One grandfather was a mechanic. One grandfather was an electrician–as is my father. Together they taught me that every girl should know how to change a tire, change the oil in a car, and rewire household fixtures with little to no assistance. I’m not sure how many of those lessons I took to heart, but I do know my Phillips to my flat-head. I know every girl should have tools all her own — and I’m pretty sure those tools should be a reflection of her style.
Take this hammer-screwdriver set, for instance . . .
A modern take on the basics . . . just the basics. Perfect for those little projects that don’t break a sweat. An added feature: the built-in excuse; after all, if you haven’t the tools to get the job done, you can’t possibly be expected to do it yourself!*
*My poor, poor grandpas; if they were around to see this post, they’d be so disappointed. My dad? Well, considering he’s usually the one I call to finish the job, he’d probably be the least bit surprised.
