Revisit Those Pink Garden Tools...
Welcome Fall Back

It seems like just yesterday I was writing about spring and here it is fall already...

This is my favorite season of the year. The high heat of the summer is over and it's exhilarating to work out in the yard again. Gloves actually feel comfortable and with a bit of crispness in the air, preparing for the winter makes me feel as if I'm ahead of the game.

OK, that's enough with the philosophical stuff. What I'm writing about today is the idea of re-visiting the condition of your yard and garden tools as well as thinking about adding a tool or two to help with the fall yard work and build your tool inventory (at the same time).

After a long summer season, many of the tools you've been using might be in a bit of disrepair. Hopefully when you purchased those tools, you got yourself a good quality piece. However, maybe you didn't and now have to look at replacing it. Or maybe you did buy a good tool but it wore out do to misuse, an accident, or just lots and lots of heavy use. I encourage you to think about how you used your tools and if you need to replace any, get a tool that matches your needs.

Having the experience of using a specific tool, you might realize that your initial reasoning was incorrect and that hand tool was not the right one for the job. That's ok, it's happened to me many times. You've gained valuable experience and now know what tool you need for the work you want to perform. Get the correct tool and set the old one aside for some other use. Education is a great thing!!

As for adding to your tool box, reach back into your past experiences and think about what tools you wished you had to make the work easier, or that tool you saw a friend use that made yard chores seem effortless. You may have even borrowed a tool and now it's time to get one for yourself.

Winter will be here before we know it so take a few minutes to reflect and plan ahead.

Until next time, we (Shelly and myself) wish you a great autumn.

Pink Gardening Tools - Smart Garden Tool Choices

Spring is just around the corner and the gardening bug is in the air. In fact, many locations in the south and west are already starting to plant gardens and flower beds.

Most gals I know are very much into gardening. Some use gardening as a hobby or a recreational activity. And then there are a few like my daughter Shelly that use gardening as therapy. A great past time to reduce the stress of the day and to nurture that motherly instinct. Shelly prefers it over motherhood cause she says the plants don't talk back.

To help choosing good garden tools, I've added (with Shelly's help) another page to this site to showcase some of the great tools now available for women interested in gardening and other forms of yard work. The Pink Garden Tool page is a bit different from the other two pages here in that each image holds a selection of tools. Click on the image and you'll find a number of products that belong to that category or grouping.

I truly hope you find something you like and even more importantly - I hope you find a tool or two you'll love using to make your gardening project Blossom.

Womens Tool Kits - The Rescue from: Slight Assembly Required

The holiday season is gonna be here sooner than we think and with it comes a herd of gifts with that include those infamous 3 words on the package that no one wants to see: "Some Assembly Required".

And if you think those three words are becoming more and more prevalent, you're right. As overseas manufacturers try to squeeze every penny they can from their costs, they've taken (in a big way) to packaging their products in a knocked down configuration. This saves them the labor to assemble the product, and reduces their packaging and shipping costs as well.

You reap the savings but suffer the price of having to do the work assembling whatever it is you just saved $1.29 on.

Sure some of them guys include a few of the tools you'll need to assemble their product but the quality of those so-called tools leaves a lot to be desired. Remember, they are trying to
cut costs so they're not going to spend those labor and shipping savings on assembly tools for you. Those skimpy tools are meant to be thrown away when you're done with them and their shoddy quality reflects that ideology.

The other day I bought some furniture from Ikea. They included a stamped open end wrench and a soft metal allen wrench. I split the open end wrench in two when I tried to tighten a nut, and stripped the allen wrench on a screw. Those tools were junk, so I called upon my trusty set of hand tools to finish the job.

Every household deserves a decent set of tools. They don't have to be fancy but they do need to be durable and function properly. Here's one I think you're going to like...

The following set is a great general purpose Home Tool Set. It includes all the basic hand tools like a Hammer, a couple of Screwdrivers, Pliers, Open End Wrenches, an Adjustable Wrench, a Socket Set, and even includes a set of Allen Wrenches. All in a deluxe carrying case.

This set will come to your rescue and give you the tools you need to slay that "Some Assembly Required" demon. BTW, both Shelly and I want to wish you a great Holiday!

Mini Pro 10 Tool Kit-10% Donated to Breast Cancer Research!

Pink Tool Sets to Fight Breast Cancer

When a company comes along and does something wonderful, it's hard for me to hold back from singing their praises...

Such is the case with Little Pink Tools. They are best known for the various hand tools, power tools, tool sets, and tool kits designed for women. What impresses me most about this company though is that they have put together a program where, for each tool purchased, they are donating 10% of the proceeds towards breast cancer research with hopes of finding a cure.

What a wonderful idea - get a good tool kit to help at home and provide tools for women everywhere to help in the elimination of breast cancer.

If you're in the market for tool sets designed for women, I would encourage you to give these a close look and support a company that supports you.
