Some girls want jewelry....
Some girls want jewelry for their birthday, others want fancy vacations... but I'm not your average girl. What do I want???? Tools!!!!! This is what my sweetie gave me for my birthday this year. It was a complete surprise (although I have been whining about needing my own tools for all my projects. ) I mean, you can't go ask your husband every time you want to hang a picture or refinish a piece of furniture can you??? Well now I don't have to!!! Yippee!!!
The box was huge and inside each and every package of tools was beautifully wrapped in my husband's favorite wrapping paper. What is that you ask???? Newspaper of course!
Pliers and wire cutters of every size and shape for every project from large to small...
New paint brushes, painters tape, spackle knives, dust masks, and primer..... (oh I'm getting all excited!)
Sandpaper for my Mouse sander, (the best all purpose sander out there in my opinion) a coping saw and very chic eye protection.
Screwdrivers with magnetic tips, a small square with a built in level, and a 30' tape measure with nice BIG numbers so it's easy to read. (I'm not as young as I used to be.)
Now I will never again have to bug my guy to go find this tool or that one whilst in the middle of a project, and to top it all off... everything matches!
I have the best husband in the whole word. Diamonds???? Bahhh!! Who needs them?
