of my head, I've never driven a pick-up truck. ED dude says I'll be fine handling it since I drive a Grand Cherokee.....yeah o.k. buddy! So out we go to the truck, in the mean-time tow truck man, turns the corner with my car..."umm why are you turning here?" Oh I see why, you are towing another car behind you...my friend says "do you think your car will make it to the dealer or will it be sold for parts?"....LOL, I don't even care at this point, crankiness is deep within me!
So I get in the truck...now let me tell you this is a BIG A$$ TRUCK....Chevy Silverado, double cab 4 door, 4 x 4....he he!! and I can't get the thing to move. So I saunter back into the rental joint, and meekly ask "can you back this truck out for me, please....I can't seem to get the emergency brake off" <--pathetic female. Well the Enterprise dude, has trouble too...I no longer feel like an ass. Finally I get this big a$$ truck moving...and I finally have realized why men like to drive pick-up trucks...people get out of your way and you get what is know as "truck balls"...he he! I couldn't stop laughing at the thought of me driving this pick-up truck all nite and it continued into the next day...I'm posting a pic here for all of you to enjoy!
Thankfully I only drove 40 miles in that truck, for a tune of $83 dollars, yee gads!! expensive rental!!...and am happily driving my own Grand Cherokee once again that cost very little to repair in comparison. Somebody is definitely on my side...but I'm still chuckling over the pick-up truck...he he!

I'm so happy to feature these fans and believe it's got multiple benefits:
1. Supporting and promoting other artisan shops...as I truly want us all to succeed....AND I really love checking out other's creative styles and abilities. There are so many amazing artisans that at times it's overwhelming.
2. I'm connecting with some really neat people and I love getting to know new people!
3. Hey...I'll admit it, I want more facebook fans!...can't blame me, huh?
Well now on to the good stuff. My first featured artist is Tiny Treasures, she has been part of the Etsy world since December 2008. She takes vintage jewelry and upcycles it, making new and unique jewelry, creating new memories...that simply put are like Tiny Treasures.
If you are new to the world of being "green" and aren't aware of what upcycling is, I've provided a link to wikipedia for a more in depth explanation. But basically it's taking the old and making something new-- how's that for an elementary explanation?? he he... I personally think the idea of upcycling is great, and probably should look into my own jewelry box and see what Tiny Treasures I could put to good use or pass on...
I've picked out three tiny treasures that I really like...all are available in her shop and very reasonably priced! Please visit her shop and show your support: Tiny Treasures on Etsy!
GOLD NEST: The picture says it all, no explanation needed. I love gold and silver combined together has a very classy look!
BLACK FLOWER & PEARLS: nothing says classy and elegant more so than black paired with pearls!! Every girls needs a set of pearls....
WISH: adorable and cute, perfect for everyday or as a gift for that crazy teenager in your life! The best part, she can make this necklace in other words: dream, love, live, faith, hope, angel, and luck...something for everyone!
Well that's all for this featured FB Fan and fellow Etsian...I do wish her the best and may her shop be prosperous and make others happy!
