This time of year, I find I have to spend a good amount of time, gathering tools. I am a notorious slob when it comes to gardening….tools are left everywhere and as things start to die back, I find hand tools that were abandoned sometime in June.
Many times, I have thought that I should make extra effort to organize and even take special care of my tools, but I largely feel successful if I can get them all gathered before the first snowfall.
Nonetheless, I gathered up these great ideas for tool care. The kids are out of school today (Happy Veterans Day) and I am in search of a project that will make me feel productive while not fighting the natural distracting forces that having them in my work space creates. I think its tool and barn cleaning day.
If I were really organized, I would spend a few hours in the barn like an old yankee with this handsome kit (below). I imagine my barn’s walls covered in beautiful tools for every chore and meticulously cared for so that nothing is ever broken, dull, or unworthy of keeping.
Are these beautiful images inspiring you to do some Autumn tool care? I am curious, what do you to take care of your tools or organize them? I could use a few tips.
