Power Tools Make Great Birthday Gifts!

Another year older and another year wiser,
at least I would like to think so...

As far as I remember I am at least.

I am 56 today and I've been blessed with a beautiful family,
a supportive husband, and now a gorgeous grandson...
What more could a woman want? 

Power tools!

 I've got everything else I need... 
and it's the perfect gift for that DIY kinda gal.

Power tools.

One year I got a chop saw... another year, a table saw.

You can visit my basement workshop here.

This year? 

No, I didn't ask for a bag, clothes, or shoes...

An electric stapler/nail gun is on my wish list...

This is the actual photo hint I sent out to my family.

Because this is what I love... 
to create pretty things and to use cool tools to do it.

I have been blessed to have a passion for creating 
that brings me so much joy.

So on my birthday I'd like to send out a big 


 for following Homeroad and for helping me
fulfill my passion!

  1. A Ryobi Airstrike for Christmas, an impact driver for my birthday, and new batteries for our anniversary- my guy is more than happy to get us, I mean me :), tools as gifts!

  2. Happy birthday! I would love to have a workshop and get tools for my birthday! Maybe when we buy a house...

  3. Susan, do you have any thoughts on a good paint sprayer? Every year I say I am going to get one to spray my 20 plus pieces of white wicker. I go through so much Krylon , I think it would pay for itself after 2 seasons. I am not a fan of the chippy look, so I paint it every year.

  4. happy birthday i enjoy your blog hope you get a ton of tools xx

  5. Happy belated birthday Susan! My family knows how to win my heart--the same way, with power tools! (or home depot gift cards)

    We're not getting older, we're getting better!
