Tool of the Month: Hammer

A valentine to my husband? Yes, my husband has been saying for several years that Home Deport or Lowe's should have a tool of the month club. They could give a discount and show you how to use it.

So to honor him, I have started a tool of the month. As a woman, I have my own tools and use them constantly. Besides, we need to know how to do things around the home.


So here is a beautiful pink hammer. Mine is not as pretty. The one end is to hammer things into the wall.... you don't have to use a rolling pin, shoe, book, etc. The other end, that looks like a claw, is used to pry lose nails.

With the correct hammer, I built this fireplace mantle.

I built these shelves.


So ladies, go buy a hammer and start your tool box.

  2. Okay, I knew I loved you for a reason! Remind me to tell you about my drill "accident" and the $6,000 paper towel holder. It's a good one. But I STILL remain the handy one in our marriage.

    You are amazing!

    And I want that tulip arrangement on your coffee table. Did you make it?.....

  10. A few years ago I wondered why there weren't any "pink" or different colored hammers out there just for us girls. Thank goodness now there are. On the shelves you built I noticed that you too have one of those "create" stand-up signs. Why can everyone but me find one? Where did yours come from? Hobby Lobby used to have one. Ballard has one now but it is so expensive I hestitate to get it. Thanks. Nice work on the shelves.
