Garden Tools Review

I am so ready for Spring.  We had a very rough and unusual winter for Tennessee.  We  had over 8 inches of snow.  We have not had that much snow is over 15 years. Spring could not come soon enough.  With spring comes planting flowers, and  I am so exctied about that .

gardenYou have to have the proper tools in order to plant flowers.  I was so happy when I was given the opportunity to test this Garden Tool Set out.  It comes with 4 pieces as shown in the picture.  It has 2 rakes, a shovel and gloves.

The rake was something I had not had in the past, so I was anxious to try it out.  I had large rakes but not the small hand held one.  It is too early to start planting flowers but it is not to early to get the beds ready.  I used the rake to get all the dead leaves and grass away from the plants that are already starting to come up.  The rake for very easy to use and worked very well.  It was small enough that it did not harm the plants like the large ones do sometimes.

The gloves were a little big for me but I could still use them.  I have small hands so a lot of gloves are big on me.  I liked that they had grip dots on them to make them non slip.  I use gloves any time I am gardening.  I do not like getting dirt under my nails.  I do like to garden but not the getting dirty part.

I would recommend this for any level of gardener.  They are well made.  I dropped the rake a few times and it did not break and the prongs of the rake did not break or bend.  The price is reasonable, which is a major plus for the set.

I am happy with the set and can not wait to use it to plant my flowers.  My favorite flowers are pansey’s .  What is your favorite flower?

Chalk Marker Review

We are absolutely in love with art in my house. My daughter was one of a handful of upcoming freshman given the opportunity to take High School art as a freshman. Those slots are usually saved for the upperclassman. She was so excited to get the opportunity and I was one proud mom.

I had these chalk markers that needed to be tried, so who better than the Art girl Brookster to try them out.

She was so excited that I gave her free range on the glass front door in order to show how great these markers are. Here is a picture of my somewhat clean front door before she takes her artistic ability to it. front doorHere is Brookster working on her master piece.   My front door my never be the same again. lol  I love it so much watching her grow and develop in her artistic endeavors.

What Mommy says:

I really do love these markers.  You have to shake them in order to get the chalk down to the tip of the maker.  Brookster uses a scrape piece a paper to help get the marker started before she stars drawing.   They come in a very bright colors.  The one thing I really like about these markers is that they come with this Silicone holder that comes FREE.  You are not even paying for the holder.  I like having a place to put the markers after you are finished using them.  The markers should be stored tip down in order for the chalk to be able to stay in the tip of the marker.

What Brookster says:

She says they are amazing.  The ink comes out fast which allows you to draw and write better than some of the other chalk markers she has used in the past.   She thinks the bright colors are awesome.  She loves anything bright and these are defiantly that    Here is the end result of Master Peace

doorI think it turned out really great.  It washes off very easily with soap and water.  I think these are a win/win in our house.  I love that it gave her an artisitic outlet that involves other mediums other than pencil and paper.  Brookster wins because she gets to play and draw with a different type of marker that she has been used to.  We will also be using these to mark on the car when we go to ball games this fall.
