“My Brokedown Car”

Description from Leigh D: Went out to run errands yesterday and the car would not start - had to take it in to the shop. I am hoping and praying that fixing it will not cost an arm and leg - this will seriously cut into my bead buying budget :-(

    Here in about an hour I am going to go pick it up and see what the damage is. Never thought I would use my car as an inspiration – but it is a deep metallic blue with black and soft grey interior!

    I think your car is a great inspiration!! :-)

    Very nice pick, and I hope your car is better soon, (and cheap). Much more fun to get beads than to pay repair bills. ;)

    Leigh, so sorry your four wheeled baby is sick – Hope she’s all fixed up today good as new! And that the damage to your wallet is minimal – Love your pick, though!
    Cool colors – Lapis is gorgeous, isn’t it?!!

    Sad story with a beautiful pick to come out of it, Leigh! Hope the repairs don’t take too big of a bite out of your bead budget! :-(

    Got the car back and the damage to my wallet was not as bad as it could have been – I was afraid I was going to need a new alternator. So all in all I got out fairly unscathed – whew :-)

    Pretty sure we want both arms (and hands) to bead.
