My mother-in-law is amazing. She is funny, smart, and active. She is also incredibly hard on lawnmowers. She goes through them almost as fast as she goes through her Caffeine-free Diet Coke. There are probably three mowers by my father-in-law’s shop that she’s broken and he hasn’t fixed. She was recently lamenting the fact that she has no lawnmower for mowin’ weeds. She can’t use her lawn-lawnmower for the weeds because she’ll ruin it (and then she’d have NO mower…). She told me of her need for something cheap and light that she could be hard on and not worry about.
After a few coats of paint we now have a Mother’s Day gift fit for a grandma.
I’m sure the paint won’t last forever, but it sure makes the gift a little more personalized.
I thought some fabric on the handle might make gripping it more comfortable and I always like to tie the clutch down.
I know it’s pretty ghetto-fabulous but she’s going to think of us every time she mows.
I can’t wait to show you the card I dreamed up today to accompany the mower.
What are you all working on for your moms and grandmas? Any great ideas for those of us who have to send our momma’s gift in the mail? Sorry Mom, I’m not mailing you a mower.
